"collapsed weakness in legs"

About: Worthing Hospital

Was brought in by ambulance due to legs given way due to weakness. Very upset when one nurse said to her colleague in front of me i need to tell you about her. When i told other nurse she smiled and said there are a lot of hers in here. Then later on the same nurse said to me now your being silly throwing yourself back you could fall on me and hurt my back. I replied i am not putting on a performance this happens at home when i am on my own. Fed up with people assuming because i have bachhround of trauma that i am putting it on. I know it is a very busy department with lots of emergency. I think being respectful is very important regardless of the circumstances.
