They must realise how anxious people get waiting. I hope you are seen at 2pm. How are you managing?

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 02:52 PM

I'm watching a series on Netflix. Trying to distract but I still can't stop looking at the time!

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 02:54 PM

Hello again peoples. This is hard to write because I am spasming so much! Hugs to all.

not_so_insig 21-01-2021 03:02 PM

I had 2 ebay parcels come today Lindsay but they came with the postman and fitted through my letterbox. Am waiting for another ebay parcel but it hasn't been sent yet.

one_step_closer 21-01-2021 03:09 PM

Hope you're in ward round now Beckie. Fingers crossed everything's going ok.

Hi Tamo, does anything help the spasms? Don't be pushing yourself.

Nice post is good :) I got a brown letter today and was terrified but it was just about cold weather payment.

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 03:11 PM

I am not in ward round. Thank you
I doubt it's going to be ok. Will update other thread

one_step_closer 21-01-2021 03:12 PM

Sending hugs if ok.

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 03:13 PM

Thank you <3

one_step_closer 21-01-2021 03:16 PM

Someone just put my delivery through my letter box. He was pushing it slowly and quietly at first like he didn't want to be caught!

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 03:16 PM

I'm on lamotrogine which is meant to help but we're titrating.

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 03:45 PM

That's weird lindsay!

Yeah lamotrigine has to be titrated quite slowly. I'm on it too

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 08:02 PM

My spasms have gone!

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 08:19 PM

That's good

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 09:44 PM

How has your day been? Looking forward to bed? I know I am.

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 09:55 PM

I am definitely looking forward to bed. Going to get in the meds queue now before too many people get there

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 10:03 PM

Good idea

Cacoethes 21-01-2021 10:10 PM

Had meds!
Bedtime now I think.
Good night

tamobhuuta 21-01-2021 10:21 PM

Me too, sweet dreams.

one_step_closer 22-01-2021 10:31 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 11:45 AM

Morning lindsay
I'm annoyed
Was woken up by someone shouting :plain:

How are you?

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 11:53 AM

Hi osc, I am ok thanks, how are you?

Sorry your sleep was interrupted Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 11:55 AM

Thank tamo
I hate this place
How are you?

EDIT: Just realised you said how you were *facepalm*
Have you got much planned for today?

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 12:49 PM

Um l am having a shower.....

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 12:54 PM

That’s good!

I had a shower last night. I hate the showers here. They are so crap!

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 01:04 PM

Do you have your own shower or do you have to share?

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 01:25 PM

We have to share unfortunately!
And the showers are really awful. Takes ages to warm up, floods the floor and basically no water pressure.

one_step_closer 22-01-2021 02:36 PM

The showers in my local ward turn on and off in bursts and then just trickle for a while they're so annoying.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 02:50 PM

Same with the showers here
It is incredibly annoying!

one_step_closer 22-01-2021 02:53 PM

What are you doing today? Avoiding the shower?

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 03:02 PM

Not a lot.
Watching Netflix. Trying to block out someone who hasn't stopped shouting for a cigarette literally all day.
Definitely avoiding the shower! I showered last night so don't need one today.
I'll do some washing tomorrow.

How about you? Up to much?

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 04:16 PM

The rooms in ours have en suites, big plus!; but they flood too.

My godmother rang :)

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 04:20 PM

I don't know why they can't be raised like I normal shower would be. I guess because people may have disabilities and they have to cater to everyone.
One ward in the county has en suites. And only like 10 beds. Here has 18 beds.

That's good tamo :)

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 04:51 PM

We have 2 wards, both with 19 beds

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 04:56 PM

There are 3 female wards in the county. One is closing for a deep clean soon though apparently. So everyone will probably have to go to London as we're under the east London trust.
There are like 5 or 6 male wards. All with en suites!
So unfair!

tamobhuuta 22-01-2021 05:06 PM

Ours are mixed sex which I don't like. Oh, and there're an OAP and PICU wards.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 05:20 PM

Our female picu is in London. The male one is in this county.
I didn't like it when all the wards were mixed. But thats been phased out now.

nonperson 22-01-2021 06:35 PM

Evening folks. =)

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 07:06 PM

Hey np!
How are you?

nonperson 22-01-2021 07:21 PM

Hey Beckie. I'm ok... gearing up for a food shop.

How're you?

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 07:36 PM

Ah the dreaded food shop!
Hope it goes well!

I'm feeling quite physically anxious for literally no reason which is odd.
But other than that I'm ok thanks!

nonperson 22-01-2021 07:40 PM

Can you do something distracting/calming?

Yeah, the dreaded shop. It's been nearly two weeks since I last went though so my cupboards are literally empty. No bread, no biscuits, no cheese, no butter...!

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 07:45 PM

I've been trying that. Just had some lorazepam which should help

Oh no! Really does need doing then!

nonperson 22-01-2021 07:51 PM

I hope it helps.

Yeah, totally been getting the shakes from cheese withdrawals.

not_so_insig 22-01-2021 08:08 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 08:15 PM

Thanks np
Just been out for a walk too which has also helped

I bet! Cheese is life

Hi Dawn

not_so_insig 22-01-2021 08:22 PM

Hi Beckie glad your walk helped.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 08:34 PM

Thank you

How are you?

not_so_insig 22-01-2021 09:01 PM

I am ok thanks Beckie.

Cacoethes 22-01-2021 09:08 PM

Good good

My blood pressure is high again
Probably down to the anxiety

nonperson 22-01-2021 11:06 PM

Food shop complete. =)

Boo to anxiety. =( Hope you can have some restful sleep.
