  1. Finnish Health Care

    Finnish Medical System Part 2

    This is a slightly updated version of an essay I wrote a couple of years ago.

    Then, June 2006 I became seriously ill and had to go into the hospital, and was left with a long-lasting physical problem I have been assured by American doctors that the same thing would have happened if I had gotten sick in the USA.

    Thanks for letting me vent..

    I guess I'm just really thankful my MIL lives a thousand miles away. However, it doesn't stop her from meddling, manipulating and generally being a pain. She thinks the world revolves around her and doesn't understand why everyone doesn't do her bidding. She hates me (I am referred to as "that woman") for standing up to her from the very beginning. She has only seen her 4 1/2 year-old grandson once. Her ONLY grandchild.

    Well, today started out horrible. As usual. We live in a 1935 old farmhouse with a front porch. When we moved in, there were 2 barn swallow nests on the front porch under the eaves. I left them alone at that time because there were babies in it. When winter came around, I knocked down the 2 nests.
    Well, here it is springtime and the swallows are coming around again trying to build their nests.
    I don't want them on the front porch because they poop all over everything, will dive ...

  5. Need any info on nosebleeds...

    Okay so about a year ago I started having really bad nosebleeds. I was having them about once to three times a week. They would bleed for atleast 30 minutes if not longer. Whats so strange is I had Never Ever had a nose bleed my entire life until then. I just started having them constantly and it is normally in the mornings or before lunch. So about 5 months ago I went to a nose specialist and she Cautherized my nose. That"s where they burn the vessel shut so it wont bleed anymore. I had one ...
