Thanks to Dr Feelgood and Maggies cancer centre at Charing Cross Hospital I'm getting some money from the state (until George Osborne cuts it off) a Freedom Pass for free travel in London and best of all.....I've got a disabled parking badge:
This time last year I was in so much pain I couldn't travel to hospital on the tube - we had to take the bus and I would be screaming every time it braked or turned a corner.
It would take me a week to recover.
Later on I was using the bus for months with a walking frame - I was not popular, I can tell you.
I'm a lot better now but the journeys to Hospital are still gruelling.
I used the pass twice yesterday to celebrate!
It's also sad because you have to be quite ill to get one, unless you lie. Now I get up to all sorts of things (we have plans for this week!) but getting about is really painful so I actually do need one.
So while getting the pass is a big deal it's also a sad moment for me too.
Mind you, Robyn's really celebrating!.
