  2. A trip to the GP

  3. Day 6, Cycle 3

    by , 01-11-2012 at 10:02 PM (My Friend Screen)
    Today I am not well again. I didn't get out of bed until 1.30pm apart from constant trips to the loo. I was in a lot of pain and did take paracetamol and tramadol which helped relieve it. I am absolutely exhausted and can hardly type this blog tonight - hence it will be very short. It will pass. I comfort myself knowing that I have only had 2 periods of really bad times - the first when I was in hospital and now.

  5. Getting out of the house...

    Can anyone share ideas on how to get Mum out of the house, even when she refuses point blank to get too out of chair let alone step foot out of the door!. Have tried making it fun to the point of saying do it for us! Any ideas welcome and if I'm putting this question on wrong area of this forum, point me in the right direction seeing I'm a Newby! Lx
