Respite

Respite

Just discovered that the social work dept,are willing to release money for me to get a couple of days away.

Hubby and I have decided my 14 year old son and I should go,and get a couple of days at the coast.I'm so excited.

The only reason I can even get away is thanks to the amazing people who helped me fundraise to raise the money for my portable concentrator. I'm so happy.

I've been walking a lot more,building up my strength

I may have a terminal diagnosis,but I'm a strong Scottish woman,I refuse to just sit and wait for death,if it want me,it'll need to take me on,and it better be brave lol.

I hope all you lovely people are as well as can be 💗

I find if I sit down for too long my chest and back starts to ache , also I get tetchy , I need to keep on the go. But other days I'm like a zombie. I can only presume this is my body telling me to slow down 😀
