Hi everyone. Hi Luna, nice to see you here. How is your day going so far?

When will you have more money, Beckie? 87p is scary! I've already changed my bedding so I'm lucky. I hope it's not too much of a task for you. Can you do some reading?

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 02:47 PM

Hey lindsay!
How are you?

I get paid on Friday. Unless i get the cost of living payment thing before then.
Well done for changing your bedding! It's one of the jobs i hate most.
I could try and do some reading

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 03:08 PM

Hi everyone :) my Internet is still intermittent.
I thought I asked for a veggie sausage at lunch but it tasted REALLY meaty, I didn't eat it.

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 03:12 PM

Hey tamo!

That's a shame.
Hospital food can often be a bit dodgy

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 04:11 PM

What are you up to?

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 04:29 PM

I'm rather bored!

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 04:36 PM

Would it help to get out the house, go for a walk?

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 04:39 PM

I have nowhere to go
I don't like walking without a purpose!

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 04:43 PM

Me neither. Hmmmm. I don't know what to suggest. Does your home need cleaning?

one_step_closer 25-09-2022 04:44 PM

I've never had a veggie sausage that fooled me, I hope it wasn't a meat one you got. Did you get a replacement meal, Tamo?

Have you changed your bedding yet, Beckie? It's annoying but will take up a bit of your time.

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 04:52 PM

No, I just ate the beans and mash. I didn't finish it, I wasn't that hungry.

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 04:52 PM

No my neighbour cleaned while i was away
I do still need to put clean bed sheets on the bed and put the washing away. And shower.
I'll do it after dinner

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 07:17 PM

How's everyone getting on?

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 07:25 PM

Not bad!
Done all the stuff!

How are you getting on?

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 07:27 PM

Well done :)

I'm doing ok. L brought me McDonald's!

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 07:53 PM

Thanks :)

Nice! What did you have?

tamobhuuta 25-09-2022 08:02 PM

Veggie burger and a malteser mcflurry.

Cacoethes 25-09-2022 08:13 PM

Did you enjoy it?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 07:01 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 08:16 AM

Morning, how are you?

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 08:45 AM

Morning all. My back hurts but I am ok otherwise.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 08:50 AM

Sorry your back hurts :( do you have any plans for today?

I have been up since 6am and it's not been a good start.

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 08:56 AM

Yes I am on holiday tamobhuuta so we are off to see a pier. I dont know of any other plans other than going to Sainsbury's. I have slight blurred vision so forgive any typos.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 08:59 AM

That sounds fun. The pier bit. Not the Sainsbury's bit!

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 09:05 AM

Yes I am definitely going on a pier this holiday.

I am being paid the dwp pip cost of living payment tomorrow so if anyone is on pip it might land in your bank account tomorrow. It's marked as dwp col in case people are wondering why they're suddenly 150 better off.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 09:07 AM

I shall look forward to that.

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 09:50 AM

Hey guys

I'm ok thanks.
Had a nurse appointment this morning.
Blood pressure, bloods and weight.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 10:08 AM

Everything OK?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 10:37 AM

Blood pressure was high apparently.
Hopefully won't have to wait too long for bloods.
I think it's just routine meds related checks.
And also they couldn't check electrolytes last time because the lab messed up the samples.

I do have a massive headache though! Paracetamol didn't work!

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 10:41 AM

Would other painkillers help? Ibuprofen?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 10:55 AM

Didn't think of that!

one_step_closer 26-09-2022 02:40 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you enjoy your holiday, Dawn. I hope your sore back passes and doesn't get in the way of you having a good time.

Are things getting any better, Tamo? I'm sorry things got off to a bad start today. It doesn't mean the whole day has to be bad though.

I see you have figured out the cause of your headache, Beckie! Are you feeling better now?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 02:54 PM

Hey lindsay!

Yes i have!
The headache has gone! Still feeling a little dazed but I've just put some cauliflower cheese bakes in the oven which will hopefully help!

How are you doing?

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 04:24 PM

I hope you enjoy your bake Cacoethes.

How are you osc?

one_step_closer 26-09-2022 04:55 PM

I hope that helps, Beckie. But if it doesn't you'll have eaten something tasty so that's a win. I've just had super noodles.

I'm feeling a bit mentally wobbly but will be ok.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 04:59 PM

*hugs* if wanted

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 05:14 PM

Thanks tamo!

I feel a bit sick after eating but it was tasty!
I haven't had super noodles in ages! What flavour?

Sorry you're not feeling great lindsay

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 05:11 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 27-09-2022 08:27 AM

Morning all. I slept better last night but I am still in pain.

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 10:00 AM

I slept terribly

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 10:10 AM

Sorry to hear that. I slept better. My dad's visiting in a minute, and my sister too, I think. What are you two up to?

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 10:13 AM


That sounds nice. I hope you enjoy your visit!

I'm at hospital for my echocardiogram.
Big bang theory is on the tv!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 01:14 PM

How was the ecg?

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 01:26 PM

It was an echo, not ecg.
It was fine thanks! Always a bit awkward but the lady was nice.

How are you?

one_step_closer 27-09-2022 03:53 PM

I'm glad your echo went ok, Beckie. It's embarrassing getting your boobs out! I just pretend it's not happening. What else have you been up to?

I hope you enjoyed your visit, Tamo.

How is your pain, Dawn.

I was at the gym group. Supposed to be going for an informal walk tomorrow with a couple of people but they both can't come this week so I'm just going to go to Tesco.

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 04:14 PM

I think I've been naked in front of health professionals so much over the years that I'm not too bothered about it anymore! Especially since giving birth. All dignity was lost after that! XD

Haven't really been up to much. Got invited for my seasonal covid jab so having that tomorrow. About to go to asda now.

Well done for going to the gym group lindsay!
That's a shame about the walk

one_step_closer 27-09-2022 04:44 PM

Another covid jab! Have fun in Asda!

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 06:05 PM

Yep! Hoping i won't get any side effects. I only did with the first one tbh so i should be fine!

Thank you!
I got grapes!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 07:24 PM

L gave me grapes yesterday, they were nommy. My visits were good thanks, and I saw the psych, which wasn't as fun. I've also had blood tests. It's been jam packed!

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 08:44 PM

I love grapes!
I don't get them a lot though because they are expensive.
Glad your visits were good!
Psychs are very rarely fun tbh.

I had blood tests yesterday. I have double checked what the nurse took the blood for but only the full blood count result has come back? They were also meant to test for electrolytes and something else. Either they've messed it up again, the results are taking longer or the nurse submitted the wrong bloods. Idk.
