Travel insurance

Travel insurance is high enough, without having an illness like dementia or cancer etc

But when you have an illness like this you get penalised with high costs, something that feels very wrong, it's as if you are penalised just for being ill, through no fault of your own

This also has a knock on effect,when your diagnosis changes as someone said the other day. 

The insurance company start asking why your diagnosis has changed, and I guess that the costs go up again,  because of all off the uncertainty, and that is terrible for those concerned.

At the end of the day, it's not as if we are going to go on a dangerous holiday, or do anything stupid.

So you are penalised for admitting that you have an illnes, and penalised if you don't admit to having the illness.

One holiday we paid just about the same for the holiday each as we did to cover my insurance, something that was staggering at the time.

So we have now got to the stage where we will not go away, because of the insurance costs.

There are some companies in this country who claim to offer people like us with cheaper insurance, but it never works when you look into it. 

I guess that this is another form of stigma towards those with this illness.
