In the system

Where I work, we use a whole world of words that I've learned to accept, but never learnt to like.....

In the system
Enablement, reablement,
intermediate care,
early discharge, virtual wards.
Doctors unaware

Emergency bed days, patient pathways,
telecare alarms,
day care, dom care, home support.
Ageing, graceless charms.

I only started writing three years ago and was approached by a publisher 2 weeks after I sent out my first MS. That was nearly 3 years ago. Since then my first book has been reprinted twice in six months, my second book will be published this June, I'm writing the third, and my publisher has already approached my agnet for a fourth.
So keep going! It happened to me, it can happen to you. Good luck with your writing!
Please visit my blog and leave a comment so I can find you again and come back to see you you're doing.
My series is set in Kent, by the way.
