Specialist nurses and being on the news

Posted Aug 24 2008 4:05pm
Again, I must start by apologising for my lack of proper blogging. I'll say again that if you would like to read about my life, go to my other blog where I ramble almost every day on non-epilepsy related matters.

I was on the Scottish news last week, standing by the River Clyde discussing my experiences with specialist nurses. In Scotland there's very limited specialist nurses, and Epilepsy Scotland is calling for the government to rectify this and so: enter Jane! I've always had a specialist nurse, and I had never realised how much I took her for granted until I realised that not everyone has one. Basically if I have a question that I don't think I would necessarily need a doctors appointment for, I phone the nurse and either ask her the question over the phone, or arrange an appointment. Having a specialist nurse is good for asking non-medical questions related to epilepsy, for example methods of birth control, problems in pregnancy and obtaining a drivers license.

As for being on the news: it was vaguely terrifying, but I refused to watch it and therefore I have no idea if I made a fool out of myself or not! If it goes up on the website however, I will put a link up for you all to laugh at how far from eloquent I am.

I'm sure I had something else to talk about, but for the moment I seem to have forgotten what it was. If I remember, I'll be back!
