Well I think I found the right answer for both me and my friend. We shall see.
I’m so grateful to have this blog… it might seem like a messy ramble from someone with too dark a sense of humour to you… but to me, it’s a way to work out what I think and start the process of deciding what to do about it.
In this case – I HOPE – I’ve found a way to make the other person feel valued but get my GP to pronounce the way forward – and hopefully scribble it down. It’s such a simple and sensible answer (in my little, humble opinion) that I don’t know why one of us didn’t think of it before!
Hopefully… problem solved. At least I hope I can sleep now, cos it’s nearly up time!
