2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

smiley - yawn
I still feel majorly wonky following the hyponatrimia, wekk long hospitalisation. Not sure why, could still be the after-affect of such high-dose steroids for a week, or just an effect of the hyponatremia itself smiley - alienfrown

Just constant dizzyness, sense of the room spinning, and feeling of falling, plus so tired, fatigued, and brain-fatigue/washed out thinking smiley - headhurts and sore, all over (think the soreness is definately a high dose steroid side effect; they're good anti-inflamatorys, so now, down to a more senisble dose, my body seems to be in a lot more inflamation, and hence constant pain).

Went to hospital this morning, early morning blood draw, for testosterone, sodium/electrolights, and had to give a urine sample too smiley - zensmiley - nursesmiley - vampire

Came home via the halal butchers, and green grocers.... got mushrooms, asparagus, more diced lamb, and some chicken breasts smiley - zen plus tomatos, potato, and various fruit smiley - zensmiley - 2cents

Walked past the house, so threw the shopping inside, then went to pharmacy...

Pharmacist was touting for trade, so I duely had my flu shot whilst there, and picked up the prescriptions I'd re-ordered...

only, on getting home, found they're not the drugs I ordered.... just three bottles of levothyroxin liquid, no prednisolone, and no eyedrops smiley - alienfrown - I've a feeling the GP, seeing my discharge letter, and noticing the increased new levothyroxin dose, has just thrown out an extra script for the liquid levo... - I'm assuming if we return to the pharmacy Monday I'll find my steroids and more levothyroxin.... smiley - wow - back to situeation of nearly a grand's worth of liquid levo in the fridge, next the many hundreds of quids worth of growth hormone miniquick pens smiley - laugh

Right, to cook lunch next I think..... - lentle dhal for lunch, with the lamb, and then a chicken asparagus and mushroom risotto tonight I think smiley - zensmiley - chef

TBH, I think cooking is about the only thing I both still enjoy doing, am good at, and have the concentration to do, on a regular basis smiley - erm

Well get this all straightened out soon. I wanna see you at having a good time, with no dizziness, disorientation, or brain fog at next year's 20th anniversary meet-up.

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

To be honest, the dizziness, confusion, brain fog, has been pretty constant, since about January-March 2015... as much as anything, it seems to be just side effects of the drugs that make me feel so ill every day when I take them.... but without which I die, apparently smiley - shrug

Its just a bit like feeling majorily hungover, drunk, and on a downer from illegal drugs, all the time smiley - wah - without any of the fun that might otterwise imply smiley - laugh - I think its just called having an incurable chronic c ondition... the constant pain doesn't bother me, TBH, I just ignore that, as I don't do pain medication smiley - grr

As time has gone by, throughout treatment, thus far, the more medications they add tomake me feel better, make me feel worse, about the only single medication that singularly just* helps, with no negative effects, is the one self-medication, I take, magnesium smiley - huh just ordinary over the counter magnesium suppliimentation plus occasional mag spray, and fairly regular magnesium bath salts smiley - zen

I feel fine first thing in the morning, before I take the medication that I'll die without, then as soon as I take it, I get all the symptoms I'm ment to get when I don't take it smiley - huhsmiley - headhurts yes, topsy turvey to say th eleast smiley - snork

feel really dizzy this morning... even after 2.8 G sodium (thankyou bacon rashers), with toast and butter smiley - drool and the poisenious glucorcorticoid medication (prednisolone), smiley - erm I've had two cups of coffee, and a cup of tea, smiley - tea which, is really about as much liquid as I'm ment to drink all day.

However.

we're off to go see the local ukelally group, in a pub, this afternoon smiley - musicalnote so chance is I'll get at least two more pints of liquid smiley - alesmiley - dohsmiley - shrug

I feel too ill if I restrict my liquid intake as they want me to, asides anything else, not to mention too much, but it is actually rather nice to occasionally be able to go to the toilet smiley - blushsmiley - yikessmiley - shrugsmiley - zen

This ukelally thing could go one of two ways..... they might be masterful players of the instruments... or... truly terrible.... if the latter I predict two pints might just not be sufficient smiley - laughsmiley - alesmiley - stout

to insanity and beyond smiley - zensmiley - vampire

It was both terrible, and marvellous... the marvelousness outweighed the awefulness of the ukelally experience smiley - zensmiley - discosmiley - musicalnote I might have to finally cave in and get myself a uke smiley - musicalnotesmiley - evilgrin yeh, I can be that* evil smiley - alienfrown I also survived the several pints of beer, required to listen to the ukelally musicalness, in the pub... really nice afternoon indeed smiley - zensmiley - ale I combatted the liquid intake and sodium depletion by eating a stack worth of salt in dinner which was a birianni, after the afternoon in the pub, and after getting home and showering smiley - zensmiley - diva - plus also, basically drinking no tea all afternoon smiley - wahsmiley - tea think I'm starting to get dizziness now, from the lack of water in my system... I'm not used to being this dehydrated smiley - wahsmiley - teasmiley - teasmiley - droolsmiley - envy

It wasn't long ago I finally learned to properly pronounce the word 'ukulele'... OO koo LAY lay. Since it's a Hawaiian word, that does make sense.

Nope, it's made of wood and quite small. It looks nothing like a normal flute.

In otter news, spent the day cooking; pita bread, peri peri (however its spelt), chicken breast slices smiley - drool hummus, and now cooking up a massive pot of a sort of Turkish, somewhat spicey, lamb stew/casserole/curry/thing tons of mushrooms, potato, red pepper, chilis, ginger, cinnamon, some otter spices, onions, garlic, and... some otter stuff too I think smiley - erm must go check it actually smiley - run
