Alcohol is too cheap here I had to give up, 2 years going strong my only issue is tobacco is sold by the kilo at £2.

ye lads can **** on universal healthcare all you want, but when it comes your turn for pain and violent shaking/tremors in the hands, and you have no health insurance so can't risk the bills to see anyone for help... i tell ya... its scary mates. y'all are very lucky to have universal healthcare even if it is semi-broken. some countries do it better than others. next time i have an apple cider, i will raise my glass to hoping the UK improves its own version instead of butchering it. fear and pain are the worst, i wouldn't wish my current situation on anyone, enemy or ally.

Ah, no, the tremors started about 13 years ago, and have progressively gotten worse over the years. At first it was just a finger or two in my early twenties, now its my entire arm damn near. It will pass soon, I am used to it. Usually only happens once a month or so but it has been increasing in frequency. Doctors did lot of tests on me a few years ago and everything is fine on their end, so I don't know. They don't know either, but it would be nice to get a second opinion.

How old are you if you dont mind me asking? I have literally just turned 40 but already my eyesight seems to be getting worse by the day, and I'm always asking my BFF to repeat what she said as it seems she is mumbling lol, I expected more of a drawn out worsening of my eyes and ears but it seems that when you hit 40 it just seems to go downhill from there :laugh:

mid 30's. i hope my eyesight stays good until at least 50... that would suck... can you still enjoy outside nature in 20/20? when you get older and eyesight begins to go, its mostly just reading stuff right, hence reading glasses? but actually seeing like waterfall or nature from far away, is still 20/20 and enjoyable vision?

Over the last year or so I see myself pulling back bottles and other things with small writing on so I can focus, have always been 20/20 before then, it's not too bad right now but 5 years give or take this could be a problem, I've just turned 40, thought my 20/20 would hold me in good stead for another 20 years but reading glasses are defo going to be needed :cry:

I've been looking at the new ford ev truck, compared to Britain the electrical grid here can be bad at the best of times and the fact it can be used as a whole house power bank seems very appealing. I will just have to wait for them to be stocked here as paying the 300% import duty doesn't sit well with me and the thought of using a ev bike or any bike here is just asking for death.

Why are we paying National Insurance? The NHS is shit! Sorry, but someone had to say it.

I've been in severe wisdom tooth pain since Thursday. I called 6 dentists. 3 of them told me to sod off (not literally, but still - wtf?). One didn't return the call. One said they're not taking NHS patients, but they're happy to book an appointment for the 15th Oct on a private basis (again, wtf?). Then I managed to book myself in at a private clinic in Birmingham for the 12th Oct (I've given up on this NHS bullshit), but only because I'm in pain. Now I have to live on ibuprofen for the next week and a half, and pay private prices just because the country can't cope with NHS dentistry. :mad:

What the F is wrong with healthcare in this country? Seriously, the next time they ask us to stop working and clap for the NHS at work, I'm just gonna go for a fag (even though I don't smoke). I'm not gonna clap for this money-grabbing, dysfunctional, dictatorial national organisation, that's for sure. :banghead:

Boris Johnson been gutting NHS since he got into power. lots and lots of backdeals. universal healthcare works just fine in many other countries @Mussels oystralia with lots of oysters and such, Canada isn't the best example but they honestly aren't bad either, Nordic countries/Denmark, that region of the world in general is probably the best example. Japan seems to do just fine with it.

UNiversal Healthcare only works when everyone is on the same page for a long period of time, and UK is being split down the middle with misinformation campaigns, same as what happened in America.

From what i understand is between management,non professionals(admin staff) and government the NHS has been driven to near the point of death. clapping for doctors and nurses was the least the public could do really most should have had their wages doubled. The hatred you have for the NHS should in no way be directed at the medical staff just the egocentric paper pushers.
