Response from, well...

not really sure who, but as I sent the email to Steve Waite, guess it must be someone concerned with  him....

Dear Nutter (no, it didn't really say that...!)
I am very sorry to learn of your concerns in your email.
Your email has been forwarded to our Locality Manager for comment about Crisis Homes in Plymouth.
Please note we are not able to answer any concerns about how the police dealt with you following this incident, you would need to take this up directly with them.
I would anticipate that we will be able to answer your concerns within the next 21 working days.
The response will be emailed to you at this email address.
I trust this is agreeable to you.
Yours sincerely
then... later that day.....
Further to my earlier email today, I have now been provided with the following response from our Locality Manager who has responsibility for 136 suite place of safety. I hope you will find this helpful:
" Thank you for raising your concerns in regard to the availability of a 136 suite (Place of Safety). I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments in terms of the need to provide this service for vulnerable individuals. Your feedback is both compelling and moving and emphasises the need to resolve this. I can advise you however that the reason that it is currently not available is not linked to savings. Although the building was funded initially, no extra money was made available to pay for additional staff to facilitate assessments. Initially staff were provided from the Glenbourne unit, however, this is a busy acute inpatient service and not resourced to release staff to undertake unplanned assessments. The consequence is that the care of individuals on the wards suffers.
We have however agreed a plan with our Commissioners that will mean that those resources will be made available. We are aiming for this to be in place by next April.
I would like to thank you for your kind feedback about our staff who work with you.
We would welcome your involvement and support in shaping the operational policy for the suite in the future and will contact you once this work has commenced if agreeable to you.
With best wishes"
If this is something you would like to become involved with please email me back and I will arrange this for you.
Yours sincerely

Hmmmm.... Ok, I'll think about that and get back to you....... do I want to write your operational policy for section 136, ah well it will keep me busy!

Hello. I'm also here from Frugal Queen's blog, and I wanted you to know I'm reading. I don't often comment, but I'm paying attention.

In the last few years I've been struck by the realisation that some men - more than people think - genuinely do not like women. I'm not talking about obvious rapists and mass murderers, but fully functioning males who harbour a quiet hatred towards our gender and exercise it where and when they can.

It seems to me you may have been the victim of one such man, perhaps. I realise you cannot talk about any of this, but know that for both your illness and its causes I feel for you.

Congratulations on your success with your MP so far. You seem really smart and articulate and I am certain you will make a strong impact.

I can't say anything which would be either libellous or evidential about what has happened to me, so I can't really say anything in response to your comment, except that perhaps you are right, and many thanks for your support.... keep reading, it is a journey, a long one, a tough one, but I will win, and hell that will be some party!
