Yeah it is weird!

All my days are messed up still!
Combination of isolating and working random shifts. Especially as I'm working tomorrow and I haven't done a Sunday in soooo long!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 11:26 AM

Hello both.

nonperson 08-01-2022 11:26 AM

My weeks are usually pretty structured so having two weeks off plus me travelling to people and people travelling to me has really thrown me. I swear it was Thursday yesterday. =/

Yeah I'm ok I suppose. You?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 11:41 AM

I hope your shift goes well Cacoethes.
Do you have any plans for today np?

nonperson 08-01-2022 12:00 PM

Didn't see your ninja post there, tamo. How're you?

No plans today. Just a food shop later.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:03 PM

Hey tamo

That must be really confusing np!

I'm not working today tamo.
Today I have to see the crisis team, go to asda and pharmacy and piercing place.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:03 PM

I'm ok. Just powering through my morning anxiety. It's no way near as persistent as my afternoon/evening anxiety.

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:10 PM

Ah OK. I hope you can get all that done!

We're taking down the Christmas tree this weekend.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:15 PM

Was it a real tree or plastic tree?

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 12:20 PM

It's real. And big. And excessively decorated.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 12:45 PM

Oh wow!
Good luck with that then!

tamobhuuta 08-01-2022 01:42 PM

Did you have a Christmas tree?

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 02:09 PM

Well, I had a 1ft tall rainbow tree! To put on my windowsill

not_so_insig 08-01-2022 03:30 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 04:05 PM

Hi dawn

not_so_insig 08-01-2022 04:07 PM

Hello Beckie are you working today?

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 04:16 PM

Nope. I'm working tomorrow though

Are you up to much today?

nonperson 08-01-2022 08:18 PM

Quick, someone talk to me so I can delay food shopping.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 08:19 PM

Noooo go and do your food shopping!!!
Tis important!

nonperson 08-01-2022 08:24 PM


It is important. I think it's especially worse because I need to buy stuff for work lunches again, so that's just reminding me that it's not long until Monday.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 08:28 PM

Ah yes. Food shopping with a good dose of reality!

nonperson 08-01-2022 08:33 PM

Venom is only on All 4 for another four hours so that might do nicely as a reality antidote.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 08:44 PM

Ah yes! Definitely!

nonperson 08-01-2022 08:48 PM

So... I suppose I had better go.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 08:53 PM

Doooo it!

nonperson 08-01-2022 10:06 PM

Done it!

Forgot it closed at 9 though so it was a bit rushed. Nice and quiet though.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 10:22 PM

Yay well done!

It was really busy when I went earlier

nonperson 08-01-2022 10:25 PM

I may have cheered out loud when I pulled into the car park. I've been going much earlier lately, still evening but it's not really quiet enough. Probably not as busy as in the day time though or Sundays.

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 10:34 PM

It's always best when it's quiet!
Going late at night is.good also because loads of things are reduced!

My phone has decided to open ryl in a different way so I keep having to log in again. And close the browser myself..how irritating!

nonperson 08-01-2022 11:28 PM

A lot of the shelves were completely empty though, that's always a risk.

That's weird!

Cacoethes 08-01-2022 11:52 PM

Ah yes that's true.
When I used to go after seeing Jasmine, so around 7-8pm there was never any coke zero on the shelves. But they've actually got a lot better at that because for the last 6 months or so there's been plenty by the time I get there in the evening. And that's the only thing I really care about lol

Very weird!

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 10:07 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 11:44 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 11:48 AM

Could be better.
Just waiting for crisis team now.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 11:58 AM

Do you want then to arrive earlier or later?

I am ok. All I've got to do today is go to Mass. And I'm hoping my coping skills will keep the anxiety at bay.

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 12:02 PM

Don't really mind.
I don't have work until 6
He will be here in about half an hour

I hope you enjoy mass
You do so well with your coping skills

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 12:07 PM

Thanks. I hope the appointment is helpful.

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 12:15 PM

Thank you.
It probably won't be lol

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 01:57 PM

How was it?

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 02:01 PM

Not great.
But he did say someone else was going to see me but he wanted to see me because he hadn't seen me in ages which was nice

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 02:06 PM

That's kind. Did he tell you when you will meet the other person?

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 02:11 PM

It's usually someone different every time.
Just depends who's in.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 02:15 PM

It's the same here. Sometimes they remember me and I have no idea who they are...

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 02:32 PM

Most of them know me.
I remember some of them.
One of them I've known for about 7 years now!
He started off as an activities coordinator on the ward, now he's nurse in charge.
Some of them I don't remember and it's awkward.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 03:47 PM


Are you working today?

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 03:48 PM

I start at 6.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 03:49 PM

That's good. Sounds like you're doing well there?

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 03:54 PM

Yeah I really enjoy working there!

tamobhuuta 09-01-2022 04:08 PM

I think a customer-facing job would freak me out.

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 04:12 PM

I thought it would freak me out until I started doing it!
I was surprised at how quickly I came out of my shell!
