Cool. I hope all the people are helpful.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 12:42 PM

Thank you :)
I'm just stressing out because the appointments are so close! Hate it when that happens

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 12:44 PM

I hope it's less stressful than you expect.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 12:47 PM

Thanks :)

Was going to go out today but now can't be bothered lol

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 01:40 PM

Where were you going to go?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 02:20 PM

Just the pharmacy.
But I'll go tomorrow

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 03:00 PM

Fair enough.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:22 PM

How's your day going?

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 03:27 PM

Tamobhuuta did you know that Doctors returns next week?

Beckie a new series of 999 what's your emergency starts next Monday. 9 pm channel 4.

I know that both of you like those programmes.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 03:35 PM

Oooh yay!
Thanks Dawn!

How are you?

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 03:55 PM

I am not so good mh wise but I am getting better slowly. Thanks for asking though.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:05 PM

Sorry to hear that
I hope you feel better soon

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 04:07 PM

Thanks Beckie

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 04:20 PM

Thanks insig! Sending hugs.

My day is OK, had the phone call with my godmother which was nice.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:23 PM

That's good tamo :)

I got an email from work HR.
We're all getting a 20 bonus because our pub beat our sales targets :)

tamobhuuta 10-01-2022 04:30 PM

Well done :)

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:35 PM

We all work very hard!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:50 PM


Hi all

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 04:53 PM

Hey Hazel

How are you?

one_step_closer 10-01-2022 04:57 PM

I hope the support you're getting today is helpful Beckie. Well done with working hard and getting the bonus!

How are you feeling now Dawn?

I too like 999: What's You're Emergency. There's a new medical one on my 5 but I can't get into it.

I'm glad you enjoyed speaking with your godmother Tamo.

Hi Hazel, how are you?

shadow-light 10-01-2022 04:57 PM

ok I think, had med review with a psychiatrist today and now have to somehow go over there next week for blood tests which not looking forward to. Feeling a bit restless now but unsure what to do :laugh:

How are you?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:01 PM

Thanks lindsay :)

How are you?

That's a pain Hazel!
Do you know what they're for?


shadow-light 10-01-2022 05:11 PM

the blood tests? Ye apparently got to have them before changing to the new meds so they have a "base line" then they will take them now and again to make sure the meds aren't causing issues. WHat these potential issues are I do not know... currently googling :laugh:

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:14 PM

Ah yeah.
Fun times!
I have medication related blood tests quite frequently.
Thanks lithium!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 05:16 PM

i've not been on any blood test needing meds for AGES so i had almost forgotten it was a thing

zero idea how I am going to get there as no car, no bus route, etc... but will figure that out later

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:21 PM

It's really annoying
But I guess I'm lucky I live a 10 minute walk away from the gp surgery!
If I remember correctly, you are not near anything!

shadow-light 10-01-2022 05:24 PM

been told I have to go the the CMHT building, and it has to be on a tuesday... said building is like 13 miles away on the other side of town

I'm going to have to get a lift off someone, but everyone I know works so it's going to be a whole thing... hopefully it only needs to be taken there for the first one, we'll see

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:27 PM

What a pain
Do they offer any kind of transport service?
Or have a budget for taxis?
When I've been in a&e until like 4am the mh team have paid for a taxi home
Don't know if a cmht would do that

shadow-light 10-01-2022 05:37 PM

not sure... not even sure how you go about getting a taxi in general

it's the only on a tuesday bit that's annoying, the partner finishes work early on a friday so a friday afternoon would have been perfect, but noooo they only do tuesdays :wow:

regardless though at least the psych listened and didn't accuse me of faking or any of the other stuff my brain thought would happen

He's also going to look into getting me some meds for my ADHD :hehe: I've been diagnosed ages but never been offered meds before

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 05:50 PM

That is annoying!
Cmhts are so inconvenient

I'm glad he listened!
It's always a bit of a lottery with mh people

That's good!

one_step_closer 10-01-2022 06:30 PM

That sounds annoying with having trouble finding transport Hazel. I hope you can figure something out. I'm glad the psych listened and you might be getting things sorted.

I wish you felt better Beckie, please take care of yourself and use the support that you have even if you feel it's not needed. At least people are looking out for you.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 06:44 PM

Thank you lindsay
It's not that I'm not grateful for the support, I just think their time would be better spent with actually ill people

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 08:27 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 08:42 PM

Hey Dawn

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 09:01 PM

What you up to Beckie? When you at work next?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 09:02 PM

Not a lot
Was listening to music now watching TV!
I'm at work on Wednesday

What are you up to?

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 09:05 PM

I am watching Coronation Street.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 09:08 PM

I only watch that when I'm with my nanny

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 09:10 PM

Do you watch any soaps Beckie?

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 09:18 PM

I used to watch eastenders but went off it
And used to watch holby and casualty. Are they soaps?
I don't really watch anything regularly anymore!

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 09:21 PM

Holby is finishing in March. I went off eastenders too.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 09:25 PM

Oh yes I forgot about that!
A lot of people are NOT happy about it

not_so_insig 10-01-2022 09:26 PM

I bet loads of people will watch the final episode.

Cacoethes 10-01-2022 09:31 PM

Most likely!
I Probably will, even though I don't even know who's in it anymore

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 09:08 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 09:48 AM

Good morning everybody :) how are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 10:11 AM

Hey :)

I'm still the same
But I'll live!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 11-01-2022 11:40 AM

Aw, would you like a hug?

I had a phone call with my psych, it was ... hmmm. see Serious.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 11:53 AM
