I've just filled out the PIP form I got in the post yesterday.
I'm so anxious about sending it in.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 12:53 PM

I hope you get the financial support you need. It makes me nervous too, I got my parents to help me because they notice things I think are normal!

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 12:56 PM

Thank you. If I don't get it I won't be able to pay my rent so a lot is riding on this application!
I'll run it by my cpn to make sure I haven't missed anything out.
Did you send evidence with your application?

one_step_closer 12-11-2020 01:05 PM

Fingers crossed Beckie. Showing it to your CPN in a very good idea.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 01:14 PM

Thanks lindsay!

How are you today?

one_step_closer 12-11-2020 02:11 PM

Stressed because I have to make two phone calls to change vets. I've done the easy one. Can't phone the next one till a bit after 3pm because they only open 3-4pm I think. Then they might offer me an appointment today and that's too much away from my plans for today and I can't do things out of the blue.

My support worker is also pushing me to go to the gym again.

not_so_insig 12-11-2020 02:13 PM

Hello all. After over a year of the next doors flat being empty some people are moving in. Not sure if it's an youngster or elderly. They had the cheek to sit on my bench.

I can't remember but I probably referred them to my CPN. Don't quote me!

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 03:13 PM

That does sound stressful lindsay.
I hope the phone call goes ok
That's not very good of your support worker. Haven't you already said you're not ready for the gym?

Do they know it's your bench dawn?

Thanks tamo

not_so_insig 12-11-2020 03:39 PM

Well it has my number on and it's quite obvious it's my bench Beckie.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 03:47 PM

Fair enough!

one_step_closer 12-11-2020 04:36 PM

Yeah I told her I'm not ready for the gym before, she thinks it's the next step I have to take. So I just agreed.

The vet has changed their consultation times and is closed today.

I don't know if I'd know that a bench belonged to someone because it had a number on it. I've never come across that. Do other neighbours have benches too?

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 04:40 PM

That's annoying lindsay. Will you have to call again tomorrow?

yoyogirl 12-11-2020 04:43 PM

I think i got this annoying zoom fatigue again, videos are so tiring.
journals, academic sources, textbooks i don't mind, walking for miles on end is piece of p but zoom fatigue is real, so hard to catch up with everythning

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 05:17 PM

I've been so bored today

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 05:23 PM

I just spasmed so bad that I fell down.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 05:26 PM

Oh no tamo!
You need to tell your doctor about it so they can try and get it under control

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 05:37 PM

I know, luckily i have a gp phone call tomorrow.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 05:45 PM

Oh that's good
Hopefully there's something they can do

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 06:24 PM

How has your day been?

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 06:27 PM

Boring and filled with anxiety about tomorrow's psych appointment!
Not a good combination!

How about you, besides the fall?

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 06:37 PM

It was nice, just a normal day but I'm starting to feel anxious.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 06:54 PM

Glad you've had a nice day.
Anxiety sucks.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 07:03 PM

Any plans for this evening? I expect I'll be watching a vet programme with my mum and sister.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 07:39 PM

I'm watching Big bang theory at the moment.
Vet programme sounds good

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 07:42 PM

I liked the earlier series.

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 07:54 PM

Me too

Ugh I'm so anxious! I don't know what to do with myself!

nonperson 12-11-2020 08:03 PM

Just been watching Big Bang Theory here too. Star Trek time now. =)

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 08:05 PM

Hi np!
I still need to watch star trek!

nonperson 12-11-2020 08:19 PM

I hear it's good at relieving anxiety. ;-)

Didn't see your message before, my post took forever to send for some reason. Have you got anything you can keep busy with tonight to keep your mind distracted?

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 08:23 PM

I may have to try it!

Not really. I'm just playing games on my phone/random internetting which does help to an extent.

How are you anyway?

not_so_insig 12-11-2020 08:37 PM

I seem to be in a clumsy mood today as I knocked several things over. I managed to break my Pyrex jug.

tamobhuuta 12-11-2020 08:46 PM

That's not good insig!

Sorry you're feeling anxious Cacoethes, can you take PRN?

nonperson 12-11-2020 08:50 PM

Got any new games to try, Beckie? They might hold your attention more than ones you play all the time.

I'm alright. Tired, as usual. And quite annoyed that Amazon Music deleted nearly all my downloaded songs from my phone last night so I have no playlists and just a handful of random songs that it decided could stay. Haven't got the energy to fix it. =/

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 08:56 PM

That's a good idea.
I'll have a look on the app store

Oh that's so frustrating!
Hopefully it's something easily fixable

nonperson 12-11-2020 09:01 PM

I'd offer recommendations but don't play any games! Kinda got bored of the Pokemon and Harry Potter ones. =/

I just have to manually download the songs all again and recreate all my empty playlists. I have music on so often that it really is frustrating me not being able to listen to what I want to. >.<

Cacoethes 12-11-2020 09:18 PM

Yeah I got bored of those too

That's so awful
I don't know what I'd do if my ipod did that because like you I'd have to download it all again!

yoyogirl 12-11-2020 09:46 PM

I’m recording for voice finals on Saturday I’m in the audience in a green top with a dog on it.

Cacoethes 13-11-2020 10:38 AM

Morning guys
I'm so groggy this morning!

tamobhuuta 13-11-2020 10:51 AM

I slept so badly so I took a zopiclone to knock me out all morning but it hasn't worked.

I heard my phone go off and thought it was a friend so ignored it. Turns out it was my GP. But he said he would call back.

Cacoethes 13-11-2020 10:52 AM

Sorry to hear that tamo :(

tamobhuuta 13-11-2020 10:53 AM

Would a coffee help with the grogginess?

Cacoethes 13-11-2020 11:06 AM

Coffee is helping!
Now I have a day filled with anxiety until my psych appointment! Fun times

tamobhuuta 13-11-2020 11:07 AM

One time my CPN told me off for drinking coffee to keep myself awake/wake up. I would use a swearword but i am trying not to swear.

Cacoethes 13-11-2020 11:12 AM

But that's what coffee is for!!

tamobhuuta 13-11-2020 11:16 AM


Cacoethes 13-11-2020 11:22 AM


Are you up to much today tamo?

one_step_closer 13-11-2020 11:38 AM

Morning peoples. I can't contribute to the coffee discussion because I've never tried it.

When is your appointment Beckie?

Cacoethes 13-11-2020 11:42 AM

Morning lindsay
How are you?

It's at 2pm

one_step_closer 13-11-2020 11:53 AM

I hate afternoon appointments, so much time to wait. Do you have to go somewhere to see your psych or is it a phone call or what?

I'm not good. There's no way to get (emotional) pain relief.
