What a day!

Woke up really wanting to take a leak, for the first time since my catheter was put in.

Nothing going into catheter.

Weekend, so harder to get housecall, so rising discomfort and anxiety until about an hour ago.

Slowly getting over it all now, and have brand new catheter in.

Yesterday largely taken over by after effects of giant crap.

So one way or another excretion taking over my life.

Time for a bit of a relax before getting back to why crosswords provide a better line on a theory of knowledge than philosophy :evil:

No rhyme or reason for it but felt too ill to put computer on yesterday. For the first time morphine didn't help much.

Didn't eat or drink much either, and that was forced.

Today, though, back to something like normality. Feeling stiff and weak. To the point that getting out of bath a struggle.

So sorry for absence. Maybe more today if I get my mind back on track.

Following David's untimely death on 27h February I am moving this thread to Secular Lifestyles & Issues where it will be visible to non-members.
