Watching Match of the Day in bed

It's been one of those days I had a slow start this morning, Heather was busy taking birthday wishes on the phone and I was caught napping when I fell back to sleep. Heather was on her mobile and I jumped out of my skin when another well wisher called the house phone. That's twice this week the phone has disturbed my sleep but I managed to avoid biting my tongue this morning, I am still smarting from the pain that was caused as I was caught napping in the wheelchair earlier in the week.
Heather has been in and out through the day and despite trying I never managed to get to sleep again! Now I am in bed watching MOTD and all I want to do is close my eyes and join the world of nod. So night I am signing off I know the scores of the remaining matches.

Heartburn and Acid Reflux

Yep I am laying here in bed reliving the food I ate earlier. Tomorrow is Heathers Birthday and this evening we had Chinese for Dinner. Nothing exceptionally spicy but boy am I paying for it now. I suffer with heartburn and reflux but tonight's is painful. I always have suffered as do my brother's and sister. Dad was always sucking Rennies so I think it is safe to say it runs in the family. I have prescription medication every day and also use Peptac which is extremely effective. I used to take Gaviscon on prescription and one day got a telephone call from our GP saying Peptac is the same but much less expensive. Ever since I have used Peptac. Gaviscon is slightly sweeter and better tasting but for that you pay about nine pounds for a 600ml bottle Peptac is around three pound for a 500ml bottle. Which means about six quid more. Now I don't have to many spare six quids to waste, in fact I try not to waste money full stop. So if like me you suffer with indigestion and heartburn save your money by changing brands.

I feel armour plated but not in a nice way

It was last Friday that I had the drama with my catheter and here I am on Tuesday and I feel awful. It's like I have an invisible coating just under my skin. Stopping me from functioning properly. Maybe I am developing an armour plate and will be a real live X Man......if only, I can't do two steps let alone repel uranium bullets and as for Xray vision I doubt my Specsaver glasses can pull off tricks like that.
I actually feel as if this armour plate is keeping me from falling apart. My brain won't function on anything for longer than a few minutes. I tried reading this afternoon it did not go well. I gave up halfway down the page having not understood what I had read and I did try I re-read it a couple of times. Answering the phone is difficult I just can't get any enthusiasm to great the caller and whilst I am desperate for the conversation I just fail a couple of minutes in and they ring off. I eagerly wake each morning thinking I will be back to how I was pre Friday and so far I am disappointed.
It seems like that I am moaning but when a post like this takes half an evening to complete maybe I am past being able to moan. No one cares anyhow so why waste the energy I could just sit here and stare at the wall. Sorted that's what I will do sit here stare at the wall and wait for my X-Men talents to take hold , I just checked and the Xray missions not working. Ah well maybe tomorrow!
