How To Balance Money And Health
Money and health are tightly connected. And, when thinking of the two, millions of Americans are stressed out! Often, people will skip going to the doctor or avoid seeking health care because they are afraid of their hospital bill. What a way to live! But, sadly, many people, including women, in America do this. We also have a lot of negative things to say about money that doesn’t help our health situation.
I know when I was growing up, our family avoided going to the doctor unless it was absolutely horrible. Routine things like getting braces – which I eventually got when I became an adult – were simply out of the question. These kinds of things are simply out of the question for most families!
Do you remember my story of my friends Jhaysonn who was suffering from Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma? His father and mother desperately raised money on a GoFundMe page to raise money for his healthcare. If it were not for healthcare laws that made it illegal to ban healthcare from individuals with pre-existing conditions, he would have certainly died sooner. As a result, I am a major proponent of mental health awareness and healthcare access for all – no matter what your income level is. Obviously, access to healthcare should not be limited only to the rich. And, we must talk about this painful and politically charged subject on the basis of how we feel about money and health as mutually exclusive subjects.
That is why I was a guest on The Autoimmune Hour to talk about the serious impacts of money and health when things get tough. Also, join the Women’s Financial Freedom Tour to have a frank conversation about money.
Have you experienced a health challenge? Have you ever had to choose between money and health?
