So back in September there was a giant clusterfuck with my insurance not recognizing my disability and not being able to afford my meds. I went through withdrawal and everything. My mom and I spent a solid week on the phone working to get put back on. Now, two months later, a letter came in the mail stating due to my disability - I'm officially covered on my mom's insurance until January 1st 2024. HALLELUJAH!

For those of you outside the USA with socialized healthcare let me explain what this means. It means that until I'm 37 no matter what happens, I have health insurance and can get health care without worrying about it breaking me financially. Til I finish graduate school and get my career moving, I dont have to fear losing my psych meds or getting sick. I can just live. It's a huge relief. I'm protected. I'm safe.

That is freaking awesome. I am SO GLAD this shit has changed. I remember when I got kicked off my parents insurance back when I was 21 (before Obamacare), and it BLEW. I couldn't take psych meds I needed, or see a doctor, or anything, and in fact I just spent today paying off thousands of dollars of debt from back then. SO HAPPY FOR YOU!
