Busy afternoon
« on: Today at 03:44:11 PM »
Here I am ready to leave home to my first public health care ID visit. For those who don't know, I live in Mexico where HIV treatment is free, though access to the actual services sometimes is bureaucratic and troublesome.

After the initial visit to the public GP three weeks ago I was scheduled for my today's appointment with the specialist. It was actually quite fast as I've been told that certain fields such as psychiatry have wait times of months.

On the side I have a private ID, but medicines being so expensive I am going to put my severe tax deduction of my last 15 years to work (can you believe income tax is more than 30%?).

Anyway, wish me luck. Today is when I find out how and when I will be having access to my drugs. And yes, I'm feeling a bit anxious; good thing is that tonight I'm also visiting my therapist.

Well, gotta go...
