Barring something horrible happening in the next 7 weeks I will end the year with $0.00 spent

on health care. I'm not congratulating myself on it, that's not something I would ever do. I'm very lucky to not have serious health problems and just get through small illnesses and injuries.

Every year I don't have to give them any of my money is a good year!

1. I'm right there with you.

I've been to a Dr. once in 20 years and that was about 5 years ago.

edit to add: I figure it will all catch up to me one day and I'll just drop dead. I've requested that my son spen no money on my funeral. Just have me cremated and put me in his father's urn.

10. None spent with health care providers or facilities. $0.00 out of my HSA and none out of pocket to

them either.

6. I am about to go to the grocery store's pharmacy and get a flu shot, but that

will be my only expenditure this year for medical care also. I have no insurance and just try to stay healthy.

I don't count naproxen and pepto-bismol and cannabis expenditures because those are not medical "care".

7. Did you eat well? Fruits and vegetables?

Then you spent money on health care.
