Do you ever accidentally over hear your parents talking about how much medical bills are and immediately feel guilty about wanting to go see a therapist, cause you're afraid you're gonna make your parents broke?
Hey There Anon Friend, I’m so sorry you are feeling down.
Know what, if your parents didn’t love you and care for you, they wouldn’t go out of their way to help you. I would drive myself to bankruptcy and beyond for my son. You need to speak with your parents and let them know you heard. Here’s the thing about eavesdropping though, you may have heard only a real snippet of the conversation. The entire conversation may have been much different and with a different outcome. They may have come up with a plan to pay the bills or they were talking about the real cost of the medical verses what the insurance pays and what their out of pocket expense is.
Example: My son heard me talking about his last surgery. The total cost was over (well over) $100,000, the anesthesiologist had billed me for $35,000. The conversation with friends went on quite a while but he only heard about the cost of the surgery and what he thought I owed. What we spoke about later was what the real cost to me was for us. My total out of pocket was $500.
Talk with your parents about the situation. Don’t let it fester and cause you additional harm or stress.
Hope that helps,
Have a peaceful day/night
