i said no,no,no
firstly a cute picture of some baby mallards, couldnt resist taking some snaps at MH today.
appt how did it go; got there in time, even found a parking space not too far from UCH. waited 45 minutes, didnt mind, i was seeing the top bloke prof g. was in the little windowless NHS consultation room for 30 minutes. Within that time we the prof examined my painful neck,wrists,asked me a number of questions, brought up on screen our private appt last year, a swiftly asked me would i like to go to rehab.
stanmore, north london, three weeks, due to the fact that EDS is a life-long condition, he wants me to learn pain management, physio so i can practise this at home. i nervously smiled, i found myself nodding before i could say anything, damn my pleasing side. i need pre-assessment to see whether im suitable, to see if funding will be given.
has anyone had this treatment? any tips or advice? my rational brain says its a good idea, i dont want to be on morphine at my age. am i a brave little thing, i will have to see, take it in my stride, one step at a time. rehab, i cant say no,no,no.
feeling pretty sick at the moment, hot, crappy, my ribs are moving about, strange feeling.
