That's a tough decision osc. Could you ring them and give them your mobile number?

Sorry you're in pain, have you had any painkillers insig?

not_so_insig 19-10-2021 05:12 PM

I am in less pain now than before tamobhuuta.

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 05:39 PM

I got to leave work early because I didn't feel great
Then had a seizure on the way home
Fortunately 2 off duty police officers happened to be walking past and helped me home.

not_so_insig 19-10-2021 05:40 PM

Oh noes Beckie but glad you had help.

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 05:57 PM


How's your day been?

one_step_closer 19-10-2021 06:31 PM

You seem to be having a lot of seizures recently Beckie, do you know what's causing them? Weren't you seizure free for a long time? Take care of yourself.

I hope you are pain free soon Dawn.

They have my mobile number Tamo but it would be awkward talking about things in public. I just went for my prescription early and they phoned when I had been home for a while. They've got me an appointment with my psych on the 29th which feels like too far away.

How are you Tamo?

What is everyone doing this evening?

Cacoethes 19-10-2021 06:51 PM

It's probably just change in routine or something
The gp called me and said to get in touch with neurologist. So I'll call his secretary tomorrow

The 29th does seem quite far away. But still pretty good for a psych appointment time.
It's good you have an appointment

I'm just watching TV atm

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 10:18 AM

Morning everyone!

There's supposed to be a thunderstorm today but it's quite sunny
Though it looks like it rained a lot during the night

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 01:17 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are you Cacoethes?.

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 01:19 PM

It's muggy here.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 01:23 PM


I'm ok thanks

I haven't been outside yet so can't comment on mugginess!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2021 01:40 PM

I am ok. Slept well thanks to PRN. Do you have any plans?

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 01:43 PM

Afternoon all. I woke up not in pain today. But my eyes are very watery and itchy :-(

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 01:49 PM

I am waiting for my amazon parcel and then need to go to asda and pharmacy.
I'm also doing washing!
Have you got much planned?

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 02:35 PM

Hello Beckie. It sounds you have a busy day.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 02:36 PM

Just the usual really!
Will only take me about 30 mins depending on whether there's a queue at the pharmacy

Have you got much planned today?

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 02:42 PM

No I just have to take out the recycling and wash my hair. I have to think about what to have for tea.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 02:44 PM

That reminds me, need to take out the recycling and bin also!

Have you got much in?

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 02:47 PM

Oh yes I have plenty in.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 02:50 PM

Spoilt for choice then!

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 02:54 PM

Trouble is that it's all frozen and none of it cook from frozen hence why I have to plan now.

It sounds wet and windy outside I dont want to go and do my recycling. Plus I am not sure what week it is.

one_step_closer 20-10-2021 03:15 PM

RYL bin night. I haven't checked which bin goes out tonight yet.

Weather here is sunny and windy.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 03:48 PM

Ah ok. That complicates things!

I got caught in some rain and there are some very big dark clouds over town. But it's sunny and windy and quite warm over my house!

It's the general rubbish for me this week.
I only know because my black bin is crammed full and green bin is only half full

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 03:49 PM

I am waiting for the email from the council. It comes around 3 pm. I think it's recycling tomorrow.

one_step_closer 20-10-2021 06:18 PM

We have a recycling bin for plastics and glass and another one for cardboard and paper and another for food and garden waste. As well as the normal bin. They're all big bins and get emptied on different weeks.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 06:36 PM

That sounds complicated lindsay!
I'd never remember which bin went out when!
We just have a black bin for general rubbish, a green lidded bin for all recycling and an all green bin for garden waste.
Which hasn't been collected in months due to driver shortages.
Its caused quite a stir on the local fb pages!

nonperson 20-10-2021 06:41 PM

We have to pay for the garden waste bin here.

Cacoethes 20-10-2021 06:53 PM

That's annoying!

not_so_insig 20-10-2021 09:50 PM

We have to pay for garden waste too here but I don't pay because I don't have a garden.

Cacoethes 21-10-2021 10:23 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 11:55 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 21-10-2021 11:56 AM

Been better.
But got work today so got to pull myself together

How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 12:04 PM

Sorry you aren't feeling well. Don't be afraid to take the time off if you need to. But I hope if you go it's helpful.

I am ok. Slept like a baby! No plans.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 01:24 PM

Afternoon all. I am planning to go to the park at the bottom of the road later with my mum.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 01:35 PM

Also we have reached 4800 pages!

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 02:21 PM

Go us!

I hope you have a nice time with your mum.

not_so_insig 21-10-2021 03:44 PM

I went around the park. I am still in considerable pain so I didnt stay out too long.

tamobhuuta 21-10-2021 06:40 PM

Sorry to hear that insig. I hope this evening is better.

I'm having an anxious day.

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 09:56 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 11:17 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-10-2021 11:47 AM

Same as yesterday pretty much
But another day of work to get through

How are you?

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 12:28 PM

I'm ok. I might talk to my spiritual director if she's not busy.

I hope work goes okay.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 01:06 PM

She wasn't available so I left a message.

nonperson 22-10-2021 01:37 PM

Afternoon all.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 01:47 PM

Hi np, how are you?

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:09 PM

Hey Tamo. I'm... cold and unmotivated but not at work.

I hope your spiritual director gets back to you. Does she usually respond quite quickly?

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 02:21 PM

I empathize with the cold. I am wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt, a vest and a jumper dress.
Is there anything you need to do today?

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:35 PM

I'm still in pyjamas and a jumper so that'll be why I'm cold. Jumper dress sounds cosy!

I need to shower and do a food shop probably. Maybe make a phone call...

tamobhuuta 22-10-2021 02:41 PM

I hope you find some motivation. Chores are hard.

nonperson 22-10-2021 02:51 PM

I've started a shopping list with stuff to make a tagine. =)
