6th August

Saturday 1977
Injection in spine 9.30 (a Saturday??)
Fi back from Germany
'new boyfriend' came round
I feel really awful after injection
****************************

I have suffered with a disc problem since I was an early teen... mostly it is ok and the longest I have been laid up was 3 months and resulted in an injection in my spine then too in 2006.
At the back of the diary I wrote this :-

" I arrived at the Promenade Hospital at 9.15.
My appointment was 9.30.
I was to have an epidermal injection at the base of my spine.
The doctor arrived at 11 o'clock (so they weren't on time in those days either)
I lay on my stomach and was injected (with a 3" srynge) with somethingin my spine.
I fainted
I had 3 injections in all
At 11.15 I was seated in a chair and I fainted again
Every time I sat up I felt sick and faint
I left the hospital at 12.15 (blimey no recovery time there)
I must stay in bed for a week (I see from my diary I only managed 2 days lol)

***********************************************
One of my brothers has just got back from having a brilliant holiday in China...... he bought my teen some Chinese sweets. How kind..... mmmmm ??? Very kind but they look way dodgy!!

I mean what the hell is THIS??????


The back of one of the 'sweets' is fabulously translated

wtf is 'thick lquid, tuckahoe... amylum.. notlet...??'

If you can't se this properly it says:-

Validity Period : 6 moths
Keep the method : Room Temperature
Edible Method : Kaifeng is the food
Producyion Date : see the packaging (erm this is the packaging!!)

Sweet anyone??????
