Cacoethes 19-10-2020 06:01 PM

I agree!

What did you watch?
I tried crochet once. It was annoying!

yoyogirl 19-10-2020 06:15 PM

I had my first law lecture of the week.

tamobhuuta 19-10-2020 06:27 PM

That's cool, Law must be hard work.

Cacoethes 19-10-2020 06:29 PM

I hate waiting for carers

tamobhuuta 19-10-2020 08:49 PM

Did they get to you yet?

Cacoethes 19-10-2020 08:52 PM

Yep. But now waiting for them again to do night meds!

tamobhuuta 19-10-2020 08:53 PM

What time are they meant to be coming?

Cacoethes 19-10-2020 08:58 PM

Around 8:30 usually.
But could be earlier, could be later.
I never know!

tamobhuuta 19-10-2020 09:11 PM

I'm usually in bed by then!

Cacoethes 19-10-2020 09:22 PM

I like to go to bed at 9 but they are sometimes later than that which is annoying

[Luna] 20-10-2020 09:22 AM

Morning all, how is everyone?

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 10:16 AM

Morning Luna
I am tired
I think I had a seizure in my sleep :plain:

How are you?

[Luna] 20-10-2020 10:41 AM

Oh no, that doesn't sound good at all.

I'm tired. Trying to get things done.
What are you up to today?

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 10:46 AM

It's not. Hey ho. Got to deal with it!

Have you got much to do today?

I've just got my depot and then asda then waiting around for carers. Thrilling day!

[Luna] 20-10-2020 11:00 AM

I hope the depot and ASDA go smoothly.

I've got housework and writing to do then I've got my exercise class this afternoon

one_step_closer 20-10-2020 11:15 AM

Morning everyone. Looks like you have lots of plans for the day.

My support worker is supposed to be phoning me to arrange for us to go to the gym this week. I really don't want to go, I feel fragile enough and the new layout of the gym because of COVID makes me feel anxious.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 11:40 AM

Thanks :)

Good luck with all your tasks Luna!

Morning lindsay
Could you ask to do something else with your support worker? Like go for a coffee or something?

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 11:52 AM

Morning guys. I'm p***ed off that i mistakenly took meds when I shouldn't because of my blood test :(

one_step_closer 20-10-2020 12:54 PM

I think my support worker thinks I'm ready to go back to the gym. She's very forward focused and wants to get on with things. My CPN is the only person who understands my pace and she doesn't force things on me.

Does that mean you can't have your blood test Tamo?

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 01:09 PM

I thought not but my CPN says it's still worth doing but to check with nurse doing the test.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 01:36 PM

Oh that's annoying lindsay.
Is it worth trying to explain to her how you feel?

one_step_closer 20-10-2020 01:46 PM

I hope everything gets sorted out Tamo.

My support worker just phoned and I told her the gym made me extra anxious the way it is now so she said I can go on the bus to where the gym is and we'll just go for a walk.

What's everyone up to?

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 01:58 PM

That seems like an ok compromise. How do you feel about it?

I'm just watching TV.
My legs are killing after that walk as they usually do

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 03:47 PM

Good afternoon all. My blood test was fine.

yoyogirl 20-10-2020 04:09 PM

I am so annoyed I can’t use my headphones to listen to my lecturers with my hearing aids in.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 04:27 PM

Glad your blood test was ok tamo

I think I can hear a wasp or something but I can't find anything and it's driving me mad!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 04:45 PM

How frustrating yoyo.

That would bug me too Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 04:49 PM

I think I might be hearing things

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 04:52 PM

I get that sometimes too, don't *think* i need to worry about it but might be worth mentioning it to your carer or care coordinator.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 05:01 PM

It probably isn't even worth mentioning
I'm sure it's fine!

yoyogirl 20-10-2020 05:08 PM

Yeah it is I think I am gonna try to see my AirPods work with it as a work around it.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 05:25 PM

I'm hungry but it's not dinner time yet.
I may have a snack!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 05:27 PM

Oooo what snack?

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 05:29 PM

I have these fibre one cake sqaure things. I have the birthday cake flavour and they are rather nice!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 05:44 PM

That does sound yummy. I like birthday cake flavour protein bars.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 06:07 PM

They are rather yummy!
I've not tried protein bars I don't think

yoyogirl 20-10-2020 06:08 PM

They are lovely, but some can be very tasteless, it is hit and miss.

not_so_insig 20-10-2020 06:15 PM

Either it's the day for hearing things or i have heard an ice cream van.

nonperson 20-10-2020 06:59 PM

Might've been one of those out of season ones selling drugs. >.>

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 07:01 PM

Drugs?!

chinahorse 20-10-2020 07:01 PM

Theres one near me that sells eggs and milk.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 07:05 PM

Ooo that's handy!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 07:12 PM

You might as well tell someone Cacoethes, just so they know.

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 07:15 PM

Yeah you're probably right tamo

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 07:38 PM

I have exciting news: we're having pizza and pancakes for dinner!

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 07:39 PM

Ooo yummy!

tamobhuuta 20-10-2020 07:55 PM

Have you got plans for dinner?

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 08:00 PM

I had carrot and coriander soup. Not as exciting as your dinner!
It was quite nice though.

I've been looking at flights to New Zealand/Thailand that I'm never going to be able to afford *sigh*

[Luna] 20-10-2020 08:14 PM

Hi again

Cacoethes 20-10-2020 08:20 PM

Hi Luna!
How was your exercise class?
