Bariatric Downs…

I havent posted for a while. Six days and it feels like months ago, time goes very slow when you don’t feel your best. Sorry for the last photo! But anyway, after I was discharged I went on an outpatient waiting list. 6-8 weeks. Despite me saying how sick I was on the tube feed.Continue reading “Bariatric Downs…”

Anxiety arghhhh

I needed an Osteopath and my friend kindly recommended one for me, I tend not to see people who are not by recommendation; I’d never just chose someone at random my anxiety won’t allow it.

I always cried outside her door at night wishingContinue reading “I AM WALKING ON EGG SHELLS! AUTISM?”

Yesterday was X-ray day

Tomorrow is cancer specialist day. I’ve got to say though the staff at my GP surgery and everyone I’ve seen so far at the hospital has been amazing. Even got to keep my t’shirt on for the chest X-ray, phew! My husband drove me and came in, he asked about coming in with me tomorrowContinue reading “Yesterday was X-ray day”
