Oh, wild, you don't have health insurance?

None of my business, really, but I'm going through so much trauma and stress right now because my sister doesn't have health insurance.

It's not just getting sick...what if you fell really hard on the ice, or someone rammed the WM and you bumped your head, or anything else that might put you out of commission...in a coma...whatever.

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but even if you just got health insurance that had an outrageous deductible, but that would cover you in case of a huge catastrophe, wouldn't that make you sleep easier?

I know you know all of this, but I've spent so many hours advocating (read: screaming and yelling) for my sister so that she'll get adequate care, and a lot of that is because she doesn't have insurance.
