It has been a stressful few days and I have learnt a lot from theme.

I am in hospital, I was admitted on Sunday afternoon. Easy you would think, but no, its me, so easy never really gets in.

The doc who admitted me didnt think I needed IVs, and so the last 48 hours, I have sat around, while they do nothing, waiting for them to make a descsion. By 5 o clock this evening, I had had enough of us wasting each others time. I already feel crap, I would rather feel crap in my own home, than stuck here.

My main reason for coming in, is to make my days easier. I know that treatment will make me feel better and by doing that, I can get more stuff done. There are things that need to be sorted and I am sat in here for no reason, unable to do what I want.

So this afternoon, I demanded to see a doc. Told them I was fed up. I packed my bag and told them to phone me when they have made a descision about my treatment.

Of course, within 10 minutes of that, I was started on the meds that should have been started Sunday night.

However, it took so much energy getting to that point, that now, even though I slept all day, I feel so exhausted. I have had to unpack my case, but I just feel wiped out.

We have a guy coming this week to fit a new cable tv service. This is on a plan I have organised. I have managed to reduce my parents bills and make sure that they get a decent survivce. I know this wont need any further touching for another 10 years. Just wish I had been able to help the last day or two sorting things.

But things are moving now. And though I know I am going in circles, as I am tired,, Hopefully this is the moves of something more powerful.

  1. Hi KIm, sorry to hear things are difficult for you, again. It's good to know that you have learnt tactics to get things "done" in hospital, as I know, even from my limited experience, that they need chasing up almost constantly.
    You should be there to rest, not do their job for them, but I suppose that's just the way it is.
    I really hope things improve again for you soon, so you can get on with other plans and travels, you seem so happy when you're planning a trip, it's obviously good for you.
    Thinking often of you. I have a chest review this afternoon, and CBT therapy this morning so I'm hoping to find time to post later . . . Hoping! Sending you love and best wishes x x
