I’m not rich enough to be sick.

Back to the vertigo saga. Before I can actually get in to see the Neurologist (you know, the one with the next opening two and a half months away) my company gets bought out, again, and we have a change of insurance, again, on December 1st. My appointment was on Nov 30th and of course the Neurologist isn’t on the new insurance so I canceled and decide to look for a Neurologist on the new plan.
Then Bam! I get laid off and become one of the uninsured, milling about on the fringes of polite society. I’m thinking paying out of pocket for an MRI and other diagnostic tests is something that would require a third mortgage. My next plan is to turn to alternative medicine and on-line research. So far, I’ve ruled out Kuru, which can cause vertigo but is only acquired by living in New Guinea and eating dead relatives.
