Y’know I was in a RIGHT foul mood this morning, especially thanks to the bus arriving late and now I missed my muscle physio appointment (lucky she was able to see me after clinic/around mid day so I wasn’t back till 2 o'clock). Anyway, since this was the last clinic appointment for the year and not going to see them till January now, I’d through I’d talk.
Basically regular checkup but needed to get things off my chest.
From my last journal I wrote I was saying that I’ve become very paranoid with certain tasks and everyday life thanks to the anti depressant I was on, well I’ve spoken to one of my doctors and we agree that I will half the dose. If this doesn’t work, they will re-think and probably take me off that certain one and coming up with something new to help my Anxiety. Btw Paranoid and more on my other Anxieties ( So my Social Anxiety is a little better but my anxious self is not is what I'm trying to get at) are a side effect to the medication, can also lead to panic attacks if not treated.
I’d also like to point out another problem that has accord and that was my throat, it only appeared a few days ago but I am finding things a lot harder to swallow and stomach acid keeps coming back, which is just nasty! They said that it well maybe heartburn/indigestion so I’m gonna take more tablets for the next 6 weeks to see if that helps. Then the doctor also gave me some oral antibiotics incase my chest or self starts to feel worst over the Winter.
Tho my chest is stable at the same percentage it was when I last went not dropping or anything (even tho I’m coughing a lot more and bit more breathless). Also got a new Pep mask ( to help with my physio since I broke mine a few nights ago
As for my weight and diabetes, doing pretty good. In fact my weight HAS GONE UP! By 2 kilos since I was last weight, it seems this new diet may work after all, heck I like the idea of putting double cream in some of my meals now. And my diabetes is controllable and not many high blood sugars that lead to weight lost. So yeah.
And I saw my back physio right now my backs aching from all my mussels being pulled but there is a HUGE difference. I’m able to stand a lot straighter now. Tho my right side stiff and so is my left a little still, this is including my shoulders and neck too
So yeah. That was the hospital. It was nice that the staff gave me a cuppa brew as I arrived so my grumpiness could cheer up but it was nice to have a positive appointment. Now no more clinics till next year!…Well okay…
I still gotta go to the hospital for a CT scan, more muscle physio, Therapy and possibly port flush at some point. But all in the next few weeks before christmas.

P.S. I know I’ve been a bit of a scrooge about Christmas but I think once the house gets decorated I’ll start to feel a little bit more festive.
