I absolutely would be in a nursing home without Medicaid. I cannot physically do all things needed to live independently without the support provided by Medicaid. Similarly, I would not be able to keep a job without the same supports. I am disabled; that doesn't mean that I have given up on life and doesn't mean that I do not want to do everything I can to support myself and be a productive member of society. In relation to healthcare; I would not be able to pay to see doctors nor could I pay for some of the medications I have been on for over a decade. I would be riddled with pressure sores and infections. There is no way I (or if I had to rely on my family) could survive without these programs much less have any kind of quality of life.
