In this blighted house: Coming Home To Ireland

In this blighted house: Coming Home To Ireland: For 42 years I lived away from Ireland. I left in 1972 as many young Irish girls go nursing in Great Ormond Street Children's H...

this is my twin sisters blog today, just after the high jinks of celebrating our national day of loving ireland to bits and back.

Loving Ireland, loving being Ireland is not the same as 'caring ireland, and caring for the irish nation, its vastly different to be fantastical about OIRISH around the world to being in the midst of the hard, painful grind of living it and being in it.

its torture.

A collective initiative is needed as in a case against Ireland and its human rights against people who are sick,disabled and poor.  we have a major HUMAN RIGHTS issue, even on the european commissions site by all european standards we are dragging our heels to bring human rights to Ireland and Ireland is the last to even acknowledge we owe it to the citizens to uphold human rights values, because their actions are against everything that is central to human rights in what we or they, (enda Kenny, acting taoiseach stated in the Dail) 'we are a modern society.  PUKE stuff.

we also do not seem to have it in us to fight back, this appalls me that we take this on the chin, because the suffering is immense and all stand by and leave the most vulnerable unsupported.

this fact too is recognised in europe and we have been hauled over the coals about the measures Ireland took to deprive its citizens their human rights but what next.

where is the collective thinking and outcry, you cannot expect things to change unless you are prepared to stand up and fight for change, and you cannot expect to do it alone, if Europe can admonish us for our human rights violations and dragging of heels, why is it not entering the fray to support the vulnerable, are we not in the EU together?  and have we not handed over OUR money to YOUR banks in central Europe?

we have, and yet you name our suffering and do nothing about it at all.

we have a Europe that isnt working as it should.

a Europe only intent of helping a few, not intent on upholding what was once known as 'society'

i feel ashamed and equally sad at the end of my life, to think that whilst we celebrate 100yrs of what was called tyranical oppression, we are now in the depths of both oppression from the inside, and oppression from Europe, we should be calling for the 'second revolution'  not celebrating the first.

sure after the first, things started going all down hill again.  nothing improved for the Irish here.  to day even more are leaving than ever before and those left behind are oppressed.

i contacted the European Ombudsmans about my treatment in Ireland by the HSE

today i again wrote to the european ombudsman's office.

i wrote explaining further about the way i have been treated and continue to be treated by the Irish Healthcare system, in the community.

without restraint, without censure, without following any of their own guidelines, the HSE is law unto itself.

it consistently gets it wrong.
it blames patients for being in distress rather than help a person in distress.
in fact so isolated from their client base, they willingly call the police for a presenting distressed older women rather than hand a cup of tea out and calm a very sick person.

its not usual behaviour to call the police on old sick women.
there is something very evil by any healthcare system that does so, therefore i call it draconian and uneducated.
what more i intend to take this further.
i will fight the HSE tooth and nail for all the damage they have visited upon myself and my dear twin sister.

its outrageous, that we are celebrating 100yrs of 'liberation' for being oppressed, yet in this country of mine, we are being oppressed.
there are those in ireland who are treated very badly from our healthcare services.
because we have no healthcare service, what we have is so abusive.

we have spending on health through the roof and yet we can do no more than deliver a dangerous service, known to be dangerous and when the HSE are shown up for what they are, they will target you more, like a criminal.

this is happening in the most oppressed 'liberated' state i have had any experience with.

there is one person who will not be celebrating our 100 years of liberation.
i feel disappointed and ashamed to call myself Irish.
i am ashamed of my country, the government and the people in power who abuse others and their own citizens, who they are entrusted to care for.

you wont get that here.
far too many people are in a similar boat to myself.
far too many.
i want the world to understand, we are not being supported by europe to become more responsible how we treat our own.
we should be severely admonished for human rights violations right across the board, from the elderly, the sick, the frail, the disabled and the vulnerable.

i hope i live long enough to see justice been done for all who suffer at the hands of the HSE.
i have to say, they are worse that the mafia at how well they seem to target those least able to defend themselves. and do so in a hideous fashion with no feelings or empathic thought about the harm they do physically, psychologically and mentally on the members of society they are entrusted to care for.

In this blighted house: The complainer is mad, the complained about is san...: In order to have your needs met in Ireland you must become a 'professional' in disability, health, law and advocacy!  You can no lon...

this is an excellent blog and i know full well what my twin sister is referring to here.

to look at the brown files is testament to the amount of energy they use in defending their position.  this isnt about healthcare, it never apparently was, as professors have even said the HSE is about managing money, not a healthcare system for sick and frail people.

if they have to justify anything at all, they have a complete and fully operational legal department all to itself, there they spend thousands of your money constructing legal defense in case its needed, and no letter seems sent out to the community unless overseen by a legal entity to make damn sure the position they hold on any perverse behaviours can be legally construed as viable - a whitewash in other words.

they also manage to call you everything under the sun and yet write to you and request strongly that you refrain from speaking about members of the hse in that 'tone' as it can have a detrimental effect on the professional standing.

but far be it for the HSE to take its own advice because i have been attacked in defamatory statements pretty much consistently.  the consistency of it now amounts to torture, harrassment, bullying and defamation of character.

so the equal stance to rights is not even there and never was and wonder will it ever be.

take a bow my sister, we say it squarely as it is, how it happens and use intellect to challenge - is it ever right to behave so badly towards sick people?
