If you’re an American, the combination of affordable AND high-quality health care just doesn’t exist in the United States.
Obamacare is better than nothing to be sure, but unless you have a cushy job with great health benefits, a lack of options can leave you shelling out money you don’t have if you have a chronic condition.
I found myself pinned between the U.S. pharmaceutical rock and medical hard place after getting laid off from a big, multi-national oil company geology job back in 2015.
To be honest, I’d been daydreaming about ways to eject myself from the fossil fuel extraction industry for a while before getting axed, but I never had the courage to leave my health care behind.

Instead, you’re probably looking at an entire floor of people sitting statically in front of their computers, typing away for hours a day. I bet some of them even forget to go use the bathroom!

It’s been 1 year now since I sold virtually all of my possessions back in Houston, save a trusty old chevy pickup…
