Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, rosie. You really do get all the luck! It would be nice to think that someone actually did some work occasionally.
Although not good to hear that you are having so many problems Emmy it is good to know that you are still out there. My speech seems to go in 'days'. I had a good day yesterday but today has been absolute rubbish and I have been virtually incomprehensible. I don't know that having transferred to taking soluble Paracetamol has helped but I couldn't go on scraping them off the inside wall of my throat for much longer. I am actually quite frightened of even starting to take pills now as nothing seems to want to go down and the ones that aren't actually capsules stick to my throat and start dissolving, which is very painful and nasty and somehow it is best to try to get them back up and spit them out. Charming. Then I vary from too much, sticky saliva and dribbling to not enough saliva. Where is the medium - even if it is not the happy medium?
Life's a bitch - then it has puppies.
