Just dropping in with some Northern solidarity! It's still windy here and wreaking havoc. I just had to have a little reassuring pep talk with one of my bins who had fallen over and was feeling very sorry for himself.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 12:53 PM

Awww bless!

not_so_insig 29-01-2022 01:41 PM

It's really windy here. Fortunately apart from a few channels that I dont watch it isn't effecting my dish too badly so I can watch TV. Not that there's anything good on.

Does everyone know that bbc 3 returns as a regular channel on Tuesday instead of being an online only channel?

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 01:49 PM

Yeah I heard about that Dawn.
They had some good stuff on bbc3

not_so_insig 29-01-2022 01:57 PM

Just in case people need to retune their freeview boxes i thought that I would mention it. I didnt know until I woke up and put bbc 1 Wales sd on my freesat box and wondered why I had bbc Scotland. So it's moved to a different channel number which I cant remember atm.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 01:58 PM

My tv has been warning me of the retuning date for ages.
I'll probably have to do it when i get back

tamobhuuta 29-01-2022 02:14 PM

Sorry you've got covid Cacoethes :(

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 02:17 PM

I've needed my powerbank for 2 hours. They haven't done any checks in that time so haven't been able to ask.

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 03:42 PM

You're too cute Jenna! Two of my bins have slightly fallen and are lying on a broken fence bit but they're in a position where nothing is coming out of them so I'm not picking them up until the wind is gone for sure.

The bad weather affects all of my Freeview channels I think, but I have an indoor aerial which probably isn't up to the job. I usually watch things on catch up players anyway.

That's annoying Beckie. You'll need to ask them when they do come how you're supposed to let them know what you need.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 03:47 PM

They said to press the call button but I hate doing that! Because it's so loud and they'll just come running down here thinking something is wrong!
I could call the ward phone. But I don't like to bother them!

Out of how many people?

Out of 82 people and it was joint 13th place so worked out as actually the 6th highest score.

How unlucky that you have covid again!

Wind report for here is breezy but not too bad.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 04:25 PM

That's amazing! Well done!

I know!
I think the test was wrong but not much I can do about it!

nonperson 29-01-2022 04:34 PM

When do you get retested? At least the isolation time has been reduced to 5 days now.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 04:50 PM

I don't know!
Neither do the staff
Yes that's true!

The Internet is being ****.
It keeps interrupting my movies!
Just finished the iron man trilogy, started on batman. But why oh why does amazon only have 2 of the dark knight triology?!

one_step_closer 29-01-2022 05:18 PM

Hospital wifi sucks.

Well done NP!

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 05:24 PM

It does!
It's actually been ok for a while *touch wood*

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 05:24 PM

Spoke too soon *facepalm*

nonperson 29-01-2022 07:34 PM

Maybe a lot of people were all using it at once?

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:04 PM

I asked for film recommendations on my geek group and i got inundated with replies! So I'm going to be busy! One that's come up a few times is supernatural. Which i know isn't a film but still something I've been meaning to watch for a while!
I've just ordered 2 t shirts. One is maslows hierarchy of needs except with wifi at the bottom.
And one says 'i paused my game to be here' which I think I will wear on ward round day XD

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:06 PM

I've never seen Supernatural. It does seem to have a massive following though.

Those tshirts are excellent. =P

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:13 PM

Yes it does!

Haha! The only thing is I accidentally sent them to my friend's address *facepalm*
I sent an email to them straight away so hopefully they can change it. But if not my friend said he'll post them to the ward!

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:20 PM

Ooops o.o

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:24 PM

Sooo irritating!!!
Now I'll have to wait even longer!
But then I guess if I do get discharged on Monday then he can just send them to my home address

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:26 PM

At least you haven't sent it somewhere completely random.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:32 PM

And I know he'll send it straight away!
I'm hoping the company can change it though. Shipping is 3-5 days so they should have time!

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:35 PM

Yup hopefully. But if you do get discharged on Monday it won't arrive before you leave?

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:44 PM

True. I'll just get them to send it to me! If they will. Idk
Tbh it probably won't be Monday
Because if they do decide I can leave and still want me on a CTO then they take FOREVER to do the paperwork. Because consultants are 'busy' and there's a lot of it apparently.

nonperson 29-01-2022 08:52 PM

Might be better not to change it anyway? I dunno. Hard to say!

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 08:57 PM

It is hard to say!
They probably won't change it anyway. It's Sunday tomorrow and I guess they would have started getting it ready by the time they read the email!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:19 PM

Possibly not.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:22 PM

Plus they think I'm manic so there's that XD
Although last year the other ward discharged me when I was planning to go and declare myself queen of Morocco. They even said 'I'd pay to see that!'
So you never know!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:26 PM

That would be quite a spectacle tbh.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:27 PM

It would!
And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for that meddling covid!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:58 PM

Well covid just ruins everything, doesn't it.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 10:07 PM

Totally does!
I'm only on day one of isolation and it's flippin awful!
Isolating at home wasn't so bad because at least I could go to the bathroom without having to wipe everything down with sanitiser wipes and wear a mask! And just generally move about the house! Lol

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 09:37 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-01-2022 11:11 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 11:21 AM

I'm ok thanks!
Apart from being woken up at 6:30 for blood sugars!!!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 30-01-2022 11:35 AM

That's annoying. I used to get peeved being woken up for breakfast (not that I went) Being stuck in one room would drive me mad.

I am ok. I took PRN yesterday. I often forget how much PRN helps when I need it. So feeling pretty calm this morning.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 11:37 AM

Yeah it sucks!

That's good :)

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 03:05 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Did you go back to sleep after your bloods were taken Beckie? It's annoying being woken up when you struggle to sleep. Are you watching anything at the moment.

Are you still doing ok Tamo? What have you been up to?

I got up at 12.25, great start to my getting up at 10.15am. I was up much earlier yesterday so I knew I'd end up getting up late today. I need to sort myself out.

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 03:08 PM

A yellow wind warning starts here again at 3pm and it's right on time. Just a bit of rain so far.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 04:27 PM

I did get back to sleep for a bit lindsay! Even though someone was screaming.
I haven't watched anything today because i had a seizure. So I've been asleep since whenever that was. I did tell staff but they didn't seem to care. Literally came to do my blood pressure (for covid reasons, not related to what i told them about the seizure) and didn't say a word to me. Just talked to each other.

Don't worry about that too much lindsay. You've been doing a lot better with it and there's bound to be days where you don't get up so early.

Oh that doesn't sound good!
I haven't been outside but from the look of the trees I can see there is no wind

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 04:57 PM

I'm sorry you had a seizure and I'm sorry that you were ignored. How are you feeling now?

Thanks for your encouragement.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 05:20 PM

Turns out no one told the nurse in charge that i had a seizure
She asked if i usually had seizures. When i told her i had epilepsy she was really shocked *facepalm*
A+ communication from the mh professionals strikes again!

You can do it!

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 05:27 PM

No one ever seems to have all the important information, just bits. I bet if all your treatment team got together lots would have different information than other people. Having all the facts is beyond people so it seems.

Are you just taking it easy?

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 06:06 PM


Yeah. Just been in bed!
Not that i could go anywhere else anyway...

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 09:36 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 31-01-2022 10:38 AM

Hi, how are you?

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 11:06 AM

I'm ok thanks
Being moved into an en suite room now apparently.
Because of being covid positive. Just had to pack all my stuff.
Which is good because I'm sick of having to put on a mask and wipe everything down with sanitiser wipes when I use the bathroom!

How are you?
