Well today started out like any other, the usual madness in my house of getting the kids and me all ready to go out. My daughter was having a day with my parents while i took the littlist for his nursery visit to meet the staff before he starts his settling in visits.
The visit went really well, he was really shy & clingy for a bit but started playing with the others towards the end. When the snacks came out I thought I could have left him then and there! He was straight at the table for a bit banana.
I don’t think he will find it too hard to settle in come September. I’m still not looking forward to it but I feel a bit better now he has been. I have been home with him for a whole year so not sure how he was going to cope. My little girl started nursery at 8 months and it was hard at first but she did love it once she was in.
I also had to pop into work as they need a copy of my passport for there files, so after going home and a frantic search for it (why is it not in the import documents files with all the other stuff?) I was off out again, baby and
bags in tow – all rushing today.
I arrive at work and feeling a bit funny, like dizzy, sick and a bit floaty. Decided it was probably the heat in the car, the rushing round and the fact I skipped breakfast this morning in the chaos.
Then after I left work I was really shaking, felt really dizzy and sick and like I would pass out. My friend lives juat around the corner so I went to her house as I had little man with me and I was driving. I thought ill have a cuppa and sit till it passes. I still wasn’t concerned just thought I’d done too much today.
I was there a couple of hours but I still felt unwell. I rang my mam and went home. She came and helped me with the kids and I thought I’d ring the hospital and see if this was common after treatment as they had told me to call if I felt unwell at anytime.
After speaking to the ward they asked if I’d spoken to my MS nurse, erm, she is on holiday and I’m a bit new at this, i’m not sure who i should call? They rang back after checking with a Dr and advised me to see my GP or local walk in centre. Off I went to walk in as getting a GP appointment for less than 2 weeks time is hard enough. My mam was driving and the kids both loaded into the car.
I waited at the walk in centre while my mam took the kids to her house as it was tea time and they were getting hungry. I was then told that walk in can’t deal with me and I need to go to A&E. Great. Here I was with no car or money on me needing to go to A&E (back in the town we have just came from!) and I don’t feel particularly well. I just wanted to go home, I’ve wasted enough time and feel if it was that important surely I would have been seen by my hospital when I rang? This is probably just a bug or a normal side effect and I’ve spent the whole afternoon feeling lousy going from one town to the next and wasting my time!
So here I am sat in A&E waiting to see someone to probably be told i’m fine. I just want to go to bed 😦 My mam is dropping the kids back off home as my husband will be in from work now, so at least they are sorted. It’s not really fair to lump this on him when he has just got home tho.
It’s never just a normal day…..
