There are a lot of problems with the medical system in America today. I could do my research and write pages on what is wrong and what we could do about. In truth, I am not sure anything would change, with any of the proposed legislation.
Anyways, I have had my own medical battles over the 8 years. Nothing serious, thank God but it has been enough to effect my quality of life and, at times, my marriage.
I have come to find out that a lot of it could of been the result of a pharmaceutical. Now, it is hard to say if that is fact. What I do know is that the issues I have been tackling, have all been listed as possible side effects of this one pharmaceutical.
For a couple days, I was angry (ok, VERY ANGRY). I wanted justice and those years and moments of struggle back.
Now, what I want is the system to change. I think the doctor weren’t informed properly by the company that made the pharmaceutical.
There is a class action lawsuit happening for this particular item. The question is, should I throw my hat in the ring? I don’t expect to get much from it. The nature of class action lawsuits is that no one but the lawyers get rich. I don’t want to get rich. But if the truth isn’t told, then things can’t change.
Is it worth the hassle, though? Would you do it? What are your thoughts on this sort of thing? Are people that participate in these lawsuits part of the problem or part of the solution? Does it make any difference?
