Oh now - how horrible for you. These people don't have a clue how much rides on these decisions do they? Hope it works out for you this Tuesday. X

Thanks Tilda, your dead right, they have no idea how we feel physically and mentally and how dependent we are on their decisions. Hope you are ok x

I'm in a state of panic Vonnie because I have rheumy apt today preceded by DAS and everything seems to have gone meltdown overnight with pins and needles everywhere and raging hands and feet. Not just pain but pricking. I have the last appointment today and then other stuff on straight afterwards so a lot riding on today for me too. Wish me luck! Xx

So sorry Tilda, i have only just picked up my emails now.

Not nice that your symptoms have gone into overdrive and you have had a lot happening today.

By now your appointment will be well gone, i hope everything went as well as could be expected and are feeling somewhat better..xx

Vonnie I am so sorry it is such a terrible thing to be waiting and then they just let you down. I am experiencing the waiting game too and can understand your frustration and anger at the absolute disregard the health systems show patients. I hope you hear soon and don't have to wait much longer.

Hi someonesmother, thank you for understanding, it's no joke this waiting game as you say.

I hope you won't be waiting too long either, this just adds to the stress we are already are experiencing, causing more pain.

Hope you are ok xx

Thanks Vonnie - no worries. My appointment was the last of the day and I had to stay out and attend a long choir practice for a concert day on Sunday. I will post soon when I've recovered my energies and thoughts - good luck for Tuesday and the phone call. Thinking of you. Xx
