I used to be scared of spiders, but then one set up shop in the corner of our bathroom, and I let him be, because he was catching the odd fly or mosquito.

Then one day a wasp got into the bathroom, and I found Colin cowering in fear behind a plant pot because the wasp had destroyed his web.

Now he's my best bro spider-bro, and I would do anything for him.

eyyy so im being tested for RA/PsA related interstitial lung disease. What a crock load of shit.  I feel like some funny fucker up there is just having a laugh at this point.

 

Also - today i VERY NEARLY ran over a dog, i had control of the situation and missed the poor fecker by mere inches (i literally saw him disappear under the view of my bonnet AS my car stopped) but straight after I had a massive panic attack, which has irritated the absolute shite out of my lungs and put me in even more pain. 

Oh and my GP put me on roidz a few weeks ago which REALLY HELPED, and now hes weaning me off them, and of course theyve stopped working.  Fuckssake.

I am so bloody annoyed.

the steroids tapering off caused a massive flare up.  GP upped my dose to higher than the initial dose, but it takes a few days to work.  Meanwhile my breathing was getting poorer and my pain worse.  So he sends me to hospital.   They did an xray and were able to identify inflammation.  they've given me anti bios. 

I'm kinda annoyed.. i dont personally believe i have a chest infection.  I dont have the death rattle/phelgm that comes with a typical chest infection for me. I hate taking anti bios unneccesarily because with a complex immune system disorder this shit has a limited lifespan before it stops working.  But ill be a good patient and take it. :blank:  Doctor is now currently refusing to let me stop taking the steroids.

I went into work today and got chastised by pretty much every colleague and my boss wanted to send me home.  But for me its better to be DOING something, ill sit at home and worry if i have to rest lol

my lovely wonderful derm nurse specialist got me on the cancellation list for a CT, so im going for that next week! maybe that will hold the answers... because i dunno im basically stuck on steroids for the rest of my life if they cant find an answer lol

Got evacuated from work because of a huge chemical fire a mile or two away.

In reality, we were probably fine, and my house where I evacuated to is probably closer to the fire than my work, but it was kind of exciting.

The view from my friend's front door:

They've been evacuated from their house and are staying with friends. We could see the smoke from here, several towns over.

Crazy stuff.

A huge spider started crawling across the sofa blanket between my wife and I.

Luckily, as I threw the blanket across the room, the giant spider landed in an empty mug and I was able to place a book on top.

I hate this time of year.

(seriously though, why do they actively seem to be trying to break COVID records instead of steering well clear of them?)

I called 999 on my neighbours last weekend, due to some horrendous screaming that came from next door. It awoke me from a nap after a Warhammer event which went on for a bit, you dismiss initially, thoughts ranging from "probably them playing a game" / "they've got the TV on a bit loud" / "Is this some weird sex shit?", which went on for about 5-10 minutes. It literally sounded like someone woman being raped (my wife thought it was a bloke with mental problems). The screams were that bad, along with some talking and some banging. I has recordings if anyone on the Facebook wants to hear it. Whilst I'm on the phone to the operator I nip into the spare room to see if I can hear anything better, and saw one of them sat in the garden outside.

Police came about 5-10 mins later, the screams still going. I spy them chatting outside with one of the neighbours, and they went in. The screams are still going, but slowly decreasing in intensity and frequency. About 30 mins later an ambulance shows up, and they bring out this chap, who was jerking a bit and they took him away and police left too. No explanation from the residents. I call the landlord just to check if there was any mental problems with his residents (new group of students this year) and sent him clips of the sounds. Later that day we got a handwritten letter from them mentioning one of them had has a seizure, and they had called an ambulance* but the police got there first.

Now, as someone who has epilepsy for the better part of 20 years, I know what one is like and my wife knows what I do when I black out. This wasn't it. For general seizure action, you may scream at the beginning and then go into shaky mode and chill**. Not scream in terror for 45 or so minutes. So the theory is some form of drug induced hallucination or something similar. I'm glad the dude is OK, but not something I wanna repeat. I sure as shit don't regret calling 999. 

 

 

* which I don't really believe as if a 999 operator heard those screams would an ambulance take nearly an hour to show up 

**variations apply, but none I could see have this effect.
