An ER Nightmare: Hit to the Psyche and the Wallet

Star Lawrence is a fellow health and medical blogger, commenting almost daily on the state of American healthcare, and her experiences. She’s often funny, and she’s always to the point. One of those “I have to laugh so I won’t cry” types of commentary.

Star sent me a post to share with you, and it has been added to my Guest Posting section. Entitled A Stroke of True Genius, you’ll learn about her latest emergency room adventure, and the nightmare it has created to both her ability to make choices about her healthcare, and her wallet.

It was quite a different experience from my emergency room adventure of 14 months ago, which I shared with you afterwards.

But the bottom line to both posts is the same: being empowered isn’t optional. Our lives, and our life savings, depend on it.
