Abscess without leave…

So I never made it to Skegness…

On the day I was meant to go, I was awoken in the early hours with a very sharp, and aching pain on the top of my left leg – and found what I thought was a massive boil that looked like a giant nipple!

My support worker came that morning as she was taking me to the railway station to catch the train and I showed it her, and within 20 minutes I was at the GP surgery. After about an hour and a half waiting the nurse went for the GP who did a little surgery to lance it, put a clip on it and dressed it up. I was told then that it was an abscess and not a boil and it needed lancing to let the infection out. I have been given a course of antibiotics and if all is well, I haven’t got to go back, as I have been given some extra dressings to put on myself every other day.

So the seaside didn’t beckon, as seeing as though I haven’t been away for over 5 years now, I’m sure that I can wait a little while longer before I get actually get to the coast again.

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
