You must be used to blood tests by now. Still annoying though. Is it at a certain time? I'd hate for someone to arrange an appointment for me in case the time doesn't suit me.

I'm feeling a bit emotionally achey if that makes sense and anxious.

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 03:38 PM

Yeah I'm very used to them now!
Was having them every day at one point!
I don't mind them at all.
Yes they did arrange a time for me! Luckily it's on a day that i am free!

That makes sense.
Sorry to hear that lindsay.
Here if you need to talk

one_step_closer 21-04-2022 03:50 PM

That's good that the day and time for the blood test suit you. What are you doing today?

I've got some flexible things to do which I've put on my to do list for the next few days. They are important though. Getting rid of black mould/damp/whatever it is and maybe seeing if I can make room for new bedroom drawers I've chosen. My support worker said she can help me with it but I need to make sure all the measurements are right because I still need to fit in some other clothes storage I have at the moment. It's stressful even thinking about it. I'll need to start drying my washing outside to avoid creating the black stuff on the walls. I have it in my bedroom too, maybe just need to have the window open for a while through the day.

not_so_insig 21-04-2022 04:00 PM

Afternoon all. I am in a tricky situation. I am too hot if I have my windows closed yet too cold if I have them open.

My dad is still testing positive for covid (he did a test today) so I told my mum that I won't be visiting this weekend.

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 04:06 PM

I just had to post off my Nintendo switch to music magpie. Sad times.

That does sound like a lot to deal with lindsay.
I've not had the black stuff issue before but I've heard keeping windows open helps

That's a shame dawn.
Probably sensible not to go over

one_step_closer 21-04-2022 05:58 PM

Maybe use a fan or put on a jumper Dawn? I hope your Dad gets better soon. What will you do instead of visiting?

That is sad Beckie. I hope you don't have to sell any other things you like.

Yeah opening a window in the room is supposed to help. I keep forgetting to do that with my bedroom but my box room where I dry my clothes doesn't have a window that can be opened so I really need to be drying my clothes outside when I can even if it annoys my hay fever.

What are you all doing with the rest of your day? It was after 8.30pm that I closed my blinds and put a light on last night.

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 06:02 PM

I hope not too!

Outside dried clothes smell soooo good!!!
Do you get quite bad hayfever?

I'm watching a really crap zombie type movie called 'covid 21: lethal virus'
I've been on a bit of an apocalypse/virus/dystopian type binge lately!!

That is late lindsay! It's going to make walking home from work a lot nicer!

one_step_closer 21-04-2022 06:23 PM

My hay fever varies in intensity I'll maybe need to be aware of the pollen count and dry things inside if it's high.

You're watching the film even though it's crap? :laugh:

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 07:11 PM

Sounds sensible!

Yeah lol!
I've finished it now
I secretly love really terrible films. Especially shark ones!!

Zurg 21-04-2022 07:18 PM

Lindsay, i get the same thing on my bathroom walls where the water from the shower hits. You can get rid of it. In Denmark we have something called Rodalon which is great for scrubbing off mould with. It is a sort of chemical that kills the fungus/mould and desinfects the area that you use it on. It isn't toxic like a lot of other things though you should probably use gloves when scrubbing because it dries out your skin quite easily.

I find it's more a problem during winter when the Air outside is cold and i have the Window open after a shower…. During the summer when the Air is more warm it usually doesn't happen. I am sure there is a very splendid Scientific explanation for that, involving lots of Biology, chemistry and whatever else, which i have not yet bothered to research any further ;-)

I've just had dinner. Now i am trying to pretend i am not at all bothered by the dishes i need to do while i am drinking coke and sitting on my couch….

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 07:26 PM

I've never had to deal with mould. I am lucky!

Ugh. Dishes!
They're the worst

Zurg 21-04-2022 08:00 PM

Rumour has it that if you continuosly say you haven't had any mould in your home then you shall be haunted by the ghost of fungus and mould forever and ever!!!! Because the Universe is basically an evil genious with too much time on her hands!!!!

I did the dishes :D
Now i am having coffee. I had to put my weighted duvet away for the summer tonight which saddens me a lot. I sleep a lot more lightly without him but he is simply too warm to keep me company. I generate a lot of heat during sleep which is awesome during winter and ****ing awful during summer. I shall see you on the other side, Boerge Preben!!! (Yes, i named my weighted duvet :-) )

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 08:04 PM

Oh nooooo!!!!

Yay well done!
I may have coffee too

Weighted blankets are supposed to be really good!
Jasmine has one!
It's cute that you've named him!

Zurg 21-04-2022 08:45 PM

Jasmine is cool!!! Weighted blankets are the most awesome invention ever!!! I had one during a very short admission a number of years ago and i was like 'woah, how come i've survived for so long without a weighted blanket???' So i sent off an application for one, had my support worker and another helpful person back up my application, didn't hear a thing for close to a year when suddenly they phoned me and asked if i was still interested in getting one, lol. Yes, please!!! A couple of days later i had it delivered. I Think this is the only thing i have ever been granted and i shall bite them if they try to take it back!!!!

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 08:46 PM

That's amazing!
Jasmine struggles with sleep sometimes and it really helps her!
Don't think she's named it though :tongue2:

Zurg 21-04-2022 09:14 PM

For many years i struggled with embracing my weirdness. But when i finally gave in, i decided that naming stuff was an obvious part of it. Even my weirdest friends Think i'm a bit weird….

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 09:16 PM

I prefer weird people to normal people!!!

Zurg 21-04-2022 09:23 PM

When i grew up, being weird was really not cool. So i spent most of my childhood and youth with the other outcasts. I don't mind normal people, i just can't be like them if that makes sense….

Cacoethes 21-04-2022 09:28 PM

Yep same!!!

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 10:41 AM

Morning everyone!
I had a lie in! Got up at about 9:15

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 10:46 AM

I was up early, 9.30am!

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 11:01 AM

Morning tamo!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 11:23 AM

I'm ok. Going to Confession. How are you?

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 11:39 AM

Hope it goes ok!

I'm good thanks!
Nothing to do today!

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 02:45 PM

Anything you like to do?

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 02:48 PM

I'm in a strange mood where I want to do EVERYTHING but also NOTHING!! lol

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 03:12 PM

Oh dear!

one_step_closer 22-04-2022 03:30 PM

Kat, I have ordered some foam stuff that is meant to be good for getting rid of the black stuff. I also ordered a rope for drying things outside, it has clip things at the ends and I hope it will work. I think I have two ropes already outside but I don't want to use the one close to my bird feeder because of the potential of bird poo and I don't know if the other rope is still strong enough. Plus the neighbours will comment.

Beckie, that is not a lie in in my books! I wish I could get up a that time and call it a lie in. Have you found something that suits you to be doing?

I hope confession went well Tamo.

I'm feeling really low.

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 03:34 PM

I don't know why i wake up at that time!
Used to have to set an alarm to get up for carers at 10am and still want to sleep more!
But it suddenly stopped! Lol

I've done a few bits around the house! And taken prn because things are weird! And my new vapes came and having them chills me out a lot.
My brain just isn't cooperating!

Sorry to hear that lindsay
Here if you need anything

one_step_closer 22-04-2022 03:45 PM

That's a good time to be getting up though, I think.

I'm glad you've got some things done. I hope your PRN and vapes help get your brain to cooperate. Is that you going to continue with the vapes now?

Thanks for your kindness, I don't think there's anything anyone can do.

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 03:50 PM

Yes it is!

Thank you! :)
I think i probably will continue with the vapes! I only use them at home. But think I'll get a proper vape. Would be cheaper than keep buying disposable ones!

No worries. If there's anything you can think of I'm here!

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 05:51 PM

Are virtual cuddles ok osc?

one_step_closer 22-04-2022 06:09 PM

Yes Tamo, thank you.

How is everyone this evening?

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 06:10 PM

Slowly going out of my mind but ok lol! *thumbs up emoji* :p

Have you done much today?

one_step_closer 22-04-2022 06:19 PM

Don't go completely out of your mind please. Is there anything in particular going on?

I just went to Tesco today and the chemist of course. I put a wash on bit my outside clothes line was delivered later in the day so I just had to dry my clothes inside. It's getting so hard to start things that I need to be doing that are new in my to do list. I'm not doing everything in my to do list most days now.

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 06:21 PM

I hope i don't!
Just weird mood stuff! I'll live!

Well done for getting stuff done!
Just because you can't do every single thing doesn't mean you're not accomplishing stuff!

one_step_closer 22-04-2022 06:26 PM

Is someone coming to sort out your meds this evening? Would you talk to them about how you're feeling?

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 06:31 PM

Yep and yep!
Well, depends who it is! I like all of them but sometimes i get people i don't know and they just want to give meds and go!

tamobhuuta 22-04-2022 08:04 PM

I've had a good day: Confession, shower and listening to Harry Potter.

Cacoethes 22-04-2022 08:29 PM

That sounds nice tamo!

I have also showered! And put on clean pjs :-D

Cacoethes 23-04-2022 08:31 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 23-04-2022 12:20 PM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 23-04-2022 01:07 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Taking jasmine to a local race today! She's going to run with her friends. And there will be lots of stalls.

How are you? Any plans for today?

not_so_insig 23-04-2022 01:09 PM

I hope you have an nice time Beckie.

tamobhuuta 23-04-2022 01:57 PM

That sounds fun Cacoethes.
How are you insig?
My sister is visiting.

not_so_insig 23-04-2022 02:04 PM

I am ok thanks tamobhuuta. My disabled persons railcard came today. For some reason they wanted a photograph when I renewed it hence why I only had it now as the last one expired in December. I thought that they were going to print the photo on my railcard but nope they haven't. It took me ages to get an passport style photo but I was wondering what the point was.

tamobhuuta 23-04-2022 02:21 PM

That's weird...

one_step_closer 23-04-2022 03:52 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I hope you enjoy your day with Jasmine, Beckie.

I hope you have a nice day with your sister, Tamo, do you get up to much?

I'm glad your railcard is sorted now Dawn.

not_so_insig 23-04-2022 04:20 PM

Yes I can go anywhere by rail now. I want to go to Huddersfield though.

one_step_closer 23-04-2022 05:39 PM

To see Felix and Bolt?!
