Morning guys

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 09:32 AM

Morning Beckie how are you? I have an union meeting this afternoon and Lorraine has sent me a parcel so I am hoping it arrives before I go out!

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 09:45 AM

Im ok thanks
So tired!

Hope the parcel comes soon then!

I have a recovery college open day to go to.
I don't really want to go because I'm so tired but both CC and employment person said I need to go

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 09:49 AM

Good luck with the recovery college Beckie. I am not sure what it is though.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 10:35 AM

It's just courses to help with mental health recovery.
Like employment help and how to cope with emotions and stuff like that. There's a first aid course that I want to do.

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 10:39 AM

My parcel has arrived.

That sounds interesting Beckie.

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 10:50 AM

Oooo a parcel! I love post.

I'm going round my big sister's later.

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 12:39 PM

I am back. Union meeting was abandoned due to the fact that only me and Mike turned up! Needed an minimum of 3 people to hold an meeting.

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 12:47 PM

Oh dear that's a shame. Do you have to go back to work?

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 12:52 PM

I am not in work tamobhuuta so I am home now.

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 12:55 PM

That's good. Any plans?

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 01:08 PM

Other than watching tv no plans.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 01:21 PM

I'm back from the open day
Was actually quite good
My CC was there so she went round with me and we had a laugh

not_so_insig 10-09-2019 01:23 PM

That's good Beckie.

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 01:47 PM

I'm glad you had a good time Cacoethes. Did you see anything you thought might be helpful?

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 01:50 PM

I've signed up for first aid, wellbeing course and problem solving.
Not sure what the last two are really about but thought I'd give them a go!

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 01:53 PM

They sound interesting. We have a recovery college but it looks totally unhelpful.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 02:11 PM

Do they have open days?
Might be worth having a look
I wasn't sure about it either

Also looking into a peoples participation thing. Where people do talks to uni students and assess new staff and inpatient units and stuff. And you get paid for doing it!

Eska 10-09-2019 02:12 PM

That all sounds really good Beckie :)

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 02:26 PM

Yep! :)

How are you eska?

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 04:37 PM

There's just posters up in the reception area.

I should go for a walk but feel wobbly so I'm having a herbal tea in front of the TV. Maybe I will go for the walk later.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 04:59 PM

Herbal tea and TV sounds like a good plan if you're not feeling great

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 05:41 PM

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 05:43 PM

Hi lindsay
How are you?

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 05:45 PM

I'm ok. Had a dentist appointment and he said it's not a filling that keeps coming out it's just a sealant and it's not a big deal. He said he has no idea why the previous dentist said the tooth might need to come out. So I'm relieved.

Do the recovery college classes start at various points throughout the year?

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 05:46 PM

Good news then osc?

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 05:49 PM

Very good news. My teeth aren't being as rebellious as I thought!

How are you feeling now Tamo?

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 06:27 PM

That's good news lindsay!

Yes they start at various points
I think the ones I chose are either later this month or next month.

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 07:16 PM

I hope you enjoy the classes and they're useful for you.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 10-09-2019 07:27 PM

Great news Lindsay!

Hope you enjoy the classes too Beckie

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 07:30 PM

How are you doing E&C?

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 07:32 PM

Feeling better thanks. Had a bit of dinner, now watching TV until it's acceptable to go to bed.

one_step_closer 10-09-2019 07:32 PM

I'm glad you're feeling better. What's on TV?

EyelinerAndCigarettes 10-09-2019 07:41 PM

I'm okay thanks Lindsay :)

Sounds good Tamo, I'm doing the same but with music

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 07:43 PM

Thanks guys

Glad you're feeling better tamo

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 07:51 PM

Friends of course!

Our L has broken her kneecap :(

EyelinerAndCigarettes 10-09-2019 07:53 PM

Oh no Tamo, I hear that's really painful!

Stellata 10-09-2019 07:54 PM

I've been to lots of Recovery College courses, Beckie.

Cacoethes 10-09-2019 07:54 PM

Oh no that's not good!

How did you find them katie?

tamobhuuta 10-09-2019 07:55 PM

She's got a horrific bruise but she's taking painkillers.

nonperson 10-09-2019 08:30 PM

Oh poor L. I suppose there's not much they can do for a broken kneecap?

I'm also watching Friends, Tamo. Are you watching on Sky? I just saw the end of the one with Phoebe singing to the bagpipes. Always makes me laugh.

Stellata 10-09-2019 08:38 PM

Beckie, they were good for meeting other folk in similar situations, and getting some generic information. But way too many power points for my liking. That may be just how they do it in my CCG however.

EyelinerAndCigarettes 11-09-2019 06:52 AM

Morning everyone :)

Cacoethes 11-09-2019 08:24 AM


EyelinerAndCigarettes 11-09-2019 08:34 AM

How are you Beckie?

tamobhuuta 11-09-2019 09:35 AM

Hi all.

tamobhuuta 11-09-2019 10:43 AM

Yeah I was watching it on Sky.

If her kneecap hasn't healed in 4 to 6 weeks she'll need to go to the fracture clinic.

Cacoethes 11-09-2019 11:43 AM

I'm ok thanks

How are you guys?

EyelinerAndCigarettes 11-09-2019 11:53 AM

I'm okay, too. Just waiting for support to turn up.

one_step_closer 11-09-2019 12:50 PM

I could not work in the medical profession, just reading about a broken kneecap is making me have empathy knee pain!

How is everyones day going?
