Y0u will have seen last week that we have altered the linky slightly, and renamed it Life After Lockdown. Where each Tuesday we will be answering a new set of questions and sharing how life has been the past week.
It is never too late to join, why not take part in the linky and add it to the linky on Sarah or Rebecca’s page which is linked at the bottom of this post.
1) How are you feeling/coping?
Very up and down at the moment, C had her Neurologist appointment on Thursday which was reverted back to a telephone appointment. She has agreed to try the injections for her migraines so just waiting on an appointment to come through.
As you may have seen in recent posts, I have been suffering lately, on Friday I had my third Dr appointment, this time an extended hours one. He was outraged that I had not had a face to face appointment and still suffering. All he could say was take paracetamol and speak to my Dr on Monday and if it gets bad go to A&E. Yesterday I rang my Dr, had this lovely Dr ring me, refused to see me to take swabs and gave me a number for the hospital, which would get me an appointment in two weeks. She has resent a scan request now marked as urgent and prescribed me new things to try.
Also, C’s education saga continues, I had an email saying that the co-ordinator had a meeting with the person taking over C on Friday. So me being me, emailed back with a host of questions I am trying to get answers for. I ended up having a lovely conversation and a few new things thrown in as well. We have a meeting this afternoon to meet her and discuss further.
2) What have you been up to over the past 7 days? Are you living life as normal, being cautious or still being very careful?
It seems to be very medical last week, and trying to deal with making sure C has her education in place for September. As I keep mentioning to them we only have a few weeks to go now.
The other day I was sitting working away, when my husband said did I fancy a Krispy Kremes. Never one to refuse, off we headed, returning with a mixed dozen.
3) What’s a helpful tip you would like the future to know about living in / or after a pandemic?
It is a very strange time, but how supportive people are to each other and how having your face mask and hand sanitiser became as having your keys and phone with you.
4) What tips do you have for others when out and about?
Be respectful, give space to others whether you choose to wear a mask or not, it is y0ur decision (unless asked), don’t worry about what other people are doing
5) What is your favourite post of the past 7 days (it could be yours or someone else’s)?
I think it has to be my review on My Picture.com as I love the items and the quality, but the smile on C’s face when she saw her artwork printed.
6) What have you been grateful for over the past 7 days?
My friends and family and Krispy Kremes
7) What has made you smile this week?
Pictures popping up on my Facebook Memories of the kids when they were younger
8) Anything else you would like to mention?
You may have seen my recent poll I started on Twitter and Facebook, about getting a Doctors appointment. It seems that it is getting harder and harder to see someone now, and they just go on what you tell them. I want to highlight this to my MP as I know it is not just my area or surgery. If you have not already seen the poll can I ask you to quickly click your answer
