And i'm a new nurse. I've been an earlier year. After a year working on a surgical step down unit i the patient ratios sticks to one. I've been reinforced every day. About how totally screwed up. Our healthcare system is and i love being with my patients. And helping them the way i but it's excruciatingly taxing because we're just doing things to patients and it seems so so clear that it has been are on just billing people as much as possible. What mike is saying here is something i keep trying to get across. The system is full of so many people who care deeply about their patients but the way things are structured now isn't working for the majority of americans so this is just a phone call. Where on just venting could fell totally upsetting every day on doing things. That just feels so wrong because it feels like. I'm eating a system. That clearly does not have the patient in mind. You had the biggest stay colors mind. Which are the executives. And the cardiologists the people who make half billion dollars a year a billion dollars a year like they are at the center of our healthcare system. Frustrating this point because it really gets at the core of what's wrong with our system. It clearly doesn't have patients in mind.

This is a painful condition that causes the tissue that normally lines the uterus trigger on the outside of it instead flare ups or random and can render people bedridden and in some cases like jockeys it could even cause infertility. I was diagnosed. When i was twenty. Four i've been in and out of the hospital with pelvic pain so severe. I couldn't walk. No one could figure out what was wrong with me. I saw multiple specialists several of whom were completely dismissive at my pain. I finally found a guy now who is understanding who really believe me and said let's go ahead and perform surgery to see what we find much like on this story at the top of the episode. It took time for jackie to convince specialist pay attention to the chronic pain. She was experiencing because of endo and the actual diagnosis added another layer to an already upsetting and life altering condition one of the hardest parts of getting dyke now and the most expensive part of it. Is that even if you have. All the symptoms of only surgery can officially confirm it so even at the time i had pretty good insurance and the first surgery.
