As noted last week, I had a wee health scare while at work. My bosses and coworkers have been beyond fabulous. Even more fabulous (my privilege) is having health insurance and sick leave. Lentils, I can’t even imagine going through this if I had to also worry about losing my job, not getting paid while I am out, and/or if I had to pay out of pocket for all of these doctor visits and tests.

It makes me sick to my stomach thinking about all the people who aren’t as lucky, all the additional people who are going to lose their insurance if the Republicans and Trump have their way. It’s disgraceful, shameful, and utterly cruel. My paltry political activism and donations don’t seem to be doing much to improve the situation. It’s very disheartening.
