Morning guys!

Sorry to hear you're still in pain Lillie, at least it's not as bad when you're not walking. Maybe with rest it'll ease off a bit?

Sounds like taking it slow and doing one thing at a time, step by step should help, Luna. Taking a nice relaxing bath sounds quite nice, and breathing exercises could help you stay grounded as well.

[Luna] 22-02-2017 09:08 AM

Hey Lucy, thank you both <3
How are you Love?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 09:10 AM

Hey Lucy :)

[Luna] 22-02-2017 09:11 AM

Printing my notes would be a lot easier if my cat would stop trying to eat the printer >.<

Indigo. 22-02-2017 09:21 AM

I'm okay, thanks guys. I'm seeing my psychiatrist for the first time in ages, so that's making me a bit anxious. But I'll be fine, so long as I make it on time.

And aww Luna that's cats for you!

[Luna] 22-02-2017 09:50 AM

Both of my cats are absolutely fascinated by the printer. They attack the paper as it's coming out and often jam the bloody thing :P

Indigo. 22-02-2017 10:12 AM

Haha awww, so cute! 'what is this freaky machine?! Must attack!!' What are your cats' names?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 10:16 AM

Haha Luna. Your cats are adorable!

I hope it goes well Lucy.

I just put a wash on got washed and dressed and have a cuppa. And am feeling much less sorry for myself.

Indigo. 22-02-2017 10:18 AM

Thanks Lillie!

Glad to hear that love, sounds like you're more refreshed now! Any plans(that don't include running a marathon and going to the gym :P) today?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 10:22 AM

Haha. Hopefully my cpn will come round with my prescription not that I can afford to fill it. I may make some hair bows.

[Luna] 22-02-2017 10:32 AM

Well done Lillie, that's great. I hope your CPN can help with the meds.

Lucy, they are called Max and Mandy.

chinahorse 22-02-2017 10:50 AM

Thanks. I'm going to have to venture to the corner shop today or tomorrow. My cpn did say shed pick me up stuff but I feel awkward asking. I forgot things like sweeter and loo roll when I was with my dad tomorrow. Maybe if I give my housemate some money shed buy it for me as tbf she used the 4 loo rolls I bought like half a week ago.

[Luna] 22-02-2017 10:54 AM

I think it's probably a sensible idea to ask your housemate rather than try and go to corner shop yourself love.

chinahorse 22-02-2017 11:10 AM

But adbdjdjfjfjf I NEED to leave this house again. I'm no good at doing nothing.

It miserable and drizzly here though.

[Luna] 22-02-2017 11:13 AM

I know it must be so frustrating and boring and you're going stir crazy but you don't want to cause yourself more pain or risk damage to your foot, especially if the weather isn't great.

chinahorse 22-02-2017 11:31 AM

They said I won't damage my foot by walking on it as there's no graft yo damage.

How're you getting on?

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 11:38 AM

Hey guys!

I hope the pain eases soon Lillie. Glad you managed to make yourself a cuppa. Tea cures all!!

[Luna] 22-02-2017 11:43 AM

I'm glad walking on it won't damage it. How's the pain now?

Hey Beckie, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 11:52 AM

I'm ok thanks Luna. Bit tired!
How are you?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 12:30 PM

Hopefully you'll get less tired as you get up and going beckie. Got much planned for today?

Pain is manageable now thanks. I'm just so tired.

Sketchy 22-02-2017 12:32 PM

I hope the pain stops Lillie and that you get some rest.

I'm just about to get ready to go to my sister's. I'll be staying overnight. She has some jobs for me like fixing blinds, curtain poles and changing lights because she's scared of heights, so I'll be earning my stay.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 12:38 PM

Feeling a bit less tired now after a million cups of tea :p
Not got anything planned really. Need to go to asda and really need to do some revision for maths.

I'm glad the pain is manageable now. Definitely get some rest today!

She's lucky to have you Lorraine! I can't change lights either because I'm terrified of electric shocks! I can't even go on trampolines anymore because you can get static shocks off them!

Sketchy 22-02-2017 12:41 PM

I hate static shocks. I can understand your fear over electric shocks.

Glad you're feeling less tired. Tea is always the answer.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 12:44 PM

I can't touch metal door handles either because of this!
Static shocks are horrible!

It is indeed!

chinahorse 22-02-2017 01:00 PM

You two are wimps :P

I'm boooooororrrred

Sketchy 22-02-2017 01:04 PM

I'm not a wimp. :( Okay, maybe a little bit.

What you going to do today Lillie? You got anything good to watch?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 01:08 PM

:p I'm a wimp too

I've just painted my nails and my toenails which was interesting lol. Might get lunch soon. I'm hungry.

What're you up to?

Sketchy 22-02-2017 01:12 PM

I hope you get something yummy.

I'm just getting ready to go to my sister's flat for the day. We're going out for coffee too.

chinahorse 22-02-2017 01:26 PM

Sounds lovely lorraine. I hope it's drier out at yours than it is here!

I have macaroni cheese

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 01:45 PM

I'm a complete wimp and proud! :p

That sounds nice Lorraine. Hope you have fun! :)

Macaroni cheese is amazing. I'm jealous!

Indigo. 22-02-2017 02:16 PM

Hey again guys! I fell asleep earlier and I'm now on my way to my psych appointment. It's miserable and drizzly here too. Blah.

I like macaroni cheese, but haven't had it in ages!

Hope you have fun with your sister Lorraine!

Glad your pain is a bit more manageable Lillie.

Up to much today Beckie?

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 02:34 PM

Hope your appointment goes ok! It's all drizzly here as well. Yuck!

I really need to get some revision done but I'm procrastinating!

Indigo. 22-02-2017 03:07 PM

Thanks Beckie. I'm in the waiting room now. Hope I'm not going to have to wait too long, I was even early! That's like an amazing achievement for me.

I know that procrastinating feeling. I have loads of uni work to do but I just don't feel to able rn. Maybe try to plan it? Like break it down in smaller revision sessions. Maybe that'll help.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 03:14 PM

Well done for being early!! :-D

Planning it is a good idea. I'm sure the smaller sessions will help :)

chinahorse 22-02-2017 03:47 PM

Well done for being early and hope your appointment goes okay Lucy.

And I hope you both manage to make a plan and get a little bit of work done.

I was having a nice nap but got woken up by the phone.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 03:53 PM

I'm going to start doing some work now.

Oh no Lillie! That's the worst.

Indigo. 22-02-2017 04:49 PM

Thanks guys! My psych finally confirmed my ADHD diagnosis and arranged another appointment to discuss meds options.

I might try to do some work when I get home, though I can't promise anything, it's hard to focus ATM. Well done Beckie for starting doing work *cheerleading emoji I failed to find*

Hope you can get some more sleep Lillie. It's awful when the phone wakes you up.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 04:53 PM

That sounds positive Lucy. Always good to get things confirmed!

Thanks! I've read through a few pages and not really understanding it much but I've got class tomorrow so the teacher will be able to explain it all!

Sketchy 22-02-2017 05:20 PM

I'm over at my sister's. She's making us a slimming world recipe. Curried parsnip soup to start and then quorn curry. I'm looking forward to it. It smells good so far.

Indigo. 22-02-2017 05:21 PM

That's great Beckie, it's good the teacher can explain it all tomorrow. What are you studying?

I'm in boots waiting ages for my meds.

Lorraine that sounds delicious! I love quorn.

Sketchy 22-02-2017 05:23 PM

I hope they hurry with your meds Lucy.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 05:31 PM

I'm doing functional skills maths. Got to complete it before I can go on the GCSE course. I've already completed English.

Hope you get the meds soon! Are they on repeat prescription? In my local boots they sort out all the repeats and I get a text when they are ready. Saves a lot of time!

That sounds delicious Lorraine!

Indigo. 22-02-2017 05:46 PM

Thanks, I didnt have to wait that long but yeah. This boots has screwed with my repeat before. Claimed that my surgery said I was no longer registered there and that apparently they didn't have a contact no. Which is BS.
I wish they did the text thing! I will ask them next time. I got zoplicone today aside from my repeat, I've never taken it before so hopefully it'll work.

That's cool Beckie! I have a maths A level. If you ever need help or clarifying something or whatever, I wouldn't mind having a look. :) I do literature now so I don't really get to do much maths unfortunately.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 06:02 PM

Well that sucks! When I go and pick up my meds, I just tick all the repeat meds boxes and give it to them and they text when they're ready. So I don't have to give in the repeat to the surgery and pick it up. It's so much easier! I used to gp to Lloyds pharmacy and they were soooo slow!!

I hope the zopiclone works for you. You having trouble sleeping then?

Thanks! I may take you up on that sometime! :)

chinahorse 22-02-2017 06:18 PM

God boots are useless with my prescription between them and my gps I never had it easy.

Hope the meds work for you Lucy.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 06:58 PM

Hey Lillie! How are you?

Sketchy 22-02-2017 07:08 PM

Evening all. My sister's cooking was amazing. I'm so full.

Cacoethes 22-02-2017 07:15 PM

Hey Lorraine. Glad your dinner was good!
Have you got much planned for this evening?

Sketchy 22-02-2017 07:20 PM

We're watching orange is the new black with a glass of wine. You up to much?

chinahorse 22-02-2017 07:21 PM

Jealous of your good food. I had overcooked pizza because I forgot about it. Oops.
