Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Little wonder you're feeling tired @Shaz51. You are only recently back at work, and so many other things going on with carer responsibilities. Now it turns out your kidney function has dropped ... AND .. now its confirmed you also have an infection which your poor bod is trying its hardest to fight off! That alone will make you tired, let alone everything else my friend. You need a break. A chance to permit the antibiotics to kick in. What are the chances?

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

how are you today mr @Darcy

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

very true @Sherry

but then the doctor said my last blood tests were done in november -- wonder why the kidney specialist was worried in december

so the gp wants to do a new tests to see if there are any changes

hugs @Sherry Heart

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Has Mr Shaz said anything about the possibility of MI review @Shaz51?

 

Have a cold, so a bit stuffed up here. Been taking it easy doing a jigsaw.

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

hope you feel better soon @Darcy Heart

doing a jigsaw. sounds good , I have a new jigsaw which was given to me , I like to do it but I still got the one last year on the table

Mr shaz just nodded his head and said nothing , even when the doctor asked him for permission to do a history check @Sherry

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Mr Darcy's pdoc said that when stable a six monthly review would be adequate @Shaz51

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Not that they think he is unstable @Shaz51, just need to get him off this med safely.

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

just woke up @Darcy

thought you meant to wake up feeling better

soo hot now , the rain has stopped

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

@Darcy, @Sherry

it will be interesting to see what he says and what is followered up as we go through a lot of doctors in our small town

yes it was a good idea , just we were not expecting it this morning

Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Many studies done showing hot weather = grumpy, angry, less productive @Shaz51 (for everyone, but worse with MI)

Looked it up as @Queenie  posted about it on the LE side about it.

Managing it by drinking extra water and doing things to keep cool is recommended.
