I'll second that. I'm also a single woman in her 50s who has had some health problems. But I don't have kids and I'm lucky enough to work in a field where I can get reasonable group health coverage. A few years back I went through a couple of major surgeries and spent 9 months in a wheelchair or on crutches over a 2-year period. With my boss's support I was able to "phone in" my job during most of my recovery and my parents were willing to help with care while I recovered. Otherwise I would have been bankrupt.

You're just annoyed with our government? I'm furious. And not just over flag burning.
