It is complicated, getting access to a doctor (let alone a specialist) and an Ontario Health Card in this province.

At this rate, it will be months before I can see a doctor and have my prescriptions set up in this province. Meanwhile, I will have to have my parents mail my meds from home until Ontario recognizes me as a resident (which won’t be for another four months)!

I am healthy now, but what would it be like if I needed medical attention now? I think I would be up the creek.

This is my first free day home in a bit and I feel exhausted. Work is good, and I think I am finally getting adjusted to the pace and to the system, but I come home feeling drained every shift.
