I rarely attempt sleep before 3 am Jen. So it's normal for me to be awake this time of night. Mostly r/v if you notice a fair few over the years have been in the early hours. I also struggle at night with getting to sleep.

not_so_insig 09-01-2024 03:39 AM

I don't think that I have seen Oliver and Company Beckie. Darn autocorrect tried to change Oliver to Olanzapine:laugh:

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 04:38 AM

Olanzapine and company XD

Hopefully you're both sleeping now!

I have filled in PIP form of doom

not_so_insig 09-01-2024 09:25 AM

Morning all. I got rudely woken up by what sounded like someone sawing outside. Probably in reality they're scraping ice off their car as my bedroom and living room back onto a car park. But still I don't want to be awake at this time and I cba looking out of the window.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 09:41 AM

Yeah all the cars will definitely need defrosting this morning
It is annoying but has to be done!

not_so_insig 09-01-2024 09:51 AM

I heard a lot of car doors opening and shutting so I was probably right. It's currently minus 1 degrees here so definitely cold. My cat is currently sitting on me purring away. He is probably enjoying my body heat.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 11:09 AM

It's 1 here, but feels like -5 according to my app!


I've just been to asda because i was bored

one_step_closer 09-01-2024 11:21 AM

Morning everyone.

That's not good you've been awake for ages already, Beckie. I hope you sleep tonight.

It's cold here too. I'm going to the gym this afternoon but don't know if I'll even be able to do anything with all the people who flock to the gym in January.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 11:28 AM

I hope so!
1.5 hours is not enough!

I went to the gym yesterday afternoon and it wasn't too busy. Think most people will be at work. Before 9am and after 5pm are peak times

long road 09-01-2024 12:43 PM

Morning I did asleep around 3am or so. And woke up not long ago so got 8 hours just at the wrong times!

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 12:45 PM

I'm glad you got a decent amount of sleep!
I'm on way to my nail appointment. Train was 13 mins late, but should JUST get there in time! Thankfully she lives near the train station!

long road 09-01-2024 01:38 PM

Glad nail appointment timings should just about work out. Trains are so unreliable these days!

I am going to have a coffee and then try and finish my form filling.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 01:44 PM

Good afternoon all. I slept fine! And the guy doing my blood test got me first go, so a good start to the day.

long road 09-01-2024 01:53 PM

That is a good start Tamo. Minimal stand is always best and if I remember rightly they often have to try a few times to hen you have blood tests.

How is the rest of your day shaping up? Anything good for lunch?

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 01:58 PM

At the clozapine clinic they struggle but at the normal hospital they don't.

Lunch is mushroom soup.

long road 09-01-2024 02:05 PM

The clozapine clinic clearly need to study the hospitals ways!

Hope your soup was super!

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 02:16 PM

It was! What are you having?

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 02:18 PM

Literally got there bang on time!
That's actually the second time that's happened with a nail appointment! The universe clearly likes me today!

Good luck with form filling!
I did mine at like 3am. Probably not the best idea on very little sleep and slightly delirious XD
But it's posted now, so what will be, will be!

Hey tamo
That's good! Hate it when they have to try multiple times

maii 09-01-2024 03:25 PM

Good Morning All.

not_so_insig 09-01-2024 03:53 PM

Hello all. I eventually fell back asleep.

maii 09-01-2024 03:57 PM

Sleep is good, insig, hope you get good sleep.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 04:03 PM

Hey guys!

I just went and got a tattoo

one_step_closer 09-01-2024 04:40 PM

I want to see nails and tattoo pics, Beckie.

How's the form filling going, Jen?

Hope your day has continued well, Tamo.

How are you today, Maii?

How's your day going, Dawn?

I arrived at the leisure centre an hour early and the gym was busy but by the time we were going in it was quiet.

long road 09-01-2024 04:44 PM

I had a chicken mayo sandwich with cucumber sticks and hummus for lunch.

I have drafted answers to 2 more questions so making progres

Ooh tattoo!

Glad gym quietened down Lindsay, well done for going

one_step_closer 09-01-2024 04:47 PM

That sounds tasty Jen although I don't really like hummus. Well done with your form filling.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 05:08 PM

I will send pics over fb lindsay!

Glad the gym was quiet. Hate busy gyms!

Well done on form progress jen!

maii 09-01-2024 05:18 PM

I'm struggling today osc but I hope to get out for a walk again today and see if things turn-around. I hope you are well.

maii 09-01-2024 05:38 PM

I'm trying to avoid taking the gabapentin during the day, but we'll see, I guess and I'll have to make judgment call in about an hour.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 05:45 PM

Well done to people who have achieved things.

I am cold. Got 3 layers and my hot water bottle.

maii 09-01-2024 06:10 PM

Stay warm, tomo and likewise to all.

Getting ready to head out and opted to take the gabapenin with me in a pill box. If somebody stops me I can quickly chuck it.

long road 09-01-2024 06:12 PM

Making really good progress just four questions left to draft and I am halfway through one of those. After my tea break I went through and answered all the questions where there was no change as they were quick wins.

Having a rest now and then planning to draft the answer to remaining 4 questions after my rest and then write it all onto the form tomorrow and post it.

I hope you can manage to get out for walk Maii, getting outside always helps my mood.

If ou think you need meds and they don't cause side effects that stop you doing what you need to do during the day I reckon taking them is a good idea.

It is very chilly today Tamo. Hope you get warm soon! Can you have a hot drink to try and help?

The highest temperature here according to my weather app was 3 degrees which feels like -1 degrees due to wind chill.

Cacoethes 09-01-2024 06:33 PM

Well done jen!

It's bloody freezing!

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 06:53 PM

Why would you need to chuck it maii?

Well done lr. L will be here soon with Costa.

one_step_closer 09-01-2024 06:54 PM

I hope you can get for a walk and notice some nice things around you, Maii.

Are you sure you're inside, Tamo?! Hope you have a nice visit and your Costa warms you up.

Sounds like a good plan, Jen. Well done.

Loving the tattoo and nails, Beckie.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 06:57 PM

Lol I'm sure osc. I don't know why I'm so cold, the ward's usually toasty. How are you?

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 07:01 PM

Instead of lol I'm now going to use ic meaning inward chuckle.

not_so_insig 09-01-2024 07:09 PM

I think maii means swallow the gabpentin rather than throw it away. At least that's how I understood it.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 07:11 PM

Ah ok.

maii 09-01-2024 08:56 PM

Oh yeah that is what I meant and I did take it and I think it helped but mostly getting outside helped a lot, but still things don't feel right in my head.

tamobhuuta 09-01-2024 09:24 PM

I'm glad things helped, sorry things aren't right.

long road 09-01-2024 11:42 PM

I have drafted the form. All I have to do is write it up on the paper copy and print off the sections where my answers don't fit on the form! I am now very tired but quite wired.

maii 09-01-2024 11:45 PM

Its ok, tomo. story of my life

maii 10-01-2024 01:36 AM

Good night everyone and chin up :)

not_so_insig 10-01-2024 06:22 AM

Morning all.

Cacoethes 10-01-2024 06:54 AM


not_so_insig 10-01-2024 06:55 AM

How are you Beckie?

Cacoethes 10-01-2024 09:07 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Just cleaned out the piggos and went to asda

How are you?

nonperson 10-01-2024 11:00 AM


I finally got COVID for the first time and am off work and bored... Sympathy please?

But also good morning everyone <3

Cacoethes 10-01-2024 11:10 AM

Oh nooo!
You've done well to avoid it so far though!
How are you feeling?
Being off work is boring af
Sending many sympathies and hope for a speedy recovery!

And good morning!

nonperson 10-01-2024 11:25 AM

I know! Turns out I'm not immune. Thank you for the sympathy!

It's just a heavy head cold. I do feel terrible but I have had worse colds before! I just don't want to spread it around and I never have time off work for illness anyway and it's fecking freezing out there so I'm much better off being home =P

What're you doing with the rest of your day?
