“Everybody has a plan until they get hit.”
Full time nomads talk a lot about emergency plans for our live-in vehicles. Do we have a repair or replacement fund for it? Where do we live if our van is in the shop? What if we wreck it?
We don’t talk as much about plans for health emergencies. As my mentor Bob Wells says, it’s one of the things we’re in denial about. Maybe because it’s a scarier topic. Maybe if we don’t talk about it it won’t happen.
Some of us are already dealing with chronic health problems. Many of us are of the age bodies start to break down.
So, what’s the plan?
My plan was to not worry about bad health until I had to. Well, now I need to. I have stage four throat cancer. But luckily (considering the circumstances) a plan came together. I have a place to stay, people to help me. Friends, family, medical professionals and Medicare are making it happen.
But what about you? Will whatever plan you have survive being hit, or will you end up on the canvas? Share your thoughts.
