My Word of the Week
On Monday it was time for my six monthly visit with my consultant. It turned out to be quite emotional because not only is he not letting me have any other treatment he’s considering taking away the treatment that I have. Purely because it’s not giving me better results and despite that it’s the only treatment that gives me any relief at all. It feels like he’s taken away any hope that I ever had.
There have also been many things to feel emotional about this week and if I wrote about them all in detail then this post would probably go on for ever. So, I’ll keep it brief.
The Little Man has had a much better week at school thanks to his Touchpoints. I felt so emotional when he came home and told me he’d been making friends. Also, he’s just about made it to the end of term activities that are only available to the well behaved children.
Boo came home from school and told me that she got 100% in her R.E, test. This is a great achievement for her and she was so happy and I was so proud.
My Ex Husband is in the Country which is always emotional for our children. But he’s here to spend some time with his sister who is in the later stages of cancer. It’s a very sad and difficult time.
Today I have a big decision to think about which is making me feel emotional. Do I continue to drive? We are looking at cars and there are two which we can afford, but one of them, the one we really wanted, we would not be able to adapt so I can drive it. So, do we get the car we want and I stop driving, or do we get the other car, which we are not so keen on?
I could probably write an entire blog post on each of these things! Well, I already have about the Little Man and his Touchpoints. I will probably write about the hospital visit and the car decision in more detail too.
So now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week?

Sorry to read they are considering cutting your treatment, hope they can come up with something else in its place.
As long as you are still safe to drive I think you should go with the car you can drive and have it adapted, it is losing a level of independence having you car taken away.
Such a lot to process this week. So sorry that your appointment on Monday was such a difficult one. Having to make a decision over the car and whether to continue to drive is a difficult one too. Sorry to hear about your ex-husband’s sister too. Glad that Little Man is doing well though and well done to Boo too on her RE test. Thanks for hosting #WotW
Oh my goodness, what a week you have had. I am so sorry that they are considering stopping your treatment. I am sure that budget is a huge factor in some treatment decisions and I am astounded that they want to withdraw something that is benefiting you. #wotw
I’m so sorry to hear about your treatment Anne, could you ask for a second opinion it seems wrong to take away the only thing that gives you some relief. I’m glad you’ve had some happy news this week too, well done to your little man and Boo, what a great achievement for them both. I hope you can come to a decision about the car it would be a shame if you had to stop driving x
What a week. Why can’t issues space themselves out to maybe one decision a week? Nice to have good news as well. Well done Boo and Little Man. I’m glad they are ending the term on a positive.
Thanks for hosting and I hope next week is more straightforward.
Sending you a massive. Hug. It sounds like you need one. You have had a lot going on this past week.
I am so sorry the appointment with the consultant didn’t go well. I can’t imagine how you are feeling now.
Well done to your Little Man. What a difference the new school has made to him and well done to Boo too! That is an amazing result!
Good luck with choosing the car x
Aw Anne it sounds like a tough week but with sunshine. Well done little man for getting the end of term treats that is such a motivator for him and he really seems to be progressing. And well done Bo that’s amazing. That terrible news about the children aunt it must be sad for them. And the car decision is a tough one, do you go out on your own? Would it reduce your freedom? If so I would go for the option that keeps your freedom, but I don’t envy you making that decision. I hope your consultant comes up trumps and your new treatment is more of a success you really deserve a break and a bit of luck Anne, sending love xxx
So sorry to read that your consultant is being rather difficult. I hope he reconsiders. It seems like all the emotions this week are negative ones, or at least anxious ones. Great job, Boo for the 100%! That is a bright spot.
That’s quite the week you’ve had 🙁 can you ask for a second opinion about your treatment? or are you able to get it privately? Take it all one bit at a time and you’ll get there (easy for me to say I know) sending a hug xx
What an awful week, well except for your little man. I hope they can come up with some other treatment, as just stopping it seems a bit cruel. As for the car, I agree with one of the other comments, go with what you can adapt, as the loss of independence may be too much x
Thanks for hosting #wotw at this rough time x
Gosh some hard times and it must be so hard to lose that support with medication. Sending you my love Anne X #wotw
