Argh I hate this! I need to wash the gunk out of my hair but I don't want to spasm in the shower.

nonperson 22-01-2022 04:05 PM

Can someone do it over the sink for you?

I need to go upstairs and attempt to wash my hair over the bath too. I seem to have intermittent warm water but not enough for a shower!

Beckie, I can call the plumbers in an emergency but I'm not deeming this an emergency so will wait until Monday if it doesn't fix itself by then.

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 04:08 PM

I could ask L. Hopefully the spasms will get better now I've taken PRN.

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 05:33 PM

I think it is an emergency!
No heating in this weather!

nonperson 22-01-2022 06:06 PM

I hope so, Tamo.

It's ok. I've borrowed a plug in heater. It's taken since 9:30 this morning to get from 12 to 16 degrees though... My bathroom towel rail can be turned on separately from the heating so that's working, I have a heated mattress protector so I'm toasty at night and the water isn't frozen so I can still wash my hair. It can wait until Monday.

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 06:52 PM

I showered and I didn't spasm :)

nonperson 22-01-2022 07:11 PM

Hooray! =D

shadow-light 22-01-2022 07:27 PM

we dont have any central heating and the pannel heaters have been broken for about 3 years, our landlord sucks. It's 13c in here at the moment, and that's with the fire on :blink:

usually doesn't bother me as I just dont seem to feel the cold, but for about 2 weeks now I have been CONSTANTLY freaking freezing and my hands/feet keep turing blue... I think it's my meds

Anyway, moan over :laugh:

How be people today?

nonperson 22-01-2022 08:01 PM

I guess I shouldn't be complaining then.

What's wrong with your fire?

shadow-light 22-01-2022 08:06 PM

Not sure, just doesn't seen to provide much warmth. There is an unused backboiler still in place behind it abd and wonder if it absorbs some of the heat... rarely get above 17-18c in this room. Usually we have fan heaters to help a little but electric prices are silly right now so rationing them

shadow-light 22-01-2022 08:06 PM

We own many blankets :laugh:

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 10:08 PM

I sat under 3 blankets earlier.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 09:44 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 23-01-2022 11:57 AM

Hi :) how are you?

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 12:11 PM

Not good at all


tamobhuuta 23-01-2022 12:15 PM

Hospital sucks. Are they looking after you?

I am ok. I need to put proper clothes on today because I'm going to Mass later.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 04:15 PM


I hope you start to feel better soon Beckie, even if you believe you won't. Are you occupying yourself with anything?

I hope you enjoy/enjoyed Mass Tamo.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 04:19 PM

Tesco are selling Easter eggs. I want one. I'll maybe get one as a reward if I'm up at 10.30am most of the week. I'd be embarrassed if people saw what I was buying though!

nonperson 23-01-2022 04:24 PM

I nearly bought a bag of mini eggs yesterday, Lindsay. Kinda wish I had. I don't think anyone would judge if you bought an Easter egg now! And I think that would be an excellent getting out of bed reward. =)

My hot water randomly fixed itself enough for me to have a shower which has improved my mood massively. Heating is still off but a shower was much needed.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 04:32 PM

I feel too unwell to occupy myself with anything
I can't really do anything apart from lay in bed, trying not to be sick.
Don't know what they did to me

Defo get an easter egg lindsay

Yay for hot water!

nonperson 23-01-2022 04:39 PM

That sucks, Beckie =( Maybe it's the stress of the situation causing you to feel so unwell. Have you ordered in a supply of Coke zero?

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 05:49 PM

Beckie, is this a med they want you to continue taking or was it a mistake? I hope the horrible effects pass soon.

I'm glad you had hot water for a shower NP. Do you think your heating will magically sort itself out too? Are you going to get in touch with someone tomorrow?

nonperson 23-01-2022 05:57 PM

Nah I don't think the heating will sort itself out. The hot water may have been a fluke. I'll email for a plumber tomorrow as soon as I get into work and they'll be able to look at it the same day.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 06:03 PM

Are you warm enough for now?

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 06:15 PM

This was the mistake med lindsay

I have not ordered coke zero!
Tbh I don't feel up to it. Or even drinking it!

nonperson 23-01-2022 06:51 PM

Oh no, you must be really sick =( What if you order some and have it there ready for when you're feeling better?

Yeah I'm warm enough, Lindsay. Got a plug in heater, a million thermals and a cat on my lap. =P

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 08:57 PM

That may be a good idea.
I may be moved tomorrow though.
If there are beds anywhere

Glad you've warmed up np!

nonperson 23-01-2022 09:04 PM

It has taken since 9:30am yesterday morning to get this room up to 17.5 degrees though.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 09:25 PM

That's grim!

nonperson 23-01-2022 11:07 PM

I'm pretty toasty now, it's fine.

It is 12 degrees upstairs though.

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 09:39 AM

Hope you managed to stay warm np!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 24-01-2022 11:26 AM

Hi, how are you?

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 11:41 AM

Hey tamo
Didn't get much sleep but not feeling quite as terrible as I have for the last couple of days

How are you?

tamobhuuta 24-01-2022 12:01 PM

That's good.

I'm ok but things are dtuuiiiytdwwdfguu with my CPN.

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 01:02 PM

Ugh. CPNs can be annoying

tamobhuuta 24-01-2022 01:12 PM

Is there much to do on the ward

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 01:41 PM

Nope. Nothing.
It's not a proper ward. It's an 'assessment ward' apparently
So nothing is happening
We don't even have a kitchen or dining area or anything.
It's just part of a big ward that's been sectioned off

shadow-light 24-01-2022 02:05 PM


one_step_closer 24-01-2022 03:47 PM

Hi everyone. I hope your days are going ok.

nonperson 24-01-2022 06:33 PM

I have working radiatorrrrrrrssssss!!! =D

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 06:49 PM

Hey everyone!

Yaaaay np!

one_step_closer 24-01-2022 06:50 PM

Yay! Now you can get all cosy. Did it take them long to fix whatever was going on?

one_step_closer 24-01-2022 06:50 PM

Hi ninja Beckie.

nonperson 24-01-2022 07:02 PM

Maybe like half an hour. It was a tiny part inside that I was told had naturally come to the end of its life. Geordi is literally hugging the radiator at the moment.

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 07:28 PM

Aww bless him!

not_so_insig 24-01-2022 08:26 PM

Yay for working radiator!

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 08:31 PM

I have coke zero!
And washing capsules (because this is the only ward that doesn't supply them)
Thank goodness for deliveroo!

not_so_insig 24-01-2022 08:48 PM

That's good Beckie.

I have had a delivery today from amazon and royal mail.

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 08:56 PM


Anything exciting Dawn?

not_so_insig 24-01-2022 09:39 PM

I had stickers via Royal mail but I ordered 7 and only 1 arrived. The seller said that they would send the missing ones out when I informed them of the missing ones. I have ordered from them before and usually have good service so if the missing stickers arrive then I won't be leaving negative feedback as it was an ebay item.

My amazon shopping order was nothing interesting.
