    Note to doctors: Hello? Anybody there?

    It seems that for the most part, good doctors are a thing of the past. If you are a normal person, with only minor usual issues, they understand it and will help you (sometimes). Even specialists of today dont seem to know how to do their job, or know basic medical stuff. Can this be true, or are they just acting like that with us hecause they think the patient is stupid? Where does the issue really lie? Millions of people are diagnosed wwith chronic illness every year, and every single time I open a page on facebook or another platform, all I see are chronically ill or indiagnosed people at thier wits end because of the constant miss- treatment by our entire medical community that has failed us all. I am someone who was diagnosed with Dysautonomia, POTS, and now It seems I have MCAS (undiagnosed) but it took me 10 years of agony, being told it was in my head or that I was making it up for attention, and being put into a mental facility, before it was actually diagnosed and I still cant get any doctors to take me seriously about my idiopathic anaphalaxis to most everything. What is going on here? This illness is more common than MS, Parkinsons, and Autism, and yet no one cares about it, and medical schools dont teach about it. Since Covid hit, so many if the long haulers now have autonomic dysfunction/Dysautonomia, POTS and even mast cell diseases, and there are virtually no doctors for it. These people become suicidal, because of the constany suffering and trying to keep themselves alive, while also being harassed, bullied, gaslit, laughed at or even abused by doctors and nurses. It isnt being talk about enough. Why do we need to talk about it? Its not just people with Dysautonomia that get these issues with medical people, its widespread for many health issues now a days, especially for women and POC. It seems to be a combination with health care insurances, not so great medical training, and who knows what else. It has to stop. People are dying when they shouldnt be. People are getting PTSD when they shouldnt have had to, people are commiting suicide because doctors wont sace them or help them. They are crying out for help only to be told they are crazy, while they sit and suffer needlessly. The medical system in the USA is not just broken, its useless. They have failed the people to fill pockets. My biggest question for every doctor out there, how do you sleep at night onowing the pain you are causing? Something to think about. #Doctors #Nurses #Dysautonomia #AutonomicDysfunction #ChronicIllness

    A&E Hospital waiting room #CheckInWithMe

    After a lengthy phone call with my Doctor and a few tears

    I phoned my daughter-in-law and she drove me to my local ish hospital.
    I'm all by myself as Pandemic mode😕
    My doctor thinks my 3 day Migraine from hell with numbness in face neck and arm could be a mini stroke or brain bleed . Yes my neighbours have said all of that already since Saturday.
    It was the first thing I thought of when it happened.

    But he also wants me at my local hospital so they look at me. As no one has seen me to look at me in person . This YEAR.

    The headache clinic WON'T take me on. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️
    Well if this is a migraine n not a stroke they might now.

    So will see what happens.
    Bloods down
    CT scan n stroke dr to be seen

    Wish me luck

    🤯🧡💙😥🤷‍♀️💜

    Huge guilt as NHS nurse #Anxiety #Nurses #COVID19

    This post isn’t about me being anxious about having covid...

    I’m anxious because I’ve had to call off work for the third time in 5 months due to my partner or myself being symptomatic.

    1st time- he had a high fever for two days and sore throat. No testing was available so I was told to stay at home for two weeks.

    2nd time- I had a cough, probably from stopping smoking abruptly, but work insisted I stay home for 48hrs awaiting swab result. Which was negative.

    3rd time- my partner went on a lads camping trip at the weekend (I know...), returned Sunday, we both had D and V Monday. Threw up at work and sent home Monday. Due back tomorrow but partners fever had persisted beyond the sickness and he has been dry coughing all day. So he’s had a test today and I’m again required to stay home.

    I am petrified of being penalised, losing my job and being judged by my co-workers but don’t know what else I can do. I feel like an idiot and incredibly guilty. 😞😞😞😞

    When other nurses are losing their lives....

    My mom is a nurse... and it is hard hearing her talk about how her close and trusted colleagues tested positive for covid-19 and she could also contract it... It is by the grace of God seeing her come home well alive and living although exhausted because... She says the thought of this pandemic is overwhelming and I don't even know how to show her support or best words of encouragement,all I do is pray... Cover her with the blood of Lamb and hope for the best.
