had a humdinger of a headache this week, it was black-out curtains shut, no painkillers i would of only brought them back up, flannel on head, stayed still for three hours, then it eased. thank goodness.
the next day being an appt at kings, oh i hear you say not another one. i completed the required pedal on the exercise bike, with mask over face, electrodes on chest, with a friendly dutch lady willing me to 'open you eyes', i felt nauseous, out of breath, chest pains, hot, but i did it so hoping that i will get the results in january, when i see the consultant.
rosie is fine after the jab. although she up-chucked in the car, guess who had to wipe it up, mmm yours truly. poor little mite, shes ok now.
thinking of applying for physio, my shoulders ache, my joints the past few years seem to be more lax than normal probably due to inactivity. i was advised by prof g in april but due to the pots being unstable i said that i would wait. maybe its time to go for it.
as i only have two appts in november (so far) im thinking of crashing my fears. top of my list are three well avoided appts.
1. dentist, i have a confession, i havent been since sept 1993, before you all go errrrr, the very lovely dentist wanted me to have all four wisdom teeth out, ohhh far to much for my delicate self to handle. i havent been back since. they arent in bad nick, so i think i would definitely need a couple of fillings, a bit of a clean and maybe the removal of the dreaded wisdom teeth.
2. haircut, again sept 1990, a few months after what i now know was a p.o.t.s attack i was sitting in the salon, pulsing heart, sweat dripping feeling nauseous, i promised i wouldnt go back and didnt. twenty years later a lovely friend of the family has offered her services so all i need to do is give her a call. i did a linda mccartney in the past twenty years, cut if myself.
3.is a little bit kinder, reflexology. three years ago i went to see a reflexologist to see whether she could help with my anxiety. it didnt really but was a well spent hour. shes an interesting lady, my feet warmed up, which i think would be beneficial right now.
will i be brave enough? i will report back on the occasions if i dare to try.
