Fun times.
Do you find time goes quicker if you're busy?
I always did when i was at work.

Yeah Probably. Next fresh air break is 1:30

nonperson 18-04-2021 11:41 AM

Oh yes, time definitely goes quicker when I'm busy, but then there's never enough time to get it all done. =P

Sometimes it helps to feel the warm sun on your face.

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 11:48 AM


Yes it does
I didn't go out at all yesterday. Spent most of the day laying in bed staring at the wall. Because that's really helpful :eyeroll:

nonperson 18-04-2021 01:05 PM

No, not helpful but sometimes feels like the only thing to do.

It does sound cliche but the fresh air does help. I know if I've cooped myself up in the house for a few days it does help just to sit on the doorstep for a bit.

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 01:12 PM

That is true.
I'm quite looking forward to standing outside for a bit.

nonperson 18-04-2021 01:19 PM

That's good. Not long to go =)

I'm sitting on the doorstep now actually, even though I'll be outside later. Sitting in front of the TV is not helpful today.

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 01:57 PM

Been out. It is nice weather but there isn't much to do outside. It's just a car park.

That's good np

not_so_insig 18-04-2021 02:10 PM

I have washed my hair!

nonperson 18-04-2021 02:28 PM

Good stuff, Dawn.

Car parks aren't nice =/

Cacoethes 18-04-2021 02:57 PM

No they are not!

not_so_insig 18-04-2021 08:05 PM

Quiet again! My phone keeps on suggesting Welsh words how did it know I was Welsh?

nonperson 18-04-2021 08:24 PM

Woo, shift ended early tonight! No more evening shifts! *dances* =D

tamobhuuta 18-04-2021 08:39 PM


nonperson 18-04-2021 08:49 PM

Things can now return to normal. =)

not_so_insig 18-04-2021 10:06 PM

You can relax now nonperson.

tamobhuuta 19-04-2021 09:37 AM

Morning. I only slept 11 hours last night! But now I'm getting dozens. Anyone else up yet?

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 09:47 AM

I don't know how many hours i slept. Probably about 11

nonperson 19-04-2021 09:55 AM

Only 11 hours o.O

I'm up. =/

tamobhuuta 19-04-2021 10:08 AM

Hi Cacoethes and np. Any plans for today?

nonperson 19-04-2021 10:18 AM

Hey. Not really, just have to go for my annual work health check soon... =/

You up to much?

tamobhuuta 19-04-2021 10:23 AM

Not really. I may have a phone call with a friend but probably not.

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 10:42 AM

Fun times np!

I can't get dressed because they are having a meeting in that room again. Gah!

shadow-light 19-04-2021 10:45 AM

they do seem to enjoy taking your clothing hostage with their meetings :P

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 10:57 AM

They do! And their meetings go on for HOURS!

How are you Hazel?

shadow-light 19-04-2021 11:03 AM

I guess your only other opion is to get dressed before the meetings start :P

I'm ok, mainly bored... having one of thse oddd days where I am really really bored but have zero motivation to actually do anything

how's you?

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 12:06 PM

That would require waking up earlier :p
I am now showered and dressed

I know the feeling!

I'm ok. Apart from the staff not knowing that the doctor said i need to go to a&e and apparently being unwilling to ask.

shadow-light 19-04-2021 12:58 PM

that doesnot sound good... I am really starting to think the staff there have a communication problem

i've decided i hate weekdays... weekends are ok as i'm not on my own but weekdays I am on my own for 9 hours and as i cant seem to leave the house alone i'm starting to feel very trapped, and the job centre is just stressing me out which isn't helping

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 01:13 PM

They really do

That really sucks.
I think the job centre's main purpose is to stress people out.
Can you sit out in the garden for a bit?

shadow-light 19-04-2021 01:21 PM

i just don't know how they expect me to get a job when I can't leave the house or concentrate on anything for longer than 5 mins :laugh: but whatever

GP is phoning on friday for our monthly check, so in my mind i only need to last till then. THen i'll find a new target point

might go walk some garden laps, there's literally a path in the grass now from my garden lapping...

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 01:59 PM

Yeah that's not right
If only they could experience what it's like for even a day.

It's good to have target points.

Does it help?

shadow-light 19-04-2021 02:10 PM

Ish... think sometimes it just helps to have something to focus on timeframe wise

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 02:21 PM

Yeah i get that

nonperson 19-04-2021 02:50 PM

Afternoon all. I've been pottering in the garden.

Cacoethes 19-04-2021 08:18 PM

It's nice weather for pottering!

We have a new patient in. She will not.stop.screaming.

nonperson 19-04-2021 09:36 PM

Ugh, has she stopped yet? =/

I'm watching Alien so might be screaming soon too.

[Luna] 20-04-2021 07:51 AM

Good morning guys

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 08:50 AM

She stopped eventually!
But she's back at it this morning!

Morning Luna
How are you?

[Luna] 20-04-2021 09:13 AM

Hey Beckie, I’m not brilliant.
How are you? Xx

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 09:23 AM

Sorry to hear that Luna *sends love*

I'm ok.
Got ward round today

[Luna] 20-04-2021 09:52 AM

Eeek. How you feeling about it?
Got much to distract you while you wait?

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 10:16 AM

Meh. Not much going on really.
I'll probably have to restart clozapine at the start dose again which is fun. Though he's been desperate to kick me out for a week now so who knows!

tamobhuuta 20-04-2021 11:19 AM

Hi everyone! I did the dishwasher.

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 11:20 AM

Hi tamo!
Well done!

[Luna] 20-04-2021 11:48 AM

Well done Tamo!

I'm trying to work through a list of jobs and also starting an exercise class this afternoon but finding it very hard to focus on anything for very long.

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 11:52 AM

Good luck with everything Luna <3

[Luna] 20-04-2021 11:56 AM

Thank you love.

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 12:34 PM


Had ward round.
Starting clozapine again today at the start dose again. Fun times

[Luna] 20-04-2021 12:52 PM

Thats good about the Clozapine but such a pain to keep stop/starting.

Cacoethes 20-04-2021 12:53 PM

I know.
I don't know why my body is suddenly rebelling! I've never had an issue before!

tamobhuuta 20-04-2021 01:20 PM

Bodies are frustrating.
