Pope reappears after surgery, backs free universal health care

I’m gonna be that guy and say, as terrible as your situation is, it’s not really an example of “the system” keeping you sick. It turns out that God/evolution have really designed our physiology pretty well, and when we mess with that physiology (surgeries, medications, etc.) it throws the whole system out of whack. When your thyroid was removed you needed Synthroid to function, but taking Synthroid everyday isn’t the same as your thyroids meticulous management of thyroid hormone, which causes side effects, which have to be further managed. I agree it sucks the cost of these drugs are steep, but no one is scheming to “keep you sick.” If you didn’t take Synthroid, you’d be extremely sick, and taking Synthroid is not a perfect replacement for your thyroid, which causes issues.
