Update: Sorry that I have been absent; I sleep mostly all day. My kidney function is holding at 12 percent. Last week, I spent 18 hours in the emergency room - sigh, more medical bills. I am tired of dealing with doctors who treat my skin color and not me. American doctors take an Hippocratic oath (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocratic_Oath)  but often display bigotry towards people of color. They do not offer the same treatment options that they offer their gringo patients. They do not display "due diligence". Which can kill me. My internist and kidney doctors are deeply angered, but I was not surprised by how I was treated in the emergency room. It is the same shit, different day. Think Trayvon Martin and you will get the picture. Maybe one day, Martin Luther King's dream that people of color, "will be judged by our character and not our skin color". Fact - a person of color can have great insurance but NOT get the same level of care that a gringo receives. This has been documented by The Journal of American Medical Association and other reputable medical  groups. 

Where does this leave me? Playing medical defensive AND carefully screening what is done AND what is not done. Unfortunately, when one is very ill, it is difficult to ascertain what is going on. Sigh.

My electric wheelchair is broken and I am having problems getting it fixed. I HATE insurance companies! Piss on 'em. It looks like I am going to have to find a part-time job and pay to have it fixed  myself.

I have been following the prospective presidential candidates and wish that politicians would spend more time telling us what METHODS they intend to implement to ACTUALLY fix the problems besetting us instead of looking for things to bash each other.

I will be stopping by to checkout  all my Google Plusser peeps, later tonight. Namaste.

What's new with me? 

1. Still suffering from depression - it is touch and go whether my attraction to the razor wins.

2. Kidneys are at 11%

3. My friend Jean Johnson is an incredible author. She suffered a health crisis that put her behind full-filling five publishing contracts and she needs help. See for yourself, [lease help if you can -  https://www.gofundme.com/JeanJAuthor
Ever since I was a young girl, my dream has always been to write full-time for my career. That dream is now on the verge of dying, leaving me with nothing. Due to circumstances beyond my personal control, I am unable to pay all of my bills, and will probably have to declare bankruptcy and give...

Hello Dear One, +Venetia Sjogren . I hope you are doing OK. You have likely received your book by now. I am looking forward to having a copy signed by the poet herself and I will love sharing such a special treasure here on Google Plus.
