Hi it it difficult to hear , I have stage 3 COPD and my FEV is 35%, everything is difficult. I am a widow, with an adult schizophrenic son who my family ignore, so I know how difficulties feel.

What I do every day is thank heavens I am still alive, so I am able to be there for my only child and volunteer for a local charity. The flip side is if I indulge myself.....i can easily talk myself into going to switzerland. I do feel for you but be as positive as you can be and just assert yourself to both doctor and nurses because after all its you who keeps them in a job and the public pay their wages.

Hi Cheers Is difficult BUT is lies doctors come out with.

And thats one of my pet hates being lied to.

Esp when you have organizations take the mick out of you threw gp lack of information.

I was reading leg swelling could be medical emergency YET my doctor have done nout to see what cause is given lung condition.

Is so easy to let things get to you and do try so much not to let em

BUT shoddy treatment is not going to be my down fall.

Well change doctor, or make a complaint to you health trust's Medical Director as well as go to your MP. It took me 17 years to get my son diagnosed.....and even now I have battles all the time.

And yes a swollen leg could be an emergency, so get yourself to a & E with a packed lunch, ipod and book.

Good luck

Thanks Graham,

I only bared my soul to try and say that continually being negative harms you and in the end alienate you from the very people that can help.

Thanks for the support.
