In My Mind... Health and Covid 🤯

 So here's a blog update, long time since a readable text one that I thought I better had.

A lot of talk has been going around on the upcoming vaccine. Due to my health (on regular injection for my back which lowers my immune system), I am prone to catching things and ending up in hospital, as long as the vaccine has been tested I will have it, I'm not sure my body would cope with Covid, the damage it can do internally.

My body barely got over pneumonia, my lungs never fully recovered. 

The injection for my back lowers my immune system, and it don't even make things better, it prevents it getting worse, but it won't get better. They won't even attempt an operation as I'm not bad enough. I am stuck in an agonising rut, with no view of getting out of it.

Same goes with my neck, and a trapped nerve. I can be in agony with it on and off. When it starts I am in great pain and also get numbness, right down the arm and around the upper back, neck and shoulder areas. It can last from 10 mins to over 10 hours. Yet because its not constant its not.bad enough.

My back problem is causing problems elsewhere too. My left leg is in pain. My hip and knee is really causing huge mobility problems. Needing to use a walking aid to get through the day, to try to get out and.about.

I have realised I need to try to exercise, try to walk. I put my self through great pain trying to do it. I'm either doing good or being stupid landing my self in agony. With doing this, I also give my lungs a battering, needing my inhaler all the time.

Trying to be independent is either doing me a bit of good, or ruining me, not sure which.

And now, as mentioned, there is Covid, which is making me live life trapped, getting agitated with stupid people that are not following the rules. It really is a horrid time to be 'living', wrong word, lets go with 'trying to exist'

Covid and my health falling in to nowhere mans land in the system of the NHS machine, just because I am not bad enough for operations, yet am too bad to do things. I want to work, but look what is happening around the UK, company lay-offs, more able bodied people that will be taken on for any job than my self. It is not looking good for my health or the UK as a whole.

UPDATE 7th October 2020: 

I been sleeping way too much, I am sure it is due to damp and cloudy, dismal days causing it, lack of sunshine peaking out from behind the clouds? 

Little Smokie has been keeping an eye on me, demanding me to play... Bless him, my cute little sweetie.  

I am sure my coping mechanism to deal with the sh## this world is throwing at us is my pillow and duvet? talking to people seems to not be cutting it right now, as we are all going through it and it seems pointless right now.

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 ( 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 ne

Had first part of my vaccine - edited 14th March

So, Saturday I had the first part of the Covid vaccine . I had the Oxford AstraZeneca one. Don't get me wrong, I am over joyed to have been called up for it, but the side effects since are not too good, but as people keep telling me, "it's a sign it is working", geee, thanks for that! Before I go any further I want to say a massive thank you to AstraZeneca and also the University of Oxford, and the Swansea Bay NHS health board for getting this out. During yesterday afternoon my arm started hurting and then I started feeling as if I had a head cold coming on. Later in the evening my mind got a bit foggy. Day two since first part of vaccine jab,  I was woken at about 5am this morning. Feeling worse,  , woke up in a pool of sweat, and somehow managed to squash my pillow up and out of its pillowcase in the night. The sweat I could have done without, it was horrible waking up to that, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, waking up in sweat just made me have to get up s

#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 rep ort, 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
