Thanks tamobhuuta. Unfortunately that meant I couldn't go to my hearing voices group today :-( . Unfortunately I can't do the next one either due to personal reasons. The biggest problem will be boredom as I can't see anyone and there's naff all on the telly.

one_step_closer 20-06-2024 01:39 PM

Hi everyone.

At least try and have some rest time with L this evening if she's going to be there, Beckie.

How are you getting on with your tasks, Tamo?

Sorry you have covid, Dawn. I hope you don't get too unwell and it doesn't last long.

Cacoethes 20-06-2024 01:45 PM

Yeah I'll get some rest this evening

How're you doing lindsay?

one_step_closer 20-06-2024 02:05 PM

That's good. Take breaks when you get the chance though, you don't want to be completely worn out by the evening.

I'm really struggling. Even though I'm doing more activities and have had an antidepressant change I just don't feel any better.

tamobhuuta 20-06-2024 02:10 PM

It's a shame you can't do your group insig. I hope you get better soon.

Sorry you're struggling osc, well done for doing things. One day things will change, I have confidence!

Look after yourself Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 20-06-2024 02:42 PM

I will try!
Though I am always worn out by the evening. I haven't stopped feeling tired since hospital!

Sorry to hear that Lindsay. Sending much love. I wish I could help

How's your day going tamo?

long road 20-06-2024 03:28 PM

Hello everyone!

I just came back from seeing my baby niece. So cute. I got some lovely cuddles in. She is a very long baby 46cm at a week old!

Cacoethes 20-06-2024 03:50 PM

Aww I'm glad you enjoyed yourself jen!

one_step_closer 20-06-2024 04:14 PM

How do you even function if you are so tired, Beckie?!

Aww, so cute Jen. :)

Cacoethes 20-06-2024 04:15 PM

I just have to XD

one_step_closer 20-06-2024 04:16 PM

Do you sleep well at night at least?

tamobhuuta 20-06-2024 04:19 PM

Aw how lovely lr!

Cacoethes 20-06-2024 04:20 PM

Sometimes! Though it doesn't matter what time I go to bed, I still naturally wake up around 6:30-7am. Which is super annoying!
I did have an amazing lie in until 9am last week though! Think it was last week.

tamobhuuta 21-06-2024 06:16 AM

Morning. I'm up early with a sore back.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 07:47 AM

Oh no! Sore backs are the worst.
Hope it gets better as the day goes on

long road 21-06-2024 08:04 AM


Sympathy for your sore back Tamo.

I am up early because ofy asthma and having to take a load of meds last night.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 08:40 AM

Oh no! Not good morning's for you guys!

long road 21-06-2024 09:01 AM

Today has bad vibes clearly...

I have a GP appointment at like 4:45pm this afternoon. Debating whether need some advice before then or can wait until my appointment. Asthma is a bloody nuisance.

How are you Beckie? Wishing you good vibes!

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 09:09 AM

Hopefully it can wait and you won't have to go through the hassle of calling sooner! But do call if you need to!

I'm ok. Tired, as is the norm these days!
Have a couple of people picking things up today, then a job interview this afternoon and need to go to asda and also get petrol.

long road 21-06-2024 09:12 AM

Fingers crossed I can wait. Just CBA with it all.

Hopefully when you are properly moved in with L your sleep might be a little better / longer. I know being tired all the time and it sucks! Good luck with your job interview!

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 09:34 AM

I can imagine!
I had similar feelings when my seizures were bad. Not the same obvs, but I can sympathise with the cba with a medical thing

Thing is, my sleep isn't too bad! I'm just tired for no reason!
Thank you!

tamobhuuta 21-06-2024 09:37 AM

Wishing everyone energy for their days!

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 09:55 AM

Thanks tamo!
Do you have much on today?

Zurg 21-06-2024 10:20 AM

Hi all :)
I'm joining the club of the tired peeps. I was at a 4-year birthday party yesterday. Then kept waking up from restless legs, needing to pee, etc all night >:(

long road 21-06-2024 10:24 AM

Morning Zurg!

4 year olds can be exhausting! Tha tplus a bad night's sleep and no wonder you are tired. Do you have time for a nap later?

Thanks for the energy Tamo!

Medical things indeed suck Beckie.

In good news for me my GP rang and asked if we could move the appointment to earlier in the day. So now my appointment is at 2pm awhile 2 hours 45 minutes earlier!

tamobhuuta 21-06-2024 10:43 AM

I've got a phone call with someone from the GP surgery at some point and my exercise. That's it! I hope your phone call is helpful.

Sorry you had a restless night Zurg!

not_so_insig 21-06-2024 11:19 AM

Hello all. So far I feel much better in myself. Managed to get to the loo and back without thinking I was gonna collapse due to shortness of breath. Might try some mopping if I still feel well this afternoon. Atm my biggest symptom is a runny nose.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 11:50 AM

That's good jen!

I've just moved 2 very heavy bedside tables from L's to mine so someone can collect them. Had to get them down the stairs, then into the cat, then out of the car, then into my house XD

one_step_closer 21-06-2024 12:49 PM

Hi everyone.

Sorry about people's pain, illnesses, lack of sleep etc. At least you're feeling a bit better, Dawn!

You put 2 bedside tables into a cat, Beckie?! :laugh: How did they fit? Good luck with your interview.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 12:54 PM

Oh dear! I thought I had corrected that back, clearly not XD
That would be even more difficult than moving them from L's to mine!
Thank you!

Have you got much going on today lindsay?

one_step_closer 21-06-2024 12:58 PM

Poor cat!

I was supposed to be going to Edinburgh with my brother but I just can't do full days away from home. I'm such a let down. I've been to the chemist and shop and did a washing and hoovered. Don't have anything big left to do.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 01:02 PM

You're not a let down!
If you're not up to it then you're not up to it!
It happens to the best of us

tamobhuuta 21-06-2024 01:06 PM

What she said.

long road 21-06-2024 03:05 PM

Had good GP appointment felt really listened to and unrushed, he is yet again chasing the asthma team and dictated the letter while I was with him.

As for asthma right now keep doing what I am doing and reach out if it gets any worse.

long road 21-06-2024 03:06 PM

I like to imagine the cat that Beckie put the bedside tables in is a massive cat that can eat everything. A bit like a cat form of Kirby...

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 03:17 PM

Kirby cat!

I'm glad the GP was good!

Had the interview, it was good in that they're gonna try me out with some cocktails (they literally know nothing about them so require assistance) but I have some reservations, which can hopefully be ironed out.

one_step_closer 21-06-2024 04:10 PM

I couldn't get it out of my head that Beckie was trying to put the bedside tables in the cat's bum!

I'm glad your GP appointment went well, Jen.

I hope everything works out for the best, Beckie.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 04:15 PM

That's where my mind went.
Glad it's not just me XD

Thanks lindsay!

long road 21-06-2024 04:20 PM

Oh no not up the butt! The poor cat! I am clearly far to innocent minded XD

Kind of cool that you would be the cocktail expert Beckie. Hope reservations don't end up being dealt breakers but if they do I hope you can find another job that suits you better.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 04:22 PM

Not gonna lie, it would be pretty awesome being the only person that knows stuff for once XD
We shall see what happens! Got another interview on Monday somewhere else anyway.

one_step_closer 21-06-2024 04:24 PM

Maybe you should just open up your own cocktail place.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 04:24 PM

That would be sooo much effort!
And takes money. Which I certainly do NOT have XD

one_step_closer 21-06-2024 04:27 PM

You could do it from your car and do a delivery service!

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 04:34 PM

I would need separate insurance and also a fridge XD
Also effort and money!

long road 21-06-2024 05:31 PM

Starting a business means so many forms!

Less stress to be employed (well if you have a good boss it's less stress a bad boss not so much!). It's definitely less forms though!

Still expert Beckie so cool!

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 06:26 PM

Waaaay too many forms!

For sure!

How're you doing jen?

long road 21-06-2024 07:20 PM

Struggling a bit. Asthma and FND are both playing up and scared asthma will get bad enough I have to go to hospital and generally on edge.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 08:07 PM

Everything crossed that things will stay stable!

long road 21-06-2024 08:27 PM

Thanks I appreciate it. I know you get how annoying uncontrolled health conditions are cos of the epilepsy.

Cacoethes 21-06-2024 08:32 PM

The absolute worst!

I'm at L's so won't be online much but I really hope that your night is peaceful!
