I've just spent 8 days in hospital with acute pancreatitis. I've had a mystery stomach problem for nearly 2 years, and have had semi regular attacks but, this is the first time it's hospitalised me.
3 or 4 days on morphine and fluids by i.v. with nil by mouth to allow my pancreas to heal.
Some of you you may know that I really hate needles, but I can safely say that I've come a long way towards getting over that particular phobia, my hands and wrists are covered in bruises from needles.
I haven't got a bad thing to say about my stay in hospital or my NHS experience, the Hospital and staff were brilliant all except one particular nurse who managed to cause distress to 3 patients within hours of coming on her shift. Which I can't get my head around, her attitude was thoughtless and lazy, almost deliberately so.
So, here I am back at home resting, I still haven't got my appitite back and I'm still quite weak. I tried a walk to the shops over the road yesterday and by the time i got back home, I looked and felt like I'd run a mile.

The first seven people to respond to this post will get something made by me.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- No requests-- it could be anything. It may be a mix CD. It may be a poem.
I may draw or paint something.
I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
The catch is that if you don't re-post this offer, the bargain is void!

This morning a cunt at work asked "Why are you so miserable all the time? She's dead, just get over it"
Colleagues Intervened before I did something he'd regret and got me sacked on the spot.

I would like to thank everyone who came along to Sam's Funeral and to the gathering afterwards.
The service was beautiful, all the more so for the many people who attended and I'm sure it would have moved Sam to tears to see you all there.
Sam loved her friends, remember that when you remember her.

This is NOT a Piss Up, this a chance for all of Sam's diverse friends to get together and share their thoughts and feelings about Sam. I hope to see you there.
