I Was Struggling In The Heat

Early last week, I was struggling in the heat.

On Wednesday, I had my three-monthly B12 injection injection and since then I’ve been feeling a lot better.

Yesterday, when I went to see the Oxted Viaduct, I climbed a couple of short hills in the heat and had no problem.

I have my B12 injections because I’m coeliac and I was at one time low on B12.

Given too, that some web sites report than B12 helps stroke recovery, does that explain, why I made a better than some recovery from my stroke?

At least three doctors, I’ve met, have used the word remarkable when talking about my stroke recovery.

I certainly would create a fuss, if the GP, thought I should stop taking B12. But then I’ve been taking it for at least thirty years.

  1. I’d be interested to know how you got on with getting your B12 injections during the height of the COVID pandemic. My wife was put on a substitute tablet regime for fear of doctor/patient infection. These tablets were far from effective and we were relieved when the GP reverted to the injections.

    • I had no problems at all and I haven’t missed one since I started having them!

      The injections at my current practice can be a bit of a laugh. I don’t need a plaster after an injection or a blood test and one of the good-humoured nurses usually has an appropriate joke ready. My skin is a bit different and seems to heal fast, as these posts show.

      I’m fairly sure now, the accident was caused by a slipping bath-mat.

      The humorous nurse had a bit part in dressing my hand, which is totally scar-free.
