I wish the ring (this Chronic Pain) had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened. (Frodo Baggins)
So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to us. (Gandalf the Grey)

How lucky are we to have our Medicare system? Yeh maybe some people are on waiting lists way too long or even get taken off it without notice. But I can’t complain hasn’t let me down in the past 12 years. I do know I probably would be years dead now if it weren’t for Medicare or in debt. Kinda is part of health care. If only I had a health care card for my meds. Harpy

G’day johnno,
Hope your new year brings you happiness.
Mine has started out pretty crappy with 32 stitches in my face after skin cancer , so had a very pretty black eye over Christmas. Now I have been told the margin wasn’t clear and the biopsy on my should that day is melanoma. So meeting with doc to talk more surgery, eek
No I am not lucky enough to be able to get a health care card. I Have to pay full price for my meds so a lot of the time we go without. Hence why we can’t afford air conditioning. Though I can cool a little with my feet in an esky of cold water lol lol
Would you know if those not on pensions are still eligible after they spend so much on meds? My husband now is on, blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol tablets. Something is going to have to give soon.
Thanks
Harpy

Hi Harpy,

If you are on any kind of govt subsidy you could be entitled to have PBS not knowing your particulars I can’t comment except contact you local Dept. of Social Security either on line or by appointment they should be able to steer you in the right direction.
Obviously if you are self funded you would still be entitled to something
