My 98 year old mother is being badly let down by the medical profession. She was admitted to hospital, confused and unable to move her legs. The hospital discharged her telling my family that test results were clear and she was safe to be sent home. She was dropped off by ambulance and needed to use the bathroom straight away - I was horrified to see that she couldn't walk with her frame because her right leg was dragging. I called the doctor and he had her readmitted for a knee x-ray (which wasn't done!!) I found out by chance she had a fractured pelvis!!!!

It is a very long story but in essence they discharged a 98 yr old who couldn't even manage to use the bathroom, told us they discharged her because family said 'she always walks that way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' etc. etc.

She is now back in hospital and I had to hunt for her glasses case (which also holds her hearing aids) It turned out the nurse had put them on a box on the wall, which is almost 6ft off the floor and my mum is only 4ft 8in.

There is a lot more to the story but I can't say too much at this minute. It is horrible to think that when a person needs help most they are being treated the way they are. Only today, a mentally ill lady started stripping off, I panicked and told the nurse (who was on the phone) she looked and dismissed me with ' I will see to it in a minute'. I was panicking and raised my hands in the air, saying, ' there are visitors here' It was only at that point that she left the phone, very angrily, and pulled a curtain around the poor soul

Paedophile Scandal in Scotland

Posted by catherine on February 20, 2010 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Scotland is in the grip of a major paedophile scandal which involves a victim who has Down's Syndrome, Hollie Grieg. Hollie's abusers consist of a police officer, a local sheriff, a headmaster, a nurse, a fire officer, married couples etc. Seven other victims of this paedophile ring have been identified. I have decided not to print the names of the abusers here but they are available online (Links at bottom)


Hollie was abused from the age of 6 by her father, Dennis Mackie. After some time of abuse Mackie introduced Hollie to a paedophile ring operating in Aberdeen, Scotland. Hollie endured a decade of abuse at the hands of people who, on the surface were pillars of the community.


In 2000 Hollie told her mother about the abuse and her distraught mother promptly filed a complaint to Grampian police. Grampian police must have been extremely busy because it was decided no action was to be taken - apart from social workers forcibly injecting Hollie and her mother and commiting the mother to a mental asylum. Hollie has been assesed and is found to be a competent and reliable witness and has also undergone medical tests which confirm years of abuse.


The Lord Advocate of Scotland, who was previously Procurator Fiscal for Aberdeen has employed the services of a prominent law firm to place a gagging order on the press! A journalist, Robert Green took up the cause and travelled to Aberdeen but was arrested by Grampian police on 12th Feb. 2010 whilst on his way to hand out flyers. The charge was Breach of the Peace.


There is much, much more to this disturbing cover up by the Scottish Establishment, including the mysterious death of Hollie's uncle in a car fire - a fire in which he suffered a fractured skull, broken ribs and a fractured sternum??!! Prior to the fire her uncle had walked in on Hollie being abused by her father. The dead can't talk!!


Hollies father is the only person who has been interviewed by police and he is currently in hiding in Praia Du Luz, Portugal. If the name rings any bells it is because that is where Madeleine McCann went missing. Hollies mother actually informed the police of his whereabouts when she heard of Madeleine's disappearance.


This scandal brings to mind Operation Ore in Britain and the Franklin Case in America. Operation Ore discovered many prominent politicians were involved in paedophilia but as it was discovered at the same time as the Gulf War broke out Tony Blair declared the information to be a threat to national security and the findings to be locked for 100 years!!!

Apologies To Everyone

I feel I have to apologise for my lack of interaction on the website lately. I am checking the guestbook, forum and new members each day but don't have much time to get back to everyone personally at the minute as my 97 year old mother had a stroke and most of my time is being taken up with sitting with her and running errands etc.

I am extremely pleased with the direction the website is taking and get many lovely (and sad ) emails from folk who have found the site (I can be contacted at [email protected] if anyone wants to chat or generally let off steam about this horrible condition. I am hoping, at some point, to get a survey up and running but it looks like it is going to be a huge task as it will have to dig deep to give a detailed picture of the folk who end up with E.T. I am pretty sure that there has never been a detailed survey carried out before of Essential Tremor but feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Once I have all the questions in place (there will be a lot of them!!!) I intend to run the survey for 1 year to see if I can come up with any similarities between us, apart from it being genetic.

Anyway folk, I am having a very bad day with my tremor. I wakened during the night to go to the bathroom and was so shaky from head to foot that I was banging into the walls. I went back to bed and got up this morning to the same. I have had a lot of trouble navigating the stairs in my home, difficulty with the computer, Hell, even the skin on my face is trembling which is pretty difficult for a gal who puts on make up every day in life. Oh well, it's Halloween - maybe I'll get away with the smudged make up today!!!
