As much as I try to stay away from responsibility, it seems hell bent to follow me wherever I go. I tried to organize my "adult duties" earlier this year by getting in touch with an accountant to take care of my taxes, loan, and insurance policies. It went well for a while, but there are some things that I have to do myself.
I have always had medical insurance when I had a steady day job, but I haven't had one since I went became a professional naptaker - among many other things. We don't have very good social services (some basic things, but definitely not coverage such as Medicare part D plan), and if you want decent coverage, you'll have to get a private policy.
Just thinking about these things is making me dizzy again - which is why I found myself thinking of health insurance and the like in the first place. Being an adult is so complicated, but one can whine as much as one wants, right? ;)
