OK, so it’s a bit of an odd one, but basically I am trying to find somebody who helped me last week, and was hoping Broadsheet might come to the rescue.

Long story short, I was walking through Smithfield last Tuesday (January 24) morning on my way to work when I became dizzy. Instead of doing the sensible thing and sitting down, I decided to keep walking and at that point, things get very blurry.

My next bit of memory is sitting on a kerb or a step with the kind-hearted person who came to help me, called an ambulance and waited with me for the ambulance.

More than anything, I just want to say thank you to her. I’m sure it would have been far easier to walk on past me, but you didn’t. So thank you.

(And just for your own peace of mind, I’m OK. The staff at the Mater were brilliant and did a battery of tests on me over the following 36 hours, and there is no lasting damaged done, just a few bruises from where I must have landed)

So if she is not a Broadsheeter herself, I’m hoping one of her friends might be a reader and might be able to forward this on to her (I’m hoping this isn’t such a regular occurrence that it wouldn’t have earned at least a brief mention in a conversation) and she might let me know she got this: rorysmithfield@gmail.com. Thank you.

Anyone?

          I thought the sneering tone of steve’s comment seemed a bit uncalled for.

          I was wondering did he feel good after belittling rory, for wanting to thank someone who did something nice for him.

  1. Spaghetti Hoop

    That’s a great thing to do. Even if your First Aid training isn’t the best, always help a person in trouble.

    As it happens, that’s pretty much the same thing I was advised by the medical people at the Mater.

    So I’m starting with toast and I’ll work my way up to porridge

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      maybe try a banana if you can’t get the porridge into you first thing , take care

    2. bertie blenkinsop

      Word of advice, go for the porridge in the smallest bowl, that’s usually juuuuuust right.

    Fair play for making the effort to show your gratitude to this kind person and also for not taking their help for granted. Hopefully you make contact with this lady and good to hear the tests showed all is well.
