I’m too addicted to Instagram. I feel truly lost.

I’m in a not really tutorial. Should pay more attention.

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 08:23 PM

I'm not really that into Instagram.
It's mainly fb and WhatsApp for the work group chat

What's the tutorial on?

Elmer 04-10-2021 08:24 PM

It's about how to use the software, but my wifi keeps cutting out so I'm going to just watch the recording and try to get my act together to change my internet provider as this is an ongoing issue

Cacoethes 04-10-2021 08:33 PM

Sounds like a good plan!

Me and Luna went to an in person tutorial once.
Except we were late and felt too self conscious going in so we went to the pub instead

nonperson 04-10-2021 09:29 PM

lol Beckie XD

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 12:28 AM

Facebook is working for me but WhatsApp isnt.

The OU aren’t doing any in person events this academic year, which is a shame.

Everything’s back! I’m not sure if I’m relieved or missing out on a journey of self discovery…

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 09:14 AM

Yaaay Facebook and WhatsApp!

Good morning guys!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 11:16 AM

I wasn't affected by the kerfuffle, I didn't want to use fb anyway.
Morning guys.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 11:17 AM

Morning tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 11:45 AM

I am ok thanks. I think my godmother is calling this afternoon which will be nice. How are you?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 11:46 AM

Glad you're ok
That will be nice :)

I'm still in lots of pain but otherwise ok!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 11:51 AM

That sucks. Can you take painkillers?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 11:52 AM

I've been taking paracetamol regularly for days. Doesn't touch the pain!
I spoke to a paramedic at drs today and I need another x ray.

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 11:57 AM

Morning all. My parcel is due to arrive today sometime. Unfortunately tracking doesn't give a time. It sounds wet and windy here today so it's a good job that I dont want to go out. I have a purring cat next to me.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 12:04 PM

My cpn will be coming at some point soon
And a parcel at some point

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 12:11 PM

I'm looking forward to a parcel for my mum because she said it's a present for me!

Sorry the paracetamol isn't working Cacoethes.

Is your parcel exciting insig?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 12:18 PM

How exciting tamo!

Thanks. The paramedic recommended deep heat so I'll get some of that tomorrow

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 12:19 PM

What's deep heat?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 12:27 PM

Like a spray type thing I think.
I'm not entirely sure!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 12:33 PM

Lol well I hope it helps.

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 12:41 PM

The spray is crap i recommend that you get the cream Beckie.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 12:42 PM

Thanks tamo!

And thanks dawn!
Does the cream smell as much as the spray?

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 12:44 PM

My parcel is some pyjama bottoms tamobhuuta. I hope that they don't come at like 7 pm or when I am eating my tea.

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 12:46 PM

They pretty much smell the same. Except the spray knocks you out when you are putting it on.

one_step_closer 05-10-2021 12:46 PM

Busy here today. I hope you all have a good day. I'm going to the gym as usual on Tuesdays. Don't want to go.

one_step_closer 05-10-2021 12:47 PM

The deep heat spray knocks you out!!! Not literally though?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 12:52 PM

Yeah someone in hospital used to use it and it used to stink the whole ward out!
Not a nice smell either!

I hope the gym goes ok lindsay.

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 01:00 PM

Oooo pyjamas!

I hope the gym is better than expected osc.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 01:39 PM

My amazon parcel isn't coming until between 5:30-9:30!
I hate it when they're so late!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 01:42 PM

That is annoying, it would be well passed my bedtime.

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 01:46 PM

Passed or past?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 01:47 PM

I'll have to take my meds a bit later tonight so I'm not in bed by 9!

I think it's past
But now I'm doubting myself!

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 01:57 PM

My parcel is here!

not_so_insig 05-10-2021 01:58 PM

It's past btw.

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 02:03 PM

Thought so!

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 02:11 PM

Thanks insig!

shadow-light 05-10-2021 02:14 PM


Cacoethes 05-10-2021 02:21 PM

Hi Hazel!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2021 02:41 PM

Hi shadow.

shadow-light 05-10-2021 04:51 PM


sorry I posted then had what I thought was a 1 hour CMHT appointment that ended up being 2 hours :laugh: never want to hear the term "graded exposure" again

how be people?

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 04:58 PM

Oh god that sounds difficult!

I'm ok.
Just had cpn appointment

shadow-light 05-10-2021 05:03 PM

I'm having a lot of hatred towards the CMHT at the moment :eyeroll: think I'm just frustrated and feel like they are ignoring me so now my brain wants to go against everything they say like some sort of awkward toddler :hehe:

you up to much today? Or what's left of today I guess

Cacoethes 05-10-2021 05:15 PM

That's fair enough I think!
I am also feeling hatred (I guess more irritability?) T
towards the cmht. But for different reasons!

Not really. Just had phone appointment with drs and saw cpn. Its been a lazy day!

Cacoethes 06-10-2021 08:28 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 06-10-2021 11:14 AM

Hey Cacoethes, how are you? Do you have any plans for today?

Cacoethes 06-10-2021 11:28 AM

Morning tamo!

I'm ok thanks.
I've been for my laser tattoo removal and now on the bus to get my wrist x rayed.

How are you?
Any plans?

tamobhuuta 06-10-2021 11:46 AM

Do you have an appointment for your x-ray or is it walk-in?

My only task for the day is having a shower but that's a big deal for me.

Cacoethes 06-10-2021 12:58 PM

It's walk in
There are sooo many people D:

Good luck with your shower!
