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 ...

Full on badness today, and unfortunately I had a meeting which we'd had real problems organising so I went anyway. Probably a mistake. ...  read more ...

For the first time in my life I appear to be the member of a political party ... well, sort of: I've signed up as a member of the National Health Action Party. Lead by two doctors, one of which is Dr Richard Taylor who was independent MP for Wyre Forest for two parliaments between 2001 and 2010.  read more ...

One of the joys of being on anti-seizure meds is that I can't drink a lot. Officially I'm not meant to drink at all but like many people with epilepsy I still drink a bit.

... and already it's not going well. In my defence I've not been well today.

So, I've been a little distracted for the last ten days of so by the aftermath of the dog incident. The current state of the nation is that Jack and I are off to the vet today ...  read more ...

I've just embarked on taking a new drug in an attempt to get my migraines under some sort of control (more about that here) and the notes that came with it say I may notice a "change in your mood or experience feelings of depression".  read more ...

So, while bored waiting for the man flu to go away I've been reading the instructions on these Strepsils Extra. They claim that the dose is one "every three hours as required" but goes on to say "Do not take more than 12 lozenges in any 24 hour period". Huh?  read more ...

29/01/11

I've been struck down by some sort of virus today. I felt vaguely sub-par yesterday but I was then woken up in the wee small hours today with a sore throat (thank goodness I still had some Strepsils left from last time)...  read more ...
