Hi all -- just found out that Florence Nightingale suffered Fibro symptoms in her later life -- how unfair is that -- she devoted her life to caring for sick and wounded patients -- only to be repaid in this cruel way -- so many of us have a "caring" personality -- we really do not deserve this!
Anyway today I am thinking "positive" and not only have I registered for the King's college study but I have just contacted my local University Medical school as they are looking for "volunteer patients" to assist with training sessions for their medical students -- I thought if they are made aware of this condition in their early training then hopefully they will understand it better (and even believe it exists!) when they become qualified doctors. I can choose what time i wish to attend and for how long and how often -- the students don't do any invasive tests (eg sticking needles in me!) but just listen to my heart, take blood pressure, do neurological tests etc. -- lets hope that my groans of pain when they touch my "tender spots" will leave a lasting impression on them!!! Does anyone else think this is a good idea?
I also decided to start writing my Xmas cards -- but have given up after about half-a-dozen when I started to FORGET the names of the relations I was writing them to!!
I am now going to make a "Malteser" cake -- this is an easy one to make coz it doesn't need any baking -- I know it has lots of chocolate in it --but don't forget the Maltesers have a "light" centre Hope I haven't completely BORED you all. Take care xx
