It wasn’t so scary after all…

Wednesday afternoon saw me up at the Royal Victoria Hospital once more. This time I wasn’t in my usual haunts of Level 3 in the old building. It was Level 3 in the new building. For those of you who don’t know the RVH, it’s a sprawling building which has been extended and rebuilt on a number of occasions. The latest rebuild has many levels none of which line up with their counterparts in the previous build. This causes much fun.

Just another fall…

I had another fall this evening. I was coming downstairs to get my dinner that Andrew had made for me, but when I got to the bottom something happened. I don’t remember falling, but I do remember coming round lying on the ground in the hall. Fortunately, I don’t seem to have damaged myself. And throughout the day I have been having lapses.

I think that I can safely say that as far as I am concerned the transfer from the old regimen to the current one has been a success. On Wednesday coming, I am up to the HIV Clinic at the RVH for my first check up since changing meds. Andrew says that I am looking much better since the change. Certainly, even I notice that I am not quite as tinged with yellow as I had become used to being. Let’s … Continue reading Progress Report: Eviplera – tiredness

When I go… will they cry?

Last night was difficult – I’m not quite sure why, but it was. I was watching the last episode of Series 1 of Queer As Folk (American version) with my friend Andrew. Right at the end of this episode is the scene where Justin Taylor, played so excellently by Randy Harrison, ends up as the victim in a vicious homophobic attack. Justin is taken to hospital, and there is a lot of crying, not just on screen – but in the audience. I said something then that I possibly shouldn’t have. But I’m repeating it now to see what others … Continue reading When I go… will they cry?
