  1. 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
  2. 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.

  4. Pubs, clubs, forums, and a restraining order, not sure what I could get banned for next lol
  5. 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!

  6. Extremely misty also in Benfleet, about 10 feet of visibility down the a13, not so bad in pitsea, likely mist rolling in off of the north sea?
  7. Thought I'd be adventurous with food after not eating for 28 hours, Potato waffles with ketchup and salad cream, what a bad idea that was, just a heads up 😂 Knew I should have gone with ketchup and mayo if I was going to mix anything

      I get stomach issues and I know how horrible it is. Fingers crossed it's not too bad. :)

      Back now, I spoke to a new doctor who checked BP and pulse, also checked my stomach, BP was slightly high and pulse was not too bad, 112 resting rate. I asked for my endoscopy to be changed to urgent instead of waiting for the 26th, but they said, even if I went to A&E I'd not have it done today as of needing a general anesthetic for it, which needs me to see a specialist first. He said the earliest that can be arranged is in 2 weeks, but that would take me to the 21st anyway, so only 5 days difference, they also refused to put me on any anti craving medication as I'll be going onto Naltrexone on the 13th anyway hopefully.

  8. When it rains it really does pour, with a full on monsoon, mum has just gone to her fiancees house to let him know it's over, after 14 years, and is cheating on him with the same guy as last time (who is a nice bloke). What else is going to go wrong next? 🤨 Not sure what to expect when she gets home. I must sound like I live with the family from hell with my status updates 😔

      Yeah, if tony moves out I may be able to move back in after the lodger leaves, apart from that, I finally got through to rehab and start on the 19th lol

      I've spoken to dad and he said its fine for me to stay here now with mums fiancee out of the picture, just have to confirm with mum, will make it much easier for taxis to pick me up the 6 days a week for the community rehab, from one location, all essex county council funded. Need to get that emergency GP appointment tomorrow though and try to sort mums phone out get it unlocked from her Apple ID account, confirm its network unlocked through itunes, apart from the fact I'm about a month from passing away I am all good, still trying to eat, but cant ant the moment due to stress/anxiety/alcohol/depression/ stomach issues, will find out what on earth is going on inside me soon! Just in a lot of pain, physically now more than mentally

  9. Finally sorted out rehab placement, after about 18 phone calls and miss directed numbers over 3 hours! Should get a welcome pack and call by the end of the week, all info is also going to the key worker, all that hard work eventually paid off! 

    1. Katrine Basso

      Katrine Basso

      That is wonderful news to hear that you have finally being given a rehab placement.  It's fantastic to hear that all the hard work and persistence has finally paid off.👍

  10. Thought Sundays were supposed to be relaxing? Today went down like a bag of horse poo, first find out dads been sacked for punching his boss, next thing I'm pushing myself out going to his girlfriends with him for dinner, sick again, ask to have a nap, go for the nap, they're arguing over bed sheets and the fathers girlfriends nephew comes storming down the stairs for dad exploding at his girlfriend calling her all sorts, fight breaks out and the police get called, im told to leave just before i go to sleep and end up getting a taxi home, throw up in that and had to pay an extra £60 on top of my fare for the clean up... Thought things were supposed to be getting better not the opposite? Oh and I have no idea where dad is.. I assume in custody 😕

    1. Essex Easterly

      Essex Easterly

      Been calling his phone since the argument with the nephew but it's been switched off, so hes either at the pub and run out of battery, broken his phone, or is in custody and they have turned it off. I have no clue 😑

    2. lassie23

      lassie23

      surprised his boss didn't get him arrested

    3. Essex Easterly

      Essex Easterly

      The way he is at the moment, I'm suprised hes not in prison to be honest lol. He came home last night in the end and apologised for what happened, but refused to tell me where he went. He's gone to work now and switched his phone off again

  11.

We can then all then come in at a certain time and make use of the new feature! @Paul https://www.netweather.tv/forum/babble/ Thanks EE
  12. Today is going to be a good day!! I need to turn today around.

    Trying to ignore withdrawals, woken up by police trying to get into next door again, next thing I know im at the toilet throwing up blood. Lets turn this day around and do something positive with it 🤗🤗🤗🤗

      EE, I wouldn't wait till Monday, if you aren't already there get yourself to hospital. 

    2. snow raven

      Hi EE, you shouldn't be trying to detox from alcohol without some kind of medical help.  I had to go as an inpatient in a detox unit where I was looked after by qualified medical staff and given medication to help with the withdrawals.  Are you on a waiting list for a detox unit? If you are, it's best to wait until you are admitted.  If not, please visit your GP or contact your support worker to discuss tomorrow.

    3. Essex Easterly

      I've already had a detox on librium but have relapsed, and now cant eat due to being sick all the time throwing up bile and blood, I'm going to see the GP tomorrow to see If I can get some valium to help me cut back down on the drink again, if that fails tomorrow I'll probably be sent to hospital for an emergency endoscopy, the one I have booked is not until the 26th and I'll be in rehab at that time if I can get myself well enough to start it, the placement is booked for the 19th, and I really don't want to be withdrawing in there, as its community based and they cannot detox you within the center

  13. Had it on for the last few nights, set to 19c, must of been a cold night here because the boilers conked out again, house is currently 15.8c but I can't start the boiler up until everyone's up as it's loud and takes about 15 attempts to kick into life! Will need to get it serviced before it gets too cold if this winter is anything like last year, back then it went off around 30 times overall and the house got down to 7.9c which was not fun waking up to at all!! The boiler temp itself in the loft was reading just 3c and condensation pipes almost to the point up to the bottom of the boiler were frozen solid, had to heat them up with a heat gun each morning to melt the ice down the pipe before starting the boiler up.
  14. There's a good short video on space junk on YouTube I've watched recently. I think uploaded by a channel called reallifelore
  15. Great to see Vettel congratulate Lewis on his success as well as a lot of the Mercedes team in the garage.
  16. Dull day here, quite cold, constant cloud cover and not even any rain/sleet, fizzles out before it reaches me, more chance of rain in my area overnight/sunday morning time last I checked!
  17. Need to get out of this hell hole, attacked by dad last night but no police involvement as I defended myself, hands are wrecked through the scruffle, then I decide to do something positive by walking back to the flat from pitsea and end up with a group of kids giving me gestures and having a bottle thrown to the back of my head, next time that happens the offender is going to be in hospital

  18. Lovely clear sky here too SB, 18/19c and the sun is still strong enough to keep some nice warmth in the air, great that its not windy too. I expect this to be the last day we will see these kinds of conditions, temperature wise anyway, brilliant day for late october!
  19. 19c here today! Perfect that temperatures slowly coming down to what they should be at this time of year, as long as gales and rain don't coincide with it
  20. What a pain in the back side trying to get a trip to las vegas with a criminal record, have to first get a new passport £72.50 (current one is non expired but damaged) new photo, apply for visa application $160, have an interview, fill out criminal record form, get a ACPO certificate from the police for £45, then book an interview with US embassy, and then pay £18 to get my passport back. Thats almost £260 all just to see if I'm allowed entry! Will not be happy if I pay all that and find out it was for nothing 😨
