That is a bit awks!!

I got assesed in A&E by a psych nurse who also happened to be one of my tutors at college!
Who also decided to tell Health class about an 'unnamed student' who she had to assess and had psychosis and depression and used it as a teaching aid.

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 04:11 PM

Beckie that sounds awkward as hell! Unless you weren't in the class at the time, maybe that wouldn't be as awkward.

Maybe a better plan than professionals having a separate planet would be that they have to wear GPS trackers and patients/clients get a warning on their phone when a professional they don't want to bump into is near.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 04:20 PM

I wasn't in the class luckily!
But I was told about it by several people who knew it was me! :/

That's a genius idea!

not_so_insig 22-05-2018 05:23 PM

Right then Domino's ordered! I got two pizzas.

Buttons. 22-05-2018 05:39 PM

What an unthinking bitch.

Hope you enjoy dominoes Dawn.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 05:43 PM

Enjoy your pizza dawn!

I also have pizza tonight.
Its a supermarket one though.
Can't afford the luxury of dominoes this week unfortunately!!

nonperson 22-05-2018 05:43 PM

I want to try Dominos' new cheesy bacon wedges. =)

I also want my Amazon parcel that was delivered "to me" yesterday to turn up. >.<

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 05:47 PM

Ooo cheesy bacon wedges sound amazing!

Amazon can suck sometimes

nonperson 22-05-2018 05:50 PM

They suck most of the time... but there's a chance it might be other people that suck because they expect me to know where my parcel is and to come and get it. But if Amazon says it was delivered to me then how am I supposed to knoooooow.

I ordered a new screen protector for my phone cos I smashed the old one to bits on Saturday and so I'm desperate for it to turn up before I accidentally smash my unprotected phone!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 05:51 PM

I'm not sure what I would do in that situation
I've been mostly lucky with them

nonperson 22-05-2018 05:54 PM

I might email a few work people tomorrow and ask them if it's been dumped in any of their workshops. That has happened before. =(

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 05:56 PM

Good plan.
That is really awful!

nonperson 22-05-2018 06:02 PM

And the excuse is that they can't find my house, but if they turned around they would see it! People think they're being helpful by taking the parcels in sometimes too, which is honestly nice of them, but if I don't get it for another two days what's the point of Prime delivery! I'd rather they just directed the driver to my house so it can be left in my Safe Place like I just want it to be!!

Argh, I'm ranting... sorry!

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:07 PM

No need to apologise!
That is really frickin annoying!

I have a designated safe place but the last few deliveries they've left with neighbours.

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:07 PM

Sounds ridiculous np.

Also Beckie next to no one can afford Dominoes! I tend to go for pizza delivery company tenner at most.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:08 PM

Yeah dominoes are stupidly expensive!!


nonperson 22-05-2018 06:10 PM

Dominos is so worth the money though. =P

I also think Dominos is a well known and super effective cure for hiccups. ;-)

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:11 PM

It is worth it
I am legit broke though so can't get one today :(
Still looking forward to my asda pizza though!

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:12 PM

Not worth it imo.#

Take small sips of water Beckie it's not exactly a tragedy :P

not_so_insig 22-05-2018 06:12 PM

Domino's was yummy though I am stuffed! I have a lot of pizza left though and one pizza dip. Buffalo chicken is spicy so if you don't like spicy food then I would avoid.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:13 PM

It is a tragedy!
I NEVER get hiccups and now I've had them like 4 times in 2 days and it's awful!!

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:16 PM

I will swap you hiccups for potentially broken leg?

Dawn I love spicy stuff. Zed does a spicy lasgane that is pretty much my favourite food.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:18 PM

Yep that's cool
Would get me out of doing stuff for a while :tongue2:

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:20 PM

Oh well then *swaps*

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:22 PM


one_step_closer 22-05-2018 06:25 PM

Are we opening a swap shop here?

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:26 PM

Apparently so :P I don't mind hiccups in exchange. For a start swallow three times and they're gone.

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 06:31 PM

Hiccups in animals are cute. But I wonder if they are so confused about what is happening to them.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:35 PM

And you did not think to mention a cure for hiccups before we swapped??!!

It was really freaky when I was pregnant, I could actually feel Jasmine hiccuping at times.

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 06:49 PM

Think you've been given a dodgy deal there Beckie!

Hiccuping inside baby sounds really freaky.

Buttons. 22-05-2018 06:53 PM

Hey I gave the remedy....eventually. Mum said when she was pregnant with me she could feel me hiccup. Also apparently when she had a hot drink I used to hiccup or move at least as well.

Eska 22-05-2018 06:54 PM

Good evening :)

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 06:55 PM

It is really f*cking weird!
Hot drinks and very cold drinks tended to cause it!

Off to slimming world now.
Super anxious of doing pay in but no going back now!

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 06:56 PM

Hi Eska, how are you?

Good luck Beckie, hope it's not as anxiety provoking as you imagine it to be.

Serendipity. 22-05-2018 07:23 PM

Hope it goes well Beckie!

Eska 22-05-2018 07:31 PM

Hope it goes well Beckie!

I'm doing ok thanks Lindsay. Work was quiet but not bad, I ordered myself a pair of shoes so they should arrive in the next couple of days. How about you?

Hannah, how's your evening?

one_step_closer 22-05-2018 07:39 PM

What kind of shoes? Are you doing much this evening?

I'm a bit blah but might do some reading then find something to watch and hope I sleep ok.

Hi Hannah, how are you?

Eska 22-05-2018 07:50 PM

Approach shoes, for climbing/scrambling - the women's Scarpa Gecko. They're half price and I get staff discount on top of that so good times :)

Reading sounds good! Do you have a book on the go at the moment?

chinahorse 22-05-2018 08:24 PM

Bargain Eska!!

Hey guys :)

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 08:50 PM

Hello guys!
Slimming world went well.
Weight not changed but managed to do the pay ins without incident!
Just got flustered at one person who gave me 10 but then thought it would be easier to give me another 1.90 in exact change for a product which prompted more maths skills than I could handle in such a situation!
She was nice about it though.
So yeah.

That's a good deal eska!

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:21 PM

Sounds like you did great, Beckie!

chinahorse 22-05-2018 10:23 PM

Glad it went well beckie. With change if you get stuck start at the price then pick up the change until you hit the amount they gave you. That's what I do. Or I blame being blonde and a receptionist and say something like I don't wanna cut you short so I'm just going to check on the calculator. Most people are nice when you phrase it that way.

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:24 PM

Hey Lillie. :)

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 10:27 PM

Thanks guys :)
I just said sorry for being flustered and that my maths is terrible!
She said it was ok though and that it was her fault for giving me so much change!

How are you two?

chinahorse 22-05-2018 10:36 PM

So you handled it well beckie :)

Hi aubergine, how's things?

I'm so so. Have my voice sort of back but pretty sure I have a chest infection and a UTI. Saw my new cpn today. And got some surgery time. Had to go to management about a colleague though and feel like the worst human alive over it.

Cacoethes 22-05-2018 10:40 PM

Yep I had no issues at all apart from that!

Have you seen a Gp about it yet Lillie?
Infections are no fun
I don't know why you had to go to management but I'm sure it was justified!

Im off to bed now
Night night all and sleep well

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:46 PM

I'm OK thanks. Bit tired. Had work and then branch group! Cat gave me lots of love when I got in. :)

How was seeing your new CPN? Can you see the GP about being unwell? OOH GP? Oh dear. What happened with your colleague?

Aubergine 22-05-2018 10:47 PM

Night night, Beckie. I hope you sleep well.

chinahorse 22-05-2018 10:53 PM

Night beckie. Xx

Alec is such a sweetie pie. What's branch group? Maybe sleep could happen soonish?

I have no time to see a gp. I'll survive.
New cpn was an old IP nurse. She was nice enough. Think she wants to leave me to get on with life though. I suppose it's fair enough. I'm sort of just managing without doing anything dramatic.
Colleague in a nutshell isn't pulling her weight and is using work time for personal matters and making myself and the other girl pick up the slack when we only started a month ago! The colleague in question is also not doing her Erm duty to curent patients in favour of signing up new patients for which we get a small cash reward. So other girl and I are pissed off at colleague.

Aubergine 22-05-2018 11:04 PM

Oh dear. That doesn't sound good of your colleague at all. What did management say. Sounds like you did the right thing.

Hmm. How do you feel about being left to get on with life?

Branch group is like a bible study group. Not that we read the bible today! We mostly talked about my friend's prostate. :wow:

Sleep will hopefully happen soon. Have only just taken meds, so will have to wait for the trazodone to kick in I think.
