I don't now whether to laugh or cry, but feel more inclined to laugh: yesterday we received an appointment to attend a needs assessment with our local CPN, or community psychiatric nurse as I have just discovered!
It turns out, when I talked to her on the phone, saying that we had no need of help and had no intention of going to the appointment, that one of her main worries was that I hadn't seen my GP for about twelve years. Well, this is true, but I had been working on the assumption that you only go to see your GP if you are unwell, so I hadn't. Since the waiting room is normally full of snot nosed children, I might have caught something.
This CPN also didn't know that David was a medical doctor, the appointment was for both of us since he was down as my care giver.
Well, I will send her a link to the Catalyst programme, my website and David's MS treatment site. I will also forward it to my new GP, the former one having retired.
