"Me being celiac"

About: Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary / Paediatrics

(as the patient),

When I was six years old I was diagnosed with celiac disease and at first I had no idea what to do but now me being eight years old I am great at it! I started with a nice doctor called Dr Gashout and he was very helpful because he knew how to do all the things that we needed done like my bloods. But when I was seven he left so the next time I got my bloods done I had another doctor and he was also good but I only saw him once or twice. The last time I got my bloods done on at the begining of March 2020 I had another doctor. Someone who has always been in my life is Avril who does my height and weight but now she also does bloods now! the time she told me it is alright to be a little bit stressed so she is always going to be there for me in life so on that day she gave me some cream to put on before the next time I get my bloods done I put it on and it will lower the pain down. I learnt one thing from her “Don’t be “scared”

Hello Cheeky Monkey,

I also wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely feedback. I know that your kind words will make the team smile.

It sounds like you have been very brave when you were getting your bloods done, well done.

Take care
