My application for my new policy was declined, probably because I'm not a 21-year-old in perfect health. I can't switch to a different policy with my current provider unless I cancel my current coverage and reapply for the new policy. $5 says that if I do that, I get declined (because I'm not a 21-year-old in perfect health) and then I'm stuck without health insurance.
Yeah, ObamaCare has really made things better, hasn't it? Not only has my health insurance gone up $180 in six months; I'm locked into it and can't get a better policy.
All of this is incredibly goddamned infuriating, and it's just pounding home how utterly fucking helpless I am to do anything to improve my situation. I can't find a job; I can't control my costs; I can't even do anything fun because it's all too fucking expensive!
