"stephanie woodall" Discussed on The Cost of Care

"Ten thousand dollars. You know what's coming next. The bills didn't stop there managing out just on a day to day. Basis is easily five hundred dollars every month. And that's on a good month. A requires multiple. Doctors appointments medication. Weekly therapy to cope with having a chronic illness and every time they want to try something new to help me with my endo and even though i'm desperate to escape the pain in the back of my head is always that question of well. Okay how much is this going to cost me. Which was the very same question. Our next caller was asking yourself a couple of years ago. My name is aurora. Hey i am twenty. Six years old. I am currently calling from north wales in the uk. But i am originally from illinois in twenty nineteen. I went from being very healthy. Young person. to having some pretty severe abdominal pains and it turns out i had extremely advanced untreated crohn's disease it's an autoimmune disorder which means your immune system attacks it just like it would attack any sort of bacteria or virus or anything it sees a part of your body as a foreign invader Which is bad and it can cause really really severe damage. What did the severe damage look like for aurora a ruptured small intestine the required an emergency surgery and bidding good riddance to nearly twelve inches of that intestine. I can sit up on my own. Can walk for a long time. it was just. It was a lot and then to find out that it's a lifelong chronic. Illness was another blow. Krones required a complete one eighty for auroras diet and lifestyle. No more of vegetables taking it easy on the cheese and much more exercise. Unless of course or chronic fatigue kicked in which is another side effect of krones. On top of that you guessed it. The bills started piling up a couple of months post op. It'd be like a couple hundred dollars here and then it'd be like two thousand dollars and then a couple of hundred again. When the last biggest bill came in it was like thirty thousand dollars. It was absolutely shocking. Plus it took aurora six months of trial and error for her to get her hands on the medication that was best suited for her type of krones and remember when you're living with a chronic disease like crohn's every day of dot six months feels like a lifetime. My doctor is really upfront with me. She's like honestly. These probably are to help you that much but you have to try and fail them before. The insurance company will pay for the next course of treatment. She's like the next one. I think is really going to help you. And it did actually so the next one i ended up on and i'm still on is humira and that's the expensive one so when aurora's husband got a job offer back home in the uk. She was pleasantly surprised by her new costs of care before becoming eligible for the uk sponsored health. Insurance the nhs. A roy had to purchase six injections worth of humira pins out of pocket which cost her roughly seventeen hundred bucks. Compare this to the price of the us where one injection will run you. A five thousand dollars with insurance and over seven thousand dollars without and now that i'm on the nhs. Mike is completely free. I can go to the doctor here and not worry at all about whether or not this is going to massively affect my finances being without good health insurance in the. Us sounds like an absolute nightmare. I mean if i personally was still in the us. And i had either not great or no health insurance. I honestly do not know how i would keep myself alive. I mean i'm on so many medications my state test to be monitored so often and when when a blood test can be six hundred dollars. That's that's rent that that could be your rent for an entire month. How do you choose between making sure. Your body isn't rejecting medication or paying rent and auroras nightmare was our next listeners. Reality after moving to new york with dreams of making it in the acting biz joshua deadly small intestine rerouted and back virginia. I i'm joshua dudley. I'm forty five. I'm calling from my parents house. I've lived for the past six years. Ever since i declared bankruptcy and had to move home because of complications from crohn's disease i was having diarrhea and stomach pain for nearly ten years. But i didn't have insurance and pretty much just ignored it and felt like a power through it so in two thousand ten had an emergency surgery with the bill that costs almost two hundred thousand dollars in an six months. Later i was back in virginia And they did a the elliot's me reversal procedure also called a takedown and that surgery costs fifty thousand dollars and eventually it came down to the point that only had enough money to either declare bankruptcy or pay my rent so i had to not pay my rent for three months to save up enough money to pay the cost of bankruptcy at front. Luckily joshua was able to get all of medical bills threaten off but the price he pave was bankruptcy and hours and hours of patient advocacy for the prices. We pay and the care we receive. We shouldn't have to spend hours googling or making phone calls in search of answers about what sort of care is available where what documentation might be needed to access that care how much that cares going to cost and whether or not that cost is even going to be covered by insurance and now. I'm sure you're thinking okay. Okay david we get it. The system categorically sucks but for now. These are the cards we've been dealt and until big. Systemic change comes to pass which let's be honest happens at a snail's pace. We have to learn how to play that game which is why next week. We're talking to patient. Advocates whose job is helping people find their way through the healthcare maze. It's the last episode of the season and we promised to leave you with concrete steps for becoming a better healthcare consumer. You don't always have to do what is being suggested. You have breen.

"Let's help them finish it out now for the episode match. Give you a content warning because this entire episode is about suicide the entire thing. So if you're not in a place where you can hear about that right now please go listen to some uplifting episodes of the show the one about magic from a few weeks ago or maybe the interview with derek black when he renounced white nationalism. Just for example. If you're on the fence about listening to an entire episode about suicide i can also tell you this stephanie. Woodall's friend of the pot. And i also laugh a lot during this conversation. Believe it or not we laugh a lot to paraphrase her. Take on that just because you're talking about something tragic. It doesn't mean you lose your worldview and you know world views include a sense of humor in speaking a world views. I realized the other day. I've been neglecting to regularly point out that are season or addition of with friends. Like these. these days also has a point of view every episode. Thus far has tangled in some way with the idea of good intentions. Usually good intentions gone wrong. In some way this episode is specifically about how we need to rethink the ways. We approach suicide prevention. That framing it as a problem that affects the mentally. Ill is all wrong and leads to bad prevention tactics instead. We have to think about suicide as something we prevent on a public health basis. The way we think about smoking were gun violence. We need suicide prevention for those immediately in crisis for sure we also need to create a world where far fewer people are in crisis. But i shouldn't give the whole episode away so if you're ready for an episode entirely about suicide one is coming. Right up with stephanie. Woodall's to talk about her podcast last day and how her whole season is about suicide laugh..

"To my house and listen to it while my husband cooks dinner nephew What are we having tonight that trip to Rehab that Harris was just talking to Pete Holmes about that wasn't for pills that was for heroin Harris had upgraded his addiction that Pete Holmes podcast? He already relapsed when that came out like I was listening listening to that thing and I was listening to him. Tell his sobriety story and I was like I'm going to kill him. Look I'm going to kill him. I was so mad at him because he was like when I remember I was like can you how are you. How are you okay with the fact that you've put this out in the world and you've relapsed lapsed like he said some bogus crazy stuff he was like yeah but like so and so many people on twitter like re tweeted to like it's helping people? It's like I fucking hate you. I can't believe you but I remember being really angry and then when he came home December before he died he had relapsed and he was detoxing. God and it was like I don't know if you've seen the basketball diaries aries but absolutely I grew up in the nineties. It was way worse than that was horrible. We for the people who haven't seen basketball players who should watch is shaking sweating vomiting. too cold couldn't regulate his body temperature Berkshire couldn't sit up couldn't eat anything couldn't drink anything couldn't talk totally ravaged totally sick sicker than I've ever ever ever seen anybody in my entire life and at that point I was like oh he sack back like and I love him and I'm just going to sit here and all and I'm eleven through it because and he's been a shithead and he's been ruining my life. You know like he's been messing up my life and not being Thanksgiving and not doing this and not doing this the way I want him to do it but like he's sick like I get it now and then I was like okay I just I have to help him like I can't make this about me and my anger after detoxing in Houston Extend Harris went back to La and back to Rehab and then into a sober living facility where he stayed until February Paris had been in a sober living home and checked himself out a few days early he only wanted to stay a month in Rehab and I begged him to stay another other month because I knew what his history was that was on Tuesday night on Wednesday he the tank he supposedly did a great great stand upset at a club. We heard a cinnamon email at midnight about how proud I was of him and he was getting ready to move to Manhattan to film master of none he had gotten a big part in that show is eases best friend and he was this very excited he wanted to he wanted to be an actor in the worst way and he was getting ready to to cross that threshold was a big deal for hairs and and he wrote me back that night and said I feel so fortunate. I feel so good and I I love you and found a great place to live in Manhattan that email from Harris Cumin the late hours I February Eighteenth Twenty fifteen the next stay with Stephanie's thirty four th birthday I remember it was a beautiful day. my mom's ends up being person getting cleaned up trying to be salad with that so it was a beautiful day. I'm GonNa let her get her Kleenex. Sorry sorry sorry okay go ahead. This is my mom like unwrapping candies in theater. I like doing it for fucking two minutes. Sorry do it fast like the fact that you're unwrapping it slowly. We all hear that okay so those beautiful day on February nineteen gene and I rem- I remember that because I feel like tragedy always strikes on beautiful days I truly do I am alarmed by beautiful. I was actually I had plans to go to see fifty shades of grey with my girlfriends uh-huh which I will tell you I cannot even go see the second one because it brings back so charbel memories for me. I'm sure it's also 'cause it's probably just a terrible movie. We actually loved that movie. I Guy Anyway we had taken. Irs to her speech therapy and she had she aced her little speech therapy dust and for a baby who was born with hearing loss us that was pretty miraculous occasion and so Mike and I my husband we were just glowing and I hyper remember I was changing her diaper and I got an. La Phone number come up on my phone and I pressed ignore because I was dealing with the diaper her and then we went we went to the movie in the afternoon and I remember getting a a an. La Phone number on my phone and I texted did Harris and I said I got a strange number. Are you okay and it rang again and I swear God. I just knew I was like Oh my God this is happening like God and I picked up the phone and I was just like hello and the woman said is the Stephanie Woodall's. I said yes she said Harris what was your brother. I was like Oh my God. That's like wait. Wait wait and I just remember I grabbed. IRS and I open the door to the bathroom and screamed for Mike to come in before she told me even I just knew and he came in and grabbed her. She was screaming and she told me and I I still to this. Day can't remember if she said he died or he's dead or I don't remember how she said that sentence and I just fell on the floor also in a fetal position the grief grief position I I was like pounding my fist on on the floor. It was it was I mean it was just the most horrific moment and then in the midst of that horrific moment. I realized I was going to have to tell my parents parents and I was like that's going to be the most terrific moment like that's going to be even even worse than this and I don't know somehow drove over there. I I don't know how and when I was pulling up in the driveway. My Dad was walking up from work and we sat on the bench outside of the building and I just remember like looking at him and thinking linking. We're like looking at each other across the line and once I tell him I'm going to destroy them and I just I mean I just he is a man of very few words so I just remember a little like a tear falling on his cheek and and I was just like really consumed with how my mom was aware she says or how she was I mean and then she was like texting me pictures of dinner at dinner this Sushi place had the most beautiful presentation Shen and I took a picture of it and I sent it to Stephanie wanted her to see this beautiful plate of Sushi. I was like Doc oh man. I hope she's really enjoying this because this is a this is a little last time she's ever going to be able to have good so. She texted me back and said are you. Are you going to go home or you're gonNA go play cards. You know what's going on and on my way home in the car I get a text from a girlfriend is no longer from my girlfriend. I might add who said what has he done. What is harassed done and that was the text and I doubt my first thought was he was in the hospital? I never ever thought he was dead because you don't you just hope while all this was happening something else was unfolding in Los Angeles it turns out Harris's death wasn't just a family tragedy it was news on gossip TV the kind of TV that Maureen former friend had seen TV that told family friends and total strangers about Harris's death breath before his own mother knew that her only son was dead. Honey and Hollywood are in mourning the comedy World Moore's a tragic young loss today many in Hollywood's comedy world or mourning the loss of one of their own Harris whittles heiress whittle Harris whittles dead at just thirty years old possible drug overdose is suspected as police discovered drug paraphernalia in whittle's home and so his business manager it was calling me and like warning me about the shit show that was about to ensue and I am not trying to like fuck this up for you any more than it already is but but you you have to tell your mom like it's like it's going to be out there and then I remember shortly after she called me and she was like in the pitch that was not really high pitch and she was like what's going on. What's going on what's going on and I said where are you and she said I'm in the parking garage and I said stay where you are do not move move and I ran down to the elevators and as I was going down she was coming up and I came home and I my girlfriends you know held me up because I was scared and they walked me into my apartment and and my husband looked at me and said he did what you always thought he was Kinda? Do I got all the way down there and she wasn't there and I ran back up and at that point my dad had told her so. What did you walk into them them on the floor and I remember falling on the floor and a fatal position and just screaming screaming? I don't know how to do this. God don't make me do this please. That's all I can remember just remember the three of us sitting on the couch and just total salads for the rest of the night in just we were just shocked. We just totally shocked the night moved on and into the next day the news of Harris's. His death was bouncing around the Internet everywhere that his family turned other people were remembering Harris. I mean there was is just every blog news piece pictures of him.

Look picketing with signs of his face and part of I mean I was sort of like he would love this. In this sort of great when we went to allied to pack up his house the night before we started to pack up for him they had a huge tribute for him at a comedy club and you see all of his people were there.
