I need a drink now.

So I just signed up for ACA coverage—I got me some of that sweet, sweet, Obamacare! I joke, but he's done more for people with pre-existing conditions and those who wouldn't be able to get healthcare otherwise than any other president in recent memory.

That's what pisses me off about my family; they're all about the bootstraps until one of their own doesn't have any. In this case, it was me and my cousin. She has ulcerative colitis and is effectively disabled from it, having had multiple surgeries to save her life. My family only came around in support of ACA because I couldn't get coverage THROUGH WORK, and she couldn't marry her fiancé because doing so would end her state-covered benefits and his insurance wouldn't cover her pre-existing condition.


So anyway, the website is a joke. The Minnesota version was supposed to be "better," which is why it lost all my information when I input my husbands, and with each new option the visible window gets smaller and smaller until you cannot scroll on it, thus blocking the fucking ENTER button, and also why at the very end when I went to make my first payment, I had to switch to the iPad because it just sort of puked and passed out, I guess? I said it, the ACA websites are a drunk fraternity boy.

But, as of May 1 I'll have insurance for the first time in 3 1/2 years, and I can maybe get back on the good insulin, wheee!
