Sounds like you are dealing with your heartburn very proactively...........good for you.
I understand about the medical insurance. I took early retirement too but was lucky enough to be able to be added to my husbands health insurance. Lost my dental thow and his insurance would not allow me to have dental. You are right, health insurance is a tough issue for many.
