Hi Joo, Phoebe and Shaz,
Didnt get to see anyone today! I got a new appointment 24th May story of my piggin life :roll: Joo is the group run by a lady called Hilary(cant remember her sirname) she was a very nice lady, I have her phone number and if I ever need to talk to anyone I can ring her good eh!

Yes the ankles I tell you whats funny makes my Steve laugh :lol: Im usually dying for a wee first thing in the mornings, It more a shuffle than a walk I usually get come on old lass, Its when they try to help you if I could kick him I would but I think I would fall over (not a pretty sight) :shock: Also when I get out of the car, my neighbours must think im crackers they woulndt be far off wrong :!: :!:

I know Its a strange question but does anyone know what it means if I said I was spitting feathers?

I come from Yorkshire and I say it when Im thirsty, I live in Somerset they think it means I would be very angry, And one of my volunteers from Bimingham thinks I want some chicken (I think she is madder than me), So I would be interested what peeps from round the country think it means, only clean suggestions please :roll:

I've heard of spiting feathers meaning anger :x but I've also heard of spitting sawdust meaning thirsty!! 8)

And Wendy, you lucky peeps!! You're talking about Hilary Brownett who is the rheumy specialist nurse and then theres Mai Miles who is head physio and they're running a fab course that should be made available to ALL of us!!! It was such an emotional occurance for many people at our first regional meeting in Portishead last year to meet two people who understood fibro and wanted (and were able) to help. They are really forging ahead with an excellent course. Six weeks and two times a week I think? And they cover an initial assessment then go on to do exercises,cognitive therapy, medication, diet, sleep and self management. Southmead Hosp where I go, didn't want to have anything to do with it!!! They are very blinkered in their attitude, I think it is from the 'top' echelons!!! Enough stirring from me....!!!! :evil:

Hiya Joo
Im so sorry lovey, but yes it is the same Hilary, I have an appointment with Mia Miles on 9th June, so I am now looking forward to starting, If they are as good as you say I will be running around again before long, you dont know what it means to me for you to say good things about Weston hospital as I have had a couple of dealings with them over the last few years and lost faith a bit, but Im starting to get it back again

:D

In Birmingham it means either too…god knows what that volunteer of yours is on… lol

spitting feathers Adj. 1. Thirsty. E.g."Let's stop at the next cafe, I'm spitting feathers."
2. Frantic, fretful, agitated. E.g."She was spitting feathers after those kids smashed her front window."


:wink:
You don’t have to be Crazy to have fibro…but it helps.

Hi all - 'spitting feather' up where I am in South Yorkshire can mean either raving mad or more often very very thirsty.
