I'm one of those people who always manages to find a silver lining - or I was. Not any more seemingly.
I'm waiting for a COPD determination, my son had an operation in September for cancer (then another because a drain was left in him by accident) and he is now having chemotherapy and today I woke up with mis-matched feet!!!!!
My right foot is a lovely foot - it's normal size (4.5) pink in colour and generally fine.
My left foot, however, is NOT a lovely foot. It is bright red, swollen, shiny and sooooooo sore. My left foot does not match my right foot.
I spoke to a friend, who is a nurse, and she advised that I make an appointment with my GP asap which I have done. My appointment is at 9.50am tomorrow.
A swollen foot seems such a small thing in comparison with everything else but it is about to push me over the edge ('the final straw' springs to mind!).
My positive attitude seems to have deserted me. I am so fed up - I have just about had enough.
