Zombie's a personal friend of the band.

I'm only doing so much because I have to now and don't want to prolong this any longer. It's going to be three months of treatment...

Also, soup has to be eaten with toast! And definitely dipped in.

zombiehunter 03-10-2019 08:24 PM

te gods of metal favoured me :-D

chinahorse 03-10-2019 08:27 PM

Well done np.

So I basically eat alternate bites of toast with spoons of soup.

nonperson 03-10-2019 08:48 PM

That's probably a more sensible way to do it. I end up dripping soup everywhere and the toast goes soggy.

Cacoethes 03-10-2019 09:35 PM

I have to have buttered bread with soup!
I don't actually own a toaster

chinahorse 04-10-2019 09:27 AM


How do you not own a toaster beckie?!?! You can get them for like a fiver.

What's everyone up to today?

nonperson 04-10-2019 10:08 AM

Morning all.

I bought my first ever toaster nearly 7 years ago. =)

Not sure what to do today... Want to go buy cat food and pumpkin soup and maybe have a mooch in the other shops (wishful thinking, probably won't happen)... and waiting for another phone call. =/

Got any plans yourself, Lillie?

chinahorse 04-10-2019 10:15 AM

Good plan np, just do as much as you feel ok with.

No plans at all really. Need to go buy magnesium supplements as the shops I checked yesterday didn't have any. Crisis are coming at 5. Should have a bath and do something useful.

nonperson 04-10-2019 10:25 AM

A no plans day can be nice.

chinahorse 04-10-2019 10:35 AM


Should ring the e on. I never informed them I moved in as it's a key meter. And I'm thinking about making a PIP application.

one_step_closer 04-10-2019 10:41 AM

Morning everyone.

A toaster is an essential Beckie!

I hope you manage to get some things done NP and they aren't too stressful. I think I'm going to have to try pumpkin soup since you all seem to be having it.

I hope you have a good day Lillie and get some things done if you can. Hope it goes ok with crisis.

I'm leaving for the hospital at about 10am but I'm still not convinced there will be a bed for me. If I'm admitted I'll try to pop on here as much as I can put up with my phone screen.

nonperson 04-10-2019 10:55 AM

Good luck today, Lindsay. Don't worry about being absent from here. <3

one_step_closer 04-10-2019 10:56 AM

Thanks NP. Leaving good wishes for you all.

one_step_closer 04-10-2019 10:57 AM

And now a cat has decided to sit on my lap...

nonperson 04-10-2019 10:58 AM

Sneak him/her into your bag. =)

one_step_closer 04-10-2019 11:00 AM

That would be amazing! But he'd probably escape somewhere so he's best off at home waiting for me to come back.

Talk to you all later.

nonperson 04-10-2019 11:02 AM


Just got a call for an x-ray appointment so I'm off there in a couple of hours. Better get myself clean and dressed... =/

chinahorse 04-10-2019 11:53 AM

<3 lindsay

Least ypu don't have to wait for weeks np. Hope you've managed to get up

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 01:13 PM

Good luck today Lindsay

Hope the appointment goes ok np

chinahorse 04-10-2019 01:21 PM

Hey beckie.

How's it going?

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 01:42 PM

Same old!

How about you?

chinahorse 04-10-2019 01:44 PM


Annoyed. For some reason my bank have ****ed up and my rent hasn't been paid and it's not showing that I have it set up as a standing order but I went in and did it. So now I need to go to the bank.

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 02:09 PM

Argh that's a pain

chinahorse 04-10-2019 03:18 PM

Missed drs and had a melt down in the bank but it's sorted. One of my mums friends messaged me to go out for coffee but I've politely said next time as I feel wobbly and crisis are coming.

nonperson 04-10-2019 04:00 PM

Glad you got it sorted. Feeling any better now?

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 04:55 PM

Glad you got it sorted Lillie

I have moved back to my usual ward
Just arrived

nonperson 04-10-2019 05:15 PM

That's good. Is it quieter there?

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 05:18 PM

Much quieter!
Only 8 beds here compared to 21 beds in London!
Even the staff member who escorted me was like 'wow it's sooo much nicer here!'

nonperson 04-10-2019 05:26 PM

Oh wow, that's quite a big difference.

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 05:34 PM

Massive difference!

chinahorse 04-10-2019 06:16 PM

Glad you're closer to home beckie.

chinahorse 04-10-2019 06:48 PM

Crisis were meant to come at 5.

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 07:39 PM

Thanks Lillie

Hope they've turned up by now!

chinahorse 04-10-2019 07:59 PM

They came about 6. Have been semi discharged. So I can call if I need but they aren't visiting again.

chinahorse 04-10-2019 08:26 PM

Pizza for dinner :-)

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 08:34 PM

How are you feeling about that?

Yum pizza!

nonperson 04-10-2019 08:41 PM

Ooh, wish I had pizza for dinner.

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 09:03 PM

Me and the staff member escorting me here had a massive discussion about pizza.
She was outraged that I liked pineapple pizza!!

nonperson 04-10-2019 09:07 PM

Aren't you used to that reaction by now? =P

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 09:21 PM

Well, yeah :p

chinahorse 04-10-2019 09:24 PM

Hehe it's a controversial topic.

I don't wanna dry my hair but it'll be wet for days if I dont

nonperson 04-10-2019 09:26 PM


I could go for a hawaiian pizza right now.

nonperson 04-10-2019 09:26 PM

Aw that sucks Lillie. Get it over and done with.

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 09:27 PM

I hate drying my hair
Don't even own a hair dryer!

one_step_closer 04-10-2019 09:28 PM

I have come here into food discussion, not surprising!

Iím on the ward. Kinda having a hard time, just hope i can sleep tonight.

nonperson 04-10-2019 09:29 PM

Hi Lindsay. Sorry you're having a hard time. =( Can you try and stick to your normal bed routine while there?

Cacoethes 04-10-2019 09:31 PM

Sorry you're having a hard time lindsay
Hopefully it will help

chinahorse 04-10-2019 09:41 PM

I echo what the others have said lindsay.

Hair is now dry and fluffy as heck as I didn't dry it properly just made it not wet.

nonperson 04-10-2019 10:01 PM

Will fluffy hair be manageable?

I'm having supernoodles for dinner and chocolate orange.

Edit: although I actually feel a bit nauseous now that it's cooking...

chinahorse 04-10-2019 10:03 PM

Yeah will just plait it tomorrow.

Ugh never been a fan of suoernoodles but mmmmmmmm chocolate orange is delish.
