    Mine is in student loans as well. Someday they'll be gone.

    I'm hoping to be rid of them within the next 5 years.

    You feel no obligation to pay it back?

    Nope.
    I think medical care is a right, and that it should be free.

    Well, it's not a right and it's not free. So....

    While I agree that it should be made into a right in this society, until it is, we should make all attempts to follow the current laws.

    Other than that, i don't think I have any debt.
    I'm sorry for you. I know how that feels with medical bills.
    I couldn't sleep and I hated answering the phone. It was affecting my life. I finally faced the problem and talked to them. I agreed to pay like $25 to $30 a month to the different drs and hospitals and they were very nice about it. When my husband died I continued the payments but was eventually contacted about the one HUGE bill I owed and they said they were going to write the whole thing off. They even sent me flowers!
    So now I've got the rest down to under a thousand.
    So, all I have to worry about is waiting on my free Obamacare so I can be insured. LOL

    It's okay.
    I only answer because my kids no longer live at home, and so when somebody calls from a number I don't recognize, I get scared something's happened to them and I have to answer (hooray for anxiety disorder ).
    If it weren't for that, I'd simply never answer.
    As soon as I find out it's bill collectors, I hang up.
    It's not like those people calling really care if i ever pay my hospital bills.
    They barely speak English. I think the collection agencies outsource to India or something.
    They're just doing their job, reading a script off a piece of paper.
    So I try not to be mean to them.

    It is a right, and it's free everywhere else in the industrialized world except the US.
    It's not my fault my lame-ass country is behind the times, human rights-wise.
    That doesn't mean I have to be. I'm free to just ignore them.

    But it's not free everywhere else.
    You still have to pay taxes for it, in other countries.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
