Who would have guessed that one simple word ' Help' on my last blog post would have brought out so many kind people to offer suggestions, tried and trusted remedies and just plain sympathy for my situation. Heartfelt thanks go to all of you who responded with alacrity ((HUGS)) to you all.
Today is the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week and the byword is KINDNESS.
We all need it, especially now with the current situation. We need it and we need to pass it on to others. Bloggy friends share it in bucket loads, thanks so much! I found it again on Friday when I couldn't bear feeling so ill any longer and yet again rang the GP's surgery. This time a wonderful kind, caring and competent lady GP took me seriously. She listened carefully and decided to get some extensive blood tests done as well as another poo test (yuk!) in order to rule out anything 'nasty' (her words, not mine) as well as prescribing some hydro cortisone ointment containing a little anaesthetic to put on the sore bits. After just a few days I feel somewhat more comfortable at last and can at least sit on a pillow! My blood test is booked for tomorrow morning. Only one local hospital is doing it to try to limit the risk of Covid and I have an exact time to go to limit exposure.
To try to calm down my IBS I refuse to watch / read about the virus during the day, limiting my interest to the 5pm DOOM bulletin. I dare not turn on the radio either so am listening to music on U-toob on my tablet. On there I found Stjepan Hauser who plays cello so beautifully and with such feeling it takes my breath away. Do try to find him....
This morning I can hear that the builders are back on site and the banging and hammering are such welcome sounds after 2 months of silence.
Are there signs of things returning to normal where you are?
For the sounds of normality at last to break the alien silence we have endured
For being able to sit at the computer long enough to catch up blog reading and emails
For ALL the kind people in the world. God bless you all x
Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x
