Student who was told by doctors her paralysis was 'all in her head' is now confined to a wheelchair because of 'medically unexplained' condition

***EXCLUSIVE*** WEST SUSSEX, UK: This student was told that her paralysis was ALL IN HER HEAD by doctors who couldn’t find a cause and discharged her – leaving her family no choice but to HIRE A WHEELCHAIR. Student, Poppy McCollum (18) from West Sussex, UK, woke up on April 1, 2018 with severe back pain which she assumed was from running. Unfortunately, the pain grew worse and paramedics were called to Poppy’s family home the following day, but they reassured her that it was just muscular, and it would go away. By April 3, Poppy attempted to stand up despite her back pain, but she couldn’t feel anything below her knees and collapsed onto the sofa nearby. She was taken to hospital, but they insisted that it was merely a pulled muscle. Although the sensation and movement in her legs came and went, within days, both of Poppy’s legs went completely numb from the tops of her thighs down to her toes. She was admitted to hospital where consultants suggested that Poppy had experienced a stroke, but a CT scan came back clear. Three days after being admitted, Poppy noticed weakness in her arms, and she had no sensation from her elbow to her fingertips. However, as tests came back inconclusive, Poppy was discharged after 11 days in hospital without a diagnosis, with some doctors suggesting it was all in her head. Poppy’s family hired a wheelchair as she could no longer walk, but she struggled to leave the house as she hated being pushed around because it made her feel helpless. During an outpatient appointment, a neurologist suggested that Poppy may have Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), a condition in which the nervous system doesn’t receive signals from the brain. This diagnosis was eventually confirmed in November 2018. Now, Poppy has no sensation or movement from below her stomach down to her toes, and her arms seize up sporadically, causing one or both arms to be paralysed from anywhere between two hours up to three weeks. Despite the devastating diagnosis, Poppy has accepted her condition and refuses to let it hold her back, instead opting to inspire hope in others.

The real life Rosie The Riveters: Colorized photos show women workers building fighter planes, trains and camouflage to support the US soldiers sent to the front in WW2

***EXCLUSIVE*** USA: Fascinating colour photos from 1942-43 show how invaluable women were to the United States’ war effort – with millions of women tasked with building war machines. Remarkable shots, many of them never published before, show industrious women employed as sootified railway engine workers; adding the crucial final details to an airplane motor, and crafting components for the USA’s state-of-the-art weaponry. As the United States sent millions of men to war, the country’s mills, factories and workshop needed replacement workers. Women, who traditionally had only been employed in ‘gender suitable’ roles such as admin, or were expected to stay at home to tend to the household, were asked to step up to fill their husband, brother, or father’s work boots. In order to recruit women for factory jobs, the US government created a propaganda campaign centred on a figure known as Rosie the Riveter. Renowned as ‘tough yet feminine’ whilst wearing navy overalls and sporting a red bandana, Rosie’s iconic image inspired a generation of women not only in America, but across the world.

Extraordinary colorized photos show how the US military built and trained crews for 100,000 tanks to take on the Nazi Panzer division after starting WWII with less than 1,000

***EXCLUSIVE*** USA: Stunning colour photos show hardy recruits and heavily armoured tanks being put through their paces before being sent to war – despite knowing the enemy would be better equipped. Learning lessons from the First World War - which saw death on an industrial scale due to the ‘mechanisation’ of war including machine guns, tanks and planes - the United States realised it needed an overwhelming armoured force to counter the Axis forces in the battlegrounds of Europe and the Pacific. In 1940, the USA only operated several hundred tanks. By the end of the war that number had soared to nearly 100,000. German tanks were technically superior but US tanks, such as the Sherman, were quicker to produce. In the end, it was on the strength of numbers that allowed the Allied Forces to triumph in the battle of tanks. These extraordinary pics, captured in colour by the United States Office of War Information department in June 1942, show a parade of state-of-the-art tanks preparing for action; a dusty crew proudly standing beside their M-4 Tank; and a determined looking soldier shouldering his trusty Garand rifle.
