Night,
I hope you feel better hun, it's tough not to "over do it" when you need to get it all done, all in one day.
Maybe relax with a smooth merlot and some MM? That ought to help

Hello to whoever I didn't get a chance to talk to today! Pain level is high tonight and I'm tired. I came, threw stars and now I will be all over the place like I am every day, but checking in.


Hi Night.. hope you had a wonderful day. Like Mike said , relax now, and take care of that aching sore body.

All I managed to do today was make my bed, clean up a pile of dishes that I had left from yesterday, and eat leftovers. Was going to bring some buckets and a trolley to my daughter because she is moving, but it was storming here today and super slippery roads, so it’s on the agenda for tomorrow.

Ugh, winter be over !!!

If you’re an inconsiderate ass , what does that make me. I fail at always thinking of others, and sometimes I’m actually just to shy to put myself out there.

The doctors visit was good. Quick..got in early and the testing didn’t take long. She needed some blood work to definitely rule out arthritis, so I went to the lab and got that done as well. In two weeks if I don’t hear from her, I’m not dealing with arthritis yet, but if I get a call, I will be going on some sort of medication.

Thanks for asking , was going to post about it , but it sounded too boring 😆.

How was your day Mike ? Mine was unproductive and rather lazy 😏.

While it sucks being left in limbo for two weeks wondering at least they didn't find anything worse.


And with doctor's,I always go with the great space coaster rule of thumb
"No Gnus is good Gnus"





I had a rather unproductive day today myself, the most industrious thing I've done all day is shower..lol
The weather is dreary, it's cold and damp, a lot of water in the air from melting snow..

Right now I'm just sitting here sipping a beer and watching modern family reruns cuddled up with Layna .

meathead - no, and someone else said the same somewhere. I don't even say taters unless I am referencing something american. I usually say tatties, or spuds, so I'd have used hotbakedtatties but that sounds a little... naughty.



Night! I would hand you some of my rations of pain meds, but I am hoarding them. Since the start of February we need a script for any meds with codeine in it, and I hate feeling like a drug seeking nut to my docs.
At least I found a doctor at the same practice who genuinely believed my pain and wrote a nice script for nice meds and a referral for a gyno to have a laparoscopy. I felt vindicated when after all that, they found stage iii endometriosis! Hooray!

I have on the 13th, finally, an appointment through the hospital to see an orthopaedic surgeon to do something about my foot. I had been waiting 2 years. My foot has arthritis in several joints, bone spurs, resulted from untreated avascular necrosis of the 2nd metatarsal head (Freibergs disease, which is apparently rare/uncommon) 20 years ago this month! It still hurts after all this time, I walk funny, my posture sucks, and almost all the joints through my body hurt to heck with snapping and cracking, grinding and clicking - a dull inner burning like the feeling of abrasions/gravel rash. And I don't drive, I walk. Orthotics made pain worse, physio helped for a little bit. I have had times when I have nearly lost my mind and wanted to cut my foot off, or get a mate to run over my foot with a car so the hospital would have to fix my foot.

The lesson I want to impart on everyone - when someone says their toe hurts really bad for days, weeks and months...and years... don't fob them off with 'You can walk, it's not broken' - if only my family and teachers believed me, and didn't think I was being a whiny teenager looking to get out of PE. Which was sad because I loved running, especially long distance/cross country. I only wanted out of PE in later years because me foot hurt! and the teenagers in my pe classes were bullies and I'd rather sit out and read a book. Or do sports/games with my mates.

Now I have rambled.

I don't know where my brain is going, and what I am doing here - lost my train of thought on a tangent.

Time for a cup of tea!!!

i'm not up with your health stuff-a-ma-jig, but, blood test for arthritis I get, if you are talking rheumatoid arthritis.

You can have oesteoarthritis and that requires imaging.

Do you have psoriasis by chance?

actually can you do a quick breakdown for me whats up? i'm a bit silly at the moment!

Ok... Joe it is. Just thought you may not mind using your username and I certainly didn’t mean to offend you.

Weather is miserable here too. 😕. I feel rather on the depressed side of life lately, and it’s taking a lot to get me motivated about anything.

While I'd be lying to say I am not disappointed you are not an old friend.

I am Very Happy to make a new one!

And I'm sorry I butchered your name spelling before

Sheye, I'm not offended in the least, and Joe is fine

My user name is a joke and a way for me to poke fun at myself with ~meathead
It also helps remind people I don't take myself to seriously, a little lighthearted self depreciation
Goes along way in breaking the ice .

Hi auroraaus ( I may have trouble always getting your name correct)... pleased to see you have joined the Sheddite family.. or maybe you were here before I was, as I am a recent user of the Shed thread. Beautiful avatar by the way !

The doctor I went to see was a rheumatologist, so I guess I’m getting tested for that type.
No.. I don’t have psoriasis.

Thanks for the concern dear.. that’s very sweet of you.

both of you - butchering is FINE!


The best one I've gotten was Aurorasaurus - made me wish I chose that


Sheye- I have popped in here and there over the last year. I think. I can't remember. My brain hurts thinking today


Danke for the compliments!

Well, if the rheumy can't find a cause, there are other conditions which could be investigated by other specialists - but... that's more time, more money, more running around and still not fixing/helping you until the cause is found!

a reply to: auroraaus

We already know the cause.. degenerative disc disorder. One of my lower discs is in bad shape, and the Physiotherapist at the Spinal Pathway Clinic here told me I wasn’t a good candidate for surgery. He gave me a few exercises to do, and that was that.

My family doctor thought it may be aggravated by arthritis, hence the referral to the rheumatologist. I do have osteoporosis, which runs in the family, and my mother has arthritus.

* sighs* I suddenly feel old and tired 😆.. I think I’m off to bed.

G’night gang (((Hugs)))

Good morning!

Feeling good. Drinking coffee and listening to post grunge. The rib (muscle?) pain is only on the left side now and paracetamol is enough to make it vanish almost completely. Yesterday was a good day, spent time with my friends and their cats and i drank some beer. Enough beer to reboot my brains and shutdown the unnecessary processes that were going on there. But not too much, i can remember everything and not one bit in a hangover now.

No plans for today. I don't need plans now, life will go on anyway, i will travel to the future one second at a time and ride on this planet, travelling around the sun.

How'd the angry birds go mate ?

Was just thinking how cool it would be to supply the little tackers with miltary grade quad rubber equipped sli gshots ... wrist brace - standard.

Tic tacs in stead of bb's of course ...

Wait !

When I was a kid...we used bb's and fireworks against each other ... with malice ! Lol !

And survived !

Kinda glad that today's gen. Are tech tards.

The Easter Chick Pinatas worked a treat!
Everyone had a great time and the Pinatas put up just enough of a fight to make it a worthwhile "game"!

I'm really tired but am gigging tonight, so will just have to get on with it!

Slingshots & TicTacs!

We used to have Slingshots and home-made bow & arrows or even crossbows!!
And SURVIVED too!

Poor healthcare continues...

Not the best thread I've put together as I'm feeling like a zombie today but it was needed to show the world or at least the Shed a bit more into what I am dealing with.

Hugs and love to everyone.
