Back from Norfolk...

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

Had a lovely week in Norfolk with Kev's family, manage to get down to the coast one day and Bury St. Edmunds another day.

 

Unfortunately I was ill when I came back; I had a chest infection (but luckily it didn't happen while I was away). Also I had been weened right off the dexamethasone the week before, which may have added dramatically to my brain problems or the brain was swelling, but I became a jibbering idiot. I thought I knew what I wanted to say, but I just couldn't get the words out or the wrong words out, so it was very frustrating for me and who ever was at the receiving end!!! Things are slowly improving, with the occasional hiccup where my mind goes completely blank, but now the family understands what the problem is, they know if they wait long enough, I manage to spit it out!!! I wish I could do a re-run of some of the conversations, I'm sure they must have been very funny, especially the blank expressions on families faces.

 

Hope this is finding you all as well as possible.

 

Regards

 

Sandy B

Hi Sandy,

 

I'm so pleased to hear that you've had a lovely week in Norfolk (a beautiful county, especially if the weather's good! ;) ) So sorry to read that you've been suffering with a chest infection, though and have had problems communicating with your family; it could possibly be the discontinuation of the steroids as you've suggested, as perhaps the drug was helping with inflammation in your brain. Mind you, I often behave like a jibbering idiot, anyway, without any help from medication, so I don't even have that excuse!! ;) :wacko: :lol:

 

Best wishes,

Hello Sandy

 

I think it's called "word salad" speaking the wrong word ad basically making no sense. I am glad you all saw the funny side of it, having good memories is going to be helpful for your family in due course and something you can enjoy at the time.

 

Take care.

Hi Chockers,

 

My partner's family live in Thetford, Norfolk so we have frequent visits. Love visiting Southwold on the coast and Diss is very pretty.

I used to live in Suffolk, well born there, stayed around for 28 years.

 

Moved to Norfolk about 32 years with work but got married here .

 

I used to live near Southwold, but its a cold old hole in winter .

Also 9 miles from Diss on Suffolk border .

 

But live in West Norfolk now near Sandringham .
