Just received over $9000- in medical bills. What does a person with no income and no way of earning income do? People may think I'm extravagant, spending $22- on slippers or $15- on "Hamlet" but it's a drop in the bucket to my real expenses that keep me beyond poor. There's a reason I've had social workers trying to help me get aid. My alimony isn't a drop in my medical expenses bucket.
