I am quite new to this group. I have an endemertiosis diagnosis and awaiting a hysterectomy however due to the COVID-19 this has been cancelled.
I joined this group for support, help and tips on how to deal with my symptoms. I have noticed a lot of negativity towards the NHS in recent posts. This makes me upset an an A&E front line nurse. I understand people are frustrated an treatment, procedures and specialist appointments have been cancelled. My pain can be excruciating also, I can feel down and fed up.
However the NHS have not cancelled appointments for the fun of it. They are trying to keep up safe. Seeing Covid positive patients makes this all real. I understand A&E may not be able to give you rapid treatment for your chronic condition at the moment but please try to see the bigger picture. People are dying and many of my colleagues are very sick.
I am sorry for the rant but would like to see more positive comments and uplifting support and advice. As we are all going through this and negativity will only make it work.
Stay safe and look after yourselves ✌️ (peace). Xx
