Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Oil in my pee

    hmmm...very odd, but hey. When I have a pee, there seems to be a oily residue on the top.

    Any ideas?

    It is normal to have a certain amount of what appears to be an oily residue in your urine, particularly if you let the urine sit for an extended period of time (e.g., more than 20 minutes). If the amount appears to be substantial, or if your urine is also milky in color, you should be seen by your doctor for tests - it may indicate an infection or something more serious. Technically the oily substance is caused by chyle, which is a naturally produced substance by the lymph nodes (composed mostly of fat and proteins).

    Bottom line: If the color of your urine hasn't changed, and if you don't have any other symtpoms, you should be fine (but mention it to your doctor on the next visit). If the color has changed, or if you develop any other symptoms (such as pain or irritation), you should see your doctor.

          I have read that before, but it doesnt really mean anything to me.

          I dont leave the toilet unflushed, and I have noticed it straight after.

          But I suppose I am worrying over nowt!

            It's not a sign of pregnancy, but it's a possible cause of oily urine.
