Unless I book the day off I'll be working. I had to change my shift at work as I have to go to hospital every week for a year and to do that I was forced to have to work permanent weekends.

Julie will know what this is but it appears I have Haemochromatosis

Oddjob  my dad was diagnosed with Hemochromatosis about 3 years ago now.
His Ferritin level was up to 4000 his blood was so thick it was like raspberry moose. 
He too was having to go to the hospital once a week for a year to get his levels to normalise.
My brother and I was told to be tested but when my brother saw the doctor he was told to man up and go away.  :o So Iv never found out. We have all radically changed our diets and all feel better for it. My dad hasn't had his blood taken now for about 1 1/2 years now.

My dad and I both intend on going again this year if work allows.

If left untreated it can cause lots of problems, cancer being the worst. However catch it early before it really starts to kick in and you can control it a lot easier. Tell your brother to get tested, believe me the little jab then is a LOT better than the cure after.

My ferritin level is dropping now, still high but getting better by the week, still hate the Venesection though.

I've booked hols for the 1st July so I may be there, depends on a lot of stuff though, hopefully I won't get sunstroke like I did last year and wimp out.

Just an aside about medication....which I have been on for about 10 years......my GP at the time....a very nice Lady told me that she liked to try a 'cocktail' of pills as they all did different things and together the right 'cocktail' would see me sorted out OK. I cheekily suggested that I was rather hoping to take those new ones that I had recently read about !

Looking at me over her designer specs......she asked "And what are those Mr T"....my reply...."Oh you know.....those new tablets you take six times a day - after sex".

She put her pen down and fixed me with a withering look and responded, "Mr T.....if I could prescribe such a tablet, I would be taking it myself" !

Touche.

Woman doctors have no sense of humour, whilst having an examination a few years ago she asked "Do you have trouble with erections" I said "Yeah, can you stop me getting so many". Not a flicker, just a look like I was something she'd stepped in.

Whereas when getting a prostate exam from a male doctor I said " Don't know about you doc but I could never be gay" he nearly wet himself

Is this the first time you have felt fit to ride or has the weather been holding you back as well. My much nicer other half had a new hip 5 weeks ago.

Hi,

Just had an email through about this years event on the 1st July.

Last year went down well with those who went I think. Personally now when I read many posts, I can relate to them more - knowing the "character"** behind it. (**substitute a word of your choice!).

This years brochure accompanying below. Who's in then?

Let you know more when I receive further info.

Any further update on the Crich show as I am hoping to make it again this year

I may be able to make it but will be on the CB1300. It's in bits ATM for some much needed TLC and some of the parts are taking an age to arrive, ordered a set of Samco hoses for it and 8 weeks delivery time  ::) All being well though I'll try and make it this year.
