Well, I am pleased to say my "cold" did not develop. I think Crystal Jigsaw may be right, when she commented on my last post, and I may have had a touch of an allergic reaction to all the tree pollen about at the moment. I have not suffered from hay fever before, but there is so much pollen around at the moment and conditions are fairly dry, so maybe this may occur again.
Greg has been prescribed some new tablets. He already takes a bucket-load of tablets each day. He has diabetes (for which he injects insulin), heart disease, circulatory problems in his legs, possible early cirrhosis and possible brain damage. The last two brought on by his heavy drinking. The rest probably caused by smoking 30-40 cigarettes a day all his life. The new tablets are to help him with nerve pains he gets in his feet. All in all, he now takes 15 tablets spread over his waking day. The new ones say DEFINITELY NO ALCOHOL. The existing ones advise against alcohol. Greg is now back to drinking anything between half and three-quarters of a standard 70cl bottle of whisky per day. Sometimes he washes the tablets down with a glass of whisky.
If I say anything, he shouts and rants. I really do despair.
