I had a email from a charity whose mh forum I am registered with. It was a survey. I put that I was put off using their service because it required a phone number upon registering and I was worried that if I were having a mh crisis the police would be called. Nobody here has my phone number and I am glad that the police aren't called each time someone says that they are suicidal.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 04:38 PM

Fair enough

chinahorse 11-01-2018 04:59 PM

I second the fair enough.

Hope you're enjoying watching friends beckie.

Can't get through to the cmht or shelter. Just had the police in my building because they've had reports of drug dealing. Nothing is going right. And now I can't leave the house because I've obviously been crying.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 05:01 PM

Sorry to hear that Lillie :(
Are the phones just engaged or are you not going to be able to get through at all?
Thats really not very good of them

chinahorse 11-01-2018 05:11 PM

Both shelter and the citizens advice have no one available and then the line cuts off so there no queueing system or anything. How am I supposed to get help when they don't let me?!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 05:19 PM

Thats frustrating
I don't understand why these places don't have queuing systems. It would be so much easier
Keep trying, you'll get through eventually

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:36 PM

That sounds really frustrating Lillie.

I'm just watching some TV and trying to persuade my dog not to lick/step on my laptop :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:49 PM

Hey Buttons
Sounds like fun :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:54 PM

Ha ha not so much plus every time I push her off the laptop she gives me the big eyed WHY CAN'T I DESTROY YOUR LAPTOP MUM.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:55 PM

Your poor laptop doesn't have it easy does it?!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:57 PM

No between me and Lady I'm surprised it's alive at all and hasn't hatched an escape mission :P Thank frick for insurance!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:03 PM

My laptops seem to just die for no reason.

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:05 PM

Or do you spill things on it....

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:07 PM

Nope they just die!
My wii and xbox 360 suffered the same fate!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:11 PM

Sounds suspiciously like multiple spillages....

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:15 PM

It really isnt!
Illusive brother has a similar effect on electronics.
There is some explanation for it and apparently copper bracelets help but can't remember what it is!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:22 PM

Ha ha I don't need a brother my dog is plenty. I've heard magnets help as well.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:28 PM

Yes I have heard that!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:38 PM

A couple of months ago I went to my old college tutor's event Magnitex or something (magnet related jewlellery) and it was really fun. Although even in a wheelchair you can never get away with saying 'wait I'll just swivel' :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:40 PM

That does sounds cool

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:42 PM

It was and a nice reminder of my A level days :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:45 PM

Awww :)

I've got fit beatz tonight.
Hopefully it will take my mind off things!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:50 PM

Hope it helps Beckie. Lucky I noticed my typing as auto correct said hoe possibly something I don't want to say :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:57 PM

Ahahah! Fail :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 08:00 PM

As per usual :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 08:04 PM

Well I didn't want to point it out...... :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 08:06 PM

You wonderful weirdo :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 08:09 PM

Thats me!! :-D

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:24 PM


Cacoethes 11-01-2018 08:26 PM

Hi aubergine!
How was work?

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:27 PM

Busy! Winter is an interesting time in the NHS.

I've now got sweet chilli chicken in the oven though. :D

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:27 PM

Hello all.

Hope everyone is well.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:30 PM

Hey Lorraine! How's it going?

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:32 PM

Hey Aubergine. I’m ok, how are you? I hope you enjoy your dinner.

I’ve napped most of the day, but I’m up and in my living room. Going to clean my kitchen soon.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:43 PM

I'm glad you're OK. Napping is nice. Well done for sitting in your living room. Kitchen cleaning sounds like a good plan!

I'm tired! Busy day. Dinner is smelling good!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:49 PM

You deserve a nice dinner after your busy day.

I’m going to put music on while I tidy. That always helps.

Buttons. 11-01-2018 09:10 PM

Hope your dinner is nice Aubergine :)

I find similar re. music Lorraine.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:15 PM

I just did a quick 20 minute tidy up. Back on my rocking chair and watching a program about big cats. Tigers, etc. My Molly’s cousins.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 09:17 PM

Dinner was nice. :) Lidl is now my favourite supermarket.

I always listen to music when I'm cleaning too, Lorraine. It really does make it much easier!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:18 PM

Glad you enjoyed your dinner.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 09:19 PM

Programme sounds interesting. I wonder if Molly is watching?!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:21 PM

Molly is in my sister’s flat fast asleep. It would be funny if she did watch it.
I always call her my little panther, so I hope they show panthers on this program.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 09:24 PM

Molly is the same colour as a panther! That's a cute nickname. :) Hopefully they will have panthers on the TV! :)

I have chocolate. :D

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:25 PM

Yay chocolate. Yum!

Aubergine 11-01-2018 09:32 PM

Have you got some nice chocolate to munch on tonight? I have Galaxy!

not_so_insig 11-01-2018 09:47 PM

I wish I could see the program about big cats but crappy bbc Wales has put some regional crap on instead. The same goes for next week. Guess I will have to wait until Sunday.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 09:57 PM

I am jealous of the chocolate!

Aubergine 11-01-2018 10:04 PM


I got into bed. I am so rock and roll.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 10:09 PM

I do have chocolate from Christmas, but I’m trying to save it for treat days.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 10:09 PM

Are you off to sleep Aubergine? Hope you sleep well.
