Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 10:59 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:06 AM

Hoping to get some washing done today. And put my watch on charge. But they are short staffed.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:12 AM

I am ok but I had nightmares :( I was running away from monsters and then I was on an ED unit. I was so scared it was hard to get back to sleep.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:21 AM

That sounds awful
Hope you're feeling ok now

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:43 AM

Yes thank you. Have you managed to get a member of staff yet?

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 11:49 AM

I've just had 3 of them hassling me about various things.
I think someone else has come in so they aren't short staffed anymore

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 11:52 AM

That's good. Though I know it sucks being harassed.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 12:00 PM

They've taken my washing!
But can't find the charger for my watch.
I ALWAYS end up losing chargers in here.
Even though they are clearly labelled!
I've lost a plug as well. Which i already had to buy while here because they lost my phone charger.

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 12:41 PM

How difficult is it to not lose chargers!

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 12:55 PM

I know!
They are kept in a locked room, and each of us have our own labelled box to keep our chargers in!!!

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 01:14 PM

Do people borrow your charger? The staff and patients always end up borrowing mine but luckily it's found it's way back to me. We're allowed to keep our chargers on my ward.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 01:40 PM

They probably do. I wouldn't mind if they actually asked.
Really?! That's unusal!
I have my powerbank because the lead is really short. But my watch i need to charge in the room and the powerbank itself needs charging in the room.

not_so_insig 05-02-2022 02:58 PM

In my local psych unit you are allowed to charge stuff in your room. They only provide one socket however. In the previous unit there was multiple sockets.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 03:15 PM

There are a couple of sockets in my room.

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 04:37 PM

My ward has two sockets per bed but one is for the bed. It can be taken out to charge something if you don't need to move the bed up or something at that time.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 04:43 PM

You have moving beds?!
Ours are fixed to the floor!

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 06:19 PM

They're like medical beds with wheels and buttons to raise or lower the bed etc.

not_so_insig 05-02-2022 06:54 PM

Ours are fixed to the floor too.

one_step_closer 05-02-2022 06:58 PM

How is everyone doing this evening?

not_so_insig 05-02-2022 08:03 PM

I updated my amazon music app and it deleted my downloaded music and my playlists. So I have to redo everything.

Cacoethes 05-02-2022 08:34 PM

I've just been half napping

tamobhuuta 05-02-2022 08:49 PM

I went to Mass in Sign Language today. It's great because it's easy to follow and a nice small community. It must have been a special occasion because the Bishop was there.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 10:03 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 06-02-2022 11:15 AM

Hello Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 11:33 AM

Meh, as i always seem to be these days!


nonperson 06-02-2022 12:27 PM

Morning all.

Beckie, just read your r/v - have you seen Green Day live before!?

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 12:36 PM

Nope I haven't! Its been a dream of mine since i was about 12!!

nonperson 06-02-2022 12:40 PM

They are so so so SO ****ING good.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 12:45 PM

I'm SUPER excited!!!
Got really good seats too! Unobstructed view!

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 01:16 PM

Afternoon everyone, Oooh Green Day live sounds great! Lucky you.

There's snow here.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 01:27 PM

Been years since I've been to a concert!

Snow?! It's sunny here, as far as I can tell anyway!

nonperson 06-02-2022 01:53 PM

Really sunny here too. We were supposed to be having rain so I dunno when that's turning up.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 01:59 PM

Yeah rain was forecast here too

not_so_insig 06-02-2022 03:30 PM

Neighbours has been axed by Channel 5 in case people don't know. I am going to miss it.

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 03:32 PM

That's a shame. I don't watch it but I'm sure lots of people do. Do you know when it's going to happen or has it already finished?

It's sunny here now but still very windy.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 03:39 PM

I think people are still hoping it's going to be picked up hy another channel. Like when it was axed by the BBC.

I don't know if it's windy or not.
Yesterday a nurse asked if I wanted to come outside and I said no (was very tired) and she laughed and said 'do you really think I'd let you come out anyway!?' Rude.

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 03:41 PM

That's a bit of a stupid question for her to ask you then! The staff seem all over the place.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 03:45 PM

They really are!
There are very few sensible ones

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 03:46 PM

I hope you have more contact with the sensible ones then.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 03:57 PM

Unfortunately there are none in today!
And even the sensible ones are only sensible SOMETIMES!

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 06:00 PM

We could probably say that you are only sensible sometimes too. But I get you're in a hard place.

How is everyone this evening?

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 06:25 PM


I'm tired. Just had a coffee though
How are you?

one_step_closer 06-02-2022 06:32 PM

Will you sleep after having a coffee so late in the day?

I'm feeling alone.

Cacoethes 06-02-2022 07:27 PM

Yeah. I've been going to bed about midnight-1am and waking up at 8-9am which is sufficient sleep!
Well, apart from being woken up for blood sugars at stupid o clock!

Sorry to hear that. I'm always here! Though I know online isn't a replacement for irl people

Cacoethes 07-02-2022 07:10 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-02-2022 12:04 PM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-02-2022 12:18 PM

I'm good thanks!
Just annoyed at staff as usual lol!
They said they'd put my watch on charge 'later'
I need my powerbank too.
But they've probably forgotten, as usual!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-02-2022 12:39 PM

I'm ok. I woke up thinking it was 10am, got up and Mum pointed out if was only 9am. So I went back to bed until 11am!

Cacoethes 07-02-2022 12:41 PM

I wish I could lie in, would make the day go quicker!
