when the Irish simple do not understand words, phrases and ideologies, it has to be explained. Manure Curley Carrot does this.

Manure Curley Carrot-Top

It is a
 old World

Playing the dumb carrot

Ms. Curley Carrot-Top has this definition of playing the dumb carrot – by example lies therein the truth of ‘playing the dumb carrot:

what do they mean by ‘ongoing physiotherapy?

Curley Carrot-Top is not fooled – so tries to offer assistance in the task of understanding.

to   HSE

Respondents to this question have answered the following:

Long term
Should mean it is happening
Webster Dictionary: continuing to exist, happen or progress. Continuing without reaching an end.
Continuous, ongoing and regularly
Continuous. Frequent. Repeated.
·       Oxford dictionary definition:  Continuing; still in progress. Eg ‘This consultation remains ongoing and as a result, no date has been set for closure.’

SYNONYMS (oxford dictionary)
in progress, under way, going on, continuing, happening, occurring, taking place, proceeding, being done, being worked on, being performed, current, extant, existing, existent, progressing, advancing, evolving, growing, developing

Misunderstanding can get in the way….

Dear Mr. Minister for Health (Teachta Dala),

Them twins are getting a ‘skilled professional service.’
This is the definitive version.
And if you believe that – you will believe anything.

Yours sincerely

Acting head of Disability
Area CHO 6
(‘acting head,’ secunded from Mental Health – the real one is on pregnancy leave.  Rest assured, she has paid her stamps and is full of entitlement).

The manure bunny trap = venus fly trap

There has to be song in this one, if there was it goes something like this, (goltrai), I do believe.

John Steinbeck once wrote that "they're a dark people with a gift for suffering way past their deserving", about the Irish. I couldn't help but agree with him on this quote.

John Steinbeck, who be the Derk People?  Is it the HSE or the suffering?
Manure Curly Tops Carrot’ will explain the Dark side of the dark people who inflict suffering way past OUR deserving.

‘Barney McKenna - I wish I had someone to love me

Christy Moore – Natives

"For all of our languages, we can't communicate"

This is for the education of the Minister for Health and the DG of the HSE, it clearly is needed in spades.

Emphasis is on the spade or the shovel digging for this.

(shovel is drawn here and a spade for comparison)

Fake news
by Manure Curley Carrot-Top:
the Irish meaning of:
  10th Anniversary of the adoption of CRPD: 2006 to 2016

  The Convention follows decades of work by the United Nations to change attitudes and approaches to persons with disabilities. It takes to a new height the movement from viewing persons with disabilities as “objects”  of charity, medical treatment and social protection towards viewing persons with disabilities as “subjects” with rights, who are capable of claiming those rights and making decisions for their lives based on their free and informed consent as well as being active members of society.
The Convention is intended as a human rights instrument with an explicit, social development dimension. It adopts a broad categorization of persons with disabilities and reaffirms that all persons with all types of disabilities must enjoy all human rights and fundamental freedoms. It clarifies and qualifies how all categories of rights apply to persons with disabilities and identifies areas where adaptations have to be made for persons with disabilities to effectively exercise their rights and areas where their rights have been violated, and where protection of rights must be reinforced.


Down with that carrot says the Minister with ‘special’ responsibility for those (in Ireland) with a disability.

E.g. In other words, plain (Irish) speak “Fuck THAT!”

Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
All adults have the right to be safe and to live a life free from abuse.  All persons are entitled to this right, regardless of their circumstances. It is the responsibility of all service providers, statutory and non-statutory, to ensure that, service users are treated with respect and dignity, have their welfare promoted and receive support in an environment in which every effort is made to promote welfare and to prevent abuse.” ‘Safeguarding Vulnerable Persons at Risk of Abuse – National Policy and Procedures’.
In December 2014, the HSE launched its safeguarding policy for older persons or persons with a disability that, as a result of physical or intellectual impairment, may be at risk of abuse.
The “Safeguarding Vulnerable Persons at Risk of Abuse  - National Policy and Procedures”, which applies to all HSE and HSE funded services, outlines a number of principles to promote the welfare of vulnerable people and safeguard them from abuse.  These include a requirement that all services must have a publicly declared “No Tolerance” approach to any form of abuse and must promote a culture which supports this ethos.

 Down with that carrot says:

“A Strategy for Equality”
“We, as people with disabilities, are shouldering our responsibility to ensure that disabled people are “included” as full citizens in Ireland. It is now time that everyone else joins this process, so that we can all live and participate together as equal members of society”.
This Report is an equality strategy which will, if implemented, set about removing the barriers which stand in the way of people with disabilities who want to live full and fulfilled lives. It will also benefit greatly the parents and carers of people with disabilities. The Commission’s strategy involves legislative solutions, proposals for new policy initiatives and new structures for delivery of equality services within a framework of rights, not charity. The Commission has developed a model of service which places the user of those services at the centre of the process of service delivery, from the planning stage right through to implementation.
So says my friend Paddy Doyle on his website

In other words, plain (Irish) speak “Fuck THAT!”  consider a HSE logo here too please.


Social Care

(the reality of “sunny side up)?”

The Social Care Division was established to support ongoing service requirements of older people and people with disabilities. It is a fundamental step in moving forward with the design and implementation of models of care across both these Care Groups to support and maintain people to live at home or in their own community and to promote their independence and lifestyle choice in as far as possible.

a stain on my landscape - the HSE and accountability

There is nothing worse in life than to take a Life.

Taking of life in all its forms, is obhorrent and death, (as in a killing) - shedding blood and ending the heart beat is not the only way this can be done.
There is a slow torturous way and I have felt it.  I have been at the receiving end of a harrowing period of my time on this earth.

Last quarters of life in a normal existence can and should be peaceful and in someway restful, calm and enjoyable.
If naturally you cannot attain that through personal sorrows i would find that understandable and believable. If sadness, shock, trauma and severe trauma at that comes at this delicate period of a person's life and is caused by STATE then this is a crime.
remember the term of 'STATE'.  State is a body that as a body is enlisted to help its members, the people.
The State, that is, all forms of State rule and oversight form one purpose, 'oversight' and this 'oversight' is further divided into areas of ownership, e.g Law, Health, Policing, Housing, Finance et al.
Any one of these, who illegally disrupts the status quo, knowingly disrupts the life of its citizens by illegal means is committing a crime.

to hurt and harm an individual in the state whilst claiming to uphold the health of the nation is a crime.
To hurt and harm an individual in the NAME of its function, healthcare is even worse.
To damage a person who can then see no way out of profound trauma and is living a life of hell is a crime.    Living a life of torture during a time when she should be at peace with herself, her world and making peace with her future death and fragile state is a crime of Murder.

I see the death of a person as the most horrific event in a person's life, unless of course she/he feels at that time, it will come as a relief.   
If the person, in sickness,  had the ability to be at peace and had help to live then that should be the aim of society.

The aim of any healthcare system is not to deconstruct the human persona, but to assist in enabling the person live a healthy and wholesome life and lifestyle.  Anything short of this is using the brief of 'healthcare services' in a twarted fashion and not upholding the role placed on a person who has the skill to make life better for a sick person.
Over and over I have been victim to the abusive services of healthcare in Ireland.
I have been hurt, damaged and defamed by healthcare personnel.  I have been severely traumatised by healthcare personnel who take ownership over a persons rights, rather than enable a person.
Naming the HSE as the cause of deep and profound trauma is something i never envisaged doing at the end of my days, there is no doubt in my mind who caused such severe pain.  No doubt at all.

I am heartened to see written down confirmation that others see it this way too.
i have known others have witnessed my personal pain and heard my voice and cry to be heard.   It has been heard and has been believed.

To me that is good.  It is the confirmation that porkies are not being bandied about by myself, for I have always been honest and truthful to a fault.
Having Asperger syndrome I guess has helped my moral fibre, for people with Asperger syndrome do find it difficult to lie.  I have to say i find it strange and profoundly difficult to do anything other than tell the full truth and nothing but the truth.
I couldn't rest easily in bed at night if i had lied, i never lie.
It pleases me greatly that i have such high expectations of myself over lying.
It pleases me enormously to understand the concept around moral fibre, moral duty and the ability to stay with the truth at all times.

Concepts around abuse and suffering and scheming and lying are gross to me.   To hurt a person is a horrible thing.
I would not want it.  I would not wish it but i have been at the receiving end of it - from the HSE.
Never have the HSE actually held ownership of moral fibre to say 'mai culpa, mai maxima culpa'
Never have the HSE apologised without innuendo in a scheming way as to call say a dreadful statement which is seen as callous be glossed over and out as 'a quip.'  This is how they do not apologise well.   Therefore, do not apologise at all.
One complaint about seeing a statement on file which was HORRENDOUS for this blogger, was to the HSE 'a quip'  just 'a quip.'  The viewing by the person of her statement as 'a quip' is contrary to her verbal statement of 'i would be appalled if i knew i had said something like that.'  I told this HSE official to be prepared to be appalled and showed where I saw she had written it down.
Her horror had turned into 'quip', she wasn't horrified.   She apologised for her 'quip,' downgrading her horror  in a sentence to a 'slip of the tongue in her written statement, the 'quip.' of it!
It didn't seem hard for her to acknowledge a 'quip' in writing or acknowledge how appalled she would be if she had said such a thing, but then acknowledging  it as a 'quip' says a lot to me.   All the wrong way of dealing with her acknowledgement of being appalled if she had said it.
She did, she wasn't as appalled in writing!

A deceased counsellor of the state writes, 'ann and margaret ...have been badly served by the state but horrendously so in recent years.' is testament that we as good people had been heard by another who was adored by community until her untimely death.
She heard us, witnessed some of our distress at the hands of the HSE and wrote it as it was.

She also reminded the HSE of their role in our life, and their duty to us, and didn't say we had to have a duty to the HSE in return. For that is not the role we played in this life, but they certainly had a remit to uphold their brief to provide a decent healthcare system of care in a caring manner, which she reminded them they were not doing.
Further another complaint upheld for both twins, the HSE had been requested to sort a mess and further, they were told of their duty to us, as opposed to what our duty should be to the HSE in all things.

The acceptance by the HSE that they should be able and strong to face all difficult situations with total committment and professionalism was dictated by this investigator.  Not to need, demand or expect a type of incestuous gratitude which may see them withdraw support and help if they didn't get that!  one such person blaming their lack of job satisfaction towards us as our fault when we see what it really is.
the hurt they have inflicted has been so bad, we consistently remind them of it.
This doesn't give them their job satisfaction but then to remind them they have to be professional may be viewed again as the thorn that is in their side when honest people face them with the truth and nothing but the truth, so help us god.

To me, in a once caring society, upholding care for all its citizens seems a chore, a financial burden and an unnessary part of job descriptions.
its like as if its secondary to the wonderful reports, and the policy documents around which their work is based.
the work itself is sort of a tag on and a type of begrudgingly offered part of the remit if they like you, definitely if they dislike you you can hope for the worst.
We have faced the worst.
Lessons on all of this really doesnt get heard and lesssons are not learnt by this State body.

the snappers at the heel of the HSE will be snapping because they are truthful, honourable and hate injustice.
you won't get snappers at the heels of anyone, if someone does good, snappers are far less, but snappers will snap if harm has been done.

I say to the HSE, isnt it time...time to learn a big lesson here?
What if i was a brother or sister to you in real terms, look at it from that perspective, how well would you receive such treatment to a loved one, if you witnessed it in your own family group especially if the family member was vulnerable?
would you stand by and accept it, or would you be angry, upset and snap sometimes viciously at the hurt another is inflicting on your family member?  
you would.
You could do far better than this, i say.
You could make a better fist at being professional in what you are trained to do.
