Hi there T2D I'm sorry to learn that your lovely Frank has now worn himself out...it was something going to happen as he is continually sent on false errands by the doctors and chemists, just came to mind! Theatre sounds wonderful and I'm certain you'd both enjoy yourselves so make it a priority to be able to go eh? Save a Loraz if needed,so you dont go into total panic mode! That's just what I'd do and I'm certainly not a medical professional lol!!

The councillor you mentioned,is she to do with Mental Health as on my area they dont get such a posh name- just mental health people! If she's good at her job she'll be needing to see you at least once a week for min of an hour. That's as per NICE guidelines.

You are sounding more upbeat than a few days ago so I'm hoping things are seeming a little brighter now?

Have a good night,Cx

Hi. Yes frank has been getting the run around but must say he went to chemist for nebuliser fluid and had no problem wonder of wonders fuming when the phone rang this morning The theatre is with Breathe easy they have got me a seat on end of aisle in case i have a panic attack .I will Be doing what you suggest I had to take half this morning what with the very high BP reading and Being in bloody pain again. I was a bundle of nerves and if i had checked my anti biotics i would have realised i wouldnt be going to Breathe easy and frank could have had a better sleep im sat here with the fan on absoloutley mafting councillor has 1hour sessions though it went over today shr is coming again on the 25th take care xxx
