Snappy answers for dumbasses

I am a 38 year old divorced woman working part-time with no medical insurance. I dropped my $10K deductible government policy last year because it didn’t seem to make sense to continue paying premiums for something I couldn’t afford to use. I have a 20-year history of minor & major depressions & recently diagnosed myself with diabetes while treating my cat for it. I last saw a doctor & my dentist in 2008.
My younger brother committed suicide at age 28, due in part to the lack of appropriate medical care & insurance.

We are both part of the 99% & we are not alone.


Dear Diabetes Dilettante,
We're truly surprised your marriage didn't work out. Any woman with no medical training who can use a cat's illness to diagnose her own diabetes is quite the catch. A real keeper. Even the great Wilford Brimley needs to buy diabeetus testing supplies.
You're a veritable medical magician! (And seriously, how are you single? It boggles the mind.)
We're sure dozens of human diseases could be diagnosed by the average Joe if only he knew how to read the cryptic signs in every purr and meow. You owe it to the 99 Percent to share your talents with the world. If you don't, why, you're no better than the greedy Wall Street fat cats.
And really, there's nothing insane about this skill of yours at all, so don't let anyone tell you you're nuts. They're just jealous.

Idiots?
Morons?
Self-absorbed, lazy-ass whiners?
All of the above?

Maybe the brother, poor bastard, offed himself because of her??

Anyone who can count to 20 without taking their shoes off can work on a tugboat. Pay starts at 40k a year with full bennies. Anyone who complains that their PART TIME job isn't paying enough or providing them insurance can take a flying fuck at a rolling donut.
