No you haven't Lindsay as it's the first time I have mentioned it. It's of my late cat.

tamobhuuta 23-03-2024 09:17 AM

Morning guys.

Cacoethes 23-03-2024 09:26 AM

Morning tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 23-03-2024 10:14 AM

I'm ok thanks. Going to leave for Mass in a minute, then big sis is visiting this afternoon. I might start work on going through my hospital diagnosis report... How's the hospital treating you?

tamobhuuta 23-03-2024 12:04 PM

Just got back from mass. It was a different priest from usual but still one I know.

one_step_closer 23-03-2024 12:46 PM

Morning almost afternoon everyone.

That sounds nice, Dawn.

Sounds like you have a busy day ahead, Tamo. Do you have to go through the hospital stuff yourself? Just in case it's upsetting.

Hope you're doing as ok as possible, Beckie.

tamobhuuta 23-03-2024 12:51 PM

Yes, but I will ask Mum and L for help. How's your day looking osc?

one_step_closer 23-03-2024 12:54 PM

I hope it's not too upsetting for you. I've done all my main things so just trying to keep occupied.

long road 23-03-2024 01:38 PM

Afternoon everyone!

I am tired and in pain but trying to do stuff anyway. Our friend K is coming over to play board games in half an hour.

Thinking of you Beckie.

Hope going through diagnosis stuff isn't too stressful Tamo.

Have you decided what to do to keep occupied Lindsay?

not_so_insig 23-03-2024 03:20 PM

Afternoon all. I woke up twice by what I thought was someone knocking on my door but there was nobody there when I opened the door. Either somebody was playing Jack knock or I imagined it or it was for the neighbouring flats and I thought it was for me. Either way it's disturbing.

one_step_closer 23-03-2024 04:47 PM

I hope you enjoyed playing board games, Jen.

Could it have been something knocking in the wind, Dawn?

I managed to read a tiny bit and sorted out a drawer.

Cacoethes 23-03-2024 06:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishes guys <3

L came to visit which was lovely, and i have fresh clothes to change into

How are your days going everone?

one_step_closer 23-03-2024 06:35 PM

I'm glad L was able to visit and you got fresh clothes.

I'm just feeling like there are so many days to get through until I can see my psych.

long road 23-03-2024 06:42 PM

I won the board game we played! Would have had fun regardless but it's always nice to win and it is was a close run thing my last few actions of the game won it for me.

Being woken up sucks Dawn.

Are you enjoying your current book Lindsay?

Yay for L and clean clothes!!

one_step_closer 23-03-2024 07:11 PM

Did you get a prize for winning, Jen?!

I've barely managed to read any of the book.

long road 23-03-2024 07:42 PM

No prize just satisfaction and maybe bragging rights!

Hard to judge at the beginning of a book. What genre is it?

I am really chilly for some reason am wearing a thick jumper and under a blanket and still cold. Brrrr....

Cacoethes 23-03-2024 10:24 PM

Well done jen!

I guess all you can do is get through a day at a time lindsay
I know it feels far away, but time flies by..maybe try keeping busy? I always forget what the time is when I'm busy doing stuff

I wish it was cooler on this ward. Frickin boiling!

long road 23-03-2024 11:39 PM

*fans Beckie with a giant leaf*

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:12 AM

Thank you jen!
It seemed to work and i didn't feel too hot to sleep like the other night!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 24-03-2024 10:24 AM

Morning Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 11:04 AM

Morning! I'm ok thanks

tamobhuuta 24-03-2024 11:27 AM

I'm ok. I slept badly, I think I briefly had a fever but I'm feeling better this morning. How are the nurses treating you?

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 02:31 PM

Afternoon everyone.

I'm glad you got some sleep, Beckie.

I hope you're not getting unwell, Tamo.

tamobhuuta 24-03-2024 04:14 PM

Hi osc! How are you? I'm feeling OK, just coldy. I went shopping with L and big sister, had a good time.

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 04:57 PM

Did you buy anything nice? I am still struggling.

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 05:04 PM

RYL seems to be getting quieter and quieter.

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 05:18 PM

Nurses are ok today!
Haven't seen a dr though so idk what my levels are doing

Hopefully you aren't coming down with something tamo!

It is lindsay

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 05:21 PM

It's quiet because you're not here, Beckie!

I'm glad the nurses are ok today and I hope the night shift nurses are too.

long road 24-03-2024 05:30 PM

Sorry not been around much and so am contributing to the increased quiet. Pain is worse. Not sleeping great and when I am sleeping it's at weird times as it takes forever to settle (6am - 1pm today, 5am -12pm yesterday)

How annoying not to have seen a doctor Beckie. At least tomorrow is Monday so all the people they wanted to consult should be in.

Hugs for your struggles Lindsay

Get well soon Tamo!

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 05:30 PM

Probably true!
I do basically live here, usually XD

Thanks :)
The night shift nurse last night was so so lovely. He should be here all the time! But he's agency. Sad times.

I hear you on the sleep thing jen
Hopefully it improves

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 06:33 PM

Sleep struggles are hugely annoying. I hope you can settle easier tonight, Jen.

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 06:45 PM

Just had a shower :)

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 06:52 PM

Well done, Beckie. Did you manage ok? Has it helped you to feel a little better in some ways?

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:10 PM

Yeah it was fine.
There's a fold down shower chair in my bathroom.
I do feel better
Idk why my hair gets so greasy so quickly in hospital!

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 07:18 PM

Hospitals have weird heating etc.

What are you going to do now?

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:20 PM


I'm watching a film. The sleep experiment

What are you up to?

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 07:22 PM

I think I've heard of that, what's it about?

I'll put on the TV soon.

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:29 PM

Idk if it's based on it, but there's a very popular creepypasta called 'the russian sleep experiment' and it's similar to that, if you've read it or seen it somewhere

What are you going to watch?

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 07:30 PM

Nope, not heard of that.

I have a few things to catch up on. Need to finish watching an episode of Dying For Revenge and have an episode of Casualty to watch. Then will just see what else I have to catch up with.

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:34 PM

Bit disturbing. Not a horror, more psychological

Glad you've got a bit of direction!
I've just been flicking through and vibing XD

one_step_closer 24-03-2024 07:38 PM

I hope you have some good vibes then that keep you entertained and occupied!

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 07:49 PM

Decided to binge House again XD

tamobhuuta 24-03-2024 09:08 PM

I did get some nice things, including a small backpack to use instead of a handbag to help me not lean to one side when I'm walking. Hopefully if I walk straight my leg won't hurt...

I'm glad you got a shower Cacoethes. Enjoy House!

Osc, I've really enjoyed the latest Casualty.

Sorry you're feeling rough lr.

Cacoethes 24-03-2024 09:17 PM

That's good tamo!

Thanks :)

Cacoethes 25-03-2024 06:52 AM

Morning everyone
Finally monday!

tamobhuuta 25-03-2024 11:35 AM

Hi Cacoethes. Good morning all. How are you?

Cacoethes 25-03-2024 11:41 AM

Morning tamo
I'm ok. Can hopefully go home today, depending on blood results

How are you?

tamobhuuta 25-03-2024 11:45 AM

That's good news :) I'm ok. The ward manager emailed to cancel our phone call because she's unwell. A relief because I'm full of cold!

Cacoethes 25-03-2024 12:24 PM

Oh no! Plenty of fluids and rest for you!

tamobhuuta 25-03-2024 02:10 PM

Saw your rv! Glad you're all better :)
