Re: Why Switzerland Has the World's Best Health Care System

When you are lying in the Emergency Room with almost 0% oxygen in your lungs or body, and people talking at you and injecting you with things, and actually, frightening you is not nice. And rushed to X Rays and scans and blood tests at 4 in the morning after sitting there for 10 hours.... Not nice.

You don't give a shit about money - you give a shit about not making your family cry if you die.

By the way, my oxygen level is up to 99% now. And who did that? Dedicated PROFESSIONAL doctors and nurses and all the rest. Who are paid for that. And, in the nurses pay, probably not enough.

Aresid, I wish you best in your life. But you have no idea what shite will hit you when you are 40 or 50 or 70. I didn't. Healthy, happy etc. then the landslide.. Six months ago, around about this date. Screws you up.

But you gotta change your attitude. I was 19 once, and my whole life was in front of me. And i have loved it!! Lots of fun. Now i am 53 and ill. But my whole life is still in front of me. And my Insurance will help me with that. I am not a an injured animal that you leave at the side of the road just because i am "old" and ill and have lost my hair and 10 kilos.

My bucket list is now up to 12!! Giraffes still at the top, then Mombassa, then Thailand, then...... who knows? Maybe after Thailand, i'll pop to Hong Kong and check out their awesome cheap 7 Star hotels...!!! With that lovely view of the Bay. Or was that Singapore, can't remember.

Old age and drugs confuse me.
