Not entirely certain what this machine does. But I just know that wearing it for 24 hours will result in Dr lecturers 

 

Holter monitor 

 

I wore something similar, made by a company called Zio. It monitors your heart rate and looks for arrhythmias. If you only have to wear it for 24 hours, rejoice. I wore mine for two weeks, by the end of which my skin was going nuts from the adhesive, and I wanted to chew off my left pec.

No results for that yet 

 

Had stress EchoCardioGram Friday 

 

Followed by cardiologist going old school with a stethoscope 

 

He referred me for a proper EchoCardioGram. Said that I have a heart murmur. Wrote these clinical notes 

 

I see GP Tuesday. And hopefully he can explain it, without too many lectures on lifestyle

It could be worse. You could have had a heart mutter, which over time and under adverse circumstances could progress into a heart grumble and then to a heart gripe.

I do hope they figure it out for you.

I used the word "promulgate" in a sentence. I'm so fucking awesome.

That depends entirely on how you used it. "I promulgated into the loo" would make no sense, and thus earn you no fuckingawesomeness. Promulgating the notion that using a complex term makes one appear erudite is more likely to have the desired effect.

As you can see from my frankly superb illustration. 🧐

All good. Apparently no big deal on the murmur, or the palpitations etc 

 

Ideally would not be there. But no drama

I often think that American accents sound exhausting 

 

Surely they don't speak like that by default 

 

There was an American woman in a Cafe I attended recently. I just sort of watched and listened, wondering if she gets home to hubby and properly says "Sgarn on cunt?" in a normal voice

Chap Hop.

I think he's under somewhat of a misconception.

chap (n.)

1570s, "customer," short for obsolete chapman in its secondary sense "purchaser, trader" (also see cheap). Colloquial familiar sense of "lad, fellow, man or boy" is first attested 1716, usually with a qualifying adjective. Compare slang (tough) customer and German Kunde "customer, purchaser," colloquially "fellow."

Here, he seems to use in the same way as people nowadays say "like a sir."

I mean to say, what-what? 🧐

Irony is a needle phobic nurse 

 

Have just finished a chat with nurse sister. That yes, suspected heart attack is call 000 ASAP. And you won't know for sure that you need an IV drip until they do tests. They might just give back the valium that they took away 

 

😂🤣

do i win cookies or something?

Congratulations.  My mum was telling me about this the other day on FaceTime. Almost all of my family are around Melbourne. I fled to Queensland decades ago, as cold is pain for me. At the risk of speaking too soon, we have barely been impacted by the whole covid goings on, although it probably helps that we are a houseful of Aspies, and legal social distancing, and actually being told we can stay at home (and not have to make excuses) has been heaven.  My Pdoc did talk me into getting the vaccine, so now I probably have thousands of nanobots running around my body (joking).  For the Americans, I think fleeing to Florida would be the weather equivalent.

How can you worry about covid when every three months a person is torn to pieces by a crocodile in North Queensland? Hoping you get the Bob Katter reference. Not that our politicians in merry old England aren't bat shit insane too. Best Australian impression.

I'm not mocking. Stereotypes are funny but they aren't true. I'm always curious about what the stereotypes about English people are. Bowler hats and shit?

It's no better here. When Hurricane Ida blew threw, a man in New Orleans was eaten by an alligator.

And moving to Florida isn't a bad notion if you don't mind living in a COVID-infested hothouse with a raving lunatic governor. And more alligators.

Apropos of Random Thoughts, I was wondering why they're called alligators. How, after all, does one alligate? It seems that to alligate (from Latin alligatus, to bind, compare ligature), is to connect or bind things things together; yet this is not what alligators do. Indeed, they do much the opposite. Their name, instead, comes from Spanish el legato, the lizard, stemming likely from Latin lacerta (lizard) > el legato (the lizard) > alligator (terrifying crocodilian reptile archosaurs much more closely related to birds than to lizards). They do not bind, but tear things asunder in spectacular primaeval fashion. I think it's fascinating that two words so close in structure can signify opposite concepts.

Stereotypes aren't necessarily false - indeed, almost all stereotypes are based in observation of real phenomena - but what makes them undesirable is that they become illogically extrapolated and then applied to classes of people rather than to individuals who may actually exhibit the traits in question. Are people from Appalachia all ignorant, inbreeding hicks with missing teeth? Of course not. But the general educational level is below the national average, the population is not genetically diverse, and medical and dental care are both harder to access in rural areas than they are in more populated areas. I myself am currently missing a front tooth as I got an implant and have to heal until January before they can install the actual replacement tooth. I think any stereotype that can actually be applied is best thought of as the exception that proves the rule that people are individuals worthy of being considered on their own merits.

One of Mum's home helpers had a client test positive. So we had to get tested and quarantine until results came back 

 

I can go buy food now that the results are good. And get out in the sunshine that disappeared yesterday when we got hit with rain off the southern Ocean 

 

So, that's good

      Lately I've been finding myself believing that there are kangaroos and camels in the backyard but later recognize them as deer. It makes no sense because neither kangaroo nor camel are native to my country. 

      Additionally, I've been having issues with thinking I'm speaking with people and then when I ask them what we were just talking about, they either say we haven't talked about anything for a while or that we were talking about something completely unrelated to what I thought the conversation was. 

      Any ideas of what the Hell might be going on here? I've never had something like this happen persistently up until a few months ago but now it's really becoming a concern. I start seeing a new psychiatrist on the 15th of March, and will bring all of this up, but I kind of wonder if anyone can give me a glimmer of insight of what might be happening here.

      Heyyy... I was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. I hear voices, have obsessive/negative thoughts (possibly intrusive), have thought broadcasting, and mood swings. As of now I am on abilify-15mg, rexulti-4mg, and lexapro-20mg. I'm seeing a pdoc as well as a therapist. Though, it's really hard to keep my appointments with my therapist due to my social phobia. I keep thinking people can hear my thoughts and think of me as 'disgusting.' I even sometimes think my family & friends hear me. It's getting so hard to deal with... I think about suicide a lot... but I know deep down that it's not the only option and it is very final. There is help for me!!! 
      Anyone else going through this crappy stuff??? What medications are you on? How do you deal? What has helped you - past and present? How long have you dealt with this? 
      Feel free to add any additional information about what you are going through... I am also here to help anyone going through this because I know how hard it can get... believe me. Sometimes I am better at offering advice rather than taking my own. However, please seek help from a professional if you feel you are at your wits end.

      Hello everyone. I find lately I've been getting random moments of panic attacks, suddenly feeling overwhelmed. Seemingly caused by the most innocuous things. Just today it was windy and rainy off and on at the dog park where I take my dog scraps. it was seemingly going fine till one of the tent poles started creeking and popping which scared scrapsy to death so we decided to hang back in the parking lot over viewing the lake and I could feel it coming on so I rushed home and end up curling into a ball on the chair trying the relaxation response while repeating words to lift me up, I don't know whether it helped or not I'm kinda still dealing with the fallout. I was just wondering if anyone gets random episodes like that,sorry if it's a dumb post I just don't know much about any of my conditions.

      i don't want to puncture pictures a billion times with thumbtacks plus my nephew sometimes pulls things down from my board and i don't want thumbtacks flying everywhere.
      any ideas? i don't know if sticky tack will work.. but it seems unlikely.
