What about stewed apple and yoghurt? I also used to like grilled apple and cheese but cheese sets my acid off now. Itís a shame as I miss the taste.

I'm incredibly bananaphobic. =P

Never had stewed or grilled apple. Not much of an apple fan either but I do like a baked apple with honey and sultanas from time to time.

Morning all. I'm currently trying to decide whether to ring the doctors or not. =/

How's everyone?

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 09:37 AM

Ring the doctors np!!!

I'm ok. Hoping to get discharged from the general hospital today

nonperson 09-03-2020 10:03 AM

Ugh, don't make me call them! =P I'm dreading getting an unhelpful receptionist who will tell me that I'm potentially contagious and to quarantine myself.

That's good news. =)

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 11:52 AM

Caaallll theeemmmm!!!

I'm not getting discharged. Booooo!

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 12:24 PM

Because of the seizures I think
Have to have an EEG and consult with neurologist person

I'm looking forward to when the coffee next comes round

Chocolate biscuits are preferable to cereal bars!

nonperson 09-03-2020 12:44 PM

Ah Beckie that really sucks! Better to be discharged later than too soon though so it is for the best (not a comforting statement, I know). You'll get out of there one day, I promise!

Mmmm, I have some chocolate hobnobs in the cupboard that I keep forgetting about.

I did ring the doctors, as expected the unhelpful receptionist simply said "Call 111", nothing else.... so I did. On hold for half an hour but the friendly man thinks I'm fine despite symptoms and having been abroad and thankfully didn't suggest self-isolation. So got back on the phone to the same receptionist who did eventually make an appointment for me this afternoon.

Work have back-to-work protocols I need to follow as well. Crazy, isn't it. o.o

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 12:48 PM

Yeah that's true
Last thing I want is to be discharged and then end up back in A&E again!

Yum! Chocolate hobnobs!

Well done for getting all that sorted! Even though it sounds like a pain in the bum!

nonperson 09-03-2020 12:50 PM

Total pain in the bum, but better to be safe than sorry.

Also just realised I made 7 phone calls in 5 hours this morning. All time record. *faint!*

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 12:58 PM

That is a lot of phone calls!

nonperson 09-03-2020 01:08 PM

Yep, no more for the rest of the year now.

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 01:28 PM

Have you filled your quota?

nonperson 09-03-2020 02:29 PM

For definite. =P

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 02:34 PM

hey guys! how are you?

today feels like the last month of school ^^

what quota?

nonperson 09-03-2020 03:30 PM

Why the last month of school?

My quota for making phonecalls for the year.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 03:48 PM

I don't really know, it's like its the last week of school-
the air has that energy ^^ *weird answer queen*

ah, mine is solely zero ^^"

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 04:41 PM

Good afternoon everyone!

I'm only getting one visit today, I know I'm lucky to see my family so often.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 04:42 PM

Hey Tamo!

How are you?

Thats good ^^

Why only one today though?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 04:45 PM

Dad couldn't visit this morning because of my sister's therapy and in the week L and my Mum take turns to visit.

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 05:16 PM

That's nice you're getting a visit tamo

I'm kinda glad I have to have a 1:1 nurse at the general hospital or I'd just be sitting here alone for days on end!

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 05:23 PM

Hey C, how are you?

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 05:27 PM

Bored! I've been in the medical hospital for 4 days now and there is nothing to do!
And I have no change of clothes because the staff at the psych ward won't bring them in for me

The shortbread sounds delicious redcat!

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 05:30 PM

Aw, maybe you can find something to do in the RYL arcade?

or maybe play a game with the nurses?

that sucks, why won't they bring them in?

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 06:18 PM

Sorry you are stuck, bored in hospital Cacoethes. Are you up to reading? Maybe download an ebook?

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 06:25 PM

Most people call me Beckie, redcat but I don't mind :)

The staff won't bring anything in because they suck
No one else can bring anything because they all live too far away.
It's a psych ward in my 'local' area but it's not actually local to me or my family at all.

I don't really have the concentration for reading atm.
I've been sleeping a lot

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 06:32 PM

If you're sleeping lots your body probably needs it.

Shirayuki 09-03-2020 06:50 PM


I think they should check their dictionaries for the word "local" ^^

but if your sleeping alot, then as Tamo said, you probably need it

Cacoethes 09-03-2020 09:46 PM

That's true
The nurse on my 1:1 is one I know well from the wards before so I'm happy about that :)

tamobhuuta 09-03-2020 09:55 PM

Are they good company?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 08:39 AM

They were good company tamo

There are distractions and groups and stuff on the psych ward but I've been on a medical ward for 5 days (I think) where nothing much goes on!
No idea when I can go back to the psych ward, even less idea when I can go home!

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 10:17 AM

Morning Cacoethes and everyone else.
They got me up for meds at half 8 but now I'm back in bed.

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 12:23 PM

Morning tamo

They woke me up for breakfast. Then meds. Then to have my blood pressure checked a million times.
Then for lunch.
Other than that, I've been asleep!

Ophiuchus 10-03-2020 12:41 PM

Nothing quite like the routine of hospital!

Today is a day for catching up on my reading.
And finding that missing Gwent card!

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 01:09 PM

I had a good surprise this morning - I knew my dad was visiting but my sister came too!

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 02:15 PM

And I still haven't seen a doctor today despite being promised one in 'a couple of hours' at 8:30 this morning....apparently it will be in the next hour now.

Thats a lovely surprise tamo

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 03:46 PM

Thats a great surprise Tamo!

Hey guys, how are you?

Whats Gwent?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 04:24 PM


My 1:1 nurse is going on her break soon and is going to buy me a coke zero :)

How are you?

Ophiuchus 10-03-2020 05:05 PM

Gwent is a card game introduced in The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.
You collect the cards and play against NPC's in the world.
I am missing one card and it is plaguing me now :laugh:

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 06:07 PM

I need to play The Witcher 3
I loved the series on Netflix

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 06:12 PM

The coke sounds nice, the couple of nice people of the world ^^

ah- still confused but thanks for the explanation, I don't know what "The Witcher" is ^^"

I'm tired, you?

Cacoethes 10-03-2020 06:19 PM

She bought me 2 bottles of coke zero :)

The witcher is a book series as well as a series of games and now a TV show

I am also tired

not_so_insig 10-03-2020 06:21 PM

Gwent is an area in Wales so I thought it was a reference to that. It's also an police force so I was kinda confused as I wasn't sure if you were the police.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 06:21 PM

thats really sweet of her ^^

oooh thank you ^^

and i still have to get through science with my least favorite teacher, and then all of the homework-

what do you do to help calm down anxiety?

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 06:22 PM

Hey Insig, how are you?

not_so_insig 10-03-2020 06:25 PM

I am annoyed. Basically my neighbour was being antisocial last night so I was very tired this morning and had an sleep deprivation headache. I fell asleep for an hour before which helped. I am hoping there isnt a repeat tonight.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 06:27 PM

That doesn't sound fun, naps are always good :)

I'll join you ^^"

Any plans for today? well for the rest of today?

one_step_closer 10-03-2020 06:35 PM

*pokes Dawn's neighbour*

Ophiuchus 10-03-2020 06:37 PM

I am definitely not the police.
(whiiiich sounds like something an undercover police person would say....)

Caco - I just love the game so much. It's gorgeous and heartbreaking and funny and frustrating all in equal measures.
I'm re-reading the books at the moment and I love seeing the moments between the characters that I've grown to love from the games.
The Netflix series was pretty good too, although I do have issues with certain casting choices.

RoseThorne - The Witcher started out as a series of books written by a Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, which were then translated into English and other languages. The game dev company CDPR then took the rights and made three games. The first one is okay, the second is much better and the third is simply outstanding.
You play a Witcher - Geralt of Rivia - and in the third game you're searching for your, well, she's kind of like a daughter to Geralt. There's a lot of side quests (it's an RPG) and, most importantly, the card game Gwent.

As a side note - I FOUND THE MISSING CARD!!!!

tamobhuuta 10-03-2020 06:46 PM


My brother and L came to see me, they stayed ages which was lovely.

Shirayuki 10-03-2020 06:53 PM

Oh thank you!

*pokes neighbor* Hey, please don't bug Insig!

That sounds wonderful Tamo, how are you?
