It may not be dominating the news these days, but rest assured: Obamacare still sucks as much as ever.

Here’s today’s reminder, courtesy of tweeter Brittany Cover:

My Obamacare nightmare has literally left me in tears. I never knew I could have this miserable of an experience trying to get healthcare.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

I started my process on JUNE 17th. Still don't have insurance officially, still can't get the prescriptions I need to walk without pain.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

I can't imagine what it's like for someone with a life-threatening condition. Mine is just chronic pain.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

No one has been any help. Insurance company doesn't communicate with exchange, exchange has messed everything up.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

And everyone treats you like you're some kind of idiot for not understanding the intricacies of the field. Just an utter nightmare.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

It's been three months. I am literally hoarding what's left of my steroids and deciding which days I can endure the pain.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

All because I have no idea when the next time I can get meds is going to be. I have been in tears begging for answers. No one has any.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

I knew in my gut on principle that this wasn't the answer for the issues in the healthcare market. Living it out has been hell.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

I have a folder and have been compiling all the different answers that I have been given trying to navigate this.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

I can't imagine how someone who isn't type-A like I am handles this nightmare.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

No sympathy, no kindness when I say I have been trying to navigate this since June. Just "oh". OH? Seriously? That's it?

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Each time I try and figure this stuff out I get a different answer, and I am what feels farther and farther away from getting coverage.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Do none of these people ever talk to each other? No one ever has the same answer to the same question or knows how their system works.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

"Oh the address must be wrong." Nope, you sent my hubby his stuff, where the heck is mine?

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Irony that I am the one who signed my husband up and he (without any preexisting conditions) has his card and coverage in tact, yet I don't.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

@bccover Sorry you are going through this, what a nightmare

— Phelony Jones (@phelony_jones) September 19, 2014

@phelony_jones it's just so annoying at this point. I just want my damn pills! LOL.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

It's inexcusable that I select a plan on June 17th, 2014 and I still don't have coverage on Sept 19th, 2014.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

And no one ever calls me back or follows up. I have to call about once a week to urge them to help me.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Thankfully I work from home and can sit on the phone for a few hours once a week while these people start the process all over again.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Most people can't sit on the phone for this long weekly trying to sort this all out.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

"Can I order an insurance card from you then so I can get my scripts?" "We sent them on the 16th" "But my husband got his on the 13th"

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

"Well it's in the mail, we sent it on the 16th" "I hear you, but can you understand after all I've been through why I wouldn't trust that?"

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

"My computer says we sent it on the 16th, ma'm." *smacks phone on the counter*

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

All she had to do was let me order it and call it a day. Also, I knew about some basic healthcare stuff more than she did.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

That was awfully terrifying. Healthcare via a call center is basically the worst idea anyone could ever come up with.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

So now I get to wait another week for my insurance card to not get here, before calling again next week and doing this dance all over again.

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

Godspeed, Brittany.

So in short, Obamacare blows. But you most likely already knew that. Happy thought: it's the weekend!

— Brittany Cover (@bccover) September 19, 2014

So there’s that …
