Going to talk about The Road- a depressing book, but a beautifully written novel.
Decided to venture out to my book club because it was about 15 minutes away by car. Also I’ve been at book club in recent months with a drain tube still in from my operation. I trust this group. They’ve been through health issues with children, grandchildren and husbands. I covered the drain bottle and hoped they weren’t put off. I needed to get out.
All went well until the very end of lunch and I started to feel sick in the loo. I knew I would never be able to drive home. Bad cramps followed. It was a strange, lucky coincidence but L (carer) lives around the corner and took me home. That finished the day. Some days are like this. But the lunch and discussion were very good and it was lovely to see the group. It was worth it. I think you need to trust your friends.
