Bring The Message of Health Care Reform Home

Next week our Representatives to Congress and Senators will be back in North Carolina. I for one will be paying them visits and I encourage those of you who want health reform to visit or call.
My stakes have risen in the last two weeks. I found out I not only have Multiple Sclerosis but I have Primary Progressive the form the new drugs do nothing for. There is no treatment or cure. I just find it harder to walk a little at a time. I am scared for my future. I used to do manual labor. I have done sheet metal, and plumbing, HVAC, and worked with animals. I fear the financial aspects more than the threat of a wheel chair. I do not relish anyone taking care of me. Health reform is not an interesting political exercise for me it is about my life. I am discouraged but I am not giving up not on myself and not health care reform. I know many of us have made many calls, sent many letters and e-mails, and visited. It is important to let our elected officials know we still care about this important issue.
