Haha the title of this post really did make me chuckle when I was writing it out. I have the Wired YouTube video on when Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal read out the auto search Google things. I fucking love Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal is so adorable.
ANYWAY! I’ve been quiet for nearly a week now sadly and this is for a reason… A very good one at that! I’ve been pretty poorly on and off the past week and it was only with an upset phone call to my doctors yesterday that I finally got an answer.
I hadn’t felt great with going to the loo all of last weekend, which sucked but I thought it would pass. It seemed to but as soon as Monday had come and gone, I was extremely poorly Tuesday. Without going into too much detail, I nearly wet myself waiting for a train to work, as well as walking from the trains platform towards where I work. I’ll elaborate as to why I had gotten the train instead of driving later.
SO I had to rush to the toilet in the train station as walking was incredibly uncomfortable. Work is only a couple of minutes walk away too, so I must have been bad to think I wouldn’t make it there! That whole day bloody sucked. I was going to the toilet every hour during my shift and it wasn’t only the Tuesday that this happened on. It also happened all day Wednesday AND Thursday!
I decided Wednesday evening whilst at home that this wasn’t normal and I knew I would call the doctors on Thursday morning. That morning however I had some quick errands to run before going to work, which included getting rid of some cardboard one of my local recycling centres, as well as popping to the Post Office to grab a parcel I’d missed.
Sadly on the walk to the Post Office and then back to my car I felt the way I had Tuesday, like I was about to wet myself. I had to run into one of the local supermarkets to go to the loo and after I popped to the pharmacy and asked if they could help me at all. They couldn’t and recommended I head to the doctor straight away.
From then until 9am I called my doctors surgery 10 times and it constantly went to caller busy. I finally got through and was told, “sorry nothing left.” I was fed up and felt like I could cry down the phone. This was now starting to impact my life.
Think about it, I’m trying to get on with my work and then my body is telling me I must go pee before I pee myself!
Thankfully the receptionist took all my symptoms down and said she would get a nurse to call me back to see if I could be helped over the phone or if I’d need to come in.
It turned out that I had a UTI and the nurse was lovely enough to sort out some medication for me to pick up near work! I was chuffed to be honest. It really cheered me up knowing that I was getting something to help me.
A day later and I’m definitely better, although still in pain. I was so scared it would be something a hell of a lot worse. Whenever I’ve had UTI issues in the past I’ve had short passings of urine, but this time it was normal passings, EVERY HOUR. I was worrying I could have diabetes, or (as my best friend calls it) a lazy bladder, or even incontinence.
I’m really hoping that I don’t need anymore medication like the nurse suggested, my doctors is crap and it’s so hard to get an appointment some days. I do just want to be better. On that Thursday morning I had had the toilet 3 times in the space of an hour, and as I said they were all normal wees!
ANYWAY no more talk about pee… You’re probably wondering why I had to get the train to work this week?
My car had some slight issues with it which happened whilst I was out with my dad to see some family. I’m glad he was with me to be honest but I was a nervous wreck driving him home and then driving myself home. I was fine though. I couldn’t get my car seen Monday but I could Tuesday. I dropped it off Tuesday morning and it was done in the evening! 😀 I was so chuffed! The garage I take my car to are absolute legends and do jobs at such wonderful prices. I’m just so pleased it was sorted in one day, and whilst I was at work!
I haven’t noticed any issues since it being fixed, which is amazing! I love my car so much and lately I’ve enjoyed driving it more than ever. I love driving me and Dane places if I can, but he always likes to drive. 😛
Today was pretty good! Both me and Dane booked work off so we could spend the day together and we decided yesterday that we would go to watch Black Panther before it’s taken out of cinemas. Oh man I’m so glad we went to watch it to be honest with you as I loved it SO MUCH! My favourite character was for sure Killmonger (or leopard as I keep calling him… :P) for so many reasons! I feel like his character really did over shine Black Panther and he stole the limelight for both me and Dane.
We went super early in the afternoon too so it was nice to come out early, get some ingredients to bake Dane’s birthday cake and come home to do just that. Boy was Dane awkward with the birthday cake he wanted this year!
He asked for a pancake cake, which I thought would be a doddle… Alas it proved to be harder than I thought. I’m not showing any pictures of the cake I baked as it doesn’t look picture worthy. If anything I was really disappointed in myself that it didn’t turn out how it should, which in turn has put me in a slight bad mood for the rest of the day.
BUT it’s Dane’s birthday tomorrow and I think I’m more excited for it than he is! 😛 I haven’t been able to buy him much this year as I really struggled with what to get, so I really hope he loves the presents I did buy him!
I’m also really excited for him to open one of his cards as it’s custom made for him. 😛
One thing that has really bugged me this week is something that means a lot to me. My favourite independent artist Ohayou! Clothing has had some issues lately with both her Kickstarter and some pin badges she had up for sale on her website. It’s really annoyed me to be honest! I won’t go into too much detail here you can go to her Instagram and have a look yourselves if you’re interested. I’m just meh about it all. I try to support her whenever I can and I love her Kickstarter so much (which of course I’ve backed!) as well as some cute doughnut Eeveelution pins she had designed and put up for sale on her website. I’d also pre ordered one of those.
I’m just sad that someone feels the need to shit all over what she is currently doing, as she’s such an amazing designer and I love her work so damn much. I hope stuff gets better for her soon, I really do. 😦
Urgh I’m sorry most of this post has been negative or miserable. Sadly it hasn’t exactly been the best week in the world.
I am excited for tomorrow though and I know not only will I have a great time, but Dane definitely will! We’re going with some friends who are just as geeky as we are, which I’m so excited for!
Anyway, how are my readers? I hope you’re all well!
OH and I recently got to 200 followers on my Bloglovin page, WHICH MAKES ME SO HAPPY! If this stays at 200 by the end of April, I might hold a giveaway for my awesome readers! 😀
It’s getting late now and it’s time to snuggle in bed with Dane to watch this weeks RuPaul episode! 😛
Until next time all, take care all and have an amazing weekend.

Aw mate 😦 It sounds like this week can do one! I really hope the infection clears up, it must have been so stressful to think “is this just how it’s going to be now forever?” Yikes!
Black Panther is freaking amazing isn’t it? I’m so happy its still doing well and people are STILL going to see it! It deserves all the hype 🙂
Oh yeah the week really did suck! 😦 Thankfully I’m feeling loads better now. 🙂
I LOVED Black Panther! 😀
UTI’s suck. I get recurrent ones so I know how you feel! I hope you are feeling much better now and that you are able to enjoy the rare sunshine we currently seem to be having!
They really do don’t they?! I’m feeling so much better now, thank you. ^_^ The doctors did give me more medication as it didn’t go away, but typical it went away the next day and I’d just bought the medication. >.<
