last week i realized that my stimulus incentive was running out for my cobra health insurance and thus my next payment would be almost $400. i applied for some individual plan health insurance sort of as a whim, not believing i’d be approved because of this bullshit problem i had a few years ago that turned out to be nothing, but mention ‘lymph node biopsy’ to an insurance company and they act like you have the plague. but lo and behold – i was approved! huzzah! i related all of this to eric which prompted him to send me this image (artist unknown):

preexisting condition LOL
