My surgery makes you fill in a form online and then they phone at some point within 48 hours and tell you if they've decided you need help or not and what kind of help it is. It's much better than phoning and having to wait in a queue.

Cacoethes 02-02-2022 04:57 PM

You can do that with mine too lindsay
I just prefer to call for some reason!

one_step_closer 02-02-2022 06:25 PM

I think you can only call mine if you can't use the internet. You have phone bravery for phoning the surgery, how is that?!

Cacoethes 02-02-2022 07:35 PM

I'm much better with phones these days!
I think since I started work and I'm more sociable

tamobhuuta 03-02-2022 09:28 AM

Good morning.

Cacoethes 03-02-2022 10:02 AM

Morning tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-02-2022 12:25 PM

I'm ok. I had a call with the neurologist who said my brain scan was abnormal, even beyond what you would expect with my schizophrenia and meds.

How are you?

Cacoethes 03-02-2022 12:53 PM

Is there any plan in place?

I'm very tired.
Even more so than usual

tamobhuuta 03-02-2022 02:02 PM

Yeah, I need another scan, preferably an MRI, if i feel OK with that. And he's going to increase my lamotrogine

Is a nap an option?

Cacoethes 03-02-2022 02:22 PM

MRIs aren't too bad. I always get really tired and bored in them

I've been napping on and off all day.
Don't really have the energy to sit up for long

tamobhuuta 04-02-2022 11:47 AM

Morning anyone x

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 12:45 PM


one_step_closer 04-02-2022 03:21 PM

Afternoon. How is everyones day going?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 03:36 PM

Not great.

How are you?

one_step_closer 04-02-2022 03:38 PM

I'm sorry to hear that Beckie. I hope that you even have a small good point today.

I'm not too good either.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 03:55 PM

Thanks. Not looking likely unfortunately

Sorry to hear that

nonperson 04-02-2022 07:17 PM

Evening all.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 07:48 PM

Hey np
How are you?

nonperson 04-02-2022 07:57 PM

Meh *shrug*


Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:04 PM


Been up to much?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:14 PM

*big hugs for you if wanted*

Just work, as usual!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:17 PM

Thank you :)

Fun times!
Weekend off now?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:20 PM

Yep, weekend off. I'm not scheduled for any weekends until March some time, I think.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:31 PM

That's good.
Any plans?

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:33 PM

The rota goddess was kind.

Nah, no plans. My friend is busy (her turn to work) and she has her sister over so I probably won't be seeing them. I -might- venture to a real shop to find a new work backpack because after 9 years the zip on mine has finally broken enough to be intolerable. And online is no help because I dunno what size I need!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 08:51 PM


Ah ok.
A real shop?! Are those even still a thing?!

nonperson 04-02-2022 08:55 PM

They are! Although I can count on one hand the number of real shops I've been to since covid, not counting the supermarket, so some of them are definitely still real!

If I'd have gotten my act together I could have gone last week on Friday when I was off work but I might just have to suck it up and go on a weekend day. *wail*

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:10 PM

Any particular shop you are thinking of?

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:16 PM

Well... there's a Millets and Mountain Warehouse and a Sports Direct in one town nearby so I'd probably go there. They have sales on at the moment too. And there's stress-free parking and a Morrisons too.

Or I might just hole up at home and ignore the problem until another time.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:24 PM

That doesn't sound too bad!

You shouldn't do that!

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:31 PM

It'll be busy though and... shops and people. =|

No, I shouldn't leave it, but I could!

The bag situation is not desperate yet, in my opinion, it possibly is in others' opinions. I'll probably go as far as using a carrier bag instead before I actually get a new backpack. XD

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:38 PM

I know it sucks!
But it will be a good thing to get over and done with!


nonperson 04-02-2022 09:41 PM

Oh I definitely should get it over and done with.

It's already held together with safety pins. Working zips and useable pockets would be nice I suppose.

Are you watching anything on the ipad tonight?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 09:45 PM

It'll be so worth it!

I'm not sure.
I'm listening to music at the moment but I was trying to think of what i could watch.

nonperson 04-02-2022 09:55 PM

I'm listening to Radio X's Indie Night. Some good tunes. I'm not sure if it's what I'm in the mood for though.

More Marvel? Something new? Something old but comforting? Star Wars?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:04 PM

So much choice!
I'll have a browse

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:12 PM

I often give up trying to choose something to watch because there is too much choice! And long for the days of only 5 channels to choose from, haha!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:22 PM

I know! It's so hard now!

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:29 PM

This modern streaming world is not made for those who find it hard to make decisions or don't know what they're in the mood to watch.

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:48 PM

It really isn't!

I might just watch harry potter again.
Ultimate comfort film!

nonperson 04-02-2022 10:53 PM


Good choice. I approve. =P

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 10:55 PM

Thought you might :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:09 PM


You have to include The Fantastic Beasts films too.

Which reminds me that as I binged all the HP ones last weekend I should continue with Fantastic Beasts too this weekend.

Might not have time to do real world shopping after all. Shame. >.>

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:14 PM

Oh I do!

Yes you definitely should!

Haha! Yes, such a shame :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

Well that's my weekend planned then. Screw real life necessities. I -need- to watch films instead.

Gotta get priorities right, right? =D

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

I feel like this is partially my fault :p

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:24 PM

Also, when is the third Fantastic Beasts film out?!

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:30 PM

8th April! Not too long to go!

nonperson 04-02-2022 11:57 PM

Oooooh! Who did they recast as Grindelwald?

Cacoethes 04-02-2022 11:59 PM

Mads Mikkelsen
I'm going to miss Johnny depp
