I see nothing odd about it. =)

one_step_closer 29-10-2021 09:13 AM

Morning everyone, I hope you have a good day. What are your plans?

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 10:43 AM

Morning lindsay!
Hope you have a good day too

I have to go to asda and then got work at 5

How about you?

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 10:46 AM

Hey guys :) I have no plans except feeling sorry for myself because I have a cold.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 10:49 AM

Hey tamo

Oh no! Hope you feel better soon!

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 10:52 AM

How's work going?

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 10:58 AM

How are you osc?

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 11:03 AM

Work is ok thanks!
Still enjoying it!

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 11:07 AM

That's good :)

nonperson 29-10-2021 11:12 AM

6 more hours of wooork!

And I've just realised I forgot my earphones :pinch:

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 11:15 AM

That's not good np. Remind me, what's your work?

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 11:30 AM

Oh no np!

nonperson 29-10-2021 11:37 AM

I'm a horticulturist/propagator.

Just going to have to cope with the jukebox in my head, but it keeps playing the same song on repeat.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 11:42 AM

Hate it when that happens!

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 11:57 AM

I don't like having songs in my head, they usually make me want to dance.

nonperson 29-10-2021 12:10 PM

That's more likely to happen when I'm listening with earphones, Tamo. Dancing is good though!

It's a good song at least and I'm not bored of it yet =P

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 12:51 PM

What song is it?

I've just been to asda and actually remembered to top up the gas and electric!

shadow-light 29-10-2021 01:20 PM

dont other people almost always have a song in their head? My brain is like a jukebox that I can't control and with random bits of songs missing :laugh:

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 01:25 PM

I usually get songs stuck in my head when I'm walking
Though I've had the theme tune to 'round the twist' stuck in my head all day because we were singing it at work last night

shadow-light 29-10-2021 01:38 PM

ha! I rememebr round the twist, and now I can hear it's theme in my head :laugh:

it's a bit odd in a way, I can't do visualisation on any level (much to the CMHTs annoyance as they keep attenmpting mindfullness with me) but I have super accurate recall for auditory stuff

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 01:45 PM


That's interesting!
I can see how mindfulness wouldn't be good for you!
I hate mindfulness

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 01:48 PM

I do mindfulness every day but I don't know why because it doesn't do anything.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 01:50 PM

It is raining a lot

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 01:54 PM

It's raining a little bit here.

I've put some washing on.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 01:56 PM

I hope it stops before I have to go to work!

That's good :)

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 01:57 PM

Do you walk to work?

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 02:05 PM

Takes me about 40 mins
Which I don't mind
I just don't like walking home in the dark

tamobhuuta 29-10-2021 02:07 PM

I wouldn't like that either. Is there someone you can buddy up with?

nonperson 29-10-2021 02:10 PM

Back Foot by Dinosaur Pile-Up =P

Also Round The Twist was amazing! I always thought that someone should do a punk rock cover of the theme tune.

Have you ever, ever felt like this... >.>

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 02:10 PM

Usually I can get a lift but sometimes I can't
I'm ok for most of the walk but there is a very long, dark alleyway that I have to walk down. That's the scary bit

Ninja post np!

I have never heard that song!

They should! That would be awesome!

nonperson 29-10-2021 02:12 PM

It's catchy: https://youtu.be/_7ZQytOqmCk

Never seen the video so dunno what it entails.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 02:17 PM

I like that!
Video is good too

nonperson 29-10-2021 02:19 PM

It's the only song of theirs I know at the moment. Just came up randomly on a playlist I was listening to.

I'll watch the video later when I get home! Don't want to do it at work where anyone might walk in.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 02:29 PM

I love finding random music in playlists

Yeah that would be a bit awkward!

one_step_closer 29-10-2021 02:52 PM

I refuse to let this talk put any songs in my head!

I saw my psychiatrist this morning and he wants to see me again next Friday and refer me to psychotherapy.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 03:02 PM


That sounds like you've finally met someone decent!

one_step_closer 29-10-2021 03:04 PM

Yeah, he's a really nice guy. I hope he stays and continues to work well with me. Psychs are always leaving here. He's Scottish too, we usually get people from foreign countries.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 03:09 PM

I don't know why cmhts have such a hard time holding on to their staff!
My psych is a locum but he's been there for about 3 years now
And god knows how many cpns I've had!

one_step_closer 29-10-2021 04:30 PM

You'll need to be extra charming to them if you like them so they feel like it's a good place to stay.

Cacoethes 29-10-2021 04:39 PM

Yes absolutely!

My current cpn just irritates me but I think that's more my issue than her!

one_step_closer 29-10-2021 05:19 PM

Oh, that must be annoying. She looks after your wellbeing though, right?

shadow-light 29-10-2021 05:47 PM

I've had 3 care coordinators since may, and went the second one left (after one meeting) I had to literally wait for the CMHT to hire a new one :laugh:

I agree that the CMHT seems to have one heck of a staff turn around

Cacoethes 30-10-2021 08:37 AM

Morning everyone

I have spent the evening/night in hospital.
Had several bad seizures on the way ro work apparently
So I've needed lots of IV medication and fluids and tests and scans.
Still got an IV going now
Apparently I was very confused
I hope I can go home soon
I have an amazon delivery coming today!

nonperson 30-10-2021 10:37 AM

Oh no! Do you know what caused it? Are you home yet? Sounds like they've been looking after you though. <3

Cacoethes 30-10-2021 10:40 AM

Not a clue!
Not home yet unfortunately
Still waiting on doctor
Nurse said hopefully i can go home today. Just finished an IV and I'm hoping that's the last of them!
They have been really good tbf

How are you?

nonperson 30-10-2021 10:45 AM

I wonder if the extra anxiety you've been having is playing a part in your increased number of seizures lately?

Hopefully you'll be allowed home soon. Best to stay where you are until the docs are happy you're alright.

I'm ok, tired... Had very disturbed sleep last night.

Cacoethes 30-10-2021 10:50 AM

Most likely
Looks like I'll have to try and make a neurologist appointment

Yeah. I'm not going to discharge myself or anything
Just wish they'd hurry up!
I know they're very busy though
I just need to get back before my amazon parcel!

Ah that's not good.
Are you off this weekend?

nonperson 30-10-2021 10:53 AM

I think that would be sensible. =)

Will your neighbour take it in for you?

I'm off work for 9 days now!

Cacoethes 30-10-2021 12:02 PM

Good news!
I can go home
The doctor was like 'I don't know what to do'
(Very reassuring...)
And he asked me if I wanted to stay or go home and obviously I chose go home!

Ooooh lucky you!
Any plans

nonperson 30-10-2021 12:28 PM

Who would choose to stay in the hospital? o.O Unless they still felt unwell or something, I suppose.

Will it take long to get home? Did the doctor not even have any suggestions?

No plans other than getting my garden/house/life in order.
