Anonymous asked: What are you taking medication for? Are meds expensive in Sweden?
I realized this question would come, but I’d prefer to keep my medical history fairly private. When I do mention my health from time to time, it’s just to have some sort of outlet.
Here’s a pretty good explanation of how things work in Sweden:
"The state subsidises, i.e. provides financial support, when you need medicines and some other products you may need if you have certain diseases. Most medicines that are prescribed are subsidised. The subsidy is described in the Act on Pharmaceutical Benefits. The high-cost protection provided by the law is known in everyday speech as the “high-cost ceiling”."
This means that the individual person pays a maximum amount of 2,200 SEK (About $320) each year. Spread out over the year it isn’t all that much, but when you lack a source of steady income it still makes a pretty large dent in your pocket (especially when you need to pay a lot at once). And, well, I wish I didn’t need it.
I think Sweden’s system is great compared to what it could have been, though. This is exactly what people’s tax money should go to - so that everyone can afford medical attention.
When you show someone your pharmacy bill and they assume it’s the receipt from a fancy restaurant.
Nope, just me being sick.

29. Have any of your ex’s told you they regret breaking up?
49. Have you done anything recently that you hope nobody finds out about?
Haven’t we all? I am generally fairly secretive about many things, even when there isn’t a reason to be.
76. What colour is your underwear?
Black as night.
146. Was today a good day?
It’s only just begun, but so far it seems to be turning out alright.
My current meds are making me super energetic, waking me up at 7 am sharp regardless of what I’m going to do that day. I must say that it’s a pleasant side effect (although I’m already pretty restless as it is).
There’s going to be people from national television filming and making interviews at work today, so my colleague and I are meeting a few hours early to tidy up. I wish my hair wasn’t a mess. Oh well.
