Feelings of occasional adequacy...

Published by MarkE in the blog MarkE's blog. Views: 381

Well, life can be a swine I grant- only just getting my sugars back under control after the Glibenclamide was swapped for Gliclazide following the stuff vanishing from Milton Keynes for a month or three at least. Add that to a certain level of sight loss, and occasional Shingles pain, and kidney stones, and you can no doubt understand that I do sometimes feel a tad frail of a working day.

That said, there are things which lift the spirits instead, let me feel more like a properly constituted human being: for one, I am in work (lucky, lucky man- I've been BOTH sides of the Jobcentre Plus counter in my time...) even if only part time, for another I have a wife who loves me near as much as I love her, and for a third: well, even with eye troubles I take a **** fine photograph (even if I am the one saying so!).

Annual review at work coming up, and as ever I feel the dreads creeping up. Hi ho. I'll focus on my stronger features until the day comes again.

To you all- fare you well this ending year!
