If you do, be sure to shop around. Not being on a corporate subsidized health plan for seven years we insure ourselves through a plan designed for the self-employed. My recent bout with a health issue opened my eyes in a lot of ways. It all began a few months ago when I would occasionally feel nauseated to the point where I did not want to eat at all. It came and went about one day per week. Two weeks ago to the day this condition became a daily occurrence, enough for me to return form a southern Illinois turkey hunting trip four days early. What really got my attention was an experience with the dreaded black stool.
