Been for a patch test for my eyebrow tint on Thursday
Got to see crisis team at some point. Can't remember what time. But they'll call me beforehand.
Then asda and pharmacy.

How about you?

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 12:11 PM

Just my clozapine blood test. I'm lucky that my dad drives me.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 12:19 PM

That's good
I wish I could have someone drive me places! Lol
Luckily most places around here are either walking distance or fairly easy to get the bus to.

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 12:23 PM

I used to walk into town for Mass but for a while I haven't been able. Now that I'm feeling better, that's one of my goals. It's only a twenty minute walk.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 12:29 PM

That's a good goal to have
I find walking helps

shadow-light 11-01-2022 12:30 PM

hi all

I'm sat waiting for a GP phone appointment... why they can't givwe a time I don't know because the result is that I have been sat staring at the phone since 8am as I'm scared that if I move i'll miss the call...

Anyone up to anything more interesting than phone staring?

shadow-light 11-01-2022 12:32 PM

oh... erm... bugger... tuns out call on the 18th not the 11th

well... that was a waste of 3 hours

not_so_insig 11-01-2022 12:35 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 12:37 PM

Ahhh how annoying Hazel!

Hi Dawn

shadow-light 11-01-2022 12:39 PM

yesterday i cooked a crossent for over 4 hours and could have started a fire
and today i wated for a call on the wronf date...

also it's 11 days into the year and I have already missed 3 medical appointments :laugh:

I think I need either a new brain or someone to sort out my schedual and like poke me when I should be doing something

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 12:46 PM

Yeah that's not great!
Do alarms help?

shadow-light 11-01-2022 01:43 PM


i have 3 diaries, 2 whitebords, and multiple alarms... but their effectiveness varies

its fine though. frustrating but used to it

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 01:55 PM

Oh wow.

It does sound very frustrating

shadow-light 11-01-2022 02:03 PM

fun of iffy brains i guess :laugh:

you up to much today? I have a woman coming to test my sound processing at 2. Really dont want her to come as dont really feel like seeing people but too late to cancel now

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 02:10 PM


I have crisis team, asda and pharmacy.
Crisis team should be here in about 10 minutes.
Pharmacy opens up again at 2 so I'll go out around then.

Ah that's annoying.
Sounds like it'll be good to get done though

not_so_insig 11-01-2022 03:25 PM

Hope crisis is ok Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 03:48 PM

Thanks Dawn

They didn't stay long thankfully
I don't have to see them tomorrow and they're handing me back to the cmht on Thursday!

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 04:04 PM

That was quick! Has anything changed since they started seeing you?

shadow-light 11-01-2022 04:05 PM

wow that's impressively quick... didn't they only sart seeing you again like a week ago?

shadow-light 11-01-2022 04:05 PM

Ha! snap

not_so_insig 11-01-2022 04:15 PM

That's good you dont have to see them tomorrow Beckie.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:18 PM

Nope nothing has changed.
But maybe they're now realising it's not actually psychosis
Well, they said I'm being handed back to the cmht but I guess it depends on what my cpn says on Thursday.

Yeah they started seeing me on Saturday last week!

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 04:22 PM

Them discharging you doesn't mean your worries are correct, just that they're incompetent.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:28 PM

We'll see what my cpn has to say on Thursday.
She'll probably consult with psych too, as he's the one that called them in the first place
We shall see!

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:50 PM

I just hope my eyebrow/nail appointment is done by the time of the cpn/crisis appointment!
I don't want to get in trouble!

shadow-light 11-01-2022 04:56 PM

no idea how long a eyebrow/nail appointment takes so can't really say much there

just had a text to inform me a missed ANOTHER meeting this morning... least it was only a voluntary thing, but still this is getting silly

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:03 PM

I googled and eyebrows should take about 25 minutes and nails AT LEAST an hour....so it'll be tight!

Oh no! I wish I knew what to suggest.

shadow-light 11-01-2022 05:06 PM

erm... I have apparently missed 2 calls from the DWP in the last hour... they are going to call again in the morning... erm... not sure what they want...

Ooo that is tight... no chance you can move the nail appointment is there?

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:11 PM

Oh dear :/
Always nerve wracking when you get calls (or letters) from them!

Nope. Its been booked for a month. And she's super busy.
I'd rather cancel the cpn/crisis appointment because they suck and I don't want to see them.

shadow-light 11-01-2022 05:18 PM

cancelling the CPN/crisis could have long term fall out though as they may make assumptions

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:22 PM

Yeah. I tried to cancel it. They wouldn't let me. Lol
I'll just ask nail lady how long it's going to take and I'll text cpn that I'm going to be late....
That probably won't work...
I'll email nail lady to see if she can do any earlier

shadow-light 11-01-2022 05:29 PM

I think its definitely best to try to keep the CPN/crisis appointment, a few mins late (as long as you let them know) may be ok, but not missing it entirely.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:30 PM

I've emailed nail lady. So hopefully she'll be able to fit me in a bit earlier!

shadow-light 11-01-2022 05:30 PM

i mean I am being a fully on hypocrite here... but I have recently learnt that the more you engage and the more you actually keep appointments and such the better they treat you in return

btw, this includes actually taking th eprescribed meds *looks knowingly*

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:34 PM

Yes true!

*whistles innocently*

shadow-light 11-01-2022 05:35 PM


hope the nail person gets back to you soon

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 05:45 PM

I'm sure she will!

Ugh I need to shower at some point

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 07:58 PM


I'm bored.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:00 PM


I know the feeling!

Have you been up to much today?

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:01 PM

Nah, got some of my observation done and played animal crossing because I'm obsessed since V bought me it for xmas.

You? Did you manage to shower?

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:02 PM

I've heard animal crossing is super addictive!

Yes I did!
Glad that's over and done with
I hate showers

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:05 PM

It is, it's terrible. For a game that doesn't have a story line the amount of time I spend playing it is shameful.

Yay for showering! I love the clean feeling you get after a shower, all tingly.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:15 PM

Jasmine plays it too
It does look fun!

The clean feeling is nice!
I just don't like actually being in the shower

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:25 PM

No, me neither. I always get cold really quickly, and it's always either too hot or too cold. I love having sensory issues :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:31 PM

Ah that sucks!
I've finally managed to get the temperature right in my shower!
But I hate it because of body image issues!
So I shower as quickly as possible!

shadow-light 11-01-2022 08:35 PM

I used to have animal crossing on my DS before I sold it! It really is oddly addictive

nonperson 11-01-2022 08:40 PM

I like being clean and I like the feeling of water in a shower and the process of wetting hair, washing hair, rinsing hair, washing skin, washing face, rinsing. I'm minorly obsessive about it and the order it all happens in. =/ And I always shower in the morning before work, it's always been like a bit of peace before going out into the chaotic world.

Funny how we're all different.

Oh and I ALWAYS put music on in the shower! Silent showers are freaky weird.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:42 PM

I had animal crossing pocket camp on my phone for a bit
That was quite addictive!

I hate showering in the mornings!
Don't know why!
I do do things in a very specific order though!

nonperson 11-01-2022 08:48 PM

I wouldn't be able to get up and go straight to work though. Or put tv on for a bit or something instead.

Does anyone play wordle? Not a game game as such.
