Davina's Diary series 2 , the final stage.
« on: February 04, 2020, 03:07:59 pm »
Well final stage?? maybe as after my GIC visit in March should be on my way to GRS , face torture , voice straining and all that goes with it. Retirement beckons (still 13 months away , 13 months to long) when I can at last be free.
Anyway part 2 of my journey .

Got a ******* cold now, day off as well. Just hope its better by tomorrow, Olbas oil helping keeping the tubes clear. Will get some fresh air in a bit as need to got to chemist and pick up my patches and some more cold meds.
Need to go on this diet seriously , feeling like one of the hippos from Fantasia, last blood test shows cholesterol levels on upper limit (tell me I could have guessed ) E was a bit low maybe from different patches??Must go and make myself "presentable" as still in nighty, frost this morning and foggy so thick coat time.

When I went to pick up my patches the doc hadn't sent order down, they will have my full amount tomorrow and gave me some today. She said ring them a week before to make sure they get ordered. Bugger more faffing about.
Nose wont stop running, have a large pile of tissues to chuck.  Recon will be off work tomorrow, in the time its taken me to type this 2 more tissues on the pile .Well if they don't like it at work tough.
 My E reading from my last blood test was very low but thinking it might be a typo, says 70 int and I think it should be 170 if not 270 by my last test. T is still the same.

Only a group of transgender people could celebrate and congratulate you for being "on my way to GRS , face torture , voice straining and all that goes with it."  We are an odd and wonderful group!

Exciting news and best wishes,

Emma

little bit of rationing going' on the E patches in the UK, we've been hearin'

70 pg / ml is a bit low (still in range on the low side for post a menopausal female according to one chart i've seen).

Rest well

Thanks Cindi , well still <not allowed> today so had to text in sick . Cold remedy powder tastes gross so put a tea spoon of honey in the hot water!!! bit better. Nose is slowing down , so far just a head cold so hoping it doesn't end up on the lungs (prone to chest infections, now that's funny!!) . Brain is addled, but then its never worked correctly anyway. Have some thin sliced beef to use for lunch , cant decide if its a beef mustard and pickle sandwich or cook some pasta /cous cous and make something up??

Hi Davina
Nice new thread place you have.
Dear, you appear predisposed to chest accumulations ;)
But in this case hope you're better soon.

Cheers dear, managed work today just about but managed to leave 1/2 hr early as the meds wore off and started to feel bad again. Plan was to go out tonight and see band but staying in (weathers awful anyway with strong winds and rain)early bed and not going out tomorrow. Have loads of house work to catch up on anyway.

Well it has swede, potatoes , mushrooms, cauliflower, carrots ,aubergine and a green pepper cooked in veg stock , onion ,garlic and ginger with 2 green chillies to start, veg stock to simmer and coconut milk with ground almonds to finish.
Time to chase the vac around and do some dusting, sun has just come out but the wind has picked up with the trees out side my window whipping about. Hope they stay up my cars just there!!!! Weather person described it as a twice a decade storm TBH sheltered here a bit.

Dragged my self to work , coughing up chunks still. Managed till lunch time and had to come home , running a temp and chest tight (not the bra strap either ) so called in pharmacy and have a remedy and picked up the rest of my patches. Olbas oil is helping a lot as well clearing the gunk.
Made a mango kulfi yesterday and that's helping the throat, Joked today saying I had come down with the Cajon virus as cant stop playing a rhythm!!!!

You're right Katie Jade.
Sorry Davina.
I'm not so clever.
Sometimes I think I actually know people here and can joke around.
 Will try to keep it at my own expense.
Get well soon

No I fed you the line, right on my humour dear . Managed a full day at work, lungs clearing but sinus is getting bunged so good job I took the Olbas oil with me to clear out.
 One of my friends in hot rod club had a big fire in his garage , started at 2 am so by the time it was noticed and fire brigade got there the place was gutted. 3 race cars lost engines and his life time of trophy's and memorabilia. Still no one was hurt , 2 cars belong to his sons and the one had only been painted and finish 4 days before.

So last night went to open mic, Texas Tick Fever were headlining and I said OK if I join in with the washboard? If you can keep up they said, halfway through the set I got a thanks over the PA!! They played guitar and banjo , some trad style and some modern played finger picking, finished with Viva Las Vegas!!!ye ha.
 Serious bit now, the site I work at is closing as they have been out bid on the lease and we are moving to the other branch in town, meeting with "management" yesterday. with you bad wrist and your welfare in mind we want you to go to Gloucester branch as they don't have automated testing lane at other branch and there is a vacancy with ATL in Gloucester . Told them before don't want to go there , its 12 more miles a day, they work Sundays and the testing lane is a pain to get onto . already from getting up to returning home is 12 hrs and it will be longer . Asked them to make me redundant , don't think we can do that. That's don't want to pay out redundancy more like. They need an answer by tomorrow, every one I told said quit!!! but that wont pay the bills so don't know what to do GGGGGRRRRRRRR
