Monday 21st October - Huge Text Blog

I'm really feeling down today, lower than low, so down in the dumps I don't even know if I can go up from here.

Woke up with the kind of aches and pains that are just everywhere. No matter what I do, I feel it no matter what direction I try to move.

I am fed up of being on medication, fed up on injecting myself for my diabetis and every two weeks for the injection for my back. That one hurts like hell, especially if I get it in the wrong area... and it bleeds some time.

Fed up of taking tablets, fed up of the patches I am on, feeling sick after putting a new one on.

I used to be active, used to like going for walks. I just want to be able to do things again, try to live a life. Get out and about and enjoy getting fresh air and meeting up with friends.

I want to be able to do voluntary work again, I really enjoyed doing my community radio show.

Waking up in the mornings not being able to get up and out of bed is annoying the hell out of me. Being restricted in moving about, being trapped in my flat because I can't get down the stairs and out of the block.

I'm on the waiting list to see the spinal team at the hospital and other departments.

I have doubts about things in my mind, I forget things, I drop things and break things. My sleep is all over the place, can't seem to get in to a routine.

Having a walking stick, while it is supposed to make life easier, makes life more difficult and a pain. Trying to do simple things with it become mamouth tasks, and some impossible.

My enjoyment of life out of 10 is at most a 2, sometimes not even a 1!. To say I am fed up is an understatement, a massive understatement.

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament.
At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back.
UK regions such as Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the report, by a network association of European regions.
This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys. These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding.
The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2: #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter a #NorwegianStyleBrexit
If we crash out with

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems.

The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK.

David Cameron is to stand down (....no real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship.

One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today 'We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week.
We need to make sure the …

Car Battery Problem

Went out to start the car the other day and discovered the battery was flat. Had the break down out, the jump started  the car with no problem (so that ruled out the starter motor and solenoid). I put a multi meter on it and it was putting close to 14.7v in (so not alternator)

I sat with car running to put charge in the  battery. I disconnected the negative lead, checked what the battery was holding 12.85v. The breakdown person said to perform a parasitic draw test, so I did that and found no problem.
Was told to leave negative lead disconnected, the battery should hold its charge with that lead disconnected. Went out the following morning and it had lost charge again, it had dropped down to 12.08v. Just managed to start the car, went for a longish drive. I then disconnected the positive as well, just in case. This morning it was at 12.42v
Took the battery to Euro Car Parts for them to put it on a drop test. Had replacement battery.
This is a useful guide:
12.65V - 100% good 12.45V -…
