Irralevent breasts and drag artists!

Hurrah, I finally got some of my DLA, I have paid most my bills off, and I can finally get my bro and dad presents and not feel worried I never get them anything! I only got the Care component and have asked them to look at my Mobility part again. My Rheumo, Dr Sanders, is looking into my MRI I had last year looking to rule out Sacroiliitis (inflamation of the Sacroiliac joint) and Ankylosing Spondylitis [claire: Ankylosaurus Spongebobitis) (A form of Arthritis that effects the Sacroiliac Joints and the spine.)

So fingers x'ed I get the results quite soon.

On another weird and wonderful note. As I was walking from the bus stop home after my Dr's appt today and I guy asked me about Letty, I said I get severe pain in my leg but am waiting to find out what it is. (having to explain Fibromyalgia is hard normally) But this guy was wearing full army gear, desert camo, helmet and backpack!. He said he does a drag act and "wanted to be gay" I asked him if he had a boyf, he doesn't but his g/f's a prostitute who steals his money!

Then after I told him to take care of himself and think about getting a new girlfriend, I walked slowly home, making sure he didn't see where I live!

Tonight I am looking forward to take out with Geth, missing Oli cos he is away in London for work, and doubling up on my Lyrica! (I Lycra girl!)

Oh poor sickly me!

Was at the Doctors on Friday getting antibiotics, as well as the money I have just spent on the Tramodol, means I am spending ALOT! Luckily I discovered a pre-payment certificate which means I am spending £102 a year rather than £400. ;)

I am still really poorly though, and my skin itches from the Tramadol.

I was chatting ot my friend Lita on the phone ( I miss her but we are gona meet up soon!) I had to cut it short cos I nearly threw up!

Can't wait for this infection t go, the new painkillers are working wonders for me :D

Loves and hugs to all xxxx

How to save money on Prescriptions: Get a recepit FP57 if you are unsure if you qualify for help with costs.
Send off for a HC1 form you maybe entitled to even a small discount

And if you buy more than 3 items in 3 months it is worth getting a Pre-Pay Certificate. (I have just saved £324)

Check out this link http://www.ppa.org.uk/ppa/hwhc.htm
To see if you can get FREE prescriptions

If you are unsure apply anyway, but always get your FP57.
