Yeah, something like that. That's why I do my best to hold my temper. #NOBOOM

I'm thinking I'll apply for AP to medical school. Yesterday I told the doc that 12 years ago my cardiologist told me to always request "contrast media" when getting a heart scan. I'm thick enough to need the blood vessels more visible on the scan.

OK, they ignored my notes yesterday and got a really lousy picture. Back today for a reshoot. This time with contrast. Could saved them the time and expense but they didn't listen. My source for that information just happened to be one of the top cardiologists in the country - and a full professor at UT Med. I can't take credit for the advice, I'm not a doctor. Still I'm pretty good at remembering the important stuff when it applies to ME.

The Spec-Ops Raccoons gave me bad intel. They reckoned you were a frequent visitor and not a TLN regular.

And the Russians had nothing to do with this.

At the VA today. Lab work (routine).

No change in Isabel's condition. They put her on a series of 4 shots (1 every 12 hours) to try to get her calcium down. Apparently, those shots are $3,000...each.

healthcare is a bigger racket than college.

Meds take millions to billions of dollars to test and develop and most fail during R&D

don't agree. college ripping off students for thousands, for paper books or downloads/software that arbitrarily changes each year.

drugs are expensive in the u.s. because as allen said, they cost billions to bring to market, and other countries have government monopoly on mandated pricing, so forced very low prices in those countries mean very high prices in the u.s. and if the u.s. goes the same route as other countries to lower costs, r&d will slow and maybe there won't be any option at all for a condition.

it's complicated to put it mildly... but corruption abounds with all the money and politics involved.

I touched a nerve there, I see.


everyone needs healthcare at some point.

you dont NEED college to live, or to make a lot of money.

but everyone at some point in their lives will need a doctor, medicine etc.
