Yesterday at 15:21 I received the good news that I have been accepted under the "Access to work" scheme to be able to get a taxi to and from work, which will make one hell of a difference to my quality of life. At the moment it takes me 2 buses and 2 hours to get to work and in the winter months it can be very painful bringing on Raynauds attacks and making all my joints hurt. Getting a taxi will take 20 minutes door to door :). Then at 16:30 (after an urgent re-call back to the GP), I was told that I have an enlarged liver and spleen. The doctor thinks it could either be a viral infection, medication related (I have in the last 2 months had my Pantaprozole, for acid reflux increased to 40mg twice a day), gallstones, or a lymphoma. I have got to have more blood tests done on Monday morning and be referred to the Haemotology department at the hospital. So in the space of 2 hours I went from being Happy, Happy, Happy, to feeling very anxious with all sorts of different scenarios going though my head. I normally cope with things in a positive way, but somehow this has got to me. I live on my own and don't have many people that would really understand what I am going through, hence to reason for my thoughts being posted here. Thanks for listening, have a good weekend everyone xx
