13th FEBRUARY 2022 BACK AND TRYING TO GET THINGS PUT RIGHT – BOTH ON HERE AND IN LIFE ITSELF. WORKING ON SWAPS I FAILED TO SEND – 2 DONE – 8 TO GO!
Caught Covid-19 on Christmas Eve 2021! Now living with Long Covid.
Life has been strange and painful these last few years. In and out of hospital several times a year since 2013.
Heart attack x 2. Unstable Angina. Stents inserted.
Chronic Diverticulitis – at least two hospital admissions a year. Plus several bouts just treated at home by GP.
Chronic/Severe Osteoarthritis in hips, knees, ankles. Medics won't do hip replacement due to heart condition. I fall at least once a week – which isn't funny, even though some folks laugh when I fall.
Mental Health issues – Bipolar 2, OCD, Panic & Anxiety Attacks, Self-harm and suicide attempts.
'15th FEBRUARY 2016 - I'M GOING INTO HOSPITAL ON WEDNESDAY 17TH FEBRUARY FOR AN OPERATION SO I WON'T BE ONLINE UNTIL TUESDAY 23rd FEBRUARY - I'M TAKING POSTCARDS/ENVELOPES/STAMPS/SWAP ADDRESSES IN WITH ME. I'LL RATE ANYTHING RECEIVED AFTER 17TH AS SOON AS I GET HOME. THANKS IN ADVANCE! ========================================
