Hey np!
How are you?

nonperson 06-12-2021 02:21 PM

Well a very nice and attractive man at work just bought me flowers and chocolate as a thank you so I feel a bit giddy >.>

How're you? Feeling any better yet?

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 02:22 PM

Awww that's so nice!

Nope! I feel absolutely dreadful
Should have called gp this morning really

nonperson 06-12-2021 02:26 PM

Yup, he's almost too nice!

Can you still call them? =(

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 02:32 PM

You deserve nice-ness!

Probably not.
You have to call at 8am to get a call back.
I made the mistake of going on webmd symptom check. Lol!
Its top diagnoses were hypoglycaemia or brain aneurysm!

one_step_closer 06-12-2021 03:35 PM

When can you next talk to someone about how you're feeling Beckie? Do you need to call 111? I really hope you feel better soon.

How are you feeling now Tamo?

I would have acted a right fool if a guy gave me chocolates and flowers even just as a thank you gift. Did you manage to hold it together NP?!

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 03:37 PM

My friend said to call 111
But I'm having phone anxiety
I have some new symptoms today too
I'll talk to my cpn tomorrow. Though tbh she is pretty clueless about most things! Lol
Thank you :)

How are you doing lindsay?

one_step_closer 06-12-2021 03:45 PM

Is your friend still around or anyone you trust to take the call and recall back what you're saying? It's good that you have your CPN to talk to tomorrow, make sure you tell her everything. Maybe write things down if you can incase you forget something or wouldn't feel more comfortable getting it all out in one go on the paper and then discuss various symptoms.

I'm not too good today. Not got much housework done.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 03:50 PM

My friend has gone home now. But I could ask him to call on my behalf because he knows literally everything and he could message me the verdict.
I just find calling 111 super stressful
Writing things down is a good idea!

Sorry to hear that
Housework can be really daunting
Can you give it another go tomorrow?

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 04:00 PM

Sorry to hear my thread peeps aren't so well. I am quite good except I am disappointed with my ebay purchase that came this morning. It's very small.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 04:02 PM

That's a shame dawn
Online shopping can be quite hit and miss!

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 04:09 PM

Yes it was a present too for my cpn to say thanks. I will probably give it as it's nurse themed and I dont know anyone else I can give to. Probably won't leave positive feedback as it's not worth the hassle of returning it considering what I paid. I think it's bad of the seller not to put the size of the keyring on the auction as it was an eBay purchase.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 04:17 PM

That's nice of you :)

Probably not worth the hassle, no.
It is bad. You hear about it happening all the time on ebay

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 04:23 PM

She's a decent cpn. I am going on Thursday to my hearing voices group which is held at the cmht so will drop it off then. I just have to find some pretty paper. I give a card to my cpn on mh nurses day and nurses day if they're decent. I had a bitch of a cpn who got nothing from me not even a Christmas card.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 04:31 PM

It's good to recognise when someone does a good job
I always forget about nurses day until the actual day and I see it on fb!

one_step_closer 06-12-2021 06:40 PM

That's a shame about the size Dawn but I'm sure your CPN will love it. I sent a Zox wristband to one of the HCAs at the hospital called 'caught doing something good' or something like that because she is always so kind and doing good for the patients. They're mostly all good staff but I wanted to thank her because she was very good with me on my last admission and previous admissions.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 06:45 PM

That's lovely lindsay!

I love the zox bands you got me. I've got them on right now!

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 07:30 PM

Thanks Lindsay.

It's freezing here. According to my phone it's only 4 degrees but feels like -1.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 07:41 PM

I've just put my heating on

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 08:06 PM

So have I Beckie. I had an email before from sse saying that they wanted meter readings so I submitted them and I am in credit with both gas and electricity so I thought **** it I can afford not to freeze.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 08:21 PM

I'm on a pre payment meter thing which I prefer to paying monthly

not_so_insig 06-12-2021 08:23 PM

I cba going out to get credit all the time. Plus it's more expensive than paying direct debit. My paranoia won't let me have a smart meter.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 08:27 PM

Each to their own!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:11 PM

Sometimes there's no choice though. My electricity is direct debit and my "gas" is on a meter.

I've been out to buy Christmas trees this evening. =)

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 09:17 PM

Oooh exciting!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:29 PM

Well they weren't for me but it was fun anyway.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 09:32 PM

Who were they for?

It is fun shopping for trees though!

nonperson 06-12-2021 09:57 PM

For my friend and her sister. We get them free at work so I donated mine.

We were the only ones there and there was a fire.

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:01 PM

Oh that's good!

Oooh that sounds lovely!

nonperson 06-12-2021 10:06 PM

And Mariah Carey came on the radio as I parked up. Pure Christmas magic... :blink:

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:12 PM

Not Mariah carey!!!

nonperson 06-12-2021 10:19 PM

I knowww.

I also heard a godawful cover of a Christmas song this afternoon on the radio. So bad that I can't even remember the song or the band now...

Cacoethes 06-12-2021 10:38 PM

There are some really bad covers out there!

We have them at work mixed in with the normal music :ermm:

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 10:34 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 11:42 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 11:44 AM

I'm ok thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 11:46 AM

I am ok. Another drooley night and a cold morning. Do you have any plans for today?

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:02 PM

It is very cold
No plans for me
How about you?

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 12:09 PM

I'm not sure. I should go for a blood test but that will take a lot of effort.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:11 PM

It is a lot of effort.
But probably something important

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 12:43 PM

The nurse person said it would probably be fine but it's part of the yearly obs. At least it's a short journey.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 12:44 PM

Ah yeah.
Short journey is ok though

one_step_closer 07-12-2021 04:07 PM

Has no one been hit by storm Barra? It's high winds and thick cold snow blowing in it here. I had to walk for a while to the post office delivery office and my face kept getting hit by chunky snowflakes.

not_so_insig 07-12-2021 04:17 PM

It was very wet and windy before but has calmed down a lot now. I got wet waiting for the bus before.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 05:22 PM

It's very windy and rainy here too!

nonperson 07-12-2021 06:54 PM

The wind hasn't been as bad here as everyone was making it sound. Lots of heavy rain though.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 06:56 PM

I hope the wind dies down before we have to put the bins out tomorrow night!
Otherwise there will be rubbish and bins all over the place!

not_so_insig 07-12-2021 07:43 PM

I hope so too Beckie as I live in a windy spot. I recently lost a paper bag so don't want to lose another. It's ordinary bin day this week so fingers crossed that they'll collect it as I really struggle with the wheelie bin.

Cacoethes 07-12-2021 07:49 PM

It's recycling for us
So if it tips over it'll be loose recycling everywhere!

tamobhuuta 07-12-2021 08:33 PM

We decided to put off my blood test because of the weather.
