With medical bills coming to fruition, I often wonder to myself if it is worth it to seek mental healthcare. Who do I pay, the clinics or my prescriptions? Budgeting is important, but when you are in crisis, does it matter? I have struggled with this reality for a couple of months now, if I just wasn’t ill and had problems or issues, maybe I wouldn’t be in medical debt. So for the next few weeks, as I struggle with panic attacks and anxiety attacks, I will now know that there is a hidden cost at the clinic I go to, that was not denoted. Do I pick my meds over food? Do I pick mental health over gas? Do I just give it all up and end it all? These are important questions and are one of the main reasons I believe we should have some sort of basic healthcare rights in this nation. If you are too sick, you shouldn’t be robbing Peter to pay Paul. This is fucked up and it shouldn’t stand! Please comment below with your stories of medical bill piling up.
