TBH I expected to be disappointed with the show. I can't imagine how they could help me with our issues (although fingers crossed the path I have chosen is working albeit slowly).
What did other people think of it?

I haven't seen it at all. S is hopeless, but as it's medical, no help with our issues, just meds and time...
Any good bits/things worth knowing?

TBH it was the advice people would give on here (or I would anyway) gradual retreat and rapid return.
Maybe later in the series they will deal with night mares, night terrors and anxiety issues.

Good advice then, but no new ideas. Oh well.
I would love someone to tell me what to do with S, I wish the normal stuff worked with her. She drives me insane, but other than sedation (it has been mentionned, I point blank refused to discuss it), I'm just going to have to put up with it for the next 18 months.

My GP suggestion sedation for U as well, I could understand why she did it because she could see how exhausted I was but I wouldn't agree. So okay you could say solutions have been offered that I have refused. Tell me S's issues again and age etc because I like something to think about when I can't sleep And because it is 'nice' to chat to someone else with issues... and with that U is crying and I'll chat further tomorrow

Hello, I'm back! Hope U is ok. S is currently coughing on and off and waking herself up, joy. Got inhalers for her yesterday, but I don't think it is asthma related, I think it's just been back to back viruses since Christmas making her cough.
S's issues from her point of view are - she wakes up all confused and cries, her legs and arms ache a lot of the time, copable during the day but she struggles big time at night.
From our point of view - She has weakened immune system, so picks up everything (and I mean everything) going, gets it worse than everyone else, and then takes twice as long to get rid of it. By which time her blood is even lower as her body fights itself and so her legs and arms get worse, and her immunity is lower as her blood is down and so the viscious cycle repeats ad infinitum. Chuck in some night terrors and sleep walks for good measure, and what a nighttime delight she is! If she gets the operation she needs to have it should help, but that will be at least 18 months away.
Hope you are asleep now and unable to answer. See you in the morning QI!
