I've been reading up on the NHS and it does seem like there are some major issues at the moment. But the experience I've had with them has been downright magical compared to the US. You mean someone will talk to me, even see me, before business hours? I don't have to wait in an ER for hours because I'm not actively dying? I don't need five referrals and endless insurance paperwork only to have bills and denied claims arrive months later? Come at me, oh ye who don't believe in free universal healthcare. No, seriously. I'm kind of spoiling for a fight on this one.
Still probably won't be updating too much, but today is definitely an improvement on yesterday. I managed to get upright, leave my room, make soup, eat said soup...what a successful day.
Hope you are all having very happy - and most importantly, healthy - starts to your new year.
