lovely to hear about the wedding as you say Larry.
Chuggs I hope the teef are settling now and that the antiB's are doing the job and not leaving you too sluggish (that's what they do to me)
Hmm wonder what the Yumms and Larry team are up to now?
((Snaily)), you know what my thoughts are on your situation.
I have a working diagnosis for my poorly foot, some bursitis going on in the Plantar Fascia. It's been pulled and pushed today, fingers crossed that some healing will start to take place. I'm actually missing being able to run now - this may well change once I'm able to!
I'm off to babysit young Jack now, he is very entertaining, and can be very tiring - he has boundless energy that I've been trying to catch and bottle, but he's keeping it all to himself!!!
the other is The local advocacy service. I'm not sure exactly where your friend lives, but http://www.seap.org.uk should lead to a local service for her.
Mind may also be able to help. I guess the argument should be based on the level of risk to/by him if he is having break through symptoms. I would suggest that a heavy emphasis on risk may be the best way forward.
Mental health and Learning difficulties are the orphans of the health/social care services. It really makes my blood boil when large amounts of money is spent on things like cosmetic surgery, yes, I know that some is necessary because of the effect on a persons mental health - but there are many that are taking the urine!. (Noggs your turn )
So glad the wedding went ok Noggs and that Amelia had her day as well.
Well done Cheesey, sometimes sensible is the only way to go, after all this running lark is supposed to be good for us, pushing beyond the limits is not such a good idea. Well done for starting and well done for recognising that enough was enough.
Sluggie, your friend can insist on having the right medication if it is doing a better job, cost or no. Our GP tried that one on us after HWMBT had his fit/stroke. The London hozzie had prescribed one anti epileptic, the GP changed it to a generic one. I went to the doc with him and told her that she was risking him having another fit, she argued that it wouldn't make a difference. She eventually, in rather a cocky manner phoned the pharmacist who told her that I was right, that changing could be potentially dangerous. Me 1 GP - red faced
If necessary, they can appeal to the local health board to have the proper medication reinstated.
