    Hope today’s work is ok.

    There are lots of shortages at the minute, taxis, drivers, pretty much every industry is affected. 

    Do you know why your leg is throbbing? X
    September 2017 Debt = £25330

    Starting afresh.

    You can do anything if you put your mind to it. x

    Hope you get your leg sorted soon. I was really surprised when I got a referral to a hip clinic at the hospital the following week after visiting the GP…..that was before covid though.

    Work was ok, I did spend some of the day sitting with a patient who was intent on absconding, luckily the nurse looking after her was fast at running 😀

    I don't know what wrong with my leg, it feels like sciatic pain that also goes down the front into my knee and foot, when it's bad I'm having trouble walking very far but sitting down too much makes it hurt too unless I have it raised up above hip height 🤷‍♀️

    I won't get a referral for the hip clinic until they have exhausted all other treatment options. I cant figure out if the pain is coming from my hip or if it's referred pain from somewhere else 🤷‍♀️

    Work was ok yesterday,I spent quite a lot of time sitting down supervising different patients eating or who didn't want to be there so kept trying to escape. Luckily they paired me with a fit nurse so she did all the chasing 😀

    I had a GP phone appointment this morning and was actually still in bed when she phoned 🙀I'm liking the convenience of not having to go to the surgery and having an appointment from the comfort of my own bed 😂 she thinks it's sciatica as you can still get it without back pain,my back is feeling really good at the moment and is probably the only bit of me that doesn't hurt so I don't know 🤷‍♀️She is going to refer me for physio if the waiting list isn't too long,in the meantime I have referred myself to the physio at work and they can see me on October the 27th so I just need to wait and see what the GP comes back with before I decide who to go with, I suspect work will be quicker. I've just got to take ibuprofen and try to rest it when I can which is easier said than done

    Ive had a chilled day today just doing a bit of washing and taken B for a short walk. I've got to change my bed later and clean the bathroom but that's all the house stuff I'm doing today.

    Ive got SW tonight so will find out if I'm any nearer to losing my half stone. My home scales are telling me I've lost weight but I'm not sure I trust them so we will see

    Sorry I've been awol OBL. Good  luck for tonight at SW. I'm glad DGS1 enjoyed school. I had trouble getting taxis when DH was in hospital due to lack of drivers and walked home a couple of times (it only took me an hour and a half to walk!).
