Heather's Fertility Diary: Health Insurance

Posted by on Feb 17, 2013 in Coping, Experience, Fertility, Support | Comments Off

As some of you may know, I have been off work due to surgeries and my poor health. I have been off of work since mid-October, and I have had to cover my portion of my health coverage premiums.

Since I have been off work, we have had to pay $266 every two weeks for healthcare coverage. $532 per month for insurance premiums is more than we can handle now.

I even had a good cry before my consultation. The next...

essay writing Before I begin to jump in on sharing my fertility journey, and my personal feelings and emotions regarding the issue, I think that I should give you a short biography about myself. For starters, my name is Heather Pickens. I grew up in the Midwestern region of the United States before relocating to Phoenix, Arizona in the spring of 2012. I am 26 years old, and have been married for four years. Like many of you, I live with endometriosis. I also have been diagnosed with two other chronic illnesses, Interstitial Cystitis and PFD. I launched the Hello Endo blog in December of 2012...
