Having been referred myself to St Thomas'... now on second appointment next month, back to where I was originally treated in 1989 for multiple clots, and also where I had all three children safely, on 'fragmin'. Now my daughter, 14 is being referred, alongside me for her daily migraine.... should my son's 15 month and 4 day migraine come back, so will he. This has been brought about by a listening GP.... and my care is getting better. The damage was done when moving rurally into the catchment of a diabolical GP practice, 10 years back, where, nobody was allowed to change. However the Chief Executive at the time was not very thrilled with the idea of my film making friend making a film of myself hitching to hospital for emergency care for very visible out of control infections. Yes I did used to hitch.. 18 miles. and no it is not a good idea, but I had no choice at the time. On offering to make the film and deliver it to all news channels with short preview, I did suddenly a few years back receive my choice of GP practice 10 miles away by the following morning - funny that! I have psoriatic arthropathy, psoriarsis and hughes and sjgroens.
So things are gradually being repaired... stress and rubbish that our family should not have been exposed to... due to a neglectful attitude by the those earning huge non medical salaries.
I also found out that I have low cortisol and hypothryroidism... I start work with the practitioner this week.
My new GP practice where I have accessed care now for a number of years have gradually got the hang of my list of endless conditions.... and with the help of a private diagnosis by Professor Hughes.... things are all being ironed out.
I would do an over excited dance, but currently too tired zzzzzzzzzz etc.
