    Unfortunately, standing there with my underpants over my long johns, they were injecting me with kryptonite.

    But I am disappointed that you have seen through my disguise of wearing glasses. It worked for Clark Kent, after all.

    @Graham I hope you can get your GP on side to help you through this with the antibiotic side of things.

    When I first fell ill with severe ME I was in a very bad way and had to be on antibiotics for nearly six months straight.

    Well, I have been out of hospital for just over 2 weeks now (5 visits in all), and my GP has taken over. This means that I actually get blood tests to determine whether the infection is still there before I stop the antibiotics. It's so nice to be handed on to someone who thinks.

    Have you seen the video on hospital admissions by Natalie and Josh Boulton?

    Yes, an A&E passport sounds like a good idea. I'm working on an information package to send to medical schools. Would @PhysiosforME like details? How do I contact the nurse involved in nursesforME?

    The twitter thread all followed on from a post of Natalie and Josh’s latest video on Hospital admissions.

    I have tagged you @Graham on a Thread discussing Nurses for ME from a while back. Thank you for jumping to offer assistance/knowledge.

    If I can be of any help, that would be good. But not if they are already well into it and I would only be an extra distraction.
