Goodish news - Uncle John is stable, he has had 2 arteries inflated and a third is to be done at a later date, he got through the first 24 hours after the heart attack which I am told is the most critical period.

*hugs everyone and offers tea and biscuits*

Eclectica 13-01-2009 02:46 PM

Glad to hear it :] *hugs*

I'm so ****ing SCARED. I'm going to the doctors in an hour to get my arm checked out... But urgh. Just looking at it scares me to death. It's so swollen. Like it's slowly filling up. I think it's infected. The others cuts around it are infected we think so... aahhhh :[ Very scared.

zowie 13-01-2009 02:51 PM

Mary Anne, I'm very glad to hear about your uncle. Will be thinking of him and you xx

Helen, I'm on Jobseekers Allowance and am currently looking for work. However, the ammount I'm getting is just enough to cover my rent to my dad, which they wont raise because I'm not paying a landlord. So I don't have any money for myself and can't find a job as I have actually been trying since the summer to find part time work (which is all I can do - If I can't do full time college there's no way I can do full time work).
It's all horrible.
I'm going to phone them in a minute and ask if it'll be easier for me if I move into my own flat because then I'd get housing benefits.


[edit: *hugs katricia* hope the doctor can help hun xx]

MammaMia 13-01-2009 03:19 PM

Mary Anne, am glad to hear the news fo your Uncle ;)

Katrica, hope it doesn't go too badly at the doctors sweetie.

Zowie, ah I understand now. Well I hope you can get something sorted out for you sooner rather than later, but I imagine moving will be a little bit difficult with the shitty economical problems at the moment. But very best of luck anyway hun :)

realflifefaerie 13-01-2009 05:22 PM

Im thinking I may need to check in here for a bit, at least whilst exams and homesickness is resident within me this much along with other stuffs.

Is that ok?

MammaMia 13-01-2009 05:46 PM

Of course it is Secrets, you're allowed to stay for any length of time!!!

Eclectica 13-01-2009 05:50 PM

Doctors went ok I think... The poor nurse we saw knows us and looked at my arm like o.o O__O *cringe* and said it's filled up with pus or something. So she took a swab and is sending it off and she dressed it and i'm going back tomorrow to get it dressed again... Ick.

*waves to Dayna, Mary-Anne, Helen, Ravyn, Katrica, Arwen*

Secrets : Hi. *waves* Welcome to the madhouse ... oops, I mean "the home of the differently sane". Feel free to check in whenever you can and or need to.

*offers hugs to everyone*

* * * * *

I'm hypomanic at the moment la la la la la. As far as I know we are still under the severe weather warning with warnings regarding flash flooding. The weather makes me go up. I'm not quite manic yet ... give me some time lmao.

I had fun today. I popped my R kneecap out and now it keeps popping out with lovely cracking noises and I keep getting weird sensations in my foot. Oh well. Hopefully in a few hours when the shops and stuff open up again I'll be able to go and buy some strapping tape and see if I can make the silly thing stay in the right position.

I'm craving lollies!!!!!!! *thinks about dancing around madly and decides against it because Nicole and her other housemate would really not appreciate that aftermath of that one*

Mary Anne 13-01-2009 06:37 PM

Hey all,

*hugs Kat* hows the arm feeling?

*offers hugs to Secrets* hello, homesickness is really tough, been there and know how you feel, here if you want to chat

*hugs Kahlia* hows the knee? I have a hip that pops out - always fun! The noises joints make can be scary :)

*hugs Zowie* did you phone the benfits people? How did you get on?

*hugs Helen* how are you getting on?

*hugs Ravyn* did the cloud lift yet?

*hugs everyone else who may be around and thinking of those who are not*

Eclectica 13-01-2009 07:18 PM

It's feeling terrible lol >_< but I'll survive. I hope. Eep. Scary. Can't move it without pain. Even just typing hurts it. BLEEEH.

Had hardly any sleep too ._. Damn. I feel crap lol Oh well. Deserved.

wildly insane 13-01-2009 07:20 PM

Hi, please can I admit myself? Need a bit of time out from my head really, but seeing as that is impossible would like a bit of time out from reality instead, I'd just like to curl up for a while and listen to everybody and maybe pipe up every now and then, but right now I need some sleep. Thanks guys, *hugs everyone*.

MammaMia 13-01-2009 07:58 PM

Kat, owch, hope your arm is feeling less painful soon.

Kahlia, *hugs* Sorry its not more

wildly insane, welcome to the psych ward!!

MammaMia 13-01-2009 08:00 PM

Mary Anne, I'm not doing great. Just can't shift these sucide thoughts and they're getting quite strong =/

realflifefaerie 13-01-2009 09:17 PM

Thanks for the hugs, went and helped at the youth thing I helped at earlier which really helped.
I need to revise but I dont see the point as Im going to fail

Mary Anne 13-01-2009 09:45 PM

*big cuddle for Helen* sorry you are struggling just now, can't say much but stay safe

*cuddles kat - avoiding arm* not surprised you can't sleep (had broken limbs the past getting comfy is impossible), have you got antibiotics? take care of yourself

*offers hugs to wildly insane* welcome to the jungle :)

*hugs secrets* when are your exams? try not to panic about revising, do little bits at a time, your brain cannot focus for long periods (I am a part time student doing professional exams for work, know your struggle with exams well). Well doen going and doing something to take your mind off things. My best revision tip - when you are tired and can't sleep read your notes - sends you right off!! Good Luck.

*leaves hugs for all those who check in later*

A hard day in my world, so much has happened in the past 24 hours, my uncle (we have now located him in America, he has had surgery and will survive - as my mum, his sister, put it - this time, he needs to take better care of himself).
Some stupid person left opened a gate in the field where my horse lives and he escaped (he is a total nosey parker) so that gave me a fright but he was recovered safe and sound but rather wound up!
Had my annual appraisal at work, at least that went well, my only downfall this year was my sickness record but my boss knows why he said they just have to note it because it is a fact.
More fights with the he-devil (he wants to stay friends - I am nowhere near ready to comtemplate that).

Whoops, have gone on for ages.


Away to bed.x.

realflifefaerie 13-01-2009 10:15 PM

Thanks Mary Anne, ones saturday then next tuesday, theres just so much to learn and my brains struggling so much.

*hugs Mary Anne and others that come in later*

MammaMia 13-01-2009 10:50 PM

*screams head off*

Please make this **** stop?

realflifefaerie 13-01-2009 11:07 PM

*hugs MammaMia*

wildly insane 13-01-2009 11:31 PM

ooh Mary Anne, another horse lover, yay *hugs*

wants to give MammaMia a big hug, gives MammaMia a big hug, would love to do more but can't think of anything else.

Must go to bed now though otherwise tomorrow will be as bad as today, if only I sleep well....

*hugs everyone* (I like hugs)
