I came to realization recently that I may very well be one of hundreds or thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of Americans that are uninsured.
Meaning I no longer have health insurance.
I vaguely remember last June/July when I was trying to think ahead to my last doctor, dentist and eye doctor visits.
Which means those visits I made when I was home at the end of May were it for me.
It's a status that just a couple years ago seemed unimaginable. You see, I have been blessed in my life. I really have never wanted for anything.
But now I find myself graduated from college, without permanent employment and uninsured.
So I have decided to make an effort to be as safe as possible. No longer will I speed, skip my vitamins or not floss. Who knows the next time I will have professional help.
In fact, I may very well take to wearing protective gear at all times.
My new motto: safety first.
Or at least until I have insurance again, then all bets are off.
