For those of you want to help, please pray for strength and energy for my mom, for Joy's cats to find good homes, and for her roommate Jerome in general. I'm okay, I knew her over 20 years, but we were never close.
Joy isn't here anymore, but if she was this is what I would say to her. It may apply to some of you, so listen up.
Just because you have no insurance doesn't mean you can never see a doctor, ESPECIALLY if you're low income. Don't avoid the doctor just because he'll ask you to make changes you don't want to make. And don't assume the pills that you have that are over two years old will still fix any problems that may come up.
