Cacoethes 28-09-2022 09:51 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 11:36 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 11:46 AM

Still feeling ill.
It's not covid though. I tested twice, just to be sure!
Think I'm just run down. Or a seasonal thing like a cold.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 12:06 PM

I'm ok. I've got my dad, godmother and L visiting me so I will be busy.
I hope you feel better soon x

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 12:11 PM

You're so lucky to have so many visits!
When I'm in hospital, no one visits because it's too far away.
I hope you have a nice visit!

Thank you x

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 01:03 PM

I'm very lucky :)

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 01:06 PM

I'm glad you have lots of visits. I think it really helps :)

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 01:11 PM

It reminds me I've got a real life to go back to and people who love me.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 01:12 PM

It's definitely always good to be reminded of that
Hospital sometimes feels very isolating.
I usually end up referring to the outside world as 'real life'

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 02:01 PM

Are you up to anything this afternoon?

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 03:08 PM

Not really.
Just been to asda. Bumped into my neighbour both on the way there and on the way back! (She has arthritis so walks very slowly)
I have an amazon delivery coming too. Finally i will have my coffee!
Oh and also my 4th covid jab. The seasonal booster. Might pop into work after that seeing as it's next door!

How about you? Do they do groups in your hospital?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 04:40 PM

The only activity is colouring. I'm going to watch doctors.

one_step_closer 28-09-2022 05:36 PM

Hi everyone. I hope you're all looking after yourselves.

Would you be allowed the jab if you're not feeling well, Beckie?

It's annoying when hospital doesn't have things on to keep you occupied. I hope you enjoy(ed) your visit and watching Doctors, Tamo.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 06:21 PM

I'm not a fan of colouring really

Hey lindsay

I did tell them i wasn't feeling too great but i said I'd tested negative for covid twice so they said it's ok.
Popped into work afterwards for a coffee as it's just next door. Had a nice chat with some colleagues. I actually can't wait to go back on Monday!

How are you doing lindsay?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 07:05 PM

I enjoyed doctors :) and had a good visit with L. Now I'm filling time until my tablet's charged and I can go to bed.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 07:09 PM

That's good :)

I have plant based spaghetti bolognase for dinner!

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 08:11 PM

Ooo tastey!

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 10:10 PM

It was very nice! I think i preferred it to a meat spaghetti bolognase!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 11:34 AM

Good morning. Am I first here?

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 12:57 PM

Oh I was sure i posted here this morning!
Clearly not!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 12:58 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 01:00 PM

I'm ok thanks.


tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 01:03 PM

I'm ok. Just had a visit from my mum and sister which was good. Now I'm going to make my bed and tidy up the cubby hole with my clothes in. What are you up to?

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 01:23 PM

That's nice

I'm catching up with rings of power and doing some washing.
Been to the pharmacy and they won't have my meds until tomorrow. Which is fine really. I don't run out until Saturday. But I'm away from tomorrow afternoon-sunday

one_step_closer 29-09-2022 03:29 PM

Hey you two. How are your days going?

I'm glad you had a nice visit, Tamo. Visits are good and it sounds like you have a really supportive family.

Will you be able to get your meds in the morning, Beckie? You can't be going without.

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 03:32 PM

Hey lindsay.
I'm ok. Cpn coming at 3 so just waiting for that. And taekwando later.

Yeah they said to come in at about 11am tomorrow. Getting the 4:20pm train so I'll have loads of time.
I was going to leave in the morning but jasmine is now coming too, so she'll be coming here after school.

How are you?

one_step_closer 29-09-2022 03:44 PM

I hope it goes well with your CPN and you enjoy taekwando and everything works out with your meds. Are you going on a short trip?

I'm sort of ok. Got the branches that I took off the bush before cut and put into the garden bin now that it has been emptied so I'm glad that's done.

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 03:58 PM

Thank you
Cpn has just called and rearranged to tomorrow. Apparently my body has decided this is a good reason to cry. I don't know why, it's literally just 23 hours later.
I think i just can't cope with change right now. Unusual for me.
I'm going to my nanny's. Just tomorrow until Sunday. Back at work on Monday.

Well done!

one_step_closer 29-09-2022 05:33 PM

It's ok to cry, I would cry about that too. I hope you can get back to your usual self.

Are you looking forward to going to your nanny's? How are you feeling about going back to work?

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 05:35 PM

I hope you have a nice time with your nanny :)

I'm listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

one_step_closer 29-09-2022 05:38 PM

I got a free Audible trial and listened to some of the Harry Potter books but discovered I really don't like listening to books I prefer to read them. Do you enjoy them?

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 05:41 PM

Thanks lindsay
It's not something i would usually be upset about but meh

I am looking forward to going to my nanny's. I haven't seen her in ages

I want to go back to work. 3 weeks off is far too long!

Thanks tamo!
Hope you're enjoying GoF!

one_step_closer 29-09-2022 05:50 PM

You've been struggling with different things for a while, hopefully you can get on top of them and feel better. Will you tell your CPN?

Enjoy your visit to your Nanny and then being back at work. Does it feel like you've been off for ages or has it passed quickly?

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 06:01 PM

I'm not hopeful. Things have sucked for too long for no reason.
But yes i will tell her.

It feels like I've been off forever!
I don't like not having things to do and not seeing people.
Not sure how i used to stay in the house watching tv for days on end! I guess i was used to it.

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 08:05 PM

I find audiobooks are a good way to past the time without the effort of reading.

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 08:10 PM

I wouldn't be able to concentrate on one i don't think!
I can never focus on one thing for long enough. Have to be doing multiple things!
Apart from physical things like taekwando. Can focus on those!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 08:45 PM

I found that when the nurse persuaded me to play table tennis I could focus on it quite well for a little while.

Cacoethes 29-09-2022 08:58 PM

Definitely easier to focus on physical things. Must be just different parts of the brain working

not_so_insig 29-09-2022 09:00 PM

Hello all. I have been in the sea today.

tamobhuuta 30-09-2022 10:22 AM

How was that insig?

And good morning all :)

Cacoethes 30-09-2022 10:24 AM


tamobhuuta 30-09-2022 10:48 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-09-2022 11:11 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Thinking of becoming a doctor and leaving the country
Most countries will only give you a visa if you have a desirable skill. And i don't think bartender counts.

How are you?

Zurg 30-09-2022 11:12 AM

Hi Beckie and Tamo. Hope you're both okay.

Is anyone doing anything exciting today?? I personally feel like this day would be a perfect day to initiate hibernation :D

tamobhuuta 30-09-2022 11:22 AM

Good luck with that Cacoethes!

Hibernation sounds good Zurg.

Either my mum or dad is visiting this morning.

Cacoethes 30-09-2022 11:38 AM

Hey zurg!
Feel like i haven't seen you in a while

It is definitely cold enough for hibernation

I'm going to Norwich with Jasmine. We're both going to stay with my nanny for the weekend.

Thanks tamo

Hope you have a good visit

tamobhuuta 30-09-2022 01:58 PM

My dad visited, it was nice, he was feeling poorly yesterday but better today.

I hope you have a good time with your nanny and Jasmine.

I'm feeling a bit sad because I'm going to miss my prayer group on Sunday.

one_step_closer 30-09-2022 02:07 PM

Is no one else getting torrential rain and high winds? It's wild here and I have an appointment with my psychiatrist soon. I'm going to get soaked if it doesn't calm down.

What country would you live in if you had the chance, Beckie? I hope you enjoy seeing your Nanny.

Zurg, where have you been hiding? I think you must have already started hibernation. How are you doing?

I'm glad you had a nice visit with your Dad, Tamo. That's a shame you'll be missing your prayer group. Does the ward have any groups like that or a minister? I know it wouldn't be the same with strangers though.

tamobhuuta 30-09-2022 02:21 PM

Thing is, it's not just a prayer group, it's part of my identity as a daughter of Carmel.

Cacoethes 30-09-2022 02:22 PM

That's good tamo

No rain here. Little windy but nothing out of the ordinary
Good luck for your appointment

I think either the Netherlands or new Zealand.

It always sucks missing things due to hospital.
But it will still be there when you get back.
Missing a few groups won't change your identity
