Hey everyone, I hope you all had a better year-end to 2016 than the year itself. Dang thing was out to get us all.
I spent mine in hospital.
Nothing serious, honestly not even really surprising; I've got MS and I got a relapse. My legs stopped responding while I was on a train going up the Country, so I was carted off to Manchester Hospital for a week of steroids. 2 other relapses kicked in while I was there, so I wound up spending nearly 2 weeks on a ward while my body remembered how to operate.
It sounds weird, but it was a positive problem to have. They had planned to get me home before new years, but I was adamant it was a bad idea. They called me 'overdramatic' until they realised that no, sending me to a flat with no electricity, no food, and no means to change either of those over the new year, would be sending me to die, under no uncertain terms. This meant a lot of other services and after-care kicked in, to ensure once I'm out I won't be left flailing like I had been.
So things are moving. And at some point so will I. But right now I'm stuck inside while my energy comes back, and grateful to the family - none of which are close where I am - who have been doing everything in their power to keep things kicking along, too. I love them dearly.
I don't want to put too much stock in 2017, but I kinda want to change my life from here. B)
