Cacoethes 26-05-2021 07:45 PM

It's going to take some getting used to though as everything is opposite to how my old room is!
And it's smaller.

tamobhuuta 26-05-2021 07:50 PM

How confusing.

Cacoethes 26-05-2021 08:00 PM

It is!

I'm finally allowed clothes and bedsheets btw!

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 12:05 PM

Afternoon everyone!

We had a games morning and had an incredibly intense game of jenga!

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 02:41 PM

Where is everyone today?!

shadow-light 27-05-2021 02:46 PM

Ooo quiet in here today...

I got my requested copy of the medical report from the DWP today to find out why they put me in the LCWRA group without afight. So I am working on deciphering that... ALso managed to walk to the post box (3 mile away) to post some PIP stuff WITHOUT having a panic attack!!!

ALso waiting for a GP phone appointment that I booked about 3 weeks ago and cant rememebr why I booked it...

You up to much?

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 03:36 PM

Well done!

Oh that's annoying!

Nope! Need to get my washing and put it in the dryer

tamobhuuta 27-05-2021 03:44 PM

Hi everyone. Busy day all round. I went with my mum and sister to a little village to have a walk round and coffee.

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 03:51 PM

That sounds nice tamo!

shadow-light 27-05-2021 04:06 PM

GP appointment complete, I totally feel like I wasted his time as i can't remember what the appointment was for :laugh: I really need to fix my stupid memory... and before anyone suggests writing stuff down... I have 3 white boards, post-it notes all over, alarms on my phone and a diary already :plain:

yay for socialising coffee walks

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 04:56 PM

I'm the same when it comes to ward round here Hazel!
Think of million things to say but when it comes to it, complete mind blank!

shadow-light 27-05-2021 05:02 PM

annoying isn't it? I seem to do it with any and all professionals... sometimes i think I need to carry a dictaphone with me at all times and then just send them the files rather than having appointments/meetings :laugh:

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 06:33 PM

That is a fantastic idea!

shadow-light 27-05-2021 07:25 PM

possibly not all that practical though :P

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 08:17 PM

Unfortunately not!

My body is so tired but my brain is saying 'no sleep, only zoooooom!!!'

shadow-light 27-05-2021 08:22 PM

oh it's never fun when the brain and body disagree about tiredness levels... when brain says zzzzzz and body says zoom I tend to go for a long run, not so much an option for you though I'd guess. erm... music and a solo disco dance session? Or, just lay down and hope the body gets on board

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 08:24 PM

I could run up and down the corridor but I think I'd probably end up knocking people over! It's a very small ward!
It's supper soon so I'll have a hot chocolate then my meds and I should be able to sleep!

shadow-light 27-05-2021 08:27 PM

i'm also not sure how the staff may interperate your running up and door the corridor :P

Cacoethes 27-05-2021 08:30 PM

Very true! They already think I'm 'too happy' XD

shadow-light 27-05-2021 08:32 PM

never happy staff types are they

though all your buying sprees probably aren't helping with that conclusion :P

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 10:00 AM

Nope! If you don't talk and laugh you're depressed, if you smile and laugh then you're 'too happy!'

Yeah probs not...

Morning guys!

shadow-light 28-05-2021 10:15 AM

it's like they have never heard of masking :P

however... there is such a thing as "too happy", and I guess it may be harder to always see where the line is in comparison to "too sad". Sometimes feels liek walking a tightrope doesn't it... trying to stay on the line inbetween to keep the professional types from moaning

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 10:37 AM

Indeed!! :p

They're always moaning at me for something!

How are you Hazel?

one_step_closer 28-05-2021 12:21 PM

Afternoon everyone, how are you all?

not_so_insig 28-05-2021 12:23 PM

Lindsay! *glomps*

I am ok thanks. Hope you're ok.

one_step_closer 28-05-2021 12:25 PM

Thanks Dawn :-D

I'm glad you're ok. What are you getting up to today?

I'm not great but lacking in support.

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 12:46 PM

Hi lindsay and dawn!

I'm good thanks! Hoping to go home today but I don't know when the cpa meeting is!

Sorry you're not feeling great lindsay.
It's terrible how they've left you with no support.
I wish we could all go over there and give them a kick up the backside!!

one_step_closer 28-05-2021 03:02 PM

Thanks Beckie!

I see you're getting home today (will delete if you don't want it posted here).

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 03:02 PM

Yes I am! I don't know when exactly but I am so excited!

one_step_closer 28-05-2021 03:05 PM

Will you be doing all the good things and keeping yourself safe? This is a chance to get back to doing the things you enjoyed before and maybe adding some new things too. Waiting on discharge to be sorted is one of the worst parts of being in hospital, I'm always like just hurry up and let me go!

tamobhuuta 28-05-2021 03:54 PM

Sorry you're not feeling great lindsay.

Hear hear!

tamobhuuta 28-05-2021 03:55 PM

I hope discharge is positive for you Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 05:13 PM

Yes I will lindsay!
It's all good :)
I'm all packed. Got my meds. Just waiting on the ward manager who is going to drive me home!

Thanks tamo :)

one_step_closer 28-05-2021 05:18 PM

That's kind of the ward manager. I hope you can settle in tonight and get back to a good normal soon.

nonperson 28-05-2021 05:36 PM

Woo for being allowed home! =)

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 06:39 PM

I am back! So pleased!

nonperson 28-05-2021 07:39 PM

Celebratory takeaway time?

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 07:42 PM

Way ahead of you!
The most exciting development since I've been away is that McDonald's now deliver!
So guess what I've just had?! :p

shadow-light 28-05-2021 08:32 PM

i am really suprised that it took a global pandemic for McDonalds to just onto the delivery bandwaggon

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 08:34 PM

Oh it's been on delivery for ages!
Just not in my area! Ubereats have finally recognised us!

shadow-light 28-05-2021 08:36 PM

news to me!

Though in fairness i rarely have takeaways and live in the middle of nowhere :laugh:

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 08:41 PM

I'm in a small town but since lockdown, a lot more restaurants have decided to go on the delivery apps. And I guess ubereats have only just aquired enough restaurants to be worth delivering here!

nonperson 28-05-2021 08:45 PM

Hehe, knew you'd be on the case, Beckie.

Cacoethes 28-05-2021 08:54 PM

You know me so well! :p

nonperson 29-05-2021 09:38 AM

Morning everyone. How're you all doing?

Cacoethes 29-05-2021 09:44 AM

Morning np!
I'm good thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-05-2021 11:01 AM

I'm ok thanks. It's the weekend so I'm hoping to watch more Once Upon a Time with L.

Cacoethes 29-05-2021 11:01 AM

That will be nice tamo!

I've just seen the crisis team for the day.
He was nice!

tamobhuuta 29-05-2021 11:08 AM

That's good, are they going to look after you properly?
