Which Harry Potter are you watching or have you started from the beginning for an HP movie marathon?

I thought food might help but it hasn't so I think I'll try a hot chocolate next.

Cacoethes 21-11-2020 02:49 PM

I’m watching the last one. Ive watched the others quite recently

Hot chocolate sounds good

tamobhuuta 21-11-2020 03:21 PM

I prefer the earlier films.

Cacoethes 21-11-2020 03:35 PM

Me too

nonperson 21-11-2020 03:43 PM

I'm slowly working my way through the books again. Keep forgetting all the details that the films leave out.

tamobhuuta 21-11-2020 03:45 PM

The differences make me cross!

Cacoethes 21-11-2020 03:54 PM

I should so read the books again

tamobhuuta 21-11-2020 03:57 PM

I'm cheating by listening to the audiobooks.

nonperson 21-11-2020 04:04 PM

The audio books aren't cheating! They're great, especially because it's Stephen Fry reading them.

tamobhuuta 21-11-2020 04:12 PM

He's great

Cacoethes 21-11-2020 05:53 PM

Stephen fry is amazing

tamobhuuta 21-11-2020 06:15 PM

I'd forgotten CT are always late!

Cacoethes 21-11-2020 06:30 PM


tamobhuuta 22-11-2020 11:20 AM

Good morning everbode. Hope you are ok. Anyone got plans for today?

Cacoethes 22-11-2020 12:25 PM

Morning tamo
I've only just woken up if you don't count getting up for meds earlier
No plans for today

How about you?

tamobhuuta 22-11-2020 01:06 PM

Normal stuff but getting anxious about Crisis Team too.

Cacoethes 22-11-2020 01:07 PM

Are they coming to see you today?

tamobhuuta 22-11-2020 01:20 PM

Yes they said between 3 and 5.

Cacoethes 22-11-2020 01:22 PM

Hope it.goes ok and they don't keep you waiting too long

tamobhuuta 22-11-2020 03:49 PM

They were EARLY! They asked me what would help but I don't know - if I knew I would just do it, you know?

Cacoethes 22-11-2020 03:57 PM

Ugh I hate it when they ask that!

tamobhuuta 22-11-2020 07:24 PM

How are you this evening?

not_so_insig 22-11-2020 07:38 PM

I have been out. Went past the castle where they're filming I am a celebrity. Nothing to see though except coming back you could see all the lights. Didnt see Ant and Dec. Though the nearest McDonald's there was a queue to get in. We reckoned it was the crew having their tea before arriving at the site.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 10:58 AM

Morning guys
I was, yet again, rudely awakened for meds.

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 11:45 AM

That is very rude!

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 11:54 AM

I know!
Until then I was in a half dream state thinking I was still at home.

How are you tamo?

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 12:22 PM

I'm not great but writing Christmas cards later.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 12:26 PM

Hopefully that will be a good distraction

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 01:04 PM

Have you got anything to stay occupied and safe with?

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 01:07 PM

I'll get my ipad off charge in a bit when they are done mopping the corridor.
Apparently I'll be seeing the AMHPs today about my CTO recall :/

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 01:30 PM

What will that involve?

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 01:32 PM

A very intimidating meeting with 3 mental health professionals about whether I should be on section or not

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 01:53 PM

That sounds scarey.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 01:54 PM

Yep I hate them.
And now I want coffee but it's all kicking off down there so I can't get any :plain:

yoyogirl 23-11-2020 01:56 PM

I got my head buried nhs evidence / nice guidelines at the moment for an assignment but on a plus side at least I am not the corporate network at uni or nhs/ss and I am using a lovely MacBook and not crappy windows product. (pass me sick bucket ASAP)

yoyogirl 23-11-2020 01:58 PM

Hey Cacoethes

Ask them if you stay in voluntary, rather than consider sectiioning unless they feel you danger to yourself or others.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 03:11 PM

I said I would stay voluntarily but they sectioned me anyway. Arseholes

not_so_insig 23-11-2020 04:10 PM

I am sorry that you got sectioned Beckie.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 04:44 PM

Thanks Dawn

How are you today?

not_so_insig 23-11-2020 04:50 PM

I am ok thanks. I got Lorraine's Christmas present today (2 bottles of local lager) so that's one weight off my mind. Just gotta find an suitable box now and some bubble wrap.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 04:58 PM

Sounds good!

tamobhuuta 23-11-2020 05:01 PM

Sorry you're still on section, it's probably for the best.

Cacoethes 23-11-2020 05:53 PM

Thanks tamo
I'm going to ask for some leave tomorrow. At least then I can go for a walk to the shop

tamobhuuta 24-11-2020 11:13 AM

Good morning anyone. I slept terribly. How are you?

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 12:03 PM

Morning tamo
Also slept terribly. Went to bed at 5am and only slept until 8

tamobhuuta 24-11-2020 12:06 PM

That really sucks. Does that mean you're too tired to have incidents?!?

I'm having a nice cup of tea

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 12:16 PM

Unfortunately not :/
It's a mystery as to why I couldn't sleep because I had zopiclone and promethazine and lorazepam.

Cup of tea sounds good. I may go and get one myself!

tamobhuuta 24-11-2020 12:22 PM

Sometimes I have had lorazepam and zopiclone, but it worked for me. Tea is a good idea :)

Cacoethes 24-11-2020 01:51 PM

I made tea. Then got hassled about my care plan so that took about an hour

yoyogirl 24-11-2020 02:56 PM

I am sorry to hear about being sectioned , but they did with you and your best interest/life in mind and risk to life or the life of others. The nursing, medical ad social care were deeply concerned for safety and wellbeing.
