Oh bless. Is it cool enough now? To wear a jammy top in bed, I mean?


It is if you have the fan going full blast to compensate! :lol: :lol: :lol: The long pants will have to wait for quite a while though. She was freaking out "What happens if I grow out of them before winter!!!??" I assured her she is fine. They are the perfect fit. ANd if they hadnt been the perfect fit I would have taken them apart stitch by stitch and remade them to fit :lol:



:clap: You are such a good mum!

Now GO TO BED! :lol:

You should be! I know you worked so hard. Do you have a break before the next semester starts?

This isn't a completely cheerful smile. More a happy-sad kind of smile, but this still seemed the best place to post :) Anyway, I saw a new consultant this afternoon (yesterday afternoon? I haven't been to sleep yet so it's still Wednesday to me :P), he didn't make me cry, so I'm taking it as a win ;) It's not all good news, some of my types of pain aren't very responsive to meds and accessing pain management courses is tricky when I'm this ill, even the residential ones. But he's referring me to have an MRI scan on my shoulder. It doesn't sound like much (and we're not expecting much to come from it), but I've had shoulder pain since a fall when I was 10 and 19 years later I'm having the first investigation into it. The sad part is the time it's taken and all the teachers and doctors who didn't believe how bad it was, but the very happy part is I've found a doctor who believes it's real and wants to look into it and treat it and not just assume that because it's chronic nothing can be done :D :D

And on top of that my Dad put up some of my Christmas presents this evening, so I have new pretties to look at and the space in my wall is filling up nicely :) (I like to swap things around sometimes so I have a different view) One of the presents he put up is the most beautiful set of butterfly fairy lights! We've draped them through the brackets for one of my ornament shelves so I can see them even when I'm feeling less good :D
Hah! I laugh in the face of danger... Then I hide until it goes away.

Phoenix!!!!!! Welcome back! We have missed you!

That's such wonderful news about the MIR... even better that you have finally found someone who believes you. You poor darling. That's shameful that you have had to wait so long. I started to get massive pain attacks when I was about 12.. random but sometimes one a year, sometimes ten a year... and always raced off in an ambulance to hospital. I was always scared it would happen when I was way out at sea, or days away from help out west. It took a random attack while I was IN my doctors waiting room for something else that he looked at me and said.. oh that's watchamakallit. I was 40! Now I know what it is and how to manage it I haven't had a bad attack since. Yay.

I am hoping you have a similar brilliant outcome. At least mine were random. I don't know how you manged 19 yrs of that. I have heard great things about your health system. This doesn't sound good at all.

You know..... if you have finally found a doctor who is on your side you hang on to him/her. And I just bet he won't give up until he has found some relief or answers for you. And thats the best result.

I love fairy lights. It's like Christmas all year. What else do you have on your wall you love.. if it's not too personal a question.
