I'm having a moan

Well the sun is shinning, with a clear blue sky its a bit warmer today, gosh it makes a lovely change, but I'm going to have a moan so please excuse me.
During the night I was in severe pain, if there was a scale for pain 1 to 10 it was 11 and half to 12, Vernon (my husband) rang the ambulance and was told they do not come out as it was not life threatening. They said the nurse would ring in about 15 minutes to an hour, that was at 3.15am. The nurse rang at 7.20am, asked a lot of questions of course and would ask the duty GP to ring me. At 7.30am she rang for once luck was on my side, she was not only one of the doctors from my surgery but one of the doctors I have seen in the last couple of weeks. She then made an appointment for me to go to Shepton Community Hospital to see the Duty GP at 10.10am. More luck he was a lovely man and understood everything so now I have special pain killers for when I have severe pain. This is the second bout in 48 hours, I am feeling really washed out and rattling from all the pain killers. Poor Vernon must be feeling very tired and fed up I don't get much sleep at night at best, and he was awake for hours last night.
I am sorry for my moan but how many times do you see on the TV ambulance man/woman attending late night revelers that have drunk themselves into oblivion, yet for someone in need with severe pain and oh boy it was, I got no medical attention...........
Enough of my rant, and sorry to sound off.
I hope you are enjoying this rest bite in the weather and getting your Christmas shopping before it turns cold again, and hope you are keeping well.
In the meantime until you pass this way again take care


  1. Awww Margaret, Oh I am sorry for you, this is a bad situation, can't understand the ambulance not coming out...although with all the Goverment cuts is it any wonder. I hope you can get some sleep and pain relief today, all this has gone on so long, time it was over with, you should also make a complaint about the emergency services just to see why that happened....xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
