You may not know this, but my beloved wife [livejournal.com profile] riverheart contributes to Daily Kos as Kitsap River.

Her most recent diary, How long can I afford to live?, was selected as one of eleven (out of several hundred posted today) considered sufficiently noteworthy to be recognized on the front page.

I am very proud of her— both for her bravery in facing a devastating illness, and her forthrightness in speaking out about the politics of healthcare in America.

I was going to add a comment, but there's a 24-hour waiting period for new accounts.

The only reason I can survive longer than a month is that I've already lost almost everything - all savings went when I was first unable to work, then the apartment; only through the kindness and heroic efforts of friends was I able to keep my books and my piano in storage, for the 4 years I was homeless, and then in the SRO. I'm still rather surprised that I survived, but any hope I had of things improving is gone, and I acquired a couple of additional chronic conditions from shelter living (the most dangerous being the chronic bronchitis).

Preaching to the choir, aren't I? *wry*

I just read it: brilliant, clear and concise writing. Every legislator in this country should have this on his(her) desk.

That's excellent! Makes me proud to know her, too.

You should be proud. I think she is a great lady.
