Under the hammer!!

Feels like i'm sloowly becoming totally exhausted,never enough time in the day to complete all my tasks. too many deaths, funerals and inquests, Being a caregiver for the last 12 years has really hammered me physically and mentally but I soldier on day after day. The straw that nearly broke my back happened on the 11th march 2005 when another vehicle crashed into the back of our motability car as I was stopped in traffic, I heard a screech of brakes and whammo I got a neck injury,lower back injury a bruised kidney and a thumping headache to this day.
The hospital i attended weren't too interested I got 2 paracetamol, no xray no collar. I had to wait 19 days to see my GP at last some interest!! I'm now awaiting physiotherapy for my injuries....Doc can't give a date for assessment or treatment.He did prescribe diclofenac...I hope it helps!!

My car insurers were ok the car went in for its repairs today If i'm really lucky i will get it back in about 2-3 weeks, personal injury compensation has been applied for so again its a waiting game.....How long is a piece of string?

Sorry to rant,I'm glad this forum is here..... at least I know I'm not alone
