Sweet Violets

Quiet people have the loudest minds
~ Stephen Hawking

lizziecorday:

I loved you, I disliked you, we argued and we kissed; Your face, your touch, your scent forever I shall miss; To hold you in my arms again, my soul no longer lost; I’d pay the price and gladly have no worry to the cost.

They say that life gets better and time will ease the pain; They’re fools who cannot see the truth, it can never be the same; No daytime and no nighttime just hour on hour on hour; And time has no more meaning now life’s not sweet it’s sour.

Some think we have a life-force or a soul some others say; If I had one I know it died that dreadful, dreadful day; Sometimes I know I hurt you, I know that was so true; But please forgive me for those wrong For I always will love you.

~Colin Jarratt

And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T

how can anaesthetic cost that much??

how is this legal??

WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.

You have to pay for the ambulance!?

This is JUST the ambulance. With insurance.

I’d like to point out that the last bill, the one labelled Alberta Health Services/Outrageous hospital bill for having a baby in Canada, only applies to one area in Canada to someone WITHOUT any health insurance. If you are on health insurance in Alberta and you have a baby, you aren’t charged because it would be billed to your insurance company. The bill may also change according to which province you live in as well.

This is what terrifies me about the ocean.




the few times I’ve gone snorkelling this is the most intensely scary but amazing thing about it, the bit where the reef ends and it suddenly just drops off and you cant see the bottom or what’s down there, and you swim over the edge and suddenly your in open water, and you feel so vulnerable like you’re a fish that lives on the reef, and you finally understand finding nemo 


you finally understand finding nemo


NO THANK YOU NOPE
