Phew ok!

Must suck to have diabetes though.
I wouldn't be able to deal with all those numbers and things!

nonperson 02-11-2020 08:10 PM

You'd get used to it. =)

It's so cold tonight. *sulk*

Cacoethes 02-11-2020 08:23 PM

I guess so!

It really is

tamobhuuta 03-11-2020 10:28 AM

Good morning all x

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 11:08 AM

Morning tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-11-2020 11:20 AM

Hi Cacoethes, i am ok thanks, got a blood test later. How are you?

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 11:26 AM

I'm ok thanks

I have my depot today.
Fun day for us both it seems!

I need to leave soon but the carer hasn't turned up yet :/

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 11:31 AM

I hope both your appointments go well. Do something nice for yourself afterwards if you can.

tamobhuuta 03-11-2020 11:33 AM

That's frustrating. Have fun getting needled!

I'm feeling anxious already but I've got my coping and distracting skills.

yoyogirl 03-11-2020 11:36 AM

I can’t seem to get into research methods j

tamobhuuta 03-11-2020 11:36 AM

What are you researching?

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 11:38 AM

I hate research methods too. Then I went and did my Msc in research methods in psychology. *shrugs* My OT told me to do that course rather than the MH one.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 11:39 AM

Thanks lindsay.
How are you doing?

Thanks tamo!

Well done for using your coping and distracting skills

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 11:42 AM

I think my support worker is phoning today to plan getting back to the gym. I really don't want to. Not looking forward to the points of today where I can't focus on anything and get really anxious etc.

When do you have to leave for your appointment? Your carers don't seem to be able to keep good time!

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 12:20 PM

Is there anything else you'd rather do than gym that you could suggest?

I had to leave in the end!

yoyogirl 03-11-2020 12:32 PM

It just annoys so much it’s common sense

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 12:35 PM

It's because I used to go to the gym group. She wants me to get back myself with her supporting me for a bit. We've just been going walks but I'm supposed to be moving forward. My support worker is all about moving forward and then finding something else to move towards. It's stressful.

Do you think it's trivial to contact the GP surgery about a rash? My surgery has an online form to fill and then they triage your problem and decide if you need to be seen or not.

I hope your appointment goes well. Did you let the carers know you had to go?

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 01:46 PM

Have you told her how much it's stressing you out?
I don't think it's fair on you to.pressue you to go.

Not trivial at all. A rash could be all sorts

Thanks
No I didn't but they called me about 5 minutes after I had left.

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 02:56 PM

She phoned me to arrange to go to the gym and said I really need to think about what I want to do because if she books a slot at the gym and then I cancel that wouldn't be good. I've got one day to think about it because she's phoning tomorrow to do my review and has asked me to let her know tomorrow.

Do the carers not have a timetable?

Are you back home now?

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 03:01 PM

At least you've got a bit of time to think

They don't seem to!
They seem to just turn up whenever!

Yes I am.
Made a phone call to apply for PIP.
I got the letter this morning saying I needed to apply before my DLA runs out.
I've been dreading this ever since they first brought PIP out!

not_so_insig 03-11-2020 03:52 PM

I have my cpn coming this afternoon. Fun times!

one_step_closer 03-11-2020 04:23 PM

Does your CPN come out to visit you Dawn?

I remember the worry of having to apply for PIP, I hope it works out for you Beckie.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 04:33 PM

Thanks lindsay
I was anxious about it but another lovely ryler has put me at ease with it so I don't feel so bad now

My cpn is leaving soon.
I wonder what my new one will be like. Can't seem to hold on to one for more than 6 months!

not_so_insig 03-11-2020 05:41 PM

Yes Lindsay my cpn comes to see me.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 05:49 PM

You're lucky Dawn!

nonperson 03-11-2020 06:52 PM

Evening all. How's everyone? What's on the RYL dinner menu tonight?

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 07:03 PM

Hey np :)
How was work?

I'm having chicken and homemade slimming world chips! With veg of course

nonperson 03-11-2020 07:16 PM

Work was sooooo cold. I'm enjoying being warm now.

Chicken and chips is good! I'm having stir fry part 2 and might do a baked apple for dessert. Warm comforting food. =)

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 07:19 PM

Oh no! Glad you've warmed up

Mmm sounds good!

nonperson 03-11-2020 07:34 PM

Might also watch Taskmaster tonight if I'm not too sleepy.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 07:40 PM

Yes do it!!!

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:04 PM

Half way through the upside down task right now =P

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:06 PM

A bat making out with a horse is how covid started >.>

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:11 PM

Haha! I loved that one!
Johnny's was epic!

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:16 PM

I thought Daisy May Cooper's one should have scored higher!

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:22 PM

Hers wasn't even upside down!

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:24 PM

I'm not sure I can repeat here what Johnny just said during the spaghetti task. XD

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:28 PM

Probably best not to XD

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:30 PM

It was totally not PG at all!

Not intended that way though.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:31 PM

Nope!!
That spaghetti task was brutal though!

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:36 PM

Always got to be suspicious when the task appears too simple.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:43 PM

Oh yes absolutely!
I at first expected it to be really hard to get spaghetti into a grapefruit (I hate grapefruit and don't think I've ever actually held one so I thought they were harder than they clearly are!) So I was very confused when they were getting it straight in!

nonperson 03-11-2020 09:49 PM

I imagined that a grapefruit would have tougher skin than an orange so would therefore be really difficult to pierce... but then again I've never tried to stick spaghetti in an orange so my theory is based on nonsense.

Really enjoyed the catapult task! And very impressed at how high some of them could get their legs. O.o

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 09:52 PM

I thought it would have been tougher than an orange too. But have also not tried to stick spaghetti in an orange.... *puts oranges and spaghetti on shopping list*

I know!! I certainly couldn't get my leg that high!

nonperson 03-11-2020 10:00 PM

Especially the 84 times Mawaan did it... and Johnny after falling through the ladder. =o

Everyone's got to go make grapefruit hedgehogs now, hehe.

Cacoethes 03-11-2020 10:07 PM

I'd probably have pulled several muscles falling through that ladder!

Yessss!!! :p

tamobhuuta 04-11-2020 11:07 AM

Hi everyone. How goes your .day?

Cacoethes 04-11-2020 11:08 AM

Hi tamo
I've had a really good loss at slimming world this morning so I am very happy!

How about you?

one_step_closer 04-11-2020 11:12 AM

Well done Beckie :-)

Hi Tamo.

Hi everyone else.

What are you all up to today?

tamobhuuta 04-11-2020 11:48 AM

I've got a friend coming for coffee, and I need to put my washing away.
