I visited my doctor today and explained how I was and that I need a letter from her for benefits appeal. I was upset and shaking because havent had usually meds all weekend, and felt ill, but she did state on a sheet that I was limited to 20 metres walking and I found it difficult washing dishes etc and she included some history of my visits. I was surprised to see how many times I had been diagnosed with depression, going back over 20 years or so. But I know my pain is real. I had to wait round for almost an hour before I saw her as well, and I had go out to my car to put another ticket on it, I had to drive had no one to help me today and I know I shouldnt really, but I take it easy. The time I came out of the surgery after blubbering and letting her know how bad I felt, she still passed Fibro off as a last resort thing, I felt annoyed about that, then I got out to the car 15 mins late to find a parking ticket on it. Aargh. sat in car for about 20 mins upset then got home and my head was spinning and I threw up and lay on the bed waking up some 3 hours later. I do feel better now, but I've got a headache and my right wrist is killing me, Im sure its the typing on here, since I found this site, I cant shut up!!
