Found - love and kindness - consideration - being listened to - treated with courtesy and respect - given time to really talk - regular assessments - we were all going to be a team to help me - little sandwiches and tea - yes all really true - and this was the NHS.
I still can hardly believe it - it was so amazing.
Now this was a NHS Falls Clinic - for people who have had a fall, which had an ambulance call out. I wasn't even going to go there, as I had experienced mostly the complete opposite of all those glowing words, but I was advised to go & try it.
One thing is that I had really decided to go the Homeopathic route prior to the Falls Clinic appointment - but if the NHS can support & help - then perhaps - the best of both worlds - I'll keep you posted.
You might wonder how a Falls Clinic would be anything to do with pain management - but what happens to me is that - when I am really in intense pain - my body and mind spin out of control - and I fell & froze & couldn't get up.
I did some gardening today - body hurt - but mind loved the flowers, the earth & sky. All the best everyone.
