Earlier this week my friend was asking if we should organise a night out into the gay village in Manchester, as he’d seen a special offer at a hotel in the city. We have had a couple of nights out in previous years as our birthdays are just a few days apart, but we’re not always in the mood for doing something like that, due to our various conditions, we hardly ever seem to manage to be in the right mood and the right frame of mind to organise something at the right time.
Very rarely we may organise a meet up in a cafe usually for a catch up, and even more rarely, a ride out to the gay village. We’re used to that now, and both respect the fact that due to our fluctuating conditions we rarely manage to be in the right frame of mind at the same time. Yesterday I spoke to him again after having a think about it, apologised and said that I really wasn’t sure about doing that this year, he was ok about it, as we both have been at various times.
There seem to have been lots of things going on lately, and lots of things ongoing. Next week I have another mental health assessment, and have an appointment to view my health records, as i’ve previously spoken about.
I’m also awaiting the form to fill in from the DWP, and have an appointment arranged (well my dad arranged it) with the CAB the week after next to help me fill in the form to transfer from Incapacity onto ESA. So there will be all that to deal with plus any decision that comes back from that form.
Last night I was in bed at about 6 PM, I woke up at about 3 this morning, then again at about 4:30 and got out of bed just after 5AM. I had a song from Mary Poppins stuck in my head, you know that one where all those greedy bankers are looking intimidating surrounding Jane and Michael in the bank, trying to get Michael to hand over his tuppence? That one, annoying! Haha
Anyway, I seem to be okayish so far this morning I think, so on with the day.
