  • How is it in the UK, is the healthcare system socialized there like in Canada? My friends in Canada say they have to wait alot there.. I hope you find relief soon my friend.. It's sooo good to have a spouse at home who understands at least some of the time... Thanks for the FB badge I liked this site on my FB..
