Your Talk

"I saw my GP on Friday who was amazed I'd even got a community care assessment in the first place as he said they normally have to be referred by the Dr's etc. I explained that I was beginning to understand just how much I was on my own and that if I wanted anything I'd have to fight for it myself.

Actually, having just written that I am on my own, I've now realised that this isn't the case - thank goodness for DPN and it's members!

Anyway, off to fight a battle at the dentist now - his clinic is at the top of 2 flights of stairs...! "
