My car should be ready today but I can't get a lift to collect it until Saturday.
I think I'm going to leave it on DD2's drive once I get it back, hopefully it will be safer there. I'd rather just sell it, I'm giving up driving in November so it's not really worth keeping it. I just need to convince Steve! He needs me to keep driving so I can take him for his blood tests and collect his prescription.
In response to some of the comments.
We can't change Drs as we are classed as No Fixed Abode, we have been with our current surgery for 15 years and they agreed to keep us on their books. Our only other option would be to change to The Drs in DD1's village but we have no way of getting there.
The last time I contacted the practice manager it was to complain about being diagnosed as diabetic. I am not diabetic and know enough about the readings the Dr was quoting to know it was bullshit. He was pushing the Cambridge diet, his wife was a Cambridge Consultant, I complained and received a very shitty reply from the Dr concerned. He has since left the surgery.
I know that Drs have been told to offer more f2f consultations but most still aren't.
Steve's symptoms aren't new, they are from his stroke, as for depression, the surgery are aware of it but there is no cure for that or his anxiety. Hence the "Go away and live with it" reply, as Lame Wolf says, she was given the same response as many others have been.
When Steve first left hospital I was assured that there would be lots of help available. There wasn't, we had six weeks of daily visits from the early discharge team but nothing else. The local stroke club meant I got a couple of hours break every week but that closed once the pandemic hit.
Steve has good days and bad, I try to ensure we do a little as possible on bad days. In three weeks time we will be travelling with friends which will make things easier.
