Cacoethes 17-01-2022 03:58 PM


Yep I totally get you

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 10:03 AM

Morning everyone!

shadow-light 18-01-2022 10:07 AM


Cacoethes 18-01-2022 10:45 AM

Hey Hazel
How are you?

shadow-light 18-01-2022 10:50 AM


Ok I think... I thought I had a care coordinator appointment at 9.30 but he's not turned up so a bit confused... I may have written the appointment down wrong, but part of me thinks something else is going on. Trying to ignore that bit of the brain :laugh:

How are you?

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 10:57 AM

Brains can be funny like that
He might have just forgotten
These people aren't known for being super reliable

I'm just waiting for the crisis team.
Fun times

shadow-light 18-01-2022 11:00 AM

ye... I fully get that me mixing up the time or him being delayed/forgetting are the most likely reasons, but my brain has other ideas

any idea what time they are coming?

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 11:04 AM

Sometime this morning
They just called and they are picking up my meds first
So probably not long

shadow-light 18-01-2022 11:16 AM

care coordinator just phoned, was my bad... appointment was at 9 :eyeroll: going to have a phone appointment at 2 instead now

at least you dont have too long to wait for them then, ets it over and one with

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 11:24 AM

Ah ok!
At least you have another appointment!

I'm stressed though because I'm waiting for a phone call and also have psychologist at 12. So just hoping it all happens at separate times!

tamobhuuta 18-01-2022 11:26 AM

Hi shadow and Cacoethes :)

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 11:33 AM

Hey tamo
How are you?

tamobhuuta 18-01-2022 11:41 AM

I am ok. But a bit tired because my zopiclone didn't really help.

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 11:53 AM

Zopiclone doesn't really help me either

tamobhuuta 18-01-2022 12:00 PM

Sometimes it is like a miracle but other times it does nothing. I haven't found a pattern.

I'm very proud of my brother, he's got an interview this morning for the next stage of joining the navy (though I am a pacifist)

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 12:49 PM

Good luck to your brother!

tamobhuuta 18-01-2022 01:11 PM

Thanks :)

tamobhuuta 18-01-2022 02:06 PM

He's through to the next stage :)

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 02:22 PM

Yay! Well done him!

not_so_insig 18-01-2022 02:42 PM

Afternoon all. My Hermes came thankfully whoever came had the sense to ring my doorbell (whoever came yesterday didn't!). It was my ipod charger in the end. I am waiting for one more parcel which sadly didn't come today :-( . I am waiting for the tesco shopping order.

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 03:10 PM

I also have a tesco order coming today

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 04:08 PM

Hi everyone. Lots of deliveries again.

Amazon has been terrible with me recently. They don't leave a card when I'm out and I only find out they've been and left my parcel on my back door step when I'm browsing my orders online. What if I didn't go on Amazon on a delivery day? Some also tend to knock on the front door and leave the parcel there and get into their van and drive away without checking if I've picked up the parcel. I might not have been in.

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 04:14 PM

Hi lindsay

That's terrible!
Maybe you could send them an email to point it out?

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 04:17 PM

Nah, they might punish me and do worse!

When is your Tesco delivery coming?

shadow-light 18-01-2022 04:19 PM

Do you have the amazon app? It beeps and let's you know when the delivery driver is within 5 stops of you so you know its almost there

not_so_insig 18-01-2022 04:20 PM

My tesco order has arrived! Now to finish putting everything away but I have a cat on me.

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 04:20 PM

Yeah. Mine doesn't do that though for some reason.

How is your day going Hazel?

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 04:21 PM

Did you get everything you ordered Dawn? I think you're allowed to move the cat in this situation.

not_so_insig 18-01-2022 04:27 PM

I had 5 substitutions but thankfully nothing unavailable. I accepted them because in one case they gave me 2 nut bars instead of one. My non alcoholic lager I have had trouble getting hold of lately but thankfully it came.

shadow-light 18-01-2022 04:28 PM

Well I missed my CMHT appointment this morning because I wrote down the wrong time, so he saud he'd call at 2 but hasn't yet... which isn't great...

On the flip side though had a meeting with the police about doing an awareness and anti stigma educational thing for officers who have to attend welfare checks and suicidal call outs. So that was interesting

Now waiting for a zoom thing at 5 about the crisis line. I seem to have accidentally become a campaigner :laugh: not sure how that happened but i seem to be good at it and it makes me feel useful so not going to complain. Pity it's not paid though

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 04:31 PM

My tesco delivery is coming between 8-9
I splashed out on getting an hour slot instead of the flexi saver. :p

That all sounds really positive Hazel!
Good on you!

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 06:03 PM

I'm glad you got what you needed Dawn. Sometimes substitutions are nothing like what you originally ordered.

Good to be an educator Hazel! Did you get a call back from the CMHT?

Ooh an hour slot! Quite late though. Is later more suitable for you Beckie?

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 06:13 PM

No. It's just because it was the earliest one they had
Though I guess I've had various things going on today so it's better that it's later!

shadow-light 18-01-2022 06:36 PM

Nope, not CMHT call... but my phone signal is crud so thinking maybe that's why... Will send him an email in the morning. I'm seeing him twice next week anyway

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 06:44 PM

Cmht suck in general tbh
I hope he'll get back to you tomorrow!

I need to shower. Ugh.

one_step_closer 18-01-2022 07:31 PM

I hope you can get in touch with him or he gets in touch with you tomorrow, Hazel. CMHTs rarely do what they say they will.

Have you showered yet Beckie? Think of how you'll feel afterwards.

Cacoethes 18-01-2022 07:40 PM

Not yet.
I'll do it in a minute
I hate showering

Pomegranate 19-01-2022 04:11 AM

Has anyone spoken to NP or know if she’s away or something? She’s not been online for a few days. Sent her a PM too. Just wanted to check if anyone knew if she was ok?

Cacoethes 19-01-2022 08:55 AM

I haven't.
I did notice she hadn't been around
I hope she's ok

Morning everyone

shadow-light 19-01-2022 10:58 AM

Morning all

Sorry I don't know anything about NP, there's nothing in her last few posts about going away or something is there?

How are people? I just got a 24 hour ban from Facebook :laugh:

tamobhuuta 19-01-2022 11:05 AM

Naughty girl!

Cacoethes 19-01-2022 11:12 AM

Oh no Hazel!
What did you do??

shadow-light 19-01-2022 11:12 AM

Apparently Facebook can't sense jokes

shadow-light 19-01-2022 11:14 AM

I think Facebook took my joke about killing the government and starting over because all the front benchers are as bad as each other and I'm not a fan of any of them taking over from Johnson as they won't be an improvement seriously...

Semi concerned I may be on some watch list now :ermm:

Cacoethes 19-01-2022 11:21 AM

Oh dear!
Fb can be a little sensitive

I do agree with you though!

shadow-light 19-01-2022 11:30 AM

i have the option to appeal, but can't be bothered. I dont reallty use facebook all that much anyway

Cacoethes 19-01-2022 11:34 AM

24 hours isn't that long anyway!

Crisis team still haven't turned up
I have to leave for work at 11:15

shadow-light 19-01-2022 11:43 AM

oh that's less than ideal... can you contact them?

Cacoethes 19-01-2022 11:50 AM

I've just remembered I don't actually want the medication so I don't want them to come lol

shadow-light 19-01-2022 11:52 AM

but... remember that if they dont turn up and so you dont see them and so dont take the medication it's likely they will end up coming more or for longer or putting other things in place. Best to contact them if you can. shows willing and all that. Even if they turn up late and therefore its their fault they will be annoyed that you didn't tell them
