26.03.20 – Very High Risk

After Boris’s message last week, as a very high risk person, I was sent a text message advising me on what stringent guidelines to follow. After receiving this message I decided to drive back home again. I returned last week because I wasn’t mentally prepared to go back. Being at home is a reminder of […]

17.03.20 – Self Isolation

I was sent home by my manager today to self isolate. Government advice should be followed and yesterday they published new stricter guidelines. You can find the most up to date information on gov.uk. website. My flat mate is now working home, but no need to isolate. So because she is allowed out, it poses […]

22.02.20 – ITU

I’ve been so lucky to have finally landed and started my dream job! I could tell that I’d be happy there from day 1. I’m so motivated, eager to learn and very thankful for the opportunity. I’m always thanking my manager and those who interviewed me for taking me on. I feel as if I […]

12.12.19 – Too Soon

I regret to say that I ended up overdoing it last week! Thinking that I’d be ready to start exercising after 9 weeks post op, I thought I could give the gym a go. Going wasn’t the mistake, it’s what I did at the gym that was the mistake. After having an abdominal operation, you’d […]

26.11.19 – 2020

08.10.19 – Back Again

Soon after being discharged I was back in hospital again with the same problem, same pain but slightly worse, same ward with the same fed up, frustrated feeling. However this time I’ve been treated with 7 days of IV antibiotics and had a CT scan to compare with the MRCP scan I had during my […]

23.09.19 – My Second Home

So I’m back in hospital – as a patient *eyes roll*. I arrived here on Thursday 19th Sept, so I’ve only been here for a few days. Unfortunately I spent most of the weekend waiting around, but I managed to get an ultrasound scan on Friday which as expected, showed nothing. Hopefully having an MRCP […]

03.09.19 – Long Days

Ohhhhhhhh my gosh! I’ve got my first long day this Thursday since 2017. I’m very nervous but I’m sure I’ll be absolutely fine. This means I’ll have more days off and not have to drive back and forth from Wolverhampton. Long days are 12.5 hrs and I’ve done them all through uni and my first […]
