>> Congrats on seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! My goal is to FIRE at 50. We'll see if I make it or not. <<#29I'm thinking the last couple of weeks have set me back a couple of years, but we'll see.I know the feeling. I'm trying to ignore the past 2 weeks myself. I just continue to plan on an expected 11% return average in my FIRE spreadsheet and compare the results monthly. I do my big analysis each year on my birthday (real exiting, I know) to check my progress. A lot of it also depends on the health care situation in the next decade. That will likely have more of an impact on when I can FIRE than all the eggs the stock market is laying now.#29 For sure!Regardless of what continues to happen in health care and the political bickering that goes on, the best thing each and every one of us can do individually is to focus on the things we can control.The 2 things that come to mind for me are:- do everything you can to improve your health by eating properly, proper rest, clean water, structure your life to be low stress etc..- build up your own HSA (whether you qualify for tax savings or not) to be used when necessary. I personally liked intercst's plan to invest that HSA amount into healthcare stocks. That way, they tend to keep up with healthcare inflation.decath
