This is what an immigrant that had lived in Sweden for many years had to say about the healthcare system:
"I was left with untreated, chronic encephaltis in Sweden's medical dictatorship. Do you have any idea how fu*cked up it is to be left with untreated encephalitis and what hell this inflicts upon your body?!! I probably would NOT even be alive if I had not fled the country for help - after I was repeatedly denied help in Sweden's garbage Hell Care system. Medical Dicatorship!
While seeking treatments - among numerous arrogant, ignorant things - I was told that my symptoms were a manifestation of being stressed because I was an immigrant in Sweden. I was twice told that I would feel better if I had a baby. One doctor said western women worry too much about education and financial security and that I should think about how women in Africa have babies regardless of these things. It was written in my journal that my symptoms were manifested because I didn't speak good Swedish - this written by a doctor whom I had only ever spoken English with. And the arrogant, bigoted abusive list goes on...
Behavior that is non-Swedish is absolutely considered deviant behavior, and very often, the punishment is torture, kidnapping of children, and death conveniently called health care and social welfare. Someone wrote that Sweden's health care and social welfare agencies reminded them of Orwell's Ministry of Love...
The unchecked, rampant abuses in this system are horrific. How can anyone respect the Nobel Prize in Medicine when it comes from a society that is the very opposite of healing?! .
Sweden most certainly is not what its government would have the world believe."
