"my health visitor"

About: Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Health Visiting

(as the patient),

I have 3 children 1 with disabilities and have struggled with postnatal depression and it go so bad that i didn't want to wake up in a morning. That coupled with the diagnosis of my sons illness and feeling lost, desperate, very lonely and in need of support and a friend I didn't know where to turn.

My health visitor from Seascale Health Centre came to see me and has never really left me. If I need her she is there. She has held my hand while I cried. Helped me fight for my sons rights, I can never ever thank her enough for all she has done for me and our family.

She knows us as a family and has helped me become a good mum who is not frightened to ask for help.

This lady cares with all her heart, nothing is too much trouble, what ever you need, be it an ear a shoulder or advice. She is more than willing to help.

Thank you Karen. You have got us through the hardest years of our lives and we have come out stronger than ever and that it down to you. Thank you. Xx
