Health Care for Ulcerative Colitis
Hello again , I already posted about how I think Alcohol helped me get into remission , a remission that I have OH SO enjoyed for the last 02 months , finally got back to all the things I used to love ..
What I really want to ask my fellow UCers is how did your condition fare in your respective countries’ health care system .. obviously the meds and treatments are not cheap .. so I am very curious as to which countries have the best health care system ..
I for one , am so happy I left the USA before I got diagnosed .. I can only imagine being there , probably losing my job because of the condition ( as it happened to many of us) and then finding yourself in a situation where you are unemployed and have no health insurance to pay for the meds and doctors bills ..
Now I live in a third world country ( Morocco) , my health insurance covers 90% of the bills , and even unemployed I am covered for at least 60% .. we don’t get the best state of the art treatments obviously , but not like it matters in our condition ..
We all know and have realized that stress is of the utmost importance in getting Ulcerative Colitis and falling into flares all over again .. it is a very vicious cycle , being sick , being unable to perform in our jobs as we did before with the lack of energy and motivation , losing a job , having no money to sustain ones self , finding it hard to afford meds etc .. I assume anyone who is in that situation is basically in some kind of quick sand of nightmarish proportions .. no way out !
This Forum , thanks to Adam , I see attracts people from all over the world , and I am very interested to know which countries have the best health care system related to our specific illness ?
