I got a dreamies Christmas treat bundle Lindsay.

I am glad that the card arrived safely and you like the stamp Beckie. I thought it would make a change from an ordinary first class stamp one.

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 07:52 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 13-10-2022 09:31 AM

Morning, how are you?

not_so_insig 13-10-2022 10:16 AM

Morning all. I have had to divert a parcel which was coming today and put it back until tomorrow. It is an expensive and high demand product so will probably get nicked if it is left on my doorstep. Unfortunately I have an appointment with my cpn today at the cmht plus the hearing voices group today so I can't stay in and wait for said parcel.

tamobhuuta 13-10-2022 10:59 AM

That's a shame insig. I'm intrigued as to what it is!

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 10:59 AM

I'm ok thanks
Cmht called though and cpn is off sick so won't be seeing her tomorrow. Meh.

tamobhuuta 13-10-2022 12:59 PM

That's not good. Do you know when you will see them?

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 01:07 PM

Nope! Apparently she'll call me at some point to reschedule :eyeroll:

tamobhuuta 13-10-2022 01:18 PM

I hope you don't have to wait too long.

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 01:26 PM

Hopefully not. It's really hard to find time because I'm so busy and obviously she's busy too!

one_step_closer 13-10-2022 03:51 PM

Hi everyone.

I'm sorry you're not able to see your CPN right now, Beckie. I hope you get an appointment soon.

I hope you have a good day today, Dawn and get your parcel ok tomorrow.

My brother's new phone got sent to me for some reason and he asked me to post it to him because he's going on holiday on Saturday. He thought there was a 9am delivery thing but the quickest way to get it there would be before 1pm on Saturday. So he won't get it on time for his holiday. I just hope his flatmate can take it in in case it gets sent to a delivery office or something and it gets lost.

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 03:58 PM

Thanks lindsay

Oh that's weird!
Yeah got to be careful with expensive items like that.

one_step_closer 13-10-2022 04:18 PM

It doesn't help with them striking.

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 04:32 PM

Ohh yeah i forgot about that!
How annoying

one_step_closer 13-10-2022 04:34 PM

They have reasons for doing it so...

It's just inconvenient for customers.

Everyone seems to be striking. The train people too in some places.

Cacoethes 13-10-2022 04:49 PM

Well yes absolutely!
I do tend to be in support of strikes.
It is inconvenient though

Yep. We usually get hit by the train strikes.
I guess being a line with direct links to London we will always be affected!

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 07:42 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 14-10-2022 10:39 AM

Good morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 12:19 PM

I'm ok thanks. A GP was supposed to call me this morning but hasn't yet. I suppose it's only just this afternoon! But I'm sick of being in the house lol

How are you?

tamobhuuta 14-10-2022 01:03 PM

Doctors' phone calls are so unreliable. I hope they ring soon.
I am ok. I asked a member of staff what the outcome of my ward rounds was and she said she would talk to the psych and get back to me. So I'm waiting too :)

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 01:16 PM

Usually they are very good! They must be really busy.

Hope you hear soon!

one_step_closer 14-10-2022 02:05 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope the GP has phoned by now, Beckie. It's annoying being stuck inside waiting for things.

I hope the outcome of your ward round included steps to help you right now and not have to wait till your next ward round. I hope you hear soon and feel ok about the conclusion.

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 03:04 PM

She phoned when i was in asda lol

Have you been up to much today lindsay?

maii 14-10-2022 03:34 PM

Hi everyone :)

I hope you are all doing better than I am. I see my therapist today, but because I'm not 100% honest, I just go in circles. If I were to tell him I'm suicidal and hopeless, I'd be hospitalized again.

I don't know, this time of the year is rough and I can't think clear anymore. Luckily I don't have to attend celebrations because that was torture and I don't eat others food and I get the million questions:

"Why are you not eating" ... "You are too skinny" ... "Are you anorexic"

I don't call them fatazz, but I'm not doing well and I don't expect you folks to help me, but knowing I'm not alone does help.

Sorry everyone ;(

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 03:40 PM


This is more of a general chat thread but if you would like more support about mental health stuff, you could post in one of the support boards!
There's the ED board if you're worried about that or the serious board if you'd like support for feeling suicidal and stuff :)

Thank you, you seem very kind. I will look over the support boards and I don't want to bring others down here.

How are you doing?

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 04:48 PM

No worries!
I hope you find the support you need :)

I'm ok thanks.

Have you been up to much today?

one_step_closer 14-10-2022 05:06 PM

Were you able to talk in Asda, Beckie? You were supposed to stay in not sneak out to Asda. :laugh:

Hi Maii, I hope you find the support you need. You're welcome to post here for a chat with us.

I just went to Tesco and put a washing on. Plus my usual stuff.

What's everyone doing for the rest of the day?

tamobhuuta 14-10-2022 05:09 PM

L and her friend L are coming to see me soon. She is bringing me veggie nuggets from Maccy Ds.

one_step_closer 14-10-2022 05:11 PM

That sounds good, I hope you enjoy the visit and the nuggets. :-)

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 05:13 PM

Yeah i just kind of aimlessly walked around asda talking to the GP for a bit XD
It was fine. I wasn't talking about anything super personal! Just couldn't deal with staying in the house!

My pharmacy just called and said my prescription is ready. The doctors only sent it over a few hours ago!
So about to head out to pick it up
Also need to put washing away and shower. And change bedsheets which i have just decided I'll do lol

Sounds nice tamo! Enjoy!

one_step_closer 14-10-2022 05:16 PM

That's a lot to be doing in one evening!

tamobhuuta 14-10-2022 05:34 PM

Ooo also I've got a zoom meeting this evening about St Teresa of Avila, I just hope I can concentrate.

not_so_insig 14-10-2022 06:28 PM

My parcel arrived this morning so I didnt have to wait all day for it. I have used the contents and it's ok.

Cacoethes 14-10-2022 06:46 PM

I have done all my stuff! Also put meds in dossete box and shaved. And changed my toothbrush head.
And threw away some bedsheets that I don't use anymore.

tamobhuuta 14-10-2022 08:36 PM

Only 100 people could get on the lecture and none of them were me.

I'm glad you got your parcel insig.

Well done on the jobs Cacoethes.

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 08:15 AM

Morning everyone!

nonperson 15-10-2022 09:52 AM


How are we all?

tamobhuuta 15-10-2022 10:01 AM

Good morning, how are you both? I am wondering about going on leave this morning (see Serious)

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 11:24 AM


I'm ok. Had taekwando this morning then quick outfit change and ran for the bus to see Jasmine!

How are you guys?

tamobhuuta 15-10-2022 12:50 PM

I hope you had a nice time at taekwando and with Jasmine

My ma didn't feel confident taking me on leave so we had coffee on the ward as usual.

one_step_closer 15-10-2022 02:43 PM

Hey everyone.

I hope you enjoy your time with Jasmine, Beckie.

I'm glad you're not being forced out, Tamo. You'll need to be safe on the ward now or it might go against you.

Hi NP, I miss you in this thread.

nonperson 15-10-2022 04:42 PM

Hi Lindsay. I shall try harder to be talkative <3

Have you been up to much today?

I'm just starting to watch the season finale of the Rings of Power. Has anyone else been watching?

one_step_closer 15-10-2022 04:46 PM

You don't have to. NP, if it's not what you need/can manage right now.

I've just been doing my usual housework.

I've never heard of that so obviously haven't been watching! My favourite watch right now is The Office.

nonperson 15-10-2022 04:54 PM

I do miss chatting with you guys though. Talking/online company is probably what I need even if it seems too hard.

Well done for the housework. It's an important task.

Rings of Power is a Lord of the Rings series on Amazon. I think it's good but there are dividing opinions between LotR fans.

I never managed to get into the Office. Can't really stand Ricky Jervais!

one_step_closer 15-10-2022 05:03 PM

Just do what safe things you can. I'm sorry things are hard for you right now.

Well as long as you're enjoying it that's the main thing!

I'm on season 7 of The Office and have only seen Ricky Gervais on it once in a small role.

nonperson 15-10-2022 05:37 PM

I thought he was a main character? Or are you watching the US version?

Also, realised now I spelled his name wrong.

Cacoethes 15-10-2022 05:47 PM

Hey guys!

Nice to see you np!
You don't have to be talkative if you don't want to, alwahs nice to hear from you though :)

I haven't watched the rings of power finale yet! I have enjoyed the series so far though.

Me and Jasmine had a lovely time!
We did some shopping, saw Lyle Lyle Crocodile in the cinema (very good, highly recommend!) Then went to McDonald's. Jasmine has just been picked up and I'm waiting for the bus to leave.
Bit nervous because it's the 74 and it goes a lot further than my town now. So even though i double checked with the driver, i am worried that I'm going to end up in H, and i have no idea where that actually is apart from a place with very little public transport XD

nonperson 15-10-2022 06:02 PM

Well you at least know H has one bus you can get back home! Just make sure you get off when you recognise where you are.

tamobhuuta 15-10-2022 06:15 PM

I hope the bussing is going ok.
