Medical Licence issues for pilots Facebook group

I hope none of you have to deal with this, but with so many pilots worldwide, some of you definitely have: loosing your medical licence… I’ve permanently lost mine 5 years ago at the age of 32 when I was flying the Boeing 737 out of my base Amsterdam.
