Yesterday I had four simple partial seizures. The first in bed, the second in the kitchen while having breakfast, and the third and fourth at about 11:45 and 19:45, both in my study. This is the first time I've had any since the three on 12th August 2008.  read more ...

I've not been well. Nothing new there you're thinking. And that's true enough which is why I seldom bother writing about it here these days but I've had a bit of a time of it over the last couple of weeks.  read more ...

You'll have to excuse me if I'm brief as the fall out from Wednesday's extraction is still leaving me somewhat sub-par. Yesterday after another poor night's sleep I was crap most of the day with a headache and a half and ended up back in bed mid-afternoon to try to sleep it off.  read more ...

Yesterday I'd been suffering from what I initially put down to being a migraine as the pain seemed to be on one side of my head but eventually I realised was toothache. Some probing and it was pretty clear it was the tooth I'd had capped off, rather than extracted as was the original plan, some months before.  read more ...

So today was meant to be a day of collections and deliveries: my new phone was due to be collected "some time between noon and 5pm" by UPS so it can be repaired and I was also due to take delivery ...  read more ...
