It's okay if there's nothing, lol... feel free just to rant
One of my medications has been unavailable for a couple of days. So I haven’t taken it since (I have no idea.....what day is it today???) I’ve missed 3 days, and I feel like death. It’s now available at the pharmacy and hubby will collect it on his way home.
He spoke to the pharmacist, who knows us well. He said that if we sort out what we need and he will order a month in advance for us. I’ve got medications that I can’t be without. If my epilepsy meds were to run out and not be available I’d have to be admitted to hospital.
As for this unavailable one, it’s entirely my fault. I didn’t realise my stock was low, and when we went to get it they didn’t have it and couldn’t get it.
Oh, and to top it off, I spent some time in hospital over the last few days. My kidneys aren’t functioning as they should, there’s also some doubt to my liver functioning, and my white blood cell count is pretty much zero. We’ve known this for a while, but at last blood test it’s gotten worse. I’ll keep having regular blood tests and I have no idea no idea where we will otherwise go from here.
It sounds as if you are having a pretty tough time at the moment. I hope things work out for you soon.
That's all so very concerning for you, Rose. I hope they can get on top of your medical issues!
Rose P I hope things get better for you. Nothing worse than not feeling 100%. Your health issues are serious, not good at all. With all the drama going on in the world it is the last thing you need. I am thinking of you and praying your health gets back on track. xxx
Hope you're feeling better soon. I have to take medication daily for an auto immune disease, a box lasts me a month. I got my last box a few weeks ago and I'm thinking about going to the chemist to see if I can get another box earlier as this medication is made in Italy I'm worried I might not be able to get it. I don't want a flare up of Ulcerative Colitis when there's a toilet paper shortage! Look after yourself..
The hospital epilepsy nurse phoned me the other day and said she does'nt want me to come in for my next checkup and we can do a phone consult with the doctor. , she's also organising my medication , one of the things I take I have to get at the hospital pharmacy. I'm lucky they are being so proactive.
I don't know about your husband but mine is terrified I will catch coronavirus because my immune system is low and I also have problems with my white blood cell count. I feel fine and think he is over reacting. Luckily I don't mind sitting at home, The things I want to go to are cancelled anyway. As long as I have the internet, T.V , a few magazines and crochet cotton I'm fine :)
My next Neurologist appt is 23/04 in his rooms. Assuming we haven’t all gone into lockdown by then.
My husband and mum are freaking out about me going out too because my blood tests show that my white blood count is pretty much zero, so no immunity. Yet I don’t tend to pick up things eg colds etc (touch wood)
Rose! Sending e-hugs to you, in hopes that things will get better for you soon!
Rose, Lisa and anyone else with a chronic conditon, or in an older age group or living with someone who has a chronic condition or in an older age group ..... be vigilant, and look after yourselves.
People not practising social distancing.
I'm now walking every morning since I'm not at work. The normal walking route I take is busier than ever. People are bunched up together walking. Am now looking for quieter areas to walk. I'm not saying don't exercise but we need to be mindful of the distance between ourselves and others.
Think I found a better area to walk this morning, not as scenic as my usual route but virtually no one around. Will try it again tomorrow morning. Am only going out to exercise in the morning and no where else during the day unless I have to go to get some groceries. I always take a list to the shops and try and get in and out as quick as I can.
I am having the same problem. I am finding my local area more crowded than ever. Went for a walk at 6:30pm and people shoulder to shoulder. It makes me really anxious and I just go back home straight away. I live in a small apartment, so I am a bit worried about how I am going to maintain my weight and exercise. I use to go to the gym a few times a week and walk about an hour a day. I have barely been able to walk around the block in weeks
My usual walking route with Miss Dog has been deserted. We walk past a huge playground that’s usually jam packed, but of course there’s no one there, and the same with the basketball courts down the end of the street that are usually teaming with teenagers. It’s eerie. I’m really freaking out about next round of restrictions. Will they say we can’t go out at all? Like not even for a walk? We need our daily walk.
But I have noticed that people don’t seem to care about social distancing in the supermarket. We did a quick shop on Thursday night (yes, they had toilet paper!). People were just pushing and shoving past as they normally would. So, as painful as it may be, I can kind of understand why Coles and Woolies are introducing number control into their stores.
But what REALLY peeves me off.......there were disposable rubber gloves all over the ground in the car park. Lots of people are wearing them while they are out, obviously they get back to their car, take them off, and just drop them on the ground. Filthy pigs! It’s not just our shopping centre. I’ve seen it at a few that we’ve been to recently.
I've noticed more people out walking too, I know I'm going to be annoyed when the number control comes into effect in the supermarkets, I'm not a patient person.
It's going to be like one of those trendy nightclubs where you wait out the front to get in.
I too have noticed more & more people out walking. I got up early this morning (around 7am), went out for my walk about 20 minutes later & for about half a block I was the only person around. Then another lady went past me & then on my 2nd lap of the block a few more people started to be out & about (not many though).
I've been quite careful to maintain my distance when I've been on a morning walk, although I admit I really wanted to go & pat a dog I've patted before whilst out this morning. (I knew better than to do it though.) However, social distancing has been really difficult when going to the supermarket; so I'm glad they'll be bringing in measures to restrict the number of people in store, even if people start to get impatient.
I walked my new walking route again this morning and think I'll stick to it for a while as it's definately less crowded than where I usually go.
It does annoy me when someone walks towards you on the footpath and makes no effort to move over when they can walk on the nature strip and let someone pass. I have to move over to avoid people as some people just won't budge.
I am finding the supermarket to be frustrating. Most people are great and then like anything there are always idiots that want to bump into you! one lady coughed into her hand and then started to touch items!!! WTH
I had a lady cough no covering of her mouth whatsoever the other day at the shops. I had been self isolating after being overseas, I overshot it to 16 days to be safe, it was my first trip out of the house and I haven't left again. I live in an inner city area, and it is really hard to social distance, I find I cant even go for a walk. You try and do the right thing, but there are some real inconsiderate people out there.
Some people just don't get it Nicoler112. Before I moved interstate I had to stay in hotel while settling my property. There was no food service so necessary for me to shop for some food for 5-6 days stay. Went to supermarket and one man was touching and squashing all the packets of bread rolls and he didn't even choose one in the end. Another lady was wearing blue gloves, coughing into her hand then touching several items on the shelves so she was spreading her germs too. No wonder there is such a rise in unexplained cases. Social distancing is only a small step, it's the contaminated surfaces that we really need to be 'afraid' of where this virus lives for unknown periods of time. I really feel for those who live in a property where there is not even a balcony to enjoy outside. I am lucky I have a back yard to sit in the sun and get fresh air, and even my former home had 2 enormous balconies to enjoy the outside world, even viewing the cruise ships anchored off shore.
yeah they really dont. yeah we dont have a backyard but we have a lovely balcony. Spent more time on it the last 3 weeks than I probably have in the 2 plus years living here combined. I dont take it for granted anymore, getting to come out and sit in the sun each morning. It has also now become my workplace as I am back to work
I am so lucky to be in isolation with family in the Huon Valley, Tasmania.
My Drs really organised themselves so I could stay here rather than in Sydney.
So it’s a small gripe but my 50th Birthday on Friday was not what I had hoped for.
Here’s to turning 50 again next year and knocking a year off my age as a bonus
Wishing you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pink Hornet. At least you are with family and can really enjoy family time.
Happy birthday Pink Hornet
