Following on from last nights post here, I felt rather shaky and indecisive and decided to ask DH for help…..after tears and shouting (on my part, may I hasten to add), he made ‘phone calls and enquiries and helped me to come up with a workable decision. This is part of the email he sent me later (he’s on the ground floor in the study, I’m on the second floor in DD’s old room) which goes to show what a splendid carer he is and how well he can make situations that I struggle with more logical.
“So it is now time to stop the agony of indecision and return the letter with the box to stay on waiting list ticked. I personally just think NHS management trying it on as usual, in the hope some people will contact MIND, be offered help and then ask for non required referral from them, and lose their NHS treatment right for that referral. From what Dr S said when she referred you about trying “pot luck”, I don’t think she would be impressed by you being discharged back to her care when she had hoped the hospital would treat you. In any case you have a right to treatment, even if you are made to wait, and the condition with regard to holidays is getting gradually worse over last couple of years, after slowly getting much better when you came out of hospital, until after Cotswold holiday.”
