Hi, im attempting to write a post again (2nd attempt) Im totally new to this.But i cant find any advice on working. I am a Self Employed Driving Instructor. My APS has dragged on for nearly 2 years, but my Drs and Neurologist dont seem to know much about it. The only reason they found out there was something wrong was me constantly going back to the Drs giving them a list of symptoms. Each time they would take blood tests, and each time they were coming back wrong. But until a Locum Dr sent me for further tests and scans ( 4 months later ) They then found out i had, had 3 Tias and 1 Stroke. So i then had to have Lumbar Punctures , they then decides i had APS. But i have seen the Neurologist " several" times , he has put me on Warfarin. But my INR at present varies from 1.4 - 2.1. But nobody seems concerned, all im told when i query it is " as long as its between 2 and 3 " I went to the Neurologist last week which confirmed my thoughts about my local Medical Experts . Apparently the aches and pains are just in my head, his words were " if you think about your bum, when you are sitting on it, then you can feel it " He asked if i was still working and seemed suprised when i said i am going to have to quit my job. I have no confidence,memory loss,repeating myself etc etc. Which i dont think is really any good what so ever, for teaching.
Do other readers think i should stop teaching totally. At present i have 5 pupils that have their tests booked for this year. But i am unable to handle the stress and hassle of a New Driver. I tend to only teach one or at the most 2 pupils a day on a Part time basis now,and it leaves me exhausted.
I live in the North of Scotland.
