    OS ways and Poor Health 11th Sep 16 at 9:56 PM
    Earlier today I joined a very good new thread on getting back to old style ways . I managed to take it in another direction by mentioning how ill health can impact on doing everything the old style way . As this was off topic to the original post . I will be posting on the original topic but without going off in another direction
    This seems to happen a lot of the time across the threads as many old stylers do have to cope with this problem .
    Many moons ago PREPARE AT HOME began a lengthy thread on being os with health problems and there have been a couple of other threads over the years .
    I am wondering if the time is right for another thread on the subject with the proviso it is not offering advice on medical subjects as that is for the professionals . We all do many things day to day to minimise fatigue and pain and though they are little things we have developed them to cope and others may not be aware of how helpful the little changes can be .
    I would be interested to see if others would like to join such a thread . I am not very techie as you will gather from my rambling post and have never started a thread before - I hope this posts !

    Another here from the land of the sleepless ! Mainly it's the never ending heat , lack of air and a brain overloaded with stuff .
    As you know Wolfy life has been very busy in this neck of the woods . Lots of positive outcomes but multiple appointments since February and we're both physically and mentally drained .


    As the keeper of the diaries and lists I've begun to lose the ability to sort what needs doing when . As you'll both know flares take advantage of these time to join in with a good kicking .


    I hope you feel a bit better today Tink . You have such a lot to do try to choose your battles and focus on the absolute priorities . Don't push yourself , you can only manage what you can .


    Much empathy Wolfy as you both wait once more for the appointments system to do its thing . It really isn't long since the last choose and book episode . It's pointless telling you not to worry because I know you will . I just hope things happen soon .


    I know you've had a little visitor to cheer you up . Any more on the horizon ? I lose track .


    Anyway much has happened here in a positive way . One thing is the recommendation by the pain specialist to increase the Zomorph to try to handle the pain levels dd is battling with . More importantly he's strongly advised the addition of a 2nd DMARD to hopefully lesson the pain and lead at some point to less reliance on strong pain relief .
    That's for discussion with the new Rheumo dept . There was a long waiting list so appt is mid July .


    Tomorrow is back to the physio expert who is very good to hopefully have a plan put in place . Every part of the team are communicating with each other so it's an holistic way of doing things which is hopeful .


    I hope AOT,maddie , pauline , Prinzess and those who post or read are ok . If anyone has rain please send it here before we melt like Frosty the snowman .

    LW it's such a worry! Hope you get an appointment soon!

    I'm hoping for this week to be better and so much less stress at work and hoping I can manage to sleep a bit too.

    Should try to meal plan tonight but I can't really be bothered. Did plant some seeds in the garden today and re potted some tomatoe plants as they are getting big!

    Really not with it still but plodding along.

    Hope everyone is doing ok too

    I hope you didn't try meal planning tonight Tink and you're getting ready for bed instead . Just think of all the tomatoes you will have to look forward to soon . You've done enough for now . Sending the magic sleep dust in the hope you will get some sleep tonight . Also hoping work will be less stressful in the coming days .

    Aye, we have Honey the Shih Tzu here til Friday. Then a month with no dog; Ronnie cancelled, as his young mistress is in hospital with a kidney infection, so the family have had to cancel their trip to Cyprus. (Reminds me, I must email and ask how she's faring).

    The NHS Choices thing is a farce. We got the letter telling uds to log on and choose'n'book. So we did - three hospitals to choose from, but only one we can realistically get to (it may be that Mr LW gets told not to drive, further down the road, if the GP's suspicions prove correct; and I simply cannot drive through the middle of a town I don't know. Simply can't be done. Not negotiable.) So opted for local hosp - only there's no appts to book, just had to leave them a message and they're supposed to call Mr LW sometime between now and Friday; if they don't, he has a number to ring. Bluddy farce - why not just refer us locally to start with??
    Sorry for the rant.

    Meantime, he's still coughing; specialist says there's minor scarring on his lungs from having double pneumonia as a child, but nowt sinister, and to go back to GP if he needs to; he's also written to GP suggesting anti-flybotics. So we've booked a GP appt for that - 17th July. That was absolutely the first appt available, with ANY GP in the practise.

    Sometimes I just want to shove my head down the loo and press the flush!!

    And yeah, I have a lupus flare to contend with; but you know what? I don't care. That is unimportant; it's Mr LW I am concerned with.

    Thanks Polly! I didn't do anything last night and had a pizza out of the freezer for supper! Sleep the last 2 nights but had awful dreams

    The work thing wasn't as bad today and I managed to hold my head up and get on with things. I'm hoping it's resolved soon as I really don't like the stress things like this bring.

    We had a new fence and gate put on the side of the house today so we have a bit more privacy and it's more secure than the last one. I'm really paranoid about locking doors and things, I have the doors locked all the time as hate the thought that someone could just walk into your house! Weird I know but I feel better.

    Kids are tired already and it's only Monday - I'm trying to chill out a bit but it's not working too well. When I'm not right the first thing to go is the food - just had to get bread and sand which stuff for DH pack up tomorrow but we have nothing else fresh in. Sure we have some stuff in the freezer that we can survive on for now.

    Hugs to LW and Mr LW too

    I've just checked and I haven't posted here since June 10th and here we are on the 1st day of July . Life has been very busy , hot , sleepless and at times annoying . Many good things have happened though as the lovely team around dd are doing a good job of undoing all the errors in the past and she is making steady progress .
    So many appointments are exhausting but all are done in kind ,positive and often hilarious fashion . Worth every moment of time and effort .
    Evil Consultant is now history . Just under 2 weeks ago our GP added an extra med as lack of sleep was ramping up the anxiety and the agoraphobia was making things very difficult . It's seems amazing so far as apart from the first couple of days and one very hot night she has slept well and woken from restorative sleep . I can't remember when that last happened but it's many years ago .
    It begins with an M but too hot to remember the name at the moment .


    I am plodding , doing as little as possible in the house due to the heat . I feel a bit better joint and muscle wise compared to cold , damp times . Struggling to sleep is a real problem and makes it harder to function the following day . I seem to be writing various little lists for each appointment so nothing is forgotten . Luckily I now put them in my bag as soon as they're done now so am not leaving them at home .


    I've been wondering how everyone is coping with food . I feel hungry but can't fancy cooked food and tend to be picking at odds and ends .


    I hope all are managing . Soon be the summer holidays Tink . I've lost track of the four footed guests Wolfy , you'll know how fast the posts stack up on the Fence thread and cover many topics in one day .Often I can't remember who said what .


    I've not noticed AOT , Prinzess or all the other posters around on OS lately so hope all is well with them .


    I keep meaning to ask Cranky how the leg is now . It's been a long time since she took that tumble down the stairs and I know it wasn't as simple as she first thought .


    Take care all

    Polly, lovely to see your post here and on other thread.

    I am feeling, like many I think, a little weary and rather irritable, the sun has been lovely, but getting too tiring now. Not helping having to do so much garden watering, heavy clay and plants that have been in situ for several years are trying to die. Used hose pipe up until Water Company requested otherwise yesterday, will struggle on with the cans from now on.

    I will go back and read your post properly when it is cooler and my brain is feeling a little less fogged, but great to notice that lots of good things have been happening too.

    Virtual hugs and spoons to everyone.

    MM

    P.S. I have a system when using the hose in that I filled the cans and checked how much I gave to each plant, and then checked how long it took with the hose to put that much water in the can, then counted as I did each plant with the hose, not very scientific, but made me feel that I was not using more water than I would be prepared to carry

    It's good to see you too maddie I wondered how you were .


    Clay is a real challenge for a gardener at the best of times but worse than ever in such hot dry conditions . I'm lucky to have well draining soil and have been able to get to a point where I rarely use the hose . The trees , shrubs and tough perennials have been on a tough regime for years here . I've barely lost one . Frost is more of a problem . Apart from Scented geraniums I grow only the tough perennials .
    I started growing a lot of veg in raised beds and large pots . Salad leaves are in wide deep window box liners and I grow the bush cherry tomatoes in huge terracotta pots . Pots and liners are in groups around the garden . I drown them with the watering can and they all stay damp for quite a while in their own little micro climate .
    I have one of those flat trolleys that can be used to move containers and compost around . The wheelbarrow is also useful . Over the years a lot of people have bought me lovely metal or enamel watering cans . I fill them from the garden tap and use the wheelbarrow or trolley to move the cans around to the areas needing water . It takes a lot of pain and effort out of watering .


    It took my eldest daughter and I a number of years to sort her clay garden in Yorkshire . She then moved to another part of Yorkshire and her soil is perfect .


    I think we're all feeling out of sorts and a bit ratty at the moment . I don't cope well with a lot of sun due to my fair colouring . At least one day the rain will return . There have been some sea breezes along the NW coast today but they have fanned the flames and joined the fires together . Someone was arrested quite quickly and is charged with setting the second fire . So I am doing a lot of ranting at various stupid choices at the moment .


    I'm hearing a couple of helicopters going over as I post . Not sure if it's our air sea rescue one which they may have called as back up . Over near Saddleworth there are now fire services from many areas of the uk lending a hand . It's so sad , I was watching a report about all the wildlife and plants that will never be there for many years if ever .


    Well I 'm waffling again maddie . Just need not to melt before Poldark . Will have a cold drink and start watering the veg and geraniums and fill the bird baths for the umpteenth time today .


    Take care

    I expect a lot of our gardens and plants are suffering from the heat now and I wouldn't be surprised to see a hosepipe ban imposed in our area soon which will be a nightmare for me as I can't lift heavy watering cans having had back surgery.

    However last time a ban was imposed I read the conditions very carefully for our area and spotted that said hosepipes were banned but a hosepipe COULD be used for filling a portable container.

    So I took the hosepipe to the edge of the vegetable patch where I filled up the watering can in situ and then watered all my veg with that. The spirit of the law was observed but it saved me risking further back injury, even though I could only fill the cans half full because they would have been too heavy. Still it did save me lugging cans back and forth to the bottom of the garden where all vegetable patches usually seem to be !

    That sounds fine Primrose in view of your health . I had a rant over on the garden fence earlier today concerning the actions of the only annoying neighbour in these parts spending hours with a pressure washer and that led on to what each of us do.


    Looking back to the summer of 76 we ran hosepipes out from the bathroom window to siphon the bathwater on to the plants . Washing up bowls were emptied on the plants . In my case that ship has long since sailed . I was in my twenties then and no way can I go to extremes nowadays .


    The wheelbarrow or flat bed truck are not too difficult to move to the pots and beds that have to be watered . I did it a short while ago and can feel the neck and shoulders complaining but it will calm down at some point .


    It's nice to hear from you . Has the surgery helped at all? It's hard trying to pace at such times but you sound as though you wont push to your limits so hopefully if improvement is expected it will come .


    I confess a few good heavy downpours would help at the moment but no sign at all in the days ahead .


    On a lighter note I saw a picture posted by Lancashire Fire Services on the bbc Lancashire online page . it's a fireman who's with the fire crew from Nottingham who with many other outside crews are trying to help fight the fire here in the NW . There is a tiny bird nestled in the big glove worn by the officer . Rescued from the moor and hopefully will be ok .

    Hi everyone

    Nice to see you back Polly!

    I'm on count down to the summer holidays and have a 6 week plan - I just need to organise food - meals to prep and snacks so I'm not having to stress.

    The sun has been great and we have been enjoying the garden! I've been planting and have potatoes - green beans - peas - strawberries - tomatoes - chilli - herbs and lettuce! Phew! They are all just in pots but I'm happy with what we have built up! I'm looking at ways I can freeze or store any extra crops I get? Just hoping for something first tho!

    Money is a bit tight this month and think it's going to have to be until Xmas. Been over on the DFW board and looking at saving and stashing what I can for now. Work has been rally hard to as there is an on going dispute and it's causing me so much stress - I'm trying really to think about my mind more. I'm looking at what I can and can't control and I can only control what I think and my actions - I have no control over anything else so trying to keep my mind focused on that and just enjoy my time when I'm home.

    I'm finding sleeping hard again but think it's all part of the course for now.

    Morning folks!

    Despite living by the coast, I am wilting in the heat! Roll on October!

    We don't have a hosepipe ban here...well, not yet. But I don't have a car to wash, and Mum's small herb garden COULD be watered with buckets...so it wouldn't affect me much!....A restriction on showers would be a problem though! I shower a LOT! (Partly to keep me cool, and partly as part of my skin-condition-management-program)


    I am REALLY hoping to get up enough energy for a walk down to the cliffs soon. It is just not right to live by the sea and not actually go and see it sometimes!!!

    The heat is making sleep difficult too - I live in an adapted ground-floor flat - and we are advised NOT to leave windows open overnight. (We have had unfortunate incidents with people getting in through open windows in the night before....It gets SO hot overnight!

    I am somewhat jealous of you Tink!...Your harvest should be wonderful!...We used to grow tomatoes -and had apple trees....and Mum made the most AWESOME chutney!

    I have already started on my Christmas prep...knitting for the OCC boxes is now complete (just need to sew up the hats)...and Christmas Cards are being considered (I make my own - Cross Stitch)...It's not really 'good planning' to start early.... more necessity as I am so slow!

    One big bit of news....I have finally done it!!!!!!!8230;.I mentioned some time ago that I was going to do it...and I did...!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8 230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!823 0;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230; !!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!! !8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8 230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!823 0;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230; !!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;!!!8230;...I have got a wig!!!!! A lovely woman agreed to visit me at home, and brought some samples When she came in she smiled and said 'Female Pattern Alopecia?' and was so helpful...I now have a shaggy bob of brown hair with reddish and blonde highlights...a full head of hair for the first time in decades!...I can go out to the shops without wearing a hat!...I am already thinking of getting a second one (cropped perhaps, brown with ash blonde streaks)

    Busy day today...I want to clean out the fridge...and I have a pile of magazines to sort through(clip any patterns/recipes...the rest go on the communal table for other residents to grab what they want)

    Good to hear from others here!

    [/QUOTE]

    I share your frustration about not being able to have the windows open at night in a downstairs flat because of the fear of intruders. When we were in this position we rigged up a very effective Heath Robinson intruder alarm for no cost. This will work if you have normal windows with side opening handles

    Tie some strong dark cotton or string through the holes in the opening tabs of two or three empty fizzy drink cans such as CocaCola. Make the string long enough so that the bunch of cans dangles below the Window ledge out of line of sight.

    Make a small loop at the other end of the piece of string and slip it firmly over the top of the window handle so that it doesn,t easily slip off.

    Then open the Window a few inches. Once its dark you dont see the dangling string but but the slightest movement trying to open the window further will cause a tremendous jangling noise as the aluminium cans all rattle together. It works!

    I believe you can also buy small battery operated sensors which you can place in a room which will set off an alarm if any movement is sensed but be mindful they may go off an 3am if you need to visit the bathroom !

    Hi Everyone!

    I feel like I'm butting in here but I think you might me the ones to help me.

    Does anyone here use a chair when cooking? I can't stand very long in the kitchen and I miss cooking but all I can find are perching stools, which I feel are too low down, and bar stools which don't seem safe.

    Do you have any recommendations?

    Hi Bertles!

    You're not butting in...we are a lovely and accepting bunch over here...always ready to welcome someone new! (You DID bring cake didn't you??!! )

    My kitchen is pretty small...I tend to bring prep a bit in the kitchen, and then bring bowls into the lounge so I can do more stuff whilst sitting in my big comfy chair!

    I am a short lass, and the idea of a bar stool makes me snicker a little....no WAY could I clamber on top of one and perch there even without a deadly weapon (aka veg knife!) in my unsteady hands!

    I also make the most of gadgets...no way I could stand up long enough to chop onions et.c for soup, so I use a chopper...and then recently got a soup maker that cooks and blends for me.

    Have you considered getting one work surface 'dropped' so you can sit there with a low chair?


    It really boils down to what works for you!

    Hello everyone and a big welcome to Bertles

    Prinzessilein I too am making more and more use of kitchen gadgets (I am a bit of a gadget freak), but they do help as I find it difficult to mix/chop/whisk etc now. I love my soup maker, OH mocked just a tiny bit when I bought it, but he loves the soups it produces. A bonus is that he is "the washer upper" here so don't have to do too much of that. I am thrilled for you about your new hairdo/s.

    Bertles I had wondered about replacing one of our kitchen stools with a perch one, but would not help if it was too low

    Primrose I love the sound of your DIY intruder alert and thanks for reminding me that if we end up with a ban that I can fill to cans from it. Saving lots of water from the house sinks and basins and using that, we have a massively long pipe run from the boiler to the bathrooms and it annoys me greatly, but at least I can use the water in the summer for outside.

    Tink sorry about all the works issues, sending you good vibes for being able to compartmentalise stuff and not lettting is spoil your home time.

    Polly I hope that you have been able to make up some of the lost sleep, so far not had too many problems

    I did my hour of strength training with the PT this morning, no get and and go left, but although there are a host of things I would like to get done we have cold things for supper and will just need to water the bits that are struggling later. Tennis to be watched, book to be read to nothing more strenuous

    Just popping in to say welcome to Birtles . I had a perching stool which could be height adjusted to be able to do things at worktop height . The only problem was the legs stuck out at at an angle and I was forever tripping over them !


    As Prinzess said you can prep things sitting in armchair or somewhere other than the kitchen . If you have a freezer frozen veg is a good buy and you can get bags of mixed veg for stews etc .


    Way back near the beginning of the thread are pages of tips to make life a little easier so it's worth having a read of them .


    Apologies for not getting back the other day . I did a few phone calls and emails and started to feel sick with a thumping headache .
    I've staggered through the last few days with the help of lucozade which I've never been too fond of .


    It's just the heat . I've always struggled once it gets hot . Just two appts tomorrow and thankfully it will be the weekend .



    I'll hopefully be back here on Saturday . I'm so glad Prinzess that your dream has come true . Make sure you swish that bob as you go , it must have really lifted your spirits .


    Tink As usual it's all systems go with you . I remember back when you were sorting what to grow and now you're beginning to see the results of your hard work . I hope the situation at work can be sorted you're doing your best to avoid stress so it's a pity it's happening in the workplace .


    Maddie and Primrose very little sleep happening for me at the moment , dds new med is making her sleepy so apart from the odd night she's getting more sleep than she's had in years .


    I live in a quiet area in a house but we've had a couple of attempted break ins recently . Police have advised no open windows . I react badly to insect bites and we get lots of bitey things here so the windows stay closed .


    There isn't a hint of rain on the way , it's been so humid I was hoping it would trigger a storm but no .


    I'm wondering if Wolfy is having one of the Lupus flares . I hope not .


    Hope you're ok AOT .

    Morning!

    Feeling a bit better today but it's been an awful week! Work is horrendous ...

    Was at the drs yesterday and have increased my anti depression medication, got some tablets to help me sleep too as I just can't switch off at the moment.

    The heat is an absolute litter too for me - it's lovely having the sun shine but it drains me!

    Enough doom and gloom - my garden is coming along lovely! Got some big work happening tomorrow so am going to have to move all the plants etc out of the way. We have 5 10ft trees getting cut down so it's going to be a mess outside but at least it will be all done by Monday.

    Finding it hard to cook a lot at the moment and shop but it's not too bad. Just hate being down and not managing.

    Take care everyone - I'll read back and reply to people soon.

    Ok I'm back and feel a bit more human!

    Watched the match and it was good we won! I'm hoping for a final next week with England in it! We will see!

    That's great news about your wig - my friend has 2 and looks like a different person when she goes from blonde to brown!

    I would be wary leaving window open in a downstairs apartment - maybe a standing fan would be better for the warm nights!

    Hope everyone else is doing well
