A few days ago I was talking to a friend of mine (who also blogs and can be found at https://danonwheels.wordpress.com/) and we got onto the subject of doctors, I had had a particularly unhelpful doctors appointment where 95% of my issues and concerns had been dismissed as something that she couldn't do anything about, … Continue reading Why being called a medical “enigma” or “puzzle” is not helpful
This post is one of the 22 I've had sitting ready to finish. I wanted to finish it now, mainly because it's happening again, I'm unable to go out as an issue with my mobility scooter is isolating me again and although last weekend I had a great trip to London (a birthday treat that … Continue reading When isolation becomes the norm…
As you may have noticed I've been absent for a few months again now. I've been struggling with both what to write, and with my own health and mental health.

I today made a telephone call! Ok so to a lot of people this is not a big deal but to me these cause a huge panic. It starts when I decide I need to make the call, usually this is a last minute decision because if I have time to think about it for … Continue reading A plea for all
No one said that having a catheter was easy, and I've been under no illusion that this was the case. However my bendy body doesn't seem to think that having a catheter is bad enough on it's own, and so this past week and a bit I have had to call the nurses out four … Continue reading Catheter woes and what is a supra-pubic catheter??!!
