Ok, so in case you've missed the fact that I'm still ill, or are totally distraught that the lack of updates as to my well-being, I'm going to talk all about me for a paragraph or two...
I'm still ill. Still in pain - the same pain that took me to A&E last Thursday (over a week ago). I'm going to ring the doctors in about 10 minutes, when they open, to see if there's any chance of them fitting me in today. Cos Monday is a bank holiday, and it'll be another 3 days until they're open, and when they are there are likely to be many many people trying to get appointments. Cos that's the way it seems to go with doctor's appointments!
I'm allergic to ibuprofen and co-codamol and aspirin, which had left me with paracetamol, and that doesn't seem to do anything for the pain. I was chatting with a friend of mine of facebook the other day, and she's similar to me, in that she's allergic to lots of stuff. Anyway, she's given me the name of an anti-inflammatory that she can take, so I shall take that with me when I go. (And if they can fit me in to have an appointment this morning, then I will also be taking R&D with me. R&D are two children that I'm looking after this morning, because their school is having an INSET day - which stands for something, but basically means that the teachers go in and the kids don't!)
Um, so there you have it. I'm still really really tired. I'm meant to be going out for a meal to celebrate a friend's birthday tonight, but I cancelled it, because I'm also supposed to be going out to a girly evening tomorrow night - to watch the Eurovision Song Contest, and also celebrate my birthday. And I figured if I was going to go out to celebrate a birthday at any point this weekend, it probably ought to be mine that I saved my energy for!
Update: I rang the doctors and they can fit me in this morning. Means I will have to take R&D with me, but still, maybe they'll be able to give me something for the pain.
