Look, I don't know, this whole thing where people are about to run out of health care and die, and there is an auction to help them, it leaves me so pissed off and sad. The latest, [livejournal.com profile] denelian, has health care through college, and is still out $300/mo for meds; and because of the pain and inability to sit or stand for more than a half-hour or so, she hasn't been able to finish her degree quick enough and so she's going to lose her scholarship and health care and be unable to pay for meds. She can get a 3-month extension on the health care for $600, if she can get that money (plus a month of meds money) by Friday. And after that? I guess the hope is that the SSDI will come through for her despite having turned her down, aforementioned "turning a person down several times" I believe being the way of the SSDI. I mean seriously has anyone ever needed SSDI and just gotten it. I have not heard of such a thing. And unlike every other government program where you get automatically turned down for the first few attempts and crash on the couch of the creepy guy you don't like, or feed your kids out of dumpsters, or go live in a nursing home and pay so very much more, when you get turned down for SSDI you run out of money and die. So, yeah.

Anyway, I saw [livejournal.com profile] denelian around during racefail and have a good impression of her... And there are crocheted ponies and nice wool yarn and other interesting things at the auction community for her. [livejournal.com profile] save_liz Might want to check it out.
