    Is litter getting worse?

    The area I live with my mum is very tidy, apart from the odd plastic bottle on the street and crisp packets flying around, where I live with my dad is the total opposite, as it's a council estate, there's often beer cans, coke cans laying about in the alley ways, trolleys dumped in random places, which is a daily nuisance, one seems to pop up every day, if it's not that then it's sofa's and mattresses left in the parking area which the council aren't paid to clear up, so they just get left until someone reports fly tipping. There was a community practice in place last year to tidy up the area but it hasn't seemed to have done much good, I think they have given up.

    Nothing here yet, not sure what to expect at only 133ft, but had a shower of ice pellets at one point yesterday, at least it wasn't cold rain! In a mad rush clearing out an old shed this morning with a roof that is about to collapse, not sure what I'm wishing for, heavy rain and the floor will get soaked today, any heavy lying snowfall later on in the season and the whole roof will be on the floor
  17. I haven't got NW Extra at the minute so maybe someone with it can dig out the DP's

    What are you planning to eat on Christmas Day?

    I'll be at my aunts as usual with a traditional turkey roast on the big day, leftover turkey on boxing day with ham, mash and more pigs in blankets, pile on the mustard!! Oh and non alcoholic beer as directed by my aunt At least I won't be alone with that one this year as my cousin is pregnant again Think I would prefer to drink pepsi all night rather than becks blue
  20. Anyone know if a sprain would cause this much swelling? Was moving a wardrobe yesterday and bent my thumb back 45 degrees, heard a loud crack, now it absolutely kills and only moves a few cm. Spoke to out of hours doctor but can't see anyone until tomorrow, unless I go down A&E for a cast and xray, also should I bandage it up or keep on excising it so that it doesn't lock up?

      Lol unwritten rule re sunday.

      Also over-the-counter water soluble extra strength solpadeine tablets can work really well as opposed to an oral gel (can also be used in conjunction with the gel). Just bear in mind that it contains codeine, it is a derivative of opiate. Try not to go crazy on it otherwise you can get dependant on it.

      @Optimus Prime Thanks! I've bandaged it up now  to the palm of my hand and have had it under a cold tap most of last night but that didn't do too much for the swelling, woke up to a thumb twice as large as it was before I went to bed lol. I've got soluable solpadeine here with me and got my dad to go out to pick up some of the ibuprofen gel, will call the doctors first thing in the morning for an emergency appointment.

  24. Had my endoscopy done 🙂 took 30 mins trying to get needles into my veins for sedation, 3rd attempt they got blood, then the trainee endoscopist forgot to administer sedation anyway, he then got the tube stuck in my gullet so the senior doctor took over, more painful than expected but eventually got there, and had some colon tissue taken for biopsy. Confirmed sliding hiatus hernia, so going to see the specialist in a few weeks for the biopsy results and next step, hopefully just a diet change and acid reducers instead of keyhole surgery. At least I know now why I am sick a lot and have constant ab/chest pains

      EE, I am very sorry to hear about your awful time having your endoscopy clinic.  I hope that that you won't need to have keyhole surgery and that the treatment and diet change will be beneficial.

      Thanks, the hospital gave me a list of things things I should be eating to help with the condition as well as what I should avoid, but said it depends on each person how their body digests food, so I need to experiment a bit to find out what is best for me 🙂 Have another round of fasting blood tests tomorrow which should reach the specialist within the middle of next week, hoping for good results!
