In 2009 at the age of 25 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I am sick and in pain every day of my life. Self-employed, the only insurance I can get is with our state high risk pool. My medications cost thousands of dollars a month. My 63-year-old mother, a retired school teacher, now works to help me stay afloat financially and pay my medical bills. I want to live to see her enjoy retirement. If republicans are elected in 2012, they want to do away with government-funded healthcare. I do not want to live my life in a wheelchair or die young of complications of untreated RA.
I am the 99%.
