COBRA Subsidy

Hey guys, It's been a while. David has been on STD (employer supplied) for a few months and we are now looking at either paying COBRA or me going fulltime at work and getting health insurance.

My p...

David's obstruction came f...

Re: Stephen

Oh Cindy, I have felt so utterly close to you as Stephen and my husband were on similar paths a couple of weeks ago. When their paths diverged, I no longer felt I could offer you anything but solace as you were entering unknown territory to me. Your postings have been so honest and I thank you for m...
