  •  Hey, why not. (9+ / 0-)

    I deal with that symptom about every week, and I can't do anything about it unless I find a "free urinary doctor office visit!" coupon somewhere.

    I hate that we live in the richest nation on earth and have the worst health care system of any industrialized country.  It's, quite literally, killing me.

      looked at.  Some doctors will charge you less if they know you are uninsured, and they typically let you pay it off in payments. Going in debt to get health care sucks, but it beats the alternative. Please get it looked at!!!!

        But it takes every dollar I can scrape up for the one doctor appointment a month I already have to go to.

        It's just a horrific mess, not having health insurance or access to health care.

        Why I and my wife worked so hard for Obama.

        Then turns out that since we live in Texas there's no Medicare expansion for us.

        But somehow the Administration has the power to fine us if we don't buy insurance.

        Funny how that works.  Not enough power to help us, but plenty to punish us.

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.
