Doctor Appointment

I can't fucking get one.

After being sick for 2.5 weeks, I finally broke down and decided to call my doctor. Guess when the next available appointment is?

..the end of April. APRIL! I could be dead by April. sonsabitches..


I know old people are to blame. Old people book appointments 6 months in advance and eliminate the chance for someone who is actually sick and not 108 years old to get to the doctor.

Argh.

I live in the boonies of NE Ohio, Billy. The "amish ghetto" as I call it.

Middle of nowhere, basically.

Go to a clinic or something.

Around here, the CVS drugstore has something called the "Minute Clinic" where they have a nurse who does a quick exam and gives a perscription. Costs about $60 plus the perscription, and im pretty sure they accept most insurance.

Move to the UK the NHS see you whenever you make an appointment. I was there yesterday trying to get some happy pills but I have to go back on friday because of the shit thats going on here.

How much are the prescriptions there if you want Pills for epilepsy? I bet it's quite steep.

Do you get medication on your insurance or do you have to pull that out of your own pocket?

I hear that you can get free health care over in the USA but I'm not sure if that's actually true?

Not true. I pay 22% in taxes here, and in America I paid 20% and insurance premiums and copays and prescription costs.

Can someone please explain to me in Lenina terms please? I'm confused because I just woke up.

So Americans have to have insurance because health care over there is not free but the people who don't have insurance don't get it free because they have to pay taxes? Or do the people over there who can't get healthcare insurance not pay anything and it comes out of the working man's pocket which is what happens over here really so that kind of explains a lot. BUT, healthcare over here is free for everyone, working or not and they don't have to pay insurance but they do have to contrabute to the medication.

I think the second one made more sense.

basically over here if you don't know anything and you make little money and aren't intelligent you get screwed in the ass by paying all sorts of taxes for leeches to milk the system. If people are smart though they find a way to get at least 90% coverage from the company they work for or a company they work with, or they can buy a house and buy their health insurance with the house insurance at the same time and just end up making 1 payment that you can eventually cash in on if your houses value increases.

And the only way health care is "free" in England is if you aren't paying any taxes, otherwise youre paying for all the pakis to come in and force their wives to get vaginal reconstruction so the can be "virgins" again, read about that one yet?

That sounds like a sweet deal actually. I mean, that is better than how I'm living at the moment. I don't have a penny to scatch my arse with. Been trying to get back to work but there isn't any childcare that will look after my kids for the eratic hours I would work which is pissing me off because I don't want to be on any fucking benifits, it makes me feel useless and the government are all like 'We will pay for half of your chilcare if you find a job!' Yeah well fuck! It's just finding a chilminder that doesn't look like a fucking german nazi jackboot. That and most places for childcare are full for the whole year. I'm still haven't done my taxes off 3 years ago because the fucking government won't fucking help me AND I have to pay £180 for a fucking accountant. I don't have that sort of fucking money. I would love private healthcare, mainly because my mother died for being on a valve replacement list. Fucking terrible, she died at 49 years old because the NHS have a 3 year waiting list for valve replacement. My mother couldn't work, she was so ill and she had to fight for 13 fucking years for disability allowence. She was awarded a pittence and died 2 months later. How shitty is that?

I haven't heard of that one yet. I do believe in free healthcare for everyone, I mean, tax payers should do that if someone is poor and ill. I don't believe in Plasic surgery on the NHS, Feeding addictions, rehab etc... Mainly because it's their own fucking fault.
You can get fake tits on the NHS if you go to the doctor and cry about how depressed you are about your tits. Thats fucking redicule-arse!
People like my mother get the shit end of everything regarding the NHS, crackheads and fucking idiots who want plastic surgery but don't have the £5000 to get a tit job can go in and do it.

Did you know that if you are a drug addict or alcoholic, you get an extra £7 per DAY to feed your fucking addiction!?! I sued to smoke a pack of 20 cigarettes per day and I didn't get any money for it. You see what i mean, the fucking system is fucked!

AND my ex! My fucking arsehole ex gets legal aid to try and take my kids away from me because he is an illegal immagrant, he has applied for perminent residence in england WHILE LIVING HERE ILLEGALLY. Everyone else that comes into this country have to pay an admin fee of £900 and he just gets his handed to him. Here I am struggling to keep a fucking roof over my kids heads and put food on the fucking table.

I noticed Billy ignored me when I pointed out the facts in regards to the income tax rate in England. But moving on...

People are quick to complain about the NHS. But you do have the option to go private if you can afford to or really want to. For instance, I think it's asinine to pack people into non surgery specific mixed gender wards. So if I go under the knife, I go private.

I don't blame you. My cousin waited in the emergency room for 8 hours because she wasn't feeling too good. Anyway, she was just about to go home and they noticed that she had passed out on the floor. Made out that she had slipped into a coma. Her pancreas, Liver, lungs and kidneys had shut down on her. They had her in ITU for 2 months in a coma and then she was heavily sedated on top of that. In a ward full of people on life support like her.
She ended up with an infection so bad that they had to move her into a room on her own with little hope of her ever waking up.
SHe's recovering fine now but they totally fucked up because she still has the infection and can't shake it off because of her immune system. They really failed her and others like her. She said that she is going private from now on. I really don't blame her. If they had seen her an hour earlier, they would have been able to prevent the other problems she is having now due to her body just shutting down. The doctors even said it. She has to live with some of the stuff for life now, all she needed was a few injections and bed rest. Fucking terrible.

Yeah. Infection seems to be rampant in NHS hospitals. I'd never heard of such a thing back in America. The hospitals were always immaculately kept. That said, I enjoy not being $150,000 in medical debt. It's a trade off.

Infection versus $15000 debt...

I would go for infection too.

It's just a pity that the NHS always have the infections in their hospitals. I don't even understand why because it's like, up in Durham, they have hand wash and anti bacterial shit you must use before you go in. When my cousin was in intensive care, my auntie couldn't go in because she sniffed.

They're really stricked but the infections still slip through the cracks.
