Differcult visit to the clinic .
« on: September 27, 2013, 05:31:36 AM »
Yesterday I had a follow up visit to the clinic , another batch off body fluids and , resulting in seems like antibiotics are working come back if the infection comes back

The differcult bit is the letter I picked up. In order to stay in my flat I am appling for an exemption from the bedroom tax , and needed a Doctors letter to do this.

My Doctor wrote an excellent letter with 12 medical problems I have. This has left me in  shock.I think I must use creative ignorance by just not being aware off at least 6 off them.This kinda conflicts with a self view that I don,t ignore things,I do though and it will be a long time before I read the letter again .

I am reminded off someone, sadly now dead, who I shared many days with on the ward way back before combo.He was being treated for CMV and had got to the stage where his veins where collapsing and he needed a permanent Hickman line fitted. At the time this was an image off impending death to a lot off us, I was so impressed by how he used humour to get to the next day. He introduced me to a saying that often pops into my head.

We,ll just play it by fear.

More ammunition for you to use with any insurance/SSI issues. I've got to prove to my disability insurance company's biannual reviews that I'm still disabled. Everytime I do I've got yet another diagnosis and they still persist. What disturbs me is when the doc says that I'm regressing. Well not really, I always was a big kid.

Love the humorous phrase you learned. A friend of mine, now passed, use to say if I ever lost my sense of humor I was to get on all fours and crawl around the floor until I found it again.

I take some of my diagnosis with a grain of salt. Just by living you acquire many of them eventually.
2016 CD4 25% UD (less than 20). 30+ years positive. Dolutegravir, Acyclovir, Clonazepam, Lisinopril, Quetiapine, Sumatriptan/Naproxen, Restasis, Latanoprost, Asprin, Levothyroxine, Restasis, Triamcinolone.
