Don, I’m so sorry I came in on your post, I agree with Pauline if I could mend you I would too. Well lunch with my Mum went as expected, when the time came to talk to her she scuttled out the room as quick as she could, it was like a comedy act, but to my surprise, my dad sat down and asked all about what it meant and I explain what type I had, he had no idea there was different types. He asked how it’s going to effect me short term, long term, medications, treatments, conventional and non cinventional. He was really wonderful, like he was happy there was an answer to all my problems, and something he could “google” as he put it. He said he will, look into it and that made me feel so much better.
Its the first time in my life I have ever had this kind of support, it was fabulous.
I now kind of know how to talk to my friends from now if they ask etc.
I came home and slep for 2 hours though, I was so sore I couldn’t think, I just took meds and lay down and can’t remember the rest, soon the ONSIE was on and I’ve taken my night time meds and I feel much better with things. You all really are a fabulous amazing lot of people, you have all helped me so much
