4th December 2010
I was back to see the doctor yesterday to let him know how I am feeling after the vitamin B12 injection. He also went through more fully of my symptons. The injection has helped particularly with the pain in my hip. The only time I am suffering with twinges is when we take the dogs out for a walk as Bruno pulls and I am being cautious walking because of the snow and ice. Generally I am feeling better in myself apart from the constant tiredness. I have suffered problems sleeping for more years than I care to remember so I don’t know if that will ever be cured. The past couple of days I have been close to dozing in the chair in the afternoons. The doctor gave me another injection in two weeks times. I am now suffering with anxiety again over needles in general. A few months ago I was suffering badly with anxiety and developing a phobia for needles due to the amount of blood tests I was having. That stopped when I didn’t have to go back for anymore blood tests. Over the few weeks I have had two blood tests and two vitamin B12 injections so my anxiety levels are rising again. It was that bad yesterday that I couldn’t bring myself to ask if my medical record or hospital results are through yet.
Rick purchased mandyhope.co.uk a few days ago so I had hoped that would take my mind of things but it hasn’t completely. Yesterday I couldn’t concentrate at all so didn’t get a great deal done. Today my concentration was better so got quite a few poems over onto the new site. Tomorrow I am hoping that I can complete getting the rest of the poems over.
Tomorrow, provided it isn’t cancelled again due to the weather, Rick will be playing with the Salvation Army band at a local garden centre. I’m going along as it should be a bit of fun.
