As some of you know i went off line just before xmas as i moved house . im now finally back on line and this is my update.

House is lovely and we have heating :grin: , were all settled in well. i had a lovely xmas with all the kids home. son is still in uk although he did go to jordan before xmas and just made it back because of the weather. ordered a new cooker as i didnt have one when i moved, that finally turned up on xmas eve so we were concidering micro meals for xmas day :lol:
My first ESA medical just before xmas was cancelled and i didnt find out untill i got there. they resceduled for early jan, that was cancelled last minute and then i should have had the medical yesterday and they phoned and cancelled just before i arrived :shock: , im starting to get a complex now :???: :lol::lol::lol:

arthur has been very unkind latley and the last dr i saw informed me i was.........get this......To young to have arthur and to suck it up :roll: despite proof of xrays specialists etc, needless to say i reminded him that even in his field they have to do update training just like i had to in the caring field and i thought it would be a very good career move to do a couple of courses, 1 in arther as he obviously knew **** all about it and 1 in compassion as he had missed that part out in training first time. then i left leaving him in no doubt as to what a pr*t i though he was and as ive just moved i am regestering with another dr this week. argh!!!!!!!! i do remember pointing out the letters before and after his name do not spell god or know it all.

opps :wink: so im still here still in pain and still awaiting battle with ESA How is every one else doing ive missed so much whilst away

    Hey coco, it's good to hear from you again, I have been wondering how things were going. What is that prat of a doctor on about? I know GPs cannot remember everything but he must be aware that arthritis can strike one at any age - what a banker (you get my drift, I am sure). I hope the new one is a little more empathetic and that you get some clarification on it all soon. As for the ESA, well I have not yet trodden that path but those that have will reply, I am sure.

    It's really good to have you back. DD

    Hi Coco,

    nice to see you again and glad you like your new home.... shame about the doctor though..... plank eh?!

    Well done for putting him in the right place and hope he takes your advise and read up at least about arthritis.....he is seriously a plank... total plank!

    we should have a name and shame forum :wink: mind./...... we'd also have to have a I've been sued forum cus now a days...... you can't say anything with out it backed up in triplicate :roll:

    Hope you will soon get the results ans they will start to really help you and get rid of some of the pain.

    hey glad your bot was home for Christmas :grin: Cris xx

    Hi Coco,
    It’s great to hear from you. So glad that you got yourself settled. It was a close call with the cooker delivery!!!
    Lovely heating at last, bliss. :grin::grin: Good luck with your new doctor as it certainly will be an improvement on the last one.
    I cannot help with the ESA thing but it not right that they can mess people about like that.

    Welcome back Coco, glad that you sound like you are setting into your new home... Some bloody doctors eh? Don't you just feel like smacking them in the mouth......?!
    I had the same problems when I was younger and even at the tender age of, ahem, forty two, you can just tell by some peoples reactions what they are thinking....

    Stay happy though Coco..
    Will be on pocket duty on valentines day.. Will bring tetley tea and jammy dodgers for all. And some pg tips for our Del..
