I was coming along just fine, coming out of a deep depression of over 40 years, had that malignant kidney removed, think they got it all, even though it was a grade 3 and eating the fat in my belly! Am on oxygen at night and some during the day time, is improving.
Here is my dilema, not sure if I am depressed again, or just trying to make sense out of the government's intervention into our health care. Don't hate me, but we are on Medicare and Blue Cross and Blue Shield and were getting by, my psych meds were choking us. but—
Now, after these past few months of the govt bickering over the aged don't really need nor should expect, much health care, where do you draw the line?! I had planned on following up like my Dr recommended, after that malignant kidney was removed, turned down that experimental program, but had planned on doing the six month cat scan and blood work—-I hadn't had a breast exam or pap smear for several years, so thought I would "catch up" my medical care! Now I feel unsure of whether I should do ANYTHING MORE! PERIOD!!
What if they do find more cancer, what can they do, there is my age of 77 years, but until lately I thought I could still contribute something to humanity. Now I wonder, am I robbing the young of their, more needed, health care??! I don't want to get into their way, but am I to be written off NOW??!!
Input please——just your own gut reaction——like pulling the plug on someone who is still breathing——-PR
