Hi,

Today I woke up early…………because I had to go see a doctor………..well the health care facilities are not very good in India………….for Indians………..you have to pay a hefty amount to doctors…………and then the tests…………….the private labs charge way too much………………so I left for New Delhi………..its around 50 55 kilometers from my home………….we used to live there earlier so my parents have faith on the doctors there………..I am on medications……….drug quantity is way over the prescribed limit……….I googled about every single drug i have been taking………..and the side effect was clots in my right eye……….I thought that its not good to go blind……….so I needed a second consultation from another doctor……….there is this armed force medical college………In India…………it is the best institute of medical……….according to me………because they take candidates that are officer material………no doubt that the enterence-exam is very tough……..so there is this clinic in New Delhi……….where they sit and examine patients as a charitable cause………and its the best consultation a poor person can get………..at minimum amount of money………..so I traveled………but there is a strict timeline associated………..and I missed it…………but I had to take a second opinion from another doctor…….so I visited this other clinic………the doctor though friendly straight away referred me to the hospital for tests and consultation of an MD………I went there………..the hospital is a government hospital…………so the services were as usual………..delayed and not very good………….the clerical level staff is the real bitch………….they are just not willing to listen……….and understand………..then the asshole physicians that examine you and refer to the specialists………..they are like trading agents………..he asked me what problem I would like to show…………my eye or my allergic cough…………I thought for a second and thought eye is more important……….then comes the running around from floor to floor…………room to room for examinations…………it took around 4 hours to get my eyes examined………..they just checked visibility…………where they make you read a board with alphabets…………..and some medicines………..these facilities could have been good if there are no scams that these son of bitches do…………..Its hard to think……..how much a person could go greedy…………but at present………….Medical facilities for common man suck……….

It's not mastitis, it's butter!

You’re the one
With the loneliness
Pierced into the subliming anger
Rosen dermis
Time passed
Pale lavender
Like a broken dream
Unearthing itself from the exasperated soul… 36 more words
