Finally Post Op! 

By | August 21, 2017

Well, the first one of two anyway. At home, in bed and doing a very good impression of a cotton bud! Do you like the arrow? D finds it very funny and I’ve no doubt that it will be added to with some faces and flowers felt-tipped on in the next couple of days. It […]

What To Expect In A Pre-Operation Assessment #Pre-Op

By | August 16, 2017

With the date for my foot operation looming (Mon 21st August), yesterday saw me head to the Pre-Operation Assessment Unit for a check that all was well prior to next Monday. I have to admit it’s something that I was nervous about, not only had I been having really weird dreams that I’d be told […]

In Knots – My #WOTW 

By | August 8, 2017

I’ve managed to tie myself up into proverbial knots at the moment, this isn’t a worry about a particular thing but all manner of things as we approach my operation on 21st August. Upon waking every morning I don’t think “oh, it’s (say) Tuesday” or “wonder what the weather is doing”, it’s more of a […]

Getting the facts 

By | February 16, 2017

Beware, this might turn into a rant! I’ve been having to have monthly blood tests to check my liver function as I’m been on some totally yucky tablets for my nails.  They work though but, as getting blood out of me is troublesome, it’s not been pleasant. So, last week I went along and also […]

“Within Normal Range” – Sat 16th July 2016

By | July 16, 2016

That would be me, that was how I was described at a dermatology appointment this week.  I do wonder how individuals can be classed as “within normal range”, when there is no previous results for them.  I was also described as something else, but more of that later. Take iron, for example, the “normal range” […]

Jibby Jabby time – Tues 13th Oct 2015

By | October 13, 2015

“Jibby Jabby” is our name for injections here, I’m sure D’s monthly ones feel more Jabby than a light-hearted Jibby though. According to screamed headlines in the tabloids and (old wives tale here) the amount of berries on holly bushes, we are in for a bitter, long lasting winter.  I know a lot of it […]

A Diagnosis and Delay Survey from @CerebraUK

By | October 3, 2015

Below is a message from Cerebra which I received and wanted to share. We’ve had two experiences on going through the diagnosis experience for our children, one down the pediatric route (D) and one via CAMHS (T), one was considerably less stress-free and speedier than the other but this was probably due to the fact that T […]

Feeling better from within with Viviscal 

By | July 29, 2015

This isn’t a post I’ve been asked to write, nor have I received any free products – which is a shame because Viviscal isn’t cheap, but I know it will help me. In January 2014, I managed to damage all the nails on my right hand during the assembling of a trampoline.  Yes, I know […]

Worried – Sun 19th July 2015

By | July 19, 2015

I’ve been grateful for my little daily “happy” pill today, but it hasn’t stopped my stomach churning and twisting over a few things. I guess, without my “happy” pill, I’d have had a cry or two so that’s something, that I still have them.  I did talk with my doctor last week about having one […]

Not Fading To Grey – Sat 11th July 2015

By | July 11, 2015

What a strange title you might think. My little niggles about my wellbeing have become larger.  I’ve cried today and I haven’t done that in ages. The timing of afore-mentioned niggles couldn’t be worse because, with the school holidays looming, I need to see my doctor this week – or it will be September. Google […]
