What a week! I had two games planned, the first fell through as a basing project was set to take way to long whilst the second was provisional on Andy having the time. Shame then that was the best part of the week. Been more than a little bit of a train wreck to be honest. First up my Doc handed over a sick note for 6 months and a diagnosis that I also have M.E., yep Yuppie Flu, I don't even own a car!!!! This means the likely hood of getting back into work anytime soon is errr , well it ain't happening! Explains why I am not getting better though as I need to change a fair few lifestyle things around and work against what I have been doing to get over the original condition, Brill! If that was not bad enough she also handed over new tablets to switch off the part of the brain that takes the signals from the nerves to help me start to sleep for over 2-3 hours at a time. Sounds good(and it is) but try walking when you can hardly feel your legs! Massive side effects and they spill over in to the day a little as I found out when I pitched over on my face in the kids school playground (honest I'm not drunk!!) Well at least it can't get worse, can it? (Marie don't read further!!!!) I have a new nurse to take my once fortnightly pint of blood, well she has done this stuff in Chemo loads but my procedure is slightly different and she was a bit flummoxed, first she forgot to check my blood results and take my blood pressure but then accidentally left the tap on too long and drew about 1 1/4 pints. So much that she had to clean excess blood off the floor LOL. Totally fazed she then took my forgotten blood pressure, yep you guessed it, from the arm she had taken the blood. Re-bleed time and boy did she blush. All said it was not a good visit and obviously I was rather wan after.
The one good thing is that I have managed to get plenty done on my Phalanx with just the varnishing and basing ahead of me. So it's not all bad and at the moment it seems that the only thing I can really concentrate on is painting so again I ask, can I get my figures on the NHS?
