Those of you that have been my friend for a while, know I had two small strokes a year ago, which caused epileptic fits. I take medication for this which [touch wood] has prevented further fits. I also have very painful arthritis in my knees and hips, which is why I have not had a job for five years. Terry went to sign on the other day [having lost his job] and he was informed that I must also do so or see my doctor to get an exemption certificate. I know this sounds easy but I hate bothering my doctor for anything, have an over developed sense of pride and have a disconcerting habit of bursting into tears when I feel awkward, which in turn, makes me very tetchy. Not the best of scenarios, eh? Right now I am wringing my hands at the prospect. Note to self…..try to stay young in future.
