If you are making unsolicited calls door-to-door, you will do yourself no favours by:
1. Ringing the bell umpteen times and then practically hammering the door down.
2. When the irate householder (I got there as quickly as I could!) points out how annoying this is, addressing her as "sweetheart". I don't mind usually, but not from someone who's just really annoyed me!

Gah :banghead: .

When you're cleaning the china cabinet and have furniture polish and glass cleaner side by side, make sure you pick up the right one so that you don't spray the glass with furniture polish and then wonder why the paper towel with which you've wiped it off is covered in a yellowish, greasy looking substance.

(I seem to contribute more than my fair share to this thread!)

I have been taking a drug called Naprosyn or Naproxen for years for arthritis. for the past year, I have been feeling gradually worse and worse. Permanently tired, weak, regular stomach upsets, inability to complete anything.

i happened to read the information leaflet from a pack of Naproxen. several of the symptoms were just what I was getting. So yesterday I stopped taking them.

I'm starting to feel better already, at least, not so shaky and no ringing in my ears.

Please, read your drug information leaflets carefully, so you don't get to be as feeble as I became.

Sorry to hear about your worsening symptoms Jennie.

The same happened to me over the past few weeks/months, gradually, so that I didn't really realise what was happening.

Until I had such a major flare-up of pain in joints all over the body two weekends ago that I took myself to a local hospital. Where they diagnosed and treated me for a urine infection I had no clue I had, and must have had for a while.

To my utter amazement, not only have the massive joint pains gone, so has most of the "normal" pain in my arthritic knees and I can move with relative ease after a very long time indeed.

So moral two is don't just read the leaflets in your medication, but check for infections that you are unaware of having!

Glad to hear two such positivie outcomes, but I would caution against anyone just stopping taking a long term medication without the guidance of their GP (or consultant etc) as sometimes this can have quite nasty effects, some medications have to be withdrawn gradually etc.

I’m not a doctor (OK, not that kind of doctor), but I’ve spent 20+ years in the pharma industry and I also know that the long term meds I take can’t just be stopped without risking me having a seizure, for instance.

Just a thought.

Also well worth consulting your pharmacist. My mother's doctor (when she was in her nineties) often prescribed something and her pharmacist, when given the prescription, warned her against taking it as it clashed with other medication. He would refer the prescription back to the doctor and I don't think he was ever over-ruled.

Yes, and some GP practices these days actually have their own clinical pharmacist as part of the team - they're there to do things like advise GPs and patients on how drugs combine (or not!), how to get the best from your prescribed drugs, etc

Good points, both.

I know my epilepsy meds, which are a bit old school, but work well for me, are notorious for having bad interactions with a lot of other medications, so I always quiz the doctor about whether such and such that they want to prescibe is contraindicated for carbamazepine (we had a heated debate about antibiotics once, turns out there aren’t many types I can take :roll: ), but it can get very complicated for folks who need to take multiple meds, and a pharmacist is often the best person to advise.

A lot of things react differently on different people, as well. It's not much consolation being told that only 1 in 100 people get the horrible side effects that you've experienced :cry: , but it does mean that the doctor wasn't to expect that you'd get them, and that's why you weren't warned about them. Been there, done that!

If you buy a tub of ice cream, when you get home put it in the freezer not the fridge or you end up with a cold icy drink! Quite nice, but not what you intended!

While we 're with the puddings, do NOT sneeze when you have just put a spoonful of cherries in kirsch in your mouth.

(If I'm anything to go by, you will end up looking as though you've been fighting with some of Abbey's pointy things!)

Do not take your distance glasses off when you are moving closer to the computer and then sit on the chair you have put them on...

It might have worked in a sweet white bread. Definitely doesn't in granary.

When you go to the fridge for milk for your cup of tea, don't take out the butter instead! Or at least notice when you have taken the lid off with knife poised. (I didn't actually put butter in the tea, not sure what result would have been like!)

...and if you do, then try not to sit on them so hard that when you take them into the opticians for the arm to be straightened, you are told that a lens has chipped as well and will need replacing :(

When putting something in the oven to bake, it will not progress very well if you switch on the grill instead...

My brother-in-law apparently has enough sense to be trusted to go to a conference at his firm's office in Sydney. Unfortunately, he apparently does not have enough sense to remember that July is winter in Australia - just had a text to say that he's only taken shorts and T-shirts for casual wear and it's 10 degrees C. If travelling long distance, it is advisable to check the weather first, or at least to remember what season it will be at your destination :roll: .
