Sick

New Labour have finally made me ill. I think it's an ulcer.

Get some ranitidine, marketed as Zantac. It works.

Then don your wide brimmed hat, get your cauldron out of the cupboard and cast a spell to make all the MPs disappear please? If you kill Gordon Brown there'll just be another arsehole to take his place, like James Purnell.

Many thanks.

take care

lilith said...

Thank you Pip and Nick. Arrrgh. I think Baroness Scotland's weasel words and Brown's Statesman award have finished me off.

Trubes said...

Oh dear lils. Are you serious? If so, ask your GP for Lansoprazole. It is much more effective than ranitidine and safer to take, with minimal side effects.
I take it for damage done to my digestive system by anti- rheumatoid drugs.

Trubes, I don't think it is an ulcer...yet. No blood. Just LOTS of pain, and no energy. Uber strength gaviscon is helping a bit, as is sleeping sitting up and not eating. I hate doctors. Last time I went with a kidney stone I got sent for a colonoscopy..... they're bastards. He must have thought "call us up out of hours would you, you bitch? I will show you..."

You poor young thing Lils!

Does this affect your Calfy helping escape?

Have to confess that we just bellow at the screen everytime a Nuliar appears squealing garbage! JRT flies out of the room at the sound of some serious ranting, and she's now programmed to bite 'Gordon B.Ruin the country' and all his pathetic bunch of losers....

Get better soon eh?

idle said...

Well said trubes. Lansoprazole is a godsend to all those who drink too much champagne and white wine (red is a better bet) and eat too much rich food.

It has worked well enough for me to take a couple of pills a week instead of the prescribed one a day. Mind you, those sporting weeks in the Highlands take their toll and it is wise to revert to daily dosage.....

idle said...

ps Get well soon lil.

Might it be nerves?

lilith said...

Scrobs, I do hope not. We are off next Tuesday and I don't think I could stand to be unwell until then and beyond. Pig growls when we rant about Brown. These dogs know a thing or two.


Acute neurasthenia. Hmm. It could be nervous exhaustion Idle, yes. I didn't see it coming if that is what it is. (It certainly isn't an excess of champagne, sadly) Slow improvement. I am terribly impatient with my own illness and can't really afford to take the time off when I am away for the next two weeks...damn damn. Nurse, pass the Chlorpromazine!

I'm feeling, light headed, etherial ... sedated ALL the time.

The mellowness of my blog of late is not down to the fact that things have got better in Britain but because the senses are so assailed, by ridiculousness which has gone beyond the pale, that it has made one completely numb.

I don't care anymore.

It's a good way to feel, Lilith.

lilith said...

Cripes. Everyone round to Kev's quick...he's slipping away fast. Kev? Kev? Speak to me! Don't make me take off my sunglasses!

What have they done?

fleetofworlds said...

Sorry you're feeling under the weather, Lils. I find imagining Gordon Brown being mauled by a rabid polecat most therapeutic. Try it.

Philipa said...

Sorry to hear you really are not well, Lils. Hope it clears up v.soon. And I hope it's nothing serious and you're just a bit stressed/bunged up.

Trubes - glad you put that comment; I've been taking Ranitidine for about 20 years now. Oops! It does work, you see.

Philipa said...

PS: if Kev starts to laugh uncontrollably, and manically, you will tell us won't you?

Nomad said...

Get yourself checked before you go to Syria. Severe indigestion can be a symptom of any number of things and self diagnosis is not really a very good idea.

Hope you recover swiftly. We need our daily dose of sanity round here.

Pretty much any of the medications mentioned earlier will help.

These days, doctors treat excess stomach acid and "normal" ulcers with much the same medicine and in 9 out 10 cases, it works.

Get well soon!

Trubes said...

Pippy: You are correct in saying that ranitidine works but it has unpleasant side effects for some. I had a nasty itchy rash and severe headaches when I took it.
Although, it did shift the acid reflux.
BTW... I've posted a reply to you, on Scroblenes site on the students loan fiasco. Just thought I'd clarify a couple of points.


Lils; You really must go and see your GP if you are still suffering.
Take care.x
(Old Mother Trubes has spoken)!

Philipa said...

Thanx Trubes, me too.

electro-kevin said...

Hnn, Hnnnnn, ha ha ... ha-ha-ha !

Neeeyahahahahaha !!!!

[Too late]

lilith said...

Kev has slipped through the net, folks ;-)

I bought this medicine called Zantac, since I have this stomach ulcer, it relieves my stomach acidity. No adverse effects, I did follow the right directions and dose and what do you know it did a great job. Two thumbs up for this. I got the med online the site is www.medsheaven.com.
