medical problems stemming from Building my house in Sattahip

Postby fredlk » Fri Jun 17, 2011 3:42 pm

I didn't want to soil my otherwise tidy building story :wink: , but the next (small) problem has arisen. The skin on my one hand is quite dry and flakey. I've never had this before. It is most probably the antibiotics doing this to me, but it might be the water although then 2 hands would be affected.

I'm not worried, not looking for answers, but before we have another discussion on a building story I thought I might mention it here on a dedicated thread. :D
I am / we all are getting older and maybe after all the building has ceased we will be talking about our ailments more and more as people do in care-homes.

There will certainly be stress related problems to discuss the odd accident injury but bad backs aches and pains should be natural age related :cry:
otherwise you are doing it wrong the labour you are paying for should have those :lol: :lol:
Fred do a quick check on the well for algae get a mop and lash it to a length of blue pipe and use it to take a swab down the well see if during the time of drilling and the time of using its contaminated itself if it come up green you need to sterilise the well with a couple of gallons of bleach or chlorine
P S use a new mop head you will be washing in that water later
It may well be the well/aquefer is held in a different rock foremation to the supply in BKK where you were used to it
my comments may be wrong but never deliberately
If it aint broke, dont fix it

Geordie has solutions to a lot of life's problems. I suppose it comes from having to be indoors so much in the nasty British weather.
I bet when he moves here he will have better things to do than to help me solve my problems, but until then I'll take his free advice gladly. :D

Now I am not a hypochondriac and I always take great care of myself. I once fell down the wet stairs in the house in Bangkok and so I built a house without stairs. I am very mindful of all my actions and all my movements so that I don't injure myself, but even though I know this house inside-out something is contnually happening. It doesn't even sound real but honestly, 30 minutes ago, while checking on the lonely goldfish in their tank outside, I somehow lost my balance and went crashing forwards about 1 metre and was stopped by the crunch of the side of my skull on the wall. I have no idea how it happened except maybe it's these darn antibiotics that are ruining my quality of life. I've been alone here now for a few days and it's becoming dangerous to even move. :(

I repaired the damage by washing this newest wound in (medicinal) alcohol and I've put on an antibiotic cream for a while. I've had the shots, the pills and so I can't catch anything anymore but I think I'll stay sitting on this chair until after taking the last pill coming Thursday. I even had the whole garden levelled and cleared so that I wouldn't stand on some glass or a snake and where the garden drops a level, Amnuay created stairs for me as I'm always slipping. I'm not even that old. :roll:

I was thinking of starting a topic Sattahip Bugs' Life, but instead I might start Fred's Wounds Inflicted By His New House. :lol:
I'm not concussed I think, but if reading this anyone thinks I am please let me know.

Okay, I'm sold. How much is your plane ticket? Can you live in one of the workers shacks or will it need upgrading?

We'd have to go halves on the fares. If your wife cooks a decent Thai meal I'll take her on and the dogs. You can visit every so often.

I knew you would be able to handle this geordie.

I have heard jack rusells are very good at snake control and/or anything that moves for that matter. :P

Rather than coughing up half the fare I would leave the wife over there to look after your pending house sale.

Of course you would already know this but I think completely new surroundings on top of those mind altering drugs could be a problem.

I want to buy 2 jack Russells for this very purpose, but can't seem to find any anywhere. If these come with geordie's wife in one package, so be it.

Flakey skin gone. No accidents today. Dressed my own wound. The one wound is closed with a scab.
The other I washed with a saline solution and then put on the intrasite gel before covering it with gauze.
All I need now is to get through these antibiotics.
