    I'm an Aussie so spiders hold no fears...well except for redbacks under the toilet seat. There are two huge tarantula types looking at me right now from the cornice across the room. We have an arrangement, they stay up near the ceiling eating any bugs seeking to take up residence and I leave them alone. Works well except for the time one lost its footing and fell into a freshly made cup of tea and quietly drowned without me noticing. Interesting!!!! :emot-yuk:

    I ate a bag of salt and vinegar potato chips a week! And I donít even like those!
    Sacrilege!!!! Salt and vinegar chips are the true staff of life. I'm reliably informed the manna from heaven which fed the Hebrews cooling their heels in the Sinai back in the day was really S&V crinkle cut chips. It's probably why they hung around there for so long.

    Ah. I've been meaning to have a genealogy tests myself. I can trace my dad's ancestors back to the early 1700s, but my mother's side is a mystery. The late 1800s must have been a bad time in central Europe because orphans are prevalent on both sides of her family tree.

    However, while they may accurately determine where your ancestors came from, the medical findings should be taken with a very large dollop of salt because we are more than just our DNA. In particular they don't/can't take into account how other factors, particular epigenetics, influences gene expression.

    I was on the verge of just stopping the lot and sticking with expensive vitamins and despair
    Around 2/3rds of those prescribed ADs stop taking them within the first month, mostly because they've been given little to no information on what to expect. A large part of the problem is their doctors are often no better informed than they are. Psych disorders get little attention in their training, literally just a couple of weeks here and there, possibly less than the time spent on exotic diseases most of them will never see in their entire career. Which is odd given how many of the problems their patients present with daily have a psych component. Psychiatric disorders are the leading cause of premature death because they often promote the cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and cancers which hasten the grim reapers appearance through alcohol and drug abuse, smoking, sedentary lifestyles , eating disorders, chronic high stress hormone levels, etc, etc.

    Well, Ian, I know I said I wouldn't do anything to stroke your ego...but if you can keep Mel on her meds, you're my hero

    As for the spiders...that's probably the least thing you have to worry about in Australia. Apparently, Australia has more ways to die than Florida LOL

    Well, maybe that's why I craved the salt and vinegar chips...I am Jewish, after all

    Ha, well I promise to stay on my meds for at least three months. How's that Vee? Ian, I'm Australian too. Battling the US healthcare system is what's going to send me to an early grave. I was in hospital for five nights recently: bill is $67,000 and counting. No surgery involved. Just a drip and vitals monitoring. Oh, and so far my insurance company is declining the claim

    Damn, Mel. That’s with or without insurance?

    That's with insurance denying the claim, so the total amount. I'm waiting for the hospital to get its shit together and provide them with the necessary paperwork. Pretty sure it doesn't default to me unless I signed a waiver (I signed a LOT of things, hopefully not a waiver)

    Yeah, that happened to a family member of mine because they took him gave him doctors not in our "network". We sued and won.

    Yikes!! I would have been straight back into the ER with a heart attack after receiving the bill.

    Had a few U.S. job offers of the years and knocked them back mainly because of the U.S. health 'system.' I think I've cost ours about $300k over the years and counting, but from memory the most it has ever cost me is $70 for a taxi fare home from hospital and now that I'm in Tassie I don't even have to worry about that. Apparently, if you arrived in an ambulance you go home the same way, all compliments of the taxpayer. I wonder if the flashing lights and siren are extra?

    There's so much pushback here against socialised medicine, it's nuts. Obamacare was a lousy, half-arsed compromise. The system needs to be rebuilt from the ground up, and I just can't see that happening

    Amen.

    It might happen here in California. But it would have to be something our state would have to do alone, like Covered California. Soon it will be mandatory that all Cali citizens have some form of health care here. It's a beginning.
