<<Some years later, I was a civilian. She ran out of the pain pills and went to a civilian MD. He said, "Either you are pregnant, or you have a tumor the size of a grapefruit." They removed the tumor, and her problem went away (period and all). I feel the military wasn't set up tp worry about a female civilian with period issues. Grit your teeth. Suck it up.

What does this say about government health care? Is it good for people to have choices and alternatives?

If government political priorities in health care aren't sensitive to your issues, perhaps it's because prioroties are going to the politically sensitive health issues ---- whatever they might be that day --- be it AIDS breast cancer or whatever?

Isn't that the way political systems work?
