A little update to people who follow my challenging stay in the UK. I have found a therapist so Im tryong to process different things connected to my injury and surgery. It has been around 5-6 sessions and I see the direction of it which is good.
I also managed to negotiate a contract with my old company. If everything goes well, I will receive a computer this week, contract is already signed. This is good too.
As for doctors appointments etc, well, this one is difficult as I am being prescribed medications for everything. Recently I have been told by my neurologist (who kind of lost my trust after this comment) that lower back pain connected to dyscopathie can be managed only with anti-depressants! Seriously? Seems anything here can be cured with that. And I am not going for this. Period.
Will probably go back to a lovely chinese doctor who only smiles and nods his head but does what he knows best - needles and herbs. Thankfully I have experience with this from Poland and I was very happy with that before.
I am also using essential oils and it calms my mind. I even started to write again (if I can call that "start" after 2 A4 format pages written). I wanted to read some Jonathan Carroll books but to my surprise there is just one book of this author in the city. In Poland he is very popular, so I am surprised and a bit dissapointed as I realy wanted to read his book in original language.
I am also thinking of a new hobby I could invest myself in and thought of Djembe. Did any of you experienced that? Just worried about the neighbors.
Also, we have a long term plan with my husband of going back home, which makes me feel more optimistic about staying for the "time being".
Hope everyone is well and safe!
