My Healthcare Is Killing Me! : A Personal Journal
My healthcare is killing me! is one woman's journal as she battles cancer on an HMO. Throughout her ordeal, she is forced to confront indifferent medical workers, insensitive doctors, and ridiculous bureaucratic policies that prevent her from getting timely and appropriate care. Julie relays her story with gut-wrenching honesty and unexpected humor. She poignantly juxtaposes her battle to save her life in sharp contrast with the bureaucrats she encounters who see her struggle as just another boring day at the office. Her journal is told through the eyes of a fiercely independent and lovable woman who is forced to be the heroine of her own story in order to survive. Julie gives a voice to millions of Americans who struggle in silence.
