They say many stroke patients get depressed after their strokes, particularly if they are younger. As someone comfortably in their mid-30′s, I’d like to suggest a seriously contributing factor which the NHS could have a think about remedying:
I called to check. This is indeed how they refer to the Stroke Clinic.
Shoot me now?
Still… if i was indeed “elderly”, do you think I’d not have noticed that this can’t possibly be a reminder because they definitely hadn’t told me about it yet? I know because I called them this morning to ask when it was. Also, would I have noticed that they hadn’t even given me a clue about where to go?!
How old is elderly anyway? And will I get a State Pension to go with my revised status?
