Well 2 say the least I saw stars and now have a decent size egg on my forehead! Must admit it did shake me at the time! Luckily wind died down now ~but tell you what I won't be wrestling with any more bins in the future!!

    Anyhow you take it easy and wishing you well for tomorrow!!Let me know how it goes!

    Kath:-) :-)

  • hi Kath i'm feeling low at this moment just been making my tablets up for week and it nearly drove me mad to think that all this tablets i'm having to take some days i feel like taking the lot and have done with it. then the check up tomorrow i'm like a jelly inside thinking has it done this or this, it feels like my world is falling apart. the only thing at this moment that's stopping take the lot and that how you my dear friends would be if i was dead it would upset you all and i don't want that with me, plus i've just read your post and your egghead is covered by your fringe, i would love to see that, i know its not nice but i try and imagine what you look like i'm sorry i shouldn't be thinking of your pain naughty Alan take care speak to you tomorrow and don't worry i 'm not going to do anything daft its just the way i'm at this moment take care big hug for you from your friend Always Alan xx

  • Hey Alan no wonder you r feeling low!! With all that's going on ! I suffer with terrible Anxiety and panic (always worse on a morning) I can imagine all sorts happening! I worry if I've got nothing to worry about! I don't take any meds just Propranolol if it all gets too much! I put on a brave front and people don't believe I suffer the way I do!

    Well work 4 me 2 day! I find keeping busy is better 4 me!

  • Hi Alan - sorry to hear of your "shadow"...looks like the Medics are on to it. Good Luck!

    Apologies for not being in contact for a while. The hand op came through earlier than expected, so "bit the bullet" and had it done a week last Friday. (Trapeziectomy) They remove a smallish bone at the base of thumb - mine was shattered.

    Still in heaps of pain, and not able to do tons of things - typing one handed now.

    Stitches out this Friday, so hopefully more comfy after that. Fibro has not helped, but one good thing is that I am sleeping more than the usual 4 hours.

    Adopted a second pusscat in October, and she is great company when I'm chair-bound....however she resents me reading and sits on the book or paper!

    We have made no def plans for Christmas - the younger members of the family "do their own thing" and we just see them briefly. That actually suits us well, as we prefer to be quiet (and peaceful !) My brother and wife live about 45mins drive from here, and he is also in plaster (his knee joint repaired - we both have OA) - so we may go over there this weekend to exchange gifts etc.

    Do you have family/friends that you see sometimes? Being on your own too much does nothing for morale, does it? I was like that for about 7 years after divorce from first husband.

    You know you have friends on here who are rooting for you - so here's wishing you a happier-than-usual Christmastime, and something good to look forward to in 2016.

    Lin and Taz

  • Even if you do not have a "labelled" faith, the Salvation Army are marvellous with folks living on their own. I used to go and have a (free) meal with them on Christmas Day as it was good to have company at that time of year. They also have a volunteer "buddy" scheme, where someone can visit on a regular basis, without pushing their views on you. Just having a sing can lift the sagging spirit ! It takes some courage to reach out when you have been secluded for so long, but worth a try........



  • hi Lin sorry to hear you have had an operation and the pain you must be in hope you get better soon. yes the medication is doing it job go again on monday for 2nd check up let hope it smaller than last week. i've been divorced now 14 years and still on my own thanks for you message on the holiday that's i don't celebrate xmas no point my family has spoken to me in 14 years the amount of friend that visit you can count on your operation finger. glad you have a new cat i love animals i have a cat, and four guinea pig that's my only friendship apart from you kind people on here. has for typing with one hand i'm can only type one handed so i'm use to it. take care hope yours thumb gets better soon take care many thanks for your reply speak to you soon Alan

  • Hi Alan....sorry it has taken me a week to get back to you. The pain has been horrendous, on top of the Fibro and feeling "blue". Not sure how I would cope on my own - my hubby can be grumpy at times, but he has a good heart and we have a "tried and tested" friendship.

    Like you, I have always been more at ease with animals, ever since being a tod, and it is like a mutual healing relationship.....hope that is the case for you. Altho I care for all animals (and have had a variety over the years) I do love cats and guinea pigs best. I used to breed guinea pigs, and really enjoyed seeing the variety of their offspring!

    The noises they make are so amusing are'nt they? I used to have a very special cat, Mandy (she lived to 14) who must have been a "good samaritan/doctor" in some previous existence, because she often brought me injured animals to care for, including other cats and lost dogs. She glared at me if I stayed up too late, when she knew I needed to sleep.

    There are some good progs on TV this Christmas (unlike the endless repeats!) Do you have any favourites? We are avid Strictly fans - I used to be a dancer, but never quite cracked ballroom - not knowing my right foot from the left! My lovely Mum (who died in 1996) made some gorgeous costumes, so she would love that part of it, if she were alive now. Also love the period plays, like Downton - sad it is ending this year.

    I'm not the only friend on here wishing you some personal warmth this Christmastime, so allow yourself to smile, knowing that.

    Take Care,


  • hi Lin please don't worry if it takes you a long time to reply. the pain you must suffer must but horrendous, i just went shopping yesterday and my legs were killing me with pain so i know if i don't reply to someone its because i've got to get over the pain first which if truthful you never do, but when it starts to easy of then i can think straight.

    my cat who's name is Jasper who's a male and my four guinea pig's they are all girls they like you bring my more happiness which the way they know when its there treat time, has for Jasper he is deaf so he's not allowed outside unless i'm with him.

    i know a lot will be celebrating Christmas but i won't and haven't done now for 14 plus years my family ignore me and haven't spoken to my for 14 years so this time of year is just the same as the rest in my book, its only since March of this year since i came on here have i got any real friends like you, my life is empty i don't watch tv unless top gear is on world's weirdest weather thing like that are on. anyway i hope you have a good time speak to you soon take care Alan xx

  • Thanks for reply Alan. Typing, specifically on my IPhone is still tricky.

    Will try and send you a msg on the 25th....this has to be a special date for me, as my daughter was born in the early hours of 26th, 1967. She was given up for adoption (long sad story). However, after almost 3 years of searching, we were reunited in 2013.

    I know what you mean about TV in Nov/Dec.....makes you feel yuk, all those "perfect world" adverts and insincere bonhomie! Maybe it is our age, but we prefer to keep it simple. Just the folks we REALLY care about.

    That includes YOU Alan, so have a small tipple in your mit, to all the friends on this site!!


    Lin x

  • hi Lin that's ok and with what happen back then is then what is now is now, at least you together and happy that's all that matter, yep i always put things down to age, one thing i love about this site is you can tell who your real friends are take care sadly don't drink anymore tell you about it one day all the best your friend Alan xx

  • This must be a shock. I can't imagine how you are feeling, I will not pretend that I do.

    However, I have some wisdom to offer you if you care for it. I think it would be wise to research any other treatments they offer you for this. Look for alternative media (not the first page of google) I have read about some brilliant results when people take control of situations like this.

    Sending you my best wishes.

  • hi there i'm not sure what you trying to say that i've looked up on google just to find a medication for what i've just gone though, i'm shocked that you would imply this, i thought you was a nice person and was hoping you would reply, i wish i hadn't bothered please don't bother replying again

  • I think you have not understood what I'm suggesting. I'm speaking about future treatments you may or may not be offered.

    I'm saying it is wise to get all the information you can.

    Why would I wish you the best if I was trying to be rude.

    As you just said: i'm not sure what you trying to say'

    Please read my post again. I would never want to cause

    harm to anyone. I won't post back. All the best.

  • Hi there I'm sorry its just I've just got out of hospital after having a blocked lower abdomen and I'm not with at the moment. Please except my apologies. I thought because I'm trying to cope with a brain tumour as well to deal with so please forgive me Alan:-)

  • It's in the past. Be well.

  • Hi there may I changed my last comment on you. That your a lovey person just me getting the wrong end of the stick take care Alan xx:-)

  • hi there i've just seen a reply from you but can't find it, i hope you will contact me again, i feel bad about what i said and to what your last post to which i can't find. i'm really sorry for having a go, i shouldn't have, and if there is anyway i can make it up with you, i would love to do that. to what i read why are people having a go at you. your a very beautiful woman and after what i said i wish i could turn the clock back.but they still shouldn't be against you they should be helping you. i do hope you well contact me again, please take care can i send you a bigal hug and a cuddle if it helps you. i would love to be your friend and to get to know you better take care Alan xx

  • Hi Alan How are you doing now? Hope you are feeling better.

  • Hi there I'm not to bad today had a good night sleep but stomach is still sore but keep going until I can say I'm fully OK. How are you today OK I hope take care big hug for you. Alan xx

  • I'm fine thanks Alan. I hope you feel better tomorrow. A couple more good nights sleep and rest should hopefully improve your stomach. Noticed you said you kept guinea pigs - I used to have one when my daughter was little. I love them they are real characters!! Mine used to whistle at me as I passed her cage, demanding cucumber!

  • hi there yes i have four girls and your right they have there own personalty and like yours my two youngest they both whistle when i walk by and then what i call popcorn when they just jump up and down for there cucumber, organic carrots, and little gem lettuce, they are only girls i have my cat jasper is a boy. many thanks each day is an improvement day as i call it. please take care speak to you soon Alan xx

  • Hi Alan, Lin here........Hope you are not too blue with all this soggy, grey weather and not feeling A1.

    My hand is healing well - putting Bio Oil on the scar and my hubby is doing most of the washing and cooking. I had a "flare" of Fibro/Lupus symptoms last week, probably triggered by a virus caught whilst in a crowd on Christmas Day. Am aware of this risk, but am prepared to take it, as I go stir crazy being indoors for too long. Am not sure how you cope with this.

    Do you listen to music? This has often been a sanity preserver for me, and I love to sing along too.

    How are the FAB4 girls? and two cats, Suki and Taz are great company. They have a "mad half hour" after my other half goes to sleep, whizzing all over the place and skidding on the floor ....very funny. Suki is actually calling me to get to bed, as it is almost 2.a.m. She likes to snuggle on my feet.

    So, I had better stop here.

    Hoping that this year is a better one for you.

  • hi Lin no i've not been to good was in hospital with a trapped lower abdomen and my upper abdomen was trapping my bladder to i was in hospital for a few day over the holidays. sorry to hear you have been in the wars hope your scar on your hand heals soon, i'm just having a diabetic attack that's why i'm up my sugar levels have dropped to 4.9 please don't be alarmed it will soon come back up take care speak to you soon your friend Alan xx
