I don't believe MH professionals are busier than GPs but they're awful at phone calls.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 03:01 PM

Psychiatrists literally just sit there and judge people and prescribe meds.
What could they possibly be doing that doesn't allow them time to make a 5 minute phone call that will consist of
'How are you?'
'I'm ok'
'Great, you can be discharged now'

tamobhuuta 18-09-2020 03:53 PM

Sounds like a psych.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 03:55 PM

I've just had a call from the crisis team. They are going to call and find out what's going on then phone me back.

tamobhuuta 18-09-2020 03:59 PM

I hope they don't leave you hanging too much longer.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 04:03 PM

They probably will tbh.
It's 4pm so the consultant will either be going home or getting ready to go home
I just want to be discharged dammit!

not_so_insig 18-09-2020 04:05 PM

Garden Rescue right now is from your town Beckie. A woman called Maureen is on it who used to live in Spain. Probably don't know her Beckie.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 04:16 PM

Ooo that's interesting Dawn!
No I don't know her. Always nice to get some publicity for our little town

Thanks whispershadow

nonperson 18-09-2020 05:23 PM

It's the weeeeeekend. =D

tamobhuuta 18-09-2020 05:25 PM

Hi np :)

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 05:27 PM

It is indeed np!

nonperson 18-09-2020 05:29 PM

Evening Beckie and Tamo. =)

I have come into possession of a swede which I don't really know what to do with.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 05:49 PM

Ooo I love swede
It's a nightmare to chop though!

nonperson 18-09-2020 06:15 PM

That is not what I wanted to hear, Beckie! XD

I haven't had swede possibly since I was a child... so I don't know if I like it or not. But I'm thinking swede chips in the oven might be the way to go. Or mash.

not_so_insig 18-09-2020 06:15 PM

Singing swede then it's easy to chop.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 06:21 PM

Swede mash is lush

nonperson 18-09-2020 06:22 PM

Same method for making pumpkin easy to chop.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 06:23 PM

i don't think I've ever cooked with pumpkin

nonperson 18-09-2020 06:25 PM

Pumpkin soup is the best. Sweet and spicy. =)

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 06:38 PM

I can't deal with any kind of spicy!
Accidentally bit into a peppercorn the other day and it was horrific!

tamobhuuta 18-09-2020 07:01 PM

I don't like swede but pumpkin is nice. Pumpkin pie :)

nonperson 18-09-2020 07:05 PM

Biting into a peppercorn is truly awful!

I haven't had pumpkin pie before. =o

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 07:18 PM

Pumpkin pie is amazing

It really is np! Most unpleasant

nonperson 18-09-2020 07:21 PM

Equally as bad as biting into a whole cardamom in takeaway pilau rice. Yuck!

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 07:43 PM

Omg yes!!!
That is awful

not_so_insig 18-09-2020 08:15 PM

Next month is Halloween.

nonperson 18-09-2020 08:17 PM

Yes it is.

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 08:22 PM

Next month is also my birthday. And my holiday

nonperson 18-09-2020 08:50 PM

Screw halloween, birthday and holiday is exciting. =)

Cacoethes 18-09-2020 08:59 PM

Very exciting!
Although being another year older sucks. I'll be 29! A year away from 30!

not_so_insig 19-09-2020 12:29 AM

Age 30 is when I last SIed so it wasn't bad being 30 for me so there's hope Beckie. Next year I will be the big 4-0!

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 09:08 AM

I'm 30 in October, really looking forward to it. I'm starting to feel like a grown up.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 09:36 AM

Looks like I'm the only one who's dreading being 30!

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 10:22 AM

I'm sure it won't be that bad :)

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 10:26 AM

That's what depot nurse guy said.
He said being 30 is just the same as being 29 and nothing changes.
I just don't feel like I've accomplished anything and I should have done by now

nonperson 19-09-2020 10:33 AM

I wasn't too keen on turning 30 either, Beckie. But that has been and gone now and you know what your depot nurse guy is right, it is just a number and you don't really feel any different.

30 is still young and there's plenty of time to achieve things!

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 10:38 AM

Thanks np :)

I'm hoping to go back to my health sciences degree with the OU. I just need to make a phone call about it but phone calls = scary!

What are you guys up to today?
I'm off to see Jasmine. And my brother is going too so I'll get a lift!

nonperson 19-09-2020 10:43 AM

But scary = worth it. ;-)

No plans today. Bit of laundry, food shop later, might try to do some stuff in the garden.

Ah that'll be a nice day then and also good you'll get a lift. =)

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 10:45 AM

My big sister is coming round.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 10:49 AM

Very true np!

Sounds like a nice chilled day

Hope you have a nice time tamo

nonperson 19-09-2020 10:58 AM

Also I really need to clean the kitchen and do some hoovering... Forgot about that somehow. >.>

Will you be doing anything particular with Jasmine?

Tamo, that sounds lovely. =)

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 11:03 AM

Fun times!

Nothing planned. I think the battle will be getting her off Roblox! She's addicted to that bloody game.

not_so_insig 19-09-2020 11:07 AM

I have received a free sample of shower gel in the post today. Wasn't expecting it. Guess that means I have to have a shower now but you know effort.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 11:09 AM

My boiler appears to have packed in so I only get hot water for about a minute before it turns freezing cold
Showering has been most unpleasant lately!

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 11:35 AM

Showering is soooo much effort.

not_so_insig 19-09-2020 01:53 PM

I had a shower with my new shower gel. It didn't smell of anything and it was the same colour as my toothpaste. Let's hope I don't get the two mixed up.

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 01:57 PM

That's a shame

tamobhuuta 19-09-2020 06:43 PM

L and my sister went to buy coffee capsules and they brought me back a Costa. Good times.

Cacoethes 19-09-2020 07:33 PM

I've just got back
We had a barbecue!
