Aubergine 25-05-2018 12:47 PM

I do need a summer jacket really. Money though! Annoying.

I hope she's ok to. I miss her!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 12:52 PM

Being skint sucks!

I miss her too.
Hopefully dawn or zombie will know how she is.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 01:33 PM

I am at my nanny's now so won't be around as much for the next few days!
Behave yourselves while I'm gone! :tongue2:

not_so_insig 25-05-2018 01:40 PM

I have sent Lorraine a text so as soon as she replies I will let you all know.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 01:58 PM

Have fun, Beckie!

Thanks Dawn. :)

Buttons. 25-05-2018 02:36 PM

Thanks Dawn, after noon everyone x

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 03:06 PM


Hope you're all ok!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 03:08 PM

Hey Buttons! Up to much?

I'm sat in the endoscopy waiting room. Ugh.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 03:22 PM

Good plan Aubergine!
You'll be fine

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:03 PM

Thanks Beckie. A man came into the waiting room after his procedure and said "they had to ram it down my throat." So that was great. I've been booked in. Just one person in front. I forgot how much I hate cannulas.

Serendipity. 25-05-2018 04:07 PM

I hope it goes okay lovely!

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 04:08 PM

Well that was helpful of him!
All that I remember from when I had mine was when they were taking it out. Was out of it before that, you will be fine! <3

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:12 PM

Why would someone say that in a waiting room for other people having the same procedure?!

Thank you both. Thanks Beckie. I'm hoping I won't remember it!

How are you guys?

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 04:15 PM

People can be so thoughtless!
Maybe he didn't have the sedation?
I saw a few who chose not to have it

Im ok. Just chilling with my nanny!
Going to my dad's at about 6 and then will be going to the gig

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:20 PM

Sounds good! What kind of music is it?

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 04:22 PM

Punk and alternative!
That's my dad's scene
Should be good!
There's music over 2 floors apparently
Will probably be busy though!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:24 PM

Oh wow. Over two floors? Will be cool. Hopefully you'll enjoy the music so much you won't notice how busy it is.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 04:27 PM

Thanks :)
It should be fine!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:32 PM

I'm sure it will be. :)

How is your Nannie?

Buttons. 25-05-2018 04:40 PM

Aubergine like I said been through it not nice but with sedative barely remember it and nowhere near as bad as I thought.

Hope everyone is okay.

Cacoethes 25-05-2018 04:40 PM

She's feeling pretty good thanks :)

Bellatrix 25-05-2018 04:48 PM

I am in an unbelievable amount of pain as I had an IUD fitted so please let's talk and distract me!

How is everyone today?

Bellatrix 25-05-2018 04:50 PM

Aubergine - I've had an endoscopy and it was 100% fine for me. Don't remember it, only a little sore throat after, and I was completly fine after the sedation! Don't worry, 90% of the time it goes without any problems.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 04:50 PM

Thanks Buttons. :)

Hey Jodie. Sorry you're in pain!

Buttons. 25-05-2018 06:02 PM

Hope you feel better soon JodiE. Also get what I got in my HP box-a Bellatrix T-shirt it's epic!!

Bellatrix 25-05-2018 06:05 PM

Ahhhh I'm so jelly! But I got an AFP tshirt from the gig last week and it's even more epic hehe. I love it. It says 'Fix your own ****' and I feel like that sums up my life pretty well haha

Buttons. 25-05-2018 06:14 PM

Ha ha am slightly jealous of that T-shirt! So what you up to tonight? *may go ninja on you and steal that T-shirt....then again you'd just steal my Bellatrix one back so....*

Bellatrix 25-05-2018 06:27 PM

I would, that is correct. But mind has Amandas autograph on it so... I win!

I am going to rest and make J do everything because I am sooooore and have had a medical procedure lol. I know it's just a basic one, but having problems with your connective tissue makes things to much more painful and difficult and complicated.

Oh and the *DR* asked if I have been taking collegen supplements. Like, seriously, you have a medical degree. How can you not understand that taking collagen supplements will make my body produce more faulty collagen, because it is my effing DNA. Silly man.

What will you do? Are you watching any new boxsets or netflixes?

Aubergine 25-05-2018 07:15 PM

I survived the gastroscopy!

nonperson 25-05-2018 07:21 PM


Aubergine 25-05-2018 07:59 PM

Person! :) how are you?

one_step_closer 25-05-2018 08:12 PM

Yay Aubergine!

What is everyone doing this evening?

Aubergine 25-05-2018 08:19 PM

Yo Lindsay! How's it going?

Bellatrix 25-05-2018 08:36 PM

Well done love! Hope it wasn't too stressful for you. x

Aubergine 25-05-2018 08:39 PM

Thanks. :) it was pretty uncomfortable, but manageable. The team were very kind.

nonperson 25-05-2018 09:26 PM

I'm glad it went ok. All over and done with now!

I disappeared off to do some food shopping to last me a few days.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:34 PM

Yup! All over and done with. They did find a small ulcer, but said that it should clear up if I continue the high doses of stomach meds that I'm on for the next six weeks. It works out at 8 pills a day, on top of my usual 11, so I was hoping to stop them. Hopefully after the six weeks it won't be quite so many!

How did food shopping go?

nonperson 25-05-2018 09:42 PM

Wow that's a lot of pills. =o

Food shopping was ok, bought a load of rubbish and they'd annoyingly moved all the aisles around!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:46 PM

Too many when I hate taking the bloomin' things as it is! Keep talling myself it's only temporary.

Oh that is annoying. IF only you live somewhere you could shop online!

nonperson 25-05-2018 09:52 PM

Are you feeling alright after the sedation?

I can get food deliveries (it's only takeaways that won't/can't deliver!) but I dunno, I'm not very sure about food shopping online.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 09:55 PM

I was feeling OK until I took m night meds and now I feel a bit weird. My night medication is sedative too though, so that's porbably why. Oh well. At least I should sleep. Just have to not fall over!

What make's you unsure about it? It's brilliant. I don't have to go into supermarkets!

nonperson 25-05-2018 09:59 PM

Maybe get yourself somewhere comfy so if you do fall it'll be soft!

I dunno, I don't really like people coming to the house for deliveries... One of the things I was quite adamant about when living alone again was that I wouldn't do online food shopping so that it would force me to actually leave the house at least once a week, other than going to work.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:09 PM

I'm in my bed! I need to get up to go to the loo but it's a bit beond me right now. I signed a form to agree to stay with someone for 24 hours, but I would have had to stay at my Mum's and I just couldn't. So I lied a bit. I'm better in my own flat though - the bed in Mum's spare room is awful and I never sleep well in someone else's space. I like my own bed. I like to be on my own. :P

Ah, I see. That makes sense. I guess I'm quite lucky in that I'm out a lot when I'm well. It's a good idea to make you leave the house for some other reason than work.

nonperson 25-05-2018 10:14 PM

Well make sure you check in here too so we know you're still alright.

I still hate it though, but some days it just bothers me more than others. I don't want to "give in" and do it online. Plus I quite like the drive and having music on.

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:21 PM

Survived the toilet trip, you'll be glad to know! :P

Driving with music sounds good. :) You do amazingly not to give in. I know what you mean about wanting to push yourself to carry on. My Mum takes me for drives when I'm anxious. The motion is what does it, I think!

nonperson 25-05-2018 10:31 PM

I am pleased to know that!

I dunno why it's one of the things I don't want to give in doing... Everything else I'm quite happy to avoid if I can!

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:51 PM

WEll it's good, whatever the reason! :) I admire you for being able to go into a supermarket, especially going in on your own. You're awesome! :)

Just got to eat this banana and drink a drink and then lie down.

nonperson 25-05-2018 10:55 PM

Ha, thanks. <3

And then sleep?

Aubergine 25-05-2018 10:58 PM

I hope so. I think so.

nonperson 25-05-2018 11:00 PM

I hope so too. You've had a tricky day and need some recuperation!

I'm tired and yawning but not really sleepy, if that makes sense.
