Blogging; Day 3. 

My friend violet was my inspiration to begin blogging. She understood I was going through a hard time and told me it was a good way to release my emotions and feelings. I am so glad she introduced me to this little world. Away from people I know who would judge me for every word I say. 

The feedback from you guys is massively appreciated. I feel I have found a perfect place to express myself freely. After 3 days I have 10 followers, it may not sound like a lot but 10 people are interested in my life. My stories. 

This is a blog dedicated to amazing friends. Specifically for me Violet. When you meet someone who does nothing but help you and expect nothing in return keep them. DON’T take advantage of them. I love her so much and value her friendship. The picture attached is some of her photography work as she is extremely talented. 

Thank you for welcoming me into the blogging world. You guys are incredible and I enjoy reading about your lives. 


Letting down patients; the NHS

I have the upmost respect for doctors and nurses all over the world. However my family and I’m sure others around the world are being failed by the system daily. I’m writing this not because I’m angry but simply upset

My uncle has been in hospital now for just over a week. Last night they didn’t even bring any food for him and when we questioned them they said they forgot. They went to get his food which he picked off a specific menu only to be told he couldn’t have it and was given half a sandwich. He is a fussy eater but was told as he is to weak to cut up food and has the shakes he could pick from what is known as ‘the finger food menu’ I.e fish fingers and chips etc. But for 5 days in a row now they have not delivered one of the things he has picked from the options they give to him. 

He is under strict instructions to stay hydrated however they said they had no jugs to put water in today so he couldn’t have one. It wasn’t until we kicked up a fuss that they bought one, considering they said they had no jugs it’s impressive how they managed to get one when something was said. I understand this doesn’t sound like much of an issue but when he is specifically told he needs to keep hydrated you’d think this is a priority to the staff. 

So today they forgot about him again at tea time and simply walked past his room. After patiently waiting for an hour longer than we should have we bought it too their attention. The picture attached is what he was given.. Bare in mind he is a fully grown man.. I wouldn’t give this lunch to a five year old. I’m not one to complain but when he is so ill and this is the place that is supposed to look after him it frustrates me.

We as a family have to put our faith in the hospitals to take care of him as this is the best place for him. As we have been told several times but how are we expected to sleep at night knowing he is being somewhat neglected? 

Please do not think that I do not respect doctors and nurses and the work they do because I do. It’s just sometimes what is seen as a little issue to them can be seen as a major issue to us. 

Racism and the 21st century

It’s so sad that the world we live in racism still exists. I’ve just witnessed a video of two youths on a tram in Manchester today hurling abuse at a middle aged man stating that he is ‘nothing but an immigrant’ who should ‘go back to his own country’ the man calmly stated that he had lived here all his life which is well before the young individuals were born. This however did not stop them on their campaign of hate where they began to throw bottles of beer at him. The thing that saddens me the most is the 30 or so bystanders said nothing. They simply stud and filmed where one individual was being victimised. How are we supposed to promote equality and peace when individuals will happily stand by and film others being physically and verbally abused? It saddens me that in the future my children will have to grow up surrounded by hate. I want better for the people of the future and better for the people of now. We are all human. Love and respect costs nothing.
