    Hi everyone. I'm typing this on a mental high! :) Just had a phone call from my little (well, he's 29...) bro who took my aunt to see the consultant this morning. We had been told it was for a scan but the consultant said it might be too upsetting for her. He did a blood test and has recommended that she go onto tablets. Woohoo! At last something is being done! Not sure which drugs, but he also advised my Uncle not to go back to work, or if he does have to go out to get a sitter. Not sure what this will do for my uncle's sanity but at least we now know she'll be safe.

    Weight has lifted for a little while ...... :)

    Hi widget, so pleased for you. You can only move forward now. Whilst there is no majic wand to take everything away, you must feel that you will now be listened to, and advised accordingly. Stay strong, Connie :)
