    I admire you taking such a positive outlook after such a horrid couple of weeks Anne! The NHS does do a lot for us but sometimes you just have to stand up and fight for more. It’s not quite comparable, but a few years ago I tried to get help for my anxiety and after just three sessions with a psychologist was told it was probably just stress and she had more important cases to treat with her time. You can either feel deflated, or push on when you believe you need the help and that’s exactly what you’ve done for your daughter. Thank you so much for sharing! #WotW

      I’m sorry to hear that Emma. I do agree the NHS is brilliant but there are issues and it’s a shame that patients have to fight for treatment. Mental health seems really lacking in help, you can get pushed around in circles and it’s no wonder the suicide rate is so high.xx

    I’m sorry to hear that you and your daughter have both been poorly and that you had to fight to make sure you were listened to in A&E. Glad you have managed to get that appointment with the specialist brought forward and hope that seeing them will help. Hope next week is a better one for you x #WotW

    It annoys me when hospitals/Drs try and fob you off. Good on you for banging the table, sometimes it just needs to be done. Hope your daughter feels better soon xxx

    Aww! Bless you! It sounds like you have had a rough week. Your poor daughter too. That is great she is getting seen so soon. It is awful how the hospital find it so easy to fob you off. I hope she feels better soon, you too. x

    Oh Anne my heart goes out to you, I find anyone who is not a diabetes specialist is useless for Jack and my GP is not even worth seeing for a diabetes issue as they have not got a clue. We are so lucky through that our diabetes team are outstanding and will move mountains for you. I so hope you get it sorted and you are feeling better sending love x

      I’m glad you have a great diabetes team, that must be a relief. We have three members with unconventional issues and unless we are seeing a specialist it’s hopeless. Thanks x

    I am full of admiration at the way you stuck to your guns. Go you. So glad it seems to have put you and your daughter on a path that looks hopeful too. Sorry you’ve had a bad few weeks. I could easily have used the word moody last week. I’m sure the season change is hitting everyone hard. I hope the appointment happens soon and you have a better week.
