Crikey stretchy silver – what a terrible place to be and I don’t just mean in the literal sense but with regard to the progression of treatment (or mis-treatment). Although I haven’t had such a terrifying experience (because I can imagine how it must have been, by how you describe it, being locked up) but I have had a pulmonary embolism which drastically affects your breathing, so from that experience I can empathise with how you must have felt.
It’s bad enough no-one taking you seriously whilst suffering from all this, without them also trying to rob you of your integrity and dignity. In fact, one of my son’s nicknames for me is ‘in-valid’ because of the way I’ve been disbelieved and treated with disdain by the NHS.
I do know what you mean regarding NHS treatment, I too am from the UK and have had to pay several private hospitals and institutes for private testing (indeed I’ve had to remortgage my house to pay for it all – I stopped counting at £40,000, it got too depressing!)
