American health Care System Sucks!
I have to vent. I can not believe our health care system in America. They say we are fighting for freedom! Well, isn't it our freedom to have a child. I would think so. But no...it cost $30,000 for one cyle of IVF, meds, and blood work and crazy uncomfortable sonograms, and such! Each doctor's appointment is 3-400 dollars! Are you freakin kidding me!!! Oh- and then if you miscarry..oh no- you have to pay another $15,ooo. This drives me mad! I am going into my first IVF appointment in January, but this frightens me. I am going to go through months of torture and mood swings. What if I miscarry. I am crying with fear this is going to happen. everyone is telling me, you have to keep positive, this is not going to happen to you. Okay- really...how can you predict this. And how can doctors charge for a second, third, or fourth time. It seems immoral. I am wondering if this is some sort of conspiracy. Is it just me or does it seems like some of these places are just a business. They are making a lot of money..and we are their guinney pigs! Okay- I am just a little dramatic right now. But trust me, I was way more out of control a few hours ago. I spoke to this sweet women who is in the same position as all of us. She tried the Ivf procedure, she was successful, and then a miscarriage. And now she can not afford the second cycle. This is not fair! I cried for an hour after hearing this! I was going to workout at the gym, but I was crying hysterically. So then I ran up and down in the rain. I was hysterically crying. This hurts too much. This is such a crazy roller coaster. I am just so sad this woman can not afford to try for another cycle. Life just isn't fair:(
