True that. Just not quite adjusted to my current capabilities. I think I am going to log off, I want to to try taking my strong painkillers for the pain but I don't trust myself on the internet when I take them!

nonperson 01-05-2023 10:02 PM

Very true.

My days are either work or not-work. Nothing else really happens.#

Hope you sleep well or at least get some rest, Jen.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 10:05 PM

Hope you manage to get some rest jen!

And gardening...? :tongue2:

nonperson 01-05-2023 10:10 PM

Well no, the gardening really doesn't happen.

Cacoethes 01-05-2023 10:14 PM

You made a good start though!

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 05:41 AM

Morning peeps
Absolutely did not want to be up at this time but here we are...

long road 02-05-2023 09:59 AM


Ouch that you were awake that stupidly early. I thought it was bad I was woken up sometime around 8am by drilling!

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 10:00 AM

Morning peeps.

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 10:01 AM


Yeah it sucks!
8am would be ok for me!

Have you got much planned for today?

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 10:46 AM

I need to wrap my dad's birthday present. Apart from that just my normal routine. Do you have any plans?

long road 02-05-2023 10:47 AM

My alarm is set for 10:30am and I don't always manage to get up then so 8am is far too early!!

Plans are up in the air. Having what feels like a good day so may take advantage of it. Currently outside.in the sunshine drinking a coffee.

one_step_closer 02-05-2023 10:52 AM

Morning everyone, I hope you all have a good day.

Jen you are being the other half of the Very British Problems Fb status that I mentioned yesterday. It said something like their neighbours had stopped hammering and that was ok but they're drilling now. NP had hammering people yesterday and you have drilling today.

When is your Dad's birthday, Tamo? Are you celebrating in any way?

How are you apart from being up too early, Beckie?

long road 02-05-2023 10:58 AM

The drillin has stopped but I am awake now so

Are you going to gymn group today OSC?

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 11:05 AM

My dad's birthday is tomorrow. We're going out for dinner.

Jealous of your sunshine LR.

What are you up to osc?

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 11:08 AM

I'm usually up around 8am. Which is annoying when i have nothing to do! Though i think the boys would be unimpressed if their breakfast was late!

Don't overdo it jen!
No sunshine here unfortunately! But not cold at least.

I'm ok. Have been released into society for the day after much pestering!
I booked a later train as not sure about buses but here early. Asked ticket barrier guy if i could get an earlier train and he was like 'yeah go ahead darling, platform 3' i asked if he wanted to see my ticket and he said no XD

long road 02-05-2023 11:09 AM

Move to the south west Tamo, I've had sunshine the last two days. Mind you I am sure it will be rainy here while it's sunny over your way some day. The weather tis a fickle mistress!

one_step_closer 02-05-2023 11:09 AM

Yeah I have the gym group at 1pm. Hope the exercises chosen for us actually feel like good exercise and we also have a laugh. I'm finding I'm not 'feeling' the exercises afterwards just the heaviness of weights etc when I'm doing them plus I'm finding it boring.

No sunshine here either. Is it warm sunshine, Jen?

I hope your Dad has a nice birthday, Tamo and you all have a good time celebrating.

one_step_closer 02-05-2023 11:10 AM

Lots of ninjas.

Your pestering deserves an award, Beckie. It's obviously very effective! What are you getting up to?

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 11:15 AM

Have you told them you find it boring lindsay?
They will probably be able to switch things up.
With exercise, i get bored doing the same things too.

The key is to be so annoying that they just want you out for a bit of peace XD
They all still love me :tongue2:

Gonna go home and see the boys, need to use top up voucher at the post office and get passport for ID to pick up new phone. If i have time I'll pop into work again because all 4 people I'm closest to are working today!

long road 02-05-2023 11:15 AM

Over do it? Me? :disbelief:

I am heading inside soon though. There is no shade in my garden and it's too early in the year to stick the gazebo up. So I am getting rather too warm. So yes warm sunshine OSC, I am in shorts.

Hope gymn group is mor enjoyable today. Maybe you are not feeling it much after because you are getting fitter?

Enjoy you're adventure in society Beckie!

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 11:20 AM

Yes you!

Weird to imagine being too warm when everything is grey here!

Thank you!
It's less weird being out today as this is my 3rd time!
Hospital is basically a b&b at this point XD

one_step_closer 02-05-2023 11:21 AM

I'm not saying anything about the exercises in case they make them harder! We have different plans each week, sometimes when we've done all the exercises it says we have to go back and do them all again which is even more boring! I doubt I'm getting fitter.

Enjoy your day, Beckie. Look after yourself.

Wow, Jen. How can the weather be so different! I hope you have enjoyed your time in the sun.

long road 02-05-2023 11:43 AM

I came inside, and folded laundry... I am about to rest a bit now though going to watch a cooking show on catch up TV.

It was only too warm after sitting in direct sunlight for over half an hour. But I am meant to get sunlight in my eyes as soon as possible after waking up to regulate my sleep wake cycle so that's a tick on the daily list for me and it's not even noon yet!

Well Beckie is the other side of the country from me horizontally. And you are far far above me vertically! So geographically we are quite far apart so that accounts for weather variance *nods*

Your hospital b&b would have very bad trip advisor reviews...

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 11:44 AM

I hope you're having fun Cacoethes.

Sorry you're not enjoying the gym group osc. It doesn't sound like something I would enjoy either!

Don't overheat LR!

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 11:48 AM

Just ask to vary it a bit more!
And you may be getting fitter but not noticing, i didn't notice until i did a fitness test with PT and it improved A LOT.

Thank you!
I thought I'd definitely miss the bus and have to wait an hour for the next one but i power walked from the station and made it with 5 mins to spare!

Yes definitely rest a bit jen!

It would have terrible reviews!

The Worst Witch 02-05-2023 11:57 AM

Morning everyone

I have therapy today. My therapist originally said she wasn’t available today but then she changed the appointment to a phone appointment because my anxiety is really high and I probably need to see her.

I hope everyone has good days :)

long road 02-05-2023 12:00 PM

In my shady living room watching you tube and cooling down nicely.

Congrats on making the bus Beckie. Ain't nobody got time to loiter at the bus stop for an hour.

I now kind of want to make reviews of it for the lols...

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 12:17 PM

Hope it goes well ali!

I probably would have hung out in costa but i only have limited time and money!
Don't have to be back until 7 but i need to go via a shop to pick up my phone, which is a 20 min walk. Good news is that the previous train stop is MUCH closer, so it's only 20 mins the one way

You should!
My cmht has terrible reviews lol

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 12:40 PM

My cmht is that bad it has only 1 star reviews according to Google. Main problem is that the reception don't answer the freaking phones. Then when they do they aren't very good/useful.

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 12:42 PM

My godmother is coming by at 1pm. I'll have to feed her!

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 12:43 PM

Hope you have a nice time tamobhuuta

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 12:46 PM

I just had a look at reviews for my CMHT. The only good review has confused it with the town hall next door.

Thanks insig.

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 12:59 PM

I think mine is 1 star too.
But tbf to them, the receptionists always answer the phone XD

Have a nice time tamo

long road 02-05-2023 01:18 PM

My CMHT won't see me XD

Was under the psychology service in the trust for a year and a half though and they were good.

I have a bit of a headache, I may have stayed in sun too long earlier!

The Worst Witch 02-05-2023 01:32 PM

I had to go outwoth the CMHT for therapy because they wouldnít see me either. The reason being Iím autistic and they canít help autistic people apparently :wow:

Having said that, in general the service for autistic people thats separate from the CMHT has been rated one of the best in Scotland so canít complain really.

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 01:32 PM

I am confused what day it is.

Today's tasks include post postcards (one needs stamps) and fill in my union voting paper. Oh and order more cat litter.

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 01:47 PM

Ordered cat litter. Now to do the rest of the tasks.

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 02:25 PM

Cmht seem to be incredibly picky about who they will help!

I am chilling at work. My friend has asked for an hours break to sit and catch up :)

long road 02-05-2023 02:29 PM

I may have over done it. No I told you so's please Beckie.
Still on the sofa and feeling quite rubbish.

The Worst Witch 02-05-2023 02:33 PM

I’m sorry you’re feeling rubbish Jen. I think it can be difficult to judge what ‘too much’ is on a good day, because you’re just so happy its a good day.

Aww, that was nice of your friend Beckie. It sounds like you’re really missing it there, hopefully thats an incentive to keep to the meal plan and get back to work!

Counselling was difficult so I’m going to lie down for a bit. Gentle hugs appreciated if theres any going :)

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 02:33 PM

Oh noo!
I shall keep quiet. Bless you.
I think a lot of self care is needed!

I am really missing it!
Keep getting the urge to go and clear tables!
And went into the office to sign a card and i want to be back so badly!

Sorry counselling was tough. Self care for you too!

tamobhuuta 02-05-2023 02:40 PM

I had a nice time with my godmother, she'd already had lunch so I didn't need to feed her.

long road 02-05-2023 02:41 PM

Self care for all. *Nods*

*Leaves gentle hugs for Ali*

Although I can't really leave sofa to do anything right now. I do have my legs propped up, a blanket, a bear and a cooking competition on TV in the background.

It's a good sign you are missing work in a way means you have a good job! Enjoy your time with your friend.

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 02:43 PM

I have posted the cards. I probably have to go out again because there is a couple of other things I have to post. Fortunately they're not urgent so if I miss the collection then it doesn't matter if they're not sent until tomorrow.

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 02:48 PM

Sorry people are feeling rubbish *offers hugs and cookies for those that want them*.

long road 02-05-2023 04:08 PM

Had an unintended nap and feel a little better. Thanks for the virtual cookies Dawn, they reminded me I had bourbon biscuits!

not_so_insig 02-05-2023 04:16 PM

I am glad you're better Jen. I am feeling quite good as i feel that I have achieved something today by posting the cards. Oh and I washed the rug.

Cacoethes 02-05-2023 04:24 PM

I don't miss the ****ing weekday music though XD

On way back now.
They offered to hide me in the shed :tongue2:

long road 02-05-2023 04:25 PM

Achieving something is always good for ones senses if wellbeing.

Ninja Beckie, lol at them offering to hide you in a shed. Shed might have better reviews than your ward. Still probably more trouble than it's worth XD

one_step_closer 02-05-2023 04:40 PM

*hugs for anyone who needs them*

Well done for the things you've managed, Dawn.

Have you had a good time away from the ward, Beckie? Though I guess almost literally anything is better than being in hospital.
