anything you fancy asking? i've got one, give me a minute
will have thinkie
i'm feeling very lethargic and getting cramps that are absolutely horrendous. i also often feel like my stomach is going to burst. i haven't even eaten much today, and it's still really swollen.
i've got a follow up with a gastroenterologist on monday, and not expecting any miracles from home remedies but if anyone has any weird tips that have worked for them i'm happy to recieve advice.
my boyfriend was supposed to be coming round before five but now that's looking unlikely i might just go to bed? can not get comfortable when sitting up and i feel so drained so it might do me good to lie on my back?
tl;dr - has anyone got any tips for abdominal swelling? owen?
i.e. would doing something to get you moving, like exercise or yoga help, or is it something that would require anti-inflammatories?
can really help.
I have that too at the moment, it's awful.
a nice warm bath might help too.
Have you ruled out emergencies such as appendicitis, peritonitis?
Wish I could offer more help and advice or some miracle help but all of it has varied success. When I get it really bad I tend to stick to elemental and liquid diets to ease digestion, have soothing things like peppermint and chamomile tea to help with inflammation, and take buscopan and some form of settlers or rennie, and use a hot water bottle to help with the pain from cramps.
If it's really severe I will spend a day not eating and potentially even take a strong laxative so there is nothing in my system which can cause further upset, but this is in extreme cases and may not work for you.
I really wish I could offer more help and advice but the pain can also be caused by any number of things. With the crohns it's ulcerating, inflaming and narrowing of the passages which causes a lot of the problem and pains, but there are lots of other things that can cause it so I can't prescribe any one solution :(
I like everyone here and don't mind the work but literally can't raise an atom of motivation in re. the company, its goals, or furthering my career here. What do?
They're not meant to be fun, you're basically whoring your time
keep your head down, you can always fuck it off later if you feel like it
Applying for jobs online, and sending off CVs to recruiters.
What else can one do?
Feel a bit aimless with it atm.
Get a job with vice
what should i do about my fucked up face?
It's cold enough to wear one
I was going to go for a gentle run and yoga later. But I am cross and a bit hormonal and not feeling hugely energetic. Do I sack it off and just go straight home for leftover curry and cuddling up on sofa? I think I know the answer to this.
now answer my question, it's very important that I fake this thing convincingly
Act as if you're really invested in their vision for the company and its strategy. Do they have a strategic plan or anything like that for you to swot up o
Been unofficially told I have a big dog promotion (yay!)
but it means i have to go into the redundancy pool (booo!/yay?)
nothing can possibly go wrong, right?
(doesn't even matter, fucking hate my job anyway)
also, it's come at a fantastic time in terms of my stress meltdown levels as i would be working 7 days a week for the next two months even without this
so, on to my advice question. Brown belt with black shoes - acceptable?
Yellow belt, green shoes... that sort of caper.
*If you're gonna mix things up
Don't do brown belt with black shows douchie. Please.
shoes, not shows.
Really important clarification
being in a constant state of anxiety means i am exhausted by lunchtime. i can barely function by hometime. idk if im just getting used to a new routine and new things to be stressed about. also have a lot of nervous energy in the mornigns cause i've not been to the gym since i got here. so weird that i've only been here just over a week. feels like loads longer.
i wore brown boots with a black dress today :(
after starting my traineeship to be able to feel anything better than zombie like after 2pm. I'd say it took me at least 3 months to be able to do it without feeling completely wrong, and I don't especially suffer with anxiety. so go a little easy on yourself. You're in a new city with language issues and this is you first big post grad jopb, so lots of challenging aspects, but none of them beyond you. remember- don't stop breathing, and before you know it, it's lunchtime, then repeat, and before you know it, it's nearly hometime x
I think they look good together. Also, who says? Fuck them.
...as in don't wear brown shoes with a black suit? Anyway, it is stupid - black goes with everything.
And I look fucking great.
I have watches, belts, jackets and shoes in both brown and black to avoid it because I personally don't like how it looks on me if I don't match. Wouldn't have a problem with someone else doing it though.
