Just recently a friend has been having issues with pain. He is suffering from stomach pains and the NHS can’t find anything wrong. They have performed several tests, scans and nothings shows up. They are stumped.
He is taking new pain killers to reduce the pain although they only reduce the pain not eliminate it as they have limited how many he can have of the old pain killers that removed the pain much better.
The problem for him is that the new pain killers they are giving him have implications in the long term and he can’t keep taking them. The ones that don’t have issues and the ones that perform pain management better are now restricted issue and can no longer be prescribed as they were before, special issue or something. There have been changes in the NHS to reduce costs and make savings and these are one of the many changes that have been made to support that.
About time you may ask but these changes are making peoples lives a misery with additional pain while they are still performing SJW operations at expensive cost. Such is the inefficiency and management of our public servants.
On the plus side he seems to have changed his stance on our government. Nanny states seem to be less of his liking. 🙂
So it seems that it is not just after events that we will have issues with medicines. If this continues to increase scope, and it will with the NHS being a broken and inefficient behemoth, then we may have to start looking at alternative medicines now. As our access to legal but restricted medicines reduce we will need to look outside our nanny state to get alternatives and I don’t want to be buying from abroad as we cannot be sure of the quality. I don’t want to be making my own because I know it isn’t going to be as good as commercial produced medicines.
It will still be better than what I can get legally though as it can augment what I can get from our nanny state. To this end I’m going to revisit our previous look at alternative medicines. I was already looking at some solutions with a previous member of Survival UK, Ken Eames, and Ken did a few courses for us. Have a look in the archives for his work. You can start here.
It’ll improve our readiness and perhaps even help my friend.
