I don't blame the girl, But i do think she should man up and get over it. We don't all have perfect bodies. Deal with it like everybody else. I spent my teens trying to scour my face and ripping fistfulls of hair out of my head. I was told to do breathing exercises when i felt bad.
The thing that i think is unfair about the NHS isn't the comparison here. I don't think cancer is comparable, I don't like it when people compare IVF and Cancer either. That annoys me. It's the random rulings that annoy me, In all areas. There should be more consistent procedures and rules in place.
Antenatal scans are something that is inconsistent - You can book in a hospital who will refuse to tell you the gender at 20 weeks due to people aborting one gender - Yet the next hospital will tell you. That to me is a waste of NHS resources - Because if you're that desperate you'd just book in at the next hospital. They should either allow it everywhere, charge a fee everywhere or abolish it completely everywhere.
Cosmetic surgery like this case, Again it's inconsistent. There will be women all over who are severely depressed (And not shouting about it to all and sundry) who will be refused. They shouldn't be refused while one woman is granted. It should be consistent. If you meet a criteria you get the treatment, Or they stop it all together.
She doesn't say she was depressed in fact she says she burst into tears discussing it and then the person responsible for the article linked above uses the expression 'emotionally depressed'. No wonder tabloid journalism does so well when people comment on something that isn't even in the body of the article beyond the opinion of the writer!
Its nigh impossible to get anything from the NHS other than copious amounts of drugs that only make you worse and eventually dependant once your body shuts off production of the feel good hormones thanks to the drugs.
Speak as you find as you say and I appreciate you are speaking about your experience as a victim of depression. I spent the week around the New Year in Intensive Care and the treatment I had from everyone was absolutely superb.
This angers me! She clearly from looking at what people have said and what she has done is that she is completely living off the state - this should never ever have been done! I can think of far better things this can be used for instead
Now I don't want to get political, however is this the whole story? Why would she agree to this article if she knew the backlash that would happen? Is this the presses way of slating the NHS so people won't feel so bad when the Tories sell it off to their rich friends? You can NEVER trust the press these days. I still disagree and really she needs more than a boob job. What a munta! In my defence I'm also a bit of a munta myself.
On a phone in on TV yesterday morning. One woman said her breasts were very large and caused her severe back problems. She can't get NHS treatment to which I think she has every right to. Simply because of the physical element. It seems it all depends on where you live.
