so much for summer heat,as i write this its frankly peeing it down,gale force winds blowing,and it looks like bloody november. ah,british summer time at its best. although it should get out later the forecast for the next few days is ermmmmm rain. which is a shame.Wells next sea has their carnival day tomorrow,a lot of hard work goes into it,and its sad if its ruined by bad weather. still,there are a lot of holidaymakers about,albeit looking rather fed up and bedraggled. here in Stiffkey we have a camp site down near the marshes,on what was an old army training camp during World war 2,frankly i would rather keep at home lol,but it was full last saturday evening when i took a walk. pity them today though.i think i would go home if it was me.
I saw Dr.M last thursday, he looked at lindas reccomendations but has advised that one of the 2 she wanted me to try,another pain killer, has side effects which he thinks will make me feel very ill,and as at the moment i seem to be doing ok on the ones i am on,we decided to give it a miss. the other,i have been trying. it's a nasal spray to inhibit the need to go to the loo in the night,MS sufferers tend to have trouble "holding on",or to put it another way,if ya gotta go,omg too late lol. a couple of times i have had to get up in the night,quick,and then the pain in my ankle and legs stop me going back to sleep,so linda thought it may help.not too keen on reading the leaflet,but i thought heyho,2 squirts,1 up each nostril, off to bed out like a light next morning,i was up at my usual time 5.45 omg,but tracey comes at 7 and i do like an hour of peace and quiet on my own first, into bathroom,and oooo dont want loo. in fact no sign. which is strange. and why are my ankles so swollen,pain in the right one much worse. cut long story short,i ended up taking one of mums water tablets, i rang Dr.M at 11 and said,i cant wee,lol ah,he said think 1 squirt in future will be ample for you,best nick one of mums diuretics. so,spray is sitting in its box and its keeping there. i was in agony.lol.
yesterday i went to Kelling hospital,linda asked the speech therapist to see me, and i was with her for 45 minutes. she had a long talk,and explained that the left side of my mouth is slightly weak,i have a slight tremor in my lips,and my tongue is not quite so mobile as it should be. explains why i slightly slur my words specially when tired; or yack a lot. also,i swallow a sip of water twice,as my swallowing reflex is weak,which is why i sometimes get problems swallowing,and explained i do have to be careful with certain things i eat. all in al,she is quite pleased to tell me i dont have too much trouble at the moment,and is ringing me in october to see how i am. i notice i slur my speech,but others often dont,unless i am feeling tired. like now. been doing bit to much i think. baked this week,cleaned,cut grass,blah blah. taking it easy today,just going shopping to fakenham in a short while and thats it.
lastly heres a few pics, the hanging baskets and pots still look lovely,and i have been really pleased how they have done.
i am going to add some more in another entry, just in case i lose this entry i am closing it. take care all.
