Morning all. Looking at the time of the last post, I would think everyone is either at work, play or busy doing something.
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes re yesterday. Did say so yesterday, but a couple have mentioned it this morning. Forgot to add that consultant has discharged me and I don't have to go any more. That's after 9 years. Was one of those things that wasn't nasty, but could be. So, unpleasant as it may have been, I was grateful for the followups I received. The back by 10 wasn't home by the way, but into recovery room for my much appreciated coffee.
Hope Matty and Dove are feeling a bit better today and good luck to Bev.
Verdun!!!!!! How could you? Even I couldn't manage 18 donoughts, even if they were mini ones. 6 huge shortbread biscuits, yes.
Got another wall to paint today.
Good morning Tina, I'm still lurking just waiting for washer to finish and then off out. Good news, discharged.
Have fun painting
Morning all- but like you said Tina probably no one still about. Meeting at 2pm so taking it easy 'till then. It is a grey day but the sun may come out later.
Liz have a lovely day, hope the weather is kind to you
Just you and me Bev! Won't even be able to rely on beating you either if your meeting goes OK, which I hope it does. Good luck.
Late as WW morning and time for a chat
I am off to docs today - I can't remember the last time I went but the painkillers I take seem not to be working any more, which brings me down and miserable and aggravates other stuff. Haven't been like this for a couple of years so a check seems to be in order.
Really hope it goes well for you today Bev. Remember to negotiate ot just accept what is thrown at you and keep 'cool'
Discharge from a consultant Tina great
This is beginning to be a health thread,
Well, good health and luck to you all. Good news Tina. Matty I hope doc sorts out your situation
Got to go to foodbank now....sounds like I don't want to go doesn't it?......but I guess I'd rather be in the garden right now. Still good cause
Don't eat too many donuts when you are there.
I have only been receiving a few noifications, checked my spam folder and it is full of them, yet some are coming to the proper folder
I know there have been afew posts on this thread about volunteering. I had to retire from doctoring due to ill health a year ago.
Although I have really enjoyed the time off I have started to find that not seeing people all day is a bit lonely so. today i went down to see Healthwatch an organisation that helps people having problems accessing services and oversees the quality of services.
They have decided to take me on as a volunteer 2 days a week. I got quite a buzz from talking to them and hope I may enjoy the work.
I think volunteering may be a great way to meet people and to do something of value for people that need help.
Good for you Puncdoc. Hope it turns out OK.
Matty, I do hope the doc is sympathetic to your pain. Some try to poohoo pain and tell you you just have to put up with it 'at your age'. Hope I haven't put my foot in it!! I have a fabulous doc who never messes about with try this and try that but immediately sets the wheels in motion to find out what's causing a problem. Ni idea what I will do if she decides to move on. Mind you, don't have to see her that often. Once so far this year!
I have had a disaster yesterday. Son asked if I could wash a particular pair of jeans as he's going away tomorrow. I know, he should do these things himself. Anyway, was dozing away and suddenly thought had I changed dial from doing hot wash. Nooooooooo!!!!! Well he tried them on this morning and said they felt a bit tighter. Don't know how he can say that as they look like they're painted on his legs anyway. He then proceeded to tell me they cost £190!! Looked at the label, made in Taiwan. So he's paid £180 for a designer label cos we all know they are dirt cheap to be made. Blooming ridiculous.
Painted 1and a half walls and had enough. Do the rest another day. Now have 'Pulsating' nails with creamy masonary paint all over them.
TT I go to a pain clinic, it's not a mess around thing and the last time I went they approved an extra, though smaller dose if I needed it so I'm hoping that's what he'll do, just refer to the notes
I've heard of them Matty and was, at one time, going to be referred, but the pain turned out to be something more serious. Do hope that you get what you need. Constant pain is really wearing isn't it.
Verdun, I hope when you are at the food bank you will think if those 18 donoughts you ate yesterday. Shame on you.
I wish we had some more 'smilies'.
Back. Doc has given me the extra prescription but only to stay on until everything settles down, which suits me
He laughed when I said that WW expected me to lose another stone - not necessary - so he will sign a letter to that effect for me. He's one of the good guys I think, It was him that referred me to WW
Good to hear that you got things sorted Matty. At SW, you set your own realistic target. I got to a certain weight, stayed at it for 6 weeks, decided I was happy so, job done. Do WW not do that Matty? I would never have go to the weight specified by those who do all the charts, etc.
WW use BMI but it takes no account of your age (27) and if I reached BMI I would not look right. I know I probably have about 7-10 pounds to go but that extra loss is just too much. I will see how i feel at 1/2 stone extra.
I said 'look at me, do I really need to lose another stone? Gave the GP a laugh anyway
I'm a size 14 maybe a bit less, say size 13
Well, I don't know your height, but that sounds good to me. I've never been less than 16 but am quite happy with that. I weight myself on my Wii now and according to that I'm obese and goodness knows what my BMI is. I don't consider myself obese, just pleasantly plump. I think you have to stick at what you are comfortable with.
Just what I think
All this WW'ing is confusing me!
Same here WW pass the cake .
Have some cake
Thanks Matty get a bit later just had my dinner now off up to mother in laws to put up the 2 hanging baskets i made for her plus brackets to put up first so am off cheers.
