Morning all

I have to go fir an ECG today so up stupid early - OK OK get its not realy that early but when you rarely sleep before 3am it feels early :laugh:
On the bright side I've woken up to a freaking massive payment into my bank account! I think i may have been awarded PIP and this is backpay but going to wait until the letter comes before getting too excited

Anyone up to much today?

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 10:19 AM

Morning Hazel

That's amazing!

shadow-light 25-01-2022 10:34 AM

i mean I'm not going to celebrate too kych until letter fomes, but ye

currently sat outside ECG place trying not to overly panic :laugh: I'm only 25 mins early

shadow-light 25-01-2022 10:37 AM

annoyingly i really need a wee :laugh:

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 10:59 AM

Tbh they may not even send a letter

You'll be ok!

tamobhuuta 25-01-2022 11:19 AM

When I went for my EEG they were running late so for 15 minutes I was sat there debating whether to go to the loo.

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 11:27 AM

Always a tricky decision to make!

shadow-light 25-01-2022 11:52 AM

so i totally embarrassed myself by having a panic attack :ermm: but all done and now home

feejs odd to have been out, done stuff and come back home at a time when I'd normally still be sat in pajamas drinking coffee...

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 12:07 PM

Well done!

shadow-light 25-01-2022 12:26 PM

Knackered now :laugh:

How are you doing? You feeling any better physically than the other day?

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 12:50 PM


Yeah loads better thanks!

shadow-light 25-01-2022 01:17 PM

thats good :)

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 01:24 PM

So glad.
I was super wiped out

one_step_closer 25-01-2022 04:56 PM

Well done Hazel.

I'm glad you're feeling better today Beckie.

I was at the gym group today.

Cacoethes 25-01-2022 05:17 PM

Thanks lindsay

Well done for going to the gym group!

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 10:12 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 26-01-2022 11:13 AM

Hello, how are you?

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 11:17 AM

I had olanzapine at about 2/3am as prn so I am wiped out.
And was woken up for meds, vitals, bloods and covid swab.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 26-01-2022 11:31 AM

Oh dear :( can you have a little nap?

I should have taken zopiclone because I struggled to get to sleep and kept waking up.

shadow-light 26-01-2022 11:40 AM

morning all

I've got a cold :ermm: that will teach me for leaving the house yesterday :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 11:53 AM

I won't be able to nap but I will have a lie down

That's annoying tamo!

Oh no Hazel!
Hope you can rest today!

tamobhuuta 26-01-2022 12:05 PM

*hands tissues to shadow*

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 03:44 PM

I'm watching a series called snowpiercer. It's really good!

one_step_closer 26-01-2022 04:02 PM

What on earth is that about?!

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 04:09 PM

Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, this series centres on the remaining people, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe.

I am enjoying it!

shadow-light 26-01-2022 05:01 PM


shadow-light 26-01-2022 05:02 PM

Not started the new season yet as I know I'll need a full day to binge it all in one go :laugh:

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 05:26 PM

Yaaaaaay! Someone else who watches it!
I have plenty of time on my hands so might as well binge watch something good

not_so_insig 26-01-2022 05:27 PM

I have been swimming today. Was good except for the fact the water was cold. Even the jacuzzi was cold!

I have been unable to wash my hair (hate swimming pool showers) and my costume due to having no water! The council is working on the water main on my street so it appears that the workmen have turned off the water.

But the good news is that my stickers arrived today. I have left positive feedback.

nonperson 26-01-2022 06:28 PM

Where can one watch this Snowpiercer? Sounds like something I might like.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 06:36 PM

It's on Netflix!

one_step_closer 26-01-2022 06:44 PM

I keep forgetting I have Netflix. Probably because my brother pays for it.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 06:51 PM

My family pay for mine now!
They originally used my Netflix but I was always broke so the payments couldn't go out. So it's my account still but they pay

not_so_insig 26-01-2022 06:57 PM

I have Netflix. Only recently so I havent watched anything on it.

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:16 PM

Ah bummer. I don't have Netflix.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:18 PM

Whaaat?! How can you not have Netflix?!
EVERYONE has Netflix!!!

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:21 PM

Not me!

I have NowTV and Disney+ and Amazon which is more than enough.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:32 PM

I had to drop nowtv. I wasn't really watching it and they always took payment at the most inconvenient times!

Me and the junior doctor were discussing star wars when he was taking my blood (i was wearing my star wars t shirt in ward round yesterday)
Now I need to watch them all again!

nonperson 26-01-2022 07:51 PM

Hmm, a Star Wars filmathon does sound appealing!

I still haven't watched the Mandalorian... Shameful. There's the new Boba Fett series too, no idea what that's like.

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 07:53 PM

I'm too into snowpiercer at the moment to deviate from it right now though lol

I haven't watched it either! I also feel shame!
The doctor recommended it!
Yes there is, people on my geek fb group have been talking about it!
And the new film coming out! Kenobi.

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:00 PM

Did not know about a new film! =O

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 08:07 PM

Actually I've just googled it and I think it's actually a series. Rather disappointing! It should still be good though! And it will obvs be on disney +

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:35 PM

Obvs. Yeah I'm sure it will still be good! There's just so much coming out. I can't keep up with it all...

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 08:53 PM

I know! I have so much to catch up with!

nonperson 26-01-2022 08:57 PM

It shouldn't be so hard to watch something new =|

Cacoethes 26-01-2022 09:04 PM

I know!!!
Why is it so difficult?!

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 10:42 AM

Morning everyone!

They woke me up at 7:15am to do my blood sugars :plain:
I was in a deep sleep too and was like 'where am I?!' I literally asked her that! Lol

tamobhuuta 27-01-2022 11:30 AM

Lol oh dear. Did you get back to sleep?

Cacoethes 27-01-2022 11:37 AM

I’m not actually sure!
When I was woken up I didn’t even know where I was at first!
Must have been in a deep sleep.
I think I got another half an hour of snoozing until they started literally shouting about breakfast :eyeroll:

How are you tamo?
(Tamo autocorrected to taco lol)

tamobhuuta 27-01-2022 12:37 PM

I am ok. Took zopiclone and got good sleep. I'm planning to have a shower. Is there anything to do on the ward?
