Cacoethes 03-07-2022 07:35 PM

Go for it, I might start giving out awards for funniest post report.

I'm training some kid who was born in 2001 wtf and she didn't know how to use a normal landline phone.

Argh, oh gosh Zurg, that's horrible :(

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 08:07 PM

It wasn't that emoji that i was thinking of jenna! I was certain there was a smaller one!
But a lot of weird things have been happening today so i have probably completely made that up!

That's mental! Who doesn't know how to use a landline?!

Pi.R^2 03-07-2022 08:27 PM

I assume it wasn't this one either but still, it's fun: :ninjabanana:

Cacoethes 03-07-2022 08:29 PM

It was not but i am very much enjoying it!

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 07:14 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 11:17 AM

Good morning :)

How are you?

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 02:01 PM

Afternoon everyone, how are your days going?

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 02:18 PM

I am annoyed. I had planned to go to the city but I woke up too late as one of the places I wanted to go shuts at 3. Between bus times and the time it takes to walk there (my local city is like a donut) it would have been shut by the time I got there. I cant go tomorrow as one of the places shuts on a Tuesday plus I have tesco and my cpn.

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 02:26 PM

That's annoying, Dawn. Will you be able to fit it in on another day this week?

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 02:49 PM

No i doubt it. I might have an parcel coming on Wednesday via courier and I have my hearing voices group on Thursday. My hearing voices group finishes just before 3 and once again between buses means I won't have time to go before since the place i want to go to is only open between 12 and 3. My hearing voices group starts at just before 1 but it can take as long as twenty minutes to actually get in the building (you have to be buzzed in and the staff are very slow at doing so).

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 04:08 PM

How frustrating.

I had a bath but my mum says I mustn't again because I've had a seizure.

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 04:13 PM

Oh dear tamobhuuta hope you're ok?

one_step_closer 04-07-2022 05:17 PM

Do baths trigger seizures for you Tamo? I hope you're doing ok.

Better luck next week then, Dawn.

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 06:12 PM

Baths are not good for people with seizures because if you happen to have a seizure in the bath, you will drown.

Hello everyone!

not_so_insig 04-07-2022 07:30 PM

Thanks for explaining Beckie.

I managed to cook my tea and do my dishes so I feel as though I have achieved something today.

Cacoethes 04-07-2022 07:37 PM

Well done Dawn :)

Jasmine is at her first ever concert! One of my brother's has taken her. Olivia rodrigo who she is OBSESSED with!
I got the tickets for her birthday which is next week.
Can't believe i have a nearly 10 year old! *is old*

tamobhuuta 04-07-2022 07:52 PM

Sorry, I meant I have had a seizure, a while ago, but if you have had even one you're not meant to risk it. I'm ok, I didn't have a seizure in the bath :)

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 06:19 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 09:51 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 10:00 AM

Hey tamo
I'm ok thanks.
Just waiting for tattoo/piercing place to open!
Got a full day tattoo and piercing check!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 10:08 AM

I hope everything is OK. I'm ok. I'm hoping my dad will make a pot of tea in a minute.

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 10:10 AM


That would be nice!

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 11:08 AM

We had tea and I've had breakfast. Next I'm going to do the dishes.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 11:54 AM

Just popping in to say hi and hope everyones having a good day. I need to leave for the gym group although no one has phoned to do the covid questions so I'll need to phone them and see if the group is on.

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 12:42 PM

I hope you can get through to someone Lindsay.

I have a busy day today. Tesco, my cpn and my parents are visiting today. Thankfully not all at once. I think I am going to be peopled out!

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 01:08 PM

I got through to someone who knew who was taking the group and said sorry they didn't call, they're really short staffed. They said they'd pass on that I was coming to the group. I didn't make it though. It's hard being outside and especially waiting on a bus. I was really anxious and had lots going on inside my head and scary things in this world and the other word so I had to come home. I'm a failure. I phoned the office to say I actually couldn't come. I hope the person who was taking the group doesn't phone me. I'm being battered from all sides and inside and outside.

I hope everything goes well for you Dawn and you can have some time away from people when everything is done.

tamobhuuta 05-07-2022 01:19 PM

Sorry you had such a hard time osc. Take care of yourself this afternoon.

I hope your day goes well insig.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 01:32 PM

Thanks Tamo.

How are you getting on?

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 02:19 PM

Thankfully tesco came early in the hour so I have put everything away now. I got Lorraine's Christmas present too today. I know it's early but I was scared that by the time December came around they wouldn't have the ideal gift in stock. I got a bee themed coffee cup and a honeycomb shaped memo board. She likes bees and insects so I know that she will like it.

Thanks tamobhuuta and Lindsay. I have about an hour before my cpn comes (that's if she's not late) so I can relax.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 02:21 PM

That sounds like a really nice gift. Good logic too, it doesn't matter if you bought it early that's one thing sorted. I hope it goes well with your CPN. I could never relax if I was waiting for my CPN!

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 02:34 PM

I am nervous at the cmht but been as my cpn is coming to my home then I am ok.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 02:52 PM

I'm glad that allows you to not feel anxious. Does she always visit you at home?

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 02:53 PM

She usually does. For ages I didnt have her visiting at home as she was without a car.

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 03:18 PM

My cpn didn't come. They sent a stranger. I am not in the mood for strangers today especially as they didn't lmk.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 04:46 PM

That's not good of them not letting you know. Did you manage to talk to the CPN?

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 05:08 PM

No apparently my cpn is off. If they lmk beforehand I would have been less pissed off or if they sent somebody I know (I know 5 other cpns). I have the hearing voices group at the cmht on Thursday so I will mention it to the group leader to see if she can do something.

one_step_closer 05-07-2022 05:12 PM

Are you due your depot? If so will you be ok to wait?

Cacoethes 05-07-2022 05:38 PM

Hey guyyss!

not_so_insig 05-07-2022 05:51 PM

Yes I am due my depot and I will be ok to wait.

Cacoethes 06-07-2022 06:30 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 06-07-2022 11:17 AM

Morning Beckie, how are you? 6.30am is quite early to be on here!

not_so_insig 06-07-2022 12:31 PM

Afternoon all. I have been swimming today. Think it's gonna be the last one until September as I dont like going when the kids are off.

Cacoethes 06-07-2022 03:14 PM

I woke up at 6am lindsay!

I'm ok thanks.
Got to leave work 4 hours early!

How are you?

not_so_insig 06-07-2022 03:24 PM

That's good you managed to leave early Beckie. Are you going out later or are you staying at home?

one_step_closer 06-07-2022 03:29 PM

That's a shame the kids put you off going swimming, Dawn but I can understand. Will you be replacing swimming with something else?

What are you doing with your extra time, Beckie?

I managed to go to the walking group. It was just me and a support worker. There are only 2 other people who go but recently they haven't been coming. It's the same with the gym group. I'm worried they might be stopped.

Cacoethes 06-07-2022 03:34 PM

I have glow beatz later :)
Have you got anything planned dawn?

I'm watching criminal minds lol
And i need to put the washing away

Well done for going lindsay
Hopefully they will start coming again

one_step_closer 06-07-2022 03:39 PM

Sounds good Beckie. Do you have a lot of washing to put away? I hope you enjoy glow beatz later on.

not_so_insig 06-07-2022 03:52 PM

No I haven't got anything planned other than cook tea. Not sure what I will have yet. It's ryl bin night but I have taken the recycling out.
