If we are just pulling a life together, where will our kids live, what jobs will they have that it will be easier. But there's nothing you can really do. In reality you are in a better position than a great majority of the nation. So you have to recognize this and fin and way to live with it.

Well, my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer last march and she died in July. Her general doctor never sent her out for a chest xrays and her bone doctor never investigated the constant pain in her hip area, which ended up being pain from cancer that spread to her bones. Dr's always wrote off as loss of bone density. Once my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, general dr. told her to see a pulmonary dr. first and not an oncologist. Took us a month to see an oncologist, when it really should have been oncology first. I just feel like these dr's dropped the ball with my mother. So, I have no idea if who to talk to about this.

Value investors can keep their work 100% legal. HF models work differently. You are expected to be an active investor and sitting on Apple for 5 years will get your butt fired. They trade on trends, catalysts, earnings surprises etc.. - to get the scoop and bet correctly most of the time, they really need to work the phones and tap into their inside network.
