"Heartfelt thanks to everyone on Darwen ward"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital / Pendle view inpatient unit

(as the patient),

Heartfelt thanks to everyone and all on Darwen ward.

All my life I have suffered with claustrophobia and just the very thought of entering a lift fills me with dread. I would like to thank Sherrie for her support in helping me overcome my biggest fear and also a special mention for Tara, who supported Sherrie in her efforts to help me, thank you.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the ward staff for their care and support during my stay here. In particular, I would like to single out nursing assistant Lisa for her dedication to patients and there needs and always been there for us all. She is a wonderful, caring person. Thank you Lisa.

To all the staff - the care, help and support you have afforded me has been truly amazing.

I will be forever in your debt for giving me my life back and hope you will all be proud of my achievements very soon.

Lots of love and gratitude xxx
