Also a more legit method is t hold your breath. Or to gargle with water.

Ive been getting better all day and then I get home and I can't breathe and keep coughing up nasty stuff.

Cacoethes 21-05-2018 09:22 PM

It's really pi*sing me off now!

Thats not good Lillie :/
Have you got any cough sweets/medicine that you could have?

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 09:23 PM

Oh Lillie, that's not fun. I hope you manage to sleep okay tonight.

I hope they disappear soon Beckie, hiccups are so annoying!

I hope you sleep well tonight Ducky!

I'm tired! And still not home. And my right eye feels like it might explode for some reason!

Cacoethes 21-05-2018 09:25 PM

Thanks Hannah
I think they are slowing down!

I had the same earlier Hannah!
Awful feeling.
Do you have any painkillers?

chinahorse 21-05-2018 09:30 PM

uhh thats not good at all Hannah! I legit have nothing to suggest for eyeball issues :S massage your temple?

I have some decongestants Beckie, which I should take along with evening meds and go to bed. Ive been awake since like half 4.
And thanks Hannah, I hope I do too and the same for you!

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 09:31 PM

That's good! Fingers crossed they'll stop soon!

I do but it doesn't really hurt, just feels really weird! And my train is delayed! I am absolutely refusing to do this again, I'd rather have my pay cut tbh!

Cacoethes 21-05-2018 09:31 PM

Hope they help Lillie

Im off to bed.
Hope you all manage to get a decent sleep!
Night all!

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 09:31 PM

Ninja Lillie! That sounds like a very good plan, and I really hope it helps!

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 09:32 PM

Sleep well Beckie!

chinahorse 21-05-2018 09:49 PM

I don't blame you hannah. Makes everything sk much more stressful and makes the day a lot longer.

I'm in bed and have taken meds. Which is sort of progress.

Serendipity. 21-05-2018 09:54 PM

That is definite progress! Hope you can sleep soon :)

I shall be home about 10.30. After leaving work at 7. Not impressed! But nearly there! And my eye feels a bit less explosive!

not_so_insig 21-05-2018 09:56 PM

My stomach still hurts. It's eased a bit since this morning but still ouchy. Fingers crossed that I can sleep tonight.

nonperson 22-05-2018 12:21 AM

I woke up a little while ago to Graham Norton on the TV and for a few moments was convinced it was Friday night.

How disappointed am I... =(

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 12:29 AM

Oh no! That really is quite tragic! :(

I hope you can get back to sleep okay!

nonperson 22-05-2018 12:41 AM

It really is tragic. ='(

Suppose I should attempt more sleep, but I've just finished off my half eaten dinner and now just don't want to move upstairs. =(

Lots of sad sulky faces, sorry! =(

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 12:50 AM

Don't be, I feel your pain!! Sleep is good though so I hope you can move upstairs eventually!

I am awake. I do not know why. This is a bit ridiculous! (I realise RYL-ing probably won't help but in my defence I do have a screen filter thingy on so it isn't the worst! That's what I am telling myself anyway!)

nonperson 22-05-2018 12:58 AM

Ah that reminds me I have a night setting on my screen, makes it less blue which is better for sleep, apparently.

Buttons. 22-05-2018 03:54 AM

Hope you managed to get some sleep.

Early morning all :)

chinahorse 22-05-2018 06:29 AM

Now it's early morning buttons! Was still the middle of the night when you posted.

Hope you all managed to get some sleep.

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 08:18 AM

Morning! Hope you all got some sleep!

I slept rather well once I got to sleep :)

What are you all up to today?

Buttons. 22-05-2018 08:24 AM

It was technically morning Lillie :P

Glad you slept well Serendipity.

I plan to go to the shop for a few bits and bats and rest other than that, you?

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 09:21 AM

Morning guys

Aubergine 22-05-2018 09:43 AM


I had such a good sleep. :)

How are you?

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 09:52 AM

That's good Aubergine!
You needed it!

Im ok.
Just on way for clozapine bloods.

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:00 AM

I really, really did. No sleep + a super busy day at work = a not very fun time.

Oh how fun. I hope it goes OK! You get on well with the nurses, don't you?

I'm having a camara down my throat on Friday. Bit nervous. Going to go for sedation though!

nonperson 22-05-2018 10:08 AM

I had weird dreams about a zombie apocalypse once I eventually went to bed. =(

not_so_insig 22-05-2018 10:35 AM

I was sleeping until my nurse decided to phone me. Still my meds are now ready (I have been re prescribed a medication that I used to take) so I guess that it's important.

My body is being a troll this morning. Not got stomach ache but it's another problem.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 10:38 AM

Yeah the nurses are aweosme
Always some quality banter

I've had that done Aubergine.
It's actually ok!
You don't even really remember it afterwards

Zombies are scary :/

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:47 AM

Hey Person and Dawn! :)

Thanks Beckie. I just phoned to see what medication they use for sedation. With midazolam and fentanyl in my system, I probably really won't remember it! Haha.

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:50 AM

Remploy lady phoned me and said she is really proud of me and I should be proud of myself, because I am a professional and do an excellent job. :)

not_so_insig 22-05-2018 10:51 AM

Hey Ducky.

I legit don't know what to have for tea tonight. Might go for Domino's because it's two for Tuesday!

not_so_insig 22-05-2018 10:52 AM

That's great Ducky.

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:54 AM

Domino's sounds great, Dawn! :D

Thank you!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 10:56 AM

That's fantastic aubergine :)

Aubergine 22-05-2018 11:09 AM

Thanks Beckie! :)

I'm still in my bed. It's glorious!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 11:42 AM

Haha! Lucky you!

On bus now.
I have a low white blood count so have to go back on Thursday for another test.
Stupid body!

Aubergine 22-05-2018 11:47 AM

Oh dear! Stupid body indeed! Bodies are funny things. Will keep my fingers crossed that all is OK on Thursday.

I'm so lazy. :P But it's not a "I'm too miserable to get out of bed" thing, it's a "snuggling with the cat under my duvet is lovely and I really don't want to move" kind of thing. :D

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 12:03 PM

I hope your body fixes itself Beckie!

That's not lazy Ducky, you deserve some rest!

I have had a driving lesson where I successfully avoided killing anyone! Now I don't know what to do with myself!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 12:29 PM

Thanks guys!

I agree with Hannah, not lazy!!

Woo well done!
That's the sign of a good lesson :p

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 12:55 PM

It is, isn't it?! I really don't know how I've managed it :P

Guys guys guys. I am celebrating today as I've just had an email from the uni I'm going to saying I'll be nominated forthe bursary and suggesting I send my application asap (I already have). This is good news. This means I might be able to EAT!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 01:28 PM

Yay that's brilliant!!!

Aubergine 22-05-2018 01:34 PM

Thank you! I enjoyed my duvet morning, but had to get up to get ready for work. :'(

Yay Hannah! You are awesome! :D

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 01:36 PM

Aww hope work goes ok aubergine!

Ive just seen my psych in Subway lolz

Aubergine 22-05-2018 01:39 PM

Haha! Oh dear. :P

I see staff from the ward quite a lot, and my psych when he visits the ward. I hide from them mostly. The hospital I work in is on the same grounds as the ward I've been sent to. And psychiatris liaison wander past the pharmacy quite frequently! Hah. It's weird, but they usually just smile and walk on. They have seen me in some states. :wow:

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 01:51 PM

Must be a bit awkward!
Even the 'local' psych wards are an hours drive so I don't have that issue!

I've got f*cking hiccups again :plain:

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 02:08 PM

Health professionals should have their own separate planet so patients don't have to bump into them in shops etc.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 02:10 PM

I agree!

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 03:00 PM

Haha I agree! Though it wouldn't solve the issue for health professionals who are service users I suppose!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 03:13 PM

There can be a separate planet for them

I was really nervous first time round with that as well but with the sedation I promise you it is not as bad as it sounds, you probably won't remember much of it and believe me I was terrified first time but I swear on my dog's life it's nowhere as bad as you imagine it will be, do understand it's scary though.

Ha ha I still remember one of the psych nurses I worked with as a student nurse being a nurse on a psych ward I landed up in-aaaaawkward :P
