jeanette of Jeannette's Jottings is the guest editor on AOL Journals: Magic Smoke this week. and as one of her choices she picked my journal. i am one of the guest editors picks. how lovely is that? I want to say thanks to jeanette, no idea why she picked this load of ( sometimes ) self pitying whinging but she did. and i am grateful to her. if you are a new reader you are welcome,please leave a comment, and cheque under mat. thanks. lol.
i have been writing this journal since last october,it was origionally intended as a means to let off steam,i was waiting to have a carers assessment done, that took ages i recall. it seems to have changed its direction since i was confirmed with MS,just lately i have been self pitying, and instead of mother and my caring for her its changed to me,and how the MS is affecting me. but i am still caring. today we went to fakenham and just did the weeks shopping,the lady from disability rights rang me yesterday afternoon,and asked if i minded if she came then instead of today, just caught me as i was then going to cut the graves. good job she did come then,that form took 2 hours to fill in. as she said,i would never have done it if it was left to me. now i wait and see their verdict. she did say i should be entitled to extra benefits,also said couldnt believe i had never applied for it before. my back trouble alone was enough in her opinion for me to get it. we will see, lol. also, today i have really bit the bullet. and rang for an application form for a blue badge disabled nasty word. it means that you cant do things that able bodied people can. and i realise, that that is how i am now. never mind. many thanks once again to jeanette thanks to you all,who read this and have left me lovely comment, take care all
