Oooo... that makes much sense...

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 01:50 PM

Yeah! It overthinking it does make it worse

shadow-light 18-05-2021 01:58 PM

overthinking is one of my skills :P

you up to much until rounds at 3 then?

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 02:10 PM


There is NOTHING to do
I'm just listening to music atm

shadow-light 18-05-2021 02:14 PM

ye, i'm not doing anything either. Currently watching handmaids tail as seemed like everyone else has seen it

least you've got music to keep your mind occupied i guess

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 02:24 PM

I've seen like one episode of that.
It seems good. Will probably have to get round to watching the whole thing!

Yeah. Don't know what I'd do without music!

tamobhuuta 18-05-2021 04:11 PM

When I was in hospital I listened to music and paced.

I had a good time with my friend, and soon my godmother will phone me. And I need a shower. Busy day!

Cacoethes 19-05-2021 10:01 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 19-05-2021 10:57 AM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 19-05-2021 11:25 AM

Annoyed that I'm still here but apparently I'll be seen on Friday
How are you?

tamobhuuta 19-05-2021 12:09 PM

That is annoying. Feeling a bit anxious but I'm going to pray which usually helps.

Cacoethes 19-05-2021 12:51 PM

That's good

not_so_insig 19-05-2021 02:38 PM

Just an note to say that the dwp are sending out end of tax year summary. The bastards put it in a white envelope :angry:

shadow-light 19-05-2021 02:40 PM

i've heard they have started to use white enveolpes as well as the brown. I saw a blog that explained why, but I cant remmbember what the reason was now

Cacoethes 19-05-2021 02:42 PM


not_so_insig 19-05-2021 02:45 PM

I am always wary of post that uses my full name/initials.

tamobhuuta 19-05-2021 06:14 PM

I look at the back of letters so I'm prepared if it's DWP.

nonperson 19-05-2021 06:35 PM

Evening all. How's everyone?

not_so_insig 19-05-2021 06:36 PM

Unfortunately it didn't say dwp on the back on my letter tamobhuuta.

not_so_insig 19-05-2021 06:37 PM

Hello nonperson. I am in a lot of pain but otherwise good.

tamobhuuta 19-05-2021 06:37 PM

Hi np how are you? I am a bit anxious so I'm eating chocolate. I wish my comfort foods were a bit healthier.

nonperson 19-05-2021 07:29 PM

Chocolate is good, it's definitely ok to have some if it helps!

I'm tired as usual, should probably get to bed early tonight...

tamobhuuta 19-05-2021 08:15 PM

Me too.

tamobhuuta 20-05-2021 09:30 AM

Good morning :) anyone else up?

Cacoethes 20-05-2021 01:25 PM

I've only just woken up.
Had a seizure last night so I feel terrible!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2021 01:28 PM

Sorry you had a seizure *hugs if wanted* do you have anything to do today?

I'm not sure how I am tbh.

Cacoethes 20-05-2021 02:13 PM

Thank you
Nothing to do, no. Apart from washing but the washing machine is playing up again.

Is that good or bad?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2021 04:29 PM

Idk, good and bad.

Cacoethes 20-05-2021 05:01 PM

Have you been up to much today?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2021 05:14 PM

Just packing, we're going away tomorrow.

Cacoethes 20-05-2021 05:54 PM

Anywhere nice?

tamobhuuta 20-05-2021 06:30 PM

The New Forest :) we've been there before, it's nice.

Cacoethes 20-05-2021 07:26 PM

Lovely! I haven't been there in years!

tamobhuuta 21-05-2021 10:27 AM

Good morning. I got up a bit early because I need to finish packing. How is everyone?

shadow-light 21-05-2021 11:56 AM

morning (just)

how be people?

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 11:59 AM

Morning! (1 minute til afternoon as I type this!)

tamobhuuta 21-05-2021 12:01 PM

Hi shadow, hi Cacoethes. How are you?

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 12:10 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Had a shower this morning and feeling much better!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-05-2021 12:14 PM

I'm ok, just got dressed.

shadow-light 21-05-2021 12:19 PM

i'm ok. Job centre has come to a conclusion on my work capacity assesment and put me in the LCWRA (basically new version on ESA support group). I am having mixed feeling about this... but other wise not too bad

anyone up to much?

tamobhuuta 21-05-2021 12:26 PM

I'm going on holiday with my family.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 12:48 PM

That's good though right Hazel?

Yay tamo! Hope you have a marvellous time!

nonperson 21-05-2021 05:47 PM

Evening all. It's finally the weekend!

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 05:51 PM

It is indeed!
I'm just catching up with taskmaster
What you up to?

nonperson 21-05-2021 05:57 PM

I'm woefully behind with Taskmaster... Haven't watched any of the latest series.

I'm currently just watching TV with the cat on my lap.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 06:02 PM

Oh nooo! You must watch!


nonperson 21-05-2021 06:10 PM

I find it hard to be in the mood for it... which sucks because it might help with that mood!

He's moved so now I have no excuse not to go and get changed.

Cacoethes 21-05-2021 06:11 PM

I know what you mean

Gooo and get changed! :p

yes and no... yes as now the job centre can shush for a bit, it will help financially, and I can focus on my PIP claim and getting treatment and stuff sorted

but... my brain has decided that them basically saying I am to ill to even look for work means I'm "broken"

I am aware this is maybe a slightly dramatic reaction, but it is what it is... I think it's just a shock as I never expected them to believe me :laugh: or at the very least I expected them to make it into a bit of a fight

shadow-light 21-05-2021 06:29 PM

I also enjoy taskmaster :D this series has been particularly good too
