It makes such a difference being out of bed for 6-8 hours a day. It just makes life seem a little bit more normal. And being able to go out for walks and watch a bit of TV. Although it isn’t a huge change in ability to function, it has been a huge boost psychologically. Have made an appointment to get my hair cut next week. It is so good to know that I have every chance now of keeping such appointments. I no longer dread these things in case I have to cancel or worse, fail to cope. Had my eyes tested at home this week. Have a family history of glaucoma so was a bit concerned I had gone three years or more without getting checked out. All is well in that respect but I do need new spectacles. I didn’t feel well enough to tackle that so will wait for another day. The weather still isn’t great, hasn’t been all summer which is a shame. It isn’t really bothering me. I don’t mind walks in the rain!!
