Well Auntie died, I am packing at the moment to go to Scotland tonight for the funeral tomorrow. Mum in law now installed with carers four times a day, and people to take her on days out. Katy starting the final revision push for baccalaureate exams in May/June . Still got heavy snow here so will be hard till we get to the main roads.
I have had a worse flaring session but Sunday there was a caravan show here so my oh and his friends and kids all decided to go. So caravan one they pushed and pulled me up the stairs, no mean feat for me , to turn around and promptly fall out. Iron stairs and me went flying face first, large bottom in the air, crutches flying, into the next van! So ice packs and hospital visit to check my foot, ankle, knee and worse my recently operated neck! And amazingly everything seems ok, nothing broken, sprained only, and he said it might take up to six weeks to recover! But he kept saying,so you were in a caravan, I said yes, you fell out the door? Yes, what time? 4 pm? You live in Stokesley? Yes? It then dawned on me he was making assumptions that I lived in our local gypsy site, had been drunk and fallen out of the caravan!!!
I was angry at this I don't know if it was racist or anti gypsy or what! I said no I am disabled and find it impossible to do steps, and was at a caravan Show! His face changed immediately and he started to laugh, that really annoyed me. Anyway he said something interesting when I said I had RA, he said that would make the pain of a strain worse. Has anyone else heard this.? Oh well never rains but it pours in this house, my friends are all killing themselves laughing saying, it could only happen to you! Hee Hee.
