Health Insurance Gripe

I probably should not even complain...I know that I am really lucky to even have health insurance-much less great health insurance (I feel for those who do not) but the other day I got a lovely letter in the mail...it let us know that starting in 2009, my monthly insurance rate would skyrocket by 30% (it was already pretty pricey). It just stinks because they know I do not have a choice. They know I won't get picked up by other insurance companies because of my cancer history. If we tried to negotiate, they'd just raise the deductible (to lower the monthly payment) which would end up costing us more in the long run...frustrating. As my friend used to say, It's like being between a rock and a hard place...

Just venting...thanks for listening!

Today, I am grateful for my family, friends, the help of others in SO many ways, and of course, God.
