I'm impressed :) I've done work experience and charity work dealing with customers and I couldn't hack it.

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 03:51 PM

Thanks! :)
It's not for everyone!

nonperson 09-01-2022 03:59 PM

I find dealing with the public very tiring! I'm lucky that I'm mostly hidden away from where the public are =P

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 04:04 PM

If we need to get away from the public we hide in the glass wash :p

nonperson 09-01-2022 04:06 PM

I can hear them but not see them a lot of the time though. Sometimes that's worse o.O

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 04:11 PM

I think that would freak me out a bit!

nonperson 09-01-2022 05:00 PM

It's kinda normal really. It's not like they sneak up on anyone, we know where to expect them. Sometimes it's fun to appear out of nowhere though and freak them out =P

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 05:05 PM

Haha! That sounds like something I'd do :p

nonperson 09-01-2022 05:47 PM

I quite enjoy making people jump when I burst through a a certain door. They're all peacefully walking around and then BOOM there I am. They probably shock me as much as I shock them tbh!

Hope your shift is nice and quiet tonight.

Cacoethes 09-01-2022 05:51 PM

Sounds like fun!

Thanks. The car park doesn't seem too bad.
I've still got 10 mins to my shift so just sitting outside

nonperson 09-01-2022 05:57 PM

I don't want to work tomorrow... *whine* =(

one_step_closer 09-01-2022 06:30 PM

I hope your shift goes well Beckie.

Poor you NP, are you working the whole week?

nonperson 09-01-2022 07:21 PM

Yep, back to five days a week. And I think I'm working the weekend too so no easing in gently for me!

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 07:19 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 10:55 AM

Morning :) you're up early. How are you?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 10:58 AM

Yeah. Happens occasionally!

I'm okish.
Don't know when crisis are coming. I called them and they didn't know either :eyeroll:

How are you?

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 11:02 AM

That's frustrating. I hope they come at a convenient time.

I am ok. My godmother is going to call me at about 2pm. I'm relieved I didn't need PRN yesterday, I was worried I was addicted!

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 11:07 AM

They just called!
They wanted to come at the same time as church people. But she's gonna come earlier.

I hope you have a nice chat with your godmother!
That's great! Well done!

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 11:26 AM

Cool. I hope all the people are helpful.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 11:42 AM

Thank you :)
I'm just stressing out because the appointments are so close! Hate it when that happens

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 11:44 AM

I hope it's less stressful than you expect.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 11:47 AM

Thanks :)

Was going to go out today but now can't be bothered lol

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 12:40 PM

Where were you going to go?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 01:20 PM

Just the pharmacy.
But I'll go tomorrow

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 02:00 PM

Fair enough.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 02:22 PM

How's your day going?

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 02:27 PM

Tamobhuuta did you know that Doctors returns next week?

Beckie a new series of 999 what's your emergency starts next Monday. 9 pm channel 4.

I know that both of you like those programmes.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 02:35 PM

Oooh yay!
Thanks Dawn!

How are you?

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 02:55 PM

I am not so good mh wise but I am getting better slowly. Thanks for asking though.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:05 PM

Sorry to hear that
I hope you feel better soon

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 03:07 PM

Thanks Beckie

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 03:20 PM

Thanks insig! Sending hugs.

My day is OK, had the phone call with my godmother which was nice.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:23 PM

That's good tamo :)

I got an email from work HR.
We're all getting a 20 bonus because our pub beat our sales targets :)

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 03:30 PM

Well done :)

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:35 PM

We all work very hard!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 03:50 PM


Hi all

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:53 PM

Hey Hazel

How are you?

one_step_closer 10-01-2022 03:57 PM

I hope the support you're getting today is helpful Beckie. Well done with working hard and getting the bonus!

How are you feeling now Dawn?

I too like 999: What's You're Emergency. There's a new medical one on my 5 but I can't get into it.

I'm glad you enjoyed speaking with your godmother Tamo.

Hi Hazel, how are you?

shadow-light 10-01-2022 03:57 PM

ok I think, had med review with a psychiatrist today and now have to somehow go over there next week for blood tests which not looking forward to. Feeling a bit restless now but unsure what to do :laugh:

How are you?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:01 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

How are you?

That's a pain Hazel!
Do you know what they're for?


shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:11 PM

the blood tests? Ye apparently got to have them before changing to the new meds so they have a "base line" then they will take them now and again to make sure the meds aren't causing issues. WHat these potential issues are I do not know... currently googling :laugh:

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:14 PM

Ah yeah.
Fun times!
I have medication related blood tests quite frequently.
Thanks lithium!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:16 PM

i've not been on any blood test needing meds for AGES so i had almost forgotten it was a thing

zero idea how I am going to get there as no car, no bus route, etc... but will figure that out later

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:21 PM

It's really annoying
But I guess I'm lucky I live a 10 minute walk away from the gp surgery!
If I remember correctly, you are not near anything!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:24 PM

been told I have to go the the CMHT building, and it has to be on a tuesday... said building is like 13 miles away on the other side of town

I'm going to have to get a lift off someone, but everyone I know works so it's going to be a whole thing... hopefully it only needs to be taken there for the first one, we'll see

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:27 PM

What a pain
Do they offer any kind of transport service?
Or have a budget for taxis?
When I've been in a&e until like 4am the mh team have paid for a taxi home
Don't know if a cmht would do that

shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:37 PM

not sure... not even sure how you go about getting a taxi in general

it's the only on a tuesday bit that's annoying, the partner finishes work early on a friday so a friday afternoon would have been perfect, but noooo they only do tuesdays :wow:

regardless though at least the psych listened and didn't accuse me of faking or any of the other stuff my brain thought would happen

He's also going to look into getting me some meds for my ADHD :hehe: I've been diagnosed ages but never been offered meds before

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:50 PM

That is annoying!
Cmhts are so inconvenient

I'm glad he listened!
It's always a bit of a lottery with mh people

That's good!

one_step_closer 10-01-2022 05:30 PM

That sounds annoying with having trouble finding transport Hazel. I hope you can figure something out. I'm glad the psych listened and you might be getting things sorted.

I wish you felt better Beckie, please take care of yourself and use the support that you have even if you feel it's not needed. At least people are looking out for you.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:44 PM

Thank you lindsay
It's not that I'm not grateful for the support, I just think their time would be better spent with actually ill people
