Peony has deigned to tenderise me. What this involves is her massaging me before laying on/against me because it apparently makes me feel more comfortable for her.

Don't worry. According to my experience this is absolutely normal, at least as long as Peony identifies herself as a cat.
It looks like I'm back in someone's good books.
Well... cats use some short term accounting on that... It could change without warning.
if I remember correctly, thy wanted also to make a CT , but after also the chief md looked on my leg venes whit a ultra sound device thy took it out ,
My first reading was the chief medical doctor wanted to take your leg off you.
I'm glad they didn't cut your leg.

Edit2 : 100 degrees body temperature is way too much, at least if you live in Germany

Don't forget JDTAY is working in Fahrenheit because he's from the backward states.

Yes, @JDTAY is a clear, book case of Farenheitism. He's just looking for further diagnostics.

The other dream as I watched walking dead where Conny was using the Americans sign language, that whe would have one sign language for the whole world, and you could have a evening shool course where you could learn it also if you aren’t deaf
This way you could communicate with everyone
One single sign language would be so poor and sad as one single oral language or written language. No thanks.
But learning local sign language in evening school should be possible, I imagine. Have you asked at your nearest Volkhochschule ? I keep forgetting it after some time due to lack of use, unfortunately. My fault.
I'm also not a very visual type, and it doesn't help either. I never got to understand the sign translation on TV news or so. But there are occasional courses, at least around here, I don't know about Germany, but I assumed it should be similar anywhere.
In one of those courses I met someone who worked looking after the children in school courts and mensa, and they said it was very useful for them, not only for deaf pupuils, but also for shy children, specially newcomers who had more trouble learning oral language than sign language. Every child learns different things first, so some were more communicative by signs, even if they could hear and speak. They also used it to talk at some distance between staff when it was too noisy to hear. It's just generally useful, besides being more inclusive the more types of languages one uses.

No they ditnt want to took the leg of, although the danger was a bit that I could got a thrombosis that gos to the heart, so they checked the blood circulation in the vains whit the ultra sonic device, there where also some inflammation going on due to the impact on my muscles.. and I had a lot of bpm also .. although some where maybe because I had to walk that much distance whit crouches..

A international sign language was my idea because when everyone would learn it, they could communicate even when they don’t speak the phonic language of the other person

I hope I'm not misremembering, but I was told there is an international sign language. What was it called ? But very few people use it. I heard its main use was in sign language conventions. When users of different sign languages come together they can use one interpreter for each of the sign languages who translates it to the international sign language and back again to the other sign languages, allowing communication between the people who don't use the international sign language without needing n*n interpreters.

Sign languages are natural languages and they evolve with the people that use them. Designed languages are kind of too artificial. Even Esperanto, which such a lovely community (from what I hear) hasn't achieved widespread use. It doesn't mean that designed languages aren't interesting, only that it is not possible, and I don't find it desirable, to have only one international language. For me it'd be better if everyone spoke many languages, (not 1-3 languages for everyone). Even teenagers invent their own words just so that older people don't understand them.

Maybe, except for where you spell things out. But as you've noted, we've ended up with different systems for America and Britain, despite on the surface at least sharing a spoken language. At least British, Indian, Australian and other commonwealth counties use related languages for the deaf.

Today I almost felt like trying again to develop software, but then I remembered that I cancelled my Pyra preorder, and it just seemed kinda pointless.

I mean, the world definitely isn't suffering from a software shortage, but at least with a platform like Pyra, you can get noticed by Pyra users, even if you can't get noticed anywhere else.

You can always search github for open bugs and fix them if you like the project.

I have a soft lump on the back of my upper left leg, so far up it’s covered by underwear. I’m thinking lipoma. I kinda wanna picture of it now to check it out, but I guess I can wait for my dermatologist appointment in two weeks.

My picture is worrying me. Are lipomas supposed to be light brown?

Well, only two more weeks to worry anyway.

Yeah, I’m not thinking lipoma anymore, not only because they aren’t brown, but because they live under the skin, whereas this one’s above the skin. I’m not thinking melanoma though, because melanomas are supposed to be hard and crusty. Also, this one looks a bit too light to be melanoma. I dunno, I’ll try googling “light soft melanoma” and see what comes up.

The price is a bit steep. I do not think JDTAY is good at saving up money to buy Github back into freedom.

I tried looking up that skin growth on the back of my leg, and it sounds like an intradermal nevus. Didn't even bother showing it to my GP today. If it's something more serious, my dermatologist will catch it in two weeks.

Anyway, I asked my GP, and she included a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test with the rest of my labs today. She said my thyroid function was normal in May of 2020, but that we might as well check it again, since people on atypical antipsychotics are at some risk for lowered TSH.

Body temperature can be useful in identifying a fever, but I'd agree checking it regularly when you don't otherwise feel at all ill is a waste of time, and posting it is similar, but thankfully I can skim over those posts with minimal effort; thanks for the training! ;)

Things on your skin can be important, It's important to see if moles are growing or weeping, since that can be an indicator of melanoma, but this far I feel I've been able to rely on my memory of my moles rather than taking any photos so I've not felt the need to post the photo I haven't taken to all and sundry on t'internet.
