My Life With a Pre-Existing Condition
The Nib

This makes me teary-eyed. I was diagnosed, at 45, with MS. I was already on SSA Disability for Seizures, so I was already covered by Medicare. However, now that coverage is in jeopardy.

I have no idea how much of my life is ahead of me. I know I’m on a timer, but with MS, I might never know how quickly that sand is flowing. My medicine costs between 45k and 60k per year without insurance, and I would NEVER be able to afford that.

Thank you for being a voice in the wilderness. We need more of them to lift us up.
