It's not so windy here just very wet.

Your night meds, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-11-2023 09:22 PM

Yeah night meds. At home they're my dinner meds.

tamobhuuta 02-11-2023 09:38 PM

I've had my meds :)

long road 02-11-2023 10:03 PM

It's been a bit of a day. Good things, bad things, emotional things, lots of things

But I think on balance ok? Maybe.

The storm blew/ a wave swept a 4x4 off the seafront and on the beach at one of the nearby seaside towns!

tamobhuuta 02-11-2023 10:18 PM

That's some wind!

Good night alll.

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 07:18 AM

Morning everyone!

long road 03-11-2023 10:29 AM

I am here now!

Been awake a while just not online

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 10:29 AM


That's fair enough.
You ok?

long road 03-11-2023 10:32 AM

Eh. Sort of ok. In quite a bit of pain this morning.

Got GP appointment at 12:45pm. Routine one to tie up a load of loose ends. But I expect he will ask about mentals.

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 10:36 AM

Hopefully the appointment is helpful

long road 03-11-2023 10:41 AM


It is now coffee time.

I need to shower really as haven't in quite a few days but it seems a lot of energy.

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 10:46 AM

Showering is a lot of effort

long road 03-11-2023 10:54 AM

But I also don't want to be smelly in GP surgery. It's a conundrum

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 10:55 AM

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 11:08 AM

Morning tamo
How are you?

long road 03-11-2023 11:11 AM

Morning Tamo!

tamobhuuta 03-11-2023 11:23 AM

Still very sore. But Dad will be here soon. How are your days going?

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 11:23 AM

What's everyone up to today?

Will you get a costa tamo?

My day so far has consisted of me not being able to taste anything (i can now)
And waiting for a scary appointment.
The taxi is picking me up at 12:15 so I'm in waiting mode

long road 03-11-2023 12:19 PM

I managed a shower. Now sitting listening to sea shanties. Then GP at 12:45pm.

I hate waiting mode Beckie, I ma tryin not to enter it myself.

Cacoethes 03-11-2023 12:49 PM

Sea shanties are awesome

I decided to go and get a piercing to take up some time and also relieve stress and also a shiny new piercing!
Taxi will be here in about 20 mins

one_step_closer 03-11-2023 01:10 PM

Afternoon everyone. Good luck with your appointments.

Tamo, you're lucky. My local ward doesn't start night meds till about 10pm and. the mens dorms get done first so the women have to wait ages.

tamobhuuta 03-11-2023 01:40 PM

That really sucks osc.

Thinking of people with appointments.

I had a nice time with my dad, he brought me nice coffee from home. I have washed my hair and prepared for hair removal tomorrow. I need to tumble dry some of my clothes because my hot water bottle leaked on them.

Are you up to anything osc?

long road 03-11-2023 04:24 PM

Appointment went well.

Then went and had a roast dinner at garden centre, now tired and full of food so going to attempt a nap

one_step_closer 03-11-2023 05:13 PM

Is the ward not too warm for a hot water bottle, Tamo? I hope your day has continued well.

I'm glad your appointment went well Jen and you had a nice lunch.

I just had to go to Asda for cat litter mostly then came home and washed my hair and hoovered. Managed to sit and do some anagrams for a bit.

tamobhuuta 03-11-2023 06:15 PM

Osc, the ward us quite cool but the hot water bottle was for my sore shoulders and neck. The nurse has said they'll get the doctor out just to check.

one_step_closer 03-11-2023 06:54 PM

Oh right. I usually get sore in hospital from sitting and lying on bed so much. I hope everything's ok and your pain settles.

tamobhuuta 03-11-2023 07:00 PM

Apparently the doctor they phoned denied being the on call doctor so Reception are trying to find who is!

Accidentally Abstract 03-11-2023 10:41 PM

Evening all, how are we doing tonight? I have just read to catch up and hope you're all doing okay and having a restful evening.

I've finally started writing the book chapter - it's due on Monday. Nothing like doing things at the last minute! But I have at least now started and written a couple of pages and sent them off to my colleague to tell me if I'm on the right lines.

I had the mother of all meltdowns on Wednesday night, it was quite something. I'm still pretty tired now but not too bad. Glad it's the weekend, though I kinda need to fill it with writing the chapter and supposedly also studying..?! There are way too many things going on and I need real life hugs but don't really have anyone to give them. :( Also, I really hope my new job is a positive move. It's so weird to think that I'm going to be leaving my current job in 3 weeks.

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 09:00 AM

Morning everyone

long road 04-11-2023 09:03 AM

Know it's not as good as real life hugs but sending virtual one Luce xx

My nap ended up being me sleeping until 11pm getting up briefly to eat cereal and take meds and then going back to sleep again until 7am. So around 15 hours of sleep. Not really complaining but it does feel a bit odd.


Cacoethes 04-11-2023 09:12 AM

A long sleep can be a bit disorientating!

long road 04-11-2023 10:12 AM

Yeah had some rather disturbing dreams mixed in as well.

But I am awake now. So trying not to dwell on bad dreams.

Made apple, sultana and cinnamon porridge for breakfast again which was tasty. Have coffee.

How was fallout boy last night Beckie?

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 10:20 AM

That's never fun


Omg it was amazing!
So glad i managed to go!
It was nice to escape reality for an evening.
My voice is a little hoarse from singing/shouting along though XD

long road 04-11-2023 10:33 AM

So happy you got to go and enjoy yourself!
Losing your voice is a sign it was a good gig!

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 10:36 AM

Thank you!
Was ?34 for 4 beers though!
4 obviously watered down budweisers. Not even a good beer!
A paid though, because i bought her train ticket.
And we got mini wines for the train.

tamobhuuta 04-11-2023 10:55 AM

I'm glad you had such a good time Cacoethes.

And I'm glad you got sleep lr.

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 10:57 AM

Thanks tamo!

How are you this wet, grey morning?

Zurg 04-11-2023 11:24 AM

Morning all :)
Woah, Fall out boy, Beckie???? I'd have loved that!!! Their music always makes my mood a bit brighter.
Glad to see you all survived the storm.
It's grey and cool-ish here. I'm going to visit a friend soon. She has a cat. So maybe i'm mostly going to visit her cat… ;)

tamobhuuta 04-11-2023 11:29 AM

Sore and sleepy. Had a good cry to the nice hca last night.

tamobhuuta 04-11-2023 11:30 AM

Enjoy your kitty visit.

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 11:43 AM

Morning zurg!

Yess it was so good!
I wouldn't have changed a single thing on the set list either!
Lots of old songs too!

Hope you get some kitty cuddles!

Crying can be very cathartic.
I'm glad there was a nice hca in

one_step_closer 04-11-2023 11:44 AM

Morning everyone.

Take care of yourself, Luce. *hugs*

I hope your sleep helps you to have a better day, Jen.

Glad you enjoyed yourself, Beckie.

I hope the cry helped, Tamo, and you have a good day today.

Visiting a friend/their cat sounds fun, Kat! Enjoy.

tamobhuuta 04-11-2023 11:45 AM

I thought my mum was late but I just checked my diary and she's coming at 11am, not 10.30am

tamobhuuta 04-11-2023 11:47 AM

Hi osc,how are you?

Cacoethes 04-11-2023 11:53 AM

Hey lindsay
How're you doing today?

Not too long to wait now tamo!
Hope you have a nice visit

long road 04-11-2023 11:53 AM

Sheesh ?34 for 4 beers now that is scalping!
I guess alcohol is how the venues make their money.

long road 04-11-2023 11:54 AM

Also hello everyone!

one_step_closer 04-11-2023 11:59 AM

Enjoy your visit, Tamo.

I'm trying not to be freaked out about having to get through yet another day.
