Was feeling fairly cheerful this morning despite being in such a muddle.
I had my deep tissue massage this morning, which is the highlight of my week as it is lovely to have expert hands working on all the painful, tight muscles. I'll probably feel like I have been kicked all over by a horse tomorrow but then, once that feeling has worn off, my muscles feel a bit looser for a couple of days until they start to tighten up again.
We then walked our dogs in the muddy fields and, having had some fresh air, I felt fairly reasonable, although I did manage to smash my head on the car door which has given me a headache!
The post had arrived whilst we were out. There were a couple of nice cheery red envelopes containing Christmas cards..... and then I saw it...........the dreaded DWP brown envelope. I knew it would have to arrive one day!
I felt sick when I opened it. It is telling me that I'll get a call in a couple of weeks to ask me some questions about my health. For a start, I hate talking on the "phone. I find it very tiring holding the phone to my ear and often get pins and needles and numbness if I am on the "phone too long.
Then, apparently, the dreaded questionnaire will be sent out. No doubt that will be about 50 pages long!!!! The sight of a questionnaire is enough to send me diving for my duvet! Then I think it says I may be called for a work assessment interview or perhaps it says I will be called. Not sure because I only read it once and then passed it to my husband.
So that is something to fret about over Christmas. I am a born worrier, unfortunately.
Does anyone have any advice to give me? Should I make an appointment to see my GP just to let him know that this assessment is looming? I hate going to the Dr as well. I get so nervous that sometimes I sit and shake. If I am really bad I may s*it and sake!!!! lol...still got a sense of humour!
Reminds me of a joke....What is the difference between a bad marksman and an owl?
The archer shoots and shoots and can't hit and the owl hoots and hoots and can't s**t ! Hope that is not too rude for some of you.
Anyway.........my mind has gone into overdrive. I shall now be worrying myself sick about this, just when I thought I may be able to start to relax, since I am not having to look after anyone else this Christmas.
Can anyone cheer me up please? I'd be very grateful. I know we are all in the same boat or at least similar boats. It is very much "all of us" against the "powers that be".
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can be bothered to write to me.
