Healthy Happy Long Life:  This is my non-partisan non-political message! I know about long-term care, & spending all of one’s savings on nursing care because of totally disabling strokes & vascular dementia. If you have a long-term chronic illness & live long enough–there’s a good chance you can end up in a nursing home & eventually need medicaid. It’s pretty hard to afford long-term care for too many years.
It’s time to talk about the ONLY way we are going to deal with this spiraling-out-of-control health care cost deficit.

Otherwise, we are heading towards a crisis (emotional & fiscal) that no amount of $$ will solve. We need to make eating healthy & exercising “the norm”, “the default” for everyone!! Here’s my story: http://www.happyhealthylonglife.com/happy_healthy_long_life/2012/03/centenarian_strategies.html
