    Escaping the Slough of Despond

    Time for a new thread as my old one was getting a bit long - it also seems timely as I’ve come out of a rough patch. It feels like I’ve escaped the Slough of Despond recently and I’d be grateful not to have to do that bit of my journey again

    I hope you don't have to too! Lovely new thread, all sparkly and glittery of course!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    Oh hunni, that must be a worry. Is it a big one? What is the plan? How is Si taking it?

    It’s not big enough for surgery, whatever that means. Though I know surgery outcomes aren’t great anyway. No outcomes are great tbh. They’re just going to keep scanning him - he’s got an appointment Thursday so they'll know more then hopefully. What makes me angry is he was told this by a letter! AAA’s are rarely survivable and they tell him he has this by letter??? Si is ok, I think. We’ve know there was something seriously wrong for a while now so neither of us are surprised, i don’t think.

    Apparently my FIL is low, which isn’t a surprise. He doesn’t want to talk about it. Although I’m normally one to want to talk it out, I don’t blame him. What’s there to talk about? It is what it is

    That's disgusting! I'd be putting in a strong complaint!
    That's a horrible diagnosis. To have that in letter - I'd like to say I'm surprised, but I'm not. Not after the diagnosis my friend got by letter too....

    That's terrible to get a severe diagnosis by letter
