After many years of misdiagnoses, finally three years ago Joshua Bella found out the name of the thing that caused him constant suffering- Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a hereditary disorder for which there is no cure. He can be made comfortable enough to have a productive fulfilling life. There are different forms of the disease and he has its more severe. He is not getting the care he needs, the equipment and pain meds, the small things like help getting out of bed and scheduling changes to comply with what he body needs. The prison claims it does all it can- by law, the prison does not have to give GOOD care, the just have to give care. How can we get him even the small items that would change his life dramatically. With luck , he will be able to get out in April of next year- helping him to hold on is our challenge. Also FFUP is working on a class action with inmate litigators and he will be part of it.
- Pain. If over-the-counter pain relievers — such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) — aren't enough, your doctor may prescribe stronger medications for your joint or muscle pain.
- Blood pressure. Because blood vessels are more fragile in some types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, your doctor may want to reduce the stress on the vessels by keeping your blood pressure low.

And so it goes, with Joshua Bella and many others in there- not neglect, for there is a lot of activity BUT the need is not addressed. FFUP believes the overcrowding in our prisons and serious, dangerous lack of staff has led to much misuse and abuse- and records become the important tool in fending off redress by prisoners- they are done well, but the care is poor, the resources not used because instead they are used to warehouse an inflated population.
Joshua still in excruciating pain with a lot of pretend care here is series of requests and responses using health service unit (HSU)slips. His comments on responses are put in text boxes.
