October 2022 - Autumn has arrived!

October, and Autumn seems to have really arrived  with wind and rain! The early part of this month I felt very sluggish and tired, spent a lot of time in bed, I really think I have the seasonal blues!. Friday 7th: Had Nero as always during the day time, then in the evening had Cosmo and Harley, but before they arrived decided to invite Neil up to help me with them. Saturday 8th: Had a pain in my side when I woke up, it was there a little bit yesterday but only slight. Run Neil and the dogs over to his. In the evening pain was still there but worse, not bad enough to warrent phoning NHS111 or out of hours doctor. Sunday 9th: Feeling cold, and still have that pain, but it is easing. Monday 10th: Monday morning, start of a new week, same old problems. Back, neck and shoulders up to their usual thing, pain at a so-so level of 5 out of 10. I'm feeling cold and drained, but I must get the milk in though, so must summon up the energy to get out of bed! Tuesday 11th: The pain continues

The eye specialist's secretary phoned yesterday after I sent an email. I'm still down to be seen, but they have a slight backlog. Apparently when they operate on my bad eye is down to the health of the good eye.... Bloomin' stupid if you ask me. I again pointed out that it is affecting what I can do, and my enjoyment of life. I want to get out there and go for long drives and walks in nature and visit new places, but can't enjoy anything. I'm so fed up, I just want it done so I can enjoy my life again. I don't want to be living life with my left eye all a blur. It's really getting to me and dragging me down UPDATE - Monday 25th April: After an eye test and field vision test for the DVLA carried out at Specsavers in Swansea, have been cleared to keep driving and had my driving licence renewed!
