What’s the worst that could happen?

Tomorrow is the first appointment for my neck since leaving Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

I have had numerous appointments for my arm and my hand there. Being under 3 different specialists and having seen several doctors there already, it can all get a bit exhausting and confusing.

I don’t know why, but I’m scared. I know that my head can’t just drop off, as it is screwed on (I know this as I’ve seen the impressive x-ray) but I think I’m so used to my new ‘normality’ now that I’m scared of the change.

I’m worried that a bit of pizza crust might’ve become lodged in my neck-brace and it’ll fall out on the doctor. This is very very unlikely….as I don’t waste pizza!

All in all, what’s the worst that could happen?!

If there is one thing I’ve learnt from this whole experience, it is optimism. I have always been quite negative, worrying about every single part of every single thing for every single moment. That bit of me hasn’t really changed but I try to find the positive outcomes now and I might walk home tomorrow with no neck-brace on….then again,  I could go home with the same neck-brace without them even putting fresh padding in, but that’s the worst and I’m still alive to tell the tale!

Have a good day and keep an eye on the tabs ( ^^ up there ^^ )….I’ll get a bit more of the story written soon, maybe! x
