There was lots of snow here this morning!
Its sunny now!

I'm ok. Just bored!

one_step_closer 31-03-2022 02:22 PM

There were small flurries of snow here last night and hailstones so far today. It's very cold.

I hate being bored. Could someone bring your computer console thing (I'm not knowledgeable about these things) or something to give you something to do?

Cacoethes 31-03-2022 02:43 PM

There was more snow and now it's sunny and clear again! Lol

I just remembered i have my ipad! Lol
Decided to watch encanto again!
Are you up to much today?

one_step_closer 31-03-2022 02:49 PM

The weather just wants to be interesting.

Is Encanto a new film?

I actually don't have much to do today, I've already been to Tesco and done a washing. Some days my to do list is long and other days it's short.

Cacoethes 31-03-2022 02:58 PM

Its pretty new! It's really good

Well done for doing those things!
I have days like that

one_step_closer 31-03-2022 04:02 PM

Thanks. I think tomorrow's list is quite long but I'm going to try and make time to go to McDonalds for a treat. Craving a double cheeseburger.

What are you up to now?

Cacoethes 31-03-2022 04:19 PM

That sounds like an excellent idea!

Chatting to my 1:1 about random stuff!

one_step_closer 31-03-2022 05:22 PM

Any interesting topics came up?

Cacoethes 31-03-2022 05:35 PM

Nope lol!

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 09:26 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 01-04-2022 10:02 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 10:08 AM

I'm ok thanks! Just had blood tests!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 01-04-2022 10:27 AM

I am ok. My brother (who I live with) has got covid so I'm cancelling non essential contact.

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 10:31 AM

Oh no!
That's not good!

tamobhuuta 01-04-2022 10:39 AM

Nope. An advantage is my clozapine will be delivered to me!

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 10:54 AM

That's good!

tamobhuuta 01-04-2022 12:06 PM

How was your morning? I washed my hair.

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 12:09 PM

It was ok! Just watching stuff on the ipad!

Well done!
I desperately need to wash mine

one_step_closer 01-04-2022 02:58 PM

Hey everyone. I felt like I got up too late to go to McDonalds so I'm sad about that. Just doing an LFT and I washed my hair.

Are you still in the medical ward Beckie? I hope you and your room mate are behaving!

Sorry to hear about your brother, Tamo. I hope he doesn't have it too bad and you'll all be ok.

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 03:38 PM

Ah that's a shame!
Well done for washing your hair!

I am still in the medical ward. The doctor hasn't come back to see me so i guess I'm staying for the weekend.
Well, someone closed the door so we may have been too loud again!
Her family brought in some board games so we played snakes and ladders and chinese checkers!
I won snakes and ladders and she won Chinese checkers!

one_step_closer 01-04-2022 04:49 PM

It's good that you're having an ok time there if I can even say that. Not terrible anyway.

Cacoethes 01-04-2022 05:12 PM

It's not too bad really.
Though I'm missing my coke zero and caramel coffee!
And fresh air breaks. And vaping. And not being on 1:1!

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 08:33 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 02-04-2022 08:55 AM

Morning Beckie.

Thought i'd try to pop into this thread. It appears very shiny and marvellous ;-)
How are you this morning??

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 09:23 AM

Hello zurg!
Very nice to see you in here!
It is a good thread! :-D

I'm ok thanks!
How are you?

tamobhuuta 02-04-2022 10:10 AM

Hi Zurg, welcome :) Cacoethes is right, it is a good thread.

How are you?

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 10:14 AM

Hey tamo!
How are you?

Zurg 02-04-2022 10:45 AM

I am tired. But had to clean the bird cages as this is the only day i have time. I hope the birds appreciate my efforts. Right now i am taking a sneaky break with vaping and coke :-)

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 11:08 AM

I'm sure they do appreciate it!

I miss vaping and coke!
They won't let me step foot off this ward!
Otherwise I'd go outside for a vape and to the shop for a coke!

tamobhuuta 02-04-2022 11:17 AM

Sorry to hear that Cacoethes.

What birds do you have Zurg? I used to have budgies.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 12:37 PM

Thanks tamo!

My 1:1 keeps falling asleep!

tamobhuuta 02-04-2022 01:21 PM

That's not good!

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 01:51 PM

She said she had a stressful night lol

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 02:51 PM

Hey everyone.

Welcome Kat.

Poor 1:1 but not doing their job is not good.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 02:59 PM

Hey lindsay
How are you?

Yeah. Most of them do fall asleep tbh!
And it is very warm in here which doesn't help! And they're just sitting down all day.

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 03:03 PM

Most of my 1:1 people have managed to stay awake. I can only think of one who drifted off at points.

What are you getting up to?

I'm sleeping later than I want to again. Frustrated and hate myself. Done most of the things on my to do list though.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 03:08 PM

I've been watching stuff on the ipad and chatting to my roommate!
The time has passed quite quickly tbh!
I wasn't feeling good earlier but had lorazepam so I'm calmer now.

That's annoying lindsay. Do you just switch off your alarm when it goes off? You shouldn't hate yourself though. A lot of people find it hard to get up.
Well done for doing the things!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 05:01 PM

I'm glad you're doing ok and got the Lorazepam when you needed it.

Yeah, I have a sunrise alarm so when the light is on I know the alarm will go off soon so either I'm in the mood to unplug it and get up or unplug it and go back to bed.

Are you having dinner this evening?

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 05:06 PM

Thank you :)

Ah that's annoying.

I am! But i can't remember what i ordered though!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 05:11 PM

Is it the day before you order for the following day?

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 05:13 PM

No we order lunch and dinner in the morning after breakfast.
I actually have difficulty choosing! There is quite a lot to choose from!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 05:15 PM

And how are you supposed to know what you'd like before hand? You might have changed your mind before lunch or dinner! I hope you have something tasty.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 05:20 PM

Well, at least we have a choice!
In the psych wards it's just trays of whatever they have and hope you like it!

Zurg 02-04-2022 06:55 PM

I may be a step out of line but what use is a 1:1 if they keep falling asleep….???? I could personally get into lots of shenanigans if someone who was watching me fell asleep. Like, drawing funny eyebrows on the 1:1. Maybe tying their shoelaces together…..
Sorry!!!! The evil genious inside me is having a field day.

Tamo, i have a male canary and two zebra finches.
I also have fishes and a giant african land snail :D

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 07:20 PM

Unfortunately they are still fairly alert. They just nod off for a few minutes each time.
I'd so do that though!

Zurg 02-04-2022 07:41 PM

If you do Beckie, then pics are mandatory!!!!! Let them forever be present in the hall of shame on the internet. Mwuahahahahaaaaa!!!!!

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 07:42 PM

Oh yes definitely!

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 11:22 AM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 03-04-2022 01:57 PM


How are you all?

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 02:00 PM

I'm ok! Might be leaving today! Depending on blood results!
I hope i do because my roommate is leaving and i don't want to be stuck in a room with an old person!

How are you?
