The poor Queen!

Posted , 10 users are following.

i just had a thought!  I think we should all spare a thought for Her Majesty!  Can you imagine going through all this in full glare of the public spotlight?  Imagine having to sit through countless boring functions, make stimulating small talk, smile, shake hands and be generally sunny and happy when you are feeling like ripping someone's face off?  Sitting through an interminably long outdoor function in the blazing heat and then hoping like mad the back of your dress is "okay" when you stand up.   Having to shake hands with thousands of over zealous people when aching joints just make you want to scream.  Three cheers for the Queen, oh and on second thoughts, spare a thought for good old Phil as well.

    Oh yes ! with a staff of many and specialists at the end of a phone, the best diet going, I think we could all cope better if we had her lifestyle.

    She has been brought up to cope with all the pressures.

    Sorry, but I'm coping on a really low income because of a disability that has no cure, and so cannot work as I used to. 

    My savings have all been spent on care and i will soon have to move out of my home through no fault of my own - I don't drink or smoke (never have) do drugs (never have) but still get no help unless I pay for it - because I look normal to the outside world.

      I agree with you Wen, I'm up for emphathising with any female whos suffering terrible symptoms, however, as you said Royalty....particularly the queen has trusted medical staff looking after her every whim, she dosen't need to wait for GP/specialist appointment for months, or sit on hold on the phone for the best part of the day to get a prescription, so as I said don't like to think of anyone suffering but the queen dosen't look as if shes suffering to me.

      Good luck btw to Kate & William and long may they keep on making gorgeous babies

    She was probably one of those who sailed through it unscathed.

    I remember reading years ago that both the Queen and Margaret Thatcher took HRT as neither could afford (not financially!!) to have their schedules disrupted by the menopause!!!!

    Well I see what your saying about the Queen having everything at her disposal but at the end of the day as we are all finding out, there is only so much you can do.  Either go the natural way or take HRT and both of those things are available to all of us.  At least we don't have to pretend everything is wonderful when we feel like c..p and have to look wonderful and put on a happy face every time we go out.  I'm sure she's had her moments in private just like the rest of us.  Come to think of it, maybe that's how Phil got the black eye 😜

    Oh my god! Are you really serious??

    This woman and her vast family literally have the world at her feet including medical care that most of us could never in a billion years access.

    I've been in a meeting and bled through my trousers. And your basically saying that because it happens to us normal women it matters less! Shame on you

      That is absolutely NOT what I am saying Lisa!  I am pointing out that we are all women, we all suffer from the same long list of symptoms but we don't have to worry about being on show to the whole world when we are having a bad day.  Yes of course she has access to the best medical care but I am asking, what more can they do for her than us?  If there was some magic remedy I think the rest of us would have heard about it.

      I truly don't understand why you even mentioned the queen. This is totally irrelevant to this forum which is about women in peri menopause. She must have been done with all this 30 years ago!

      'Shame on you'........hardly.  I think you're taking AusWinnie's comments totally out of context.  

      My take on this post is that any woman going through this cr*p, and especially one who sits on the World's stage, has AW's - and my! - sympathy.   I don't think you have to be a staunce Royalist to extend your sympathy to a woman in her 90s who still works.....bloody hard!

      And surely you don't expect any leader of a nation to have their general medical, obstetric and gynae needs met by the best health professionals available? 

      Put it this way: I know I couldn't and I doubt you could, do her job!!! 

      I hate to remid you, but mere plebs buy into a Private Health Scheme to access care over and above that which is offered on the NHS, and a lot of women on this site do too.  Do you hold such contempt for them too? Afterall, like you they work, they also leak and they also have to go through this:  its what most women do. 

      Its not like AW's sympathy was for the likes of Imelda Marcos, Winnie Mandela or dear ol' Robert Magabe's 'lovely' wife is it?!!

      Not sure if you're from the UK?  No-one says you have to 'like' the Royal Family at all. Many people don't.  So don't run away thinking I'm a staunch Royalist: I'm not necessarily. 

      I am, however, very pleased to be British and to live in a country ruled by a Monarchy.  I cannot imagine feeling the same towards Ronald Reagan, and the likes or Arnie S.....or even George Clooney, if you believe all you read!!  

      I'm not asking you to jon the UK's Royal Family Fan Club,  but maybe see the AW's post for the point that she's making. That being that most  women have a lot to deal with, regardless of status, and in the face of adversity, can get through, with/without the help of HRT through what is afterall, a rite of passage for the majority of women of 'age'. 

      Think your comments were unnecessarily harsh.

    I do think the Queen would of had the best treatment & tailored made, made to measure hormone HRT built for her!

    I do know they have a very good Homeopathic Doctor‎! but still im sure its a very difficult job at times....

    Hey girls. This hit a nerve with some, but some of the replies on here are plain nasty. We're all going through a horrible time, think about how your words affect a person already perhaps suffering from anxiety/depression etc. Whatever care royalty receive, i personally would find it horrific to be on public global display going through any trauma. The Queen is born to her life, & we are born to ours. We are all women non-the-less. Let's love each other <3>
