Jan, the health care system of Saskatchewan, Canada is very different from the health care system of Manitoba, Canada. I have attempted several times to explain the situation in my posts. It’s no use for others to generalize, or judge. That just makes me feel misunderstood and even more stressed.
It is of no help to me, because it just adds to my heavy load of trouble, and I don’t want to have to deal with discouragement and depression too.
Judi Z., how’s your dad? I’m sorry to hear that the system hasn’t addressed his medical needs. Here in Manitoba, and in other provinces in Canada, some doctors have decided not to accept certain patients anymore: such as those with Alzheimer’s and mental health illnesses, etc. They see these patients as being too much of a problem for them. Many people don’t even have a family doctor, because the doctors are more selective of whom they want to treat. When it comes right down to it, we all have to do the best we can, and may God help us. Anyhow, have a good day, everyone; take a moment (at least) to find comfort and happiness in what God provides.
