  •  Two thoughts...... One, I disagree with the (4+ / 0-)

    premise that you have no value if you are childless. While it sucks that you have been made to feel that way and it certainly isn't fair, I personally don't feel that way at all. I have two grown children, whom I love more than life itself. With that said, I think it's awesome that some folks decide to not have children. You have a freedom in so many ways that parents will never ever experience. So embrace it, revel in it, and realize you are actually very special and have many advantages as a result of not having children!!!!

    Two..... you shouldn't haven't to have children to be worthy of medical care. WTF is up with that shit!!!  That's is just grotesque and cruel. I guess one can't expect much living in AZ..... home of the nutters, land of the insane!!  I have a friend with Lupus here in L.A. who is childless and unable to work due to his illness. He gets incredibly good care thru USC County Hospital. It's a total pain-in-the-ass to work the system, but he does, and he is alive because of it. Not having money means you probably can't move to another state, but just an idea.

    Best of luck to you, this is a cruel country to live in right now. One bright spot is that Obamacare will go into effect in slightly less than a year. I hope that helps you immensely and makes it possible to get your needed care.

    Corporations before people.... it's the American way!
