Cacoethes 24-10-2023 11:48 AM

Yep absolutely!

I haven't read the books
My attention span is non existent

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 12:02 PM

Yodel are definitely coming today. Unfortunately it doesn't say a time :angry: . Amazon might be coming the same time as cpn.

one_step_closer 24-10-2023 12:16 PM


Hope everyones appointments go/have gone well.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 12:21 PM

Thanks lindsay!

Cpn is at 1pm and cardiology is 2:45pm

How are you?

one_step_closer 24-10-2023 12:28 PM

Not too long now then.

I would say I hope your CPN is helpful but that might be impossible!

I'm just trying to get through the day.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 12:38 PM

It is definitely impossible XD

Days like that are horrible :(

tamobhuuta 24-10-2023 12:44 PM

Hi guys. My dad came to see me this morning. He brought me coffee from the nespresso machine at home but it was too strong for me so I has to drink some then top it up with milk. Then it was lovely! Also I have washed my hair.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 12:48 PM

Decent coffee is even better in hospital
Ward coffee is awful. I always get my own

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 12:55 PM

I am sorry that you aren't tip top Lindsay.

Yodel came. The tops fit which is a bonus. The only other things that were in there was shoes and pyjama bottoms but I knew that they would fit as they're the same size as my existing ones.

long road 24-10-2023 12:58 PM

I don't read much anymore concentrating has been harder since FND. But in general it is a little easier than when I first developed it, just not right now while I have a head injury!

I hope your CPN isn't unhelpful Beckie. Expecting him to be helpful seems too much but hopefully he won't make things worse.

I hope Amazon don't interrupt your cpn visit Dawn. Hope they come just before so you don't worry about it the whole time your CPN is there.

Wishing you the best to get through your day Lindsay. I am having a pretty difficult day myself.

Yay for coffee Tamo. At least too strong can be fixed. Too weak is worse!

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 01:01 PM

You still feeling rough with it jen?

Looking forward to seeing what stupid **** he comes out with this time XD

tamobhuuta 24-10-2023 01:02 PM

My sister N got me some of those Nescafe caramel latte sachets which, though not a substitute for the real thing, are 1000% better than what the ward provides.

I'm glad your tops fit insig, that's always a relief with online buys.

tamobhuuta 24-10-2023 01:02 PM

Ninja Cacoethes I hope your cpn isn't too useless.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 01:05 PM

Love those sachets!

He hasn't yet called. Tbf, it is only 5 past.

long road 24-10-2023 01:24 PM

A little better than yesterday but still pretty rough. Quite dizzy/ woozy as well as the headache. Painkillers help but don't get rid of it completely.

If it's amusing please share with the class Beckie.

Ooh the sachets sound tasty.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 01:37 PM

Grim. At least it's a little better!

I shall!
If he ever actually calls.....

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 01:46 PM

My cpn came early. Amazon are 8 stops away currently so I don't have to worry about them coming at the same time.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 01:49 PM

What a relief that must be for you

My cpn still has not called and i am irritated
Don't particularly enjoy talking to him but it's still annoying

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 02:05 PM

How annoying Beckie. What a dick.

Amazon have been. I am in pain however :angry:

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 02:06 PM

He even confirmed the time when he called yesterday :plain:

Oh no! That's not good

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 02:11 PM

Yeah it's not good. Will take painkillers.

I have my parents coming later on today.

Time I have lunch.

long road 24-10-2023 02:32 PM

Gah! to your cpn being even more incompetent than usual Beckie.

Sorry to hear you are in pain Dawn I hope the painkillers help. Glad the cpn / Amazon timings worked out Dawn.
Anything exciting for lunch?

I am just finishing watching hunger games 3. My headache is getting worse so considering trying my prescription painkillers and taking a nap.

not_so_insig 24-10-2023 02:40 PM

I had a sandwich. It didn't taste that great.

long road 24-10-2023 02:42 PM

Sad times. Disappointing sandwiches are not a vibe.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 02:57 PM

He still hasn't called so i guess that's not happening
Oh well. Waiting for appointment now!

one_step_closer 24-10-2023 04:05 PM

You should get a photo of your CPN and send it to us all so we can throw darts at him, Beckie. I would personally love to do that.

Cacoethes 24-10-2023 04:52 PM

I'd totally do that tbh XD

At work again lol

tamobhuuta 24-10-2023 05:02 PM

Sorry for your cpn failing Cacoethes.

Shame about the sandwich insig.

How are you feeling lr?

long road 24-10-2023 07:06 PM

Thanks for asking Tamo. Doing a little better post nap still have a headache but more bearable. Vision was blurry when I first woke up but finding it easier to focus now so that was probably FND.

Have ordered a burger and chips for dinner.

How is everyone else doing?

tamobhuuta 24-10-2023 08:09 PM

Im glad your vision is better. I'm waiting for meds then probably bed time.

long road 24-10-2023 08:13 PM

I am in bed already going to rest a bit until it's time for my evening meds on an hour or two. Wanted to watch TV but it seems doing stuff makes my head hurt more at the moment

Hope you can sleep well Tamo.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 12:03 AM

Just got home
Was randomly super busy all shift and rather stressful!

Hopefully everyone is now in bed!

long road 25-10-2023 06:35 AM


I was indeed in bed!

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 08:12 AM


How're you doing today?

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 09:39 AM

Morning guys. How are you? I'm cold.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 09:58 AM

Morning tamo!

It is very cold today!
I've just been out to aldi.

I'm ok. Just really tired.
Also, it is appointment of doom day.

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 10:08 AM

I forget, what's the appointment?

one_step_closer 25-10-2023 10:14 AM

Morning everyone.

It's all drizzly and dull here but has brightened up a tiny bit since I got up.

I hope your appointment goes well, Beckie.

I have mine at 12.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 10:16 AM

ED therapy
Don't have medical monitoring today though because the nurse is away

Thanks lindsay

My appointment is also at 12!
Hope it goes well!

Zurg 25-10-2023 10:18 AM

My goodness!!! O_O appointment of doom does not sound like something particulary enjoyable….. I hope it's not as bad as it sounds <3

It's cold here too. Could be worse though. Many places along the coast were flooded by the sea water during the storm. Now the rainshowers from hell have arrived and more towns are flooded because the small damms can't hold. At least there's no such thing here where i am!!! It's just really dark and rainy :(

one_step_closer 25-10-2023 10:19 AM


one_step_closer 25-10-2023 10:20 AM

Weird was in response to Beckie. Ninja Kat!

I was lucky too, Kat, when it was really rainy from Storm Babet and lots of places were being flooded.

Zurg 25-10-2023 10:26 AM

Yeah, having unwanted water inside your home is not cool at all!!! I had water damage in my old flat. Some peeps were fixing the roof on our block (after a storm, ironically) and the Wind Got strong and they had to get down due to safety. But the roof wasn't finished so it started pouring down with rain inside our flats :( I was pretty close to having a mental breakdown at that point!!!!

Ever since then i have disliked storms even more!!!! >:(

Crossing fingers for your appointment, Beckie. I hope it'll feel more safe and helpful than difficult and exhausting <3

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 10:29 AM

Hey zurg!
Tbh it'll probably be another appointment with someone telling me I'm going to die. So not fun at all!

There were some floods here too!
Not in my area though thankfully!
Oh god the flat rain doesn't sound good!
I get stressed enough when the sink in the men's bathroom leaks and the water starts pouring all over the bar! And through the lights!

Thank you :)

long road 25-10-2023 10:42 AM

I fell back asleep. Feeling a bit more blargh today
May have over done it yesterday.

Cacoethes 25-10-2023 10:46 AM

Plenty of rest today then!
That's an order :tongue2:

not_so_insig 25-10-2023 12:19 PM

Afternoon all. I had another terrible night. Prn did nothing in that respect. But feel much better cold wise so far.

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 12:28 PM

Thinking of people who are hopefully in appointments or have finished.

tamobhuuta 25-10-2023 12:53 PM

Meanwhile, mushroom soup!

I followed orders because I fell asleep again and woke up about half an hour ago.

Hope all appointments went ok and weren't too stressful.

I am having a beans and cheese wrap for lunch.

Then probably going to lie down again and just listen to something
