Well am I back at work yet...?
going back to work on th 10th...so a good start to the year! My GP just seems to be waiting with a pen when ever I call or visit. I dont know weather he is feeling bad about mis-diagnoses for such a long time(I know he is not the one who has the equipment/gives diagnoses...but!) or he feels sorry for me.......I dont care! he is a really good doctor and I thank and shake his hand every time I see him!
wait a minute is that the first good point about having ms...getting signed off work?
I have also recieved a call today from occupational heath today. they wanted to know how bad it is and what help I will need to return to work.......hmm, I guess I have had a lot time off. I think I will have to bite the bullet and get a stick.
I have a meeting with the ms physo on friday...he/she is the person to speak to with regards to the public marking of a walking stick. Its not that I have viewed people with sticks as second class citizens or anything. Its just that I am strangly paranoid about how people see me.
Yes it will help walk but.......I guess you guys know!
I will have to try harder to keep my chin up and think more globally as well.
keep smiling

    don't think of it a 'having to use a stick'. think of it more as 'gaining a weapon to smack the irritating'!

    hope all is well.

    Yeah, I went through an insanely self-conscious and paranoid period with each new mobility device: 1 stick, 2 sticks, wheelchair. Rollater? No way! I would be insanely paranoid FOREVER: The Semiotics of Chronic Illness.
