hi all, just a quickie as I've got to get to bed early - got GP appointment at 9am!
Been a bit better today, got my letter from Atos, but still not clear whether its for ESA or DLA, but I heard back from the advocacy service & they think that they will be able to help me, so I'm feeling slightly less stressed.
Friends took me out for coffee this morning, this was my first outing since my OD, it felt a bit weird but I am glad that I went.
My former PA (the one who came to my rescue) has asked if I'd like to give permission for her to act as a ????? can't think of the word, but so she can speak to the GP etc on my behalf as I'm alone here. I think it's a really good idea - she's very pro-active & level headed, just what I need. I wish that I could re-employ her as my PA but her other job would mean that she would be restricted to only one day a week with me & I've been told that I really need a few hours 3 or 4 times a week, so I don't know what to do. I trust her totally & we get on well, so maybe one day with her would be better than a few little bits with someone else? Hmmm
One bit of good news too, my divorce is set for Nov 9th, as it's uncontested it's just a formality now. It's sad that it went wrong but I'm so relieved that it will soon be over. We just need to sell the house now!!!!
Anyway I'm off to make a hot drink & toddle off to bed. I've had a few dreadful nights lately, so I'm hoping to sleep well tonight.
Bedtime hugs for all my fibro friends xxx
