I can’t take much more . . .

I need the help of a good solicitor in Glasgow

HAVE REMOVED THE BULK OF THIS BLOG POST.   FOR LEGAL REASONS. 

I only have enough energy just now to copy below an email I sent to my usual solicitor last week. As it gives some background.
But he told me his firm don’t do civil court cases therefore cannot help.

HAVE REMOVED ALL OF THE DETAIL FROM THIS PART TOO.

” I am simply not well enough to phone around. Therefore adding this to my blog. And will advertise/appeal on Twitter.
Maybe not ideal but its all I can think of.

HAVE REMOVED STUFF HERE TOO.

It makes phone calls too hard. I can’t remember stuff, communicate what I need to say, get muddled, etc.
This email is massively hard work and exhausting. But I can take hours over it with breaks. Change mistakes, etc.

And another worry is any time limits for things. This is also why I feel I need proper representation.
Because with ME – when I push myself to use extra energy on something big (like typing this email) – I am then much worse for the next few days. Often completely wiped out with severe headaches and exhaustion.

So I’m concerned that I won’t be able to do things quickly enough, eg. any forms needed.

Sorry this is so long.
Will wait to hear from you.

Hope you are well and business is good.

Best regards

Anne Dean ”

Apologies if it doesn’t make much sense now. My priority was just to delete any specific detail about the legal issue. Even although no actual names were mentioned, I felt it was sensible to do this. 

 

Gratitude 5 : Newlands Park

Leave a comment

Had a walk in a lovely park the other day. In Glasgow’s south-side.
Its called Newlands Park and is a lovely smallish park. With lots of interesting areas and plenty benches to sit on. It was quiet with just a few people walking their dogs.
It was just heaven – breathing in the fresh air, enjoying all the greenery and some flowers out, and listening to the birds tweeting.
Just heaven.
I need more of this for sure . . . .

Grareful to have such a nice park close to home.

Going Into Hospital

2 Comments

Can hardly believe it’s already the 24th Jan 2014.
I haven’t managed to do many posts in the last while, I know.

Everything has been too difficult.
Same old story . . .

Incase anyone thinks I am being a drama queen – my husband was almost in
tears the other night. And was saying things like “this is a terrible life” . . ,
NB.  He won’t thank me for quoting this here – but I have to.
As very few people can have any idea of how much struggling with CFS/ME long term takes out of you, and your partner. (Where you’re lucky enough to still have one that is.)
When there has been so little help available.

This is just a very brief update :

On Monday 27th Jan I will be getting the benefit of a 5 day in-patient stay (treatment and rest) in the Homeopathic Dept of Gartnavel Hospital in Glasgow.
And while I could say :
At last – some much needed help after what feels like a 25 year struggle, etc etc etc . . .  I do realise I am very fortunate to be offered this at all.
There are many people with CFS/ME much worse than me.
And so many people are just left to rot. Which was what I felt had happened to me – until recently.

Looking forward to this has without doubt given me a big mental & emotional boost – because how could this week fail to help me ?
Even just a little bit will be a huge bonus.
They are a Centre Of Integrative Care after all – which sounds ideal for people with CFS/ME.

But the effort involved in sorting out various work things, putting some changes in place, etc – has had a bad  physical effect on my health this past 2 weeks.

I’m getting that heavy pressing weight in my chest again. Lots of other symptoms too – but the weight on the chest (and out of puff so easily) is a problem that isn’t easily ignored.

I haven’t even been able to give much thought to what I want (and need) to take into hospital with me yet. And right now I have so little energy left that I can see me arriving at the hospital with just my handbag and maybe a toothbrush in it.
And little else !

But this is meant to be a positive post – and I have no doubt this coming week will benefit me.  Even if I do arrive looking as if I’ve been pulled through a hedge backwards . . .
And I’m really grateful for this chance.

I don’t think there are many of these Integrated Care centres throughout the UK.
I am very lucky that this one exists right  here in Glasgow.

Roll on Monday . . .

A Good Weekend

Leave a comment

Well this weekend was good.

Not that I did anything mega exciting but it was the 1st time I had been out then house properly during the daytime for 3 weeks !!  Did some walking and got fresh air.
3 weeks – how does this happen you may ask ?
Well in CFS or ME land it is unfortunately all too common at times. And the last few weeks have been a bit difficult.
But won’t dwell on that now.

My husband came to take me out both days and did all the driving around.

We did some perhaps dull things like go to B & Q, and shops etc – but even this I enjoyed (up to a point. . . ) as I was glad to get out.

Today was the best of the 2 days.

We had a nice long, slow, peaceful walk thru Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow’s West End – and even around some of the streets in what is called the Park Area just into the West End.
It is full of the type of properties I love – old traditional houses and flats from victorian times.  All so distinctive – the lovely detail in the buildings and the big windows. I find it relaxing just looking at them.
Then we found a cafe within the park and had a nice coffee and a break.
We did other things too but the time in the park I found the most rejuvenating – physically and mentally.

Its now evening and I’m a bit tired.
But its more like a natural tiredness – rather than that awful CFS/ME tiredness which really is beyond description.
Hubby is still here – and we’re just going to settle down and watch some TV now.
And will have a nice glass of chilled pinot grigio wine.
