    >Freak Out

    >Hugs are desperately needed here, I am having a minor freak out about some CP stuff.  Strange how knowing I needed a GP appt to discuss my spasticity is one thing, hearing the nurse say she’d booked me in for “one of the ones tomorrow that we kept reserved for urgent cases” is something completely different.  Even though I do know rationally that she only put me in as urgent as non urgent would have been end of March, hearing a CP related problem classed as urgent has really sent me spinning. Still at least my BP which is why I originally went to the nurse was 144/80 and no…

    >It’s a celebration

    >Four years ago today I was diagnosed with clinical depression.  I was put onto antidepressants and told I would need to take them for six months.  I was later told by a different doctor that I had been told that incorrectly and no one with clinical depression only takes meds for six months as the protocol written by the WHO states six months once stability/remission of symptoms is achieved.  Reactive depression however does tend to have shorter treatment plans because of its differing nature.  Four years and three medications later I have two prozac capsules waiting for me to take them in a minute and the medication dance continues. Today…

    >Thursday Thirteen: Thirteen Recent Things

    > 1. I had my haircut on Tuesday for the first time since September2.

I got to complete the Terramundi ritual I’ve been doing for 14 months last night. I didn’t do it as they…

    >Unfriendly fluids

    >This is a post that doesn’t want to be written.  Every time I try to type something or paste something into this box it doesn’t work as it’s supposed to.  Add to that technical issues and well I’m gonna give up for now. Upsetting an entire latte mug of water over your keyboard and monitor is not a good idea…  Nor is dropping a bottle of shower gel and then running it over with your powerchair in your attempts to pick it up.  It was a full bottle and dropping it didn’t spill any… picking it up however… It did make my house smell lovely and limey however and really…

    >Squeeing somewhat sadly

    >Well, it’s official. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released on 21st July. I’m pretty excited by that news as I’m sure those of you who know me well will have realised I would be.  My first thought was to Squee lots and lots.  After all  I am absolutely obsessed with all things Harry Potter AND this means that my attempts as a part of the 100 Book  I get to include ALL SEVEN Harry Potter books (I will reread all the previous six before the release) on my Books in 2007 page. (which, by the way, currently stands at 9 books and 2,963 pages)But… am I the…
