Hi all :) I have some positive news. My Mum asked me if I wanted to visit my Grandad who is in hospital 2 1/2 hours away. I said sorry I can’t, I usually travel no more than 10 miles from home and avoid public transport.
Well, yesterday afternoon as my Mum picked me up from my forth Hypno session, she said she was going to drop me home & leave straight away. Something clicked in my head, and I said I’m coming !! I knew I could do it, it was so strange & I was excited to go on a train. what ?! I got two trains and when we got to Swindon my uncle picked us up and took us to his. That night we went to the hospital that night & saw Grandad who was in really high spirits, he was so pleased I had come. The last time I visited a Stroke ward (not the same one) was 6 years ago & I caught Noro. I was apprehensive but I really wanted to see Grandad. I was fine, apart from feeling hungry as I hadn’t eaten all day. I got 3 1/2 hours sleep, but I felt at home there & I wasn’t even that anxious when we were driving.
On the way back home today, just as I walked through the carriage a guy said he’d been sick. I think he was hungover though. We sat about 3m away from him but it didn’t really phase me.
I’m getting so much better. Wahoo !!
