I've got 3 mates who are really sick.

One (quite a new mate but I've never seen him well) has had an ongoing condition for 5 years and his Consultant has just given him the runaround yet again and he's shockingly depressed but only to me. I wish him the strength to tell the Docs this and for them to find out exactly what's wrong with him, it's the not knowing that's killing him.

One has a heriditary heart condition that flares up in times of stress and he's just been hospitalised, out today (hopefully).

One has some sort of abnormal brain activity that was only disgnosed after $14,000 worth of scans that his health insurance didn't cover. He's now working flat out to pay for the next batch of tests. We beat up the NHS but I don't think we realise how lucky we are.

They are all under 30.

I was pretty sick myself last year but I came out the other side OK and I'm virtually back to normal. [TG]

Your health is absolutely everything, take care of it.

My prayers are with them all.

Alex

Hey thank you!

OK, so the first guy had his appt on Friday - Not only was the Consultant a no show but they moved the dept and the nurse he saw said that these new tests weren't necessary! He's bypassing everything and everyone and coming to St Marks in London - This is all private btw, he's lost thousands of pounds.

Guy number 2 is out (literally only in overnight, talk about bed shortages!) and 100% fine but one of those 'delicate' people - ie have a fight with him and he gets sick - *sigh*

Third guy is seeing Docs tomorrow - fingers crossed

Wishing them all well, and same for you Alex.  I wasn't around much last year, but remember seeing that you were ill - didn't realise it had been quite that serious though.  So glad you recovered.

You're right that we're lucky to have an NHS, but then when they treat people the way your first friend has been it's hard not to wonder what the hell is going on with it, and where does all the Nat. Ins. money go, since it's obviously not being spent on effective treatment!

It's terrible that your friends are having to spend so much to get proper treatment, and even worse when you think there are people about who are desperately in need of healthcare around the world and can't get it whether they have the money to pay for it or not.
