no health insurance stopped me from starting my own company

I Decided to start my own company after years of working for local hospitals and schools as a therapist. I have been diagnosed with celiac disease, and as a result was uninsurable, at least with the four insurance companies I talked to. This stopped any plans I had of starting my own company, and forced me to continue working for other people. My American dream came to a dead end because of a pre-existing condition! If there had been moderately affordable guaranteed health insurance I would be in a completely different place financially and professionally.
