    It’s a good idea but what if they stop my medication, i need it, not so much of it but I’m addicted, there’s got to be a way of through!!

    If you need the medication then they won’t stop it, you need help now so call them and talk.
    Hopefully you will sorted soon

    They have a duty of care whether it be physical or mental or both!
    did you get a call back from a doctor?
  • crippscripps Member Posts: 412 Pioneering
    Yes the doctor called me back but basically all he indecateted was to stay out of the sun but as i tried to explain it isn’t the sun raise but the heat it’s self.

    Well try staying cool, cool drinks, blinds or curtains closed use a fan etc,

    Id call your gp tomorrow morning to try and see them ASAP

    It’s a bit of a shame, I’m sat here in the dark and like you say with a fan and unable to enjoy this gorgeous weather we’re having. I’ll call my GP tomorrow and see what he has to say, not hoping for too much from him he’s good at giving out pills but anything beyond that there useless.

    Hi everyone, well i saw the doctor this morning to try and sort out  my medication and dealing with this heat but blow me the reason I’ve been feeling so ill and having some funny occurrences is that I’ve had a miner stroke. I never thought anything of it but a few weeks ago one side of my lip went numb and I’ve been having problems with my left eye. I’ve just returned from the hospital where the doctor sent me and just about to tuck into my macaroni cheese feeling a little bewildered, it’s not really sunk in yet because i never thought anything else could go wrong with my body but there you go it has. More medication to take and more heat to deal with so I’ve just come round in one big circle ⭕️. Life’s a bit of a pig sometimes.
