Medical, to the tune of This Mess We're In by PJ Harvey & Thom Yorke 

My partner has just had a knee replacement, can do very little, certainly not look after the dogs, so I'm pretty much a full time carer, and dog-wrangler.

Right now I having a relapse of a condition I had last year which is affecting vision (gunk from mucosa) and movement (fibromyalgia related). Inconvenient, but not a show-stopper.

Had eye check on Friday, pressures are WAY up, and was unable to get a useful OCT...

...due to significant tremor from the fibro stuff.

Pressures are such that I need to see the ophthalmologist as a matter of urgency, but that means a day in Adelaide. Hopefully Herself will be a bit more mobile in a couple of weeks and can be without me here.

First things first, eye drops prescribed on Friday may help with the blindness, not available here, but should arrive from Adelaide on Tuesday.

Teleconsult with my GP on Wednesday - he's going to LOVE this!

Silver lining: client is really busy until the 12th, so I'm not holding things up, work-wise.
