Haven't blogged this week as I had the worst flare-up for years lasting from last Tues evening to yesterday
Tomorrow is my CT scan (to see if anything has changed since the last one in 2008). Now for most people it would be a breeze, but for me as soon as I see '..and you need a full bladder' I groan. Having a full bladder hurts like hell. That's the whole reason I need this scan. Because my hospital is also a trauma centre there may be a delay of several hours before the scan. Aaargh. I have a reasonable fear of not being able to hold on and then covering the scanner with wee. I will prob be the only person with a change of clothes 'just in case'.
The scan will involve injecting a dye into my bloodstream. I'm not scared of needles, I hate them because they hurt. My arms are so scarred from a gazillion blood tests that it hurts every time.
And all for a test that I'm 99.9% sure will show nothing.
Feeling sorry for myself today but am determined to stick to a healthier diet and not reach for my old friend chocolate.
still on 50mg ami, cerezette, loratadine (for allergies)
