Repeated failed attempts to download clips from YouTube via two different applications. These YouTube bastards are continually modifying their systems to block people from downloading, that's when they're not censoring and removing a whole lot of interesting material that people post on there.

'Big Tech', dontcha just love 'em?

^ Ha! I've just installed an update for 4K Downloader, and can now grab videos from YouTube again, until they catch up again, of course.

Take that, YouTube!

:D

Only being able to stand or walk for maybe a minute before I have to sit down because I’m graying out badly enough that I can barely see where I’m going and my sense of direction has switched off so I don’t even know which way is up or down anymore. I can get myself to and from the bathroom, the dinner table, and upstairs/downstairs for bed/starting the day, but I usually have to stop at least once per trip. It’s so dang frustrating to barely be able to do anything. (This is all part of the anemia, not anything new that’s joined it.)

When you assume, it makes an a** out of u and me.

I have increasing memory issues, and a tendency to forget that I forget everything. Please don't take it personally if I forget something, it probably says absolutely nothing about how important the thing is/isn’t to me.

Thank you. I do make sure to sit down even in the middle of the floor when I start feeling like that so I don’t fall and hurt myself, and a good thing about quarantine is that now there are always people home to help me if I need it (my mom can’t even work from home so I know I’m not interrupting anything too important if I ask her). I’m waiting to hear back from my doctor about when she wants to see me next.

I'm sorry this is still happening.

Have you ever had heart tests or worn a heart monitor?
Did you have a full "iron panel" done in your blood tests? (Includes ferritin, saturation and TIBC) ?

I'll attach this for your reference so you can ask your doctor.

http://www.irondisorders.org/Websites/i ... erted_.pdf

The iron panel tests are in red ^.
Sometimes doctors only check one or two iron levels instead of the full panel.

Are you sleeping any better?

Another parcel I ordered about two months ago didn't get sent. At least I got a refund this time. At least they told me I would get one.

Don't trust anyone or anything, not even yourself, for you are a human, and humans are almost as trustworthy as a dog being left alone to guard a steak.

Omg, same and this was for a new hoover that was ordered around that time. It told me that it was to be due for the 15th May.
That obviously passed that day and was wondering what is going on?
Turns out after looking at the tracking page that it was still in a warehouse in Stratford Le Hope and then for some reason or another, it got returned to sender.
I was refunded for it, thankfully but it was not a very good experience and would probably never order anything on Amazon again. Bad experience.
Yesterday, went to go to Argos inside of a Sainsbury's and nobody on earth told me that you have to order this online. Thank God for my friend who was there and his quick thinking ordered this through his phone somehow and we were able to collect it.
Somehow I don't know how he was able to singlehandedly lift it with no problems, but hey. He is quite a big lad. :lol:

I have not had anything done regarding my heart. I’m guessing that they did not do a full iron panel since the only information I received was my iron level, nothing more specific. I’ll make sure to ask for that at my next doctor appointment, or I suspect my next step may be to see a hematologist, and I expect the first thing they’d do is a full panel test.

I’m not sleeping much better, but it’s about at a “normal for me” amount, so I can manage it.

Someone on Reddit claiming Canada Dry isn't from Canada and it isn't dry.
I told them it *is* from Canada, and it's called dry because because it's not as sweet as most other kinds of ginger ale, similar to dry wine.

The cultural ignorance of other people never fails to amaze me. :roll:

People who, when they hear "Ginger Ale", automatically think of Canada Dry -- it is not the only Ginger Ale.  Vernors is the oldest surviving Ginger Ale sold in the United States.

The cultural ignorance of other people never fails to amaze me.  :roll:

john densmore's drumming appears just a hair behind the beat on a newly remastered [from original multitrack elements, by me] "Touch Me" :o i wish i could fix his drumming. if i slide it backwards in time to compensate it loses its groove somehow. :scratch: no wonder it was mixed low in the original release.

My next doctor’s appointment isn’t until June 16 :x There’s really no need to wait that long, it’s been more than three weeks since my previous iron infusions and none of them had any effect, why would this one be any different? Just means I have to put up with this stuff for an extra two weeks before anything is actually done :roll: And even then, probably all that will happen is that they’ll take some blood to check my iron level again, then I’ll have to wait another few days for the results, which will probably be either about the same as they were before or lower, then I’ll probably have to wait a while before making another appointment, either with my doctor or a hematologist. So. Much. Waiting.

And ordinarily I’d go pull weeds or scrub the bathtub or something so I was productively working out my frustration, but with the anemia, my energy levels are such that I probably could only pull, like, two small weeds or give the tub about five swipes with a sponge before I’d have to stop (assuming I could even bend down to do such tasks at all), and that will only make me more frustrated.
