4 days since my marathon trek to Bath for hydrotherapy & I'm still suffering! Since I got home, I've basically slept. When I'm awake I'm in so much pain that I've even considered suicide! It's taken this long to get a doctors' appointment, but I don't for one minute think She'll be able to help. I'm not generally depressed but I just can't bear the idea of spending the rest of my life like this.
I have to tackle the journey again on Wednesday as I have an OT assessment & I need that,but I've had to cancel further Hydrotherapy, the physio agrees that I'm just not up to it at the moment. I have Shibashi & Tai Chi lessons tomorrow but I'll give them a miss, unless I'm feeling heaps better (dream?) then I will do them seated.
A couple of rays of sunshine though, firstly adult services have agreed to reinstate my direct payments, so I will be able to employ a part time helper. It's only going to be 7 hours a week, but I'll be able to use them as and when I most need them.
The other good news is that there is a privately owned hydro opening in Frome later this month & I have been told that I will be able to use it. Dial a ride will be able to take me there, so there won't be any walking! Brilliant or what!
So all I have to do is ride out this flare, get a back - dated sick note from a GP I've never met & persuade DWP to give me my ESA payments back ,then deal with the DLA reassessment.. It's such an easy life, isn't it? It must be, after all, people keep telling me how well I look!
Oh the joys of Fibromyalgia!!!
