Heard yesterday about the attitude of a medical Consultant who so cruelly and casually dismissed a child with ME....my heart goes out to that child and to her mother. No words can describe the shock, the hurt, the pain when you encounter, as most of us do, the which runs rampant in medicine .
All you can do is pick yourself up and continue fighting. Setbacks can have a terrific slingshot effect, channeling one's despair into action. For when it comes down to it, that Consultant has absolutely no rational basis upon which to defend his actions. Truth is firmly on our side and the brave act of placing the overwhelming biomedical truth of ME down on the table, will just blow his complacency away : that , at least has been my experience, using the formal complaint process, to change things here in Norfolk.
