Health Insurance – so thankful I have it.
If you have ever not had it and really needed it, you know what I am talking about.
I get frustrated with people making up stories about “Obamacare” and I assume that the people employing these scare tactics have never been without health insurance, OR they have always been pretty healthy and never really *needed* to use it.
I also get frustrated with people who blame people for being sick – claiming if people would just take care of themselves they wouldn’t need health insurance.
Well, I really need my health insurance and I take care of myself pretty well.
So this was me yesterday:

Yesterday I had (another) endoscopy, or an EGD, as my doctor referred to it. (She likes to use fancy names for things.) If you are *really* keeping up with my life, you know I had this procedure done a few weeks ago, too. Well, after the first procedure she discovered I had an esophageal stricture which was causing the problems I was having (basically, my food was getting stuck in my esophagus so I could only eat soup). During the first procedure, she dilated my esophagus, but because she could only dilate it a few millimeters at a time I needed a follow-up procedure to give me a few more millimeters to work with.
