I have Inclusion Body Myositis, a muscle wasting disease, and yesterday Friday March, I fell in my home in Fife, hurting the back of my head. As my wife was unable to get me up from the floor, she dialled 999 and asked for help.
An ambulance arrived VERY quickly, crewed by two young ladies. They set about their work quietly and efficiently and very soon had me on my feet. They were concerned about my blood pressure and remained with me until I was back to something nearer normal.
I would like to tell the young ladies just how much their help and concern was appreciated by my wife and I. They are a credit to their profession!
