Not Feeling Too Good

Postby Mick F » 31 Jan 2007, 3:15pm

I've still got Man Flu, feeling rotten and snotty, and today I went down the Doc's. He says that I have Sinusitis. He's given me some antibiotics. A week's course.

NO ALCOHOL!

How'm I gonna manage?





Anyway, I've just cheered myself up with a nice order from Wiggle.

10% discount coz it's January. AND further £10 off if you order more than £100 worth and input a voucher number. (that they give you!)

I've saved £22!

I feel better already.

I bought more bits for my project, My Bright Red Mixte.

I've built the front wheel (see other posts) and now it's the turn for the back.

Trouble is, I'm fitting Shimano (spits rudely!) Nexus 8sp. The front with Roller Brake was cheap enough, but the rear hub is NOT cheap. Also need sprocket and fitting kit.

I'm doing all this in slow-mo as funds allow ....

Careful Mick, it's the first step on the primrose path etc. Next thing we know, you'll be on the box explaining how you ran up a thirty grand credit card bill because spending was your only pleasure when feeling low! "I just had to have the Gucci lime green and gold lame saddle bag with matching toe straps and bar tape. They were in a sale, reduced by 20%, only cost £3,000..."

Still, you have my sympathy, especially for the sinusitis and the prohibition!

R2 is right about the dairy products Mick - I used to suffer terribly with sinus infections - I tried all the usual stuff, anti biotics, decongestants bla bla and then read an article on the internet - if I can find it I'll pass it on - regarding the problem. I changed to skimmed milk and cut down on cheese (use to eat a lot of that) and I use soft marg now instead of butter. I still have the odd bout of trouble but it's nowhere near as bad and far less frequent.
After a couple of days with skimmed milk you won't know the difference - not until someone gives you the other kind and then you find out how foul the full fat stuff really is.
Take care

Thanks Dai, good info.

Just been chatting to Mrs Mick F, we/I don't use too much in the way of dairy products.

We do have butter on toast for breakfast, but Flora on sarnies for lunch and stuff. We don't eat cereal, and it's semi skimmed in tea and coffee. Although we eat cheese, it's not every day.

But I must say, the coffee I've just had did taste decidedly "nasal'! (and don't say I should change my brand!)

Antibiotics, Doxycycline, are working.
