Dizzy Spells And Spinning Rooms
One of the greatest fears of being an independent contractor is the fear of coming down with an unforeseen injury or illness. With my shit agency "health" plan offering a paltry $7,500 annual maximum benefit allotment ($1,500 annual limit for the surgeon/$250 limit for the anesthesiologist/and $250 daily limit for hospital room and board) getting sick is impossible. I, like many of those around me, undoubtedly cloak themselves under a "it won't happen to me" umbrella of denial. As luck would have it, last weekend the wind came up and tore off my umbrella.
