I thought Canadians had healthcare? Where is mine?

I was first saddened by the way this province health system is managed, now it has turned to disgust. I've countlessly reached out to multiple resources just to be put on a never ending wait list because the medical attention I seek is needed but since I cannot afford health insurance I am just shoved in an overworked neglected system.

I understand our system is over burdened and had limited resources, but it upsets me so to see drug addicts get the medical attention they need and be put on expensive government funded programs to help rehabilitation and not care and continuously piss medical dollars away. I'm all for the ones who are trying, but I see more and more not give and shit and abuse the program.

I'm gripped 'cause I want to get better, I'm begging to get better, but unless I had an endless income to spend I cannot get the help or insurance I need, due to pre-existing conditions, I don't so I've been on a wait list since October just to have two appointments with a public case worker for them to tell me they are leaving, now I'm shoved back into a wait list system. Crumbs to all those suffering from mental illnesses and can't get the help they deserve like me. —Helpless Haligonian
