An ill wind

I write to inform your readers of a pandemic of VHI-tis that is sweeping the nation causing much suffering and silently draining the resources of individuals and families throughout the State.
I have been aware of this disease for some time but have been waiting for sufficient evidence to link the various symptoms that are caused by this terrible plague.
As the disease is in the early stages of recognition by the medical establishment and will undoubtedly prove controversial, it might be easiest to explain its effects with an example of the most recent case I encountered whilst working at the 'out of hours' service in Dublin.
