Poorly and naughty Pipex!!

What an awful night I had last night? at about 7pm my asthma got so bad I had to give in and call the out of hours primary care....they told me to go straight up to see them. They have moved to a different place this year so they are not up in the hospital which I thought was good. Of course it took me awhile to find someone to take me....Anna couldn't leave Lilly as she was asleep, Mum's car is broken and poor Nige lives over the otherside of Bristol and would have come but I thought it was a bit too far for him to come over and he wouldn't want to stay in this sick house so I thought...ahh what about Dad!! So I called him up and he came and picked me up and took me down. Once I got there the doctor listened to my chest and did a peak flow and I have never had it so low....it was really low so she put me on the nebulizer which helped a bit but my peak flow was still pretty awful so she was umming and ahhiing about putting me in hospital for the night but I said "no, I would rather die than go to hospital" I just hate them so much....obviously if I had to I would but I said I think I can struggle through, she said well if you get bad in the night just call back and we will put you back on the nebulizer again. She gave me a course of anti-biotics and a course of steriods and I have to double up on my brown inhaler....I have to go back to the doctors on Monday or Tuesday to see the progress....she said she didn't think I have pnemonia....but she wants my doctors to see whether the tablets etc have kicked in well....so dad and I went straight to Sainsbury's pharmacy and picked up my pills....

THEN I got home and was looking forward to going to the Twonk Engagement Party for Pete and Cherry on Perfect Pete's website and the internet just went....I was connected to pipex but I couldn't do anything, no email, no web, nothing. I was thinking "great" especially as I felt really panicy and ill because my asthma was so bad all I wanted to do was chat to people online for a bit to calm down but nope! I tried calling support and they wasn't even open....so I had to give up and go to bed and read and listen to talk radio (not at the same time)...

Woke up this morning and still no internet....tried calling Pipex Support and all I got was "we are experiencing unusual volumes of calls at the moment...please try later" I thought what shite. I have been with pipex for about 5 years and I have never had problems at all....in the whole time I have had one outage before this and when I called the helpline at that time there was a useful message saying something like "Customers in the bristol/bath area maybe experiencing connection problems at the moment" and it went on to say the problem and an estimated time of it being fixed....but not this time....so if they phone me and ask me if I am happy I shall mention that I wasn't happy that I wasn't even offered to sit in a queue I was just cut off!!

Back on now....hope I get to talk to Debbie in a bit....I have missed our chats :( I have about 15 penpal letters to do as well...I feel shit but not as bad as last night but I never do in the day. It's at night it becomes unbareable....
