And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crocks is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

This is absolutely ridiculous.

I live in New Zealand. My mum had a heart attack when I was 13, she was in hospital for at least 3 months and our government pays for most of our bills so I think my parents only had to pay around about $500 - 1k. With the option to pay it over a period of time.

Like????? Does the America government even give the slightest fuck about the people that live in their country???? Honestly.

this is horrifying

The Canadian baby bill is only because they asked for a private room. And actually, sometimes they have to stick you in a private room because the ward is full (like when I went in for tonsillitis complications last winter) but they can’t charge you since you didn’t ask for it. 

Ain’t tradin’ this for anything. There’s ways to make the Canadian healthcare system better (it’s far from perfect), but it could be so, so much worse.

I’ve had this skin problem for YEARS, where the back of my hands get dry and itchy and red and scaly and so fucking gross. When I scratch, it develops small bumps that oozes out clear fluid and I sometimes can’t fucking stand my own skin that I just want to take a knife and cut it all off.

Creams and ointments work temporarily and then not at all. The one time I went to a dermatologist, he took one look, declared it a fungal infection without even taking a culture, prescribed me a cream which made it 10x WORSE. I didn’t go back. That five-minute appointment came right out of my pocket, I don’t have insurance, and basically fml.

The only thing I’ve been slathering on is vaseline ointment to avoid dryness and itching. If the itching is unbearable, the only relief I have is turning the faucet hot enough that when I put my hands under it, you can see the steam.

I fucking burn my hands on hot water to prevent myself from scratching till I bleed.

Tonight they’re itching really bad that I want to cry. I’m so tired of dealing with whatever this is. Dermatitis? Psoriasis? Eczema? A fucking yeast infection that has been going on for five fucking years? I work in healthcare, and I deal with fucking MRSA and C.diff and infectious diseases and I’m always in a high state of anxiety because my skin, my fucking first line of defense, IS FUCKING BROKEN ALL OVER THE PLACE. I use gloves— guess what? IT IRRITATES MY SKIN MORE. I am very diligent with hand washing — guess what? IT DRIES UP MY SKIN MORE. And if my skin is dry? It fucking CRACKS ALL OVER LIKE I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS ALREADY. Hand sanitizers— yeah, you guessed it— THEY BURN. The fuck am I supposed to do?

Oh, and not to mention the sheer humiliation when clients and client families stare at my hands in question. “Oh, my hands get dry. Oh, it’s the weather, you know. No, it’s not contagious, I swear. Excuse me, I need wallow in embarrassment out in the halls. If you need anything, you have the call light.”

I just want to be free of this constant itching and constant burning and recurrent desire to rip my skin off. I want to stop being so deathly afraid of antibiotic-resistant infections and the urge to bleach everything in sight. I want to be able to do my work without worrying what my clients are thinking of my visible body issue. I WANT TO HAVE NORMAL LOOKING SKIN THAT DOES NOT ITCH ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

I’m so tired of this.

East of Kensington is a dark introspective look into the tale of Peter Pan. It shows us the grim reality of this fairy tale. It’s 20 minutes long. When I was 10, I was obsessed with Peter Pan (mostly Jeremy Sumpter from Peter Pan 2003). If an attractive male showed up at my window and whisked me away to a magical land full of fairies, mermaids, and pirates, I would be ecstatic. But this short film makes me doubt all of it. (Watch it here) (Masterpost of creepy short films)
