I found a book that helped me hugely. Fibroids The Complete Guide to Taking Control of Your Physical, Emotional and Sexual Well Being by Johanna Skilling. All I can say is I wish I had found this 3 years ago when I first got ill. She answers so many questions that no one else has been able to answer or even thought to address at times. It's a scary read but one I would recommend for anyone that is suffering from Fibroids or knows someone that is. She tackles the issues that effect you emotional that medical professionals don't even think about. I learnt just how unlucky I am, I am generally of a nationality, age, diet etc etc that should not have any problems but no, lucky me, I have the worst and most uncommon kind of fibroid!?! At times I was in tears about the prospects I might yet have to face and also just that someone got it.
My friend Sophie brought over her baby Alice to see me for a few hours and it was a lovely relief. Then D took me out to the fireworks for Bonfire Night - it was about a one hour round trip and that is about all I have been able to manage each day is an hour on my feet - so it was a lovely way to spend that hour. Guy Fawkes actually plotted his attack just down the road from where I grew up, a little known fact I only found out recently.
The streets where I live are normally very very quiet - I was amazed at the amount of people decending on this firework display - it was also quite something to hear thousands of people singing along to 'I've got a feeling' to count down the fireworks starting.
