The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Socialized Medicine Works

From our friends over in England (via Blue Crab Boulevard):

A 22-year old British woman went to her free general practitioner doctor to get free treatment for her severe headaches. She was told—for free—that her headaches were the result of stress. She kept going to the GP and kept being told—for free—that it was just stress. For eleven months she was told the same thing. The GP finally realized something might be amiss and scheduled an urgent MRI for her. 13 weeks into the wait for the urgent MRI, she collapsed and died, killed by the undiagnosed brain tumor that had been there all along.
