Lots of options for things to do. As long as I can still drive a car. Transportation is probably my fault. I'm still very independant and like it when I can go when I want to or need to go somewhere. Medical needs are taken care of from "First responders to care providers. (as long as you have the cash.) I back mine up with treatment from the VA. I have a 70% disability. The mVA treats me for PTSD, diabetes, hypertension, pain legs and back. They are to far away from me for reasonable, quick treatment. Scheduled appointments are fairly good. But, they keep the appointments to a maximum of 15 minutes. Now what can you discover or treat in 15 minutes? Glad I can afford treatment and appointments in Milwaukie. (at least for now.)
