Consultation with BHR on Wednesday
Well it's Monday and I jet off to Belgium on Wednesday for my consultation appointment with Dr Bisanga at BHR.
I'm starting to get a little nervous but not as much as I expected, probably becasue I have had other things to occupy my mind but I know my whole system will probably go apeshit when I'm at the airport or waiting to get on that flight.
Did I mention I hate flying? Yes, well I'll maybe just mention it again!
Add to the fact that when researching taxi companies to take me there and back once I arrive I noticed that people were saying there are a lot of rogue taxi companies in Brussels who will completely rip you off and as I'm only taking 200 euros I'm a little worried about getting suckered by one of these and stranded in the middle of Brussels. From the airport will be fine as there are official ones parked outside but what about from the clinic back to the airport? I wouldn't be able to tell a good taxi from a bad one and that's where the risk lies.
I'm going to chance my arm and ask the clinic if they wouldn't mind phoning me a taxi as I'm sure they know a reputable company (I hope!).
It's going to be a long day alright. My plane leaves Edinburgh at 5:50am so that means me getting up at about 1am in order to get there in good time, then I arrive in Brussels at about 8 or 9 and then I have 6 hours to kill before my appointment at the clinic at 3:30pm and then another 6 hours before my flight back at 9pm.
A good book will be essential methinks!, that is if I dont pass out asleep as not only with ai be tured from getting up so early the tranquelizers I'm taking to ease the flight jitters will pile on the sleepy eyes on top of that. I'm not a big coffee drinker, green tea is my thing but I think I'll be getting a big mug on arrival just to give me a nudge.
I think my worst fear is getting lost at Brussels airport on the way back and missing my flight. I've never flown alone before and when I did I always let someone else figure out what to do and where to go. No idea how to read airport boards or any of that and looking at the map of Brussels airport......well safe to say I can't really make head nor tail of it, but I guess I'll have that 6 hours to get everthing sorted adn I'll quite happily sit in the departure lounge outside the gate for that amount of time.
Storm in a teacup indeed but I guess new experiences are always like this.
And on t the subject of hair (finally) I pretty much know what I'm going to say to Dr Bisanga because I know what I want. Whether he will say he can give me it is another story but I'm sure a compromise can be reached. I have sent Stephen the UK rep some videos of Dr Bisanga's work, some which I lie and some which I don't like just to show the kind of end result would be prefereble in terms of graft placement at the front becasue some are lovely and staggered with a very natural gradient at the front line where as other examples appered to be quite harsh and a noticablely over straight hairline which I want to avoid .
As I'm sure I've mentioned in previous entried this is Phase 2 of a 4 phase program I'm doing for myself. this is undoubtedly the hardest part (bar the procedure itself) because so much is unknown about everything but I'll feel much better once I'm back with my arse on my own couch with all the details and all the flying rubbish behind me (and with a better understanding for next time!)
So that's about it and hopefully by Thursday I'll know a little more about my future. It's a lot of running about for a 30 minute appointment but it is an importaint one so I'm glad.
Here we go.......
