Experienced Patients are not medically trained or otherwise professionally qualified in health-related disciplines. They are not permitted to give advice, particularly medical advice, which may be defined as attempting to diagnose, treat or cure an illness or injury. They may only share information on their own experiences and provide moral support.
Patients should not construe anything which an Experienced Patient says or writes as advice, medical or otherwise. By making an appointment with an Experienced Patient, patients are expressly agreeing to this.
I have an arrangement with Dr Myhill which works like this -
1 - I can refer you to Dr Myhill when we feel the need for more specialist support
2--You book an appointment with Dr Myhill via her NHW profile for, typically, an hour of her time
3--No referral letter is needed from me but I can send brief details
4 --You fill in Dr Myhill’s medical questionnaire and she will produce a management plan.
5—Dr Myhill sends the management plan to me – you should make it clear on the medical questionnaire, or somewhere, that I have referred you. Also, please give my email address to Dr Myhill so that she knows where she should send the plan
6--If any prescription drugs are needed then Dr Myhill can supply them
I have suffered with ME and Fibromyalgia for many years (level: mild to moderate on disabilities scale). I battled away to educate myself, trying to find my own answers with so very little medical help, some of which was detrimental. Thankfully I found Dr Myhill, who “saved me” from my path of unknowingly self-destruction, as I was always trying to do too much and not listening to my body desperately shouting out for help.
I shall always remember a small framed picture in her office with the words “Never, never, never ever give up”. I have had to remind myself of these words, many times over the years when I have been so very challenged and the world feels such a cruel lonely place. My journey has been winding one, getting through those tough days, climbing out of the pot holes I have fallen in to, finding ways around the hurdles and embracing all the challenges along the way. Following Dr Myhill’s advice and guidance, however challenging, I shall continue my journey whatever.
I have read all of Dr Myhill’s and Craig’s books, plus many others to increase my own knowledge base, to try to understand and to help myself.
A challenging illness with many facets, I know can be a lonely difficult place. I will do my best to offer you a helping supporting hand, to assist you through your own journey by sharing my experiences and my pitfalls.
“I am that little drip of water wearing down the big stones on my path ahead”
