Chronic Illness and Financial Security

There is absolutely no area of your life that is unaffected when you’re living with chronic illness. This includes your financial stability, of course.

I’ve been making a concerted effort to slowly pay off my substantial medical debt. This is debt that was incurred while having health insurance, by the way.

Now, I’ll soon be having my twentieth throat dilatation surgery. This will again result in significant charges.

The stress of facing recurrent medical interventions is only multiplied by the unpleasant realization that I have recently lost my monthly disability benefits.

  1. I would be insane by now. Losing benefits NC you so want to work! I worry you are harming yourself working more than you should. Financial debt while insured… USA.
