well all ready for thursday for the scrutiny panel and my ten minutes of fame for local carers. done the bullet points to make sure i make the most important points. they talk about professional bodies recognising carers which has the usual list of suspects eg. doctors, social worker and i have added pharmacists after the trouble i had getting my weekly script delivered on the right day as im in affect housebound at the moment. in my own very small way, i hope to raise awareness of carers needs within my local city council.

thankyou MaNaAk im trying and i hope it makes a difference not just a talk shop which is all it does. things need to change. i think communication is at the heart of everything carers need to do the job easier

well today is Carers Rights Day today. im set for this interview bullet points done and in most important order. the carers scrutiny inquiry is tonight and ive smartened myself up even though they wont be seeing me. just wanted to show to myself i can do this. carers have enough to do, being the memory of my husband is hard enough with out having to deal with rubbish that is dished out as well. ive been up since 5-30am in pain again and cant even spell at the moment so see how many words i trip over later. i got my follow up pain appt not long before so its going to be a bit of an evening.

i will share a secret in the 80s i was a teenager tighter jeans were all that i was allowed
i am panicking a bit as the local carers have just sent through an email saying where to find all the information about carer identity so ive just reference their organisation as i reference alz. soc. as well as a source of information for carers. i was alright until they started giving information and now im having doubts of my own ability of my own ability. need to breathe and read the paper. look at the questionsw as well. i can only answer from my own situation. sorry im flapping and its easier to write and express it now breathe

no the physiotherapist that did the injection, said injection and operation not an option as injection didnt work or improve anything. they dont think they can do anything with my pain. i am referred for cbt therapy for the pain so dont know how thats going to happen and im still housebound so not helped. crushed the hope i was having
