Hi All, had a pretty anxious week last week after the great non-operation debacle. My daughter got her date confirmed for the completion of her new house - I should be nothing but excited for her but I am struggling so much to manage financially that the worry of being without her little but of board is sending me into a tailspin, making me feel like a bad and selfish mother. As you can image, this is not helping the pain levels at all. Anyhoo, I had a talk to myself and decided I had to take charge this week and see my GP to try and get some movement on a proper diagnosis and I'd make a concerted effort to apply for any job I could physically do and worry about finding time off for my op and thyroid scan if the job starts before the appointments come through. Invited the brood round for a roast Sunday evening to start as I meant to go on. Was moments away from dishing up when my brother rang to say my mum had been involved in a fracas with a Polish chap at the care home, fallen and been rushed to hospital with a broken hip. I am under no illusion as to who started said fracas as tolerance and diversity are not her middle names and although dementia has ironically made her less abusive as a parent, it hasn't helped her social skills at all. So, instead of calling the surgery to arrange my GP appointment yesterday, I was finding out about mum. She was hopefully being operated on to fit a pin and plate so we were advised not to visit as she'd be out of it all day. I did manage to apply for a couple of jobs but not in the calm measured manner I'd hoped. More a slam in a cv and let them get on with it way. Today instead of applying for jobs I shall be enjoying mum's diatribe about what's wrong with all the other patients and staff on her ward at full volume - I am praying she's been put in a side room on her own but fate is playing dirty at the moment so I'm not holding my breath. Tomorrow my lovely boy is coming round for a reflexology treatment as he's going through a tough time and I'm trying to support him wherever I can so it will be some light relief but still no application time. Am beginning to think I'll be forced to sell my body :0 !! x
