Harping on about health care again... and questions.

Well, I'm on the continued adventure of the US health care system for a back injury. So far I've paid out of pocket for physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and other things... over 6 months....

Re: San Fran People: which neigbourhood and why?

Pacific Heights, around California and Fillmore. Parks, shops, bars, bus lines. Rents have gone through the roof though. Those of us who moved here well before the madness are hanging on to our...

Re: F-ing health insurance in this country!!!

An update on my health: my KP bills are paid and I found a wonderful private practitioner near me who is helping me greatly -- she's pricey but worth it. So today is a great day. Seems like it's been...

Re: F-ing health insurance in this country!!!

Yes, I needed (and still need) physical therapy. Kaiser is not able to tell you the final cost up front. Thus there are hidden costs. When you are sick and desperate you are vulnerable. You will go...

F-ing health insurance in this country!!!

Sorry, but I have to have a rant here or I'll explode or book a ticket to England and leave forever (if only I was well enough!)

Hooray! Christmas is OVER!

No more pressure to feel happy or make up things to do for Christmas, so I have something to tell people -- rather than just have a nice relaxing day. No more having to explain, or rather not bother...

Re: Should I stay or should I go?

BTW, I'm from West Sussex too, and would move there if I was moving back! Hoping to do an extended stay in the next year or two... since I think I would miss San Francisco.

Re: Should I stay or should I go?

Re: Telecommuting and UK / US taxes

sallysimmons, I am thinking of doing exactly that -- keeping my US clients and trying a stint in England. Would you mind sharing the name of the company that will help file your taxes?

Travelling with two passports

I have done a search for this question, as I'm sure I'm not the first, but couldn't find anything...

Re: It really just happened to me

At Starbucks I can't order a "tall" latte, or I'll get two.
