    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Can't use my laptop because the adapter lead has broken. Where it plugs in the wires are exposed and was sparking. Not so easy to use my phone as I have to keep increasing the page size to read the forum posts.

    I think my ear is broken

    Not the hearing bit but the outside bit, it feels hot and sore round the top edge and looks a totally different shape to the other one.
    Been like this for a couple of weeks but really sore this afternoon for some reason

    Take care ....

    Well, if you don't mind me joining the thread, my right arm has been playing up for about three weeks. Only when I turn it, or lift things like a heavy pan, but it's rather annoying. No idea what it is, or what's caused it, either. Too trivial to see the quack about (probably an internal bruise or something) but irritating, nonetheless.

    I had thought it was easing off but it flared up again today, I shall phone the triage nurse and ask for advice about the next step.

    Small one, went to town for a hour and the main bus stop was closed I think due to them about to start digging up the roads as around the corner they were working on the pipes for a week (though never once saw workmen there no matter the time of day)

    Meant bus had to go all around the centre, added about 3 or 4 minutes to journey

    That and there was zero evidence of workmen even putting barriers up or dug up roads, if the digging is starting tomorrow why has it been closed since today/last night!

    There's quite a lot of pictures if you search on google for "broken ear cartilage". You might find one that looks similar to yours perhaps?

    Sounds like a fungal infection. If you have any canestan rub a bit of that on
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I'm not a doctor either which is a good thing considering the number of seemingly decrepit contributors to this thread.

    I wasn't really looking for any advice, I was just posting the current Wizard irritation.

    I have a new one now anyway that far outweighs the broken ear.

    I have had to collect a stool sample from a very runny bowel movement
