Hi Afternoon Folks,

I'm unwell. For the week, for the best par t of during the week, I have had very acute, sinsues, which I realise I think were the causes now, (I'll keep the appointment to debrief the GP regarding this he might as well be updated) and eventually just so happens today, all in one go and all day, I have been having nasal loosening up conditions, which have been driving me mad.

I have since bought hold of congestion nasal spray, which ENT reccommended to me many moons ago, this is another type new type in the range, and already, can't complain, it's working wonders for me.


i'll repeat the dose again, during the evening.


Mental health wise, I'm absolutely - well, no problems there. I'm being controlled, through medication at 25ml.
And for the purpses, of chronic anxiety, if at all prior to a meal time, mum still doesn't have confidence in removing meals from oven, brother and my dad help out still, regularly, and also before going out to volunteering, or shopping.


I might do another chair fitness later during the earlier evening.


Best Regards All.

Hi Afternoon, Folks,


I'm much better. After using the first sprays, of 1 dose, to help the nasal passeges, I am finer.

I'll do a repeat dose, later on during the evening.


I have a further acute boil, brewed up, and being how that is positioned, and located, is most awkward, and irritiating, I can't disclose where about me.


I might not be able to get a workout done, tomorrow, depending on this boil situation.


I am happier overall, that I have dropped weight down to 9 and a half stone.


I'll take another dose of anti bacteria/anti virus solution, for the boil, and also dab on, antibiotic cream, during the early evening. This is done for 3 t imes a day.


I hope everyone else, is doing well, much better than me, physical health and general health wise.


Take care all,


Natalie.

Hi Evening folks,

Much belated debriefing, than usual, then, I haven't been at present physically well.


My nasal passeges are now finer, I am much much better. If I have another onset, of nasal passeges again, I know that I have the nasal spray now, to hand not literally to hand, to use.


I think, allowing time, the boil will if not soon, shall eventually be, on the mend.


I am hoping that on Monday, I'll get another low impact salacise workout done, depending on the irritible boil situation.


Have a good evening all, offline, I'll be up until about 11pm, then resuming back online, with MHF, tomorrow, at some point in the morning, once I can function, and be with it for the morning late morning.


Best Regards All,

Natalie.

Hi Folks,


Update;


My boil has become much better, that had opened up this evening, and is now on the mend.


Sinuses wise, pains wise in the head, I have greatly improved, though I had a problem today, all day, of too much runner loosening up congestion, once bought and used my usual nasal spray, earlier on in the afternoon, well, worked like a treat, I'm very much better.


I have been listening to musicals, this evening and knitting, though I'll switch to contempary, easy listening music, modern music this is.


Best Regards All.

Hi Afternoon, Folks,

I am much much better following on from a ready to open boil, last night, and that has now been healing up, I am much much better, much happier in that respect.


Also, I felt, I am feeling happier now that I managed to lose weight, i walked all the way from my home, to main supermarket first stop, in my home area. On another Sunday, where there's not so many buses, depedning on my weight levels, I'll do that again. I bused, back thouigh.


I am intending after volunteering on Tuesday, on Wednesday morning, getting to zumba gold group near me, i think because of my leg agony on those occasions, I couldn't really enjoy doing the toning work, in a bending the legs motion down and up, and with the arms out to the front, hands, clasped. I was very painful leg wise then, so this time, round, I should be able to manage it.


I'll t hen go to the dance zumba gold class, fast dancing workout session, and unless the pace has been changed, I don't know, I haven't been in a long time, I'll go all being well on Saturday morning.


It all hinges on the weather senarios. And how tired/much sleeping I have been, from the day before.


In the meantime, in at home, I'll do my low impact salsacise workout or chair fitness sessions.


My dieting management is going well. I have been feeling low weather this morning, I happened to have had in my stock, a pack of chocklate pices, so I had to have from that, to compensate, for the bad weather.


Have a good day all,


Best regards all.

Hi Folks,


ON both counts, in terms of the sinuses, and also the boil, mended, I am now very much better - I'm pleased to say, I was feeling itchy in an area on my back earlier, put softening cream on, and that's alright now.

Mental health wise, now that the holiday is now very much behind me, I am very well mental health wise, no problems to report up.


i am just concerned of my medication at the moment, however i did re order more yesterday, I am on my final 5th bottle now of Abilify, and it was forcast that it would be ready or in on Tuesday, as mum as asssurre me, I can always take, from their dispensing error, a 15ml dispersible tablet, and 10 ml liquid. i explained oriignally that when I would be in the area on Thursday, I'd collect th en, forgetting just how quick over 6 days, ish 25ml goes. I wouldn't like to miss out on a days' dose either.


Anyway, I am sure things will be alright in the meantime, I panick too much in that respect.


I am looking forward to my volunteering out from 8.30am, to allow travel time on Tuesday, and shan't be back to home, until about 2.15/2.30pm, or there abouts.


Anyway, physical health wise, I am very much better, I am hoping to in home workout either on Monday or Tuesday. Way before volunteering, off course. i'm never one for late arrival me, in fact, I don't like late arrivals anyway.


Have a good day all,


Best regards all.

Hi Folks,

Ever since Tuesday last week, my head just hasn't felt right pains wise, headaches, I'll be relieved to get to the surgery on Thursday, to debrief the GP regarding these headaches, and I'll take it from there.


I'm not working out at the moment, owing to the headaches.


My diet management is going well.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I'm unwell still, with another bout of further painful headaches.

I'll be very relieved for Thursday morning, visiting the GP surgery, for my appointment, and to debrief, him in terms of the headaches.


I have just used my de-congestion nasal spray, so I'm feeling easier now, the pains flared up from 1.30pm.


I might have to result into a painkiller situation, I have been self treating, and using the decongesting medicine as well, without the aid of a painkiller.


Best Regards All, I'll come back later, when hopefully I'll be much much better.


Natalie.

Hi Afternoon Folks,



I still am unwell, with painful headaches, I will be reporting to the GP about these tomorrow morning, and then I'll take from there, what the GP might say, or what sort of action for me to carry out.

I'm fine mental health wise.


Just when I am beginning to feel with it for the afternoons, and the headaches come pounding painfully on me.


I have in fact, taken a painkiller, to help for the pains.


Have been listening to music here and there and knitting, I have been out on errands, twice today, that's it, I'm in now for the afternoon and evening time.


Best Regards All.

Hi Folks,

Well as predicted, I had to result into taking a painkiller, for the headaches.


I'll do a debrief here, regarding the GP appointment, probably not until 8pm in the evening.


Best Regards All.

HI Folks,

Temporarily, as there will be no knowing how I'll be tomorrow, during the course of the afternoon, I am much much better headaches wise.


Will try to settle down this evening, to music and knitting, which I found a bit difficult, what with the amount of calls into our home, the phone has been rining crazy all afternoon, since a point of time, I am thinking of taking my phone jack out, lead, that way, I can't be disturbed, I have a close cousin, who does this at all times, he only puts in, when there's a call for him. Also, very very dull dark cloud built up weather, wise, and I thought, it was going to pour down, by 5pm, fortunately hadn't, yet.

Anyway, will this evening settle very much down, into music listening mode, and knitting.

And mentally preparing for my day's in the morning travel, from after the GP appointment, to my interview for volunteering.

In all other physical and general health, I'm well, and mental health wise, I'm very well.


Best Regards All.

Hi Folks,


I'll update much earlier than forcast;

Without realising, that from at some point, I must have gone into a horrible bout of catarrh deafness for the most part of the week, I just happened to and whilst listening to music, and knitting, have a big yawn come over me, and a bit before whilst listening to music still, have everything "booming louder". I'm relieved, that the catarrh deafness has now gone, and I am back to normal hearing, now I wonder, whether, and I can't often tell ,me, if I could have had also a cold, a bit of, and that couldn't have helped either.


All will be well, hopefully, on wood, for in my interview, I'll hear the interviewer as normal, without the catarrh acute deafness in the way, the last I'd have to be doing, is to ask one to repeat what was said.


Anyway, certainly for this evening onwards, I'm normal hearing again. My music gave me a sudden acute fright, when i had everything "booming much louder".


Mental health wise, I'm very well.


See you all on MHF, tomorrow, early evening i'll do a pre catch up, before logging on, and I'll log on and post properly, from 8pm onwards, tomorrow night.


Have a good evening all,


Best Regards All.


Natalie.

HI Afternoon Folks,


I'd been to the GP this morning, I'd been delayed there, before travelling over to my 2nd and final meeting of the day, and the result or outcome of the appointment is, I have or have had tension headaches.

I'm alright at the moment thank goodness no headaches about.


Will ease this late afternoon, into music listening and knitting.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


Now that I am much much better headaches, wise, at the moment, I am planning on getting to zumba gold group on Saturday morning.


In the meantime, I shall be working out in the traditional low impact aerobics style, to help prepare much better for mental and physically for volunteering desk work. I might even do a few chair fitness sessions, if I can't or don't feel for a full blown normal workout.


Best Regards All.
