So much for trying to sleep in today, I've been up since 6:30 for NO good reason, LOL!!!
Unfortunately, my brother/cousin STILL doesn't know what going on with him and is still dealing with rectal bleeding. Honestly, I never really gave much thought to what would happen if I ever needed medical care and couldn't get it. What I do know is that my opinion of the health care bill hasn't changed because of his situation, and my opinion is that is that I'm NOT in favor of it in it's current form. What I am in favor is protection for Physicians from morbidly obese patients being able to sue their doctors when their surgeries through 10 feet of adipose tissue goes wrong. I'm in favor of insurance companies doing away with those silly ass preexisting condition clauses and a tight rope being placed on medical malpractice suits. But that would require the President go ofter "his own" and we all know he isn't going to do that to any significant degree. Free health care for chain smokers and most of the overweight folks a saw eating at Golden Coral Friday night is NOT what I support. I say if you want to live an unhealthy lifestyle,then YOU should have to "pay" for it. It's the reason I didn't have 100% sympathy for my Dad when he was terminally ill, yet STILL chain smoking and why I feel the same about my brother. Sometimes you pay with your life for the choices you make.
Now on to a subject which is near and dear to most people's heart, their hair. Okay, in the Black community, hair can be a touchy subject as comedically illustrated by Chris Rock in his movie "Good Hair". But I got a new take on this hair issue when I went to the my stylist in February and left with about 1/5 of my hair in the sink! Turns out I got a bad perm and THIS is a Black woman's worst nightmare!!! So now I'm left wearing heavy conditioner in my hair everyday, all day for at least 6 months until my hair in the right rear quadrant of my head grows back, LOL!! Oh well, I'm just glad my hair follicles weren't permanently damaged to the point where my hair couldn't grow back. In that case, someone would be pass due for an old fashioned ass whippin!!
