    Bad week

    Hi folks, sorry Iโ€™ve not been on for a while, the work started on the wet room ๐Ÿ‘ so been stuck in the bedroom sat in a garden which is more comfortable than my wheelchair ๐Ÿ™„ that I could cope with but the I broke my tooth/bridge ๐Ÿฅบ which was so sharp and making my tongue so sore, but couldnโ€™t get appointment as I needed a home visit.It took Phil days and many hours on the phone trying to get me sorted, I couldnโ€™t concentrate on anything I had that much saliva I couldnโ€™t swallow unless I chomped on my teeth loads until I could swallow.
    Finally on Friday someone came and ground the tooth down thatโ€™s all they could, itโ€™s not perfect but brought me some relief ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป so now stopped salivating so much and chomping ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Missed you lot โค๏ธ X

    Oh Janette, someone found that damn Voodoo doll again ๐Ÿ˜ช How awful and exhausting for you...

    We missed you too - I thought you may have gone elsewhere to escape the work and were having too good a time; how wrong I was ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    Good to hear you've been patched up somewhat.

        No pain, no gain, eh?

        When we bought this new house, my bathroom needed to be ripped out and turned into a wetroom and, unbelievably, the vendors said we could do it before we signed final contracts!! Later we found out the lady's brother had MND.

        This act of kindness and compassion saved me so much stress and grief ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

                Oh Janette.. I'm so sorry you are having such an awful time. Life is hard enough without the pain of a broken tooth.

                It must be awful to be stuck in the bedroom and itseems to have gone on such a long time.

                When we had our wet room done I really wanted to go away but the builders weren't keen as they wanted to be able to contact us about rails, tiles electrics etc. It took two weeks and was very noisy when they drilled the floor but at least I was able to get out.

                Just keep dreaming of that ๐Ÿšฟ shower... it doesn't sound like it will be too long. Its funny although probably not funny haha ๐Ÿ˜† the things we dream of when living with MND.

                Love and hugs to you. We missed you. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—xx

                  Lucky indeed!! You'd have been in bed one night and suddenly there'd be a real earth moving experience as the foundations collapsed... ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

                        Nettie sounds very tough and noisy being trapped there, hopefully you are on the last leg and will really appreciate the result. I am away out of my house for 4weeks whilst my adaptations are done, and have been wondering how I would survive as life seemed difficult enough as it is. People have been very kind though. I have had thoughts about what if I get ill, or even COVID-19! If I died during the 4weeks, would the builders immediately put down tools and leave it in a terrible mess for my children? !! Ridiculous I know. Letโ€™s hope weโ€™ll soon be so pleased and relieved! Love, Heather x

                          Heather R yes itโ€™s been very stressful and I wished I could of gone somewhere else while work was being done but weโ€™re on the home stretch now ๐Ÿค—
                          I know exactly what you mean about thoughts I was the same when having a meltdown last week I was shouting at Phil that weโ€™ve waited that long Iโ€™ll probably die before itโ€™s finished!!! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฅบ

                              Nettie snap. Our wet room going in and on Saturday I had a huge meltdown and shouted and scream the exact words to my other half.

                              Then the contents of the top of my dressing table got thrown across the room.

                              Its pants isn't it. X
