Yesterday I was distracted by planning a trip to Denmark. Hubby has wanted to go for some time. He’s a family history buff and is writing a book. He’s about reached the limits for research options online and in Canada. He wants to go and actually see places and take photos. So I costed out a one month trip and sighed in dismay. Denmark is an expensive place to visit!
I finished reading Chronic Condition finally. It was a tough slog for me. The Canadian health care system is very complicated and very sick. I don’t know what the answers are. One of the answers the author suggests is making a federal drug plan that purchases all the drugs for everyone in the country, and is partially paid for by automatic deductions from our paychecks. In fact, he likes the idea of a patient partial payment for services too, to avoid overuse of the health care system. I do not like that. It penalizes people who are genetically predisposed to bad health. At any rate, Chronic Condition is a thought provoking read, and I think a necessary read if one wants to carry on an intelligent conversation about Canada’s health care system.
I read more of The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide by Dr. David Miklowitz too. Also scanned ahead a bit, reading key sections. I need to go back and slow down and take my time reading it. I’m not a fast reader. However the material in this book is good and worth the read.
On the rug hooking front… I finished the 8 star ornaments! Now onto the 8 circle ornaments. 🙂
