13. Laughter is a great tonic
Obviously it can't cure everything, but it makes things easier sometimes, if only for a moment or two.

I'm familiar with Manchausen's. Isn't anorexia rare in guys? Maybe that's a myth. I dunno.

You probably know infinitely more about the Medicaid stuff than anyone here, so I can't help you with that. Just know you're not alone. If you can, think about some sort of support group. Often those don't cost anything, or very little. But I suspect you may have already tried that.

Man, I hate to see people go through this shit. You will be in my thoughts and I admire your courage.

PS- by all means, enjoy those Steelers. They're having a great year!
