I haven't been on this site for several days, by the time I think about getting on here, my eyes close & it's sleep time, whether I want to or not!

I am so tired at the moment but I think it's mainly because the GP increased my meds again,

I take 3 x 150 pregablin as well as duloxetine. I think that, combined with my amitryptiline & heart + cholesterol tablets & various other things to make me rattle, they knock me out. I sleep for hours but still feel like death in the mornings. Some days I drag myself into my living room & just sit - no toilet or drressing, not even a cuppa, I feel an absolute slob but can't do anything about it.

But the main reason I wanted to write a blog was to tell you all my news.......................

The day before my assessment was due I get a phone call from Atos to say that they won't need to assess me because my gp's letter told them all they need to know - yipee no 'orrible assessment!!!!

Oh Dejavous - I think Ive already told you! so,skip that....

Next news, a couple of days ago a letter arrived. Top rate DLA on care & mobility indefinately!

Then We received an offer on our house.

To add to this my flat tenancy has been given the go ahaed, I move next month on the 14th.

The day after that my eldest son & partner are coming with my lovely grandaughter & are taking me out for the day.

Then a few days later my brother is driving up to collect me to spent xmas with their family & children.

Even practical things are happening....

I had 1hr of hydrotherapy in a new hydro pool in this town - bliss

I've had my memory test & am seeing a neuro prychologist on Monday,

The OT have organized for me to get some aiids & they are beig fitted tomorrow.

There was something else too but it's gone out of my head

But what a run of good luck! Things had been dreadful now they have done a complete turn about. I can hardly believe it!

I feel s**** & my feet are so painful that I can hardly stand, but nothing can wipe the smile off my face!

Sorry to all of you who are having a tough time but maybe your luck will change too. It CAN HAPPEN!

Love & hugs to all of you & thankyou for helping me through such a horrible time
