Recently, I was called by the local pharmacist to change an insulin prescription to something more affordable for a patient. The pharmacist and I went through the types of available insulin and the cheapest insulin was $300 a month!! Let me repeat…The CHEAPEST was $300 a month. THE CHEAPEST!!! I almost dropped the phone. I couldn’t believe it. How can people afford to pay for medicines??

The question I force myself to ask is why don’t more people do something, ANYTHING, to prevent becoming chronically ill with a preventable disease?
If it costs that much to be sick… why BE sick?? I would think this country would be obsessed with a healthy lifestyle just to save money… if for no other reason.
And yet it’s almost the opposite.
It leaves me scratching my head.
Anyway… I’m on my way to the gym to work out (what little I can do)

It’s that time of year …again

It seems as if we are on schedule, Halloween is over and we are approaching the “holiday season” and bend over here it comes again, massive commercialism and the “Giving season” approaches. It’s like we are on auto-pilot and cruise control all at the same time. We talk about being grateful and having gratitude attitudes but what do you thinks is going to happen after about two hours at the Thanksgiving table with all the family getting together to say the stuff they wanted to say since the last Thanksgiving dinner. In the midst of the drama who has a chance to even think about being grateful. Some of us are grateful, that we only have to go through this once a year.

And don’t go to sleep after Thanksgiving, because the day after we all rush to the malls to get good deals and catch the flu, being in such crowded quarters with low ventilation. I think we should have this kind of spirit all year long, why wait until the last weeks of the year to really give. I get so frustrated with it all. It’s so programmed, just like the ubiquitous diets at the first of the year. Just eat less and get off your ___ and exercise already!!! I promise if you can hang in there for more than the two days before you usually quit, you’ll lose weight.

I know I’m not supposed to be so honest but at some point I get tired of telling people what they want to hear and I’d just like to tell them the truth. Oh, but I must be so careful because it’s not lost on me that most of us, can’t handle the truth. (Thanks, Jack)

Well that’s the truth as I see it today. Once I get some sleep and some good loving maybe tomorrow I’ll see things differently.
