My body is telling me to stop and rest today but my brain is buzzing after my medical yesterday so I just had to tell you guys that sometimes miracles do happen even for us :ok: :wink: :ok:
I felt lousy yesterday and I was so nevous but it turned out to be one of the best experiences I have had for ages :cheerup:
Sorry, I am rambling :oops:
I was interviewed & examined by a Practice Nurse who was a very sweet quietly spoken & genteel looking [i:fb4d5e1b8e]older lady[/i:fb4d5e1b8e] :nurse: :angel:
My original diagnosis (2 years ago) for my benefit was depression so I started off by nervously trying to explain to her about the ME and how I had only recently been diagnosed because I had to change GPs to finally get a diagnosis.
[b:fb4d5e1b8e]Well [/b:fb4d5e1b8e]would you believe that this lady just happened to be an Occ therapist [b:fb4d5e1b8e]and [/b:fb4d5e1b8e]just happened to have friends with ME [b:fb4d5e1b8e]and[/b:fb4d5e1b8e] just happened to be deeply interested in ME and had consequently done loads of research into it :tickle: :lol:
After questioning me about my battle with my original GP she suddenly changed from an angel into a little monster :monster: and started ranting about the lack of understanding and help for ME sufferers within the NHS :twisted:
:lol: :lol: Have any of you fallen off your seats yet :lol: :lol: :lol:
I couldn't believe it, this lady was actually on my side and she understood Us :ok:
I know I am rambling on and I hope you guys haven't got bored yet :oops:
Anyway, after that she insisted on correcting most of my questionnaire answers so that whenever I had stated that I [i:fb4d5e1b8e]try[/i:fb4d5e1b8e] to do various things she corrected them with the fact that I had extreme difficulty and all the time she was muttering about how the NHS should offer more support for ME :evil: :evil:
The interview lasted over 1 1/2 hours and I was totally exhausted but by then I thought I had found a guardian angel in this lovely understanding lady :angel: :rose: :angel:
It just goes to re-affirm something I have always known .........
Doctors may [b:fb4d5e1b8e]think [/b:fb4d5e1b8e]they know everything but it's the Nurses who really know :nurse: and mostly really care.
I hope I haven't rambled on too much but I just had to share a bit of good news for a change :cheerup: :cheerup: :cheerup:
