Bath. Been there and back again. That was yesterday for a few follow-up appointments. Lots of good advice and suggestions, an hour with the team psychologist, who has perfected the art of making me talk. At length. Then home. Absolutely exhausted.
Also in a great deal of discomfort because the doctor actually touched my leg. Very gently and briefly, but still.......... It has taken me nearly 2 years to de-sensitise it so I can touch it, but I have not done any work of any sort to enable anyone else to do so. So every nerve ending is on full alert and protesting, and is still in that state now, more than 24 hours later. My skin is crawling.....like a million live bugs and pins and needles all over it. Including my hair. You have NO idea. And the headache is beyond description. No sleep last night etc etc etc.
The rain is falling at the moment. Soaking the garden, so I don't have to do much watering today. This place has been filled with visitors all day and I have consumed more coffee than I have for weeks and that is saying a lot. I love my coffee. That could also have contributed to the head, of course. Such a delight.
And that is all I have to report right now. I am hurting and tired. But I have friends who are facing huge crises right now, and in comparison, I have nothing to complain about, and plenty to be thankful for. I go back again in 6 months. But I like Bath. It is a beautiful place, and the people I see are lovely, and if one does not lose the parking ticket and have to pay £25 as a result for parking for less than 4 hours, it makes for a lovely day out. No, I didn't drive - one of my friends came with me. Just as well, because I can never remember anything they say. There was something about Chi Kung classes........
