    Ok so we have had to get a new life insurance policy, everything was going great
    but i recived a letter this morning asking for more details on my medical history, so i thought right that will either be my depression or they don't know what Obstetric cholestasis is

    No nothing like that i quote from letter
    "We note from your medical records that you had hearing loss and grommets inserted in 1984. Please tell us if this has had any long term effects"

    What the hell is that about ????
    bloody grommets!!!! I WAS 6
    Like i am gonna kark it from having grommets in at 6!!!!

    Sorry had to get this out as i am sat here in amazement at this mega waste of paper, time and effort

    LMAO! :rofl:

    It took us nearly a year to sort out our life insurance because of my shocking medical history which included things like ear syringing and tonsillitis.

    I'd reply and say "yeah it had some long term effect. I can bloomin well hear properly now!!"

    ha ha I had gromets as a child, what a stupid thing to ask about.

    What insurance company is this? name and shame them, Ihad my policy affected before from my spine operation, where they sharged me a bit more, and said if Idied as a result of anything to do with my back I would not be covered. But now I have an excellent policy with Norwich Union and they dont have any stiputaions about it. Plus they are bloody cheap!
