Gosh it’s been a tough old couple of weeks if I am being very honest what with my health problems getting me down. Most days I have been in pain one way or another and what with being in hospital last weekend. The thing is my depression hasn’t been too bad lately although when things like this happen it can start to drag you down. I am having to take painkillers most days and I try my best to take as little as possible these days but have to if I’m in pain. The good news is, it’s a week on Monday when I finally get to see the Neurologist about all of my symptoms and hopefully he will be able to help me find some answers. The problems started as early as September 2011 with the first attack on numbness in October when I first saw a different Neuro. I am seeing the top man this time, so I am told, I was offered an appointment only 2 weeks earlier but it wasn’t with the one I am going to see this time. I decided to wait as a friend of mine had a Neurological illness and recommended this doctor and explained that he was the top one of the hospital. Also she had a good experience with him and told me how good he was and considering the first one let me down and discharged I am glad not to be seeing him again. I would have only given him a piece of my mind as I was really upset and I didn’t even get my follow even after chasing his secretary.
Today the sun is shining, which has also cheered me up a bit and also my back is not hurting like it was yesterday so onto a better start. It’s my nephew’s birthday today so need to go out and get him a present, it’s also my Dad’s on Sunday so need to get something for him also. It’s my sister’s wedding next Friday so I am hoping to be well enough to go to that and then take their present’s along there. I haven’t seen the family for a while either so it will be nice to see everyone for the day so it’s fingers crossed that I will be ok.
I have been in touch with an old buddy of mine from year’s ago, we met up a couple of times recently and he really seems to cheer me up. We get on like a house on fire and have a good bit of banter and he message’s me most days to see how I am doing. The one I care for has been a nightmare most of the time lately so it’s nice to have someone cheer me up. I mean what with everything else that’s going on for me I really don’t need any further hassle or stress but the one I care for doesn’t seem to consider that. Still had a nice chat with my old buddy last night and that cheered me up some more and it’s nice that he always messages me to see how I am doing. It’s just nice to have something in my life at the moment that make’s me smile for now………
