Got some very sound advice from an ex-army bloke which worked a treat for me; two pairs of thin socks will stop the inner ones chafing your feet. Really did work!

Been having pains in my chest while exercising for the last few months. Had a few tests, and I'm currently in the hospital after an angio x-ray thingy. I thought they'd maybe up my meds or something. Turns out they're going to do bypass surgery.

I'm a bit shocked, tbh.
****ing hell, mate, sorry to hear that.

Do you have a date yet?

Was this something they spotted on a regular checkup or had you been problems?

Recent routine eye test. My eyes are otherwise healthy, and I don't need glasses (yet). But the pressure test (puff of air in the eyes) were coming back with high readings, so they did it again the following week (in the morning) and were still high. Went to the hospital yesterday for another exam and a different pressure test (where they push the thing against your eyeball) and they're still high. Am on drops now, presumably for the rest of my life, and am being booked in to the glaucoma clinic soon.

Worth getting tested, chaps. Can cause blindness if left untreated.

Thanks.

I wear lenses/glasses so I get tested fairly regularly anyway. But my eyes have taken a sharp downturn since I got into my 40s...bifocals have already been mentioned!

God luck to you, hope you keep it under control.

Our ****ing dog ( a female shitzu ). She took my wife's brand new ( one ****ing day ) frameless glasses ( €200 ) off the coffee table and chewed them to bits last month.

My wife spent another €200 replacing them last week and fell asleep on the couch last night putting the new glasses resting on the coffee table.

The dog only did it again.

This one year old mutt has chewed our kitchen table legs, chairs, every kitchen skirting board, even the corners of kitchen units and the wall right through to the metal corner bits.

We tried the dog spray stuff, she ****ing likes it and drinks it!

Our pug has chewed through loads of pairs of my glasses (and cases) which is the reason I will only ever buy £ shop reading glasses. He's an 'effin nightmare for chewing stuff.

Give it another 10-12 years to calm down. Our dogs have destroyed doors, skirting, sofas, countless dog beds, quilts, dvds and shoes. Add children to that and we've been living in a disaster zone for the last 10 years! Wouldn't have it any other way!

I don't get the whole dog love thing - or any pet for that matter. 12 years of inconveniences and extra responsibilities, draining valuable minutes from my precious free time and valuable finances that could have been spent on me. And in return, nothing that benefits me at all.
