I've just got back from a romantic day trip with Dave.
Yep, we got to take a 260 mile round trip to Addenbrookes in Cambridge for my post op check. What's more, in an almost unbelievable bit of NHS organisation they managed to schedule a bone density scan (for the osteoporosis) and an ultrasound (for my gall bladder pain) and a consultant appointment ALL ON THE SAME DAY!!!!!!
I know, it's too much.
Nadine Dorries please note : Yes, all that tweeting was from the car on the way to a hossie appointment. my eyes are strained and my iphone went black-screen-of-death in protest just as Lancing college came into view.
Nonetheless, if any of you haven't checked out the #Projv hashtag on twitter you really should. "Tweet Stories" from countless sick and disabled people explaining why DLA is vital to their dignity, quality of life and survival. It's had phenomenal support with slebs and politicians joining us sickies to tweet in support. Still, not as important as Justin Bieber's latest hairstyle obviously, as we aren't quite trending, but an amazing campaign.
A MASSIVE congrats to Broken of Britain who again dreamed this up and go on!! If you've never tweeted, try one in solidarity of sick and disabled people everywhere using #Projv after your tweet.
Why #Projv? Because our massive hearted coalition chose today, Valentines Day, to end the consultation on Disability Living Allowance (DLA) cuts that (amongst other sickening cuts) will leave the most disabled without power wheelchairs or transport. . In fact the deadline has been extended until Thursday, but we're only a bunch or sickies and they didn't announce the change til Friday, so hey! A good campaign idea is a good campaign idea. So Project Valentine it is. But unless our hearts - and lives - are to be truly broken, we need you all.
Have a tweet!! Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on. You know you want to ;)
