The Ramblings of a Former Caregiver
Paula, I've seen unhealthy rich people. I don't get it. Maybe because they're rich, they overindulge in everything which in turn ruins their health.
Well that could be Flora but I think if I had more money I would have the best health insurance, good food and a trainer to make me exercise. Plus I could hang out at the spa all the time. But then again I might just eat more expensive chocolate and drink better wine :)
Loving this challenge
Thanks Lass. Me too!
i guess it all depends on the folks you meet - most of the folks i meet that are truly rich are very mean, sad & no fun to be around. the ones that are rich in health, spirit & attitude are the ones that i love being around - i really feel that are totally rich in both healthy & self-worth & all that jazz. i guess it is a mind over matter type of issues? ( :
I know some awesome 'quite wealthy' people who have happily shared their wealth with others. But I do know what you mean
Money can buy better healthier versions of stuff. I like your answer!
Yes it can. Plus the meds that you need if you can't afford to buy them. Or the procedures that are needed if your insurance doesn't cover it. Or to go to another country if that country offers treatments that your country doesn't offer....I know there are illnesses that money wouldn't change things, but with money you might be more comfortable.
That is what I thought too. If I can't get treatment here, I can fly to where ever (on my private jet of course) and get the help I need there. To have the best of the best medical treatment at your fingertips. I guess which ever path we choose, it still ends up in death. Might as well enjoy the high life why we are here.
I thought about that...and then thought about my doggie... she was just diagnosed with cancer on Thursday. :(
Aww. Poor poochy. That makes me sad. We had a dalmatian that we spent a ton of money on to save his life and he still died. *hugs*
Ah April I am so sorry...I know that people with pets love them as much as they love their family!
I love your answer!
I can see your logic, but good health is not always determined by how good your life style is or the quality of your health insurance. There are conditions that just can't be managed or cured by rich resources. But you are a nurse and you already know that ... especially as a caregiver to your husband.I would have chosen differently, but this question sort of remind me of the question of the chicken or the egg - which came first. There are good arguments to be made for both sides.
You are right there Elaine. But like I said in my answer above to Cristy, if money can't cure an illness it can make you more comfortable as you are dealing with it. Money talks in the health care profession. Unfortunately!
I'm with you. If I was rich, I'd have a trainer and a chef, so I could eat better and be forced to exercise. That would make me healthier. :-)
I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
