Women who suffered abuse as children spend more on health care

“Middle-aged women who suffered physical or sexual abuse as children spend up to one-third more than average in health-care costs, according to a long-term study of more than 3,000 women. Even decades after the abuse ended, these women used health services at significantly higher rates than did non-abused women, the research found.”

“Women who had no history of abuse spent an average of $2,413 a year (in 2004 dollars) on health care costs. Women who were sexually abused only paid an average of $382 a year more, those who were physically abused spent $502 more, and women who suffered both types of abuse spent $790 a year in additional health care costs.”

    Used 225 for the deads, 135 for the cleans and 185 for the bench. Ran out of time at 29:20, finished through round 6.

    The deads and cleans were a bit light for me (I could do complete sets from the get go). I had to break up the benches every round.

    This one is brutal.

    Round 6?? Thats the mental “break-through” round. Its all downhill after that!

    By the way – fantastic results on Sunday’s FGB!! Darren: 360+ – wow. Jorgy – 388?! Impressive stuff. Way to go Rodil on your 1st FGB.

    Yah fun FGB yesterday. Jorgy is a baller. I was believing all the hype, but he def. stepped up yesterday.

    Me and rick were talking yesterday, and we are thinking of following the main site for a month or so. Any comments? Maybe compare stats and really start to take it to another level.

  • J Jones

    I have already been sticking to the mainpage for about 2 weeks now. I only really deviate when I have to.

    Craig – had to quit after rnd 6 due to time constraints. (i.e. we dicked around too much before getting started).

  • Rick

    tried to do linda this morning,my back said no. so i did fight gone bad a little later. scored a 358(PR). yea ive been doing the main site for about 3 weeks with little deviation, except now i gotta make up linda…

  • Darren

    If I am off tommorrow I am in for Linda at 4 pm at the shed. If anyone is interested come on down and join in on the death. I am going to try for RX but my fat butt weighs 220 so it will 165lbs. cleans will be hard for me.

  • Craig

    Its tough at our weight D.

    I put Stav, Cindy (CFSC) & Sarah through Linda. Nice work everyone. Cindy.. too light! You’re close to as RX.

    Stav, as RX at 195lbs – 39mins.

    By the way.. article: dangerous research. Causation vs. correlation. Its dangerous because health insurers are looking for ways to trim costs, especially by reducing exposure. Could you imagine getting dropped or having rates rise because you were an abused child? Some research may be better left undone.

    OMG, gonna love this WOD! With my weight, this will surely be a kick to the teeth but then again this is why I cross fit. 3 2 1 Goooo
