I have my next cons appt on Thursday (horrible moment when I got back today, saw 'appt style' letter and thought they might be postponing it but was just one postponing my heart appt till Feb - what is the point in that?)
Basically I am incredibly nervous about it, in the way you would be before a really important job interview. Not concerned about the medical stuff, probably there won't even be any. Having been to 2nd cons appts before I'm expecting a 10 minute chat, but I've waited 4 months for this, everyone else I've asked has said they can't really help and to see what cons says, and so basically I feel like everything is riding on me putting my case to the cons in the time I have and getting across that it's got worse and I really need her to do something about it. I know there are people with brittle asthma etc worse off on here and elsewhere but I don't think I can face months more of waiting and feeling rubbish without any medication or anyone knowing how to help.
Sorry, turning into a bit of a rant but was wondering if anyone has any advice on 'effective communication' in appts? I ought to know this stuff, I can do it fine in other contexts (except job interviews lol) but in cons appts I tend to babble like an idiot and come out feeling like it wasn't much use.
I know about making a list, need to remember to look at it! Was thinking of doing basic headings this time and just using it as a reminder. Usually have a good memory but that also goes in appts.
Any other tips? Sorry for the ramble, I am just so worried about getting this right as I feel like it's my last chance (I know not really true but no-one seems to have a clue!) So worried she's just going to say, 'well, sorry, but we still have no idea, can't do anything for you'.
