thought that I would keep you updated on the 'cobweb saga'.
I saw the GP at 9am, feeling really awful, but she was really wonderful. She has agreed that I should not do anymore treks into Bath & has referred me for local physio, OT etc, then announced that I could increase my painkillers quite considerably, so why didn't anybody else think of that? She's also referred me to a local memory clinic and changed my stomach tablets which the other doctor ignored, even when the pharmacist contacted him about me. so all in all that was good.
However I had difficulty getting to the surgery because I felt scared on my scooter, even though its only across the road. I decided that I'd have to nip this in the bud before agoraphobia sets in again, so tried to go to a small supermarket - but just couldn't! I even thought about getting a taxi to Asda,as they have plenty of scooters instore to use, but I jjust couldn't make myself go.
Faced with very little milk, loo roll & even worse, chocolate, I decided to resort to doing an on-line shop. Well, I have done it, except I forgot the milk, but how come it took me longer than if I'd actually got the taxi. I've done it plenty of times when I was still with my husband but I think it must have been written in Latin - it just seemed gobbledegook! Goodness knows what will arrive. I printed out my receipt, well no, I printed out 4 pages of adverts, but no receipt or confirmation!
I made a decision though that I'm very happy with - I've asked my ex PA to come back to work for me instead of 'breaking in' a new one. I know that I'll be a bit more limited over her available hours ( she does another almost full time job) but I know that she's reliable (except she makes rubbish cups of tea!) so now she's happy & so am I, I feel a lot safer knowing that she'll be around.
Wow, no real moans today, I must have forgotten something.
Incidentally the lady from the advocacy service is phoning tomorrow so I'll let you know how that goes.
I hope that you've all had a reasonable day & are in good spirits
fibro hugs to you all xxx
