Falling apart at age 26.

I just found out from another friend that Lisa has 6 weeks to live, and I now know the area where she is hospitalised. I should be able to send her a letter now, at least. I still feel sick all the time, and am having trouble sleeping. I wish I could go see her, but this time is for her family. I think I probably only want to go for selfish reasons.

I went to the doctors yesterday about two things, one was a suspicious looking mole(the whole Lisa thing has spurred me into action), and my dodgy shoulder. I've had this pain in my right arm/shoulder for about 9 months now, it's getting worse and stopping me from functioning. I struggle to brush my hair some days. I've been diagnosed with Rotator Cuff Tendonitis/Bursitis, which is what Google told me it was 9 months ago when it started happening. I've now got to take 3 anti-inflammatory tablets a day for 6 weeks. If that doesn't help, physio and steroid injections here I come! I've also opted to have the weird mole removed, better safe than sorry. I am not looking forward to being sliced, poked and stitched.

I just spoke to my friend Bev, and arranged to go round there for a takeaway and a drink next Friday. I can't wait as we've not seen her and Nik for about 10 months. She needs cheering up too as her ankle is in plaster. She went on holiday and injured herself an hour after arriving. What a great romantic break that was, the poor thing!

If it helps, the mole-removal is an in-and-out jobbie. It's sore afterwards, but minor-burn-sore and not post-surgery-sore :)

Hope the drugs help the shoulder, and hope said-drugs aren't full of side effects...

Sorry to hear about your friend. It sucks when you know how long someone has left. I am pretty sure no one would mind you visiting though. Maybe speak to the family if you know them?

And love the photo of your wee one. She's got the curliest hair I've ever seen.

I'm sure Isobel will hate that hair when she's older. It's wild.

That's nice to know about the mole removal. I'll probably faint from the anaesthetic needle anyway, so they can whip it off while I'm comatose on the floor. I hate needles *shudders*.

Well, I had a nasty on my nose for years and years, and was awake when they surgically removed it. I'm a fainter too, but held it together while they sliced my nose open an inch from my eye.
