Lots of people expressed their concern for scarlatti, said they wished her well, asked me if I was coping, enquired after Greg as well.
Thanks to all of you, it means a lot. Thanks also for the support I'm getting elsewhere.
In other news, I don't like the way that I react to worry and stress and lack-of-information and helplessness. It shreds my system, stops me functioning normally. But after the conversation I had with her as I was leaving work yesterday, I felt a lot better -- and so in the noodle bar next door to the Tun I had the first proper meal I've had since the weekend. This is (at last) a good thing.
Still no proper diagnosis though, still no chance to talk to an on-site biogeek.
