Today, I went out for the first time in 22 days, to get a newspaper and some bits and pieces. (Monty Python have an old sketch about Prince Walter having to go to buy 20 Rothmans and to bring back the correct change, in order to win the hand of Mitzi, the Princess with the wooden teeth http://www.themadmusicarchive.com/song_details.aspx?SongID=27602 - voice sample + text, some rude language) People with the real McCoy M.E. will know what an acievement that can be after a dreadful relapse -- mine not Prince Walter's I have had (still have) serious problems with inmbalance and feel unsafe on my feet. My doctor doesn't rule out vertigo due to a virus but, because I have had this for so many years, I think it is more likely to be Orthostatic Intolerance. My doctor came out to see me twice, prescribed some medication for high blood pressure (which seems to be working) and wrote a statement of unfitness for work for 6 months in the first instance. This was not deemed "sufficient" for the evil ATOS, who were pursuing me for the fifth time. I am pleased to say that I have beaten them off but, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, they will be back. Who says I'm not safe out on my own?
