Good afternoon my dear friends,
I have been quiet for a couple of weeks as I've been a bit preoccupied on top of feeling like I've been done over with a Base ball bat. My darling mom-in-law had a bad fall and has broken a bone in her neck. Sounds worse than it could have been - apparently very common in the elderly if they fall but it it has really shook her up. We've been doing the 2oo mile round trip everyday (lousy M6) and I'm exhausted. I pretend to be fine and keep on going but today I've hit the wall. I look like uncle Fester. On a good note, I have my first appointment with the rheumatologist on Thursday morning and this where I need your help and advice my friends. (I have had to go private because on NHS, I had to wait to be put on the list and then it's approx 19 weeks) I don't know where to start. I'm afraid of getting a diagnosis and more afraid of not getting one! I know this is only the beginning but I've been down so many blind alleys - CFS, depression, hypercondriac...what do I say? Should I take a list or does that look a bit odd? Honest to god, I have a head like a sieve. Thank God B can come with me, I can clam up when I'm stressed.
I do read all of your posts when travelling - thank you for keeping me strong enough to keep going 😘 Attempting to cook a roast, so far: put oven on 😁 at this rate we'll be eating at midnight 😆😆😆
If you're reading this twitchy - glad the dinner party went well and lmao at expanding belt!!
Thank you all - you have no idea how much you mean to me.
