HI,I hope that everyone is as well as they can beand here i am again, a bit low but ready to carry on. I've had a sort of flu type bug that wont go and its driving me mad! Also I've had so many hospital appointments that I thought I should take my bed! :wink:
I do feel a bit fed up and don't want to do much and my aches and pains seem to be going round in circles! Last week I went to: Neuro twice, the hand clinic in plastic surgery, and my own GP. Also had to take my husband to have a mole looked at, which has to come off, but they think its innocent. I hope they are right. I'm so tired and my nerves seem shoot to pieces. We also had an emergancy visit to the Docs, when my husband , pruning one of the trees, got wood in his eye and scratched the cornia. He was lucky, it missed thd the lens, but had to have it cleaned and antibiotics!!! I think thats all!
Love Sue

    Hi Sue

    We were worried about you as you had not been on the forum and a thread was started asking if anyone had heard from you. We worry a little, you know, when the regulars suddenly stop posting for a while. :smile:

    Sorry to hear you are a bit down but not surprising when you have had this bug you cannot shake off, attending many appointments and your husband getting into mischief and harming himself.

    Look after yourself

    Oh dear woodbon, I think we can all empathise with the never-ending circles of appointments, pain and frustration, we're all in it one way and another! It's nice to have you back, keep in touch because if we don't know what's going on we can't help - and helping is one of the greatest strengths of this forum, well, that's what I think. DD

    Hi, Thank you all so much for worrying and I'm very sorry not to have dropped you all a line. It was so tiring everything happening at once and so many different things to remember! Its a wonder I didn't turn up at the wrong place and wrong time, but I just about managed!!! :wink:
    I feel so tired now but, at least most of the people I saw were kind and helpful.
    The Gynecologist arranged a second ultra sound to see if the cyst had changed, and they did that the next day, they say its the same size, which, I hope is good. :smile: Now I've got to find out what they want to do, if anything. As most of my pain is from my neck, so hes referring me on. I feel like one of those people with Munchhousen (sorry, spelling must wong!)
    Enough of self pity, doom and gloom! Thank you all and hope we all get some nice spring weather soon to help!!! :smile:
    Sorry to write so much, Lots of love Sue.xxx

    Hi Sue

    Good to see you back but sorry to see everything has been a bit overwhelming lately to put it mildly! No wonder you are exhausted with it all. Really hope things improve for you soon and that things seem a little brighter. Take care of yourself.
