Oooh new mattress!

My Next delivery (that was meant to come on Saturday) should be coming today. Should. Bloody Hermes

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 09:54 AM

What are you getting from Next?

shadow-light 17-05-2021 10:45 AM

how's people today?

I realised I've been withdrawig from everyone over the last week or so (bar instagram but even there i've been posting but not really interacting), so I'm making myself interact again and you lot seem safest to my brain :laugh: feel honored?

on the llama topic, I have a llama stress squishy thing :P

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 10:50 AM

Hi shadow, good to see you. Sorry things are hard. Do you have any plans?

shadow-light 17-05-2021 11:03 AM

So far today I've stared at a wall and played on youtube :ermm: got a zoom meeting at half one though, and an exam tonight that I really should be revising for... I'll force myself to do something at some point

You up to much?

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 11:05 AM

Not really. I'm debating whether to put proper clothes on.

shadow-light 17-05-2021 11:07 AM

Oh, ye, that's a thing I should probably also do... cant have my zoom thing still in pyjamas :laugh:

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 11:11 AM

I have leggings and a dress from Next!
It has arrived but they're having a meeting in the room where my clothes are kept so they're staying in the office for now.

Hi Hazel!
Nice to see you!

shadow-light 17-05-2021 11:44 AM

my exam has been moved to next week! I really shouldn't feel this happy about that :notsure: but just means i don't have to drive or go to the college. On the other hand once exam is done (assuming i pass) that's it, college done... so kind of want to get it over and done with, but on the other hand want to hide :doze:

everyone seems to be living in leggings these days, almost supprised that the shops hav'ent run out of them :laugh:

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 11:49 AM

I did get dressed, I'm wearing a jumper dress.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 12:18 PM

I ALWAYS wear leggings and a dress!
At the moment I've got some galaxy print leggings on amd a baggy top. It's all about the comfort!

shadow-light 17-05-2021 12:25 PM

to be fair i cant say much as i basically live in one pair of leggings and hoody... only time i wear different is for running or sleeping :laugh:

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 12:46 PM


Its just started pouring down with rain here!

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 12:53 PM

Just heard a huge crack of thunder!

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 01:13 PM

We had that weather yesterday.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 01:17 PM

It's sunny now. What even is British weather?!

nonperson 17-05-2021 01:33 PM

I've been out working in the rain/sunshine/thunder all morning. Coat on, coat off, coat on, hide under a tree, coat off... gah!

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 01:52 PM

How annoying np!

nonperson 17-05-2021 03:31 PM

And now it's just cold and I'm tired... *whine*

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 03:41 PM

*Pats np on the head*

one_step_closer 17-05-2021 03:47 PM

When is home time NP?

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 03:51 PM

Hi osc, how are you?

one_step_closer 17-05-2021 04:04 PM

Struggling a bit.

How's your day going, Tamo?

tamobhuuta 17-05-2021 04:09 PM

I'm ok, got persistent low level anxiety but it's manageable. What are you up to? I'm waiting for a delivery.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 04:25 PM

Hi lindsay and tamo!

I did another psychology group!

nonperson 17-05-2021 05:19 PM

Was it useful?

I'm home now =)

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 05:44 PM

Not really lol

Any plans for the evening?

nonperson 17-05-2021 05:59 PM

Not really... Just TV and food and sleep.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 06:08 PM

Sounds good to me!

nonperson 17-05-2021 06:55 PM

It should be but all those things are stressful for some reason!

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 07:38 PM

Hmmmm. That's a bit odd!

nonperson 17-05-2021 08:01 PM

*points to avatar*


Dinner's in the oven now anyhow.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 08:06 PM

Haha! I take your point :p

What are you having?

nonperson 17-05-2021 08:10 PM


A salmon parcel, tiny potatoes and cherry tomatoes.

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 08:15 PM

Sounds yummy!

I had beef pie with chips and veg

nonperson 17-05-2021 08:57 PM

Also yummy =o

Cacoethes 17-05-2021 09:14 PM

It was rather!

one_step_closer 18-05-2021 10:19 AM

Morning everyone, how are you all?

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 10:26 AM

Morning lindsay!
I'm good thanks
How are you?

tamobhuuta 18-05-2021 10:28 AM

Hi osc. I'm ok, got a friend coming over later, how are you?

tamobhuuta 18-05-2021 10:29 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 10:40 AM

Hi tamo!

I'm ok thanks :)

That sounds good. Do you have anything planned?

tamobhuuta 18-05-2021 10:55 AM

We will just have coffee and chat.

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 11:08 AM

Aww that's nice!

shadow-light 18-05-2021 11:14 AM

Hi all

people up to much?

I've been sent a leaflet about the group activities our local Mind host (my job centre suggested I contact them) and so looking through to see what interests me. Though apparently most are booked up until september...

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 11:29 AM

Hi Hazel!

I have ward round at 3 but that's about it!

I used to go to my local Mind place. It was actually pretty good!

shadow-light 18-05-2021 11:37 AM

i a bit worried about it as I dont really leave my street any more... but the job centre women thought i might be good for me to socialise... even if I only do their zoom activities it would be more socialisation than I've had in a year I guess

I don't know... currently i'm just staring at the form and doing nothing about it :laugh:

You got no group thingies today then? Seemed like you were doing all the groups the other day, or yesterday, or whenever it was.

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 12:55 PM

Yeah it can be a bit daunting
Zoom activities could be good!

Forms suck!

No groups on ward round days unfortunately! I did 3 groups yesterday and 2 the day before that

shadow-light 18-05-2021 01:01 PM

ah, that makes sense. Are you finding the groups helpful? Or is it more a "somethign to do" type thing?

I get the job centres oint, the socialisation may be good for me... but I find other humans scary :laugh: however, the longer I am staying away from other humans the more scared/paranoid about them I am becoming :sigh:

also the fact they are booked up till september is a thing, I was hoping to be back to being at least "pretend functional" and having a job again by then :laugh:

oh well, whatever... I've filled in a form now and sent it in, will just have to wait and see what happens

Cacoethes 18-05-2021 01:04 PM

It's more just something to do!
But some of them can be fun

Yes it can get like that.
We did a 'coping with anxiety' group yesterday and one of the coping skills was avoiding the situation but the bad thing about that was that you can build it up and up in your head to be way worse than it actually is!
