Okay so I haven't updated here for awhile but things have been so crazy!! I was contacted by a German tv company who were interested in filming my story they also pit me in touch with a surgeon who wanted to help me so here it is after years of fighting and finally deciding to put myself out there my dreams are going to come true!! The surgery is still going to cost alot of money but I have been offered a largely discounted rate I am only £900 away from my target which is amazing everyone's help and support has been amazing please keep sharing and donating to help me raise the final amount :)
Love to you all

Dear NHS, The budget man, The chair of the CCG for nearly 10 years my body's been broke and you still wont help fix me
I've done what you've asked I've followed the rules
My bodies a mess and you don't have a clue
still you resist and still you say no
Don't you understand i have nowhere else to go!
I don't want to be a glamour model or appear on TV i just want to be happy, i just want to be free
its okay for you with your connections and high paying job and the god like power you hold to decide to change a life for the better or tell them theyre denied
If you were me you'd be top of the list
no questions asked
no bill to pay
In and out within a day
I'm not a high flyer, a lawyer or a quack
I'm a mother of four
and i want my life back
I didn't ask to get sick or have a disease that has left me with nothing but pain and unease
I have tried to explain and show you these things but my emails ignored and so are my screams
I don't understand your logic or why you keep saying no
for without the NHS i have nowhere to go
so another year passes where my life is not my own.
I'm tired of fighting for what i know whats right and having to prove i deserve a happy healthy life.
If you could be me for just one day i know you'd change your mind and you budgeting ways
but that's not going to happen so i guess that its clear if you deny me again i'll see you next year.

So the article has had mixed comments as to be expected I guess I just wish people would find out the facts before making negative comments! Oh well I refuse to let it get to me i know I deserve to to be happy with my body, I have overcome so many obstacles I won't let anything stop me now
Thank you again to everyone who has shared my story and showed support to my cause I couldn't do it without you!!
