    1.3 million of them. Thats a hell of a percentage of the work force getting a rise at the expense of the rest of the work force, and yes I do know the NHS staff pay tax.

    I use between 2100 and 2400 litres over the year depending on whether it’s a cold year or not. That’s on a 3 storey well insulated detached house.

    We have a village syndicate ordering around 40,000 litres every month so negotiate great savings. Miles cheaper than gas I reckon and oil prices are still lower than I was paying 10 years ago.

    I try to give my two as much “off lead* exercise as poss. It’s more healthy and natural for them.

    It would seem the problem is the laziness of the dog owners in not taking the dogs to a place where “off lead” walking is acceptable.

    Having said that, I’ve been remonstrated with by owners for having my two off leads in dedicated off lead walking areas. Mind you, they are a pair of little bastards.

    If his GP will allow it, I would ring him with your concerns. Otherwise, would he let you accompany him to one of his appointments? That may be another way to discuss what’s happening.

    Another thought: is he receiving prescription pain meds for these ailments? Is there a possibility that he’s addicted and trying to cover up the real problem?

    I will enquire as to whether or not I can speak with the GP. I would feel happier doing that than going to an appt with him…he is likely to get very reactive I think, as he has a tendancy to lose perspective on things anyway, and I think it would be easier to speak to the GP alone.

    That’s a good thought, but he isn’t on anything at all meds wise now….I have prescribed codeine and he has taken these once or twice for the “pain” he is experiencing, but I would notice if they had gone down, so I am fairly certain it’s not that.

    @abdul Thank you for the reply. It is reassuring to know that someone else has been in this situation, and also reassuring to hear that maybe taking a hard line is more helpful to him. This is what I feel like I want to do, but I don’t want to push him away.

    He is going to the GP again this morning and we are lucky to have an excellent doctor. I’m hoping that he will get the reassurance he needs again today or that the GP will recognise a pattern here. I want to go and see the GP myself to talk about my OH, but I realise that from the doctors view he can’t talk about it and it’s unethical.
