I’m freaking out! No work yet, and Obamacare is a fucking joke!

I am completely overwhelmed right now.  We have been without employment income now for over 2 months.  We lost our stability, security, and our insurance.  Cris has found odd jobs here and there to get a little cash but nothing with a paycheck.  I started reading the A+ manual to get certified in case I have to go to work but it is becoming clear to me that in order for me to actually study, I would have to leave the house several times a week to do so.  So, that looks like a bust.  I have applied several places for a job but haven’t heard anything whatsoever.

Today, we looked into getting insurance and found that family plans start at around $500/month.  Nice.  So, we did the unthinkable and followed the ca.gov link to the obamacare website to see what they have to offer.  This, being the “affordable care act” insurance, there has got to be something that will correct at least this problem.  After spending an hour on their site submitting all of our personal data to a government agency… all they were able to tell me is that we currently qualify for Medi-Cal.  Seriously?  That is the stupidest fucking piece of shit qualification that I have ever heard of.  Medi-Cal is the foodstamps of insurance plans.  Medi-Cal is also completely unhelpful since it still denies us access to our Pediatrician, and our many other doctors that we like and don’t want to switch from.  Medi-Cal is the insurance that is only taken by the shitty over-booked, loud, crowded doctor’s offices that make you wait several hours before being seen.  This is NOT HELPFUL.

Then there is the fact that i cannot work unless I find a daycare for Bronson.  Since he is still in diapers, the rate is automatically more than a child because of the demand he requires.  When I googled “daycare”, the first thing that popped up was a family who want justice for their kid who died  while in the care of a daycare facility.  NICE.  That is JUST what I needed to see…………… Google was sooo NOT HELPFUL in this situation.

If we pay for daycare ($500 to $600) just so we can get insurance,… then I might as well just find and pay for insurance.  This whole thing is wrecking my brain.
