A Week Of Challenges For Wolfie

I've got a feeling this week is set to test me big time! It's going to be a very long week and it will put my whole body, mind and moods to a big challenge indeed and already I have passed the first test. Do you ever feel that a week or even a day is going to be like climbing mount everest? Ok here are the three temptations that will test the endurance, stamina and sanity of Wolfie The second two I are planned the first one happened today! Test One I needed to get out today, I dunno I was just restless and I needed some air, so I went out and guess who I bumped into? Remember that guy Peter? Well yes the guy who made me feel good last week and guess what he totally BLANKED me! When I started talking to him he was as cold as the North Pole, I thought ok, right, fair enough! I could have got upset but I thought no, I wasn't going to let him get to me, I was taken aback tho how someone can be so nice one week and so cold the next, oh well his loss Test Two Seeing another GP tomorrow, it's a woman doctor and I've got my questions lined up for her, I feel that I am going in with a shopping list only it's not food on the list it's problems, I reckon they have me down as a hypochondriac! I am hoping she has at LEAST an ounce more compassion than the other doctor I saw. Test Three Wednesday is the big day, the DREADED MEDICAL I have someone to go with I have been doing a bit of investigation to what they are going to ask, I have a sneaky suspicion that my GP has told them I am fit for work, he was very cagey when I challenged him last week, so I can't see me passing. So this is going to be an interesting week and if I can keep my sanity after all that well I've proved something to myself that I can take the flak, the disappointments and rejections and turn them around. Oh and for my treat after getting through those tests? You've guessed it It's Wolfie's very special night out on Saturday! So have you had a loaded week, a week of endurance that you felt will test every part of you and how did you manage to get through in the face of the challenges? Wish me luck xxxx

I already have sweety and i have been thinking of you all day today little brother. I know that you did really well with Peter the Plonker and that yesterday was not a positive experience but I am praying so hard that today went much better than you dared hope! As for Saturday night I want to hear all about the clocks again! lol As for trying weeks well next week I have my epidural on the monday , acupuncture in one hospital on the friday morning and the combined back clonoc at a different hospital that afternoon! I am trying to stay positive without letting my hopes get too high that I will be pain free! xxx

Thank you for praying I think it worked, I am not going to be overly-confidence except to say that I wish I had the doctor I saw today as my GP. Can I join you for your acupuncture? I love acupuncture, so I would gladly go with you and hold your hand. I found acupuncture very very relaxing and it sends me to sleep especially with soft music in the background, sending you a big hug, I had three guardian angels with me today, mum, you and my beloved nan xxxxxxx Love you sis

I wish you could come with me for the epidural thingy too! lol David has taken the day off work so I won't be alone - well he won't be able to come to the theatre with me but at least he will be with me til it is time to have it done! As for the needles - I love getting acupuncture done too - I had it years ago and I know exactly what you mean - want me to give them a ring and see if there is a spare bed next to me? i am glad things went better than you thought today and thank you for saying I was a Guardian Angel - I would do anything for you you know that , don't you? Hugs my darling little brother now and always! xxx

Sorry to hear about Peter, how weird that he should do a complete turnaround like that. Good for you not letting it get to you though! Best of luck with the medical stuff. I know how hard it is to find a good doctor who will work with you and listen... I'll be thinking about you and hoping for the best. :) As for me having a week of challenges, well, last week was one of those for me with my son's tests and doctors appointment, and the traveling there and back. I'm glad that's over! I can't say there was much of a secret getting through, except that every time Dusty smiles at me, it helps.

First of all very best of luck to you. My best wishes will always be with you. Well really there are some days in yourelife when you need to climb everest. But by being positive you can really break down your pressure of climbing in to the mountain. A positive man in life will always get the important things right. So always be happy and also make others happy. Good Luck Thanks for reading my discussion.

Regretfully, wolfie, we all sometimes have weeks like yours. The way I deal with difficult weeks, or even days, that I must get through is to use some method of distraction and that keeps my mind worry-free. I noted that you are prepared with what you need to take along with you to the doctor, so do things to amuse yourself until the day arrives. As far as the fellow who treated you coldly, consider that he wasn't worthy of your time anyway.

I never went into those challenges, I am the casual laissez-faire not care about anything and for that reason, nothing bad happens me all at the same time. Usually when there was a worry, it was just one thing, because I guess God knows that is all I can handle and when I am worried, that is because I am depressed. Anyway I have one major concern and I do not want to bore people more about it. I guess maybe you were being tested. I mean if you keep in mind what you went before with your last boyfriend, you should know those may turn rather dangerous so perhaps Peter rebuffing you was a good thing. I hope your medical checkup goes well, and if there is something wrong, you get it looked into.
