Thank you for taking the time to email your MP and asking them to reform the social care system so that the kind of abuse shown on BBC Panorama cannot happen again. It is vital that we have a social care system which is well funded and enables people with a learning disability to have the same choices and chances as everyone else.
Please forward any responses you receive to email@example.com and don't forget to ask your friends to email their MP too.

Last week, it was reported that baseball player Carlos Zambros of the Chicago Cubs was suffering with neck pain. He apparently played throughout the game, but with neck pain. As a result, he was sent home and referred for cervical spine x-rays. Where was the neck pain coming from?
According to Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago doctors found ?that the discomfort was coming from a knot in his neck and is mostly muscular.?
Most people if you ask them seriously can tell you when they noticed they started experiencing Neck Pain. Same with this ball player. He attributed his neck pain to bad neck posture while watching tv. According to Zambrano, ?I usually sleep with my head turned that way like when I?m watching TV. So I guess I?ll have to turn it the other way.?
Can Watching television, with your head turned a certain way, cause you so much pain, that you have to be sent to the hospital for neck x-rays. Well yes- especially if you are baseball player. Just like working on a computer for long periods of time, or working in a factory where you make widgets with your head down- watching tv with a bad neck posture can be the major source of pain. Imagine, you are sitting on your sofa, watching an hour long tv program- your head is turned one way, and your tv is on the other end. You may be using neck muscles that you are not used to using- causing discomfort, muscle spasm, tension and tightness. Now imagine you fall asleep like this- which happens with a lot of people. That can cause a major stiff neck in the morning.
Hopefully, Zambros will move his furniture around in his home so that watching television doesn?t attribute to his neck pain any more. We all know what poor sleep can do to people: tiredness, irritability, aching muscles, and neck pain. Any kind of pain can make you off of your game. I am sure this famous pitcher will figure it out.
