  •  I was thinking that (0+ / 0-)

    as well.  I have a friend with pancreatitis.  She began to get sick after she spent time in Africa and got a parasite that wreaked havoc.

    Lenny, this is insane.  The whole system, obviously.  However, until we force some sanity down the throats of the insurance industry killing us, you need to get to the bottom of this before serious damage may be done.  I don't know what state you are in or the details of your financial situation, but just go to the doctor (GI guy) and let them set up a payment plan for you and if you can make your payments, great, if you can't, well, at least you will be functioning.  You can't put money first in this situation even though the entire industry is set up that way.

    I have done the same thing from time to time and yes, my credit took a serious hit.  But I am still alive to tell.

    Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!
