Definitely give it a go!

I'm trying to be ok, had a nice bath and a plan to keep busy tomorrow (there's only 3 compulsory things). Pissed off at the consultant though.

Nice bath sounds good sorry consultant being a prat though.

Rebecca Aldi and lidl are generally epic just cheaper!

Ok that should be a sectionable offence :p

Morning guys. :) how are we all?

Hope you managed some sleep katy!

Gargh sleep is being such a nightmare for me.

Buttons. 11-07-2017 07:02 AM

Thank you had ish sleep :).

With regards your own sleep have you ever tried melatonin? It's natural hormone and was main thing helped me sleep.

chinahorse 11-07-2017 07:12 AM

Well I suppose ish is better than none?

I'll ask to see the dr here. The gp not the idiot consultant who told me I was abusing codeine and took it off my chart. I've used it 4 times in 2 months. She said it's too strong. I'm not the only one on opiates here. *grumble*

Did melatonin help you fall asleep or stay asleep?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 10:12 AM

Morning guys

That doctor sounds like a real **** Lillie. Hope the GP can be more helpful.

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 11:05 AM

Good morning everyone!

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 11:18 AM

Hi Rebecca!
How are you?

Ive got a driving lesson in 10 mins

Eska 11-07-2017 11:19 AM

Morning Rebecca! How are you?

chinahorse 11-07-2017 11:40 AM

Morning again guys :)

Hope the lesson goes well beckie love.

Some of my ebay purchases came today. I'm pleased with them. The bag isn't perfect as promised but it was really cheap and the weat is minor.

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 11:43 AM

I'm okay thank you, I have a meeting with my social worker later which I'm not looking forward to
Good luck, Beckie!!

chinahorse 11-07-2017 12:12 PM

How come you're not looking forward to it lovely?

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 12:26 PM

She doesn't really listen to me and she's very patronising :/ I don't know what her role is to be honest because she doesn't actually help with anything. And she's blocked me from seeing anyone else so when she went on holiday for 2 months I was alone which was dangerous and didn't go well.

not_so_insig 11-07-2017 01:14 PM

Could you not go to pals Rebecca?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 01:39 PM

Driving lesson was great thanks!
Did 2 hours of driving down country lanes and small villages and stuff. It was fun! :)

That sounds awful Rebecca! You should definitely complain. As dawn said, you could go to pals.

Im glad you are pleased with your purchases lillie!!

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 01:43 PM

Oh wow I love little villages, that must have been pretty Beckie!

I don't know what pals is D: *stupid*

chinahorse 11-07-2017 01:54 PM

Glad you enjoyed it beckie :)

I echo what the others have said rebecca, complain.

What's everyone up to this wet afternoon?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 01:54 PM

It was! And i got to drive in the rain which is good experience.

Pals stands for patient advice and liason service. They can help with advocates and complaints.
You aren't stupid! Not everyone will know what they are.
I know if i asked any of my family they wouldn't have a clue!!

Ninja post Lillie!
I need to go to asda. I need to get quite a few things so im not sure how that's going to work with crutches :/
And its raining and i won't be able to use an umbrella.
Oh well! Pizza is worth it! :p

How are you lillie?

chinahorse 11-07-2017 02:02 PM

Use a backpack beckie. And Erm wear a coat :P

I'm ok enough. Off to town to pay in my expenses and attempt to only buy 2 things in primark.

Eska 11-07-2017 03:10 PM

Good luck with that Beckie! I'm glad your lesson went so well :D

Hope you enjoy town Lillie, even if it is raining on you.

Rebecca I hope seeing the social worker isn't too bad. I agree with the others, if the social worker isn't helping you it makes sense to get in touch with someone who can give you a bit of support.

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 03:10 PM

I dont own a backpack!
I used a big overnight type bag and it killed my shoulders but worked :p
I am drenched now though!

Good luck with that lillie!!
One does not simply just buy 2 things in Primark

chinahorse 11-07-2017 03:12 PM

Oh no beckie, glad you got everything you needed though.

It was a close call but I only got the 2 pairs of pj shorts I went in for! Cos a nightie isn't acceptable to staff even though it's longer than some people's dresses!

Eska 11-07-2017 03:20 PM

Lillie that seems odd! I'm very impressed with your self-discipline anyway.

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 03:41 PM

Wow well done Lillie!! I am impressed!
It is odd that they dont allow nighties!
Its just a dress that you wear to bed!

Eska 11-07-2017 03:51 PM

I just decided to move to a completely new city for a year and do a masters in a subject I technically haven't studied since GCSE... exciting times!

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 03:52 PM

Ow wow!! That's so exciting!!
What subject?

Eska 11-07-2017 04:07 PM

Postcolonial Literary and Cultural Studies - it's part of the English department. My degree was in Architecture! Bit of a change!

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 04:18 PM

Wow! Sounds interesting!

chinahorse 11-07-2017 04:18 PM

Oh wow eska that's so exciting!!

Eska 11-07-2017 04:22 PM

Beckie I hope it will be! It means I now have a whole chunk of prep reading to keep me occupied for the next few weeks...

Lillie yep! It's so good to actually have a decision and a way forward and something to focus on.

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 04:24 PM

Oh thanks Beckie, I've never heard of them before! I might look into them
I was going to complain but I have this thing where I don't like to upset people, and I felt bad for waiting to complain :/

That sounds awesome eska!!

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 04:27 PM

Good luck with it eska! :)

Rebecca, i used to be like that. But tbh my life has improved greatly since I stopped caring about other's feelings so much and started putting myself first!
Not in like a selfish way and I do care what other people think and feel but I consider my own needs too.
Life is a lot easier like that!

FabulousMike 11-07-2017 04:41 PM

Yo yo yo!

What's the shizzle my nizzle?

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 04:44 PM

That sounds so tough though Beckie D: I'd love to be able to not have guilt with everything though. Might start to work on that

Hello Mike!

FabulousMike 11-07-2017 04:45 PM


How's it going?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 04:52 PM

Definitely a good thing to work on Rebecca.
It makes life a lot easier and happier!

Hey Mike!

FabulousMike 11-07-2017 04:52 PM

Hey Beckie. You a-okay?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 04:58 PM

Yup I'm good!
Its pizza night tonight!! :D

FabulousMike 11-07-2017 04:58 PM

Get the fruit salad ready for that pizza! :P

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 05:05 PM

Ive already had lots of fruit today!

FabulousMike 11-07-2017 05:06 PM

Ohh well done! You're doing better than I could.

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 05:10 PM

Yay for pizza!! Hopefully you don't eat it with a knife and fork like my mum xD what type of pizza will it be?

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 05:10 PM

I love fruit!!
Best thing ever is a fruit salad with greek yogurt and honey. Nom!!

I will not eat it with a knife and fork. Thats just weird :p
Its a ham and pineapple one!

Shy_Bambi 11-07-2017 05:12 PM

I know, it's madness xD
Oh, I'd say that's nice but I'm vegetarian :P plus pineapple on pizza xD

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 05:14 PM

There are no pizza debates allowed in this thread!!!
We have a whole thread dedicated to that :p

Sketchy 11-07-2017 05:25 PM

Hello everyone.

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 05:30 PM

Hi Lorraine!
How are you?

Sketchy 11-07-2017 05:32 PM

I'm sleepy. Just been for a drive with my dad, who has recently returned to driving after many years away from it. We went to a park, had lunch in the garden centre and went a walk. I also dyed my hair today and have been to the shops. A bit more productive than normal.

How are you? Your talk of pizza is making me crave pizza again.

Cacoethes 11-07-2017 05:41 PM

That sounds nice. Busy though!

Im good. So looking forward to my pizza!! Lol!
