I asked for film recommendations on my geek group and i got inundated with replies! So I'm going to be busy! One that's come up a few times is supernatural. Which i know isn't a film but still something I've been meaning to watch for a while!
I've just ordered 2 t shirts. One is maslows hierarchy of needs except with wifi at the bottom.
And one says 'i paused my game to be here' which I think I will wear on ward round day XD

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:06 PM

I've never seen Supernatural. It does seem to have a massive following though.

Those tshirts are excellent. =P

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:13 PM

Yes it does!

Haha! The only thing is I accidentally sent them to my friend's address *facepalm*
I sent an email to them straight away so hopefully they can change it. But if not my friend said he'll post them to the ward!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:20 PM

Ooops o.o

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:24 PM

Sooo irritating!!!
Now I'll have to wait even longer!
But then I guess if I do get discharged on Monday then he can just send them to my home address

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:26 PM

At least you haven't sent it somewhere completely random.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:32 PM

And I know he'll send it straight away!
I'm hoping the company can change it though. Shipping is 3-5 days so they should have time!

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:35 PM

Yup hopefully. But if you do get discharged on Monday it won't arrive before you leave?

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:44 PM

True. I'll just get them to send it to me! If they will. Idk
Tbh it probably won't be Monday
Because if they do decide I can leave and still want me on a CTO then they take FOREVER to do the paperwork. Because consultants are 'busy' and there's a lot of it apparently.

nonperson 29-01-2022 09:52 PM

Might be better not to change it anyway? I dunno. Hard to say!

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 09:57 PM

It is hard to say!
They probably won't change it anyway. It's Sunday tomorrow and I guess they would have started getting it ready by the time they read the email!

nonperson 29-01-2022 10:19 PM

Possibly not.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 10:22 PM

Plus they think I'm manic so there's that XD
Although last year the other ward discharged me when I was planning to go and declare myself queen of Morocco. They even said 'I'd pay to see that!'
So you never know!

nonperson 29-01-2022 10:26 PM

That would be quite a spectacle tbh.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 10:27 PM

It would!
And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for that meddling covid!

nonperson 29-01-2022 10:58 PM

Well covid just ruins everything, doesn't it.

Cacoethes 29-01-2022 11:07 PM

Totally does!
I'm only on day one of isolation and it's flippin awful!
Isolating at home wasn't so bad because at least I could go to the bathroom without having to wipe everything down with sanitiser wipes and wear a mask! And just generally move about the house! Lol

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 10:37 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-01-2022 12:11 PM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 12:21 PM

I'm ok thanks!
Apart from being woken up at 6:30 for blood sugars!!!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 30-01-2022 12:35 PM

That's annoying. I used to get peeved being woken up for breakfast (not that I went) Being stuck in one room would drive me mad.

I am ok. I took PRN yesterday. I often forget how much PRN helps when I need it. So feeling pretty calm this morning.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 12:37 PM

Yeah it sucks!

That's good :)

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 04:05 PM

Afternoon everyone.

Did you go back to sleep after your bloods were taken Beckie? It's annoying being woken up when you struggle to sleep. Are you watching anything at the moment.

Are you still doing ok Tamo? What have you been up to?

I got up at 12.25, great start to my getting up at 10.15am. I was up much earlier yesterday so I knew I'd end up getting up late today. I need to sort myself out.

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 04:08 PM

A yellow wind warning starts here again at 3pm and it's right on time. Just a bit of rain so far.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 05:27 PM

I did get back to sleep for a bit lindsay! Even though someone was screaming.
I haven't watched anything today because i had a seizure. So I've been asleep since whenever that was. I did tell staff but they didn't seem to care. Literally came to do my blood pressure (for covid reasons, not related to what i told them about the seizure) and didn't say a word to me. Just talked to each other.

Don't worry about that too much lindsay. You've been doing a lot better with it and there's bound to be days where you don't get up so early.

Oh that doesn't sound good!
I haven't been outside but from the look of the trees I can see there is no wind

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 05:57 PM

I'm sorry you had a seizure and I'm sorry that you were ignored. How are you feeling now?

Thanks for your encouragement.

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 06:20 PM

Turns out no one told the nurse in charge that i had a seizure
She asked if i usually had seizures. When i told her i had epilepsy she was really shocked *facepalm*
A+ communication from the mh professionals strikes again!

You can do it!

one_step_closer 30-01-2022 06:27 PM

No one ever seems to have all the important information, just bits. I bet if all your treatment team got together lots would have different information than other people. Having all the facts is beyond people so it seems.

Are you just taking it easy?

Cacoethes 30-01-2022 07:06 PM


Yeah. Just been in bed!
Not that i could go anywhere else anyway...

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 10:36 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 31-01-2022 11:38 AM

Hi, how are you?

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 12:06 PM

I'm ok thanks
Being moved into an en suite room now apparently.
Because of being covid positive. Just had to pack all my stuff.
Which is good because I'm sick of having to put on a mask and wipe everything down with sanitiser wipes when I use the bathroom!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 31-01-2022 12:22 PM

En suites are great, our hospital is all en suite.

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 12:26 PM

2 of the wards are. But the other 2 aren't. This ward only has 2 en suite rooms.

one_step_closer 31-01-2022 02:59 PM

I hope your new room is better for you Beckie.

How is your day going Tamo?

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 03:05 PM

It's ok i suppose!
But I can't see out of the window

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 31-01-2022 03:14 PM

What's the point of a window you can't see through?! You'll have to draw what you think is outside and stick it to the window if you're allowed pencils etc. I'd send you a big poster but I'm not good with knowing sizes.

I'm just my usual.

not_so_insig 31-01-2022 03:31 PM

It's windy outside. But not as bad as last night as it was really rough.

one_step_closer 31-01-2022 03:40 PM

It was windy here last night too and today but not as bad as it was. My local leisure centre's roof was damaged and I bet lots more things were damaged. Are all your things intact Dawn?

not_so_insig 31-01-2022 04:09 PM

Apart from finding my recycling box in the next street I think I am ok. My paper bag has completely gone however but I have a spare. Can watch TV through the dish today which is good.

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 06:23 PM

They were singing karaoke in one of the lounges which is very close to my room
Was not impressed.

one_step_closer 31-01-2022 06:27 PM

Is there supposed to be more wind in your area Dawn?

Any decent singers Beckie? :laugh:

Cacoethes 31-01-2022 07:35 PM

There are a couple of very good singers actually but it's still annoying af

shadow-light 01-02-2022 11:13 AM

How are people doing?

I'm having these really strong "run away" urges. Not had them like this for years, in the past they have resulted I me going to a train station and just getting on a random train with no plans or like luggage. Once I went to Germany on a wim like this

Not that I can really go anywhere at the moment, even leaving the house is hard. But wow the urges are hard to just sit with

Cacoethes 01-02-2022 11:15 AM

Hey guys

I get those urges frequently Hazel
Unfortunately not much you can do about it except wait for it to pass in my opinion

shadow-light 01-02-2022 11:18 AM

Ye, I guess. In the last few years when they've happened it didn't matter as had no money anyway, though about 2 years ago I dud just get in car and drive until ran out of fuel - that was an embarrassing phonecall...
Thus time though I have money as got PIP back payment

Going to try to distract myself... bathroom needs cleaning so might go do that with a podcast or audiobook on

shadow-light 01-02-2022 11:20 AM

I'm still in covid isolation anyway so focusing on that as a reason I cant go anywhere

How are you anyway?

Cacoethes 01-02-2022 11:30 AM

Good plan

How long of isolation have you got left?

I'm tired. Bored. Lonely.
And my shower has just turned on by itself which has really freaked me out

shadow-light 01-02-2022 11:32 AM

I think I'm on day 7. I took a test on sunday (day 5) but was still positive

Oh hate it when plumbing does creepy stuff like that
