We have made it through another week, and as we struggle through Friday (it is struggle through for me today), and look forward to the weekend. I share the ups and downs of the Menopause. For me just lately it is temper and emotions. How ae you finding things?
You have all heard me moaning and talking about my broken front tooth, which happened way back during lockdown 1. Today I am having that tooth removed, and will now have to start to wear dentures which for the past few weeks I have been having fittings for.
During my appointment last week, my dentist advised that she may not be able to get the root out as well and may have to refer me to surgery (eek). I did advise that since pregnancy with C (and probably all the problems I had), my very strong and healthy teeth have gone from very strong roots to my teeth giving up on me. She said that I may end up losing my teeth as they start to crumble. Although I was told this 18 years ago, I came home and cried my eyes out.
I have been going through quite an emotional time, and at times there is just no reasoning with me. My poor husband has ended up just listening to me go on and on, and then once I have calmed down a bit. He comes in with all the practical views.
Some of you would have seen my post the other day about trying to see your GP. This is my current topic that is fuelling my emotions. I can not let this drop and speaking to others we are not alone in being let down. I am so lucky that my parents have helped and we went privately. If we had not then we would still be fighting to get C seen. This has to stop, when will being refused an appointment even by the GP lead to something more serious. We need access to our surgeries, I actually think it was easier seeing our GP during the first lockdown.
What I have been loving this week
Hand sanitiser has become our new normal now, when we enter a shop or restaurant. Reaching to our bag or pockets just to clean our hands. I have been using Ocean Free hand sanitiser at home and on the go. Giving me that sense of security.
I feel that I have earned a wind down or two, and have been enjoying a glass of Mermaid Gin, on an evening. Just gives me time to relax. I am looking forward to getting together with friends and trying a few cocktails.
How has your week been?
