Darlin', as Jespah mentioned in her post, haven't you yet heard of the Affordable Care Act? Maybe you've heard of it as Obamacare?
That means that No One has to be without insurance. If a person is no longer covered by their parents insurance, they get their own through the Health Care Market Place at www.HealthCare.gov
That's the link, click on it.
Basically, if a person is below a certain income level, they go on Medicaid. If they make above a certain amount, they pay according to how much they make through an insurance plan they get through Healthcare.gov
Or, if your place of employment offers insurance, you get it through them.
In addition, it is possible for an adult child to stay on their parents insurance until they are 26 years old (usually, some plans may be different).
In other words, there is no reason for boyfriend not to have health insurance. Got that?
I'm giving you this information for yourself too, as you are 18, and an adult. You have to look out for your own insurance needs as well.
I'm not going to give any opinion as to your relationship with him, if you truely enjoy being with him etc.
I am however leaning towards what others have said that he's quite immature, or at least very uninterested in managing his own life. I mean, why would he? He's got Momma to tell him he could die at any moment of something he doesn't even know is true or not, and pretty much leading him around by the nose as far as everything else in his life.
Really kaekae, how can a person go around saying "I could die at any moment, I could die on the operationg room table if they try to fix it....But I don't really even know what's wrong....That's Momma's job, even if I am a 24 year old man."
You've heard the expression "tied to his mothers aprons strings" right? If you haven't, google it.
All of this has nothing to do with your shyness.
It has to do with a controlling, manipulative woman who can't let go on sonny boy, tell's him he could die if he doesn't stay near her, and bad mouths any girl who gets close to him.
Answer me this kaekae...If it's true he's got a life threatening condition, where he could die at any moment, what mother would let her son go without insurance? She knows about healthcare.gov, believe me.
