Aubergine 23-05-2018 04:19 PM

The effort makes me feel like I've at least moved my legs a little bit, so it's quite a good think really (in my head anyway, really it's no exercise at all as I don't get out of breath!)

Hello Buttons!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 04:20 PM

A folding bike, Beckie! My electric bike is a folding bike!

Buttons. 23-05-2018 04:22 PM

Hello :) Sounds good Aubergine.

I have trouble folding my wheelchair let alone a bloody bike :P

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 04:24 PM

Ooo a folding bike!
I didn't know they had folding electric bikes!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 04:31 PM

They do! It is a bit old, but cost about 1000 when my Nan bought it! Now she doesn't use it because she needs an upright bike because of her back, so I got it. :D She said it's like compensation because the DVLA are silly and won't let me drive. (But the GPhC will let me hand out morphine and stronger drugs to people. Go figure. :wow:) She is my favourite! (Don't tell the cat.)

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 04:33 PM

Woah 1000?!
I could buy a car for that!
Lucky you for getting it free
Nan's are great!
Why won't the DVLA let you drive?

Eska 23-05-2018 04:39 PM

Afternoon people! I just escaped from work early :)

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 04:40 PM

Hey eska!
Yay for escaping!!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 04:53 PM

I know! My Nan is a bit flush. Sha saved all of her life, as did my Gran, so when my Gran died a few years ago she treated herself to a few things. Including a brand new car and an electric bike!

Hey Eska! Hooray for escaping! :)

They took my provisional off me when I was in hospital and had to hand the thing back when I got out (thank you, Mrs Psychiatrist) and now my psych won't support me getting it back until I've been stable on the aripiprazole for six months. It was all going OK until I lost some meds so halved the dose for a few weeks to eek out what I had left (I know, I know, I should know better, but 'do as I say and not as I do, right?) I went a bit mental and so the six months start allllllllll over again. :plain:

Serendipity. 23-05-2018 04:56 PM

That sounds very frustrating Ducky but you'll get there!

Yay Eska :)

Thanks everyone. I packed some stuff. Now my room looks like a bombsite! Oops..

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 05:02 PM

That's frustrating Aubergine.
Can relate. I was refused my provisional at 17 due to mentals and then psych finally agreed to it and then I started to have seizures. Then had to be seizure free for a year :eyeroll:

Fingers crossed you'll be able to drive in 6 months!

Oh dear Hannah!

Buttons. 23-05-2018 05:24 PM

Well done everyone, challenges included.

Eska 23-05-2018 05:28 PM

I echo Buttons!

I'm home :)

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 05:50 PM

I just had pasta and pesto.
Although I used spaghetti and halfway through eating it my brain suddenly thought of a scene in last nights holby city where there were tons of worms inside this woman's intestines so that immediately killed my appetite!

Eska 23-05-2018 06:14 PM


Cacoethes 23-05-2018 06:30 PM

Very much ewww!!

chinahorse 23-05-2018 07:15 PM


Eska 23-05-2018 07:17 PM

How are you, Beckie? Apart from squicked out?

Hi Lillie! How has your day been?

chinahorse 23-05-2018 07:19 PM

Hey eska and Co :)

My day was ok. Spent some time in the surgery this afternoon shadowing and then I did some exams and fillings. Think I did ok. Really rubbish now though :s

How be you eska?

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 07:19 PM

I'm ok.
Took meds really early because I can't be arsed to be awake :laugh:

How are you?

Eska 23-05-2018 07:27 PM

Sounds like an interesting day Lillie! Sorry you're feeling rubbish now :(

I hope you get some rest soon, then, Beckie.

I'm ok. Feeling a bit confused/conflicted about whether I genuinely have any kind of illness, but there you go.

one_step_closer 23-05-2018 07:28 PM

*hugs for everyone who needs them*

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 07:30 PM

Ninja post Lillie!
Sounds like you had a good day.
Sorry you're feeling rubbish now though

Aubergine 23-05-2018 07:36 PM

Back from choir!

chinahorse 23-05-2018 07:38 PM

That's a hard one eska. Here if you need to talk lovely.

Hope you have a restful night beckie.
*hugs back*

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 07:38 PM

How was it Aubergine?

Thanks Lillie <3

nonperson 23-05-2018 07:38 PM

Just want to say.... Bicycles are evil...!

one_step_closer 23-05-2018 07:41 PM

How did you get on Aubergine?

Has your bike been attacking you again NP?

nonperson 23-05-2018 07:42 PM

No I just haven't forgiven it yet. =)

one_step_closer 23-05-2018 07:43 PM

Let it grovel for your forgiveness. :laugh:

How is your elbow?

nonperson 23-05-2018 07:46 PM

Very sore and stiff with an almighty bruise. =/

one_step_closer 23-05-2018 07:48 PM

Ouch. Are you managing to work out ways to do things without too much pain and discomfort?

nonperson 23-05-2018 07:55 PM

It's fine to move and do most things really. I just have to remember that I can't lean on it or use it to open my car door. And not to bend it too quickly because it feels like it's going to open up again.

My thigh is also an interesting rainbow of colours now too!

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 07:56 PM

Oh dear!!
Silly bike

nonperson 23-05-2018 07:58 PM

Yes it's all the bike's fault! =P

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 08:02 PM

Totally :p

nonperson 23-05-2018 08:17 PM


What's everyone up to tonight?

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 08:19 PM

I'm going to watch this episode of criminal minds then bed!

chinahorse 23-05-2018 08:21 PM

Grr the silly bike!!

I'm watching gp behind closed doors. It's ok enough.

Cacoethes 23-05-2018 08:21 PM

I quite like that show Lillie!

nonperson 23-05-2018 08:24 PM

I watched an episode of it once, I think. Not something I'd usually choose but it kept me watching.

Eska 23-05-2018 08:24 PM

I'm watching that too Lillie

nonperson 23-05-2018 08:30 PM

I'm back on Big Bang again now.

Buttons. 23-05-2018 09:10 PM

You can never go wrong with Big Bang Theory!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 09:55 PM

Love Big Bang Theory!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 09:56 PM

Any bicycles do not suck! I got a free helmet. :D The county I live in has a cycle scheme going on and there were vouchers for a 30 helmet being given out to people who cycle to work. So I got one. :D

Serendipity. 23-05-2018 10:04 PM

That's good Ducky :D

How was choir?

I hope you've all had a good evening!

Aubergine 23-05-2018 10:29 PM

How's it going, Hannah? :)

Choir was fun!

My evening has been good. I really need to tidy my flat tomorrow though. And my sandals broke. :( So I need to go into town tomorrow and take them back, which I really hate doing!

Serendipity. 23-05-2018 10:35 PM

Oh, that is sad about your sandals! I hate doing that too but it will be fine! I'm glad choir was fun! :)

Not bad thanks! I'm tired though. Hopefully I will actually be able to sleep tonight!

Buttons. 23-05-2018 10:38 PM

Glad you enjoyed choir :)

Hope you get some sleep Hannah :)
