Hope you finally manage to get this sorted Mary. It sounds awful. Sorry you had to cancel your holiday. x

Paws crossed for you Mary - and we've just lost our holiday as well because it collided with SLOC's knee replacement surgery.

MaryR, I know how it feels. I hope it gets sorted asap! Noreen, sorry to hear your holiday is off! I am happy to read about everyone's holidays though. I'm belatedly posting about the 95% of my trip that went exceptionally well :)

SLOC is back after nearly two weeks in Thailand visiting his father. :heart: The dog went wild, me nearly as much.

(His luggage isn't back, and is probably in Vienna, but that's a different story !!)

I'm tackling my first ever park run this Saturday. :shock:

I was invited by a colleague who is far slimmer and faster (I am of Frau Berlin proportions myself), but have roped in a fellow beginner to come with me.

Am frankly amazed that I'm even considering getting up before 8am!

Are there two eight o'clocks in day?

It's certainly the first time I've been aware of there being two on a Saturday!

Sorry to hear about your holiday MaryR but I hope all goes well with the neurosurgeon.

I meant to post this last week when I found them but a local charity shop had some GGBP books in and I managed to get five CS books for 50p each!! :D :D
They also had a shelf of 60s/70s CS paperbacks but I've already got all the paperbacks so I left those. I don't think I've ever seen GGBP books round here before.

Also my husband is finally having his hip replacement operation on Tuesday. I'm hoping mentioning it won't jinx it and it won't be delayed or cancelled. He is in so much pain every day because of arthritis but he said having his other hip done helped enormously so hopefully this one will go as well as that one did.

I'm happy because a close friend, who I haven't seen for 3 years, is coming to visit me next Saturday.

Well that all sounds very positive. Helsinki is great, and we went to Tallinn for the day which was really beautiful

Just in case anyone was wondering, Linda was my closest friend when I lived in Gerrards Cross. She's since moved to Coventry, which is much closer to me and easier to get to by train - neither of us drive. Although we haven't seen each other for some time, we have kept in touch by phone and email.

Thanks to those of you who expressed sympathy for the immense pain of my damaged nerves. Haven't been on here again since I posted, as the pain has been too bad, but alas I'm still waiting to hear about an apt to see the consultant re the two scans. I expected things to move a little more quickly than this when going privately, so please keep those fingers crossed. :dontknow: I can't lie on my back or sit in a chair, as it instantly induces agony everywhere, so anything I do, like typing, I have to do standing, and am feeling pretty grim, as this has been going on since July.

PS I know this shouldn't really be in the happy thread, but it started here, so.... :wink:

Hopefully you'll be able to report back some happiness soon, Mary.

It's cold, windy and it rained today here in France but I'm enjoying the food and wine and speaking French. Today I saw a wonderful Alfred Sisley exhibition in Aix en Provence. I wonder if Herr Laubach approved of the Impressionists?

cal562301: Thanks for your PM. I'll reply soon.

Mary, I've been there, it's awful and you have my utmost utmost sympathy. In happy news, I'm realising that I have made some good friends in the last 12-18 months, which is proving to be helpful right now :)

What would we do without our friends, roversgirl, especially those who would walk through any storm with us? A few of mine are doing that for me right now.

As for SLOC, he's the best friend I ever had - although a total nut-case. Someone rang this morning wanting to know if we have a washing machine, and just kept on asking, ignoring SLOC asking him why he wanted to know. In the end, SLOC said "No we haven't got one. I do all the washing myself by hand!" and put the phone down. Well, I just collapsed. It was the best laugh I've had in a long while.

Do hope they can do something for you soon, Mary. It does sound really grim.

I forget whether or not I posted on here about the Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic denying that I had ME/CFS... it was about two months ago... anyway, it felt awful and invalidating and I wrote a stiff letter. On Wednesday I had my second appointment; I asked my mum to sit in on the appointment and she was able to explain a couple of things more forcefully than I was. The upshot is that the guy seems to have accepted the diagnosis.... I'm assuming this, anyway, because he's basically introduced me to their programme and made an appointment to start it, and last time he said that without the ME/CFS diagnosis this second appointment would be the last they could give me without requesting funding from my GP. So that's a great relief. Hopefully their programme will be helpful; at least they don't advocate Graded Exercise Therapy!

Good luck with the scans and treatment Mary!

My happiness is that I have some new physiotherapy exercises which seem to be working and they're called "happy cat" and "angry cat" and do vaguely resemble a kitty!
