>>447739>health problems are so radicalizing
I feel you OP, I'm sorry to hear that.
While not an innate medical problem covid nearly killed off some of my loved ones. And when it came for me I got it pretty bad too. I remember sitting there in the ER surrounded by people who had it way worse. Shivering and feverish I could feel the pain in my side where pneumonia was slowly growing in my lung making it harder to breath by the day (fuck even by the hour). It had been the tenth day of a fever that wouldn't go away, three days after I got confirmed to be positive. The very young resident doctor refused to give me antibiotics because "well since covid is a virus so it won't work" even though there were no other options except to "monitor the symptoms" which had been deteriorating by the day. My loved ones had to beg the doctor to sign off on giving me antibiotics (which due to one of them having some pull within the hospital system helped) which literally stopped the pneumonia within days (yet the post covid symptoms stuck with me for months). In the end, I survived but also had to pay a hefty medical bill due to not dying.
I was already "radicalized" by then but that shit changed me. Knowing that the system was bad is nothing compared to seeing its inefficiency and inhumanity at work with your life on the line. Seeing how it sees you not as a human being but a customer and how well you are served is based upon who you know and how much money you got while all around you people are suffering all the same (with a fucking disease that kills). Its horrifying and incredibly radicalizing.
Stay well OP and stay strong.
