I am sad and embarrassed for humanity if they think because you have medicaid you can't hold a job, or whatever other assumptions are made. In my state, DH and I were both working full time jobs and had had been since we were early teens, and still qualified for Medicaid. We weren't offered insurance at our small mom and pop style retail store. There are I believe 8 employees counting the owner. I have had to call around and use the directory to see who was taking new Medicaid patients, but I have never ever once felt I was being pushed in or out of treatment, I have been able to get regular dental care, and normal vision care (all be it, there were only a few frames to choose from, but I need to see, not make a fashion statement) Only while pregnant, DH is never covered, and I am only covered for the pregnancy. Luckily the kiddos are covered :)
I know people process MJ differently, but 10 weeks (30w-40w) is lots of time to clean things out. I wasn't baked my entire pregnancy. I had a few puffs almost every evening (when my M/S is at it's worst) I'd didn't test myself during pregnancy, but in my teens, I was clean within a month and I was smoking waaay more then that.
I really think my M/S is killing me now more than with DS because I don't smoke anymore (when would I find time for such luxuries with a needy toddler? )
