Hi bees! I survived 4 days of heart tests, and it turns out my heart is fine. This little exercise got me to thinking about how much bf means to me, how much it sucks to be without health insurance (he has it through his work, so if we got married, so could I), and what would happen if I got really sick or died and how would he have the authority to act on my wishes? Basically it made me kinda want to have an emergency wedding! I haven’t totally said that outright to him. We have been talking marriage for a while now and working through dif books that help prepare you for a re-marriage (i’m 49 and he’s 48). The bill for the ambulance alone is $1700, then another $2200 for a few hours in the emergency room. And that’s just part of day one. I have applied for financial mercy through the hospital. And I also just got to apply for a state-funded health plan, but don’t know if they would backdate it to cover all this crap. My daughter’s cat bit me last fall and that cost me $500 out of pocket and I work part time! I feel that if he really loves me he will propose and get me on his insurance ASAP. I can’t believe I just wrote that, it seems petty and selfish. But, dammit, it’s practical. And also I would hope that, after having this week to consider life without me (they thought I had a blocked artery and went in to check), he would be motivated to whip out his proposal. Thanks for letting me vent. Love ya!
