#OT24x Presentation

Here’s a copy of the presentation I did as part of the 24 hour Virtual Exchange for OTs, based on this blog.

Faith and healing, in which I discuss faith-healing, prayer and Christianity

I recently read this thoughtful blog posts by @latentexistence, in which he documents his on-going faith story, and the challenges he has encountered due to his illness and the efforts of his faith community to heal him.

Firstly, let me say: it is an incredibly brave thing to document stuff about faith in your blog, and I’m really impressed by @latentexistence. Inspired by his example, I’m going to address some similar issues around my own faith.

I was raised as a Christian. We went to church on a weekly basis. During my school years, I went to church and proudly sung in the choir. After school, my faith lapsed. As many young adults do, (and I think it’s a good thing, too) I searched for my own meanings. I explored other faiths. I attended meetings of a wide range of religious groups- from Hare Krishna to Quaker, and I read religious texts and attempted through Gnosis to look for answers to the questions that inspire many in their spiritual search. Who am I? Why are we here? What is the purpose of my life?

I believe that many faiths are able to bring comfort, and help people to find answers to these questions. And I know that a spiritual community can offer support and love to many people. I missed the quiet meditation of prayer and worship, although I still did meditation and relaxation exercises, which I think appeal to the same need we have as humans to have processing time to reflect and recharge.

After the birth of my first child, I started to attend church again. It was largely thanks to my partner’s family, who went weekly to church. When we visited, we went too. We discussed the sense of community at his parent’s church, and agreed to look for a similar community of our own. Our local Anglican church turned out to be friendly, and we started to attend regularly. We soon felt part of the community, and it was fantastic to feel like part of something greater than our own small family. We loved helping out at events, and I loved trying to look in on the elders from the church when I had the chance. In turn, when I became disabled, I was grateful and thankful to receive fantastic support from the community in turn.

But one thing that did bother me, was that some members of the church seemed to be very concerned with “healing” me. When they visited, they often prayed for my healing. Now, I think prayer can be a huge comfort for people. It certainly brings me comfort to pray. I like to get to a point in meditation or prayer where the rest of the world slips away, and I’m content to sit, with my breath, for that brief glimpse of completeness before the world comes back into view and life carries on. But I don’t believe that prayer is an effective way to “get” something, whether that something is spiritual (greater closeness to God), or more mundane, like a new car or physical healing.

I believe that we are all here to pursue our own journey of faith (even atheism is a faith). I do not believe that we are here to impose our own ideas of faith on anyone else.

As a Christian, I believe  my faith means that my (frequently unsuccessful) efforts to live a Christ-like life make me happier than I would be otherwise. But happiness isn’t a straightforward positive mood- far from it. But faith can help me to paddle through the dark times and hope for more positive things to come. Faith can fail, too; there are times when my doubt wins out, and I lose my faith. But, so far, it comes back. But I don’t believe that God does some of the things that I sometimes feel other Christians believe:

  • God doesn’t treat Christians and non-christians differently.
  • Being a Christian doesn’t guarantee you an easier ride through life.
  • Prayer helps- but not always in the way we expect.

I believe that prayer really helped me to get through becoming disabled. It might sound strange to non-believers, but prayer really helped me.

How? If prayer was so helpful, then why weren’t you healed? Why do you still have so many problems?

The way I saw it was this. God didn’t heal my physical problems. Through prayer, I was entering a state which helped me to deal with everything I was going through. Rather than ask for a particular outcome, I prayed for God’s grace to adapt to my changing circumstances. I tried to trust that God knew better than I did about what should happen in my life course.

Actually, I really did feel “healed”. I found the strength to keep going, when it was really hard to do so. I was able to be a good Mum to my kids. I managed to keep my relationship. I didn’t flip out; I calmly went through the stages of becoming disabled without getting angry with life. I was able to laugh, still. I was able to feel joy, still. Okay, I would’ve laughed and been joyful a lot more if I hadn’t been dealing with pain and fatigue. But I would have laughed and felt joyful a lot less if I hadn’t prayed.

Some members of my church seemed to believe that by praying with me they would effect a physical healing. They believed that the Holy Spirit would somehow rearrange my bones, my joints, remove my pain, and this would happen in testament to their faith, or my faith (I was never quite sure which).

  • Now, what kind of God would take away my pain, but not the pain of another person who happened not to have faith? Not the God that I believe in.
  • What kind of God would leave me in pain until I asked in prayer to be brought out of pain? Not the kind of God I believe in.
  • What kind of God would use my agony- and relief from agony- to prove to me He exists? Not the kind of God I believe in.
  • If an all powerful God could take my pain away but chose not to, what would  that say about God’s love?
Faith-healing has been de-bunked by many. I think that Paul McKenna’s recent programme about how he could train someone to use the same tricks that many faith healers use to con their audience was very telling. I was going to post a link, but couldn’t find one on YouTube, I’m afraid.
Faith healing has it’s believers. But they are not a homogenous group with people of faith.
In fact, I wonder if faith healing is more akin with fundamentalism than mainstream religion.
Fundamentalism, of any religion, has at it’s core a belief that the “in-group” has special status, hence will be saved whereas the “out-group” (everyone else) will be excluded (from the afterlife). It isn’t a stretch to realise that fundamentalists can accept the idea that their pain could be relieved by prayer; and those of the non-believers would not.
I am happy to report that for many Christians, including me, this is an abhorrent idea. The overriding message of Christianity is one of love. God’s love for us means He will always help us to find a way through the pain- to give us strength when our strength fails, to provide hope when times are dark. And by that, I mean everybody- we are all equal in His eyes. Since we are all sinners, none of us are better than any others, whether we express faith or not. So how could having faith ever get us special treatment? It couldn’t. That’s what’s so radical about Christianity. It is God’s grace that saves us, nothing that we do, or fail to do, ourselves.
God doesn’t remove the pain that I’m, in any more than neglect to remove the pain of someone with no faith. But the act of prayer provides me with patience and grace to deal with the pain.
Faith has therefore played a part for me in dealing with disability and pain. As a therapist, I am rightly wary of discussing my faith with people I work with, and would never wish to assume that others would benefit from my experience of faith. But Occupational Therapists are perhaps unusual in that the spiritual dimension of people we work with is specifically indicated as an area of occupation we would wish to facilitate, and I wonder what my experience of faith and healing will mean for me, when I eventually return to practice.

Going out? maybe…or maybe not; in which I discuss problems booking out the wheelchair taxi service

Going anywhere is just getting harder and harder. I’ve been using a fantastic alternative travel service (it’s a social enterprise, so I’m praying it will continue through the Social Care mass extinction we are seeing at the  moment). The driver has been able to come to the door, manhandle the wheelchair into the street and brace it as I stagger across on my crutches and get into the chair for the short trip down the hill. Then, they have been leaving me next to the accessible transport vehicle, and going back up to the house to collect my youngest in her car seat. She is so good, most babies wouldn’t stand for it, but she happily goes along with this, gets strapped into the vehicle, then they get me in and strapped up, and away we go. On the way back, we reverse the process.

Well, not any longer. As if things weren’t difficult enough, they have changed management, and re-risk assessed all their clients. I was told that I now require two drivers for each trip. One to take care of me in the wheelchair, and one to carry the baby seat. Apparently, this now has to happen simultaneously. The difficulty is that clearly they don’t have a whole load of drivers sat around all day- they are already booked out on jobs. So it is now even harder to book out the transport that I need.

So this week I was due to go to see my Physiotherapist. I couldn’t go, because the transport company only had one driver available and I needed two.

Just another reason to get brought down by the mundane hassles and constant struggle my life has turned into.

Valentine’s Day- My DLA Story #ombh

People may have read my blog before and may therefore, be familiar with how I became disabled last March/April. So excuse me if this is an old story. To make a long story short, for the benefit of other readers, I developed a problem with the joints in my pelvis which caused excruciating pain. This led to a loss of mobility. I was advised to take weight off my pelvis and side lie as much as possible from the fourth month of pregnancy. Because walking even with crutches became impossible. I was issued with a wheelchair, which I have used since last Spring.

I couldn’t stand up for long enough to make myself food, I couldn’t bend to load or unload the washing machine. I couldn’t tolerate car travel, because going over road bumps jiggled my joints causing agony for days afterwards. I was put on painkillers, which didn’t quite stop me being in lots of pain. But did increase my fatigue, and cause a certain fogginess of cognition. Both work and most of the tasks associated with my parenting role became impossible.

Becoming disabled is a curious process. For me, it was mixed with denial, fear, self-stigma and shame. I hid myself away, in pain, like a wounded animal. I turned on my partner, who had been the person helping me turn over in bed, who had helped me get my pants on each day, who had got me every painkiller and glass of water. I didn’t want to be a burden; I didn’t want our relationship dynamic to change to carer and caree. I was snappy with my child, who was being kind and as understanding as a three year old can be to her pregnant and pained Mum. I didn’t bother phoning friends. If people came to see me, it was great, but it tired me out for so long after each visit that I didn’t seek it out.

I understood that I needed help. I didn’t feel guilty- I work in healthcare– I often help others and consider it evidence of civilization that, in turn, I will be looked after when I need it. A few attempts to get the Social Care I thought I was entitled to didn’t quite work out (I was incorrectly assessed by an unqualified member of staff) but I did get some bits of adaptive OT equipment which helped me enormously. Several of the professionals I worked with advised me that I should think about benefits. Proudly, I resisted this- after all, I didn’t need benefits- I was able to earn my own living.

But the day came when I realized that in order to get a blue badge so that I could park near enough to shops to be able to make it in there, I needed a gateway benefit to confirm my disabled status. I realized that the accessible transport I needed to go anywhere cost money that I didn’t have. My wheelchair (on loan only) needed a cushion, and there were little bits of equipment that were important but that weren’t issued by Social Care. I needed a pedicure every six weeks because I could no longer reach my feet and I was getting in-growing toenails. I couldn’t get many of my clothes on, so had to buy a load of new maternity clothes that would go over my head. I couldn’t bear the cold on my back, so I had the house at a constant balmy 21 degrees. I couldn’t stand to make food, so I had to buy ready meals rather than cook everything from scratch like I always used to. I then had to buy ready meals to feed my daughter, for the same reason. I started to notice what a lot of extra expenses my disability was costing.

So I was brave, I made the decision to apply for DLA. DLA is variously described in the media as an out-of-work benefit, or as a target for scroungers. Actually, fraud rates for this benefit run at 0.5%, and given the complexity and length and humiliating detail of the form it is no great surprise. It is available to disabled people to cover the additional costs involved directly due to disability- such as the ones I detailed above. The benefit is awarded whether or not a person is in work, and in fact many disabled people are only able to work because of the benefit which can help with accessible transport costs, extra equipment, or help in the home so that their energy is reserved for paid work. In order to qualify, you must be disabled for three months before filling out the form, and be predicted to be disabled for six months after the form is filled out.

When I went into the appointment to apply for the benefit, I wasn’t expecting it to be quite as humiliating in the detail I was required to give. Modesty prevents me from sharing with you here, but toileting detail and all the small humiliations that had been kept within my family were aired with a stranger. At this point, I was unable to sit in my wheelchair for more than an hour or so. During the appointment, the pain increased and I became visibly sweaty and uncomfortable. She recognized the extreme pain I was in, and wholeheartedly assured me that we would get this done as quickly as possible. She did help to get to the end of the form, although I was in a lot of pain and didn’t give as full answers to the questions as I could have done were I not suffering so much.

Form completed, it was sent off at the beginning of July. I have to admit, I felt confident- after all, I was genuinely in need. However, the next I heard was three months later (September), when I got the news that my application had been refused on the basis that the assessor thought I would probably not be disabled after six months from submission of the form (i.e. January 2011). I had assessments from my G.P., my Social Worker, the reports from my Home Care team members, all of which supported the assertion that I was likely to remain disabled for some time. But, I accepted the process sometimes produces unexpected decisions, and asked them to look again at the decision. A month after this (October), and they got back in touch to say they had looked at the decision and had decided that I did not meet the criteria because I would not be disabled six months after filling in the form. At this stage, four months after filling in the form, I requested to know what information might be helpful in order to ensure the correct decision was taken when I appealed against the decision they had made. They assured me the reason for the decision was that I would not be disabled on 1st January 2011. I gently disagreed with their analysis of the content of the supporting documentation, which I had copies of on file. I asked what my next step was.

Once the initial decision has been communicated, and the decision has been looked at, the next step is to take the decision to a tribunal. So, I filled in the tribunal request and submitted it, and settled back to find out when the decision would be made. They got in touch with a date for my tribunal hearing. The date was MAY 2011. I made several telephone calls and got the members of my treatment team to do the same, to find out if there was no way to get re-assessed sooner. No, a full 10 months after the original application was the very earliest they could expedite my Tribunal. Let me make this clear; the Tribunal are charged with assessing if my disability was likely to remain in place post January 2011. I had numerous professionals who can attest that this is, indeed, the case. They still will not even consider my decision for a further 5 months. During this time, I am expected to continue to fund my entire range of disability related expenses.

So despite the fact that I have extensive letters on file from all the professionals involved in my care, detailing the effects of my disability on my life, I have no DLA. I cannot walk unaided for more than a couple of steps, I use a wheelchair for every journey outdoors, I have a car (taxed, insured) but I am only able to go out in taxis; despite this, I am still not in receipt of mobility component of DLA. I am in constant pain and unable to dress myself; it’s unsafe for me to shower in the house alone in case of falls; my partner has to get out of bed and get my wheat bag when the pain is too much for me to sleep with; I have to have painkillers brought to me when I wake in screaming agony; I cannot make my children meals, I cannot bathe my baby. Despite all this, I still do not receive Care component DLA. Without DLA as a “gateway” benefit, the services that I require, the re-housing that I need, the help with parking, childcare, taxis etc. are all out of reach. the benefit exists to help plug this gap- the financial cost of disability that is hidden from the able-bodied world. And it is so, so hard to claim.

Which does explain why the level of fraud for this benefit is so extraordinarily low. Why efforts to reduce the number of people in receipt of this benefit are disingenuous at best, discriminatory and damaging at worst. Why all right-minded people should, and will, resist this Government’s attempt to further restrict the life chances of people, like you or me, who happen to be disabled.

Today is Valentine’s Day. Have a heart- listen to the voices of the Broken of Britain campaign, sign this petition, and write to your MP. Explain that any of us can become disabled, that DLA is a disability benefit unrelated to work, and that it is desperately needed by those who are in receipt of it. We’re all in this together, after all.

A Little Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing- in which I discuss Medical Student Syndrome

Dear Reader,

I am generally attempting to take the recent turn of events which resulted in my using a wheelchair with good humour. However, there are circumstances in which it is difficult to be cheerful and polite to people. What follows is an example of one such circumstance, and I hope it is of value to you when you next counsel a friend or, if you are in the helping professions, offer advice.

It relates to something which I will call “Medical Student Syndrome”; I am sure this is not a syndrome which affects medical students alone, but I am sure medical educators would give a number of examples illustrating the point I’m making!

I have a dear friend who also happens to be a medical student. I think she is amazing. She is a Mum, and does a great job with her lovely kids. She works really hard and has completed her education whilst having her kids. She is a kind person, who really feels called to helping others, and is literally putting her money where her mouth is by going back to college as a mature student to study medicine.

She called round to see me the other day. As is sometimes the way, she seemed more appalled by what has happened to me than I am. She behaved as if what has happened to me is tragic, and i hate the ‘tragic-crip’ narrative almost as much as the ‘super-crip’. Sometimes it’s hard for people to understand that although this is kind of new and shocking for them, I’ve been living this for nearly a year. I haven’t exactly made peace with it, but I don’t find my situation tragic. I have a lovely family, I have lots of support, I don’t feel ill so much as injured- I’m in pain but I don’t have flu. I try to be mindful in my daily life and squeeze joy out of the brief periods of activity and the time I get with my kids. Viewing my life as a tragedy disempowers me- assumes I’m not as capable as before. I may be tired, in pain, and not leaping around, but I’m still capable of everything that’s important and I wouldn’t give up my family for the world.

She looked appalled as I told her the result of my recent assessment. But the part which shocked me was when she said

“…but that’s wrong! I’ve just had a lecture in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy- and they were very clear that ‘if you don’t use it, you lose it’! you must get out and about!”

Now, where do I start.

  1. Attending a lecture on something does not make you an expert. It is hard for some very academic and bright people to understand that all their learning may not be sufficient to make a fully balanced and nuanced assessment of a case. That comes with years of learning, academically, or on the job, or with lived experience. It is easy, as a student, to see your latest studied condition everywhere- it is like internet self-diagnosis is for the general population.
  2. Other professions hold skills that are not taught as part of the Medical training. Some people believe that Doctors approach Gods with their learning, understanding and compassion. Some of these people will be your patients, and they will be sorely disappointed with you when they discover you are all too human. Some of these people become Doctors, and I dread to think what happens when they do, but I think that misunderstanding the benefits of the multi-disciplinary approach may be the least of them. When working as part of a treatment team, it may be the unqualified member of staff that the patient has opened up to… It may be the ward domestic that holds the key to understanding this individual. Shock horror, it may be the patient themselves who can inform you of their condition better than any mentor or textbook! Do not assume you are superior to other members of the team just because you are senior.
  3. Some professions actually hold better solutions for an individual than the medical establishment. We’re now approaching heresy, I know. Indulge me, kind medical student. In my case, unless I go for the surgical solution with the terrible long rehab and low chance of ultimate success, it is the PHYSIOTHERAPIST who is the treatment team lead. NOT the doctor.
  4. Without access to the case notes, best not to speculate. I love my friends. And people who know me would describe me as an open book. But what I have done with the health professionals involved that I make every effort to avoid with family and friends is tell them exactly where it hurts, how much it hurts, how long it hurts for, what the recovery period from the pain spikes is, and what that means for my daily activities, this is information I choose to share in the context of relationships that can effect change.
  5. As in Medicine, other professions have specialities with different approaches.My friend was taking the brief introduction to physiotherapy and occupational therapy in neuro-rehabilitation, and applying it to my musculo-skeletal condition. There are completely different approaches to take in this situation.
  6. Be my friend, or my doctor, but don’t try to be both. It is always good to be mindful of boundaries in relationships. If you’re my doctor, then I would be surprised if you invited me to your house socially (even if because of Transference I would quite like to be your friend). If, because of Counter-transference, you want to be my friend, then you should talk to a colleague about it and consider allowing someone else to provide my care. Similarly, if you’re my friend, I would be concerned if you felt you wished to review my medical treatment (even if I do occasionally show you unexpected lumps or bumps!) Give me advice to see my G.P., or even offer to take me there!

Dear Reader I bit my lip and didn’t correct her. I just shrugged my shoulders and we continued the conversation. I’m not worried, because I know she has lots more training ahead. In our NHS, she is likely to have to ask everybody she works with to help her at some point. But we have all met people who became doctors and are now arrogant and unable to see the perspective of the people they set out to treat, or the other people involved in their care. I sincerely hope she doesn’t turn out to be one.

Life Changing Injury; in which I start using the Kubler-Ross ‘Stages of Grief’ Model.

I’ve finally been able to be assessed. Ten months after the start of symptoms, and nine months after beginning to use my wheelchair, I was finally assessed.

It sounds like someone was negligent, but they weren’t. It made perfect sense, they were previously unable to assess the damage to my joints because of the inflammation and the pain it caused. They could see the functional effects of the joint injury, and treated for that.

But this week, I was assessed. The woman who assessed me (a physiotherapist) was great at putting me at my ease, and at delivering the intervention she had to. I was able to trust her to try to push my limits and to explore the range of motion I now have. I even let her assess the symphasis pubis- the centre of all the pain. The results are in, kids, and it’s not pretty.

She tells me that the symphasis pubis has ‘joined up’, but that one side is an inch elevated higher than the other side. This has a knock on effect on all my other joints- the sacro-illiac joints at the back of my pelvis, both hip joints, and the lumbar joints on the spine all show damage. All the associated muscles are wasted. Pain that I experience now extends throughout my pelvic and lumbar region, through both hips and down both thighs. The pain is of different qualities, from the sharp burning pain at the symphasis pubis, to the dull ache I constantly have in the back, to the muscle fatigue I have after even a little activity, to the pain which travels around the whole area. To further complicate matters, she says I have nerve hypersensitivity. This is when the nerves have been signalling pain for so long they don’t remember to switch off. So even if I didn’t have the injury I could be left with the pain.

I can now walk short distances without crutches, in an upright position, provided my pain is managed appropriately. I think I could walk about five metres. When I am having a bad day, when I have overdone it, when my painkillers haven’t kicked in, I can’t walk without my crutches, and I walk stooped over with a waddling gait. And I reckon again, no more than a few metres. My physio. assessed this, and agrees about the limits to what I can do. To leave the house, she insists I use the wheelchair to get down the steep slope to the road, and for any trips out. She would like me to walk only short distances on even, flat ground without crutches. For times that I am sore, to use crutches, and to take them with me on trips out if I plan to get out of the wheelchair for any time. I’m to avoid carrying weight except, when necessary, my baby. I’m to transport her in the sling on stairs so that I have hands for banister and crutch.

She has told me that I can expect my final level of function after rehabilitation to be somewhere between a full-time wheelchair user and a person who can walk short distances outside without crutches. Where I end up on his scale will be determined by my motivation to engage in rehab. (good), the demands on me due to my role as parent (err, good except between 3pm and 6pm), the number of times I travel by road, jiggling my joints around (okay), the amount of healing (REM) sleep I get (surprised me, this one,) and factors which are not predictable (luck- with which I am not particularly blessed, currently).
I have been doing the exercises I was given months ago. I can now do side knee lifts (about fifteen cm, increased from three), and now do thirty reps where once five was a struggle. I can pull my knee up towards my chest (yeah, right- that’s a way off) using only my hand, I no longer need to use a tea-towel. I am walking between the living room and the kitchen without crutches as much as I can. I do my pelvic floor, and lying pelvic tilts.

She has given me a load more exercises to do, to loosen all the muscles and joints much more. I am going to do them religiously. She also gave me really useful advice about the quality of pain I can work through and the type that means I have to stop and rest. My problem is that my pain threshold is high and I am also quite driven- as a result she is more worried about me pushing to too far than not doing enough.

So since then I’ve been reflecting on what this all means, sometimes by talking, sometimes by being alone and sometimes having a little sob. I know that I have to adjust to all this information and this period of adjustment includes working through the Kubler-Ross ‘Stages of Grief’ Model (Denial-Anger-Bargaining-Grief-Acceptance). I think I’m going round it on almost a daily basis. I may be feeling the gamut of emotions, but realistically I think I’ve been pretty stuck in ‘Denial’ for most of the last five months. And I’m probably not out of it yet. I don’t think any of this has actually sunk in.

Disabled people aren’t allowed to be parents, btw; in which I discuss Patient Transport, accessible vehicles, and the lack of child seats in ambulances.

Grrr! I’m afraid this is another problem with the infamous patient transport service..

Now, here’s the thing, I had forgotten I had physio on that day, and I was in charge of my daughter (she’s four). The guys from the ambulance arrived, and announced they’d come to get me for physio. I had been lying on the sofa waiting for the most recent painkillers to kick in- daughter was upstairs using the bathroom. I shouted upstairs to let my daughter know we were going to the hospital for an appointment for Mummy- “Come down here and get your shoes on.”

The ambulance guys looked uncomfortable.

“Are you planning on taking the girl with us?”

I replied, “Yes, she’s my daughter and I’m looking after her today.”

They told me that they wouldn’t be able to take her in the ambulance- they didn’t have a car seat.

“That’s okay, I’ve got one in my car- you can borrow it for the day- it’s in my car and you can fit it in your car seat. I don’t mind if you unload it at the hospital or if you want to keep it in the ambulance.”

“Sorry, we can’t fit your car seat into the ambulance. Health and Safety. We only use our own, but I’m afraid we don’t have any child car seats that fit in the ambulance.”

“Can you take her in a normal seat? I know that taxis can take a child a short distance without a car seat?”

“No, sorry. Health and Safety.”

“Well, I understand that, it’s safer for kids in car seats isn’t it… So what if you’re a parent with a disability? How do you get to the hospital on patient transport with a child?”

“Well, you can’t take them in the ambulance. There’s not really a patient transport thats suitable, to be honest, if you’re in a wheelchair and need an ambulance for transport.”

“Okay, so I have to get to physio, and I have to take my daughter with me. How far can you take me?”

“We can take you to the bottom of the hill…. but you can’t come in the ambulance with your daughter.”

“Okay…”

So, my daughter put her shoes on, and chose her toy to take. The ambulance guys got the wheelchair from the front room, and into the street. I crutched myself down the steps and across the yard, and into the chair. Ambulance guys wheeled me down the hill… and there we said our goodbyes!

The ambulance guys went to their ambulance, I called my local taxi firm. Then, my daughter and I waited at the side of the road. She was very good, and held my hand. I felt anxious and vulnerable to be sitting at the side of the road in a wheelchair, knowing that there was no way to self-propel home. Luckily, part of being a parent is putting on the confident face so that kids know that it’s okay…Mum knows what’s going on.

The taxi arrived shortly after, and the driver helped my daughter into the back seat of the taxi. I crutched myself into the front seat, and they put the chair into the boot. Then the taxi drove me to the hospital.

No harm done, really. I was able to arrange an accessible taxi for the journey home, so didn’t have to use the transport service. I spoke to the transport coordinator, who in contrast to the one I’d spoken to last week was delightful and very apologetic about the situation. it wasn’t their fault- they had no provision to transport parents in wheelchairs with children.

It just seems such a massive assumption to make- that if you’re in a wheelchair, then you can’t possibly have children- or if you do, you can’t be expected to have responsibility to look after them…. what are parents in wheelchairs expected to do? I’m left perplexed that there is no system set up for delivering parents to hospitals with children. I guess it’s just one of the many assumptions my non-wheelchair using self had unconsciously made- that because I often take my child to appointments, that it was something that wouldn’t be much different when using the chair.

Another rethink required then…..

A few examples of how disabled people are treated…in which I discuss a Surprisingly Unsympathetic Obstetrician, and Patient Transport coordinator and operatives.

I have to go to my local Teaching Hospitals Trust to receive physiotherapy from what is variously called “women’s health physio.” or “obstetric physio.” They work with women who are pregnant or who have had a baby in the past year. They’re lovely people, and everything they have done for me has been helpful- and they have managed to keep on the right side of assessing injury/ inflicting pain each time I have been in to see them. I Can’t sing their praises high enough.

However, there are lots of people who have been involved in my care and treatment who have been less than helpful. As I work in healthcare, I am always aware how easy it is to negatively alter someone’s experience of care, for example, through being busy and seeming inattentive (which I have been guilty of before, when under pressure with the dreaded paperwork, to my shame), or when we’re informed by management that what seems like a simple request is, in fact, impossible for us to facilitate (which drives me crazy). This is frustrating for service users. I understand that, because if I wasn’t empathetic, I would be in a different job. However, there is NO SUBSTITUTE FOR LIVED EXPERIENCE, and being on the other side of the arrangement gives me an interesting perspective on how difficulties with service provision can really bum out your average patient / service user. I use the term patient advisedly, because this is the primary quality you are expected to cultivate if you want to receive healthcare services.
Here are my top contenders for people who have treated me with insensitivity, callousness or downright rudeness recently.
1. Surprisingly Unsympathetic Obstetrician.
2. Patient Transport Operative
3. Patient Transport Co-ordinator

1. Surprisingly Unsympathetic Obstetrician
We know that sometimes, doctors can neglect aspects of patient care that other members of the staff team are au fait with. For instance, not inflicting unnecessary pain. (Obviously, all the doctors I have ever worked with would never contemplate such a thing). During my most recent obstetrician appointment, the doctor (having measured the size of my bump, and listened to baby’s heartbeat) decided to check “relation to brim”.
For those folks out there who may not have gone through this process, this is where they check to see how far baby’s head has descended into the pelvis- which is important for the midwife to check towards the end of your pregnancy. Although, baby can sometimes stay well clear of your pelvis until labour is cracking on… so I’m not clear why this is important to do when there are 10 weeks of pregnancy left to go.
Anyway, essentially, to check this, pressure is placed on the top of the front pelvic bone- I guess with training you can tell if what you’re feeling is baby head or just guts. So far, so good, you may imagine. Except, in my case, the joint at the front of my pelvis is inflamed and unstable- so much so, that merely putting weight through my legs separates the joint and causes huge pain.
The doctor has had extensive medical training- there’s always the chance that there’s a clinical reason for what they do which they have decided to not share with the mere patient- but sometimes, it’s as if they haven’t considered the impact of the tests they do, in terms of the trade off between “useful information derived” vs. “pain and mistrust generated”. This particular doctor decided to err on the side of gathering potentially useless information, and pressed hard on the front of my pelvis.
I didn’t scream, but i did whimper and go “OUCH”, so that it was clear to doctor that this was uncomfortable. Doctor finished pressing, and continued with the stream of information and questions” blah blah…. % chance of a vaginal delivery….blah……of, course, incidence of instruments….blah….emergency section….blah blah”etc.
Doctor seemed unaware that I was now seeing stars, and was completely incapable of following simple conversation, never mind being a partner in making decisions about my care. I was doing that silent weeping that has sneaked out when you’re busy concentrating on other things, and big fat tears were dropping off my cheeks onto the floor. Doctor simply asked me to return in 3 weeks and make the decision then.
I spent the next 3 days side lying, on 8 30mg codeine / 500mg paracetamol tablets a day. That’s double my usual dose of codeine- I’m trying to keep it to a minimum to avoid baby being exposed to any unnecessary drugs.

2. Patient Transport Operative.
If you use a wheelchair and you have an appointment in a hospital, you can use the patient transport service, it gets booked through the ward or department where you have your appointment. I was on my way to physio. I hadn’t been on the “patient transport” before; I had simply been using my local alternative transport service. The transport guy arrived and checked out the access (see the post about it for a fuller description). We then got out of the house, across the yard, and I got into the chair to get down the hill. We got down the hill with the minimum of difficulty, then got to the car.

That’s right- they had sent a guy to collect me in a car. I asked if he expected me to get into the car on legs? Yes, he expected me to get out of the chair and into the car. He rolled me up to the front passenger door, and opened it. Yep. It was just your standard car passenger seat. No turning disk. Not even a carrier bag to help to get into the car (don’t knock a carrier bag on the seat- it really is as good as a fancy turning circle at helping you to get into a car!).

I did ask whether he thought this was an appropriate vehicle to transport a wheelchair user in. He agreed that it wasn’t really suitable. Especially because he wasn’t allowed to transport the wheelchair in the car. I wondered what we would do with the chair, once I got out? He shrugged, and suggested he could leave it at the side of the road for when I got home. After all, I could use a hospital chair when I got there. I asked him if he thought it was a good idea for me to leave a borrowed NHS wheelchair at the side of the road? He agreed, it wasn’t ideal, but if he took it up to my house it wouldn’t be there for me to get back up the hill in, after I’d been to hospital.Good point, I thought.

I really had to get to my appointment, so I agreed, we just had to get there, and we could sort out all of this later. I got out of the chair, and there were a fair amount of the sickening cracks I’ve mentioned previously. And I did whimper a bit, and a few hot, fat tears squeezed out without permission.

I got in the car, and attempted to regain some of my usual composure and good humour. Patient transport guy was a little perturbed by this chain of events- I don’t know how he thought this situation would resolve- he seemed genuinely surprised that this was a painful procedure for me. To his credit, he got on the phone to the hospital, and changed my “transport code” (presumably from “nah- she just wants a bit of company” to “yes, she actually is a wheelchair user”), he then folded the wheelchair down and put it in the boot, “you can’t do without this the other end, can you love?”. He was the perfect driver the whole way, and was very sympathetic and sorry for all the trouble. None of it was his fault, he had just been given duff information by the department booking him.

3. Patient Transport Co-ordinator.
After finishing physio, the next step is, apparently, to go to the patient transport coordinator’s hatch, and report you are now ready for transport. This appeals to me, because I’m a bit of a Trekkie. However, as we will learn, it is probably quicker to wait for Scottie to “beam” you home than to go for the patient transport.

Firstly, you give your name. The co-ordinator smiles. Then, you ask when the transport will happen (because, I wondered is there time to get lunch and a decaff.? or is it so quick it’s better to wait until you get home?). Coordinator scoffed at the idea that he would be able to offer me an idea of approximate timing- it’s rare to see a scoff as part of a customer service experience. He smiled, indicating that I did, in fact, have time to get a coffee and a sandwich. I didn’t mind- I’d bought a magazine, I’d brought a book, my smartphone was fully charged for Tweeting….it’s a day out if you haven’t been on the usual social whirl, even if it is just the reception of the local hospital. So, the wait began.

I checked in after each half hour, just to make sure they realised I was there. But here’s the funny thing- more people arrived to get transported to here and there, the waiting area became crowded with elderly, infirm and incapacitated people. But nobody left. And nobody told us why.

I asked the coordinator if today was a normal day, if there were any specific problems with transport today (I must admit, I was concerned that if we were still there in the afternoon when there was a World Cup England football match on, we might very well be stranded for some time). He said “no love, it’s just that lots of people want to come in to the hospital today, so we’re collecting them. And we all have to have our breaks, you know”.

I work in healthcare, and am entitled to breaks by employment legislation. But they are not a priority- if our service users need us, we delay our breaks. Some shifts, we don’t take them, if there isn’t a way to leave the ward safe with a staff member down. However, I do agree that we should value our breaks higher, and make arrangements to ensure we take them at appropriate times every shift- it helps us to deal with a stressful job and prevents burnout- but that’s another story. Suffice it to say that I admired his protection of his staff, whilst slightly miffed that we weren’t prioritised a little more by his service.

So I waited…half an hour…..three quarters…..an hour. I asked if it was likely to take much longer. He laughed….and said it was likely to take a lot longer. Like the earlier scoff, this was an unusual approach to customer service, which would normally involve delivering such bad news with an appropriately sombre expression. But I got the impression that we mattered not a jot to him. After all, it wasn’t just me, there were at least ten of us waiting by now.

I started to feel concerned, I’d left with 3 hours to go before my next painkillers were due- and already 2 hours had passed with an hour’s appointment and an hour’s waiting. In addition, I have a time limit to being in the sitting position- 2 hours in a day is enough- I have to do side lying for the rest of the day. I decided to be upfront about it. “Look” I said “thing is, I can only sit in the chair for 2 hours before I start to get a lot more pain. I didn’t realise I could still be here now. My next painkillers are due in an hour, but they’re at home. Is there any way you can get me home within the next half an hour, please?”

“No love. I can assure you it won’t be within half an hour. It could be 2 hours from now.”

I was stunned. I hadn’t anticipated that it would be considered acceptable to leave someone in reception for 3 hours in a wheelchair, waiting for a lift home. Readers who use a chair or have family who do, may, at this point, scoff in a similar manner to the Transport Coordinator. This is our NHS, after record investment over 12 years. I’m a passionate supporter of the NHS, but at times like these I’m reminded how far below standards of customer service can be within the NHS, compared to what we would expect in the private sector. But I say none of this, just stand there doing a fair impression of a codfish.

I’m starting to panic. The coordinator has got bored with our conversation, and turns round to talk to his colleague about today’s football. I say nothing, realising that’s it, and wheel myself back to my allocated waiting zone like a patient little patient- just like the other ten patient patients waiting there. It must be because I’m new- I just don’t understand the rules. I look around. The people waiting all seem to have accepted this is now their fate, to wait in the hospital reception until someone comes to rescue them. Some are eating, drinking, one man is snoring, and others are just watching the world go by. A woman helpfully asks “are you getting sore in the chair?” I reply “yes”. She nods; it’s obviously an occupational hazard. “I get sore if I’m in the chair for long, too.

I’m so ignorant! I’ve been training, then working all this time- I’ve met countless people in my life and through my work that use wheelchairs. I genuinely didn’t realise what a mundane experience it is to be overlooked in this way. I seemed to be the only person there who was even prepared to question it.

Of course, I managed to find some painkillers in the bottom of my bag, so I was able to take them on time. I now go precisely nowhere without checking I have the next dose with me. My transport turned up after a total wait time of TWO AND A HALF HOURS. I was taken home and total chair time was nearly 4 hours when I arrived back home. Double what is comfortable for me. I spent the next 2 days side lying, but didn’t need as much codeine as after the obstetrician.

Interestingly, if I add up what I spent on a coffee, a sandwich, a drink of juice and a bag of crisps during the wait, I could have spent the money on the alternative transport service and got home without the additional pain. Just saying.
