Thanks, could of warned me though, as the shock has made me go all Funny-er than normal... :o)
I am not sure, i had a curry tonight with boiled rice, was a bit boring but edible, not sure if it was healthy or not ?
I have a craving for hot food lately. If I resist, it will go. I am quite enjoying the simple food. I made the mistake of buying a jar of Yackandndah peanut satay - it was low enough in salt and fat to be an occasional treat - and I cooked up a stack of frozen vegetables (was being lazy) and some fat free noodles, and had a couple of real pigouts. The noodles were bad - just no nutrition - but it was so nice for a change. Anyway, it was fairly hot. I don't usually like really hot food, but this was just right. I think I bought the sauce in Brisbane. I'll have to go shopping there next time (in a couple of weeks I have another workshop).
I saw the cardiologist on Tuesday. My circulation is pretty good, so at least I have no extra worries. I have to have a CAT scan on my lungs to rule out anything else, as the pressure isn't equal, but basically he has left it up to me whether I change my medication or add fluid tablets. The prognosis is still poor, and he doesn't want me to exercise or have stress (I work with homeless men, for Pete's sake!), but he did agree to slow exercise, and I must stop when I feel the need - in other words, don't push myself. Life is not that simple. I will make a plan of what to do when. Firstly I have to get through xmas and all the running around I have to do for work. I hate this time of the year. And we're having our yearly appraisal by the Government in a couple of weeks. I've done no preparation. I figure I can just run out of the office screaming if it all goes wrong. That will confuse them, and then I'll run away from home and hide out with the gypsies. Good plan, hey? Thought of it myself!
I dont think a treat now and then does any harm really, i think its a build up of bad food over an extended period that does the damage, i think you have done really well altering your diet the way you have it takes a lot of willpower, I have a taste for spicy food herbs n spices add so much to a meal even a boring meal can be spiced up to taste better, which is what i often do to the scouring look of my partner, What a result too off your cardiologist, you must be really pleased i know i would be, tell you now if the pump is circulating the old red juice around then your onto a winner, everything else will fall into place you wait n see, Aint it a joke when they say dont get stressed, life itself is stress, as soon as you leave the front door of your home it starts, I had to laff, my doc said,, if you find yourself in a stressful noisy position get up and walk out,,,WALK OUT? what planet are these doc's on? anyway, your work with fruity old fella's must be a real treat at times,,how many medals have you got now for bravery above and beyond the call of duty!!!
"Fruity old fellas" is only a very small portion of the equation. The average age is 25-45, most have mental illness or substance abuse, but pepper that with every social problem known to man, regular agression, prisoners on release, etc, etc, and you might have a clearer picture. A policewoman once said to me she had no idea how we could work with the clientele (this was at a 140 bed place where I worked for 10 years). I laughed and said the police have to work with the same people. She said, "Yes, but we have guns!" That just about says it all.
Maybe you need a gun,,I have an old revolver if you want to borrow it, dont know if it will still fire but you could always belt um across the back of the noggin with it like in the films,,,that be fun wouldn't it for ya Hummm!!!
You've known me for all these years an' you haven't cort on that I has a pointy stick?! No bullet is faster or can do more dammidge than wot my stick can. Tsk! Guns!...
Do ya think they'd let it froo customs? An' azzit got bullets?
Got bullets will travel,,,,Customs,, i juss tell um its a pest repellent and they lets me through, But, if your happy with your pointy stick so be it,, Ahh funny, i stuck the barrel through the letterbox once at this fella selling windows dear dear dear he run like a jack rabbit .....
