I finally got through to NHS Direct.
It's so difficult trying to explain because they want to know current symptoms rather than the bad symptoms, and first thing in the mornings I've not been too bad.

They're really busy so I'll get a callback in 2-4 hours.

Oh well, it's a start!

Thats great to hear your report that you are successfully navigating the maze of modern healthcare! I pray that you will be referred to a qualified individual that is able to help you.

Although I am new here, I know I am correct in saying many, many people here are thinking of you.

Good luck!

Well it's getting closer and closer :-)
2 weeks to go now!

I've hardly packed anything though, but it's only to the next town and my boyfriend will be staying here, so I can come here and get stuff if I need to.

I've packed some clothes though, and I'll be taking those and my essential toiletries with me on Friday Sept 29th.
I'll get my keys and stuff and then in the evening my boyfriend can bring over things like my computers.

I'm going to try and get a doctor's appt for the Monday - it'll be on the first day of Freshers week, but I'm sure I can find a space in the timetable.

I'm a little worried about how many people will be just out to get drunk and have fun.
I don't drink, I don't smoke, I can't go into pubs or clubs cos of allergies, I'm worried I'll be the odd one out!

Djonma hun, you will not be the odd one out at all. -- Might take a little longer to find your mates, but at least you won't find them while drunk and therefore probably get it really wrong! Remember that I work in a uni and I have lots of students come to me worrying that they're the odd one out -- but so many of them that I sometimes think I should start up a friends service bringing all these great people together! You are a lil' star and you will find good friends that are worth having. And you will have us here all the way!!
