I have never blogged specifically about my health condition, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or about healthcare, but I do frequently become what I hope is a voice of reason when people dump on pro-health policies and programs like the Affordable Healthcare Act. As someone who has a disability but functions at an extremely high level with it, I feel compelled to speak for those who have not been so fortunate with their own conditions, whether they have Osteogenesis at my same level, one of the other levels, or a different disorder all together.
It is extremely barbaric in this day and age for an industrialized country to not have a nationalized healthcare system. The Affordable Healthcare Act improved things for a lot of us, but it is really only a baby step toward fixing the overall problems in our country. I always endeavor to attempt to reduce healthcare policies to the personal level where others see individual people instead of projecting a feeling about a political party into the equation. Most of my posts for the remainder of the month will probably reflect on this somewhat, so I just wanted to put that out there for anyone who will be offended.
Otherwise, I am excited to join this blogging challenge, as I have been wanting to turn my ace commentor status on healthcare and turn it into starting discussions instead of following them.
