We’ve all been a bit down in my office recently and earlier in the week we gave ourselves a communal talking to and said that every day we had to say one thing that was positive about our day.
I’ve needed to give myself a kick up the backside as I’ve been a bit negative recently due to having a tough time health wise. However today I saw a consultant gastroenterologist; she was amazing, young, vibrant, insisted I called her by her first name, and filled me with confidence that she would either diagnose my problem or rule out the problem being gastrointestinal. That’s something to be positive about.
I’ve paid to go privately as the waiting list was so long for an initial appointment and my condition is affecting my work. I am very conscious that with my boss retiring I do need to get a new job by next May and the idea of job hunting feeling this exhausted is unpalatable. I’m a bit uncomfortable about private medicine as I believe strongly in the NHS, but my positive from that is by paying another person will see a consultant a little bit quicker.
So, I have a colonoscopy coming up either next Monday if they can fit me in, or on November 13th. That the procedure will be done quickly is something to be positive about!
Yarny things to be positive about today:
My friend Sam has a crazy project for us to work on while we’re cooking Christmas cakes this weekend. I can’t say more as it’s his Ta-dah but hopefully I can soon!
I’m not behind on this weeks Scheepjes CAL pattern…
