Things you want to say but can't

Posted: 19/01/2015 at 21:57

If I kept quiet I could maintain an air of mystery and intrigue... But in truth, my OH has met her a couple of times through work and knowing how much I liked her got her to write a card to me. She is as cheeky in real life as her persona on TV. Apparently. Maybe one day...

Hi Muttley - do you like my card?

Hi Dan - try the health tab.

Body Fat

Posted: 15/01/2015 at 12:12

BecksF - my body fat normally hovers around the 20% mark (if you can believe the scales) but when I was marathon training it dropped to about 16%. My weight went down just a few pounds.

Angry, White and proud! On tv tonight..,

I'm white, occasionally let off some steam and have been proud of some of my achievements. But I'm definitely not going to be on tv tonight!

Is next year going to be a good one for you?

I had loads of tests from the GP and two consultants but nothing untoward found (which is good in a way but not particularly helpful). In desperation I sought advice from a nutritionist who specialises in fatigue issues and have had some considerable success but just can't seem to get over the final hurdle. An adrenal stress test highlighted some problems and a blood test showed my testosterone to be off the scale (at the bottom end). So I've been working on them and they have made me feel much better - maybe continuing down this path will solve it but it is really testing my patience! First thing he treated me for though was a gut bacteria overgrowth/infection - that took about a year to sort but really helped and is a common problem.

If I was to offer any advice I'd say start to learn your energy limits for the day and never exceed them - all activity (including mental and even watching the telly) uses up your finite resource and any excess in one day will cause problems the next. You may wish to google Dr Myhill whose website has loads of good advice. When you do feel well enough to exercise take it really easy, build up very slowly. I should try and take that on board!!

Hope you feel better soon. If you need to bend an ear on occasion or just let off some steam to someone who may understand what you are going through feel free to pm me.

All the best, Peter.

No change really, thanks. Beginning to wonder if I need to find a new hobby! I had high cholesterol at my last check which was particularly annoying as it was really good before but I think it was just I got into bad habits with lots of butter and cheese! It was jolly nice at the time mind...

Hope you get some joy soon, any ideas as to what might be causing your problem? Did it start as post virus, high stress or just out of the blue? Feel free to ignore me if you don't want to discuss with a stranger, entirely understandable!

Cinders wrote (see)

Hoping that 2015 will be a good one for almost identical reasons to PE above.  Having blood tests in a week and hope they find the cause of the fatigue and then sort it and start running again 

How did you get on Cinders, good news I hope?

Cars - Astra Teintop or Vw Eos reviews

I'd love to see a picture of your dog with her hair being blown about in the car! Having said that I realise getting a picture could be tricky and dangerous!

Glad you are enjoying it. A colleague has the same car with a petrol engine and is very happy, gets late 30s mpg which I think is pretty good given it's a heavy car.

Your doing what?

I've just fixed a bathroom tap. Not particularly weird. A little odd though was the box it came in. The part was about 2" long and 1.5" in diameter. The box was roughly 18" x 18" x 24"!!

What's with the massive video advert halfway down the threads?

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!
