I had a thing the weekend where my big toe started to balloon out of control and turn deep purple at an alarming rate. Thankfully I had a tub of cold water ready and my walking stick otherwise I would have been floored. I spoke to 111 about this.
When my GP's surgery called Monday I said I was just worried about this happening again en-route to the surgery today Tuesday. She kept asking me if I wanted to see the doctor today (Monday). I said no, but that's not what I was was asking. She said see you tomorrow then.
Today I raised the same concern with my GP about getting to the hospital on the 25th. She just said you've got to go. Not what I was asking.
I was asking looking for practical advice. I'm guessing they thought I was just trying to get out of having to attend. I have never missed an appointment in relation to my health in my entire life. Too important.
Life is what you make it.
