IO my heart breaks at hearing experiences such as that, and words seem so trite.  Such an ordeal is beyond physical pain.

But I can identify with the black humour or inappropriate thoughts - from chatting to others, it appears it's not unusual in the face of unspeakable sadness or tragedy or fear.  Like you say, it's a coping mechanism.

IvyOwl, I just read this. My goodness me Ivy, I am literally stuck for words, which rarely happens. What can I say to express my sorry at such and arduous ordeal. My dog bit me on the nose last year and I thought I was dying. I now feel ashamed at acting so badly at what is a triviality compared to what you went through. I am sincerely sorry to read this and offer you my heart felt sympathy hoping that you can eventually forget the pain that you had to go through, both physically and emotionally.

Kindest and Most Sincere Regards

Derek (aka Ralph)

Glad you're Ok Trent. I've had a couple of episodes  so I know how painful and how frightening it can be.

Fortunately, although on occasion I've been given the hard sell about having my gallbladder removed, they're not a problem:


I was advised to have my gallbladder removed but because of what else was going on in my life I deferred it. Well that plus I wasn't totally convinced. It's been several years since I've had an episode but everytime I get a little niggle I get concerned that it might be another one.

The pain is comparable to giving birth to a dead baby (my first confinement) without the benefit of pain relief stuck on your own in a side ward. I tried ringing the bell but was told 'not to make a fuss'. So I didn't. As the pain got worse and worse I just thought 'you can't live through pain like this' so when the next pain came I thought 'oh good I'm dead now' then when the next came I thought 'bloody hell you feel pain when you're dead !!!!' It didn't occur to me that I was actually still alive ..... eeejit!

Eventually a more senior nurse came in from another ward and went ballistic at their having left me on my own especially once I'd told her that the baby was dead! (She'd said I was ready to push and had positioned herself ready to receive 'it' so I thought I'd better warn her.)

Anyway the whole point of that story was to say that the doctor who came to examine me afterwards was ever so dishy with a gorgeous Irish accent. I felt so guilty for having those sort of thoughts at a time like that!

Apparently it's quite normal ... it's the brains way of making the best of a bad situation

Thank you all for your kind understanding. I went on to lose 6 babies all together (adopted 2 babies in between) but it was all a long time ago and is now just 'history'. There are people who've had to endure far far worse. Mosly without the aid of our wonderful NHS. In spite of the first incident I have nothing but praise for the treatment I received through it all!

When it comes to ultimate pain - whether physical or emotional I don't think there's a weighing scales, but there is certainly a sense of 'there but for the grace of God . . .'.  My experience too of the NHS is that they pull out all the stops and cannot be seriously criticised when it comes to life and death situations.

TV, how was it?  I hope it was fabulous and you're now hoarse from singing.

It was fantastic, of course!

review in local press:

That about covers it - except it missed the fight that broke out 2 rows from us at the end of the concert - which was precipitated by one of the finest putdowns I've heard for many a year.

A female "fan" had been particularly vocal (in a very Nottingham way) for parts of the concert. At the end a man across the aisle from her said in a very loud, clear voice:

"If I'd wanted to hear 2 crackheads screech I'd have gone to forest road*."

Woman slapped him, he pushed her down the stairs of the balcony we were on.

They could have charged more for the floor show.  

* Local red light area.

Thought I'd share because frequently we hear horror stories about the NHS - which undoubtedly happen - but there is loads of good solid professional practice going on.


I've made a formal complaint against my local hospital trust for clinical neglect. Things were fine whilst I was under treatment, but there are no systems to address terminal cancer. The two doctors involved colluded and lied through their teeth that everything was done to help me.  Things got so bad I had to go to my own GP for help and things are fine now.

The chief exec of the trust is both incompetent and lacks in integrity, and instead of him taking a professional  critical stance, has obstructed me at every turn. The inquiry he set up was limp and unquestioning.

I've reported to the General Medical Council and am awaiting o hear if they will initiate their own investigation.  I imagine all involved now regret their behaviour not knowing what an incandescent, bolshy old sod I can be when anyone tries to put one over.
