Morning, how are you?

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 08:45 AM

Morning all. My back hurts but I am ok otherwise.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 08:50 AM

Sorry your back hurts :( do you have any plans for today?

I have been up since 6am and it's not been a good start.

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 08:56 AM

Yes I am on holiday tamobhuuta so we are off to see a pier. I dont know of any other plans other than going to Sainsbury's. I have slight blurred vision so forgive any typos.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 08:59 AM

That sounds fun. The pier bit. Not the Sainsbury's bit!

not_so_insig 26-09-2022 09:05 AM

Yes I am definitely going on a pier this holiday.

I am being paid the dwp pip cost of living payment tomorrow so if anyone is on pip it might land in your bank account tomorrow. It's marked as dwp col in case people are wondering why they're suddenly 150 better off.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 09:07 AM

I shall look forward to that.

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 09:50 AM

Hey guys

I'm ok thanks.
Had a nurse appointment this morning.
Blood pressure, bloods and weight.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 10:08 AM

Everything OK?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 10:37 AM

Blood pressure was high apparently.
Hopefully won't have to wait too long for bloods.
I think it's just routine meds related checks.
And also they couldn't check electrolytes last time because the lab messed up the samples.

I do have a massive headache though! Paracetamol didn't work!

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 10:41 AM

Would other painkillers help? Ibuprofen?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 10:55 AM

Didn't think of that!

one_step_closer 26-09-2022 02:40 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope you enjoy your holiday, Dawn. I hope your sore back passes and doesn't get in the way of you having a good time.

Are things getting any better, Tamo? I'm sorry things got off to a bad start today. It doesn't mean the whole day has to be bad though.

I see you have figured out the cause of your headache, Beckie! Are you feeling better now?

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 02:54 PM

Hey lindsay!

Yes i have!
The headache has gone! Still feeling a little dazed but I've just put some cauliflower cheese bakes in the oven which will hopefully help!

How are you doing?

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 04:24 PM

I hope you enjoy your bake Cacoethes.

How are you osc?

one_step_closer 26-09-2022 04:55 PM

I hope that helps, Beckie. But if it doesn't you'll have eaten something tasty so that's a win. I've just had super noodles.

I'm feeling a bit mentally wobbly but will be ok.

tamobhuuta 26-09-2022 04:59 PM

*hugs* if wanted

Cacoethes 26-09-2022 05:14 PM

Thanks tamo!

I feel a bit sick after eating but it was tasty!
I haven't had super noodles in ages! What flavour?

Sorry you're not feeling great lindsay

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 05:11 AM

Morning everyone!

not_so_insig 27-09-2022 08:27 AM

Morning all. I slept better last night but I am still in pain.

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 10:00 AM

I slept terribly

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 10:10 AM

Sorry to hear that. I slept better. My dad's visiting in a minute, and my sister too, I think. What are you two up to?

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 10:13 AM


That sounds nice. I hope you enjoy your visit!

I'm at hospital for my echocardiogram.
Big bang theory is on the tv!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 01:14 PM

How was the ecg?

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 01:26 PM

It was an echo, not ecg.
It was fine thanks! Always a bit awkward but the lady was nice.

How are you?

one_step_closer 27-09-2022 03:53 PM

I'm glad your echo went ok, Beckie. It's embarrassing getting your boobs out! I just pretend it's not happening. What else have you been up to?

I hope you enjoyed your visit, Tamo.

How is your pain, Dawn.

I was at the gym group. Supposed to be going for an informal walk tomorrow with a couple of people but they both can't come this week so I'm just going to go to Tesco.

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 04:14 PM

I think I've been naked in front of health professionals so much over the years that I'm not too bothered about it anymore! Especially since giving birth. All dignity was lost after that! XD

Haven't really been up to much. Got invited for my seasonal covid jab so having that tomorrow. About to go to asda now.

Well done for going to the gym group lindsay!
That's a shame about the walk

one_step_closer 27-09-2022 04:44 PM

Another covid jab! Have fun in Asda!

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 06:05 PM

Yep! Hoping i won't get any side effects. I only did with the first one tbh so i should be fine!

Thank you!
I got grapes!

tamobhuuta 27-09-2022 07:24 PM

L gave me grapes yesterday, they were nommy. My visits were good thanks, and I saw the psych, which wasn't as fun. I've also had blood tests. It's been jam packed!

Cacoethes 27-09-2022 08:44 PM

I love grapes!
I don't get them a lot though because they are expensive.
Glad your visits were good!
Psychs are very rarely fun tbh.

I had blood tests yesterday. I have double checked what the nurse took the blood for but only the full blood count result has come back? They were also meant to test for electrolytes and something else. Either they've messed it up again, the results are taking longer or the nurse submitted the wrong bloods. Idk.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 08:51 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 10:36 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 10:46 AM

Still feeling ill.
It's not covid though. I tested twice, just to be sure!
Think I'm just run down. Or a seasonal thing like a cold.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 11:06 AM

I'm ok. I've got my dad, godmother and L visiting me so I will be busy.
I hope you feel better soon x

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 11:11 AM

You're so lucky to have so many visits!
When I'm in hospital, no one visits because it's too far away.
I hope you have a nice visit!

Thank you x

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 12:03 PM

I'm very lucky :)

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 12:06 PM

I'm glad you have lots of visits. I think it really helps :)

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 12:11 PM

It reminds me I've got a real life to go back to and people who love me.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 12:12 PM

It's definitely always good to be reminded of that
Hospital sometimes feels very isolating.
I usually end up referring to the outside world as 'real life'

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 01:01 PM

Are you up to anything this afternoon?

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 02:08 PM

Not really.
Just been to asda. Bumped into my neighbour both on the way there and on the way back! (She has arthritis so walks very slowly)
I have an amazon delivery coming too. Finally i will have my coffee!
Oh and also my 4th covid jab. The seasonal booster. Might pop into work after that seeing as it's next door!

How about you? Do they do groups in your hospital?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 03:40 PM

The only activity is colouring. I'm going to watch doctors.

one_step_closer 28-09-2022 04:36 PM

Hi everyone. I hope you're all looking after yourselves.

Would you be allowed the jab if you're not feeling well, Beckie?

It's annoying when hospital doesn't have things on to keep you occupied. I hope you enjoy(ed) your visit and watching Doctors, Tamo.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 05:21 PM

I'm not a fan of colouring really

Hey lindsay

I did tell them i wasn't feeling too great but i said I'd tested negative for covid twice so they said it's ok.
Popped into work afterwards for a coffee as it's just next door. Had a nice chat with some colleagues. I actually can't wait to go back on Monday!

How are you doing lindsay?

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 06:05 PM

I enjoyed doctors :) and had a good visit with L. Now I'm filling time until my tablet's charged and I can go to bed.

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 06:09 PM

That's good :)

I have plant based spaghetti bolognase for dinner!

tamobhuuta 28-09-2022 07:11 PM

Ooo tastey!

Cacoethes 28-09-2022 09:10 PM

It was very nice! I think i preferred it to a meat spaghetti bolognase!

tamobhuuta 29-09-2022 10:34 AM

Good morning. Am I first here?
