Well, I don’t normally write much about personal stuff here, but it’s just getting too much now. I woke up an hour ago and since then my partner called to tell me he’d been fired for “complaining about his job to his staff”, and my Mum called to tell me my Dad’s had another seizure (he was diagnosed with a malignant meningioma in his brain a couple of months ago, it was surgically removed and he’s had radiotherapy to try and prevent recurrence, but now he’s still having seizures, and we really don’t think he should be).
My own problems I can cope with, but now I just don’t really know what to do.
Edit: happily, we heard back from the consultants treating my Dad that the seizures are almost certainly caused by brain swelling resulting from the radiotherapy, and they should likely go away when the swelling goes down. So that’s a big relief. Now, back to job hunting…
