Spread The Word

Nothing much to say about easter eggs and bunnies and happy families . But as someone who has seen so many families and lives destroyed by the Government in their disability cull . Read this ...its not fake news , its not written by a biased press, its just someone who has to live without a future .
Spread the word , this is the reality of life today in the UK

Well it is very drippy out there .  So what have we been up to in the world of scrouging this week
We went to see the lovely wizard at Sheffield Hospital a nightmare of a journey due to roadworks . Then a case of pensioners paying dodgems with their mobility cars in the disabled parking , its great when your having to separate a pair of  stick wielding old duffers who really had just scuffed a bit of paint off their mobility cars as their wives look on in horror .  It was all on the security cameras so why they were having a go beggars belief ...Its a man thing
 Only to get in there and find out only half the lifts were working and it took 40 minutes to get Mr and his wheels up to the top of the building , the Hallamshire has not a lot of lifts and its a huge tower block of a building , so we were 10 minutes late for his appointment , didnt matter as there was a big sign saying the clinic was running at least an hour late , but Mr has been going on and on  ever since how hes never late for anything and it was all my fault ???
But the sort of good news is that they are discharging him for the time being , there are lots of little indications of abnormality but nothing adds up to a diagnosis except of what he hasnt got , no more tumours found, hes not had another stroke and hes not having seizures which was the main concern . It appears he may have some weird form of migraine with aura which may be linked to his heart problems as well . So she cleared him to drive and doesnt want to see him again unless anything else major goes wrong .
You would think this would cheer Mr up but hes down in the dumps , although hes cleared to drive hes terrified to do so and he says physically he knows he would struggle most of the time . Hes also facing the fact that his days on 2 wheels are over and i think this one is whats getting to  him , hed rather resigned himself to the fact that the Neurologist would find something dire and he could eventually be free from the endless pain , its a little bad that a long unhealthy life is something to put you back into depression on a grand scale .  Lots of fishing and oranges and sunshine needed .

I have gone back to my old ways and had to rescue this little Edwardian school book . it was lonely and unloved

Mr Motivating

Im here still dragging on with the after effects of the stinking virus, just have a cough and snot still , but annoying me no end , oh and ive pulled something down my side that feels like ive nettled myself day and night...bizarre , but then ive always been strange that way .
Other half is still laughing how he managed to buy a car when i was ill , we picked it up Saturday morning just before Snowmageddon hit , I do see the argument in some ways , we had to spend the back payment fairly quickly or be penalised for having it , the car is ex mobility and comes with a hoist to enable me to get his spazzy chariot in and out of the boot .  But I just dont get the whole modern car thing , its all very Starship Enterprise , very pointless gadget ridden and a million controls for the sound system . He says im just an old dinosaur and need to move with the times
Next week were back at Sheffield Hospital so i guess we will see if it likes the motorway , Mr goes back to see neurology and get a verdict on whether he can drive again or not .  I think hes vaguely accepted that he probably wont be doing , I just wish they would make theyre minds up one way or the other .
Then he gets a phonecall from a strange mumbly little indian doctor to say theyre now referring him to Hull spinal after 2 years of doing bog all at Lincoln, hes had countless steroid injections into his spine and pelvis all they achieved was to give him headaches for weeks on end , now they say it could be something to do with a benign growth that he has in the inoperable part of his spinal damage , we think theyre clutching at straws but apparently Hull may be able to embolise it , to see if it does any good . Sounds like fun .
On the heart problems , theyre still baffled , they cant find anything wrong with his heart despite him having every test under the sun but the fact remains that it keeps skipping beats, hes just got to wander round with his spray and dial 999 if in doubt .
This makes Mr Bah Humbug sound like a total physical wreck , but hes gimping about as usual , hes a very overweight moth eaten Ewok , though changing his drugs has meant hes lost 2 stone you cant tell , hes much more lucid with this new chemical cocktail though hes in a lot more pain and can only manage walking with his crutches for a few yards at the moment , what he needs is loads of sunshine and a days fishing , hurry up Spring !!

All Snotted Up

Forgive my break due to ill health, I ended up once again with the snot virus from hell , a real sleep 20 hours a day and wander round the house like something from a 50s horror movie  , in fact i now have wonderful infected sinuses and difficulty moving as ive coughed so much . So im just wandering round like the Wrath of God at the moment , wondering why nothing appears to have been done in the house for over a week !!! and struggling with the decision of who to kill first....its a hard choice . 
The one moaning because hes got no clean socks or the muppet who never thought to take the mouldy batch of towels out of the washer ?  People who moan because Im not available for the school run or childcare ?
My current favourite is my OH who has just now informed me because im up and about now , hes booked to go and look at a car tomorrow at Hunstanton , he cant drive and ive just tried to demolish the gatehole while having a coughing fit , hes a bright bugger bless him
