I attended the Womxn’s March in Seattle on January 21, the first day of my last period (not “last” as in it will never happen again but a woman can dream). I felt like it was necessary to mention this detail because every time I go to the doctor and they ask me when my last period was, I always lie. I went to the doctor today for my routine annual physical and before they pap smeared and blood sucked they asked me that question and I knew exactly what to say. I often take it for granted that I can go to a doctor and not worry about the bills that will get sent to me a few days later. Matt has health insurance through his job and though I’ve opted to be on his insurance, my workplace grants me similar benefits. But still, I’m young, healthy and I take it for granted. My access to healthcare is a privilege. It sounds completely backward to gamble on something like this and yet, it is still up for debate….
