My name is Kelsey, and I run fuckyeahhope, or at least I used to before I stopped posting here. My personal blog is the-vashtanerada; some of you follow me on there.
If you could do me a favor, I would appreciate it. I was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, and I had open heart surgery when I was fifteen months old. I had a valve missing, and they reconstructed one for me. Now, I’m an adult, and my heart has grown, but the valve has not. I am basically going into congestive heart failure. I have no money because I cannot work, I’ve had to quit college because of this, and every insurance company I’ve applied to has turned me down because of my pre-existing conditions.
If you could read my story and pass it on, I would be incredibly grateful. The link is below. If you have questions, contact me on my personal blog (I also have an in-depth blog posted there, accessible on the sidebar of my Tumblr).
Aaaaaargh I fucking hate the US medical system so fucking much and shit like this is exactly why.
Socialised medicine is the way. There’s no debate to be had. If you’re against it, you’re allowing people to die and suffer.
Also, when people say that activism/awareness online is pointless? It literally saves people’s lives and this is an example of that
