As an adult survivor of physical and psychological abuse, many of my struggles are with internalized negative messages about my worth as a person.
I win more often than not, but mastering the illness takes patience,
energy, skill and a good therapist.
Without a federally funded program like Medicare, I would live at the
mercy of my symptoms.
Access to effective treatment has almost made me well enough to
return to work.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness: these three unalienable rights
require equal access to essential services for all citizens.
Healthcare is a human right, not a privilege of the rich.
