I would say that life for us is like a roller coaster, but it seems as though there are more downs than ups over the past few months. It does feel a bit like someone's got it in for us....I know that's rubbish, it's just what it feels like.
The lovely lady doctor I saw in A&E a couple of weeks ago, as well as recommending the Sleep book to me, also picked up on something completely unrelated to my teeth. The reason she picked it up was because she just happened to have been to a conference last year on this very condition. She said I should mention it to my GP with a view to having tests, as it wasn't something that would be checked in a routine blood test, or even thought about. So I did. The GP has taken it seriously enough to arrange for me to have an initial test. If it comes back positive, then I will have to have further tests, most likely as an inpatient in hospital. If they're positive too, then it means an operation, further treatment and probable medication for life.
If it is positive....well, sod's law says it'll probably all happen around the same time that husband is due to have his foot operated on. In which case, I'll postpone my stuff - husband's in pain and needs his foot op, my condition, if indeed there is one, doesn't really impact on my daily life (as yet) and if that A&E doctor hadn't picked up on it, I would in fact have remained in blissful ignorance.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves...it may turn out to be nothing.
I'm being (well, trying to be) positive about it all, but I do wish that something nice would happen for a change.
