Randall, I think your MD was just covering his/her their premiums are so high that they have to do something to keep them as low as possible.

I am wondering whatever became of the right to privacy in one's home. Last night I mouthed off at a rude telemarketer, and the next thing I knew, there were 2 cops at the door, thinking I was holding a gun to my head, or some damn  thing.  All I said to the telemarketer, was "What do I have to do to make you clowns leave me alone?  Kill myself? I am already on the Do Not Call Registry!"  The salesman said something like "I don't give a f*ck," and disconnected, and the next thing I knew, the police were at the door....stomping into my bedroom, and I had two scared cats hiding in my closet.. 

Wonderful night.

I am really, REALLY tired of "Nanny government."

Just to vent a bit: my health update (in deference to Felaine) was a total waste of my time. 10 minutes to check in, 10' waiting, 15' answering "update" questions from nurse #1, 20 minutes reviewing my answers with nurse #2.  They weighed me, checked my pulse and BP and heart--that's all. It was all so stupid and unnecessary. I'm still fuming. I hope they all got my cold!

Just about recovered from stomach flu, but I managed to be at all my appointments. For the rest I slept most of the time.

How is everyone? I hope everyone is having a good week.

When it came back into hipness in the 1980s, I thought it was a prime example of clumsiness and silliness, so I use selective deafness and tune it out. I would never go to a doctor or medical center that used that word.

Nothing's wrong with "health."  Nothing's wrong with "wellness," either.  Hard to see a reason why anyone would be averse to it.  It's just as valid and unexceptional as "kindness," "rudeness," "plainness," "goodness," "meanness," "anxiousness," and many more.

WTF is wrong with "health"?  It's a short-sounding, unmistakeable word....and "wellness" should have died back in the 17th century.

Whoa, 'cat.  "Wellness" is a perfectly good standard noun.  What's more, it's well established in the language, dating back to the 1650s.

@ Sk8eycat - It could be replaced with "wellicity" or "wellitude."
