I have always tried to post positively on here-- but I feel really annoyed and disgusted today. I know how fortunate I am to get the treatment I receive from my consultant , and specialist nurses and the appointment and admin team- they are all brilliant. I have been struggling of late after having to come off mthx and as I have started to get carple tunnel symptoms back I rang the helpline this morning. I spoke to the nurse who said that there wasn't a clinic today but if I went between 12 and 2 she would find a room to examine me. She did this and as I have a higher das score than I've ever had, she gave me a steroid injection.
On my way out o was saying how lucky I felt and how grateful I was. She replied---
"" I wish everyone felt like that---- we had 34 patients who didnt attend for consultant appointments last month - and 42 failed to show for blood tests. """"
Isn't that disgusting? ????
