Today we are angry.
We are angry because there is a woman from our area experiencing all of the problems we have been talking about.
We are angry that she is miles away from her home.
We are angry that she is miles away from her family.
We are angry because she's separated from her children.
We are angry that she doesn't have any visitors as its too far to travel.
We are angry that she's being treated by people who don't know her or her history.
We are angry that she was treated in a dismissive and disrespectful way.
We are angry that she couldn't leave easily as she is ill, alone and miles from home.
We are angry that this will continue as there's no chance of her being moved closer to home.
We are angry that it took intervention from people on twitter for anything to change.
We are angry that this has even happened.
There are a number of us who have found what happened today with the women being treated in Burnley very triggering as it reminded us of the experiences we have faced ourselves when being treated away from home.
There was a time when this would have upset us and maybe we would have withdrawn into ourselves and let it churn and churn into introspective negativity.
But no. While we are deeply, deeply concerned that there is someone out there who is struggling with the situation she finds herself in, through no fault of her own, we are not running away.
We are angry. Very angry. And that anger is galvanising us to make sure that we keep on going and we keep on fighting this until we have the female beds back at The Orchard.
