Anybody who grew up with the BBC will recognise this image as the Test card that used to be displayed before many of the children’s education programs that were used in schools.
It was also displayed whenever there was a problem with the service.
Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been keeping up with my daily posts as I intended. In fact, some weeks I’ve just about managed a weekly post. Even then, they’ve often been comments on other people’s work rather than my own thoughts and opinions.
It’s not that I’ve run out of things to say, but rather that unfortunately this latest round of specialists, changes in medications and ongoing health problems have been taking a toll. As a result I just haven’t had enough spoons to write a post.
However, I am delighted to inform you that both my local hospital and the main ambulatory care clinic are now working towards accommodating my need for email communication for appointments rather than the telephone. They’re also taking my anaphylaxis seriously and making sure that my issues with citrus and latex are flagged with all appropriate staff before appointments.
Unfortunately, it’s no guarantee that I’ll be safe through appointments as I’m still reactive to pretty much all strong scents but at least the risk of exposure to citrus and latex is being decreased.
I know that this is a lot of work for those concerned and I very much appreciate all the effort being taken.
I also want to acknowledge my local offices of Connect Hearing who fitted me in for a hearing test at short notice, and then took the time to adjust my hearing aids even though they really didn’t have the time for it.
Anyway, that’s it for today. I hope to return to more regular posts soon and eventually back to daily posts. In the meantime, thank you to those who let me know that they missed me and asked after me. Your care and concern is very much appreciated.
