I am, to put it politely, a large woman, and I have areas of neuropathy (numbness), one of which is my lower stomach, which my lovely GP calls my 'skirt'. I cant see it, but I know there is some unusual swelling. My carer is off sick, and my daughter is coming over in the morning to help me shower. And now I am bleeding, not seriously but quite a lot. I would really like to go to bed and just sleep. I am getting really fed up with all this. I try so hard every day to just keep going. Is there anyone out there with a rational frame of mind, I just wonder what on earth am I supposed to do now? Chance of getting a dr. to come out and take a look is too close to zero, and i'm not too keen on that idea anyway. I cant in all honesty call 999, not an emergency, and if they come all they can do is cart me off to A&E, on a Saturday night. Oh no,no,no. I am not capable of putting a dressing on it myself either.
