Cacoethes 28-11-2020 09:43 PM

Sounds like a productive day np!

I need to start Christmas shopping. But no one knows what they want!!

nonperson 28-11-2020 09:45 PM

I'm refusing to do presents this year and am donating to charity instead.

Edit: except for some people/children because I know how to please them.

tamobhuuta 28-11-2020 10:04 PM

That's a nice idea np.

I love Christmas films and I have started my shopping.

nonperson 28-11-2020 10:06 PM

I just find the whole season a huge palaver... Bah humbug.

It's nice to hear when people enjoy it though. =)

Cacoethes 29-11-2020 11:26 AM

Morning everyone
I feel groggy
And we only have decaf coffee :plain:

tamobhuuta 29-11-2020 12:05 PM

Oh no Cacoethes, that sucks. Maybe tell yourself it's proper coffee?

Cacoethes 29-11-2020 12:27 PM

I’ve been trying to. Luckily I also have coke so not completely caffeine-less!

one_step_closer 29-11-2020 12:38 PM

Pepsi? I will make you a fan of it!

Cacoethes 29-11-2020 01:09 PM

I have a tiny bit of coke zero
And 2 bottles of Pepsi max. Which tbh is growing on me but I still prefer coke zero!

one_step_closer 29-11-2020 02:07 PM

Savour your tiny bit of Coke Zero!

How are you doing today?

Cacoethes 29-11-2020 02:13 PM

It's gone now :p

Not great
Being on 1:1 is annoying as fck

How are you?

one_step_closer 29-11-2020 03:54 PM

That sucks. Poor you.

I'm not sure how I am.

tamobhuuta 29-11-2020 04:26 PM

Things sound difficult, I hope they improve.

Cacoethes 29-11-2020 06:59 PM

I've just had a 2 hour nap
I can NEVER sleep during the day, even with prn so I don't know why this prn knocked me out so much!

one_step_closer 30-11-2020 12:08 PM

I'm glad you got some sleep Beckie. Did you managed to sleep at night too?

How is everyone today?

Cacoethes 30-11-2020 12:40 PM

Yes I did thanks

I'm not great. The doctor refused to take me off 1:1 and now my 1:1 is moaning because no one is available to take over from her because they are seriously short staffed.

How are you?

one_step_closer 30-11-2020 04:05 PM

Did the doctor say what you need to do to be taken off 1:1? I'm glad you're on 1:1 though if it keeps you safe.

I'm sad and anxious.

Where is everyone today?

Cacoethes 30-11-2020 04:19 PM

Not really
They are going to review it tomorrow

Anything I can do to help Lindsay?

I know! Been really quiet in here today

nonperson 30-11-2020 04:25 PM

*makes noise*

Cacoethes 30-11-2020 05:56 PM

Hi np!
How are you doing?

tamobhuuta 30-11-2020 05:58 PM

Hi guys :)

not_so_insig 30-11-2020 06:02 PM

Hello all

nonperson 30-11-2020 06:20 PM

Hey everyone. =)

I'm a bit headachey. =(

Cacoethes 30-11-2020 06:35 PM

Hi everyone

Ah headaches suck

tamobhuuta 01-12-2020 11:39 AM

And I am first on the thread!

one_step_closer 01-12-2020 12:19 PM

Morning Tamo, how are you?

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 12:28 PM

Morning guys
How are you both?

tamobhuuta 01-12-2020 12:58 PM

I'm ok thanks, bit anxious but manageable. How are you both?

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 01:09 PM

Glad it's manageable tamo

I'm ok
Hoping to get off 1:1 today. Got to wait for the doctor to review it

tamobhuuta 01-12-2020 02:58 PM

Do you think you will be safe off 1:1?

one_step_closer 01-12-2020 03:01 PM

Look after yourself Tamo, I'm glad things are manageable.

I hope you want off 1:1 because you don't need it Beckie, not that you have plans to be unsafe. You have to be honest and look after yourself.

I'm waiting for various emotions to bombard me throughout the day. I managed to not be forced to go to yoga which is good and I phoned the vet. Now to hope I can get a taxi at that time tomorrow because it's when the schools finish.

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 03:03 PM

I'm off 1:1 :-D
Honestly it's not for good reasons but that isn't for this thread!

I hope it's not too bad for you today lindsay

one_step_closer 01-12-2020 03:05 PM

Please do your best to stay safe Beckie or you'll just be back on 1:1.

Are you watching anything today?

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 03:11 PM

They hate putting people on 1:1 here so I think they won't do it again.

I'm still watching criminal minds!

What are you up to today?

one_step_closer 01-12-2020 04:37 PM

Just my usual, trying to keep myself occupied.

Are there loads of seasons of criminal minds?

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 04:39 PM

Fair enough
Hope you manage to stay occupied

13 seasons I think

tamobhuuta 01-12-2020 07:09 PM

I'm watching TV, having done all my distractions and therapy skills.

Cacoethes 01-12-2020 09:21 PM

How are you feeling tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 11:10 AM

I took PRN

Good morning one and all.

one_step_closer 02-12-2020 12:02 PM

Morning everyone.

Feeling any better today Tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 12:25 PM

Ok but the anxiety is returning. How are you?

Cacoethes 02-12-2020 02:50 PM

How is everyone this afternoon?

one_step_closer 02-12-2020 02:56 PM

Keep doing the things that help, Tamo. You're really good with using your skills and distractions etc.

Hey Beckie. How are you?

I'm taking one of my cats to the vet this afternoon and I'm hoping it'll be easy enough to get a taxi because it's at the time when the high school comes out, if schools are even on.

Cacoethes 02-12-2020 04:05 PM

I'll live

Fingers crossed for you lindsay

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 06:22 PM

I watched another cheesey Christmas film, I think it helped.

one_step_closer 02-12-2020 07:17 PM

Long wait in the rain for a taxi home. But we're back and Crookshanks is snoozing on my lap.

What film did you watch Tamo?

tamobhuuta 02-12-2020 07:25 PM

Amazing Christmas Romance.

one_step_closer 03-12-2020 11:12 AM

Morning everyone, it's snowing here!

How are you all?

Cacoethes 03-12-2020 11:30 AM

Morning lindsay
It rained here overnight but that's it here

I'm ok. Tired but can't get back to sleep annoyingly.
I hate it when they wake me up for meds!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 03-12-2020 11:44 AM

No snow for us. I'm just having breakfast. No special plans for the day. Maybe today will be the day I hear from my CPN!
