Voldemort 06-12-2016 08:56 PM

I've got a couple of seasons, yeah. I'm flying through it right now though.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 08:59 PM

That should keep you going for a little while. It's amazing how fast it is to get through a box set when you're enjoying it.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:02 PM

Yeah, especially when there's nothing else to do.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:02 PM

True. Hospitals are pretty boring.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:04 PM

Yes, they are. And Ritzi told me today that she won't take me home again any time soon which sucks balls.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:06 PM

Sorry to hear that. Is there any reason why or any way she could be persuaded?

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:12 PM

Oh a few reasons but the one at the moment is that I'm not eating enough.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:13 PM

She's probably worried about you.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:13 PM

Maybe in time she will change her mind.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:17 PM

She is worried and I get that, it just seems unfair to me.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:18 PM

I understand. I know how precious time away from hospital is.

Buttons. 06-12-2016 09:19 PM

Like previously said probably a decision out of concern for you. Know it' still frustrating though.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:19 PM

It is yeah, especially as if I am 'psychotic' (don't think I am) the new medication can take a while to work.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:21 PM

Ninja posted, Katy.

Buttons. 06-12-2016 09:23 PM

I had trouble with 'psychosis' diagnosis too but someone pointed out to me when struggling why would anyone bother to lie about something like psychosis if there isn't any?

Thinking of you anyway x

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:24 PM

It's real! But yes. Wrong thread for this really.

not_so_insig 06-12-2016 09:26 PM

I am back! I did go to the post office in the end Lorraine. I posted all the UK ones too (not at the post office though) with the exception of my friend. That's because I realised a different friend has a birthday later on this month so therfore I have to buy a birthday card. So rather than a generic card I thought that I would get a special Christmas card. Unfortunately I realised when I was on the bus so it looks like I will have to go back to town. I am not going tomorrow though.

I had one of my parcels that I won over the weekend come today (a nes mini console) and two have been posted so hopefully they will come soon.

Cacoethes 06-12-2016 09:28 PM

Hey guys.

Sorry to hear you won't be going home again soon amy. But you will get there in the end *hugs*

I'm now home watching holby.

Glad you got most of your letters done Dawn!
Hope your parcels come soon!

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:28 PM

Wow, sounds like you were busy, Dawn.

Sketchy 06-12-2016 09:29 PM

Glad you got your parcel Dawn. That's good you got to the post office.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:29 PM

Ninja'd again! How are you doing, Beckie?

Cacoethes 06-12-2016 09:42 PM

Too many ninjas in this thread!

I'm good thanks! :)
Any plans for this evening?

Buttons. 06-12-2016 09:49 PM

Yeah but we're awesome so...:woot:

My evening plan is stay safe, watch Harry Potter and ignore noisy neighbours :P

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:51 PM

Sounds good, Katy.

My plans are more tree hill and hopefully a phone call to Ritzi.

Cacoethes 06-12-2016 09:54 PM

We are totally awesome!

Sounds like good plans both of you!
I'm not sure what to do after holby has finished. Probs see what else is on TV and take my meds!

Voldemort 06-12-2016 09:56 PM

Sounds like a plan.

not_so_insig 06-12-2016 10:01 PM

I am not doing anything tonight. Normally my parents would visit but my dad phoned saying that his cold is bad and therefore he doesn't want to spread it to me. So he is coming tomorrow instead.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 10:02 PM

Probably the best idea! There's no fun in being sick.

not_so_insig 06-12-2016 10:05 PM

Yes especially as I want to go swimming next week because I can't go tomorrow. Next week is the last week I can do before the kids break up.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 10:06 PM

Swimming is always nice.

Cacoethes 06-12-2016 10:07 PM

This time of year is awful for colds and the like!

2 people in my class at college have pretty bad coughs! I felt like I should be wearing a face mask to protect myself against germs! I've only just got over a chest and bladder infection!

I'm watching QI. Love this show!

Voldemort 06-12-2016 10:09 PM

Ah yeah, QI is good. Thankfully nothing seems to be spreading round the hospital.

not_so_insig 06-12-2016 10:15 PM

I have never seen QI.

Buttons. 06-12-2016 10:18 PM

QI is awesome! I was a bit concerned when Stephen Fry left but I think Sandi is doing a fab job :)

Voldemort 06-12-2016 10:20 PM

I've not seen it since Stephen Fry left.

Buttons. 06-12-2016 10:23 PM

I thought it'd be **** but imo it's still good.

Voldemort 06-12-2016 10:24 PM

Well that's good.

Cacoethes 06-12-2016 10:36 PM

I only see QI on Dave so naturally, all the episodes i watch are from about 10 years ago!
I love Stephen Fry!
Fun fact, my mum met him once when she was about my age. He appeared in a pub in rural norwich where my mum was having lunch with her work friends. It was the first time he had appeared in public after a breakdown and turns out he was friends with one of my mum's colleagues so he sat down with them and chatted and stuff.
I was sooo jealous when she told me!

Voldemort 06-12-2016 11:11 PM

Omg! I'd be jealous too!! That's amazing.

I've taken my meds so gunna try sleep now.

Serendipity. 07-12-2016 12:03 AM

QI without Stephen Fry is wrong. WRONG.

I hope you sleep well Amy!

HopeRises 07-12-2016 12:59 AM

isn't he from Norwich?

Buttons. 07-12-2016 05:24 AM

Beckie I am so jealous of your mum!!!

You know the imaginary dinner party where you could invite anyone you like? Stephen Fry is always on my list!

Cacoethes 07-12-2016 12:25 PM

Yes he is from Norwich. One of the reasons I'm proud to be from there!

Stephen Fry is awesome.
Also, Hugh Laurie lives down the road from my mum :p
Apparently him and Rowan Atkinson are really good friends and Rowan was spotted trying to get this tree shredder thing through the gates of Hugh Lauries place and it was exactly like a Mr Bean sketch because the gate kept closing on him and he was really struggling to get through! Wish I'd been there to see that!

Morning guys!
Got my cc coming at 12:15. Cba for conversation!

not_so_insig 07-12-2016 12:38 PM

I might have the nurse who is currently in charge of my care visiting too Beckie. I know how you feel I am having one of those days where I am finding human interaction exhausting.

Cacoethes 07-12-2016 01:00 PM

It can be such hard work talking to these people!
Although me and my cc always just end up talking about tv shows and food!

not_so_insig 07-12-2016 01:31 PM

I don't have any talk about general stuff with my current nurse which I used to have with my regular cpn. That's what I miss the most.

Cacoethes 07-12-2016 02:26 PM

That's a shame. It's hard seeing new people. Especially when you are expected to open up to people you don't know very well.

not_so_insig 07-12-2016 02:39 PM

Yeah I only saw her a few times before my cpn went off sick. But the good news is that she phoned me and said that she is going to do my depot after my psych appointment tomorrow. So I don't have to see anyone until my parents come visiting this evening. Which I am secretly pleased about.

Cacoethes 07-12-2016 04:56 PM

That's good.
Hope you have a good time with your parents tonight!
