TENBY COTTAGE HOSPITAL

The venue for the Expert Patient Programme meetings - which ran from
1.30pmtill just after 4pm. I was completely drained at the end of it,
and luckily
found a fellow patient with whom to travel back, hopefully he'll stick the
course out and we can travel together. Quite a large group with just about
every level of illness imaginable. I get a good feeling about it, but it
ain't going to be no easy ride!

yes it is, the two people who are "tutoring" us have both done the course themselves, and there is a bit of the chaos of the blind leading the blind, but it's generally a pooling of ideas and resources. One lady walked out as soon as we got to the teabreak - she'd announced at the introductory session that she was managing her life perfectly well and didn't know why she was there, and I thought if that was the case then her action was a tad selfish and she should have shared her secret with the rest of us before leaving!

Glad you found someone who can do the journey with you.
I suppose it's not easy to come to term that life has changed, and maybe this person didn't realise it. But Taniwha probably right as she might have been more a dead weight or maybe not. Wishing you all the best and speedy recovery:-)

Taniwha I know exactly what you mean, I also have run groups and had similar experiences (not to do with health issues though). I started the session feeling a bit out of place among people with much more serious and complex medical conditions (as did a woman with post-natal depression), but we stuck it out, and by the end I found it a quite humbling and enriching experience. Also met a bloke with advanced parkinsons who can't walk without falling over, but he can cycle, which is quite amazing.
