Our Health Care System has failed my Mom
Tue Apr 27 2021
My mom has been suffering from an undiagnosed autoimmune disease for well over a year. She hasn’t been sick a day in her life now that she needs our health care it has failed her. She suffers from extreme fatigue, weight loss, back pain, memory loss, incontinence, weakness in knees and legs which leads to falls. Her quality of life has gone from extremely active and vibrant to frail and questionable as to how long she will last. She’s only 72. There is no sense of urgency.... she spent a month in Peterborough Hospital received 3 MRIs and 2 spinal taps with no answers. She is now home waiting for biopsy. I’m afraid that it’s going to be too late before we have any answers. It’s very frustrating to say the least.
