I have been so lazy and not written the past few days. maybe you as a reader have been glad of the rest as well.
I have been so busy on the computer which is sad as it means more and more Mesowarriors have need my support. The first contact through my blog or facebook and are depearte for knowledge and support. This tell s me that the NHS id letting people down. Some hospitals are still wonderful but some are not. I would never believe there was a post code lottery but I have to admit there is.
We really do have to educate all oncologists about asbestos and mesothelioma.
I feel now the House of Commons and Buckingham Palace are in trouble with Asbestos things really might change. With the Queen having to have her office moved and the Prime Minister surely the will realise that Schools have to be moved and sorted Maintanence work costing as much as £150m is needed for the central London palace, with the BBC quoting sources as saying there were “significant amounts of asbestos” that needed to be removed.“One option is for the palace to be vacated,” a source said.The £150m sum depended on whether the refurbishment was carried out in one go or staggered through a rolling programme.Sir Alan Reid, keeper of the privy purse, said: “Over the coming years, the maintenance of the estate and in particular Buckingham Palace will present a significant financial challenge. We will continue to work closely with the Royal Trustees to ensure that the funding for the Royal Household reflects that challenge.”
So with the House of Commons Under a proposa for basic repairs – such as improving fire safety, removing asbestos and restoring damaged stonework – would cost an estimated £3.9bn.
A higher-spec version of the partial move-out, with some of the same extras as a full move-out, would cost an estimated £4.4bn.
Gosh the cost of removal is costing this country Billions. Can we keep going on like this. Maybe we should all move out and go to the moon to start again.
Then on top of all this the country seems to under siege from the poor people in other countries abandoning the unpleasent landthey live in and moving to our small island. I have been watching all the terrifying pictures
We in East Kent have talked about this problem for years and people were poo hooing us and saying they never saw anyone when they came to Calais in their Motor Homes Well they couldnt be looking as we are now proving we do have an enormous problem and an enormous ammount of people trying to get here. Kent is the first port of call and our hospital is duty bound not to turn anyone away,
To my way of thing this is the Government again. Closing their eyes to what is going on and I liking it to Asbestos and the problem that could have been solved so easy in the 60’s 70′ 80’s. Why do they wear blinkers and have Tunnel vision.
If –IF they solved the problems as they happen we wouldnt get the emergencies we get now.
This is causing a huge problem now and very sad for Im so scared of it ending in bloodshed.
Well of off my soap boax I did have a great idea put before me on Facebook
The shopping Trolley bags.
I love them and of coarse I ordered them straight away.
British Lung have publishe some good point for looking after our Lungs in hot weather –If we get any thats is .
1. Avoid the heat
Avoid the heat: stay out of the sun and don’t go outside between 11am and 3pm. If you have to go out, or have things to do, try planning your day to do them in the cooler parts of the day.
2. Keep out of the sun
If you do need to go out during the day, avoid being in the sun for long stretches, and wear loose, cool clothing and a hat.
3. Pack a bag of essentials
Take a bag of essentials with you such as any medication that you might need, plenty of water and a fan.
4. Reduce strenuous activity
Reduce or avoid strenuous activity in the heat (indoors and outdoors). Limit activities like housework and gardening to the early morning or evening when it’s cooler. The benefits of exercise are great if you have a lung condition, so make sure you exercise indoors in a cool, well-ventilated room or gym instead.
5. Drink cold water
Drink cold water regularly even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol, which makes you pee more and causes you to dehydrate.
6. Keep your house cool
Try to keep your house cool. Closing blinds or curtains can help. Keep the windows closed while the room is cooler than it is outside. If it is safe to do so, open windows at night when the air is cooler.
7. Take cool baths or showers
Take cool baths or showers, or splash yourself with cool water.
8. Use a handheld fan
Try using a handheld fan and let the cool air blow towards the middle part of your face. Hold it about six inches from your face. You may also find a floor standing fan or desktop fan helps. Do not have the fan blowing directly into your face, as this may cause you to inhale dust.
9. Eat as normal
Try to eat as you normally would – even if you aren’t hungry. You need a normal diet to replace salt losses from sweating. In addition, try to have more cold foods, particularly salads and fruit, as these contain a lot of water.
10. Check pollution and pollen
Avoid areas of high pollution, such as near busy roads. You can check pollution levels online, and if you have hay fever or other allergies you should also check the pollen count.
