That is the amount of days of my life, including 12 leap years. Yes, 50 years today.Thank you for the birthday wishes you lot who sent them.

Someone was mentioning the signs of ageing they experience in the their 50's. Well, i don't have to worry about that. I have been knackered for years so I don't notice that. I do notice that I look more and more like Keanu Reeves as time passes. (Did I ever mention my body dysmorhpia? I used to look in the mirror and see the Hunchback of Notre Dame but now that I have got so well, I see Keanu .) Seriously, body dysmorphia was a serious issue and now isn't so much. I will write about it another time.

I am feeling better. I spoke with the doc yesterday and have started on a course of anti -inflammatories. Diclofenac for me. They don't upset my gut. Ibuprofen does. In cas eyou do not know this, one needs to take a course of anit inflammatories just like antibiotics. No good just popping them every now and then. Also they recently discovered they are not good for kidneys or hearts and as I have CHD, I have to be careful so can't have them for more than 2 weeks every few months. I take them when it gets really bad. I was able to get out of bed with trouble this morning.

Later I am going to Tuesday day time dog club. I have been asked to go. I think something is up to do with my birthday.

I bought 3 new pairs of Docs! Outrageous they are too. Two pairs are coming form the USA so that was a bit of a hefty bill but they are worth it. I hope so anyway! One pair is coming form here and a pair I have been hunting for for ages. Not only have I finally found them but at half the normal price!
