I don’t think I’m the only one issues regarding getting sick! My dad we’ll always tell me that he “doesn’t do the whole sick thing because getting sick is a waste of time.” That is usually the case. But not this winter. He totally got sick and he had to use cough drops like a billion times a day. Yet, he was still convinced that if he didn’t miss work, he wasn’t sick.
Explaining that “being sick” had nothing to do with how he spent his time while he was sick was kind of tricky. Needless to say, he never went to visit the doctor. If he had, he probably would have been advised to purchase some kind of prescription medication that would help him through his illness. We would have gone to the closest local pharmacy to buy it and then moved on with our lives.
One of my greatest fears is losing my life savings to purchase ridiculous quantities of medicine to combat some strange disease. Nevertheless, I would hate to see anyone I love to stay sick because of their financial situation! The next time I need to go to the doctor and get medication, it would be nice to know that I’m not going to go broke from the cost.
