Healthwise I'm feeling much better. The second blood tests were much improved and the nights when I felt really ill were actually probably because of the ultra-strong antibiotics that I was on; I felt much better as soon as I finished the course. However I have a hospital appointment for different tests (which the doctor has warned me will not be fun) on 10th October, and I have to go back to have more blood tests done in a couple of months.
I've been trying to reply to all the birthday greetings to me that are on LJ today but it's playing up; for some reason I can't reply to comments or view other Journals directly as opposed to through my Friends page. Thanks to all of you; I'll reply once LJ starts working properly again.
