different points of view

good Morning- I am feeling rushed - this summer is going by so fast. I am busy with all sorts of annual medical appointments - routine stuff but have not done in a while. My DH on the other hand is feeling it is just dragging. I was watching DH yesterday - he looked so drained. We had watched a program which had an author about adult male health - white men over 50. 80% of the suicides which do not include Military - are white men over 50. It was about health for people in the states where the governors have chosen to not go for Medicaid expansion or making it hard for people to get medical. Georgia is closing hospitals in rural areas- for example. To me it was so sad. When you travel for years, like I do. So many countries do not allow our seniors to have to struggle for medical. These seniors do not have to worry. They get their meds or medical equipment. As I age, I see that we need to take care of our seniors better. We need to take better care of people in need. Good hard working people who may have had a set back or two - need medical and mental care as one ages should be a right in this wonderful country of ours - not a privilege. Have a good day! I will- grand baby coming!!
