Well I've just come back from general practitioner & he was great, he is going to fully support me for IHR and will be in touch with OH doctor.
He seemed quite positive about my chances of getting it because he said he had known other teachers get IHR & were not as bad as me. But I don't want to get my hopes up too high because 12 months ago they made it much tougher to get IHR. Obviously there is still a long way to go because of all the form filling etc and knowing how to word it.
Only time will tell!

Hopefully some of my symptoms will ease a bit now, my stomach has been awful & I've lost half a stone in weight in the last few weeks.

I would also like to say a big thank you all for the support you have given me in the last few weeks while going through the hearing it has meant such a lot too me.

Thank you all

Jensue

Jensue,

I can imagine how relieved you must be after hearing this from your general practitioner. I do hope you'll begin to feel better, but no matter what, please try to take good care of yourself.

Jensue,
I'm glad that things are going towards a better way! Relax and try to smile a bit. Being positive everytime you can have been the thing that keeps me going! They say that pessimist never gets dissapointed, but in the other hand, I think that the optimist can be happy about the smaller amount of good, and it feels better! :)
Take care,
Emmi
