You're not a lightweight, i have a very high tolerance!

I could describe the car. But the company have a really bad reputation for basically not giving a **** about these things and complaints are met with rudeness and sometimes swearing. The people in my town have all been reporting them to the council or whoever regulates these things.

That's good tamo!
The hardest part of that is getting staff to actually facilitate it!

Sore feet are the worst
I wore my converse to work the other day instead of my vans and my feet were killing me!

long road 26-10-2023 01:57 PM

I have a very low tolerance. Means when I drank Alcohol I was a cheap date XD

Oh dear! complaining to council sounds a good idea.

Ooh a shift in converse does not sound comfy

I am just lying down for a bit as I got dizzy again after being up and watching TV for a while

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 02:02 PM

Ah ok!

Yeah. They are based at the train station so there's going to be someone they can go to.
I think trading standards was also mentioned

It was not.
They are comfy normally, but not when you're running around for over 6 hours!

one_step_closer 26-10-2023 03:28 PM

Hi everyone. I had to go to the gym earlier than usual and was rushing about to get my hair washed and dried first then was there too early so I'm only just catching up with internet things.

Sending you all love.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 05:44 PM

Rushing is no fun!

I had a nap again

long road 26-10-2023 05:48 PM

I also had a nap and have woken up confused and headachey

Also my in-laws are still in the house which I didn't expect. They were coming over around 2:30pm (I fell asleep just before) but didn't expect them to be here nearly 3 and a half hours later.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 06:05 PM

That is a while!

long road 26-10-2023 06:09 PM

They and partner seem to be enjoying themselves so I haven't said anything. Even though I would rather have flat to myself/ just partner and I. Apparently his parents have ordered pizza for themselves. They are a very close family and havent seen each other properly in a while.

I am holed up in our bedroom trying to come to and waiting for painkillers to kick in.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 06:15 PM

Having people about can be draining

one_step_closer 26-10-2023 06:33 PM

My house is a no people zone! Except for at Christmas when my brother comes over and I spend most of the time wanting him to go away. I'm so horrible!

long road 26-10-2023 06:35 PM

Hence why I am hiding and being antisocial.

I forgot to mention but this morning was first time crisis team suggested a bath as solution to my problems since I have been calling the Access and First Response phoneline! I explained it doesn't work with seizures. But it made me laugh and think of you guys when she said it XD


tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 06:48 PM

Yes, a seizure in a bath, that would go really well...

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 06:49 PM

I always say i have epilepsy and i may drown to them.
Usually get an awkward silence

long road 26-10-2023 06:51 PM

She did get rather flustered. It amused me XD

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 06:57 PM

It is quite funny!

long road 26-10-2023 07:02 PM

Got to laugh at such things.

Partner is making us cooked breakfast for dinner. And his parents are goin home soon.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 07:03 PM


That's one of the best dinners!

long road 26-10-2023 07:27 PM

I know right?! I was asked why I wanted for dinner and although it wasnt in the meal pla I knew we had all the ingredients so asked for it!

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 08:24 PM

I hope you enjoy it!

long road 26-10-2023 08:43 PM

It was tasty.

I am struggling a bit though.

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 08:45 PM

I'm glad it was tasty

Sorry to hear that
Virtual hugs if you want them!

tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 08:59 PM

I'm glad you enjoyed your brinner lr.

How are you Cacoethes?

Cacoethes 26-10-2023 09:00 PM

I'm tired. Think I'm gonna go to bed

Hope you're ok tamo!

tamobhuuta 26-10-2023 09:02 PM

Good night. I'm wired from today but hopefully will go to bed soon.

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 02:50 AM

2:50am is apparently a reasonable time to get up after broken sleep :eyeroll:


long road 27-10-2023 06:39 AM

Eurgh 2;50am sucks.bi just woke up myself. Am undecided if I am going to try and sleep more.

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 07:02 AM

I woke up at 2am, but desperately tried to get back to sleep for those 50 mins!
Asda is open now so I'll go in a bit

Probably should! Or plan a nap in the day

nonperson 27-10-2023 07:16 AM

Morning all. It's Friyay! I'm rather early for work o.O

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 08:09 AM

It is!
How come??

long road 27-10-2023 09:18 AM

I got back to sleep for a bit. Been awake for about an hour.

Go my speech and language therapist calling at around 10am.

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 09:21 AM

That's good

Hope your appointment goes well

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 09:25 AM

Did you go to Asda Cacoethes?

Hope your appointment is OK lr.


long road 27-10-2023 09:27 AM

Appointment should be alright. I just hope it starts roughly on time.

Hey Tamo, saw yesterday was rough. How are you today?

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 09:28 AM

I did go to asda

Morning tamo
How're you doing?

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 09:52 AM

I'm ok. Still a little on edge from yesterday.

long road 27-10-2023 09:54 AM

Understandable to be on edge.

Are there some nice things you can do for yourself? Maybe drawing or cuddling crumpet bear?

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 09:55 AM

I'm in bed with crumpet, listening to music.

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 10:00 AM

Understandable tamo
Hopefully today will be a better day

long road 27-10-2023 10:44 AM

Appointment went alright. Agree she could discharge me as the exercises I have been taught help and have helped me control the vocal chord stuff better. And in general breathing has been more under control.

She has given me one more exercise to try to help out. And If suddenly I am struggling with throat tightness a lot again then I can get referred back.

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 11:16 AM

That sounds very positive lr, well done.

long road 27-10-2023 11:51 AM

Yeah. Moving in the right direction.

one_step_closer 27-10-2023 12:21 PM

You can do this, everyone!

Accidentally Abstract 27-10-2023 12:53 PM

Hey everyone. Sorry I've not been around recently - things have just been chaotic with work, (attempting to) study, (supposedly) writing a book chapter, keeping on top of life admin, plus I got a new job which I start next month and my dad is in hospital. My support network are also struggling themselves so it's a bit thin on the ground right now which isn't ideal!

Anyway, sorry for that blurt. Hope you're all okay - sending love and hugs to all who want them! <3

one_step_closer 27-10-2023 02:18 PM

Sorry that you're having such a hard time, Luce. We are here if we can be of any help.

one_step_closer 27-10-2023 02:24 PM

My postie was wearing a halloween costume under his jacket. He seemed to have a long black skirt on and a mask on his head. He looked very embarrassed and didn't look me in the eye! I had no idea what to say to him so just said thank you as usual when he gave me my post!

long road 27-10-2023 02:25 PM

Sending hugs to you too Luce!

We understand that sometimes life is too much

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 02:55 PM

Sending a hug if that's OK to everyone.

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 05:41 PM

Hey guys
Was back from work over an hour ago but went to bed immediately

tamobhuuta 27-10-2023 05:52 PM

Well done!

Cacoethes 27-10-2023 06:20 PM

I was/am exhausted!
Did most of my shift though
The kids party was a bit overstimulating. Lots of chaos!
