Since I can remember I’ve always been outspoken and always stood up for something or someone I believe in. If I think something isn’t right God help you as I’ll do my utmost to make the situation right!
Since having the boys I’ve had a fire in my belly when they are palmed off or someone tries passing the buck.
I hold grudges like you wouldn’t believe and if something isn’t resolved I’ll make it my life’s worth to make sure it is!
A few weeks ago I referred Teddie to the emotional wellbeing and mental health service for his extreme anxiety issue! Yesterday I got this response. (See letter)
Are you f*****g taking the piss was my response to the poor lady on the other end of the phone! Seek out support and advice from Teddie’s health visitor!! I’m not getting Teddie weighed or need help with minor things, he’s ASD and has extreme anxieties that affect his daily life.
Do you honestly not think we have exhausted all other avenues before seeking out your help.
Don’t insult mine or other professional intelligence by telling me to seek help from an unqualified (in this area) health visitor!
Had they worded it, seek out help from a specialist health visitor I wouldn’t have lost it as much as I did but still, we have just seen 2 specialist health visitors who both suggested this referral!
After losing my shit with the very helpful lady Teddie has now been taking on as a patient -unless I hear otherwise but she’s very confidant Teddie will definitely be seen.
It shouldn’t take a parent having a fit over the phone to get our children appointment’s they really need! Children are being turned away before they are even assessed, this is wrong and needs to stop!
Not every parent is like me, they receive their letter and just leave it at that.
I will always fight for what I believe in especially when it comes to my children & I’ll be Teddie’s voice until he can be heard!
Don’t mess with a Mumma Bear!
