It's been one of those weeks. It started with us noticing that the central heating pump was running even when both hot water and central heating were off. So I phoned our tame plumber ... who was in Germany. But luckily he was about to fly home so he promised he'd pop around.  read more ...

Today I went off to Inverness, which was a tale in itself, to see the epilepsy nurse, having been referred by Dr Smith. And the news is not good. The symptoms I had on Thursday, 2/11 and Wednesday 8/11 were of partial or "focal" seizures, in particular temporal lobe seizures.  read more ...

Firefox Quantum Release 57 of Firefox brings us what is essentially a whole new browser, faster and leaner; a quantum leap as it were, which I suppose is why they're calling in Firefox Quantum.  read more ...

So my new friend Dr Smith phoned me today (Nairn doctors seem to be very in to phone consultations, much more so than Milton, but that's fine with me). She tells me that, unsurprisingly, all the blood tests came back normal. But, as I said to her, it's reassuring all the same.  read more ...

After the fun and games of last Thursday and, especially, yesterday we went to the doctors' surgery this morning. Like Milton before them Nairn operate a triaging system so they can get people they want to see urgently in sooner than the routine appointments system.  read more ...

Today's fun and games has been four more episodes of what I now strongly suspect is seizure aura. As I said in last Thursday's post this is something I've had before and I think, although I'm not sure because if I do have a seizure it screws my memory of events immediately before it, that sometimes it's been before a full on seizure. These were similar to the ones last Thursday but with slightly less dizziness but with the added ingredient of (fake) strong smell.  read more ...

Clutching at straws but today I started on 400mg of vitamin B2 (2 x 100mg morning and evening). This is way higher than the RDA which is 1.3mg per day but some people find it effective for migraine prophylaxis and the only common side effect is that your urine turns very yellow as you dump the excess rapidly (it's water soluble).

Today's fun and games has been three episodes of what I suspect is seizure aura. This is something I've had before and I think, although I'm not sure because if I do have a seizure it screws my memory of events immediately before it, that sometimes it's been before a full on seizure.  read more ...

Anyone who knows me well knows that I drink a lot of tea, probably half a gallon or more a day, plus I drink Pepsi Max as my soft drink of choice. ...  read more ...

I recently discovered Cairt, Newsletter of the Scottish Maps Forum, and I've subscribed but they only come out every six months so I'm currently working by way through the back issues while waiting for the next one and this caught my eye.  read more ...
