Could you still go? You're informal after all.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 05:25 PM

It's too far really. Would have to get 2 trains and then a bus.
And travel is expensive

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 05:25 PM


Cacoethes 18-04-2019 05:34 PM

They said to call back when I'm out

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 05:37 PM

Has anyone said about how long your stay might be?

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 05:41 PM

They said a couple of weeks but they said that last time and I was in for 2 months :/

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 05:43 PM

Ah ok. Are they looking after you?

chinahorse 18-04-2019 05:49 PM

That sucks beckie. Motivation to work with them to get out though?

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 05:49 PM

Yeah they're not bad
Don't think I'll be seeing the doctor today though

Yes I suppose so Lillie!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 06:45 PM

That's annoying, hopefully you'll see them tomorrow.

Buttons. 18-04-2019 06:57 PM

Evening all :)

zombiehunter 18-04-2019 06:58 PM

*presses buttons*

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 07:10 PM

Hey buttons!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 07:14 PM

Hi Buttons

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 07:30 PM

Had ward round.
I've just been sectioned.
Even though I've said I don't mind staying and being informal
I am very very pissed off!!
Absolute bullshit.

zombiehunter 18-04-2019 07:36 PM

hi coco and tambourine

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 07:38 PM

Totally get the pissedness but it's probably for the best.

Hi zombie

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 07:43 PM

But I've said I'll stay informally anyway!!!

Hey zombie!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 07:47 PM

Maybe it's a just in case thing. Also not to scare you but if you're on section 3 they can make you have treatments.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 07:52 PM

I was agreeing to treatment anyway
It was literally just because I said I was worried about being sectioned and that's why I came in informally.
She said that because of that it cannot be valid consent!!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 07:57 PM

I think she's right, sorry.

one_step_closer 18-04-2019 07:59 PM

I think most people agree to informal admission only because they are threatened with detention. I know I have. There's some articles about whether informal admission really is voluntary, since most people are first threatened with detention. I'm not sure of the sense but if you were going to stay informally anyway then you were still going to be in hospital so not an entire change. I hope things work out for you Beckie.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 08:04 PM

I just really don't understand!!
Thanks lindsay

Anyway. I shall stop derailing the thread with my nonsense!
How is everyone?

one_step_closer 18-04-2019 08:06 PM

*hugs and support*

I'm mega emotionally and physically drained but don't have anything big to do for a few days now anyway. Going to get myself a proper big expensive Easter egg tomorrow I think!

How are you occupying yourself Beckie?

Stellata 18-04-2019 08:07 PM

Sorry things turned out that way, Beckie, but I hope it helps.

Hi everyone.
Group was good, wrote a good poem if I say so myself!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 08:09 PM

I used to go to a writing group but I was rubbish.

Stellata 18-04-2019 08:10 PM

I'm sure you weren't rubbish, tamo.

one_step_closer 18-04-2019 08:12 PM

Brilliant Katie!

I've felt like that too in some writing groups, Tamo. I think the important thing is really just getting things down on paper.

Stellata 18-04-2019 08:15 PM

Thanks Lindsay.

Agreed, it's how it helps you that's the most important thing.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 08:16 PM

Easter egg sounds awesome Lindsay!!
Its good to treat yourself

I'm just watching tv or things on my phone generally!

Sounds great Katie!

Im sure you weren't rubbish tamo
We are our own harshest critics!

tamobhuuta 18-04-2019 08:17 PM

Thanks guys.

Just watching Friends.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 08:19 PM

Good choice!

Stellata 18-04-2019 08:21 PM

Thanks Beckie.

It's the next episode of that dinner series for me again tonight.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 09:02 PM


I don't know what I'll watch tonight
Phone battery is getting pretty low again

LittleBird84 18-04-2019 10:02 PM

Anyone any good series to watch on Netflix? I just finished Santa Clarita Diet

not_so_insig 18-04-2019 10:33 PM

Sorry to hear that you have been sectioned Beckie.

I don't have Netflix so I cant recommend anything.

Cacoethes 18-04-2019 11:06 PM

Thanks Dawn

chinahorse 19-04-2019 08:42 AM

Morning guys :)

Stellata 19-04-2019 10:21 AM

Morning Lillie and everyone.

Eska 19-04-2019 10:23 AM

Morning Lillie and Katie, how are you both?

Cacoethes 19-04-2019 10:23 AM

Morning guys!

chinahorse 19-04-2019 10:26 AM

Hey everyone.

I'm tired and want coco pops. But I have cleaned up the front room and washed up. And even made my bed-shock!!

What's everyone up to today?

Stellata 19-04-2019 10:27 AM

I'm not very awake and with it yet!
But I'm off down to my parents later.

Eska 19-04-2019 10:28 AM

I need to put washing on. Not a clue what else I'm going to do with myself.

That's all very productive Lillie! I'm still sitting on my bed trying to will myself to move!

chinahorse 19-04-2019 10:32 AM

That sounds nice Katie :)

I'm sat on the sofa willing myself to get dressed eska. I have a furry alarm clock who won't let me miss his breakfast time.

Stellata 19-04-2019 10:41 AM

Yes, I hope so, thanks Lillie.

I remember mornings when I had a cat!

Eska 19-04-2019 11:08 AM

Washing is on and I'm also sat on the sofa! Getting dressed sounds a bit ambitious for me though :P

chinahorse 19-04-2019 11:15 AM

Well done eska!

I'm only dressed cos htt are coming. Really wanna gp back to bed though.

Eska 19-04-2019 11:22 AM

Maybe you can have a nap after they've been? Do you know what time they'll be with you?

chinahorse 19-04-2019 11:26 AM

Think they are coming jn the afternoon.

I've put a maxi dress on and I'm cold.
