    And I received none. Although, the doctors who sent me home believed they were providing excellent care. When I called my primary he thought he was giving care when he said I would get a referral to a specialist. Appointment in a week. But I cannot breathe now. "You can wait a few days". This is what care under British national health is like. No. I went to a doctor, paid him and received care and appropriate medication, inhalers and breathing treatments. And, it was not even that much more than the copay.

    You'll now hear from the Appalachian Conservative Politburo why they prefer not being able to afford health insurance and why toothaches are 'god's' alarm clock.

    I had plenty of surgeries, glasses, casts, crooks, orthopedics and it didn´t cost me anything! Thanks in large parts to the filthy roaches, I nevertheless became that defaced, crippled motherfucker.
