Welcome to the Arena of the Unwell

It's my monthly "feeling crap" time again. Actually on antibiotics this time for a chest infection so I can't be accused of blowing things out of proportion! It's amazing how you can be diagnosed with M.E. and yet people still think you're a hypochondriac!

And if it wasn't bad enough that I'm constantly coughing and blowing my nose, I have this bizarre red, blistered area on my left nostril which looks rather odd. I'm not sure what's caused it but it only came up on Friday. I did have a spot just inside my nostril on Thursday which went with no problems but the swelling/blisters/eczema-like area is on the outside only. Very weird!
Lovely view isn't it! lol

Aston's been on antibiotics too - he's had a throat infection which we thought was croup. Luckily it wasn't and he seems to be on the mend although he's still coughing now and again and he seems to tire more easily. Still manages to be a total pain in the bum though! The first couple of days he was bad, he had spontaneous nosebleeds as well - great fun to cope with at 3am when your child is coughing and spluttering anyway without their nasal passage filling with blood! Thankfully he's now got an appointment at the ENT clinic in Maidstone for May so we may get some insight into why he gets them and whether they can do anything about it.

I'm still working on the Spiderman Afghan for Christopher's (my bro) birthday. Wouldn't believe he's going to be 33 would you!

I've also got the usual 5 or 6 other projects on the go! I want to get a few things finished before I go to America in June. Yes, I finally managed to get the tickets after Sefton coughed up £850 to pay for our flights - he paid me that to get the divorce application signed! Sucker!!! Now I just have to save the spending money. Going to have to seriously tighten my belt! Hopefully I'll get some money for my birthday and I'll have to put a fair few pennies away each month too. Going to need a nice stash cuz we're going to be there for 3 weeks AND take in Disneyland as well! I can't wait - it's going to be a lot of fun!

Well, it's back to the afghan for me... and a programme about Cleopatra before the next installment of Heroes! Monday nights are improving! ;-)

sorry you feel rotten!
my MIL gave me an article about treating ME with light, and it's very odd cos I felt great after my jaunt to Madrid last year,but the effect didn't last. I am going to try and get as much sunshine as poss though.
keep saving!

About Me

My photo
I'm a stay at home mum (yes it IS a non-profit industry - I've never had a penny for doing it and I don't know any mums who have!) to Aston who's 2 years old. I have 2 pet rabbits - Malcolm and Jimmy. I'm seperated from my husband and now live back in my hometown of Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey, Kent UK. I have also lived in London and West Sussex so I've knocked about the South East of England a bit! I'm a pagan and am inspired by natural things and love anything that's not been tampered with too much. I love watching rugby and football and my fave teams are Bath Rugby (cuz Matt Stevens plays for them! lol) and Fulham FC.
