The scariest thing I find about being unemployed for 2-1/2 years is not having insurance (I am 59 years old). I hurt my back a couple of months ago and I went to the emergency room of the local hospital. I told them I didn't have insurance or any money, but they took me anyway and gave me the paperwork to get financial assistance. I sent it in and I received a reply that I wouldn't have to pay anything. Such a relief. Our county is opening a Senior Services Center this month for people aged 55 to 64 for medical purposes. I can't wait.
