Couldn't agree more, CJ. I'm F0 with a 262,000 VL so the likelihood would be that I would sit at the back of a 233,000-strong queue, if DAA's were approved tomorrow. And yes the stigma/politics is a big part of it too...no touchy-feely human-interest stories for the public here.
Very likely years waiting for my condition to worsen sufficiently. Or, I could be "lucky"
and it could suddenly take a turn for the worse, in a shorter period of time. Thing is, if you have, or are given the wherewithall to do otherwise - why would you wait for that eventuality?
