At my age I should be a grown up, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

Cacoethes 05-01-2017 08:42 PM

I don't feel like a grown up still! Every time I really think about my life, like living in my own home and making my own appointments and phone calls it feels like I'm just pretending to be a grown up!

You sure Hannah? :p

It's really no fun in here! I'm not sure what I'm waiting for now!

Wonderland. 05-01-2017 09:04 PM

Have they figured out whats wrong with you yet? Hope you are feeling a bit better on the morphine!

Sketchy 05-01-2017 09:07 PM

Hope you're ok Beckie.

Being an adult sucks. I've lived on my own for 10 years and I still feel like I'm pretending and often phone my dad for advice.

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:20 PM

Anyone around? I need a distraction. I'm just being silly because I was fine earlier on.

Wonderland. 05-01-2017 10:26 PM

I'm around lovely.

Just about to treat myself to a nice hot choc as it's a bit chilly.

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:30 PM

Hot chocolate sounds amazing. I was tempted to open chocolates my uncle gave me for Christmas. It's a set with a chocolate snowman and snow dog from the cartoon and it comes with a fluffy little snow dog.

Wonderland. 05-01-2017 10:37 PM

Aww sounds cute. You should open it soon!

Serendipity. 05-01-2017 10:38 PM

That sounds adorable! You should definitely open them :)

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:45 PM

I think I shall.

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:52 PM

This is the box

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:53 PM

So cute

Wonderland. 05-01-2017 10:53 PM

That is so adorable!

Serendipity. 05-01-2017 10:54 PM

I need one!! :P

Sketchy 05-01-2017 10:56 PM

The box has lots of chocolate lollies too. Yummy.

Buttons. 06-01-2017 04:32 AM

That's adorable!!

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 05:28 AM

Hi Katy! How are you?

Buttons. 06-01-2017 05:50 AM

I'm okay, hopefully meeting my dad in town for lunch and then I'll go and pick up my cigs and whatever else I need before meeting back up with dad and getting a very welcome lift home. Probably getting bus there, which can be a pain with my walking aide but am definitely gaining confidence getting the bus which gives me a bit more freedom to actually get out and about.

How are you lovely?

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 06:06 AM

That sounds good :) you're doing well to keep persevering with it and I'm glad you're starting to feel more confident with the bus!

I am bored bored bored. Just another two hours to go!

Buttons. 06-01-2017 06:14 AM

Two hours until what pray tell?

I'm bored too :P I even resorted to Breakfast on BBC :P

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 06:32 AM

Until my shift finishes!

Haha, even I am not that bored! :P

Buttons. 06-01-2017 06:53 AM

Ahh I remember those days I swear the last few hours of shifts are almost worse :P

Tbf just saw a bit that they are starting to notice a lack of mental health services and beds and disorganisation-No.****.Sherlock.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 01:16 PM

Hey guys!
How are we all today?
I've woken up with a massive headache.

tiptoes 06-01-2017 02:30 PM


Headaches suck, sorry your feeling ill still.

Back to your earlier conversation when you need to worry is when you get called Sir! I was not amused!!

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 02:50 PM

Hi Sarah!

I'm sick to death of this illness crap! Have to go back to gp I imagine! Grrrrr!

Haha! I haven't been called sir (yet!) But yes, that is worse than madam!
Why on earth did you get called sir?!

tiptoes 06-01-2017 03:12 PM

It was in a supermarket! I guess it was just automatic or something.

GP sounds a good idea, don't suffer unnecessarily if you can't wait till Monday do see OOH/A&E. Pain and ill health can unsettle mental health and you are having a good run at the minute! /end of mothering.

What are you up to this afternoon?

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 03:21 PM

Very strange! They must of been on autopilot or something.

Thanks Sarah. I imagine I will be going to one of those before Monday. It's already staying to affect my mental health which sucks because as you said, I'm having a good run!!

Not up.to much. Just resting and watching greys anatomy.
How about you?

tiptoes 06-01-2017 03:29 PM

Being miserable because tv watching devices seem to be conspiring against me and not working! argh!

Resting and Grey's Anatomy sounds like a wonderful plan! It does suck when being ill unsettles things, its like been attack from all angles at once.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 04:10 PM

Oh no! That really sucks. Hope you manage to get them working!

That's exactly what it's like!
I've got some nice soup which is a good illness food. And liquid will probably be easier to cope with rather than solid food. I have to get better soon, it's been like a week!

Wonderland. 06-01-2017 04:25 PM

*gentle cuddles* Really hope you start feeling better soon Bec!

Make sure you give GP/A&E a prod if you need.

Sketchy 06-01-2017 04:36 PM

Hope you feel better soon Beckie.

How is everyone?

I'm at my dad's house. I'm staying over night.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 05:51 PM

Thanks guys

How are you amy?

That sounds nice Lorraine :)

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 05:59 PM

I hope you feel better soon Beckie <3

Are you having a nice time at your dad's Lorraine?

How are you all this evening?

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 06:05 PM

Thanks Hannah <3

I'm ok thanks. Just watching more greys anatomy!
How are you Hannah?

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 06:21 PM

Grey's Anatomy is good! Are you enjoying it?

I am having tooth issues :( Part of my tooth has broken. I need to get an emergency dentist appointment and I'm really scared! I hate the dentist and I'm scared it's going to be a big job.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 06:39 PM

I am enjoying it! I'm on season 2 now and have downloaded them all!

Oh no! Does it hurt?
I've had a broken tooth for about 3 years and because it doesn't hurt, the dentist isn't bothered.

Wonderland. 06-01-2017 06:50 PM

Eww dentists :/ poor you Hannah!!

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 06:52 PM

The dentist does suck.
Kinda feel sorry for dentist though! They must be one of the most hated people along with traffic wardens and bailiffs.

Sketchy 06-01-2017 06:53 PM

Poor Hannah. I hope you get it fixed ok.

I am having a good time thanks.

Wonderland. 06-01-2017 07:05 PM

I don't hate them, I just avoid avoid avoid :tongue2:
They must be lonely people!

Glad you are having a good time L :)

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 07:09 PM

I tend to avoid them too! Had no choice but to go because of major pain. She was actually very good. I've had bad experiences as a kid so I'malways super nervous!
And have to get my wisdom tooth out under general anaesthetic which shouldn't be too bad.

Glad you're having a good time Lorraine :)

Wonderland. 06-01-2017 07:20 PM

We used to have this lovely women, and then it all went to hellll. Had 2 foreign ones who I couldn't understand who broke 2 teeth in half and proceeded to drop them half way down my throat - that was just one appointment. We were always having arguments with this one know-it-all receptionist as she'd always book people in wrong and well we all completely lost it and it was quite hilarious, as after she told us we had no appt - yet had an appt card with her writing on for that date and time, and that the dentist was busy with another patient and we needed to leave. Guess who walked out her room wondering what all the noise was about... our dentist, very free to see us. I don't think she liked the receptionist either :laugh:

And then I went to another one after about 5 years of not going in notts and had an argument with the dentist in there as she didn't believe I still had glue from my braces on my teeth, she thought they were filling *headdeask* and of course her being a dentist and havng a degree knew my teeth better than me. Anywho, I eventually won that one when I got her to clean then and as if by magic the glue came off. You would think they would believe you about whether you have had fillings or not, I mean seriously she got so high and mighty and pulled out the I'm a dentist I've been to uni card, not that shes ever been in my mouth before. Some people!

Wow never knew I needed a rant about dentists before but clearly I did.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 07:37 PM

Ugh! They sounds like awful experiences!!
I was absolutely terrified of dentists when I was a kid. I would scream the place down and try to run away mid procedure. And then I had to have a tooth out and it came out in bits so they had to dig into my gum to get the root out and it was sooo painful and there was a lot of blood!

Haha! Rant away! We all need a good rant sometimes!

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 07:43 PM

Oh my God people, dentist horror stories are not what I need right now!!!! :'( I'm genuinely terrified that any dental work I need will go horribly wrong and I will die :P

ALSO. I'm meeting up with a guy from my dating site for coffee tomorrow! I am terrified of this too! :P

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 07:47 PM

Sorry Hannah!!
I've had good experiences too! And I doubt many people have actually died from dental treatment :p

Oooooo good luck!! First dates are always terrifying!
You must let me know how it goes! *is nosey* :p

I might be seeing this guy again this weekend, depending on how I feel physically.

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 07:56 PM

Oh I hope you're feeling well enough! Failing that, make him come and look after you and bring you cups of tea :P

That is why it will be so tragic when I die from it!! :P

I will let you know how it goes! It will probably be awful haha!

Sketchy 06-01-2017 07:58 PM

Good luck Hannah and Beckie with your dates.

Cacoethes 06-01-2017 08:05 PM

Haha!! We live literally 100 metres away from each other so it would be easy for him to get here and take care of me :p
But I think that's asking a bit much on a 3rd date! Haha!

Don't say that Hannah!! Be optimistic! :-D

Thanks Lorraine. Have you got anything planned for tomorrow?

Wonderland. 06-01-2017 08:06 PM

Serendipity. 06-01-2017 08:07 PM
