Fuzzy, Head and Blind Chatterbox
I had a board meeting, in Neath, to attend, with CTA Wales http://www.ctauk.org/in-your-area/wales.aspx
Rejoined the train at 3.40pm., got to Chesterfield at 20.06.
Wednesday, my appointment, 10.20 am. I got there early, and went straight in, to see Dr Marios H, explained about the MUSCLE Biopsy, and the slot date would be sent out to me (it means an overnight stay in Hospital, as the biopsy, will take place on a Friday am)
While there, caught up with David, (from the Sheffield Ataxia Support group)
And met Lorna, (who we both only on Virtualataxia, CHAT)
On my train home on Thursday, Chesterfield station, lifts were out of order, but the station manager, made arrangements, for the train to arrive at the near platform.
I had a short journey, to Derby, for my next connection, to Cardiff.
Here I was to share the carriage, with a very old blind lady and her guide dog.
The blind lady was very pleasant, I explained I was in a wheelchair, that was why the Dog, had to be moved, out of the passageway.
All the way from Derby to Cardiff, this lady didn’t stop Chatting !!!! and I mean CONTINUOUS, even when I was in the Loo, she would be SHOUTING, a conversation, to me !!!. When I opened my sandwiches, she heard the rustle, of the bag, enquired, what I was doing and so started another topic, of conversation. You can imagine, I didn’t manage to get any sleep, on the journey. Newport she got off, for her connection, to Dorchester and a guest house., for me QUIET.
Didn’t go to “school” (Coleshill Social Centre) on Friday, was very tired, and felt unwell (headache, very fuzzy head, like a hangover, very disinoreientated).
Went to Theatr Mwldan, on Saturday, to see Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief http://www.imdb.com/media/rm58887936/tt0814255
This Friday I am to attend an event in Swansea, Pain Management study day, where I have been invited to participate, in the Q+A session, with the audience.
