Genetic testing

That was a total bust. I went for testing to see if I carry the gene for colorectal cancer right? Well after I took the blood test and had it shipped to the lab in Utah, how bout they called me and said my insurance was not going to cover the cost and I would have to pay for it out of pocket.

Yeah and guess where that test went?

In the garbage!!!!

Honestly I can not afford a test that costs two grand. No way no how!!!

So the genetic counselor told me that I just have to get screened for colorectal cancer more closely from now on.

Uh how bout we could have done that in the beginning?

Saw my OD today and she put it on my lab work for this coming week.

Now how simple was that???


  1. Not right at all. Insurance and healthcare is motivated by tremendous greed. Universal Healthcare needs to be implemented. So many people go untreated because of cost and hoops you have to jump through to get anywhere, it can be frustrating but you seem to take it all in stride

  2. Did you say two grand? Oh my!! I like the simple stuff too.
