We have made it through another week, and the weekend is in touching distance. Which also means it is time for me weekly diary of a menopausal Mum post where I share the ups and downs of my week.
You will all know the very long battle we have had to get C into education, after being let down due to her illness. You will know she has an offer to study her GCSE’s at a local college.
This week, we had a meeting with the person who has now taken over her education care and EHCP. She is lovely, supportive and understanding. The meeting was going well, when C got teary and then broke down. I finally got her to tell me what was wrong, and it hit home to both me and our support that she has been affected more than we realised.
Although she wants to do her education and mix with others, she is scared and suffering anxiety. I said again she needs counselling and this is now being looked into. We also made the decision to withdraw her college offer and work on a slower and smaller route. Next week she is going into a workshop without me but our support will be there and will be sitting with her all the time. I will write a full post on this as so much information, and I know my other posts have helped.
Last week I shared how I am suffering with pain and what I think is an infection. I had another telephone conversation with extended hours last Friday, and he was shocked I had not seen someone and his words were after the initial telephone appointment, patients who need examinations should by law be offered a face to face appointment.
Monday morning I rang and got another telephone appointment, still refused a face to face appointment for swabs to be taken. The Dr said she knows exactly what is wrong with me, you couldn’t make this up. She put another scan appointment through marked as urgent, and prescribed 6 weeks worth of treatment.
On talking to friends and family, it transpires that this is happening all over including my friends 1 week old granddaughter. If you look on my social media you will see a poll I have started and am going to take this further. As it really is a mater of time before something more serious happens.
