Good morning.

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 10:20 AM

How are you?

tamobhuuta 14-04-2022 10:23 AM

I'm ok. Woke up at 9! How are you?

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 10:38 AM

I was up at 9 also!
One of the girls rang me for fresh air break

I'm ok. Bit nervous about ward round. It's at 11am

one_step_closer 14-04-2022 12:07 PM

Afternoon everyone. How are you feeling physically today Tamo?

I saw your r/v Beckie, can we celebrate?! I hope home life treats you well and you have the support you need and keep taking your meds. Make sure you have lots of fun too!

tamobhuuta 14-04-2022 01:06 PM

I'm ok thanks osc :) but super spasmy! how are are you?

Good news Cacoethes!

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 01:57 PM

Yes we can celebrate!!!
I am super excited!
If the crisis team every actually call!

one_step_closer 14-04-2022 02:15 PM

Has your Covid passed Tamo? Having spasms must be annoying. Are you still managing to do things?

Are you waiting for the call on the ward before you go or are they phoning you at home?

I'm trying to be ok.

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 03:11 PM

I've just had a video call with crisis!
Now it's up to the ward to sort stuff out.
Which will probably take FOREVER!

Hugs if wanted lindsay <3

Zurg 14-04-2022 04:11 PM

Woah, getting your freedom back sounds super complicated, Beckie :-(
I hope they hurry!!!

Lindsay, when you say you are trying to be okay it does Sound like you're not really okay…. Is there anything we can do??

I hope the spams have ended Tamo.

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 04:54 PM

It really is!
Well, this place does its best to make it complicated anyway!

Zurg 14-04-2022 04:57 PM

I remember the last time i was on a ward they did this interview/screening thing that seemed to last forever before letting me out. It was a bit annoying as my room had already been passed on to someone else so i had to sit around and wait with all my stuff….

one_step_closer 14-04-2022 05:01 PM

Is everything sorted yet Beckie? The last things to do before getting home can be really frustrating when you just want to be at home.

Thanks Beckie and Kat. Your kind words help. I'm mostly managing.

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 05:23 PM

Luckily i still have my room!
So I'm watching a film.
I think I'm just waiting for T to come off his break (rude, my going home is waaaay more important than his break! :p ) And he's taking me.
Fingers crossed there will be no more complications!

We're here if you need us lindsay! Always! <3

nonperson 14-04-2022 06:56 PM

Evening all.

Lindsay <3

Are you home yet, Beckie?!

Zurg 14-04-2022 07:05 PM

Hi NP :-)

I hope they've let you out to enjoy total freedom by now Beckie!!!

Lindsay, you're always welcome to talk about stuff that's troubling you!!! Xx

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 07:25 PM

I am on the way home! Finally!

Hey np!

nonperson 14-04-2022 07:26 PM

Wooohoo =D

Cacoethes 14-04-2022 08:04 PM

The support worker said this is the nicest house they've ever dropped a patient at! Very proud of my little house!

nonperson 15-04-2022 09:48 AM


Where is everyone? o.o

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 10:14 AM

Hi! How are you? I tried to post earlier but was spasming too much!

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 10:26 AM

I've just been to asda!

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 10:34 AM

For tastey things?

nonperson 15-04-2022 10:41 AM

Hey Tamo. Aw, that sucks. Is it worse some days than others?

I'm alright, dunno what to do with myself today.

I bet Asda has missed you, Beckie.

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 10:45 AM

Yes it varies. Usually the day after lorazepam it's much better but not today! You have no idea how long this took to write lol

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 10:51 AM

I'm a bit skint at the moment but i did get sandwich stuff which should last me a while! And i already had plenty of soup!

Are you off for the long weekend np?

I think asda has missed me! Lol!

That sucks tamo

nonperson 15-04-2022 10:54 AM

Oh dear. =( I can't remember, were you getting the cause and solution looked into?

I feel a bit guilty for asking so many questions. Don't answer if it's too problematic to type out answers! Maybe you need like a voice thing that types it out for you, is that a thing? o.O

nonperson 15-04-2022 10:55 AM

Slow post.

Yup, I'm off for four days =D

I might do a shop tonight for weekend stuff.

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 10:57 AM

I had that on my laptop at uni, I probably can get it on my phone but I don't know how.
That was much easier!

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 10:59 AM

Woohoo! 4 days off!
That would be good. Make sure to get lots of treats!

I think you can get it on phones but i don't know how to do it either! Maybe Google it?

nonperson 15-04-2022 11:39 AM

Google says there are loads of apps.

There are apps for everything nowadays.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 11:43 AM

There really is!!!
What would we do without smartphones?!

nonperson 15-04-2022 12:04 PM

We'd have to carry giant PCs around with us, or talk to people face to face and learn things through asking people, not Google... and be uncontactable for most of the time. =D

I once famously said that I didn't need a smartphone. How wrong I was.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 12:06 PM

And in hospital I'd probably just sit there staring at the wall! Or worse, go in the lounge with OTHER PEOPLE!!!

Oh how naive!!!

nonperson 15-04-2022 12:12 PM

Smartphones are a blessing and a curse at the same time.

I'm thinking of getting a new one.

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 12:18 PM

We had to force my brother to get a smart phone, I think be still thinks it's a waste of money.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 12:22 PM

That is true!

Which one do you think you'll get np?

My neighbour won't get a phone. She hates them!

one_step_closer 15-04-2022 12:32 PM

Afternoon everyone.

You've all been busy chatting away.

Smartphones are good. If I just had an ancient basic phone I'd cry. I remember my first ancient phone predicted your future for the day by showing a number of hearts under a category if you put your dob and todays date in.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 12:53 PM

Hey lindsay!

That sounds pretty cool actually!
I do miss the indestructibility of the old phones!
And snake was pretty cool! Lol
But yeah. Smart phones ftw!

tamobhuuta 15-04-2022 01:06 PM

That's cool osc

one_step_closer 15-04-2022 03:20 PM

I played space invaders? on my friends phone and bet her high score by just holding down the shooting button and constantly moving up and down. Cheat!

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 03:29 PM

Haha! Don't word hard, work smart :p

nonperson 15-04-2022 04:41 PM

Ah snake. Yeah I remember throwing my old Nokia on the floor so many times and picking up a million pieces and popping it all back together again.

In comparison I threw my current phone on the floor not long after getting it and smashed the screen.

Was thinking about the new Samsung Galaxy S22. They all seem to be getting bigger and bigger though and this one is exactly the same size as my current one.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 04:49 PM

Yep! Things were built to last back in our day!

I have an S21+ and really like it!

one_step_closer 15-04-2022 05:01 PM

I've had my iPhone 7 for a long time. They're now on iPhone 13 I think.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 05:02 PM

Not a clue about iphones but that sounds about right!
Jasmine is always going on about wanting the latest iphone. She's not even old enough for a phone yet!!

one_step_closer 15-04-2022 05:05 PM

When do you think you'll give in and get her a phone? I rarely have the most recent iPhone. When I picked the one I had now it was with the highest space to save things (whatever you call that) so it would last me longer and it has.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 05:15 PM

Like with me and my siblings, she'll get one when she goes to secondary school!
Which i do agree with!
But she also has to wait until she's 11 to get her ears pierced. I think she's old enough to have them done now and understand how to keep them clean etc. But i dare not ask my mum if i can take her to get them done! She'll definitely say no!

That's good it still does what you need it to!
Tbh my old phone did too but i like shiny new things! :tongue2:

one_step_closer 15-04-2022 05:24 PM

That sounds sensible about having a phone. Maybe your Mum would ok piercings if you asked. Is she anti piercing or just not at this age?

I do like shiny things too. I was going to buy the latest iPhone when the money matters people were telling me to buy lots of things so I wouldn't need to come off my benefits but that's so bad.

Cacoethes 15-04-2022 05:29 PM

It's just the age i think. I'll ask if i can take her for her 10th birthday. That's close enough to 11!
I mostly just want to make sure she doesn't get pierced with a gun!

Why is it bad?
