Thought you could all do with a positive blog at this time as I know a lot of you are having problems withthe stress of the festive celebrations and the current bad weather conditions.
Found out my daughter is to have a baby next summer she has been reticent in making this news common knowledge as she had a miscarriage last June at 11 weeks, however she has now let everyone know the good news. she is due next June and has had scan and ha sante natal appt tomorrow. Seeing the babies heartbeat last week at the scan has been really positive.
Since I retired in March I have had a lot of stress with house refurbishment supporting her through the miscarriage, her wedding and frail and unwell parents and I am sure that this had an effect on my health.
I had 6 months sick last year with stress and to be honest I had been the victim of bullying for the preceeding year which I am sure contributed to me being ill. I also wonder if this may have contributed to my recent illness and ther are 2 other members of staff who have auto immune diseases who worked in the same area as myself. I was a manager in that area which had been drastically understaffed for 8 years and as environmental factors are thought to be linked to autoimmune diseases it makes me wonder if there is a link.
Now I have had a moan things are now looking up. I am now settled in my New Home since the work haas been done, my daughter is happily married and about to extend our family and my health has improved although that is only since I had steroid injection 6' weeks ago, I am hoping it lasts and that I will be well for when my grandchild arrives in the summer.
Hope you all have a good xmas and are relatively painfree
crisxx gentle hugs to you all
