You have no idea John what it felt like, this went on for around a year and a half, the hate and support they got from a number of members within the club was staggering, people who Dave knew for 40 years turned on him because he himself has multiple sclerosis.
I was at Partizan the other day, would'nt even go near the Grimsby table, i saw people in wheelchairs at the venue and a large number of people with disabilities, we have that in the wargame world, i felt sick and angry at the same time, people have no idea what this Club is like, they seriously believe and are very committed and open to hate against disabled people.
My daughter is the youngest person with multiple sclerosis in the United Kingdom to have this, its so rare the school did'nt know what to do i had to pull her out, even the nurses are not trained to give injections to my Natasha because she is so young, the G.P. and nurses are not prepared to take the responsibility in case she gets seriously ill because it will fall on them.
The needle is like a intercept missile, the drug is called Avonex, she injects herself, she never once has cried and has always said people are worse off than her, she generally is a very nice person.
I wrote to Partizan explaining the situation of Grimsby Wargame club, that they should never have a table as this type of hate against disabled people should be stamped out in our hobby, i will protest outside the venue if they ever get a table at any venue and shame the lot of them, my next step then would be the national papers as my Natasha is abit of a celebrity being so young to have this desease.
