Have you ever required an Ambulance?

I had a ride in one after my car crash.
Plus I had a ride in one when I had an Epileptic Seizure.
That one cost me $863.
I now have Ambulance Cover

Last one was in 2016 when I had a heroin overdose.

[@1390,AwakeningConfession9] Stupid me had a new car with a Catalytic Converter.
Idiot that I was.
I told my work mate and he suggested disconnecting the converter.
I had a look under the car and it all looked too complicated for me so I am still here😂
[@546016,Gusman] lol speaking of fate steering you the other way lol. Even though surviving many attempts in my life, it still scares me that my life will likely end that way one day.

[@1390,AwakeningConfession9] Try not to be scared.
Remember, we will never know we are dead.
Just keep doing as you are doing and life will take care of itself

Just once when I miscarried and almost bled to death. Thankfully we have national health care here. I can't imagine having to first worry about what it will cost before worrying about my own health.

[@1095867,KuroNeko] Ambulance ride saved your life. Sorry about losing your child. Must be so painful to live with.

[@546016,Gusman] Yes I was lucky.

Fuck no. They tried twice but both times I refused the ride.

I have been in an ambulance no cost at point of use and for xrays to check fracture etc got to love as you Americans would call it “being a communist” or as the rest of the world calls having a health service paid for out of taxes rather than expensive insurance costs

Yes. But we've got NHS, so very grateful I didn't have to pay

[@521796,MethDozer] It's the same in France. Sad to have to consider the price of your life or care over basic needs.

[@949508,V00dooCakeNinja] It's sad until you realize how many people vote against anything that will change it. Then it's just stupid.

I lived in a place that had a vote on whether the area should have a town EMT and ambulance department instead of private. It would have meant it was just like fire and police. You'd be shocked how many people were passionately against it.

[@521796,MethDozer] Ouch.

Yes, when I was having very strong contractions in 2017. Then when I arrived the hospital, not even 20minutes I gave birth to my second baby.

[@352154,GunFinger] Yeah to Bub number Two 👶
Yes once when I collapsed unexpectedly

[@1115909,Notladylike] Did it lead to an overnight Hospital Stay?

Only the once, for a car crash
I did when I had a heart attack at work seven years ago.
Yes once but I drove anyway. Yep I was admitted.

Yes, one time after a bad car accident I nearly died from

$863 is pretty cheap actually.

usually a few thousand here, tens of thousands if you have to be airlifted...
