I am NOT a patient person. So it shouldn't be that big of a surprise to anyone that knows me how frustrated I am that I've launched this site ON WEDNESDAY and I don't have one hundred stories yet.
Uh-huh. 100 stories.
I shared my frustration with a friend on Thursday (because I was already frustrated by Thursday) and he reminded me of the two obstacles that I'm currently facing: 1) People with ESIs now are in a "don't mess with a good thing" state of mind and 2) Many didn't know if they had a good or bad policy before the ACA.
I get it. I was part of that second group until my husband got sick. And then everything changed forever.
Before there was the ACA, before there was GoFundMe, before there was even Twitter ... people with employer sponsored insurance suffered financially or physically when they found their policies weren't all that great when they really needed them to be.
I know those stories are out there. I just have to fall into the right memory hole, I guess and bring them to the light of day again.
