the flip side

Having recently been raked over the coals by health care costs, I feel like raging against the Insurance Corporation Machine. But since I have committed myself to struggling to see the how things look from the other side, I would like to offer two reasons why, I think, I should not be directing all my ire at the weasel-monkeys who are getting rich off my ailments. First, because they are trying to cover health costs in a country where most people think medicine is a magic wand that can at any time erase a lifetime of bad choices. And second, because there are a lot of people out there who go to the doctor every time they stub their toe. I'm sure it's way more complicated than I'm making it, but I'm just trying to acknowledge that systemic problems are created and sustained by all parts of the system. Including, I suppose, me.
