It’s been a hell of a few months, and I’m still trying to process it really, as there are still so many ongoing issues. So we moved a while back and we’re finally getting settled, now we have almost all our belongings in our new place, my meds are finally settling, my diagnoses and treatments are getting sorted out, so some good news. Then there’s the rest of the story.
Because of my health issues, I have reached a point where I’ve had to admit that I need more help, at least with my mobility, so I ordered a wheelchair at the beginning of April. Long story short, it arrived the wrong colour and damaged, so I started the return/refund because they couldn’t replace it with the right one. Now almost two months later, eBay finally refunded it and it’s gone. Getting one next week though now, so hopefully I’ll be able to get out and about more, for which I cannot wait.
On top of all this, we’ve had constant building works around us, and inconsiderate neighbours causing problems, so rest hasn’t come easy, making my other issues worse, from my everyday pain levels to the number of dislocations and other symptoms.
My aunt passed away last month as well. She shouldn’t have, but she’s gone, and that’s still pretty raw; like how is it I’m never going to see her again? I don’t really know how to deal with it really, but I’m thinking about getting a tattoo for her and for Andrew.
It finally feels like things might start to look up, with a couple of things planned over the next couple of months, but I’m still so aware that every time it starts to settle, something else happens to make things more difficult. I’m so grateful for everyone that’s stuck around for me, when I’ve been difficult, absent, various forms of expletive, everything. When I’ve felt so down, it really is the little things that have cheered me up, even just a meme or a little comment, so thank you, all of you x
