I'm not sure all of Donegal should be represented by Buncrana/Inishowen. Hopefully we vote yes!

I still need to change my registration to Dublin though, won't be able to get home to vote for it. Can I go to any Garda station to get my change of reg form stamped?
Apologies about the delay.

Sadly I know one of those individuals interviewed and without being libelous they are hugely disliked around the town and their opinion wouldn't be worth their weight in air.

I think Donegal will still vote yes. It's easy just to find a few naysayers anywhere you go - look at what SSN do outside every football ground. Sadly you can't censor all the idiots all the time.

Hope you managed to get your vote sorted too dwayne.

I have a mild form of seb derm, started to get blotches on my face that come and go. But then I was getting weird aches and pains in my joints that had spread from what I thought was just an old football injury in my knee playing up, so my doc is sending me to a derm and rheumatologist to check if I have psoriatic arthritis! Google image hasn't helped one bit since I heard that one :shock:

I've had a dicky foot the past couple of weeks. An ache that comes or goes, kinda around the "knuckle" of my big toe.

Is it possible that I could have damaged it without actually taking a knock or falling or anything?

I did not. Gonna ask to leave an hour early from work, get the 5:30 bus and should be in LK for 9-9:30, enough time to get to my polling station.

I'd much rather a vote to make civil partnership equivalent in terms of rights.
No self respecting gay couple should get married.

And why not? And who are you (as a straight person) to tell gay people how they should feel?

only problem is that it doesn't get through hair, so it won't help your scalp. my head's completely fucked. i'd look like gorbachev if you stripped away the hair

light treatment cured me everywhere else for about 5 years though. now it's creeping back. got a whopper piece coming through one of my tattoos, which is shit. sunny climate helps though

try cocois if you cant get coal tar
haha yeah I read that about men having to wear a jock strap that they provide :lol:

5 years! ? That's fucking class... Aw I'd be happy even with a few months relief. It hurts to sit down cos I have it on the back of my legs so if that even cleared up I'd be delighted

never knew there were so many scaly forum friends :lol:

I have psoriatic arthritis. Being honest it's probably the worst thing that's happened to me but it's under control now for the most part. I couldn't walk down the stairs in my house one day with the pain and my doctor kept saying there was nothing wrong. HE WAS WRONG!!!!!

the medication for it is a shit load cheaper over here too. I had thrown out some of it while moving here, because they're steroid based and I wasn't sure if I'd be locked up on arrival (solpedine isn't sold here).

A tube that cost 200 Euro (seriously) in Dublin, cost me 15 Euro here, and I got it without a prescription (so no doc trip)

Hope it works out for you

Proper health coverage is the business. I bought a couple of tubes of some cream and When they said it was 86 euro I gave them a big WTF. Turns out it was 86 cent.

That's wtf even by your standards!

I have had that light treatment before zook, it's really amazing. Never had to take tablets with it though.

Shit one, yeah I've only really briefly read about it but I'm as cautious of the side effects of the meds they prescribe for it as I am of the condition itself tbh.
I'll just keep it in that back of the mind storage space until I have to deal with it, like most things. :lol:

The earlier they find out what's wrong and treat it the better it'll be for you in the long run though

Hope it's not for your sake though!

If the early exit poll results are correct, Britain is fucked as the DUP are going to give them the balance of power.

very surprised by those results, how could all the polling companies be so wrong the past while?

That really would be the absolute nightmare. The rest of the UK has got to ignore the absolute batshit mental shite the DUP come out with for quite a while, if they're a coalition partner then they'll no longer have such luck

Of course if Sinn Fein took their seats then the DUP wouldn't be enough...
