Total pain in the bum, but better to be safe than sorry.

Also just realised I made 7 phone calls in 5 hours this morning. All time record. *faint!*

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 01:58 PM

That is a lot of phone calls!

nonperson 09-03-2020 02:08 PM

Yep, no more for the rest of the year now.

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 02:28 PM

Have you filled your quota?

nonperson 09-03-2020 03:29 PM

For definite. =P

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 03:34 PM

hey guys! how are you?

today feels like the last month of school ^^

what quota?

nonperson 09-03-2020 04:30 PM

Why the last month of school?

My quota for making phonecalls for the year.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 04:48 PM

I don't really know, it's like its the last week of school-
the air has that energy ^^ *weird answer queen*

ah, mine is solely zero ^^"

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 05:41 PM

Good afternoon everyone!

I'm only getting one visit today, I know I'm lucky to see my family so often.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 05:42 PM

Hey Tamo!

How are you?

Thats good ^^

Why only one today though?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 05:45 PM

Dad couldn't visit this morning because of my sister's therapy and in the week L and my Mum take turns to visit.

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 06:16 PM

That's nice you're getting a visit tamo

I'm kinda glad I have to have a 1:1 nurse at the general hospital or I'd just be sitting here alone for days on end!

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 06:23 PM

Hey C, how are you?

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 06:27 PM

Bored! I've been in the medical hospital for 4 days now and there is nothing to do!
And I have no change of clothes because the staff at the psych ward won't bring them in for me

The shortbread sounds delicious redcat!

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 06:30 PM

Aw, maybe you can find something to do in the RYL arcade?

or maybe play a game with the nurses?

that sucks, why won't they bring them in?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 07:18 PM

Sorry you are stuck, bored in hospital Cacoethes. Are you up to reading? Maybe download an ebook?

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 07:25 PM

Most people call me Beckie, redcat but I don't mind :)

The staff won't bring anything in because they suck
No one else can bring anything because they all live too far away.
It's a psych ward in my 'local' area but it's not actually local to me or my family at all.

I don't really have the concentration for reading atm.
I've been sleeping a lot

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 07:32 PM

If you're sleeping lots your body probably needs it.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 07:50 PM


I think they should check their dictionaries for the word "local" ^^

but if your sleeping alot, then as Tamo said, you probably need it

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 10:46 PM

That's true
The nurse on my 1:1 is one I know well from the wards before so I'm happy about that :)

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 10:55 PM

Are they good company?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 09:39 AM

They were good company tamo

There are distractions and groups and stuff on the psych ward but I've been on a medical ward for 5 days (I think) where nothing much goes on!
No idea when I can go back to the psych ward, even less idea when I can go home!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 11:17 AM

Morning Cacoethes and everyone else.
They got me up for meds at half 8 but now I'm back in bed.

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 01:23 PM

Morning tamo

They woke me up for breakfast. Then meds. Then to have my blood pressure checked a million times.
Then for lunch.
Other than that, I've been asleep!

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 02:09 PM

I had a good surprise this morning - I knew my dad was visiting but my sister came too!

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 03:15 PM

And I still haven't seen a doctor today despite being promised one in 'a couple of hours' at 8:30 this morning....apparently it will be in the next hour now.

Thats a lovely surprise tamo

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 04:46 PM

Thats a great surprise Tamo!

Hey guys, how are you?

Whats Gwent?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 05:24 PM


My 1:1 nurse is going on her break soon and is going to buy me a coke zero :)

How are you?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 07:07 PM

I need to play The Witcher 3
I loved the series on Netflix

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:12 PM

The coke sounds nice, the couple of nice people of the world ^^

ah- still confused but thanks for the explanation, I don't know what "The Witcher" is ^^"

I'm tired, you?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 07:19 PM

She bought me 2 bottles of coke zero :)

The witcher is a book series as well as a series of games and now a TV show

I am also tired

not_so_insig 10-03-2020 07:21 PM

Gwent is an area in Wales so I thought it was a reference to that. It's also an police force so I was kinda confused as I wasn't sure if you were the police.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:21 PM

thats really sweet of her ^^

oooh thank you ^^

and i still have to get through science with my least favorite teacher, and then all of the homework-

what do you do to help calm down anxiety?

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:22 PM

Hey Insig, how are you?

not_so_insig 10-03-2020 07:25 PM

I am annoyed. Basically my neighbour was being antisocial last night so I was very tired this morning and had an sleep deprivation headache. I fell asleep for an hour before which helped. I am hoping there isnt a repeat tonight.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:27 PM

That doesn't sound fun, naps are always good :)

I'll join you ^^"

Any plans for today? well for the rest of today?

one_step_closer 10-03-2020 07:35 PM

*pokes Dawn's neighbour*

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 07:46 PM


My brother and L came to see me, they stayed ages which was lovely.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:53 PM

Oh thank you!

*pokes neighbor* Hey, please don't bug Insig!

That sounds wonderful Tamo, how are you?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 07:54 PM

The psych ward finally brought me some clothes so I've showered and changed clothes and it feels amazing after being in the same clothes for 5 days!!!!

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 07:57 PM

I'm glad you feel better Cacoethes.

I'm not great to be honest, thanks Rose. I *think* I've got a ward review tomorrow.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 07:57 PM

Boo to the psych ward for not bringing them sooner but still cheers to the fact that they brought them in the end

That sounds annoying and frustrating, they really should check their dictionaries, wouldn't you agree?

Hope all goes well Tamo, sorry things aren't great at the moment, sending hugs and love <3

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 08:17 PM

Any plans for the few hours of the day left?

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 08:34 PM

I've got a good long 6 hours full of homework and practice to do :P

I'm only looking forward to the practice minus the frustration of when you can't get the thing right

Then I've got some chores but then it'll be off to bed, hopefully I'll be able to sleep tonight

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 08:35 PM

How are you?

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 08:47 PM

I tend to forget how busy school days are - I don't envy you Rose but i hope you enjoy your practice.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 08:53 PM

Thanks, me too

Well at least we're missing a teacher that I don't like! she makes a lot of sassy comments but shes on maternity leave at the moment, her son was born last night ^^

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 09:48 PM

random question:

do any of you play an instrument?
or used to and still maybe remember something?

Eska 10-03-2020 09:59 PM

Rose I played instruments in school, why?

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 10:01 PM

Hey Eska, how are you?

I was just wondering, how did you deal with pre-concert anxiety?
