2017-05-22 19:18:09 UTC  

But its not an every day cough

2017-05-22 19:18:29 UTC  

But i have ir on my medical file

2017-05-22 19:18:34 UTC  

yeah I get you, was wondering what had been tried though

2017-05-22 19:18:42 UTC  

it makes sense that asthma medication would help

2017-05-22 19:18:49 UTC  


2017-05-22 19:19:23 UTC  

Yeah it relaxes the broncules things in your air sacs that allows them to deconstruct

2017-05-22 19:19:26 UTC  


2017-05-22 19:20:13 UTC  

I just know that no matter how many documents you have for it they will still ask you to see their specialists

2017-05-22 19:20:19 UTC  

And wait lists are months long.

2017-05-22 19:20:24 UTC  

yeah its one of those things unfortunately

2017-05-22 19:20:28 UTC  

persistent cough

2017-05-22 19:20:44 UTC  

the US is so much more litigous in its medical culture as well

2017-05-22 19:20:58 UTC  

that these people are essentially forced to go through with unnecessary referrals etc.

2017-05-22 19:23:54 UTC  

Yeah. And on top of that you can't have a doctor who knows you by name anymore.

2017-05-22 19:24:26 UTC  

how come?

2017-05-22 19:25:06 UTC  

my fiance does medical malpractice litigation and has a lot of really interesting insights into this field

2017-05-22 19:25:17 UTC  

she's really pessimistic too

2017-05-22 19:26:00 UTC  

doctors don't know you by name because general practitioners are dying out and the field is fracturing into nothing but specialist doctors who see endless patients

2017-05-22 19:26:47 UTC  


2017-05-22 19:27:00 UTC  

I've had the same dentist for the last 15 years and she's retiring soon.

2017-05-22 19:27:21 UTC  

I'm worried about going to a dentist with commercial advertisements.

2017-05-22 19:27:23 UTC  

I see I thought it may have been something legislative so was taken aback

2017-05-22 19:27:36 UTC  

yeah this specialist thing extends beyond medicine

2017-05-22 19:27:52 UTC  

into science, into many fields, honestly just in general as well even in seemingly unrelated stuff

2017-05-22 19:28:00 UTC  

compartmentalization, cocooning

2017-05-22 19:28:09 UTC  

in the US, some people can justify it

2017-05-22 19:28:19 UTC  

Im glad im figuring this shit out at 19 rather than later in life.

2017-05-22 19:28:35 UTC  

like I know of one surgeon who does like 300 laparascopic (cameras + minimal access) kidney removals

2017-05-22 19:28:54 UTC  

when you have a workload like that, it's fine if it's pretty much all you do

2017-05-22 19:29:29 UTC  

but you have someone sitting in the UK instead, he won't be doing nearly as much

2017-05-22 19:30:12 UTC  

but will nevertheless be stuck in that narrow area due to the way the system is

2017-05-22 19:30:31 UTC  

yeah I think you're doing pretty good for 19

2017-05-22 19:31:56 UTC  

Like ive had full on discussions with my parents and irs so different

2017-05-22 19:34:35 UTC  

It's partially and indirectly legislative in the US. pan-agency regulations on the field heavily favor the transition to specialist medicine and gigantic health conglomerates over the traditional "town doctor" kind of model. The same is true with law and many other fields as you point out. The impetus has been there for decades - the results are just becoming really clear

2017-05-22 19:34:55 UTC  

what have your discussions been about, Isaac

2017-05-22 19:35:17 UTC  

Mostly the future of america and the riots.

2017-05-22 19:35:55 UTC  

I knew if I ever burned a flag of any kind my parents would whip me up and down the street.

2017-05-22 19:36:32 UTC  

But we also talk about how the majority of the time that the most violent ones are the ones with least to argue with.
