punkfolkrocker BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2456* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 30 Jun 21

I'm clearing out my mum's house now that she's in a care home.

Bookcases are full of reader's digest and similar populist medical textbooks.
Plus thick encyclopaedias of medications..

All this confirms my suspicions such a superficial grasp of this kind of knowledge
fueled and exacerbated my sister's mental health problems..

She started as a fairly normal teenager training for st John's ambulance certificates..

But problems started to become apparent in her later teens.

She could very expertly pull the wool over the eyes of examining doctors and specialists,
by feigning the correct symptoms they needed to observe for diagnosis.

She became a very crafty hypochondriac,
suffering all kinds of rare and trendy conditions.

This provided her status and power in online self-help and therapy groups.

At worse I believe she developed Munchausen syndrome.
All her pets suffered rare and exotic illnesses needing very expensive veterinary treatment, which he could document in log books and online diaries.

Again providing her with elite expert status in online forums for vulnerable health obsessives.

I'm quite certain she also controlled and abused my mother's life with emergency call outs to ambulances,
for what my sister diagnosed as strokes while my mother was asleep.
My sister being the only witness, giving medical teams articulate descriptions of the textbook symptoms..

There's far more to this story than I divulge now..

For these reasons I am also very wary of self-appointed amateur medical specialists...

No back to British politics and taking the piss out of brexiteers...
