Just come back from the Dr's following my last blood test which is still normal so the underactive thryoid things stay at they are for the foreseeable future.

However, Dr looked further into my fatigue and looked at the bigger picture: diagnosed with ME at 19, feeling like I've had little sleep when I wake, a lot of stresses over the last few years in my life prior to Will, bouts of depression, an op a few years ago following a month or so of pain & dr/Hosp telling me there was nothing wrong when there clearly was. I have now also been diagnosed with having ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome again. Dr is going to refer me to a clinic in Derby.

That's another piece of my health jigsaw in place after a few years of not knowing what was to blame. It's also another big F U to ATOS who are convinced there is nothing wrong with me despite 60 year olds having more energy than me. I just wish there was a magical cure though as I really want to be able to work the 9-5 again earning decent money.
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm quite happy with it

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME is a horrific illness. My friend's got it; if she struggles out to seee people then she could be laid up in bed for days. :( Hope you get well soon.

Haha, awesome.
Looking at their line-up, they do loads of awesome shit.
Arnie vs Stallone marathon, Nightmare on Elm Street marathon..
The other night they did a beer and pizza club with a screening of Ninja Turtles 2 - each ticket came with a free beer and slice of pizza.

Why can't cool shit like this happen in Peterborough :(

I've made back the £25k or so I spent on my course (with the extras - commuting etc) from the shares in my trust account doing so well, so I have the same amount of money I started with :D

What makes the Green party "extreme idiot"?


Maybe he meant their policies or association to?
You're guaranteed with those fringe parties that they have at least one ludicrous policy like "no killing of crabs on a Thursday" or summat ;)



Still, I wouldn't really put BNP and Green in the same bracket really...
