Ha! Got your attention. Pretty much the only way I could get people to find the way to this hidden topic of mystery, the petitions and online campaigns topic.

This year I spent 3 months in a psychiatric hospital. It was incredibly shit for a whole raft of reasons from being horrendously ill, right through to the utterly vile crap they served as food. The worst bit, though, was the impact it had on my children. They really, really suffered. The only thing that made it better for them was that I was close by.

They've now closed the hospital to women. Just women. Not men, they still get local care, but if I got ill now I'd be shipped off an hours drive away from where I live.

So a few of the women where I live have started a campaign. We've been doing pretty well, but we need more support.

If you can spare a moment of your time to sign our petition, we'd be grateful. It's here -

I'm posting this in my usual posting name so I don't get accused of being a fricking spammer again.

Oh wow!!

I've been out tonight with a friend and have just got back. I couldn't resist a look at the petition and was wondering where all of the new signatures had come from. I can't believe it's on 476 now! That's so close to 500.

You lot are bloody amazing. Really. You have no idea how much this helps and how much better my evening feels now I've seen this. THANK YOU Flowers
