My health “insurer,” Blue Shield of California, just sent me a helpful note about anxiety.
They point out that we’re all anxious because of “recent world events,” and that’s normal.
They then go on to suggest every possible solution for mental distress that does not cost them money. Included are: homeopathy (!!!) which can “bring temporary relief.”
Also included are “Complementary and alternative health” solutions which are all very inexpensive and not covered by any insurance.
It’s a wonder they don’t just tell people to drink.
I await their instructions on setting your broken leg with reiki, wearing magnetic pants to reduce arthritis, and the magic of going overseas to get health care where they don’t have to hear about it.
