Afternoon all...well I had to take my 4 year old to the asthma nurse today for her check up. Our asthma nurse is lovely and we know her quite well, so while I was there I told her what had happened at yesterday's appointment. She was horrified! She said with my history (not just the asthma but the damage left by the pneumonia, the fact that I have one lung that isn't at full capacity to start with, and the fact that I have a second chronic condition (ME) he should have been a lot more proactive with my care, and that his behaviour was clearly unacceptable. She said, exactly as I thought, that he was in a bad mood, having a bad day, and I had to suffer for it. Although at least I got the prescription I needed so that's something.
So I now feel slightly vindicated!! And will stop the rant (apologies again, it's not really like me!). But when you compare a nurse's salary to a GP's I feel quite strongly that it shouldn't be left to the nurse to explain all this and to apologise for him!!
