I'm ok but still feeling unwell. I think you're allowed paracetamol Zurg!

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 11:29 AM

You should take paracetamol zurg!
Don't suffer!

Sorry to hear that tamo! Hope you feel better soon

I am going to try and get out to morrisons today
I don't need anything but it's just somewhere to go
There is nothing around here!
And I'm watching a series on Netflix. It's danish but I've got English sound on because i don't have the concentration for subtitles!

one_step_closer 09-04-2022 02:08 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you manage to get out today Beckie, it's a step in getting used to being out so you can cope at home.

You can have Paracetamol if you need it Kat, don't be suffering. Does your doctor know about your pains if they are normal for you?

I'm sorry you're feeling unwell Tamo. I hope the symptoms ease off soon.

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 03:16 PM

Thanks lindsay!
Took me an hour and a half to get my purse out of the safe because about 3 people kicked off at once!
But i am out! Got 15 mins left so I'm just chilling outside.

How are you?

one_step_closer 09-04-2022 04:57 PM

That sounds annoying, I'm glad you got out eventually. How did it go?

I just got a letter from the ESA people about more info they need but I don't understand it so will have to phone them on Monday. I just need this whole thing to be over.

I also want some chocolate but I have none because I'm trying to snack less.

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 04:59 PM

It was good thanks!
Better than yesterday

That does sound incredibly stressful. I hope they can help

I still want salt and vinegar crisps. But i forgot to get some :(

one_step_closer 09-04-2022 05:01 PM

That's good to hear. It's a shame you didn't get crisps though! I like salt and vinegar crisps but find they eventually make my mouth feel like it has burns in it.

Cacoethes 09-04-2022 05:17 PM

Yeah they do!
Salt and vinegar rice cakes are the worst for that!

Zurg 09-04-2022 06:10 PM

I didn't have any paracetamol left. But i just went to the grocery shop and Got some. Yeah, the gp knows Lindsay. He's trying to help me find out if it's ibs. It has been going on for quite some years and i've tried a fair few over the counter meds but the last year it has become unbearable in terms of how much it impacts my every day life so i finally Got around to making an appointment. Did some tests that show some infection in the guts but it's probably going to be a while yet befor anything definite is figured out…. The pain is pretty much constant so i've kind of just gotten used to keep going and do whatever needs to be done in spite of it.

Glad you had a nice trip to the shop Beckie. Shame about the crisps. Make a list for next time!!!!
I hope you are on the mend soon Tamo!!!

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 10:16 AM

That sounds awful zurg!
I hope the paracetamol helps

I shall!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 10-04-2022 10:25 AM

Thanks for the good messages.
I still have a little covid but feel generally OK. Hopefully I haven't passed it on to my family.

How are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 10:46 AM

I'm ok thanks.
Felt dreadful last night, probably because of the covid booster on Friday. But better now!

Do you have any plans for today?
I'm doing some washing and i think that's about it!

tamobhuuta 10-04-2022 11:11 AM

I'm glad you are feeling better. I felt awful after my first jab.

I have no proper plans but I want to watch more Once upon a time. This is the third time I've watched it!

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 11:19 AM

My first i felt awful! Couldn't move without being sick!
The second was totally fine, no symptoms whatsoever!
I think this one is messing with my mood and irritability though! Apparently that's a thing

It is a great series tbh!

tamobhuuta 10-04-2022 11:22 AM

I've not heard of that happening, sounds annoying but hopefully it will pass quickly.

tamobhuuta 10-04-2022 11:28 AM

Of course it's annoying, it's irritation!

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 11:32 AM

Neither had i!
But my mood has been great for the past few weeks and i became very moody and irritable later Friday evening on the day i had the jab!
I looked online and tons of other people have had the same experience! Apparently it does go away after a while though!

one_step_closer 10-04-2022 02:47 PM

You're all poor souls, am I the only physically healthy person on here right now?! Sends get well wishes to whoever needs them.

not_so_insig 10-04-2022 03:14 PM

I am ok physically too Lindsay mentally I am not so great.

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 03:17 PM

Thanks lindsay!

I have just had the emotional blow of having too many crisps for my salsa. I could have bought more salsa but then I'd have too much salsa and not enough crisps!

tamobhuuta 10-04-2022 04:21 PM

That's a conundrum.

one_step_closer 10-04-2022 04:49 PM

Salsa is eww. You should have normal crisps that don't need salsa.

I hope you feel better soon Dawn.

Zurg 10-04-2022 06:16 PM

I'm just having some crisps with crisps :P

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 06:53 PM

I love salsa!

Lol zurg!
What kind of crisps??

Zurg 10-04-2022 08:04 PM

It was barbecu flavour Beckie. Unfortunately, my stomach strongly disagreed that this was a good idea so now i've gone to bed. I seriously can't be arsed to be trolled by my body anymore today!!!!

Cacoethes 10-04-2022 08:17 PM

Nice! But not so nice about the stomach issues!
I hope bed helps!

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 08:30 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 11-04-2022 10:43 AM

Morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 10:47 AM

Morning tamo!
I'm ok thanks! Just hoping my sodium levels come back ok today! Or at least above 125! (They are meant to be at least 135) but if they're above 125 then i can probably stay out of A&E!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 11-04-2022 11:19 AM

I hope you don't have to go to a&e.i am ok but still testing positive for covid.

Do you have anything else exciting going on today?

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 11:30 AM

Thanks!
Oh no that's not good! How many days has it been now?

Nope! I was considering going to morrisons but it's so windy!

one_step_closer 11-04-2022 12:40 PM

Has no one worked out what's going on with your sodium levels yet Beckie? You're a mystery. How far away is Morrisons?

Are you feeling any better than when your COVID first started, Tamo? I really hope it passes soon.

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 02:02 PM

Nope! Everyone is confused!
They think something might be contributing but they aren't sure!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 11-04-2022 02:17 PM

Have you been out today?

I've been trying to sort bank statements and stuff most of the day. Think I've finished and I hope the ESA people don't need anything more from me. I'm just trying to wind down now.

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 02:20 PM

Only on the fresh air breaks.
I was thinking about going to morrisons but it's pretty windy and chilly outside!

Fingers crossed!
Sounds so stressful

one_step_closer 11-04-2022 02:22 PM

Do you not have anything to keep you warm?

It is very stressful. I can't get some of the things that they're asking for so I don't know what happens now.

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 02:30 PM

I only have my hoodie.

If you can't get them then that's not your fault!

one_step_closer 11-04-2022 04:43 PM

Do you even own a jacket/coat/I don't know if they mean the same thing? You're always just wearing hoodies.

Cacoethes 11-04-2022 05:02 PM

I do have a coat! I just don't like wearing coats!

Cacoethes 12-04-2022 09:04 AM

Morning everyone!

Zurg 12-04-2022 10:18 AM

Morning Beckie.

How are you today??

tamobhuuta 12-04-2022 10:29 AM

Hi peoples. How are you?

Zurg 12-04-2022 10:35 AM

Hi Tamo :-)

I'm tired but otherwise okay. I was taken off my aripiprazole a couple of weeks ago and i'm having terribly restless legs and arms because of withdrawals. It keeps me awake at night so i'm a bit bummed out these days…

How are you??

tamobhuuta 12-04-2022 10:39 AM

Will the side effects wear off?

I am ok. But I've got a sore throat so I'm not sure what to have for breakfast.

Cacoethes 12-04-2022 12:12 PM

I'm good thank you!
Just been to morrisons to get salt and vinegar crisps and honey roasted cashews!!

That sounds horrible zurg
Restless legs are torture

Porridge tamo?

We're nearly at 5000 pages of this thread!!!

tamobhuuta 12-04-2022 12:52 PM

I had a pancake in the end. I hope you enjoy your tastey things.

Zurg 12-04-2022 01:11 PM

I hope they'll wear off eventually but i'm aware it might take quite a while. I've been on anti psychotic medication for almost 20 years non stop until a doctor realised i might never have been psychotic in the first place…. Which is a pretty bitter pill to swallow but hey, better late than never ;-)

It's going to take time to adjust for my mind and body. Some days are okay and others are really ****ing terrible but i never expected it to be any different so…

Yay for pancakes and snacks!!!!

Cacoethes 12-04-2022 01:32 PM

Hmmm pancake

That's a long time zurg!
Can't imagine how annoying that is!
I hope you feel better soon

Zurg 12-04-2022 01:55 PM

I'm having a cheeky piece of cake. Nothing sets the world straight like a piece of cake!!!

not_so_insig 12-04-2022 01:58 PM

I am waiting for my tesco shopping order. 3 substitutions but they're acceptable.
