So incredibly excited to launch #ReminagineThisPatientStory - a social media project that I have been slowly and passionately developing over the last several years. This series of posts will feature fictional patient experiences and narratives to raise awareness about important public health issues facing vulnerable patient populations and communities. Medical bankruptcy is a growing problem facing many patients and families in our country. If you or someone you know is suffering from uncontrollable medical debt, please know that you are not alone and the resources in this post may be able to help you! If you have a patient story or a resource that may benefit others feel free to comment below or visit www.drleesquitieri.com and send us a message. Finally, thank you to the incredible @nihdeep @thesharedmicroscope @fancycomma @taylorkarabaich @designstrength for helping me bring these stories to life on social media and hopefully benefit patients with public health needs. #heatlhcarepolicy #healthcare #policy #medicalbankruptcy #bankruptcy #public #health #publichealth #publichealthissue #medicaldebt #personalfinance #inequality #debt #debtfree #debtfreejourney #mompreneur #creditscore #fixmycredit #healthinsurance #medical #insurance #medicalinsurance #GoFundMe #reimaginebeautyreimaginehealth #socialmediaforgood

Before you can take control of your finances you have to take ownership of how you got to where you are now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we first started living a frugal lifestyle I wanted to have something to blame our circumstances on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth was we were solely responsible for the state of our finances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨I chose to open credit cards without educating myself first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨When buying our first house we chose to just compare the mortgage to what we were paying in rent instead of looking at all the other expenses that come along with home ownership. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨We chose to take out lots of student loans assuming it would all work itself out later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨We chose to have Abe step away from his job for a season to have more time at home going from two incomes to one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But here’s the thing... I wouldn’t change any of those choices. They shaped us into who we are and I learned so much from each of those experiences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can now say that I own those choices. It wasn’t anyone’s fault. We live in an age where you can literally learn about anything you want for free on the internet, personal finance included.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I encourage you to do a personal audit of your financial choices. If you’re not where you want to be, why is that? If you had the power to turn it around (spoiler alert, you do! ) what would your first step be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #personalresponsibility #ownership #frugallivingforbeginners #frugalliving #creditcarddebt #studentloans #medicaldebt #moneygoals #babysteps #daveramseybabysteps #intentionalliving #frugalmom #gettingoutofdebt #changingourfamilytree #noexcuses #droptheexcuses #bayareamom #brentwoodca

Hi #financefriends ! We are halfway through the week! YAY! Pat yourself on the back for getting this far 😊! Do you ever go into a store and find yourself buying things that you don't need? C'mon we've all been there before. One way to combat this habit is to plan your purchases before you shop. Ask yourself before you make that purchase, "Do I really need this"? If No, put that item back on the counter. If yes, make the purchase because it will give you long-term value and you actually need it. Comment below if you agree, or if you have any tips on how you can save money. Follow @jamilastwocents for more #moneymanagementmagic and #personalfinancetips 🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑 #jamilastwocents #money #savings #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debtfreegoals #investing #blackblogger #milennialmoney #financialindependence #financialliteracy #financialgoals #moneygoals #blackwealth #blackfinancialliteracy #debtrepayment #creditcarddebt #medicaldebt #studentloan #mortgageloan #carloan #consumerdebt #generationalwealth #blackwealth #genderpaygap #wealthgap

Happy Hump Day! Just a quick recap on our DFJ. We paid off $101,087 of Medical Debt Including interest in 845 days (27 months ) with a daily pay-off rate of $119.62 We are a one Income family of four. We lived on the daily living rate & below our means to be able to accomplish this goal. As of September 1st we started the journey to Mortgage Freedom with a starting balance of $212,722.80 and a goal of December 31st 2025 to have a zero balance and be 100% Debt Free. It's a big Goal and a long Road ahead of us....But we are so ready and honestly we feel we served our time and completed the apprenticeship while paying off the $101,087 😜 Fun fact: On March 4th 2018 we started the DFJ and our 1st Snowball payment was $1.87 that was all we had remaining in the budget for the month. It was also the birth of the #dailylivingrate at that time our minimum payment to debt was $1,997 a month, twice our mortgage payment. It was eating us alive financially #Disabilityawareness #medicaldebt #debtfreeexceptthemortgage #debtfreecountdown #DebtFreecommunity #snowballpayment #principalmortgagepayment #irishdebtfreecommunity #fugalliving #dailylivingrate #dailydebtpayoffrate #mortgagefreejourney #mortgagefreecommunity #Firecommunity #ukdebtfreecommunituy #fireretirement #firewealth #homebrew #medicallycomplexfamily #oneincomefamilyoffour #debtfree #bs6

𝔹𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕤, 𝕓𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕤, 𝕓𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕤 💸 💸 💸 💸 ⁣ ⁣ Let's face it. Americans are struggling with medical debt. Medical debt is the top reason that people, regardless of age, would consider cashing in their 401(k )s, retirement savings, or end with an onlyfans page.⁣ ⁣ Everyone is not eligible for Medicaid or Medicare. Managing a chronic illness is super expensive, even after your co-pay. My anxiety reaches an all-time high when I see the cost for my infusions I do 2x a yr @ 33K.. 🙄 But what choice do I have? I can't stop a treatment that's saving my life. I can't afford not to work to be on disability. At times, I feel stuck. ⁣ ⁣ So please stop telling ppl they don't look sick if they are managing a chronic condition. 💉 You have no idea what financial hardship they are experiencing. ⁣ ⁣ For those who work, do you have an FSA or HSA? How do you manage? What are some proactive steps you have taken to negotiate those balances down or even pursue forgiveness? Any tips? ⁣ ⁣ #healthcarecostsaretoodamnhigh #Medicaldebt #healthcarecosts #healthcarechat #HCSM #money #medicalbills #medicalbilling #healthcare #chronicillness

A friend of mine asked me what financial tips I had for expecting a baby. And I couldn’t help but remember when I first had my daughter Raelyn and how paranoid I was as a first time mom. I would always go to the doctor for every little thing and I would feel a little relieved when having to do my budget. I was only relieved because we had money set aside for my first time mom craziness. That’s where the First Aid Kit for my budget always helped me out with unexpected motherhood expenses that are so common it’s crazy. Now that I have two toddlers the small unexpected expenses haven’t slowed down and hopefully the more experienced parents can give some other advice on that. But for now having an extra $100 that I don’t touch unless it’s necessary has been great for my budget. If nothing unexpected doesn’t happen it will eventually and we will be ready. #tbt Let me know how your preparing for small unexpected expenses in your budget? We all get them. Follow —-> @poisedfinancelifestyle _________________________________________________ Una amiga mía me preguntó qué consejos financieros tenía para una mamá esperando un bebé. Y no pude evitar recordar cuándo tuve a mi hija Raelyn por primera vez y lo paranoica que era como madre primeriza. Siempre iba al médico por cada pequeña cosa y me sentía un poco aliviado cuando tenía que hacer mi presupuesto. Solo me sentí aliviado porque teníamos dinero reservado para mi locura de mamá por primera vez. Ahí es donde el botiquín de primeros auxilios para mi presupuesto siempre me ayudó con gastos inesperados de maternidad que son tan comunes que es una locura. Ahora que tengo dos niños pequeños, los pequeños gastos inesperados no se han ralentizado y espero que los padres más experimentados puedan dar algún otro consejo al respecto. Pero por ahora tener $ 100 adicionales que no toco a menos que sea necesario ha sido excelente para mi presupuesto. Si no ocurre nada inesperado, eventualmente sucederá y estaremos listos. Déjame saber cómo te estás preparando para pequeños gastos inesperados en tu presupuesto. Todos los tenemos. Sigue —-> @poisedfinancelifestyle

Not the kind of crystals I usually talk about! Questionable "I didn't sleep at all last night because PAIN" humor. Seemed about right for Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, and Ehlers-Danlos​ Syndrome Awareness. All three conditions share this day of visibility, May 12th. They also share my faulty body, year round. I actually have an outstanding doctor who works magic with me with to keep my 10-ish prescriptions a month under $200!!, but that is a brand new development. I used to have to pick and choose, make a month last for three. The last few docs kept me alive and I'm grateful, but I have hope that this super smart doctor is going to help me find my way back to doing more than just survive. Thing is, on my own I couldn't afford, even with my mom generously keeping me on her health insurance as a disabled dependent, to pay the deductible and out-of-pocket expenses and the 10-80% copays, to keep actively pursuing better treatment and answers, especially once I lost my job for good (laid off for the 3rd & final time ) and my doctors started saying "disabled" at each appointment so I couldn't pretend I just needed one more month of rest and then I could go back. The only reason I have good care now is my mom's generosity again. I can't even drive myself to appointments, so she's doing SO MUCH to help me get answers and treatments that I have needed for a long time. The difference that makes is amazing, and my gratitude endless. ❤❤❤ I know most people don't have such an amazing opportunity when they become ill. I know because for years, most of my adult life, I was trapped in a vicious cycle where I just got sicker and poorer and was too stubborn and proud and in denial to ask for help that I desperately needed. #accurate #breakingbad #ObamaCare #savetheACA #affordablecareact #healthcare #medicaid #healthcareisaright #fucktrumpcare #preexistingcondition #waronthepoor #medicaldebt #spooniesunite #morbidhumor #cripplepunk #hospitalbills #universalhealthcare #iamapreexistingcondition #fibromyalgiaawareness #myalgicencephalomyelitis #MEawareness #awareness #raredisease #EDSawareness #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #hypothyroidism #SpinaBifida #millionsmissing #wearpurple #medicalzebra

The number one cause of bankruptcies in the United States is medical bills. Having an autoimmune disease is tough enough. Adding the additional burden of astronomical medicals bills just seems unfair. Where I live, the college I went to, shit... even my career has been carefully chosen with doctors, insurance, and medical bills in mind. I don't like to admit it, but Crohn's Disease has had a significant impact on not just my financial choices, but the economic decisions of my parents as well (I don't thank you enough mom ). This isn't a political post, and I don't have a proposed solution to fix this. I just want to say, it sucks! If you're feeling a financial weight on your shoulders due to your disease, know that you're not alone. It sucks, but with some clever thinking, you can make it work for you. Don't give up. . . . . . #ittakesguts #inflammatoryboweldisease #ostomybag #crohnslife #ostomylife #autoimmune #crohnsandcolitis #crohnswarrior #ostomates #colitis #ileostomy #ibdwarrior #ostomy #spoonie #medicalbills #debt #stoma #motivationmonday #barbiebutt #ostomyawareness #medicaldebt #butyoudontlooksick #chronicallyill #invisibleillness #crohnsdisease #uc #hair #ostomate

Yes, I want to be disciplined but I don't want to waste my 20's obsessing about my debt and delaying all gratification. I have to make sure I'm setting myself up not only financially for success but also physically and mentally. ☝🏻
