Now I have a degree in dramatic arts and always steer towards the dramatic but my mil could win an Oscar. Over the past month we have had 9 visits from the paramedics after she's called 999 on many occasions with various illnesses. This weekend has taken the biscuit and she has had them out 4 times since Friday as well as a visit to the GP. She says everyone has got it wrong and she's dying. She's got a mild tummy bug (like we've all had). About an hour ago my husband received a phone call to say she's in our local hospital as she was demanding more tests. None of us have gone up there as we all have plans that cannot be changed. Her sons have said she'll have to get a taxi back. How do I stop her calling the paramedics for every ache and pain? I'm at my whits end and due to go away with work in about an hr.
