Health Update – Blogging Away Debt Blogging Away Debt


I’ve met with lots of specialists over my health mess (cha-CHING!). There were lots of conversations, lots of statements of ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with you’. There didn’t seem to be any consistency in what was causing the problem. I had the joy of paying over $1,000 for the slew of tests they ordered. After months of absolute misery and a lot of frustrated crying, they gave me a diagnosis and a corrective action plan. I didn’t like it. I thought they were wrong but I did it anyway just so I could tell them how wrong they were when the plan failed.

Except it didn’t.

It’s been 30 days since I was last sick. I’m back to running and my hair is starting to grow in. It’s a big lifestyle change and it’s permanent but it’s so nice to know what’s wrong that I almost don’t care.

Almost. It still sucks.

I’m hoping this is the end of it. Hospitals and specialists are so darn expensive. But on a positive note, my HSA plan was the best thing in this case. I didn’t have to ask for referrals to specialists; I could just go – and it was a specialist who figured it out. HSA’s are great if you are really healthy OR really sick. I’ve always assumed I would fall into the ‘really health’ category; it was a relief to have when I slid into the ‘really sick’. Again, HSA’s aren’t the solution for everyone! Research, research, research, and make a decision based on your needs.

Feels great to be (almost) normal again. But I think I’ll keep the short hair.
