I had a tuna mayo sandwich

Yeah it does tend to get you the next day

tamobhuuta 06-05-2021 03:17 PM

Well done for the sandwich.

I've started feeling anxious so I'm going to work through my coping list. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 06-05-2021 03:24 PM

Thanks :)

That's a good idea
Hope you feel better soon

I'm watching line of duty

tamobhuuta 06-05-2021 03:28 PM

Are you enjoying it?

Cacoethes 06-05-2021 03:34 PM

Yes i am!

tamobhuuta 06-05-2021 03:43 PM

I'm watching Friends and now I'm going to do a wordsearch.

Cacoethes 06-05-2021 03:58 PM

Sounds good

not_so_insig 06-05-2021 04:35 PM

I have been for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road. My polling station is in the park so I voted whilst I was there. Almost forgot my mask though.

tamobhuuta 06-05-2021 05:24 PM

I'm not voting, I know I should but I don't like any of the candidates.

not_so_insig 06-05-2021 05:38 PM

I am a member of a political party so I voted for the party I am a member of.

tamobhuuta 06-05-2021 06:45 PM

Fair enough.

What are you up to?

I'm sort of watching TV, sort of on Facebook.

not_so_insig 06-05-2021 08:20 PM

I am slowly cleaning my flat.

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 11:57 AM


Cacoethes 07-05-2021 12:52 PM

Morning tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 02:22 PM

I'm ok thanks, aiming to have a shower later. How are you?

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 02:45 PM

Apparently GPs can't weigh you, it has to be a nurse. Y'know, because you need specialist training to read scales.

Cacoethes 07-05-2021 03:21 PM

That's good
I'm ok. Bit anxious. Still waiting for this meeting that's supposed to happen

That is very odd

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 03:47 PM

I hope the meeting is helpful.

I've had my shower, go me!

Cacoethes 07-05-2021 03:52 PM

Thank you

Well done!

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 08:14 PM

Did you have the meeting?

Cacoethes 07-05-2021 08:17 PM

Nope. And no one knows anything about it apart from the medication that no one knows the name of
So frustrated

tamobhuuta 07-05-2021 09:09 PM

Eurgh hopefully you will be filled in tomorrow.

not_so_insig 07-05-2021 09:33 PM

I have had an productive day. Washed the bedding and hoovered inside and outside my flat. Sorted out 2 boxes of paperwork and put several postcards in my album, put several postcards and a greetings card in my happy box. Also put several books away either in a box or a bookshelf and put my paint away. One book is still out but it's going to the charity shop next time I go to town.

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 11:44 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 08-05-2021 12:40 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

nonperson 08-05-2021 12:47 PM

Morning all. *waves*

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 01:13 PM

Not bad thanks.
Although slightly annoyed there are no sandwiches today

Np! Not seen you around in a while!

tamobhuuta 08-05-2021 01:19 PM

Hi np, how are you?

Why are there no sandwiches???

nonperson 08-05-2021 01:22 PM

Are they not giving people any lunch today? O.o

Yeah, I've been feeling quiet and disconnected and weird and such... =/

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 01:26 PM

Because it's a weekend.
Usually there are sandwiches on Saturdays but not Sundays. But there are none today.

They have a hot meal for lunch too which most people go for. But a) I do not like eating in front of people and I'm not allowed to eat in my room anymore and b) 2 hot meals a day is way too much

That doesn't sound too comfortable np.
Are you feeling any better now?

nonperson 08-05-2021 01:30 PM

Well maybe try for something tonight instead. Is there nothing at all you can grab quickly and run away with?

It's a new level of apathy that I didn't know I had. Dunno if I am feeling better but I am at least communicating and haven't got work and slept for a million hours last night.

nonperson 08-05-2021 01:30 PM

And the miserable weather is a good excuse to do nothing today.

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 01:43 PM

Nope nothing else.
It's the cutlery I'm not allowed so I'm a bit stuck.

I'm glad you're communicating again.
I've missed you!

Yes definitely a good reason to stay in and do nothing

nonperson 08-05-2021 01:58 PM

Oh that's a bummer... I was going to say I'd probably use my hands or stick my face in but actually I'd probably do the same as you. Hopefully you feel ok to try something later. Food is good, remember.

Aw <3 I missed all you guys too. Was checking in and keeping an eye on everyone though ;-)

Just got to do the dreaded food shop tonight and need to try and get to the garden centre tomorrow for a few bits.

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 02:11 PM

I know.
It's not that I don't want to eat it's just that I can't deal with eating in the small, busy dining room anymore!
I hate people seeing me eat!


Ah that sucks.
Hopefully the weather will be better tomorrow

EDIT: I've just done a co op order for sandwiches and snacks. And of course more diet coke and iced coffee!

tamobhuuta 08-05-2021 03:08 PM

Well done, it's good to have food :) when I was ip last year I always ate in my room.

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 03:14 PM

Thanks :)

Yeah it's tough eating around people

nonperson 08-05-2021 04:56 PM

I was going to suggest ordering snacks and stuff in! Good plan. Will it arrive today?

I don't like eating around people either... =/

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 05:00 PM

Yeah they arrived in about 30 mins
Gotta love deliveroo!

It's just so uncomfortable!

nonperson 08-05-2021 05:10 PM

Ooh nice!

I recently discovered that Just Eat do apparently deliver to me (KFC omg!) but they'd be unlikely to find my house and the thought of someone I don't know turning up at my door freaks me out >.<

Yeah I always get really shaky hands if eating with cutlery in front of other people...

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 05:27 PM

Jealous that you can get KFC!
There is a box where you can write further directions to your house if you need to.
I know that feeling but sometimes the need for takeaway outweighs the freaking out :p

Yeah it's horrible!

nonperson 08-05-2021 05:31 PM

I can but I won't >.< which makes it worse somehow because the problem is me and not that they simply don't deliver =P Sometimes extra instructions don't help either because everything is private roads and no road names and no street lights. I am getting desperate for KFC though...

It's like the fork suddenly weighs a tonne and my mouth has moved location on my face!

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 05:49 PM

Oh that's annoying!
KFC is so good

Haha! I get that

nonperson 08-05-2021 05:52 PM

It is so good. Maybe I'll settle for some KFC flavoured crisps for now.

My shopping list is looking a bit sparse...

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 05:58 PM

What do you have on your list so far?

nonperson 08-05-2021 06:04 PM

All the usual stuff for lunches and cereal bars and biscuits... and rice cakes and cheese. Not a lot of things for dinner. Hm.

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 06:11 PM


nonperson 08-05-2021 06:30 PM

The list is distinctly lacking in fruit and veg!

Cacoethes 08-05-2021 06:40 PM

Well, you already have the important stuff down. Like cheese and rice cakes :p

nonperson 08-05-2021 07:00 PM

For sure they are the important things. And biscuits.

My diet is so bad =/ I've got veg in the freezer though but will pick up some sort of fruit/veg things. Maybe smoothie and some soup.
