No offense intended, truely, and perhaps I mis-understood your statement but cold hard logic is found with text books, doctors and statistic, not on health support forums.
It is extreamly expensive and difficult to obtain medical care in America without medical insurance. I am glad all in Europe and the UK are able to obtain it so freely but hard, cold logic does little when the money is tight and medical problems need to be looked at.
I am $30,000 in debt and I have insurance, you can imagine what would happen if I had no coverage. Not to mention $30,000 is on the low side for medical debt.
Please understand that we come here for support, compasion and advice, not cold, hard logic. I would not come here if cold hard logic was the norm. I and possibly many others get enough of that in other places.
In america if it is between making sure your family has food and shelter or getting an MRI or X-ray(costing thousand out of pocket) The family wins out most every time.
In that way, sueing Doctors for wrongful actions is very beneficial if that Doctor has caused a loss of the patients employment thus causing the loss of a way to pay for fixing or diagnosing the damage they have caused.
I really mean no offense as this is the second post I've disagreed with and am glad you are so knowlegeable about
certain medical conditions and problems. And it is your own experience which fuels your replies and I respect that. And while I have no argument to your post in general I have to be honest in saying I am a little put off by your statement of offering less compassion because hardness and coldness and pure logic are what gets results when facing a hard time. And while those were not your exact words, that is message I recieved, I could be mistaken that that was the intent.
I hope you keep in mind that we are here for support, compassion and understanding. And while sugar coated information is not always beneficial, obtaining harsh logic is as easy as stepping out the door.
I believe you can show warm fuzzy compassion and logic at the same time.
I just wanted to explain to you how I took your words, knowing I may have misunderstood. And while you defenitly have not been cruel to anyone, I just dont want anyone having a hard time to feel alone and helpless in there fight to find out what the problem is.
In suffering, we are given the key to a door which most rarely
get to open. Behind it lies the ultimate gift which is only visible
in our darkest hour.
