Its amazing what you can do with a stanley knife and some soy sauce.
I know people are sick of hearing about my health, but some people might want an update.
i was starting to think i was getting better until last night. i spent the entire night in pain witrh many trips to the bathroom. I even for the first time in my life threw up with blood in it.
So a night of no sleep and much dicomfort directed me to a doctor visit this morning. doc thinks its a reaction to the tablets i’m on.
seems so stupid to me, you take tablest to stop you having gastro problems and the tablets give you the same problem if not worse.
anyway have ti sit it out for 2 days until tablets are finnished but i have anti nausia tablets to help me aswell. then if not better on monday having a full blood test and stool test.
so there you go.
time to go and lay down and feel sorry for myself
as I was walking to work this morning in my own little world listening to the counting crows, a car tooted at me then pulled over next to me. A man shouted out to me so i went over to the car. He asked me if i knew how to get to tamworth from here, and due to my extensive knowledge of the new england area i was able to assist him. Off he went on his way.
Tamworth is about a 6 hour drive from hornsby, crazy normalyy you as for directios when you are 2 streets away from your destination but just cant find it.
anyway i kept walking along the footpath to work and then a few minutes later another car pulled over next to me and this time it was a man and his kid wanting to get to hornsby pool.
That was more like it! i told him and then off he drove too.
I think i might set up a booth on the side of the road, and give people directions.
Jenny and Isaw this movie tonight.
It was strange watching a film in black and white, i changed the cinema experience and it also wasnt in surround sound whihc also made it a bit strange. But it was a good strange.
I think george clooney is a clever man and i have loved him ever since 3 kings.
This movie isnt something you would go out and see for a laugh or to just relax in front of some mindless chick flick.
I struggled in some parts to understand what it was that was going on, and other times i was enthrawled.
Man they smoke so much in the 50′s.
I’ll give it 5 / 7
I herby annoucne that I am the official unofficial Australian of the year.
I pretty much deserve it for being so good looking and funny and creative and for my ongoing contribution to the Australian medical industry.
Today i decided i was really glad that i’m not a dog or a cat. becasue they lick their own bums and it’s really not a pleseant look our sound.
i know that this post really isnt very insporational or exciting but really i thought this today and i’m glad.
in other news, today marks the day of me and jenny being together for 1 year. boy oh boy what a fantabulous year. going to the chapel and we’re gonna get ma a a arried!

It seems that podcasting with howie and tom is in search of a new sponsorship deal.
While dosa club has been a great partner, they no longer have a website to direct our listeners to.
So the oppertunity to come on board as a sponsor is open, while i’m sure dosa club will remain a sponsor of the show it may not be the key sponsor any longer.
will the podcast stay on the air? Its up to you.
well about to start a course of new tablets. have to take three a day for a week then if i’m still sick after that i have to go back to the doctor and he’ll have to do tests and stuff.
its starting to get quite tedious, i would like to be better. oh how much i want to crack open a 600ml coke again and chow down on some food in the foodcourt or even just some other form of food that isnt plain bread or boiled rice.

but stay tuned on blogfeed for the news in the next few days i’m guessing.
well today was day 8 of this bout of bowel malfunction.
I think i may be on the mend, today my bowels feel like someone has hit me in the gut and its just the feeling of bruising,. whihc doesnt sound all that much like improvment but it is, before it felt like it was constantly bubbling away all day and night and at the same time like there was something pulling and tuggin on my intestines. so i’m quite content with the bruised feeling. so much so that i have eaten 5 pieces of plain toast today, my biggest day of eating since all this began.
and only 1 explosion this morning,
you poor people having to read about my malfunctioning body. maybe i can blog something interesting one day again.
day 7 of being sick.
well after spending the whole night awake due to an uncomfortable feeling in my bowels i got up about 9, threw up, then went to the doc. After the doc i came home, threw up and have spent the rest of the day laying down trying to get some sleep. i’m still waiting for that sleep……………….
i think its time to give up on shut eye and go get me some flat lemonade.
in my state of illness i have created an imix for your listening pleasure.
It is called “the sunburn soiree”
My doc said on friday that if it was all still going on monday to take some tablets that he perscribed me.
the thing is that the tablets scare me, please read the following side effects of the tablets.
Gastro-intestinal side effects include nausea, vomiting, anorexia, diarrhoea, metallic taste and abdominal pain.
Fasigyn may produce transient leucopenia. Other less frequently reported side-effects are headache, tiredness, furry tongue and dark urine.
Hypersensitivity reactions, occasionally severe, may occur less frequently in the form of skin rash, pruritis, urticaria and angioneurotic oedema.
Drugs of similar chemical structure, including Fasigyn have been associated with various neurological disturbances such as dizziness, vertigo, ataxia, peripheral neuropathy (paresthesia, sensory disturbances, hypesthesia)and rarely, convulsions.
If any abnormal neurological signs develop during Fasigyn therapy, the drug should be discontinued.
now tell me would you take them ?
I’m feeling quite a lot better tonight.
I havent had any trips to the toilet today for the unformed express.
And i have eaten some rice, i piece of dry toast and 2 cruckits.
I still have this slight pain / doscomfort in my bowel but thats probably normal.
so tomorrow its back to work for me.
well day 3 of being sick is almost done.
I have felt a bit better today only had to sit down a couple of times on the toilet.
But still rather weak,
jenny came and recued me and took me to her house for the afternoon, we sat around and watched a dvd then sat around some more and i had a peace of plain toast. It seems so far that his stayed in my body.
Seeing as my bowels seems to have ceased passing loose and unformed movements we decided to go see a movie.
I quite enjoyed this film, that enjoyment was probably partly due to the fact that i was out of the house and that my bowel wasnt moving. But aslo due to the fact it was a fun film in parts. Not the whole way through but in parts. I like a film taht has a bit of song and dance, just some of the songs went on a bit long and some of the scenes and conversations carried on way past their entertainment point.
It made me laugh, it made me bored.
I give it 4.5 / 7
and ooops we seemed to forget that we had allocated seating.
now i am at home eating some plain rice and sipping water, there is a bit of a pain in my bowel region but hopefuly its just hungry or someting.
well doc says i have gastroentiritis, which is nothing new to me, casued by either food poisioning ot a virus.
What is does is stips the coating on the inside of your bowels, so if you eat stuff and drink stuff it cant be absorbed properly and everything just shoots through. SO even drinking water just goes straight through. so i have to drink sips every 5 – 10 minutes sintead of just drinking a glass of water. that way with little sips there is more chance it will get absorbed into my body.
not a whole lot of fun, no eating until tomorrow and only if i feel up to it and if i do feel up to it just dry toast or boiled rice.
and if its still going by monday then there is some tablests to take that should flush out any nasties.
but for now its just rest and water and lemonade and stuff. he said i can have coke but to ater it down a bit. I dont think i’ll do watered down coke i’ll just have water and maybe someone nice can bring me some lemonade.
and that is the verdice. i’m so sleepy.
I gues casue of ibs all this stuff is a bot more likely and severe.
