I have lupus and self manage however sometimes I just can't as I go into crisis mode as lung pain, breathing and chest all just don't function and I'm in chronic pain.
It was last February 2015 a Saturday night and it hit like ton of bricks as I had felt weird all that day. So after trying myself to control pain, get comfy in bed to sleep. I was forced to phone NHS 24. They sent an ambulance and luckily I had slipped on a pair of pants, socks and cardigan whilst waiting for them to come. Anyhow I was taken to ayr a and e and honestly can't complain about that as I was treated well and admitted to a ward after all night in a and e ( about 6. 00 a. m) offered tea and seen by a doctor again about 8 or 9. 00 o'clock in the morning. I hadn't had a wink of sleep and nurse asked who I had at home! Nobody and I had no purse or money lying in house for a taxi! So she went and got me the bus pass! I thought she was joking and said to her are you kidding it's cold out there and damp and she said I'll give you a blanket! So that's how I left ayr hospital knickers nightie and NHS blanket over my shoulders to. get on two buses to get home and walked on ayr high Street when changing buses! On a Sunday morning around 10. 00 or 11. 00... Luckily I had knickers and socks on. 🌟 I wrote letter of complaint and got a phone call as I threatened to do am action replay and photoshoot for newspapers. I am 58 years old and female!
