Sticker Shock  
I knew the price of healthcare was going to go up, a lot, but dang, I still got sticker shock when I opened the bill from my doctor's visit. Now, I was there for maybe twenty minutes to get my prescriptions renewed, saw a PA not the actual doctor. Last year, it cost me $90, this year? $175! My work insurance is a catastrophic policy, with a $5000 deductible, so that's all for me to pay. Yipers!

Ugh, I feel your pain! I have three doctor's appointments this month, and I'm cringing already.

I'm fortunate that so far, I'm relatively healthy. But that's bound to change.

And it's going to go more too. PPACA doesn't even become fully effective until 2014. Expect about another 32% increase at least by next year? Free is not free.

Yeah, I know. And it'll only get worse.

Oh yes, and it's only just begun. Of course, saying that, I can't get Karen Carpenter out of my head.
