That's the only expense I can't handle for the rest of my life on what I
currently own.  I am a light eater and have a house, and three good cars, I
know how to fix old junk and get by on just a little, no expensive habits.
I am a champion cheap-ass.

Owwww, so sorry to hear.  I have been there, felt like I was being torn in
half.  Do pass along to Jodie this encouraging word: it happened exactly
once, that was a long time ago.  I cut back from over half a gallon of
strong black coffee a day to less than one liter, replaced with straight
water, never a recurrance.  My father-in-law had kidney stones exactly once,
gave up vitamin supplements, never a recurrance.
