Do you have access to affordable or free health insurance, with drug coverage? This is one of the single largest expenses for many retired folks.

Hi ResNullius. Unfortunately, no. This is my biggest worry. Fortunately, my meds aren't very expensive at present. They've tried to put me on statins and stuff, but I never tolerated them, so I just don't worry about the lipid levels anymore. :o)

Given your insurance situation, you probably would benefit from living in a state that mandates caps on premiums for folks who otherwise might not be able to afford individual coverage. There are many states that require this type of coverage. Some state even subsidize it.
