Thanks for the comment on my blog - in spite of a lot of creaking, too many overpaid people at the top end, etc., our British National Health Service is still something which we hold very dear; healthcare free at the point of use for all, not just those able to afford private healthcare or insurance, is something which we all willingly pay into although there are areas which are badly in need of reform. I'm not convinced that what happened to me yesterday was quite what I think falls into the category of 'reform' but BOY did it take my mind off 5 weeks of agony for a while!!! And writing about it took my mind off the pain too, i even laughed as I wrote the blog!
This pesky weight business is one thing but SP brings together all sorts of people and experiences and the whole thing enriches my life and weight struggle.
Keep at it - you are a most attractive a lady whatever your weight!!
