I have lived on the 'eve of destruction' my whole life.
Over the years, my paranoia expanded like a bubble, but became more diffuse. Now I'm a little bit worried about everything.
for example, my appendix ruptured three years ago. Prior to the twentieth century, I would be dead--
I was incapacitated for 2 months and lost 25 pounds.
I lost 2 months and 25lbs to appendicitis when I was 14. As soon as I could walk I got up and got my grade school diploma, six feet tall and 125lb.

I don't think health care is the biggest danger. It's pets, sports* and religion.

*Especially golf.
