My State on Sunday 20/52

Weekly Rating: 7/10

Highlight: Getting signed off work for 3 weeks

Lowlight: having a terrible night’s sleep after my operation. Snoring can be outrageously loud on a hospital ward

Need: to relax and recover, it is time to watch films and TV series, read books and eat soft food.

Miss: having to get on my train every morning and stand for between twenty-eight minutes and two hours travelling to work. NHAWTT

Learnt: My legs are too long for hospital beds and Caitlin Moran’s chapter on starting her period was pretty disgusting and slightly insightful

Miss: being able to remember the whole of a night out

Learnt: you can’t make the world spin faster.

A story about how my life got twisted upside down, again – Pachyder What

Well I have had quite the week.

Last night was my appointment with my Haematologist to discuss my latest set off blood results and formulate a plan of action to try and make me better. Well that was the hope I had about week ago, but everything has spiralled out of control a bit.
