I'm going to the gym with my support worker and another service user at 1pm. I really don't want to go but have to. I'm feeling loads of difficult emotions which makes it hard to get on ok in the gym.

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 11:19 AM

Ninja. I hope everything works out and you don't have to wait long for your appointment. Don't you even have nurses at your GP surgery who can take out staples?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 11:23 AM

Cacoethes, my mum had the same problem when she took my sister for her ketamine clinic.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 11:28 AM

I hope the gym goes ok lindsay

Thank you
All nurse appointments have gone a bit weird since covid.
I would usually get them taken out at either my gp surgery or the other surgery in town. But sometimes you get sent to the next town or another town that is inaccessible by public transport!
I think because nurse appointments get booked up weeks in advance this was the only appointment available. And obviously I need the staples out within the 10 days.

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 01:06 PM

My brother got given an appointment at the fracture clinic but when he got there they were just doing first come first served.

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 01:08 PM

Also I have had to stop doing the dishwasher just now because I was too spasmy.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 01:18 PM

That's annoying tamo!

Ryl weather report time!
It's pouring down!

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 01:55 PM

It's pouring down here too Beckie. I am waiting for my tesco shopping order. Hopefully there's no substitutions.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 01:58 PM

I hope it stops by the time I have to go out

Fingers crossed dawn!

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 02:02 PM

Or if there is it's not on the essentials like cat food or yoghurts. It's local yoghurts which aren't stocked everywhere.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 02:22 PM

Most of my coke zero wasn't available.
And they gave me caffeine free instead of normal coke zero :plain:

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 03:56 PM

Oh no, caffeine free stuff is disgusting.

I hope you have better luck with your delivery Dawn.

It's pouring down here too.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 04:13 PM

But I wasn't going to return it because I had run out. So it's better than nothing!

It's sunny here now!
British weather :eyeroll:

Did you go to the gym lindsay?

not_so_insig 28-09-2021 04:15 PM

I had 2 substitutions. One was my aero (I asked for peppermint and they gave me plain) the other was my potato salad and coleslaw (instead of being in one carton they gave me a tub of each) which was ok.

one_step_closer 28-09-2021 05:10 PM

I put on my heating for a tiny while. It's cold in my house but I don't want my neighbours see that I'm using my heating.

Yes I went to the gym, I'm getting bored of it on top of battling through the difficult MH stuff that comes with it.

I'm glad you didn't get bad substitutions Dawn.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 05:23 PM

It is chilly today
I refuse to put my heating on though!

Sorry to hear that lindsay
It does sound like a struggle

tamobhuuta 28-09-2021 05:56 PM

The rain here comes and goes.

Cacoethes 28-09-2021 06:35 PM

Same tamo

I got a call from the nurse
My appointment is in 10 minutes
I've just arrived in the town!
Good timing!

Cacoethes 29-09-2021 09:08 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2021 10:32 AM

Morning, how are you?

Your profile pic is quite creepy:indifferent:

Cacoethes 29-09-2021 10:49 AM

Morning tamo!
I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 29-09-2021 11:06 AM

Hi Natanie are you new? Welcome to the thread.

I'm ok, we've got an aunt coming for lunch.

Cacoethes 29-09-2021 11:07 AM

I hope you have a good time with your aunt!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2021 11:21 AM

Second attempt to post this!

It's ok with my aunt because my parents understand that it can get overwhelming so I can go sit quietly.

tamobhuuta 29-09-2021 12:57 PM

Excellent news! My dad, brother and aunt are going to the pub for lunch, so mum's stayed at home to be with me and my sister.

one_step_closer 29-09-2021 02:45 PM

I hope you're all having a good day.

I went to Primark to try and get some long sleeved PJs for the cold nights but they didn't have any exciting ones and the ones they did were made fluffy which just makes me sweat.

I got a fake oodie in the post today from Amazon. Hopefully it'll keep me warm before I go to bed.

tamobhuuta 29-09-2021 03:21 PM

Oodies are great. I have a blue with clouds one.

Cacoethes 29-09-2021 04:03 PM

Hope you're having a good day too lindsay!

Oodies look really cosy!

I volunteered to work until 10pm for some reason so I'm on my break! I had chicken goujons and sweet potato fries! I'll make myself a latte in a bit!

one_step_closer 29-09-2021 05:20 PM

Is working till 10 ok with you or do you wish you hadn't agreed? Maybe take a breath before you answer things like that! Dinner sounds tasty anyway.

not_so_insig 29-09-2021 05:22 PM

Hello all.

one_step_closer 29-09-2021 05:26 PM

Hi Dawn, how are you? What have you been up to?

Cacoethes 29-09-2021 07:47 PM

I don't mind lindsay.
I like to help out!
But I should probably consider things more!
I got to leave early anyway because we weren't busy :-D

not_so_insig 29-09-2021 08:01 PM

I am ok thanks Lindsay. Been chasing a parcel that came whilst I was out. It said delivered but it didn't say what number nor did they leave a card. I had an eye test today hence why I was out. I have to have new glasses but I chose the exact same pair again.

Cacoethes 30-09-2021 08:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-09-2021 10:37 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-09-2021 10:47 AM

I'm in lots of pain but otherwise ok thanks!.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 30-09-2021 11:20 AM

Is that from your bike accident? I am ok just really spasmy.

Cacoethes 30-09-2021 11:54 AM

Yes it is.
Don't know why it's so bad today!

Sorry to hear that.
Must be so annoying

I've just arrived at work so see you later!

one_step_closer 30-09-2021 01:11 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Beckie, don't some pains reach a peak and then start to ease? I hope you're out of pain soon. Have a good shift.

That does sound annoying Tamo, is there a clear trigger or is it just random?

tamobhuuta 30-09-2021 01:46 PM

It's a side effect from my meds. I take lorazepam as PRN which helps the spasms too.

one_step_closer 30-09-2021 05:15 PM

Side effects are annoying. All side effects should be nice things to reward you for taking your meds.

Cacoethes 30-09-2021 06:45 PM

Thanks lindsay!
The pain has got better throughout the day luckily!
My shift was quiet! Bit boring really!

How is everyone this evening?

tamobhuuta 30-09-2021 08:02 PM

Agreed osc.

Cacoethes 01-10-2021 08:44 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 11:15 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

one_step_closer 01-10-2021 12:17 PM

Afternoon both. How are you getting on?

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 12:41 PM

Hi osc, I'm ok, just had a shower. How are you?

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 01:57 PM

I thought I already replied to your post osc. I am ok, had a shower. How are you?

tamobhuuta 01-10-2021 01:59 PM

Oh dear, I had already posted!
