Win win

Nothing like getting out of the house to clear your head.

Walking along Lighthouse Ave. in Monterey, looking for a certain restaurant a realization came to me.

It's not necessary to tell the doctors exactly where they're wrong. I can go along for the ride, thinking my own thoughts.

Also, no need to lament what my insurance (Blue Shield) does or does not cover. They're going to cover only whatever they feel like covering. It's always going to be less than what I (and most other people) need.

The real solution is to admit being depressed, very much so, in every doctor's office every time I am prompted. Take the prescriptions for antidepressants, fill them using my insurance, then sell them on the Internet. To people who actually want them and need them.

Divert the money to hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Why didn't I think of this before?


  1. ...Perhaps I am naive, but is there a market online for that? It probably would generate more than bake sales. I hear you about Anthem/Blue, though. With their bewildering mix of plans, which don't cover what you need unless you pay out the ears.
    Oh, man, that looks like Gilroy (I know you said Monterey, but still). You're making me want to get on the bike, even in the rain.

    1. Well, I am naive too but yeah, yeah there is an online market for pretty much any prescription drug. So I understand... What the HBOT people tell me is it's not covered by any plans, except for a few "special" ones. Which I assume are those boutique plans that CEOs, etc. have. The 1%. And if you're in that category $7k is nothing to you.

      That's part of what's shocking. It has taken both a lot of money and a lot of time to get help for TBI. Who has both those things? Not most people.
