Morning all my fibro friends i hope you are all ok .
Well further to my post a week ago about the memory test i attended the doctors surgery and he carried out a test which were questions and then he read a name and address and asked me to repeat it which i did. He said remember it as i will askk you again later. after some more questions he asked me for the name and address again - i could only remember part of it. I was in with him about 25 - 30 mins.
He said he wanted to do some blood tests. I went to see the nurse yesterday and she took the blood (by the way i am scared to death of needles but she was very good). I asked her exactly what the blood tests were as there were about 6 - 8 tests that they will be doing and i have to go back to the doctor next week. She advised me the blood tests were for DEMENTIA SCREENING. When i came home last night i could not stop myself looking at lots of sites relating to dimentia. I looked at the symptoms and i do have some of these so i have scared myself to death.
My fried said dont worry you are fine you are sound as a pound.
Hardly slept last night worrying about these tests and my follow up next Thursday.
Please can you all cross your fingers for me that the results are ok and it is something totally different.
