Shall I laugh or cry !

Well folks cancelled my early morning appointment and rebooked for 3 today.

So I thought

Got there, went to book in , receptionist could not find me on system.

I was not happy with her so she double checked and said here you are, oh dear it was for 7th august ahhhhhhh no one available.

Went outside and told myself off , should I laugh or should I cry !! I could not believe what I had done ( well I can ) that's me all over !

But some good news, went up to 10mg this morning and I feel a lot better tonight!

And wait for it ..... I went Tesco and bought a tigerbread baton, Tesco finest applewood ham, double Gloucester cheese with chives, red onion, coleslaw with cheese in, and I put on my plate and by gum did I enjoy it !!! Then had a fresh peach.

That is the first time in a week I have fancied food ! ( still don't want a cooked meal though )

So after today's episode I have decided to take 10mg tomorrow again and see if pain goes completely!!

I feel so much happier tonight ! but if it comes back again tomorrow it will definitely be see doctor, but fingers crossed again .

Thank you everyone x

  • Hi Margaret,

    Think you have to laugh!

    Glad you've got your appetite back, hope it continues. Don't worry about having a hot meal, so long as it's balanced, a cold meal like you had, or sandwiches are just as good, according to some doctors. It's only in cold weather you really need a hot meal and/or drinks.

    Take care.

  • Hi Margeret1951,

    Well our mistakes get us out of the house for a bit😊 Your meal sounds fantastic glad you enjoyed it and are feeling better hope this continues tomorrow, a little of what you fancy does you good.

    All good wishes.

  • Hi CT,

    to be honest I do keep thinking about Doctors and laugh to myself, I always believe these things happen for a reason.

    Just look, I went Tesco and bought food !!! πŸ˜‚ and really enjoyed it !

    Hope tomorrow gets better still , that 2.5mg extra sure has made a difference thank God.

  • So you obviously need it.

  • Yes, no more suffering for me again !

  • Hi DorsetLady,

    I am such a dodo!! This could only happen to me lol

    But I feel so much better tonight and wished I never went a week with all that pain ! Hope tomorrow it all goes πŸ˜‡ that extra 2.5mg sure has made a difference with me .

    I still feel hungry ! And that's unusual so perhaps some more food πŸ˜‚

  • Just don't get carried away! Or you'll be up all night with indigestion.

  • I have omeprazole for my hiatus hernia lol just having cup of tea now for all today that went haywire. πŸ˜‚

  • Hoorah Margaret. That's more like it, keep it up ! :-)

  • Hi Mark, you lovely people on here really help me pull through .

    I have gone through a week of hell all on my own but regret not speaking up on here.

  • That's what we're here for, Margaret - all about 'Community' ;-)

  • Well the good thing is you weren't late for the appointment! Glad you were able to enjoy a feast.

  • I will give you an even bigger laugh, this is what I am like.

    About 6 years ago I had to travel to Barnet hospital for tests.

    Got there, handed my paper over, sorry you are a month early, right date and time though ! I felt a right Wally !

  • Yes I have had a couple of appointments I havnt been late for. Just like you I've gone at least a week early. You feel so foolish in the surgery. But it will get better as the brain fog diminishes. All good wishes

  • Hi Anne, glad I am not on my own lol I tell them it's my age lol

  • Is answer to your question..... Why LAUGH of course!!!!!!!! Pleased all's well that ends well Margaret.

  • Thank you Marilyn, I have not stopped eating tonight though !

  • That's good, given you were off your food previously. Pig out I say and enjoy! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„β€οΈπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  • You have to treat yourself sometimes. My.memory is complete mystery to me. Hoping brain dog clears...i am 56 with the brain and body of someone older..i best friend is 82 and likes doing things with me cos I walk at a pace she can manage. I can't walk uphill and she can't do downhill so we are pretty limited now.

    I plumb all appts into my mobile phone. I set alarms for 1 week before 3 days before 1 day before then 3 hours and the last one at an hour to leave time to park etc.

  • But better early than late then your attendance percentage stays up!!

  • Glad you're enjoying your food after not eating for such a long time! Glad also that 10 mg seems to be doing the trick - long may it continue!! Xx

    Made me feel hungry as I read your list!!

    Jackie xx

  • Hi Jackie,

    You must go Tesco and buy their Tesco applewood ham, it is really really lovely and that's what is making me eat again !

    Had it for lunch again on tiger bread, then some gaviscon because of the bread lol

    Not hungry again yet as it bloats you out but worth it !

    At least my depression seems to of gone after upping steroids, very pleased about that ! X

  • That's good news Margaret1951 x
