Last Monday I was back for another research appointment at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

As usual, they had booked a taxi to take me from my home to the Hospital and on arrival it wasn’t long before I was greeted by Alice the research Nurse.

We went through to the room and Alice explained that is was to be a quick appointment this time.

We went through the usual research questionnaire and the sitting and standing blood pressure and Alice gave me the next lot of tablets to take..

Then Alice asked me to wait in the waiting room for my Neurologist to come to see me.

Unbeknown to me, Alice was concerned that I wasn’t myself and had called my Neurologist to come and see me, whilst I sat in the waiting room.

The Neurologist came and explained why she was there and we talked for a while about what had been happening to me since before Christmas.

We talked about the increasing challenges and the fatigue which has plagued me for sometime but she was happy for me to continue in the research study.

With that, we arranged the next appointment and a taxi was booked to take me home.

Another simple appointment, with the addition of an extra opportunity to talk to my Neurologist.
