try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

And they certainly should be concentrating on preventative actions like the cardiology tests.

One of the reasons my mother has the health problems she does is because she wasn't diagnosed until after she became symptomatic, which by that time coronary artery disease is often pretty well established. I'm trying to get preventative care so that kind of thing won't happen to me. It doesn't seem too much to ask from a wealthy corporation, y'know?

they preferred to wait till more expensive and extensive drugs were needed, when about $7 worth of amoxicillin could have saved the day.

Yeah. It's like they're biting off their own foot, or something.

Yeah, the story like your mom's is just what I was thinking of. I am sorry you're having to deal with this.

In my mom's case it was more that she was unaware of any problems and didn't ping to the family history thing (this was back before a lot was done with heredity and stuff). In my case, it's entirely preventable, and if anything does happen it'll be because of not being able to get the treatment I need to prevent it. Unfortunately, the end product could be the same.

I really think I'm pretty healthy, but y'know? I'd really like to stay that way.
