I am 41, have two children, one is 23, and the other just 6. I can’t take my son to school in mornings, as can’t manage. Most days I can collect him, as school is just around the corner, but it’s a long path, so I struggle with my crutches. I get taxis to anywhere further than my street and school, so have hardly went anywhere in 10 months, that I’ve been on the crutches.
I’ve had chronic sciatica for nearly 7 years. I had an operation in June last year to remove a lump from my left ovary, they also lasered away the lining of my womb. My periods have stopped all together, but the pain I’ve been left in, is horrendous. I’m on a waiting list to to see a specialist.
I don’t think giving these drugs is treating us as patients properly, I feel they should be illegal. I recently read how they stop the brain from renewing synapses, and they effect muscle tissue etc
I have felt my condition deteriorates faster each year. I’m not being treated with something to make me better, I’m being fed drugs that are killing me slowly. They’ve ruined my life, but what’s the alternative? I can’t stand up, without them, never mind walk. My memory is awful, and I get things mixed up all the time.
I can’t take my son to many places, as can’t afford taxis, unless it’s to go to doctors.
It’s a very scary future. My son is scared, and that upsets me. A 6 year old telling me, he doesn’t want me to die.
I was never told about any of this, I’m angry 😡
Is anyone else going through the same? Is there any alternative?
