Friday Evening.

I don't know if I'm any better, but I have eaten, drunk plenty of water, and napped. I'm now back on the couch.

I am feeling calmer and less panicky about the situation at least. But I'm keeping movement to an absolute minimum.

There's food in the fridge. Eldest Brother and GardenGirl were here earlier today (and finished the wicking bed, there will be photos), and Eldest emptied the cat tray for me. (It's supposed to be done by homecare, which I didn't have this week, and it does involve the sort of effort I could normally manage in a pinch but really, not today. And Tuesday was homecare today so the situation was getting a bit urgent).

Boyfriend is probably over tomorrow or Sunday, he'll shop if it needs doing.

Today I was supposed to have both homecare (in lieu of last Tuesday) and my regular scheduled shopping, but they once again couldn't send a regular. And as there was no way I could go the shops myself, I really couldn't trust anyone to go on my behalf other than my regular.

Ditto the housecleaning - I'm just not in a fit state to explain things to randoms.

~~~

So there were a few phone calls to and from council. Random people, all working off a computer screen who know nothing about me. And then something magical happened - I got one worker who was trying to nut things out and told me that from now on I was to ask for her directly, and she'd sort things out.

You have no idea how happy this makes me.

I'm so glad you're feeling calmer, Ali. It's scary to feel horrible and not know what's wrong.

Hopefully the personal touch will make all the difference to the services you get.
