OMG I had a call from my local Headway, Lisa, she was amazing, I have my first follow up at hospital tomorrow, no idea what to expect and she gave me a list of demands to make to make my recovery faster and easier. The next day I have the doctors and a discussion if I am ready to go back to work, she gave me a list of questions to ask and support to ask for, your local headway can change your mood, it was amazing, sat here feeling sorry for myself, she calls, not rushing to get me off the phone, listened to me rambling and 45 minutes later I was loaded with stufff to take to social services, CAB, my hospital appointment tomorrow and docs the day after, I am on a high, she told me what I need to make a difference to my recovery. The hospital discharged me by saying, ok you can go, pick up your medication down stairs, Lisa was like what a proper discharge should be like, she questioned everything and advised me on the care needed to speed up my recovery. she asked me loads of really vital things, stuff I might not have considered but it is really important. I would say to anyone recently discharged, do not hesitate, make sure you are not thrown out of hospital, the care you are entitled to is not always told to you.
