It's not a nice feeling tbh. But you get used to it

Well done for emailing.

one_step_closer 08-01-2023 04:51 PM


What are you up to for the rest of your day?

Cacoethes 08-01-2023 04:52 PM

Will probably do dinner in a bit.
Apart from that, nothing!

tamobhuuta 08-01-2023 04:57 PM

Hi guys, I went to my meeting. Now eating Greggs in a Costa seating area. But I also have a Costa latte so it's ok, right?

one_step_closer 08-01-2023 04:59 PM

Sounds fine to me Tamo, you can't split yourself into two. How was the meeting?

Do you know what you're having for dinner, Beckie?

I'm just doing my usual. Internetting for a while, trying to read, watching TV. There's been a new Casualty on so I'll watch that.

Cacoethes 08-01-2023 05:13 PM

Don't see why not tamo
I think generally, people in retail aren't paid well enough to care about what people are doing in their shops/cafes.

I do not. Possibly a fried egg sandwich.

I haven't watched casualty in years. Probably don't even know anyone in it anymore

one_step_closer 08-01-2023 05:19 PM

That reminds me, I was craving a sausage sandwich for dinner but I had pizza left so I'll need to put a reminder in my phone to have a sausage sandwich tomorrow!

Fried egg sandwiches are good too. Do you like the yolk to be runny or not?

Cacoethes 08-01-2023 05:32 PM

Sausage sandwiches are top tier

I do like a runny yolk, but not in a sandwich because you bite into it and it makes a mess

tamobhuuta 08-01-2023 08:31 PM

Spread the yolk evenly over the bottom layer before you put on the rest of the sandwich.

Cacoethes 08-01-2023 09:02 PM

Oooh yes.

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 09:21 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 09-01-2023 09:34 AM

Morning Beckie :)
How are you today??

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 09:40 AM

I'm ok thanks!

not_so_insig 09-01-2023 11:40 AM

Morning all.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 11:56 AM

Morning, almost afternoon. What are you all getting up to today?

not_so_insig 09-01-2023 11:58 AM

I have nothing to do today other than try and find a cat brush. Then to see if my cat likes to be brushed.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 12:02 PM

Are you going out to get a brush? Crookshanks likes to rub his face on his brush.

not_so_insig 09-01-2023 12:08 PM

No I have one somewhere in my flat. He shows no interest in toys however so I am reluctant to spend on anything but food in case it's a waste of money/he hates it.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 12:11 PM

Good luck with the hunt! What age is he? Crookshanks doesn't play with his toys much I think he mostly wants to sleep because he's getting older.

not_so_insig 09-01-2023 12:12 PM

He is only 4 so still fairly young.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 12:18 PM

Does he sit on your lap?

not_so_insig 09-01-2023 12:20 PM

He half sits on my lap. He sat on my mum's lap the other day though.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2023 01:09 PM

Hi guys. N never brushed her cat. He preferred just to shed everywhere.

I was all ready to have the veggie option at lunch but I heard another patient say it was too spicy. I am such a baby when it comes to spice!

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 01:22 PM

Half a lap is better than nothing, maybe he'll progress.

I'm not so good with spice either, Tamo. Did they manage to get you an alternative?

tamobhuuta 09-01-2023 01:26 PM

No. Cereal bar it is. But a tasty one! With a yoghurty coating! And a nice cup of tea :)

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 01:34 PM

Those kind of bars are nice. :-) I'd leave the tea though! Do you ever drink any flavoured teas?

tamobhuuta 09-01-2023 01:37 PM

I like herbal teas. Especially pukka, and best of all the night ones. Mum got me a whole box of just night ones! I also like posh teas like ceylon and darjeeling. Do you like any tea at all?

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 01:39 PM

I'm not a fan of herbal teas. Ugh!

tamobhuuta 09-01-2023 01:41 PM

I find mint and camomile a bit boring but I like most others. I think you're weird!

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 01:42 PM

I don't like tea at all. Or coffee. I tried a gingerbread tea someone gave me but it just tasted too much like tea!

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 01:49 PM

I like normal tea but rarely drink it.
I prefer coffee

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 01:59 PM

Do you still get your caramel coffee sachet things, Beckie?

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 02:36 PM

I don't get the caramel ones often now because 19 is a lot to spend at once on just coffee.
I've been getting non-caramel sachets from asda. Which definitely works out more expensive in the end but a box is 1.10. Which I'm more likely to have.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 03:40 PM

That's a shame you can't be having the caramel ones ALL the time. At least you're getting coffee though.

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 03:45 PM

Sometimes i can't afford it and i struggle tbh!
As long as I have some form of caffeine I'm ok
If i have no caffeine I get AWFUL headaches that painkillers won't shift

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 03:53 PM

I'm glad I don't drink coffee! I only drink caffeine in soft drinks and I don't drink much. Just shout if you're about to have a coffee running out time and I will send reinforcements (sometimes)!

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 04:02 PM

Yes it's best not to get addicted like I am!
Thank you! That's very kind!

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 04:48 PM

Do you remember when you first started drinking coffee?

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 04:51 PM

I have distinct memories of drinking it in the adolescent unit, so I was probably 13-14 when i started.
I did go through tea phases and coffee phases until a couple of years ago when it stuck on coffee!
I drink tea.when I go to my mum's. But only because they grind their coffee beans and Idk how to do it.

one_step_closer 09-01-2023 05:06 PM

Ok, you must be properly addicted now. :laugh:

What are you doing this evening?

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 05:11 PM

Though I'm pretty sure they try to use decaff in hospitals. I imagine they would in adolescent.
The smoking age was 16 back then. Wild.

I need to do dinner at some point
I'm trying to watch tv but i can't focus at all
I 'watched' a whole film just now but couldn't tell you anything about it!

How about you?

Zurg 09-01-2023 06:35 PM

Mmmm…. Coffee is soooo good!!!
I spent most of my many sections sitting in a comfy chair and smoking and drinking coffee. There was nothing else to do. I really sympathise with the patients that didn't smoke or enjoy coffee :(
Tbh, i still spend admisisons, however short, in the smoking area with a cup of coffee. Hospitals are ****ing boring!! Minus three stars, would not recommend!!!

Cacoethes 09-01-2023 06:41 PM

You can't even smoke in hospital here anymore. You need to have leave written up and have to go off site. And even then, you only get let out 4 times a day. Unless something is kicking off and the staff can't take you at all.
Thank **** I don't smoke anymore

tamobhuuta 09-01-2023 08:59 PM

All the smokers here vape as well and they're allowed to do that anywhere.

Cacoethes 10-01-2023 07:33 AM

We were allowed disposable vapes anywhere. But not proper vapes that need to be charged.

Morning everyone

Zurg 10-01-2023 10:07 AM

I vape too but that counts as smoking in danish hospitals. The mental hospital has closed gardens with very high fences around them and that is where people are allowed to smoke/vape.

Also, morning all :)
How are you all??

Cacoethes 10-01-2023 10:45 AM

We used to be able to smoke in the gardens, but years ago, the NHS decided that they need to set an example and not allow smoking on ANY Nhs hospital grounds.
Pretty much no one agrees with it,.even staff and non smokers!

I'm ok. Though it is pouring down and got soaked going to and from the gym!

tamobhuuta 10-01-2023 11:00 AM

It's so dark here, it looks like evening.
I've got ward rounds at 12pm and my mum's coming so she's coming to see me before.

Cacoethes 10-01-2023 11:14 AM

Very dark here too

Good luck for ward round!

tamobhuuta 10-01-2023 11:16 AM

Thanks. Are you up to much today?
