I have had all sorts of cardio investigations, the results of which I know I have some narrowing of one of my coronary arteries.

"Some narrowing" - if only.  I function these days with blood supply to the heart reduced by 50%.

Mine's reduced by 50 to 60% apparently. Described in the letter as "moderate" and requiring no further intervention at this stage.

Can't you get kaolin and morphine any more then?

I couldn’t possibly comment on that, but I find that morphine in particular is very poor at hiding a screw. It just doesn’t set hard enough.

1) Having the awful realisation that I need new curtains & curtain poles.  The existing curtains are so faded they are only good for dust sheets.

2) Coming to the even more awful conclusion that I can't put off redecorating this flat for much longer.  At least I won't need to buy dust sheets.

OT, but it seems Kaolin is only available on prescription.  We used to have a big tin of it when I was (much) younger. I still remember the feeling as the poultice was applied to the boil on my elbow.

Next time you are near St Austell, you can pick up a good few kg for nowt.  It's the clay weathering product of the feldspar mineral in granite - it's an alumino-silicate compound.  Loads of it goes into cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, pottery (aka China Clay), paint, etc.  You could eat it without harm, although I wouldn't!

I believe it can be used to treat diarrhoea - tho perhaps a bit drastic!

That's what the kaolin & morphine was for. Kaolin to bung up and morphine to reduce motility (as you will all know from Trainspotting, of course).
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.
