What will you do with your sister if she visits, Tamo?

Hope the organising is going ok, Alison. At least if things don't all come to plan your old place isn't too far away if you need to leave a few things behind temporarily?

tamobhuuta 20-11-2021 12:51 PM

Just chat, maybe eat - depends what time she comes. But she hasn't confirmed if she's coming yet.

nonperson 20-11-2021 01:25 PM

Well I hope she does. Chatting and eating sounds nice.

The Worst Witch 20-11-2021 03:20 PM

I am gonna leave some stuff here if needs be, can come back for it at some point.

Its gonna be weird leaving the cats here though

nonperson 20-11-2021 03:53 PM

I thought one was going with you?

The Worst Witch 20-11-2021 04:53 PM

Yeah, Soot is coming with me but it'll be weird not having titch and junior about :(

Just wish things were different, but this is general chat so I won't woe in here *wanders off to r/v forum*

tamobhuuta 20-11-2021 04:59 PM


nonperson 20-11-2021 06:32 PM

Yeah I can understand that will be strange. Will you still be able to see them?

The Worst Witch 20-11-2021 07:34 PM

I think so - plan is for V to still see soot at weekends and stuff. We're gonna see how it goes, never had to split custody over animals before.

How has your day been?

nonperson 20-11-2021 07:56 PM

I guess people usually just decide to keep one or the other or neither. Different for everyone though. Both the animals automatically stayed with me when my partner moved out. It's nice that you both care enough about the cats to want to keep seeing them!

My day has been quiet. Just been watching TV mostly while feeling sorry for myself and waiting for my covid test result which still hasn't come through =(

The Worst Witch 20-11-2021 08:05 PM

Having the cold sucks :(. Its so inconvienient!

Did you sort out your insulin supply issues?

nonperson 20-11-2021 08:42 PM

No, I didn't call around any chemists or anything... Will have to phone the GP next week.

The Worst Witch 20-11-2021 09:57 PM

Sounds like a good plan to me :)

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 08:48 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 21-11-2021 10:13 AM


I do not have covid, hurrah! But now can't use that as an excuse not to sort out the insulin situation.

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 10:26 AM

You definitely need to sort out this situation!
*stern look*
But if you end up in hospital, ask to come here, the bed next to me has just become free :tongue2:

nonperson 21-11-2021 11:09 AM

Omg, that would be amazing XD

I rummaged around in the fridge and found some old pen cartridges that are still in date which I could siphon the insulin out of and I've still got one vial left which will last a couple of weeks.

It's a bit worrying when the pharmacist says it could resolve itself tomorrow or in several months... O.o

tamobhuuta 21-11-2021 11:57 AM

Hi people :)

nonperson 21-11-2021 12:51 PM

Hey Tamo. How're you?

one_step_closer 21-11-2021 04:55 PM

Hi people. How are your days going?

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 06:41 PM

That is concerning np! :ermm:

Evening everyone

nonperson 21-11-2021 07:11 PM


Well, if there is a real life apocalypse this will be good practice in learning how to source vital medical supplies...

one_step_closer 21-11-2021 07:18 PM

I hope you get what you need soon after you speak to your GP, NP.

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 07:19 PM


I've already accepted that if there's an apocalypse I'm going to be one of the first to go!

nonperson 21-11-2021 07:32 PM

Same, Beckie. I might have to learn how to make insulin myself or extract it from pigs, assuming any pigs survive...

Thanks Lindsay. I'm going to speak to the chemist again tomorrow and see where they're at before talking to my GP. They never ever understand anything when I've thrown out of the ordinary things at them before. Or even simple questions to be honest...

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 09:04 PM

If my brother survives I'll get him to make you some insulin. I'm sure he could do it. He's made asprin as part of his degree.

nonperson 21-11-2021 09:41 PM

I need to be his friend. Maybe even sooner than an apocalypse =P

Cacoethes 21-11-2021 09:57 PM

Haha! I'll let him know :p

nonperson 21-11-2021 10:14 PM

Survival is all about knowing the right people!

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 09:18 AM

Morning everyone!

I was woken up by someone asking if I wanted breakfast
So I'm not too annoyed
Had a lovely cup of tea. I am sad that the coffee here is gross though
It doesn't even taste like coffee!

tamobhuuta 22-11-2021 12:06 PM

Tea is nice, I've had some too. How are you feeling?

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 02:52 PM

Afternoon all. It was very cold last night.

one_step_closer 22-11-2021 03:02 PM

Afternoon everyone, hope you all have a good day.

Have you managed to speak to anyone yet NP?

How are you feeling today Beckie? That's a shame about the coffee.

Hi Tamo, what are you getting up to today?

Hi Dawn, has the cold eased a bit today or still the same as last night? I think we're meant to get snow at some point this week but that could be a lie.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 03:14 PM

It's much warmer than last night Lindsay. It's great to see you posting. I have yet to venture outdoors but I should post my christmas card to Australia.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 03:43 PM

Posted my card to Australia. It's not too bad outside. Before anyone says it's too early to post Christmas cards Melbourne Airport is experiencing delays due to covid according to Royal Mail's website. Unfortunately the recipient lives in a suburb of Melbourne hence why I am posting it early.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 04:05 PM

Ooh my present to Lorraine has been despatched. I hope she likes it. It's a model of Molly. Entirely hand made.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 04:06 PM

I was feeling ok until earlier when I collapsed in the bathroom. And then work messaged to tell me I need a GP note to say I'm fit for work before I'm allowed back. So stressed

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 04:12 PM

Oh no Beckie! Hope you're better soon.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 04:58 PM

Thanks Dawn

one_step_closer 22-11-2021 05:46 PM

That sounds like a lovely present Dawn. I'd love one of those portraits where they put your dog/cats head on a different regal body. They are quite expensive though.

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time Beckie. You deserve a break. I hope someone can help you get on top of things.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 06:24 PM

Thanks lindsay

How is everyone?

nonperson 22-11-2021 06:46 PM

Oh Beckie that sucks so much. You don't need more stress on top of everything else =(

I've managed to get a prescription for my insulin, just need to find somewhere who has some in stock now... Will have to ring around some pharmacies tomorrow. But I was so shocked that the GP had a script ready for me to collect that I completely forgot to book a flu jab at the same time.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 06:58 PM

Yep. They've just checked my blood pressure too and it's high. 155/96
Fun times

At least you've got the first step done!
Well done!

nonperson 22-11-2021 07:22 PM

Hardly surprising considering the circumstances. Do they think that's why it's high because of stress or anything else?

Thanks. I'm kinda proud of myself. Went to the chemist, talked the old lady behind the desk who didn't have a clue what I was talking about and then walked off...! Spoke to the pharmacist briefly but they hadn't made any progress. I was going to go home but decided to drop by the doctors, see if they had a script for me and they did! So I think that's enough for today. Phone calls tomorrow will be harder...

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 09:44 PM

They didn't even mention it was high!

You did very well and I am proud of you!

tamobhuuta 23-11-2021 11:33 AM

Good morning.

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:35 PM

Morning Tamo, how are you?

Cacoethes 23-11-2021 12:36 PM

You beat me to it this morning!

How are you?

Ninja post lindsay! How are you?

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:36 PM


How are you Beckie?

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:38 PM

You just ninja'd again, it should be your job!

I'm going to the gym group today and I'm quite worried because of my drowsiness. Have an appointment with my psychiatrist after the gym and I'm kind of anxious about it.
