Fed up, to be honest, and scared.  There are some lovely nurses, though, and they're great about my phobia.

Still haven't had my scans.

I'm hating the 10pm injections in the tummy, and the blood  tests :(

 

Let's hope we don't have a repeat of the popcorn incident tonight

I'm hopefully going home this evening!  Bad news is that I apparently have clots in both lungs.  Good news is that they're only small ones.  My heart is showing signs of having been under stress due to the lung problem, so I've to take it easy.  I also have to have daily injections in my tummy for a while, and I'll be on Warfarin for about 6 months.

 

 

post #4233 of 9266

It's good that you're going home. Sorry to hear about the clots. :( Do you mind me asking what symptoms you've had? It's just that I get these palpitations and sharpish pains on my left, plus a constant dull pain as well both at the front and back. And of course now I'm panicing too. I also just found out that one of the mums in my son's class is going in for a mastectomy tomorrow as she has breast cancer. She's only about 32 and has a 5 year old and a 2 year old. So scary. :( No wonder I'm bl**dy depressed, hearing about all these scary news is not helping my peace of mind. 

 

Anyway, hope you are going home and you can rest better in your own bed. *hugs*

I'm home :)

 

Symptoms, and the reason I went to the doctor, were mainly shortness of breath on exertion (walking) which had got much worse over the past couple of weeks, and I suddenly found myself unable to walk very far without lots of puffing and panting, and my chest (central, just above the boobs) felt tighter at those times, like I imagine asthma might be, and also my diaphragm area, just under the ribcage, got a tight feeling, almost like someone was pulling it inwards.  I did get a dull pain through my back and front, roughly central ribcage at times, too.  I couldn't even get up to answer the phone without getting out of breath.  I was very aware of my heart beating at those times, too, and what I suppose you would call palpitations.  Oh, and I got a stitch in my right shoulder and my right side by my waist, too.

 

If you think you could possibly have the same, do get checked out by your doctor.  If you get clots in your lungs and they go untreated, it can be very serious.

post #4235 of 9266

Glad to hear you're home, and hope you feel better soon.

 

Luckily for me, your symptoms sound a lot worse than mine, I don't get out of breath much unless I'm hurrying, so I think I'm okay. I had a chest x-ray done last week, but I haven't seen my GP about it, and the 24 hour ECG was normal. I know some of my symptoms are also due to anxiety, so trying to get help for that too.

 

On the topic of make up, I've been going crazy with nail polish buying, I have bought so many lately. I don't even know where I'm going to put them all. Silly me. But I guess it's substituting make up as there haven't been anything new coming out since the beginning of the month, I've ony bought the EL powder and the Shiseido lipstick lately (well since Extra Dimension and Tres Cheek which was a big haul though, so it's not like I've been on a make up no buy, lol).

Good to hear they let you go home! I hate being in a hospital even if its just to visit someone :/

post #4237 of 9266

The 'Blush By 3' I won from Sleek finally arrived today.  It was postmarked 12th April - what on earth have the Post Office been doing with it all this time? 

 

It's the 'Lace' one, and the peachy colours are beautiful. 

 

 

post #4238 of 9266

Good news - you can now buy at Boots online using points to pay!

Presumably that's why the website was down the other day - not that I was trying to buy anything of course...

That's good news! Now all we need is Debenhams to follow...!

post #4241 of 9266

Is Lou OK, does anyone know? I've not seen her posting on here or Twitter

post #4242 of 9266

She posted an FOTD on Twitter yesterday. Maybe she's really busy at work?

Good news about Boots, although I don't think I have many points on my card right now. I would love it if Debenhams followed, but I'd already be happy if they'd at least converted more than 15 quid worth of points every month. I literally have about 200 quid's worth sitting there unused. :( Yet I can only use £30 right now. They did send me a £13 voucher with my credit card statement too, so I'll be saving them until the Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette comes out. It's up on HoF, but I might as well wait now and get it for free. :)

 

I've just seen the details of the Chanel summer collection on Temptalia and other than maybe the bronzers, I don't think I'll pick anything up. Which is good, because I want loads from Guerlain and a few things from Dior as well. Also don't think I'll be getting loads from Hey Sailor, I'm most excited about the lip pencils. Again, from Reel Sexy I want one lipstick. (I do want loads from Heavenly Creature, so might as well not get much from these anyway.)

 

Dawn, how are you feeling?

post #4243 of 9266

She must be alright then, and I must just have missed that Tweet (haven't been keeping up with it as much these past few days).

 

It seems rather crazy about Debenhams only converting £15 of points a month.  Do you then have a time limit in which to spend them?

 

I'm feeling a little better today - mostly relief, I think, as the District Nurse came round this morning to do my dalteparin injection, and decided to do the INR blood test first.  Luckily it was only a finger-prick test, not the other type, and my result came up as 2.4, which is right slap bang on target, so I didn't need the injection after all.  She's given the results to the practice nurse, who phoned me and told me I won't need any more injections, and just changed my dosage of warfarin.  I don't have to see anyone again until Monday, when I will have another finger-prick test just to try to get the right dosage of warfarin sorted out. 

 

It's got extremely windy here - sounds like big lorries rumbling down the road!  It was absolutely chucking it down earlier, too.  Makes me glad I don't have to go out in it lol

post #4244 of 9266

sorry ive been MIA lately, ive had a mega month at work, ive had a promotion and am moving to another Boots store to improve and run the pharmacy there by myself, it will just be me and a pharmacist, and i'll basically be doing everything by myself. I'm nervous to say the least! But its a step up and a step in the right direction of management. I'm also half way through some more pharmacy training so its made me a bit nervous to switch to a more challenging environment at the same time as trying to do my training.  But what's life with out a challenge eh? 

 

i havent even thought about the new collections, but i'm not very excited by chanel's summer collection, it seems boring.

 

hey sailor looks fun, i cant wait for that, but i really do not need any more make up right now!! i'm sure i'll get a couple things though, what is even out this month coming?? 

post #4245 of 9266

Congratulations on the promotion :)

 

I think we've got Hey Sailor, Reel Sexy and Lips and Tips (aka Fashion Sets) coming out next week.

 

I don't NEED any more makeup, but I think I'll be buying a few bits from each of these - after all, I think I need to treat myself.  I've got to be very selective, though, as I don't have much money.

 

 

post #4246 of 9266

Well I don't think any of us here NEED any more make up for the next 5 years, lol. Maybe the occasional make up remover and mascara, perhaps a bottle of foundation as well, but other than that, I'm pretty sure I'm set for the next 5 years. :D In fact for eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks, try next 10 years!

I don't think I have quite enough for 10 years, but I definitely have too much! Yesterday I learned something amusing... Once I finish my temporary job in the Netherlands, I will be moving back home to New Zealand. I have already sent 90% of my makeup back home, where my husband is currently living. I found out yesterday that he has put all of it into one suitcase (apparently it only just fits) which he is now using to prop up the television! (He has just moved into our new apartment so doesn't really have any furniture).

Not sure which horrifies me more, the fact that I have a whole suitcase of makeup, or that it's being used to prop up the telly! hmm.gif lol.gif

post #4248 of 9266

I have way more than enough makeup to fill a suitcase, or even 2  icon_eek.gif

 

I discovered this a couple of weeks ago when I started to try to organise my bedroom (something that I have had to stop since I can't breath to lift now, or even tackle the stairs very well) and put my various shoeboxes/MAC black boxes etc of makeup into 80litre plastic boxes as part of the sorting process.  I filled 2, and still have more to house!  I could probably fill another one of those 80litre boxes easily

 

I have way too much, yet I still want more.  I think I am addicted

Well I'm quite new to collecting makeup, and know that I'm addicted already - I want so much from Guerlain over the next month or so, but I know that I don't need it at all. To think I used to have about three lipsticks, two eyeshadow palettes and never bothered with foundation etc.  I've even got into blusher lately.  I hardly wore any makeup at all before I went back to work two years ago, now a 'no makeup' day involves at least tinted moisturiser, kohl liner, couple of eyeshadows, mascara and lip gloss!

 

Is there any cure for this?  Though I don't think I want one, as it's such FUN!  yahoo.gif

Congrats on the promotion! 

 

Chanel is one brand that I just can't skip! A part of me can't wait fpr the summer collection to come out but the other part of me knows I won't be able to afford anything I want not to mention I have no room for anymore makeup except maybe a few lippies!

^Hehe that's hilarious! Hmm I don't think I have enough makeup to fill a suitcase at all so that's kinda made me feel better about my ever growing stash...! 

post #4251 of 9266

I don't think my make up would fit into the largest suitcase we own, in fact I KNOW it wouldn't, in fact I'm pretty sure I have even more than Dawn (Rockin) by the sound of it. I have actually put two large bags (not suticases though!) full of back ups and/or powders I don't plan on using ever in the attic because it didn't fit in my cupboard anymore. That is the extent of my problem. Yet I still want more. Luckily for me I'm not too interested in the new Mac collections other than Heavenly Creatures (all the Fashion Sets lipglasses are blah) and only want lots from Guerlain as far as summer collections go, but in any case, I don't even need or have space to put any of those. 
 

post #4252 of 9266

I went shopping today and I didn't buy any make up, not even nail polish, lol! I would've, but they didn't have the Models Own Ibiza Mix and there was nothing new in TKMaxx. :D I did buy a make up bag, I don't know if you saw the kitty one on my blog, it's the same just bigger with a leopard on it, really nice and only 4 quid more expensive (but about twice the size!).

post #4253 of 9266

I can't wait until I'm able to go and browse in the shops again.  Isn't it this coming month that we get our House Of Fraser vouchers?  I think I have over £50 to come from that, so looking forward to spending it :)

Yeah, I have about 50 quid coming next month. smiles.gif Also I'll have 45 quid on my Debenhams beauty card and a £13 voucher.

Are you feeling better now?
post #4255 of 9266

I'm not feeling too bad, thanks.  I find I get tired during the day, and have to have a lie down on the sofa.  I also feel palpitations at times, but at least I can manage the stairs much easier now.  I seem to have trouble concentrating on anything for long, and struggle to think of the right words for things sometimes, but apparently that's to be expected since I haven't been getting enough oxygen for a while, and that should get better in time.  I had put it down to age lol.

 

Don't know what to spend my HoF money on.  I would use it to buy MAC, but after the delays they had in getting Shop Cook up and then not having everything, I don't really want to risk it.  I think Urban Decay or Benefit might get my money this time, or Estee Lauder have a beautiful lip gloss  coming out, if we get it here http://www.temptalia.com/estee-lauder-violet-rain-pure-color-sequin-finish-lip-gloss-review-photos-swatches.

post #4256 of 9266

Yes, I saw that gloss too and it's so beautiful! Not that I need any more glosses for about 5 years...

 

I just got the Guerlain summer eyeshadow quad in the post, bought it from eBay for £14.99 plus p&p, it's unboxed and doesn't even come with the velvet pouch, but it is brand new. I quickly photographed and swatched it, and decided to try it out quickly too. Although it feels weird wearing such summery colours in this weather. We're going to a circus this afternoon, but it's raining again, bleh. :(

 

Can you spend the HoF vouchers online as well as in store?

 

Glad you're feeling better. I can't shake off my bad throat, I've had it for about 10 days now. Ugh. And this weather is so depressing.

It's raining again here, too :(  Almost makes me glad I don't have to go out,

 

I don't NEED any more lipgloss either - I have way too much, but that colour is sooo pretty! 

 

I don't think it's possible to spend HoF vouchers online, but I think you can go in to a store and place an order from there.  Certainly there's a computer at the collections desk in ours, which is permanently set to their website and available for customers to use.

post #4258 of 9266

Not sure what to spend the free £5 beauty card club points that Debenhams sent us all. I think it expires tomorrow! My Debenhams doesn't have a MAC counter so I'll be stalking Urban Decay and Chanel today!

I didn't get one. ssad.gif Did it not come with the Daily Mail or something? I remember reading about that on FB.
post #4260 of 9266

It should have been automatically been added to your card on 16th April. I got an email about it. I just checked and it's valid until 13th May so maybe worth enquiring about?

The T&Cs are: To qualify for the free £5 reward on your Beauty club Card, your Card needed to have been registered on or before 30 March 2012 and used between 16 April 2011 and 30 March 2012.
