Struggling With Illness   Healthcare

Limping to work, stopping in the library on the way, for a break.  Getting medical coverage for her hip replacement required finding a new job.


I always took healthcare for granted.  I’d had it at Burberry, then I got the job at Bank of America, [the paperwork] should have gone through, something went wrong with it…. I figured it wasn’t worth it, I didn’t like the job, so I quit.  Then they said they’d grant me healthcare…but I’d have to wait 90 days.  I said frankly it would destroy me.
