THE HIGH COST OF CARE

“To broke to get sick.”


AN UNAFFORDABLE SYSTEMĀ 

Ever get the feeling that your cost of healthcare is just too much to bare. This is the feeling that millions of Americans are faced with daily. Especially during this time period when we arr in the middle of pandemic. One need to ask themselves that in the case they are sick they are covered for the cost of care. And the problem is that so many people aren’t able to pay. When you are unable to do so then you are given the bare minimum of care that falls in line with what you afford. Which is as minimal as one without insurance. You would think you are getting something worth having until you get sick. That’s when you’ll find out what your insurance can really do for you.

A BROKEN SYSTEM

What do you do when you are in an environment that does not serve the people? Yes, sure people you can afford it the system works for them. But most people can’t afford the high cost of healthcare. And even when you pay you’re still not insured. You can pay for years on end, and need financing for a sickness and get treated as if you have never paid. You would think insurance works like this, you pay for twenty five years. Then you find yourself short a good deal of money and they look at all the money you have paid into the system. And you get some sort of credit. But for some reason it does not work that way. What you really end up doing is paying for your funeral, and sometimes you can’t even afford to die.

ALL YOU CAN DO IS PRAY

Hope sometimes seem like a bottomless pit. But what else can you do bu hope. Costs aren’t getting any smaller and people are in need year by year. So unless the government is prepared to intervene you will have a continuous generation of people who cant pay.

HYGIENE SAYS A LOT: HOW YOUR HYGIENE IS VITAL TO YOUR HEALTH

Woman Washing Her Face With Water

“Washing the body.”


daily regimen

When I go home each night after work, I hop in the shower, then shower when I wake up. So that makes two per day, sometimes three depending on the activity. Why, well some of you might think it’s about the body smell. But me I think about the health associated with showering. As a man, there are places on you that can gather dirt if you are not getting the daily showers you are supposed, as well as women. I don’t want to gross anyone out, but, if you don’t shower regularly as a guy, you can develop the dirt between the thigh and the genitals. This caked up dirt is grim that comes from you not having the two showers per day especially in the summer, when you might need three.

watch the food you eat

If you are consuming certain foods, it will effect the way you smell. And no one really would truly want to believe this, but it’s true. If you are eating fast food all the time like McDonald’s, you will develop a smell from the food you eat. You also will start to develop a breathe smell as well. So, if you plan on being alone in your personal life, then fine, smell how you want; oh yeah and being unemployed. But otherwise, you might want to think about freshening up. But back to the food, eat foods that are more fresh like I don’t know, fruits and veggies. You like eating meat, fine, then baked chicken breast are better to consume than fried chicken.

“reach” for the stars

Let me just be straight forward, you have to get deep in all the crevasses. And when I say that, I mean, bending over and digging in those hard to reach places and if you’re a guy like me, lifting, “wink wink” certain things wiping underneath. And you want to scrub those areas, not wash. You scrub because you have to take into consideration that scrubbing gets rid of bacteria. But the reach areas don’t stop at shower, you have to reach in areas after with oils also. And that is something that I do, after the shower rub my body down with proper oils and maybe a dab of powder in certain areas. Oh yeah, wear certain underwear when you dress. And yes, I know all this sounds excessive, but it’s not. Living in New York City, you’re constantly around large crowds so you are aware of smells in this city.
