Satsumas are always good. I was addicted to them when I was pregnant. I'd get through 2 or 3 packs a day! Them and olives.

Ha ha so did I pretty much every time :P

Be grateful you were addicted to satsumas my mum said when she was pregnant with my she used to eat entire jars of Branston Pickle :crazy:

Voldemort 02-12-2016 06:17 PM

Ew. I've never tried branston pickle though so I may be missing out.

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 06:20 PM

Branston pickle is nice but I wouldn't eat an entire jar of it!!

I used to ears jars after jars of olives. And drink the brine. When I was in hospital I had like 3 nurses all buying me olives every time they were on shift. I had olive dealers!!

I also enjoyed cocktail sausages dipped in sherbert.

Voldemort 02-12-2016 06:27 PM

Pregnancy cravings are so odd!

Buttons. 02-12-2016 06:27 PM

Dipped in sherbert?

And I thought my mother was weird! (Also she only liked the jar fulls when I was inconveniencing her in her stomach, now she has a normal amount on sandwhiches :P)

Voldemort 02-12-2016 06:27 PM

Maybe I should try branston pickle. Hmm.

Buttons. 02-12-2016 06:29 PM

I didn't like it but it seems to be popular with weirdos and/or aardvarks so I'd advise giving it a try :P

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 06:31 PM

Yes,dipped in sherbert!
Pregnancy cravings can be very odd!
I had bad morning sickness and all I could eat for the first 12 weeks was wotsits and marmite sandwiches.

You should definitely try it amy!

I've heard from a lot of mum's that their kids HATE all the food that they were craving while pregnant with them. It's weird!

Buttons. 02-12-2016 06:35 PM

^ Or the root of the phrase 'if it's not one thing it's your mother ;p*

Voldemort 02-12-2016 06:36 PM

I'll probably crave cheese if I ever get pregnant.

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 06:39 PM

Haha! Yes Katy! :P

It's possible! I always hated rhubarb until I got pregnant and now I like it!
And cheese is awesome. I crave cheese on a regular basis!

Join the club!

not_so_insig 02-12-2016 06:49 PM

Cheese is awesome! I had cheese as a desert on Monday.

Buttons. 02-12-2016 06:52 PM

^ That would be my ideal dessert. What kind of cheese?

Voldemort 02-12-2016 07:01 PM

Ewww. Cheese is only good on pizza.

Buttons. 02-12-2016 07:04 PM

^ You know how we were friends? No longer :P

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 07:04 PM

Have you ever tried grilled halloumi cheese amy? It's awesome!

Voldemort 02-12-2016 07:06 PM

Owh. :( I've never tried halloumi cheese, no. I like cheese icing on carrot cake though.

Buttons. 02-12-2016 07:10 PM

Halloumi is epic. Try it or get out :P

Buttons. 02-12-2016 07:11 PM

*totally not threatening and breaking friends with people who don't like cheese*

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 07:19 PM

I love carrot cake!

Cheese lovers unite!!

Imagine a forum just for that :-p

Voldemort 02-12-2016 07:22 PM

Fine. Fine! *Flounces out of thread*

Buttons. 02-12-2016 07:29 PM

*stalks in an invisibility cloak*

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 07:32 PM

Come back amy we love you even if you don't like cheese!!!!

Voldemort 02-12-2016 07:40 PM

As if I could stay away. ;)

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:01 PM

Haha!! We are just too awesome! :p

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:02 PM


Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:10 PM


I'm sleepy. Might take my meds in a bit

not_so_insig 02-12-2016 08:12 PM

I had cheddar, Stilton and brie Katy. All for a bargain 2.99!

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:16 PM

Not a bad plan, Beckie. Can I ask you something? How long did the clozaril tKe to kick in for you?

Dawn, ewww!

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:19 PM

I'm not a huge fan of mouldy cheese. Any other cheese I love though!

I can't really remember amy. Probably 2-3 months? It had to get to a therapeutic level in my blood first.

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:28 PM

Gutted. I've been on it three and a half weeks now and nada. He's just upped it by 25mg. Idk. I'm so tired. I don't even think I'm psychotic so god only knows if it will work.

Sorry. Back to distraction talk.

not_so_insig 02-12-2016 08:34 PM

My mum said that I have done a good job of my tree before. I should take pictures.

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:39 PM

Do! Post them in the Christmas picture thread.

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:41 PM

I didn't think it would work tbh. But it has!
You'll need to be on it a bit longer and at a bit of a higher dose though probably. And smoking reduces the effectiveness of clozapine.

I'd love to see a pic of your tree dawn!

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:46 PM

Great. They're not going to let me out of here any time soon then I guess.

not_so_insig 02-12-2016 08:47 PM

I shall post a picture of my tree tomorrow.

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:50 PM

Good stuff, Dawn. Btw I really like the name Dawn.

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:51 PM

It all depends on how your respond to it so it may not be months! It's different for everyone.

Dawn is a lovely name!
Looking forward to seeing your tree!

not_so_insig 02-12-2016 08:51 PM

Thanks Amy and Beckie.

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 08:57 PM


I've taken my meds so I'll probably be out within the hour!

Sketchy 02-12-2016 08:58 PM

Evening all. I look forward to seeing your tree too.

Voldemort 02-12-2016 08:59 PM

Night Beckie!

Hey Lorraine, how are you?

Sketchy 02-12-2016 09:03 PM

Good night Beckie.

Hi Amy. I'm plodding along. How are you? How are you too Dawn?

Cacoethes 02-12-2016 09:20 PM

Good night guys

I'd love to see your tree too (that sounds wrong :P)! Also smoking has literally about 20 minutes ago just stopped me taking a psych bed in my local trust as it now has a no smoking policy including grounds, won't allow electric cigarettes because of chargers and won't even let you off site to have a cig for at least 48 hours after admission -_-

not_so_insig 03-12-2016 01:02 AM

My tree picture is now up!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:21 AM

Will look now :)

Voldemort 03-12-2016 08:49 AM

That sucks Katy. Could you really not go without smoking?
