A friend sent me this blurb she came across on her internet travels.
It gives a human side to the health care debate.
I’d give credit but have no idea how to do that in this case.Â Â The friend doesn’t remember where it came from.
Â H1N1 â€œNone dare call it swineâ€ fluâ€¦
Yeah, I thought the name change was kind of silly tooâ€¦ until I actually caught H1N1.
I now understand the utility of using H1N1 instead of telling people you have the Swine Flu.
Sidenote: since Iâ€™m a Canadian, once I was ambulatory, I called my doctorâ€™s office on a Sunday morning, got an appointment for later that afternoon, waited 5 minutes to see my doctor, had a swab taken & received a prescription (which my (government) employerâ€™s health plan covered). I got my test results the next day (the doctor called me at home to tell me I tested positive for H1N1) & was almost totally recovered after 4 days.
Yep, socialized medicine sure does suck.
