 How anyone could sleep with a radio on defeats me. I can't even have a clock ticking within earshot...but each to their own.  

 

Just to demonstrate how different people react in different ways......I've found that having a radio on with 'Snooze'  mode is an effective way to get to sleep. The radio switches itself off after 20-40-60 minutes, but I will be asleep before that happens.

 

On many occasions I've fallen asleep quickly with the radio still on in the background, and then woken up again when the radio went OFF. It was the silence which woke me up.

Being the newbie I am to N.S. I couldn't work out how to reach out to Physical Perfection to tell him to get on with life as you never know what tomorrow will bring. Obviously at the moment time

Don't think I've posted on this thread before but maybe being admitted to Stoke hospital with a heart attack on Monday justifies it  No big deal really and not as dramatic as it sounds. Admitted

As I said earlier, my father had tinnitus for many years. It took the form, he said, of a constant pitched note in each ear. However, the note was a different pitch in each ear. Obviously, I couldn't hear what he was being forced to listen to but depending on the interval between the notes (in musical terms) it could have been pleasant if harmonious or unpleasant if dissonant. It tried his patience very much and there was very little anyone could do to help.

Apart from the attacks of tinnitus, which, fortunately are not too often, the brain brushes the usual noise away unless I think about it. A researcher was quite intrigued when I said that I often listen to the tinnitus just like listening to music. A range of notes, intensity and timing. It's like celestial music and I often get lost in it. Can be quite pleasant sometimes. Pity that I am not a composer or I could write something quite original.

Haven't got Face book , is Foot note any good ?

Talking of ailments , i remember one mothers day  ,we took our dear old mam out for lunch, she wasn't too  brilliant on her feet so we put her in a wheelchair, it might of well been a wheelbarrow as to the red faces she caused  us ,

We were trying to get her into the pub with no ramp , the bar staff helped us in and seated us at a table , where my mam got out the wheelchair briskly as you like ,  and said im am going to the ladies , everyone was embarrassed after all the huffing and puffing trying to get the chair into the pub doorway  !

I’ve been under the knife today.  A while ago a doctor friend noticed a ‘thing’ near my eye.  It looked like a tiny little blister and I’d had it for a long time but it wasn’t bothering me so I’d done nothing about it.  He suggested I get it looked at and recommended a Dermatologist colleague, so I went to see this man privately at The Park Hospital.  Turned out it was a nodal basal cell carcinoma and he said I could leave it and it may not cause a problem, or I could leave it and it might grow behind my eye and I’d lose my eye, or he could remove it by Moh surgery.  Well it was a no-brainier,  so today I was in a clinic in Oxford ( he doesn’t operate in Nottingham) at 8am getting sorted under local anaesthetic. The jab was the only uncomfortable bit and I felt absolutely nothing as the surgeon carefully took away the offending BCC and put tiny stitches in.  I’m now going into hibernation because I’ve got a really big black eye and can’t  use any camouflage until the stitches are removed in a week’s time.

My father had a couple of those removed in the 1980s at the City Hospital. Again, very near his left eye and he was kept in for a week! The biopsy found they were malignant. His time spent in the tropics during naval service during the war was thought to be responsible. The sun did not suit my very fair-skinned, dark-haired father and it doesn't suit me for the same reason.

 

Swift recovery, Lizzie.
