  1. Unsent Letter to StepMIL

    StepMIL,
    You have spent over four years talking about me and my children and husband. You have been caught talking to other people about our finances, my parents and my husbands real mother! You have been caught more than once doing it all in writing! This is insane to me that you proudly state that you will destroy me. I do not even know what that means nor do I ever want to know!

    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. I quickly learned more than I ever thought I would about how the Finnish system works.
