I've had my next appointment for the specialist come though - April 3rd. It can't come soon enough, the painkillers are having less of an effect than normal at the time (although that good be the cold weather) and I'm having more occurances of the most annoying pain - a pulsing pain which drives me even further up the wall than normal. I suspose I'll snap at a a few people during the next few weeks as the pain seriously degrades my ability to deal with annoying students/staff. I expect a couple of my friends will also get full broadsides as well.
I think I should find a few mindless shoot-em-ups and put them close by - a long mindless shooting session is very useful for killing off a temper.
Look out everyone madclarinet is getting close to berserker mode - it won't be pretty, thats for sure.
