Hi Mr Happy

My body cholesterol reading was up the last time they checked but this was not done at the same time as this blood test. I believe they are suggesting type 2 diabetes. Ill be honest i had my last dose of metformin on sunday evening. I am now back to who i am. I am bright eyed and bushy tailed. I felt like my mind was fuzzy and couldnt concentrate properly. I dont my manager at work and she was scared lol. I am not completely convinced with the whole diabetes thing, this is not because i am in denial honest.

When I was 16 years old, (I am 37 now), I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. This causes a hormone imbalance and can play havoc with insulin. I was told a year ago that metformin would be helpful for my symptoms. I started taking the metformin but kept forgetting, hence the shock to my system recently. There was weeks when i forgot completely or took it a couple of times a week. My dose was suppose to be 2 x 500mg. I went for this blood test and was told my blood sugar level was fine. I mentioned the prescription for metformin and the GP said that i must be diabetic then. I stated that i rarely took it but she refused to take note of this. She was on a mission to send me to a diatician etc. Anyway i have stopped the metformin and will be going to Lloyds chemist on thursday to have a blood sugar test for free. I have been advised by boots that the metformin will be out of my system within 2 days.

I have been out to morissons to buy a load of veg including broccoli to help me on my way. Thanks for your support. I wish my GP was like you.

I didnt know it could be used for obesity. It would make sense as it stops you thinking of food as you are too busy worrying that you are about to be sick. It also makes you very light headed. 4 days of this drug has had an effect on me.

Maisie1 what you said happened today. I got a letter from the GP stated that there was a breakdown of communication and that she did not want her staff or patients to witness unpleasantness in the surgery. Due to the unpleasantness i have been told my notes will be with the PCT by the 14th march.

I have written a full and frank letter to the PCT today as well as sending an email to the MP of the Department of Health.

I am looking at more natural options thanks mr happy chappy. I have been put on metformin but this makes me light headed, sick and very very sleepy. On the plus side i have made a point of going to the gym more often and did 4 spinning classes last week.

Does anyone know if the PCT will take any notice of me? I am also wondering if i should look for a new dr while we wait for a verdict as i have to consider my son as well as myself. I guess it is in the GP's best interests if i go quietly as i hear they lose funding if i put in a complaint to the PCT.

Thanks for your support.

Message 20 they have sent my records on their way already. I am no longer their issue and believe me im more annoyed then you.

My blood went to Frimley Park funnily enough message 21. It sounds like they are incompetent idiots to.

Thanks everyone for your reply.

I am stubborn to so half of me thinks how dare they tell me to leave. The GP admitted she knew I had rung many times but she did not know that the receptionist had promised me a call back. She also confirmed that they had plenty of appointments and that she could not understand why the receptionist had told me to wait a week. I was polite each time i called as i was at work and couldnt raise my voice or be rude in the middle of a banking hall. I agree that different people take things in different ways. I explained to her that i understood her frustration as they had just put in a new computer system that apparently did not want to communicate with the hospital computer system.

Hi everyone

I have a bit of an issue and was wondering if anyone had an experience like mine.

2 weeks ago i went to my GP for a blood test. I was told to return in 7 days for the results. I rang up after 7 days to be told the results were not on the system. I kept on ringing on a daily basis to no avail. Eventually i asked for an appointment to see the GP to discuss the situation I was told there was not any apointments available on the day i wanted which was a week ahead of time. I called many times more to be told they had asked the hospital to fax the details over but nothing happened. It ended up with me turning up at the surgery a little annoyed with a letter of complaint. Suddenly my blood results appeared and an appointment was available for the GP.

I arrived to see the GP and found the practice manager in the room. We had a discussion about my complaint letter. The practice manager then left. The GP then proceeded to tell me that I had diabetes and also that it might be a good idea to find another surgery to go to as the receptionist feels uneasy around me. The GP also said that she does not think that I was rude or lying as she has known me long enough. It just feels like she is trying to make her staff happy at the cost of the patient.

I was not abusive or violent towards any staff. I was also upset about my situation so couldnt say anything about the GP's comment.

Do you think I should leave? Should i stand my ground and stay as i have not done anything wrong? I have been with this surgery for 7 years and it is 5 minutes from my front door.

I have the right to complain to the PCT about my unfaur treatment but do you think it is worth it. I am in two minds at the moment.

bedbugs
Posted: 9/1/2012 1:26:28 PM
Hi everyone

Just wanted to know how you would get bedbugs in your house? I also wondered how easy it is to get rid of them? The reason i ask is my sister has told me they have been discovered in her house and Im too scared to visit.

Any information you have will be gladly received.

muslim fight for 5 min prayer break in company time
Posted: 6/9/2012 11:29:07 AM
Mr Snipe I dont have a mud head or less brains then a banana. It is funny how this thread will go though. We will have the odd religious comment then others will defend and finally it will get deleted. Muslims have been praying in the work place for years. My brother goes off at lunch time for the Friday prayers which should be done in the mosque every week. I have got to say that praying actually puts me in a peaceful state of mind and ready to get on to my next challenge.

muslim fight for 5 min prayer break in company time
Posted: 6/9/2012 10:46:32 AM
I am a muslim that prayers at work. I have a shower in the morning before work so im usually clean until prayer time. It literally takes 2 minutes to clean up for prayer time and not more then 5 minutes to prayer. We have to prayer 5 times a day but due to the fact the days are long at the moment I dont have to prayer at work.

I also make coffee and tea for my colleagues. I am sure the time i take to re wash the mug (the cleaner is filthy) is probably the same as most people take to prayer. My colleagues have seen me prayer and think it is quite interesting. There are only 3 people at my work place that are muslim but i am the only one who actually prayers. My manager is happy and my colleagues dont care. I often work back as we are short staffed so no one can say im dossing.

Heel pain
Posted: 2/23/2012 3:49:04 PM
Personally I dont see a problem asking a public forum a medical question as there is that posibility that there maybe someone on here that can answer that question. I am the kind of woman that would have to be on deaths door before I go to a Dr as I dont want to waste their time even though I am in pain. I would normally just take pain killers and ignore it but on this one occasion the situation got worse. I do not believe that I did the wrong thing asking the question but I do think that if anyone does not have constructive comments they should just keep quiet instead of being rude. I read the forum comments alot but if I do not have any experience in that area Ill keep my mouth shut. Im sure no matter what I say there are people out there that have to think they are right so I'll just leave them to it. It must be an age thing.

I stopped wearing heels 10 years ago when I got pregnant with my son btw

My answer sounds a bit garbled previously as i was writing it on my mobile. My initial reason for asking this question was just to find out if anyone else had experienced the same and if so what they did. I did not expect an indepth analysis of the heel or a PHD of what the causes could be. Regardless of my reasoning I didnt expect to get criticism for it but maybe next time ill spend time talking about fake/natural boobs and their merits.

Heel pain

It seems that ToughCookie was right. I went to the Dr's the other day and he has suggested stretching exercises.

I didnt realise this forum was just about how to get your leg over or I would not have asked the question. I didnt expect medical advice but do appreciate that everyone has experiences that could help others. Thank you for the constructive comments.

Stephen Lawrence
Posted: 11/17/2011 4:52:11 PM
I read Duwayne Brooks' book about the murder and their friendship. I remember welling up as the words that he used made me feel like i was with him that night. I hope to god that they get convicted and that the family finally feel some justice has been done. I cannot imagine what his parents have gone through with respect to the pain they must feel about his death. Stephen was one year older then me to and it makes me wonder what he could have acheived if he was with us now.

Thanks for your posts.

What I meant message 5 was that I dont want this thread just focusing on the racial side which then ends up in arguements which then ends up with the thread disapearing. I found your comments very interesting.

Hi guys and girls

I just noticed on the news that they were talking about the murder of Stephen Lawrence and Duwayne Brooks' evidence in court today. I did a quick search but no threads turned up unless i was doing it wrong. Anyway I was just wondering what your opinions on this case are. Im not interested in the racial side to the story but more about whether there will be a conviction this time due to forensic evidence. I dont want this thread turning into another racial war.

Thanks for your comments.

Hello everyone

I just wondered how people celebrated their wedding anniversarys? Do you see it as just another day or do you buy presents for each other? Do you think its a money making waste of time? Would you forgive your hubby/wife for forgetting?

Thanks for your replies.

Message 2 its great you have a positive attitude to things that have not worked out. Its her loss lol.

Thanks for your replies. I guess im going to have to spill a bit more of the story before i gain the insight i need.

A friend of mine phoned me in tears the other night. She had a big bust up with her hubby. She works in a bank and has been looking at his account. She has not told him she has looked at his accounts. He came home and started arguing with her. He told her that he knew times and days that she had looked at his account. He also said that he would take her to the police station if she did it again. She rang me as i have a law degree but could not think how he could obtain that information and what criminal sanction he could use.

I dont know if there is anyone who is in the banking world maybe as a manager who could help me with this question.

Thanks.

Sorry message 5 what i meant was is there anyway the customer would know that their partner is looking at the account. For example say i was your girlfriend and i worked in Barclays. I decide to look at your account to see what you have been upto but say nothing to you. Is there a way that you could find out times and days that i had been looking at your account??? Does this depend on the search criteria i.e me putting your surname and dob or postcode???

Hello everyone

Just a quick question. If you had a position in a bank and was able to look at your partners accounts do you think this is right???? If it happened to you would you be upset by this.

Thanks for your replies.

Thanks message 2 for your imput. I do remember that thread but didnt use my brain to consider it in this situation.

When do you stop making effort with friends?
Posted: 3/9/2011 4:47:58 AM
Hi Abbie

Congrats on the new addition.

Yes it is hard when you have a little one and you try to socialise with your friends. I have been lucky with my friends in that i was one of the first to have a baby but they stayed around. Alot of my friends are now in the baby stage whereas my son is 9 years old, although i am hoping to have a couple more in the near future. Maybe you should wait a bit and see if your friends make the effort. It may well be that they think you are too busy to go out etc. The other option is to suggest some time out with them going to the pub for a few drinks or bowling etc just to show them you are still you as a person.

I recently stopped talking to a friend because she made ****y comments about my hubby. Hes not perfect, infact hes a bit of a pain, but if I am going through a hard time i dont need someone to try to kick me further down.

Personally i would suggest a bit of social time with them and see what they say.

morale duty of the unemployed?
Posted: 12/21/2010 4:11:11 PM
I was talking to one of my work colleagues about this and he stated that in his country prisoners are made to cut the grass and maintain the city. I think we should make use of the prison population instead of giving them a gym we should give them a shovel etc. If the unemployed chose to shovel snow they should be given some extra money for their effort and this may also give them a sense of well being while unemployed as it can be very depressing.

Your Most Romantic Moment
Posted: 12/5/2010 4:16:27 PM
My romantic moment was when i went to watch my hubby play football. He works as a chef in a kitchen and went straight to football from work. When i got there he played for a while and then went into the changing room inbetween games. He game out with a slab of cream cake and paper plates as well as cutlery. This was the first time he had made a cream cake and he left it with my son and I.

Funky much that i would love to share my sex life with you i best not!

Last night he decided not to go to the party because he had hurt his foot but ended up sleeping at his cousins instead of coming home. He said he thought i understood he wasnt coming home when he phoned but he had not confirmed it. He also didnt end up at the party so why didnt he come home? This is what im going to ask him when he comes home tonight. I dont think hes cheating but i hate the fact that his cousin phones and tells him to jump and he says how high!

His cousin has come over to the house a few times as well as some of his friends. To be honest we dont go out like we use to due to our financial situation and the fact that he works shifts. During the week he works 11am - 8pm and the weekend is 7am - 3pm. On occasions he has worked double shifts to cover our rent. I started a new job last week and so i am out the house 9-5 every day. Quality time is something that i miss but late at night we chat for hours when we are in bed. He does do little things to make me feel happy but ill be honest i am demanding. I also feel that he worrys how to tell me things because i get annoyed quite quickly. The problem i have is the fact that i lived with domestic violence and then stayed on my own for 7 years. I am finding it hard to adjust and sometimes i feel im not affectionate enough towards him. I am not saying hes perfect but my history seems to be getting in the way of my future. My son, who is 8, also finds it hard to adjust to a new person in the house. My hubby has said in the past that i talk to him like i talk to my son. I do wonder sometimes whether i should have stayed single and least then he would have met someone who doesnt have the emotionally baggage that i have.

Hi everyone

Thanks for your replies. I do worry that i am going to drive him away as i am acting very clingy. The two years that we spent dating was great as he went where he wanted and so did i. Once we got married, financially, things became hard and so we started bickering. I have gone to watch him play football 1000 times and know all his friends who all seem very nice. I live in surrey and he normally goes to north london. The last train back to my place is 12.20 from Waterloo. I have no reason to doubt him and he always phones me when hes at his cousins house so i know thats whats happening. He has moved to be with me and left all his friends as well as family behind. He pays the rent and does all his husband duties I just find it hard to let him go a bit. If i thought he was cheating believe me his feet would not touch the ground. He always asks for permission before he stays over to.

I want to thank you Abbie for your comments as alot of my friends say the same as you

His cousin is single and that has been one of my points that once he meets someone my hubby will be on the back burner.

We have had to compromise on the whole bed thing to. That was a headache and a half. I think we have had a few culture clashes as hes african and im pakistani but we are both muslim.

Hi everyone

Just thought i would throw this question out to the forum although im sure ill get a bit of whiplash in the process.

As most of you know i got married in august and have had ups and downs with my new hubby. It has been hard as we have not lived together and so when it happened we had a few issues. One of the problems that I faced was the fact that my hubby wanted to stay with his cousin once a week as they are very close, infact he is the only family in this country. This i felt was unreasonable as i thought married life was about us being together. He understood my concerns and has stopped doing it so much. Tonight he has a football tournament and there is a after party. He has just phoned and said he wants to go and was it ok? He said because it will be late he will most likely stay over. Im not sure what to say. Would i be clingy by asking him to come home or should it just be expected? I know if the roles were reversed he would not bat an eyelid but why do i find it so hard?

Im not looking for attention and nor am i flaunting the fact that i am married. I would really appreciate some advice.

Thanks.

Posted: 10/8/2010 2:47:11 AM
Hi OP

This is quite a difficult question. Cheaters and liars are like low life to me. I am not saying i never lie but big lies are not acceptable. I guess i would have to look at the circumstances but to be honest i would feel that he was a very weak man to cheat in the first place.

Thanks Bored, your informaton is very useful. I know i need to take it in sooner rather then later and its been on its last legs for quite a while. I was so surprised when it passed the MOT in april. Ive been looking for another car so that I could palm this one off but looks like i might be too late.

To everyone else thanks for making me laugh especially Mr Oggers. Do you think there is any chance of me borrowing that sexy car of yours hairy rob???

Posted: 9/30/2010 2:56:13 PM
I would just like to state that my car is not pouring oil on the highway while i drive so all motor cyclists are ok so dont worry about them.
I would also like to state that my car is crap but my crap thanks.
Lastly i would like to state that just that it is sexist to expect all women to know nothing about cars it is also sexiest to expect all men to know about cars. My hubby is useless in this area.
I am only driving locally and keeping a good eye on my dipstick. My car is not overheating or letting off any dodgy smells. I would like to thank all the lovely guys who have helped with my question.

Thanks message 5. To be honest i didnt want to hear what you said as i knew it was coming. There is no dodgy smell or black smoke coming out the car. If i leave the car, esp over night, it leaves some oil on the road. Its normally about the size of a saucer. Im keeping an eye on the oil levels and only driving local but i fear i will be car less soon.

Devon geek you are so naughty. I dont think i would get more then a tenner though. I definately know what to do with a dip stick and where it is found. Do you think i could keep it going till after xmas? Most people are poor after xmas and dont want to buy a car so im hoping to use that to my advantage.

Hello everyone

I just wondered if there was any ladies or gents who could help me with my problem.

I have a L reg nissan micra (yes i know its old) and it has started to leak a little oil. I am very worried that this is going to cost me big money and hoped someone could advise me. Would it be better for me to part exchange it quickly or could it be connected to the fact that I need a new exhaust? Please help

Thanks message 2. I am just worried about the cost as im not working at present.

Football v Relationship
Posted: 9/22/2010 5:17:44 AM
Hi OP

I got married a few weeks ago. My hubby is very much into football. When I was dating him I would go and watch him play as he said he would always play better with me around. He goes out with his mates to watch football and sometimes even sleeps over at his cousins in London after watching football most of the night. I personally dont have a problem with it. I have been on my own for 8 years with my son so i enjoy having time to myself. As alot of people on here have said weigh up the pros and cons of your relationship. There must be things that he does for you? Maybe you could have a hobby that you enjoy on the weekend. At the end of the day you need to sit down with him and tell him how you feel as some men just need reminding (and some women as in my case). If hes just not interested in compromising with you then I think you may have your answer.

Good luck.

Hi everyone.

I got married 3 weeks ago and my hubby likes sleeping on the floor. He has always slept on the floor and at first i didnt like it. I guess now ive got use to it. We both get what we want in my bed and then he sleeps on the floor and i get the bed to myself. We are sleeping in the same room so i dont see what the problem is. Am i wrong?

Posted: 7/17/2010 3:33:59 AM
Hiya OP congratulations on your little man.

My son is 8 years old and i found it really hard to leave him to. Just make sure you have someone you trust, that knows your routine and try to have a nice evening. Its not the easiest thing to do, I know, but it will get easier as time goes on. The main thing is to find someone who you trust to look after little man and you may call 1000 times but they will understand. At the end of the day you have to have faith in you. I know after having a baby you feel this hugh responsibility which is exactly what it is. You will always have people telling you what to do as their child may have walked by 3 months (joke) or managed to work Einstein's theory out by 1 years old. There seems to be alot of competition even from the Health visitor who expect your child to sit at a certain age and eat solids when she wants it to happen. All children are individuals and have their own talents. Please ignore any negative comments as they clearly dont know you very well if they think all you want to do is dump your child here, there and everywhere.

Good luck babe.

The benefits of soya products vs dairy from cows
Posted: 7/8/2010 4:17:06 AM
Mr Reason you have done good with your diet I am impressed. I have polycystic ovaries so find it hard to lose weight esp around the middle. I have heard that the diet that a diabetic follows is good for my condition but i am not 100% sure of this.

I want to thank everyone for their replies.

Hello everyone

Ive just done a thread search on this but I have not really received an answer so I thought i would ask you guys.

I recently went on a healthy cooking course and learnt quite alot about how to cook with using dairy products. I just wondered if there is anyone who has chosen to be vegetarian/vegan and felt better because of it? I have changed to soya milk and have got to say I have started losing weight which is great. The teacher went on about battery chickens and all the hormones injected into our meat. She also stated that eggs and milk were a complete no no in her book and that is why the western world seem to have a high percentage of osteoporosis (brittle bones). The teacher is chinese, middle aged and looks very fit. She has not been to a doctor for the last 10 years.

My question is do you believe a vegetarian/vegan diet is the way to go health wise and does anyone have any experience of this?

Thanks for your replies

Taxi driver shoots dead 11 people in Cumbria.

Message 41 i agree with your point with regards to the law being changed and my sympathys are with anyone who has suffered due to gun crime.

I am sure that when the police are called about a person running around the county with a gun they have specialist officers who deal with this. They have been trained and would have been wearing bullet proof clothing. I maybe wrong in this case but that would have been the normal procedure.

It seems to me that the police are only good at shooting innocent people such as de menzies but when someone is rampaging across the county they are hiding in vans or bushes!

Fox-hunting.... should it remain banned..?
Posted: 5/27/2010 4:55:04 AM
I think a decision should be made after Cameron has been put in a fox suit and hunted himself. Once he has been attacked maybe he will understand how the foxes feel.

Things that go bump in the night

Message 11 ive never heard a Gt Dane snore although when i think about them i remember that funny episode of only fools and horses.

My neighbour on the other side has a baby that cries but that is not a problem as i dont hear it at 2am and im sure your neighbours dont hear your dog at that time either. I try to give and take but some people are just not interested.

Things that go bump in the night

Thanks everyone for your comments. I can understand if this was annoying in a flat as ive lived in a very badly sound proofed flat. I now live in a house which is terraced. I would think that there would be better sound proofing in a house but maybe im wrong im not sure. The thing is i dont know what door it is as i dont have squueaky ones. This neighbour has complained about petty things like me cutting the hedge on my side so i just thought it was funny like my landlord did. I might be wrong though.

Message 10 a friend of mine has offered to buy me a can of wd40 for my wedding night lol.

Message 8 your guess is as good as mine.It all started because i complained about their small yappy dog barking at 2am and now they are amusing my landlord. I am so lucky that my landlord is easy going and use to work in environmental health so knows about people like them.

Hi everyone

I have just received a letter from my landlord as my neighbours have complained about the fact that i have a squeaky door in my house. We spent the good part of the conversation laughing as its just ridiculous.

Anyway my question to everyone is what little things annoy you? Would you do anything about it?

Thanks for your replies. I hope everyone sees that this is meant to be light hearted not a way for me to **** about my neighbours etc.

EDIT Message 2 you are so cheeky! I think a royal wave should surfice when people dont indicate lol. Im looking forward to the replies as im sure they will make me laugh just like that letter did this morning.

Grandmother of 88 murdered in her home...
Posted: 5/19/2010 3:56:19 AM
I also agree with message 5 and never thought i would see the day haha. People who do this kind of mindless murder should suffer for what they have put that poor family through.

BTW Muslims can be any colour so fake tan is not necessary lol.
