I'm 20 year sold and I attend college. I am in a bunch of debt due to such educational inhibitions, and on top of that I just recently found myself
swimming in medical debt? How?
Spontaneous collapsed lung.
I work 20 hours a week AND go to school full time at a college that is an hour from home. I stay at my parents house at the moment to save money. I
work at another college 20 minutes away for minimum wage (but its a nice job).
I have about a hundred bucks in the bank, over 10 grand of medical debt to add to my 6 grand of school loan debt. Thats 16 grand in the hole (not to
mention that used car I bought turned out to need repair every week it seems)
On top of it all, all the doctors did was give me a painkiller. Thats it, thats all they can do apparently. over 10 grand for a bottle of cheap
So lets sum this all up...
16 grand in the hole
working 20 hours a week at only minimum wage
...and denied medicaid. What gives!?
