Dear readers and subscribers it appears to be Thursday once again. I hope that you are all ok and as well as you can be.I’ve had a pretty busy week having a telephone consultation with my respitory consultant, blood tests and talking to my GP.
For covid survivors I’m one of the lucky ones. I have a doctor that listens to me and echoes mine and my consultants concerns. This is a rarity though.
Why is this a rarity you might ask, everyone should be treated this way. The sad reality is that they aren’t.Helping a patient with Covid 19 is extremely hard because they’re dealing with the unknown. Covid also presents itself differently with each and every person that catches it.
There isn’t any real ‘normal’ symptoms with Covid 19 because of this.For me, covid hit my lungs pretty hard, most likely because I already had mild asthma.
Covid likes to find a person’s weak point and attack there.
For other people they can get more neurological symptoms and not the classic symptoms. For them getting help is extremely hard.
Like my doctor said, so many doctors haven’t got a clue about how to deal with it unless they’ve had the time to research it themselves. I can imagine that finding the time to do this would be hard for them.
This leaves us with a massive problem though. Thousands of people with long covid symptoms are being ignored,some are being told that there’s nothing that can be done for them when that’s not true.
I was both unlucky and lucky enough to be admitted into hospital and this fast tracked me to the follow up care that I need. This is why I consider myself lucky in this respect.
But still thousands of people that are suffering with delibatating symptoms are being ignored, left on their own with no support at all.
Every covid survivor deserves to be listened to and to have their symptoms investigated. It’s vital that this happens. The fact that it isn’t happening is a complete travesty.
Then we have the families of loved ones that have died from Covid 19.They’re not being listened to at all.
The government is so far refusing to meet with them to discuss their needs and concerns.
Why the government refuse to meet them is unknown as of yet, but I do believe that they’re avoiding any contact with the public but my be is that they don’t want anyone challenging their extremely bad decisions
.Also add into the mix the farcical second lockdown. This lockdown won’t be successful because schools are still open etc. Unbelievable isn’t it.
We’ve also as a result of this got the real possibility of a lockdown over the Christmas period. To be honest I don’t mind this because we need to get this virus under control but so many people will suffer as a result of this possible decision.
Basically the government has done what it does best… Mess everything up, ignore the public and walk away.
This leaves the public to do the best that they can with very few resources if any.We are facing very bleak times and are going to do this with little or no Government help and it’s extremely worrying.
We have thousands of people that will be facing destitution in the coming months and they need help and representation.
We then have the terrible decision to remove Jeremy Corbyn from his position. They then allowed him to return but without the whip.
This is exactly what we don’t need at the moment. Jeremy deserves to be given the whip etc back.
The labour party should be united to fight the Tories against their terrible decisions that they’re making about the pandemic etc.
Instead it’s divided the party and members are leaving. Would it be too much to ask for some real united opposition?Can they please stop this witch hunt and focus on the government’s faults instead?
I urge them to think about this.
Thousands of people have died as a result of contracting covid and their families need help and support.
Thousands of people are ill with Covid and they need support.Thousands of people suffering from long covid need support.
They all need this support to come from the government’s opposition.We need this now.
I’m eight months into my long covid battle and it’s been awful. I’m trying to keep strong and fight back but it’s hard at times.
I don’t think that I could have done it without the help and support from my online friends
.For those without this online support it can and is a very dark and lonely place to be. Please spare a thought for them.
I’m going to end it there because I have to go and collect my meds.
Please keep safe you are important and I do care about you all.
Please read, share, tweet and email my blog.
I don’t get any funding for anything that you do.
Having covid has put an enormous strain on my finances.
For anyone that would like to donate there’s a donate button at the top and side of this blog.
Thank you to everyone that reads and supports my blog and campaign.
