Since my diagnosis 5years ago, i have never travelled alone. I have always been with my mum and son. But last weekend i had an associate weekend in london which i had already bought my ticket in February. My mum tried to talk me out of the trip because of my health and the latest happenings in London and manchester. I did go eventually and i loved it. I was the youngest to attend but all the others where btw 91-48. Some had walking stick, while so could walk unaided. I walk without my stick 4 awhile but when my hip began to hurt i had to use my stick.
Towards the end of the weekend my leg was swollen and i thought it will go down by monday morning but it stayed swollen that i was unable to fit into my shoe. So i wore my indoor slippers to travel back home. The good thing was that i booked for train assistance so the staff helped me at every stop. I felt to young (31) to be using all the help but the truth remains that i really needed the help. Got back home safe but in argony my leg in a bad state, my throat is very sore. So i have put my feet up and will do so for the rest of tbe day. I have an infusion tomorrow so i will show my doctor's my leg ( the left is more swollen than the right). All in all i enjoyed the trip it was calm and refreshing.
