I have just watched an interview on GB News about brain tumours. They interviewed an adult woman who had a brain tumour; I am very sorry for her.
She said that she could not have anyone with her and oh dear. She was an adult woman. I went through a battery of CT scans (MRI did not exist) when I was just 13 and I was in on my own. It was very noisy and I was scared.
I started having bad fits when I was 13 whilst on holiday in Corfu and when I was home, Mum took me to the hospital constantly.
That lasted three long years with so many fits and it was only when I was 16, did they actually find the tumour on the CT scans. I was told that I was going to die without the operation, without my parents there. 16 in those days was young and I did not realise the impact of what was going to happen.
When my mother found out when she visited that night with my “father”, she immediately tore lots of strips off of the doctors.
I had a 50:50 chance of getting off of the slab.
Get a life; I do not have one
My Mum gave birth to me on my own and I had to endure the fact that I could die on my own too
