Introduce myself - Raquel from Brazil

Postby Raka » Tue Apr 27, 2010 7:41 am

Hello All

My name is Raquel, I would like to tell my story, I found out I have ME last year at Xmas time, but I started to feel some symptoms 4 years ago, I found a job in China and I moved there to live and work and started to find a few things strange with myself, like no balance, go to the toilet all time, but I thought maybe is because I'm in a such different culture, end of last year I went to Australia to visit my brother and I had a bad ME crisis, end up in the hospital, it was when they detected I have ME, better go back home, Brazil to start to treat it, but unfortunately it is not easy to treat it here as the government has a agreement with the population to supply the medicine to ME, but I'm already request it 3 months ago but until now, nothing!!!!

Hi there

Are you from Taiwan, right? I was living in Shanghai, I havent been in Taiwan. I have a question; does China offer the medicine for ME? I was living and working in China, and I had the crisis in my holiday in Australia and I felt completely insecure to come back to China as I had no idea if I could get treatment there.

Thank for your reply :)

raka: China and Taiwan are 2 different (and opposed governments). I went to Shanghai (and other places) a long while ago; when I wasn't sick yet.

In Taiwan; we have whatever US FDA approves; as the National Health System rely on them for guideline.

I assume PRC (China) having most of available medication but I cannot tell about their insurance system; or even if it is available.

My sis-in-law is living there so next time she come I'll ask her.

Cheers!
