Hi Afternoon Folks,


I'm alright now and since, mental health heard voices wise, after having brought forward my dose, to 1pm, and I am finer again.

I have been very very drained and tired, from travel and 1 night away. My energies and vitality have since returned to their more normal selves.


My parents were out, this afternoon, and I had to monitor t he phone, and also do my needle working, dad was expecting an important call, or urgent call. Never arrived in.


I will ease into needle working and musicals/music combined, this late afternoon, until and with breaks here and there f rom needle working, until almost, dinner time this evening.


I couldn't increase dose up to 30ml, I am having side affects problems on 25ml, so 30ml would just be, a bit too much of a dose.


I am hoping to get traditional low impact aerobics done, tomorrow.


I hope all are well, and managing the best that we can, along or for mental health conditons, I'll be back with an update at 8pm or so.


During my breaks, i will keep an eye to check on any New Posts that I might find interesting to then keep an eye on, from needle working.


Have a good late afternoon/evening all,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,


Now that I have happily dropped from just under 10st, towards 9 and a half stone, I still do intend on;

cutting back and down on sandwiches, normal bread sandwiches, of organic no added sugar peanut butter, less packs of choclate pieces, down from 2 to 1 pack a day, (feels a bit like smoking that, doesn't it, only I don't smoke, thankfully and fortunately), cutting back and down apart from when in at my care and community location to have there, on jacket/baked potatos.


To cut right back and down on fizzy drinks, keeping to blackcurrant and lemonade mixed, maybe just one or two glasses of a day, and have cola, drinks, down from 2 to 1 bottle whilst out for volunteering.


Also, to have once a day of fruit juice, preferably pineapple, milder than orange juice.


I still do intend on working out regularly to my low impact salsacise dvd workouts, and given time due to holiday in the way, still to all being well, workout to low impact salacise workouits, thereafter I have just returned from holiday, back to home.

Further, I plan to go to zumba gold, on Wednesdays, and Saturday mornings, unless regarding Wednesdays, I have a volunteering task which I need to adhere to.


Sorry, I was just aware of a helicopter, and they were distracting my typing. the post up.


In terms of plant based, I have echincea tea to - hot tea to drink, mixed with a fruit flavour tea. On occasions, not all the time.



Now I am feeling very concerned regarding Poppy2014, I think is the rest of the username, I haven't noted another journal of excercise update and I just hope, that they are not in very excruiating pain.


Have a good evening all,


Natalie.

HI Early morning folks,


I'm alright, now I go to extremes me, I either sleep very very well, or, I'm up incredibly earlier from about 4am. Which is good, because enabling me to get a workout done, and that will be the case today.


I need to train to be up earlier anyway, for in time on a day for volunteering purposes, and travel.


All being well, Saturday, and my ankle leg is much better, I'll go to zumba gold. This is a earlier in the morning class for about 9.30am.


My diet management strangely is fine. At the moment.


Have a good morning all,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Afternoon Folks,

I couldn't logg on any earlier today, busily out, and then return, also I had a terrible painful headache, a combination of things, psorasis, sinuses, plus a old boil, and tension. Took a dose of Sudafed, which I am now feeling happier by the way, for the sinuses pains, and I am much much better.


My father is now very much better, following on from hic ups. He took separately as prescribed, and the method of taking 2 tablets spaced out separately, and they worked, like a treat! He's very much more recovered now. I think, he might have lost some weight, i'm slightly uncertain about that, what with hic upping all the time.


i am having a much better afternoon, than yesterday, oh yes, that was the other point, I had slept very very well overnighter, woke up from a deep sleep, up only the once briefly, at 7am, woking up again, so I am feeling very much brighter, and more fresher.


Couldn't go to zumba this morning, I had a terrible painful leg. I'll do my chair fitness at some point, on today.


My diet management is fine. Going very well indeed.


Have a good afternoon, I'll return to debrief, at about 8pm.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Evening Folks,


I have had somewhat of a slow start to my day. I had slept very very well, overnighter, and then I recieved indirectly by accident a bit of a shock, that my father is to gradually be retiring, completely, from his accountancy work. In the main, he'll be a lot less stressed, and less strained.

Therefore, maybe this evening, or I might just wait until tomorrow, to get a either a normal hard workout done, or workout in chair fitness mode.


Strangely, my dieting side of things is fine.

Hopefully, I shall get a normal workout done.


Have a good evening all,


Best Regards all, as always I'll return to debrief you all, about 10.15/10.30pm, this evening.


Natalie.

HI Evening Folks,


I'm very well mental health wise, no problems to report at this time.


I have been suffering acutely it just recently came u p, with a leg infection, I think, although I wouldn't like to swear by, it's now feeling so much better. Still a bit niggly, not as bad. Not as painful as it once was.


Tomorrow, morning, I am planning, if my plans ever do work, complilmentary laughing, I do plan to get a morning workout done, to my fitness dvds.


My diet management is going well, I have dropped weight off from just a bit under 10st, to 9 and 3 quarters stone. I am aiming comfortably for 9 and a half stone.


Very much more relaxed in time for holiday, and very much enjoying of the thouight to look forward to the holiday, i just half hope it won't be weather wise at sea, a bit too choppy unlike previously. Particularly, through the Bay of Biscay, even so, shouild be relatively calmer. One should like to think. Cruising - the European Meditterenean.


I'll return to debrief you all, about 10.30pm.


If not, then tomorrow.


Have a good evening all,


Best Regards All.


Natalie.

Hi Folks, once again earlier than planned,


I have been suffering with the most terrible headache - painful, not stress. Although there might be some tension along the way, due to something I am expecting to happen in the short term in due course, and I had to take a dose of half a dose of painkiller, to relieve the bulk of the symptons.

At the moment, I can't comment whether if I'll be in a "fit state" for working out to my low impact salsacise, dvd segment.


Hopefully, I'll get a workout done tomorrow, in at home, Otherwise, on Thursday.


For the time being this afternoon, I'll all being well will take it more careful, and just music listening, and knitting.


Have a good afternoon, all, I'll do a debrief, round about 6 or 8pm.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks, an update;


I have recovered well from the headache, I just took one half of a painkiller dose, I'm running low on the painkiller stock at the moment, and I am much better.


So much so, I had forgotten all about my med for mental health purposes, and I took that dose, half hour ago.

That's the problem when well on 25ml normally(without holidays in the way) having suffered a bad painful headache, me anyway, I easily always forget about the dose on a day.


i'll ease hopefully this afternooon, into music/musicals listening, and knitting.



I'll return later, either at 6pm or 8pm, to debrief,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


I'm alright, I have been slightly through dry skin condiitons irritible, apart from that, I'm very well, they become worse for me as I become more with it, for the afternoon and evening. I have taken something my usual supplemtn, just one spoon though, to help me settle down and feel more calmer.


I was feeling to attend zumba gold, this Saturday, the weather might not be very dry, so I am doubtful, if I'll actually will get there. The following weekend, should be ok.


I am hoping that over the late week, or weekend, I'll do another session of low impact salsacise workout.


Overall, I'm very well mental health wise, just the ah, irritiblity problem, at the moment.


Have a good day and evening all, I'll return to debrief, at about 8pm,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I think, finally today, I am getting much better following on from a painful headache, and nasal passages a big problem for me today. I won't do my chair fitness this evening as my originally intended plan, I am looking for to do this, on over the weekend, meaning my low impact salsacise workout.


I am fine and very well mental health wise major major ailments are down, and apart from slight irritiblity earlier on this afternoon. I am much much better now, irritiblity wise.


I have as always, been music/musical listening, this afternoon, for a bit, I'll resume for a longer session, and knitting. I can't feel for needleworking, at the present time.


Have a good afternoon all, oh by the way, I received an email, in terms of my newer username, now, that was during the time I had a very big headache, and we all had a very big headache, in which, some members, me included could not logg on, and get posting, so meaning couldn't just access this site, and had to rely on upon sources of emailing through to the behind the scenes team, once, again, thanks very much for all of the hard work and help, in getting me via my Natalie username back on track, with accessing the forum and via a different password which, happily content, I happily have become used to, and is part of my memory filing banking system, along with my other general memory bank files, to do with volunteering offline, at any point of time, I have become very well acquainted with the password new one, so much so, I haven't needed to refer to a note, to remind me what it was, ok, so my fingers might go the wrong way, overall, I have happily gotten used to the password now.


i've just realised, World Mental health was yesterday - I'm getting my dates, muddled up.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


My apologies, for being late with an update, to debrief, I'd been busier elsewhere on MHF, and also I wanted to catch up what with my head health, earlier on today, with my music and musicals listening and knitting.


I am very much better this evening, no sinsues to think of, and certainly no more irritiblities, since i took a dose of my supplement, for that purpose, and also, since the rain, has been absolutely pouring down, this evening, my irritible self on that front, has greatly improved on a positive note.


I am intending on a) being in based in at home tomorrow, and also, I'll get my low impact salsacise workout done, while parents will be out, father has his blood test appointment, and they'll combine with shopping in the area, and supermarket shopping as well.


Major major main ailments, of szchiophrenia are very well behaving I'm pleased to report, no anxieties, no hearing voices, I did have a slight turn of a heard voice, earlier evening, realised following on from my brother speaking in person obvisouly, I'll be very aware, together with parents, and he was still at it, by the turn, when I was going upstairs. Anyway, I have been finer, since, 6.30/6.45pm, listening to music, and knitting.


No further hearing delusions, haven't occurred, and certainly no paranoia. All is well, except for irritiblity self.


My boils h ave greatly improved, I am much much better. No further sinuses, this evening, I am well.


On Saturday all being well, I shall be busily out shopping for during the day, I might not be logging on properly until the very late afternoon, round about 4pm. roughly.



So all is well, at my screen end, regarding myself, I hope all on here are just about well as can be expected.

I went past a shop locally today, and they have got a Halloween Sale, I thought no, not me, I'm not into that kind of thing, anyway, that's for children more.


I'll h opefully will get another debriefing done, about 10.15/10.30pm, this evening.



Have a good evening all,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Afternoon Folks,


Owing to the fact I had been having a series of acute headaches, and I don't know whether lurking from boils reoccurring on head, or my sinuses, I have booked myself in, to the GP surgery, and I think they confirmed to me on Thursday morning next week.


i have ongoing health issues, physically, and when these do flare up acute, althouigh usually I can and do manage, in this instance, these are very acute this week and today, so I knew I needed when feeling easier, to book an appointment, and to then attend, obvisouly, to find out the root cause, if suspected from the GP service, and or if antiboitics, might have to be drawn up. As i say, I don't know if these are from boils, or sinsues at the moment, I wish to debrief, the Surgery in person, GP wise, to let them know, and for them to decide on the appropriate action.



Therefore, where I was looking forward to working out during lunchtime session whilst parents were out today, I'm afraid, I've had to quick safely abort that idea, on hold, for another time, in the short term.


I hope all are well,


as can be,


Best Regards All,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I still have lurking an amount of headache, it doesn't request a painkiller, though it's manageable.


I am definitely keeping the GP appointment on Thursday, and I do also have a dental check up booked, though he;s away now, or at some point, and shan't be available, for when I have my check up on Monday 19th November.

I am due to soon to be registering and making an eye appointment with a brand new branch of optical doctors, in my borough, I haven' t been happy at a previous one, for both admin and people reasons, staffing I mean, fortunately, I haven't been aware of this staff member for a while in my memory bank, even so, I'll prefer a switch and go to where mother goes, now.


I have been listening to music, and knitting during the afternoon...

Yes, so I need to keep the GP appointment, to maybe eventually find out the hopeful informative root cause of the pains in the head.


No workout today, as I haven't been head wise well. Mental health wise, absolutely fine.


i was irritible earlier today, have greatly improved since day wore on.


Have a good afternoon, all,


Best Regards All.


Natalie.

HI Morning Folks,

I can happily r eport from having had a weight check done, with mother assisting, I have gone down, from a notch under 10 st, to 9 and a half stone.


Owing to the in home senario yesterday, and all being well, I'm going to get a baked/jacket potato, for my lunch. And then, over the weekend, sub.sandwiches style.


I am hoping to get a proper low impact salsacise workout done, today, if not, then tomorrow.


My boils problems/conditions, are now very much better, healing, completely clear of infections. These were on my back.


Have a good and better day all, than considering how things weren't for me, yesterday late afternoon, hopefully a better day for me for all of us, via at home, brother away to his part time property now, for the weekend,


Best Regards All,


Natalie.
