beneath the weather

i have a headache. just took a paracetamol. tired, eye bags, red spot on chin, humming along to 'the hills', cuddled up to little dog, cold, dah-de-dah-de-dah.

your getting the drift of my mood.

the appointment at kings went ok. this was the one i was dreading the most. i spent three hours, yep three hours in a small room, having white lights flashed into my eyes, watched black and white checks dance a gig across a computer screen, had to sit up ( urgh!) . the bit i was apprehensive about wasnt too bad, i had gold leaf ( yep real gold) placed on my lower inner eye lids, wires came out and was taped to my cheeks. cope-able. not a problem. the technician that carried out the procedure had an attack of tachycardia herself a while back, and had an autonomic function test ( i had one in august) so we got on fine, chatting which passed the time incredibly quickly. also she was going to put some drops into my eyes but was unsure whether or not it would make my heart beat too fast, so she declined. thank you. although she said i might have to come back if the docs said they would be ok to put in.

i have an appointment with the consultant next wednesday, so im hoping all the test results will be back and i will be enlightened on my condition.

feeling a bit beneath the weather today. hoping i will pick up soon.

I would feel a bit beneath the weather too, if I had gone through what you went through.

I hope that you feel a bit better tomorrow & that you'll get good news on Wednesday.

Just popped in to say am thinking of you today for your hospital appointment. My words are not working today and keep re-reading last sentance and it doesn't get any better but the sentiment is true nevertheless. Take care Alice.
