Afternoon everyone. How is your day going so far?

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 04:04 PM

It's ok, wind meant L couldn't go to work so we're watching Sleepy Hollow. How are you?

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 04:20 PM

You're on lamotrigine aren't you tamo?
If you have a rash, you need to tell a doctor today.

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 04:49 PM

Thanks for the advice, but i reckon it's ok, my sister has had the lamotrogine rash and this doesn't seem to be the same. It's not itchy or spreading. If it gets worse I will definitely call the doctor.

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 05:30 PM

Ok, if you're sure!

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 05:33 PM

I am :)

You ok?

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 05:39 PM


Yeah. Spent a while in the sensory room with a couple of staff so feeling a bit more settled

one_step_closer 18-02-2022 05:48 PM

Take care of yourself Tamo and get checked out if you need to.

I'm glad you're feeling more settled Beckie.

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 05:51 PM

Thanks lindsay

How are you?

one_step_closer 18-02-2022 05:54 PM

Are you doing much this evening to try and stay settled? I know it's not that easy sometimes though.

I'm just feeling like I'm failing at life and can't cope with much.

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 06:12 PM

Hugs if wanted osc.

L's school has a sensory space, they sound great.

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 06:19 PM

I'm listening to music atm

Sorry to hear that lindsay

one_step_closer 18-02-2022 06:40 PM


Are either of you in the area where the wind is extra wild? We just had a weather warning for snow but it didn't come to much.

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 06:44 PM

Just very windy here.
I haven't been outside.
But from the work group chat there have been walls/roofs/traffic lights down.
And power cuts. Work had to close a few hours ago because of a power cut

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 06:44 PM

It's pretty windy here but I'm in the south so probably not as bad as other places.

one_step_closer 18-02-2022 06:46 PM

Hopefully it'll calm down soon. I do like storms a bit but I heard someone died because a tree fell on them so that's not good.

tamobhuuta 18-02-2022 06:49 PM

That's not good :(

Cacoethes 18-02-2022 06:49 PM

Not good at all

not_so_insig 19-02-2022 09:45 AM

Morning all! I beat Beckie.

It wasn't terribly windy where I am yesterday. Known worse storms as I could watch TV through the dish. It was rainy though and managed to get to town as I met my friend. It's my birthday on Tuesday so she had a present for me. Plus Lorraine has sent me something. Also my birthday is a palindrome date!

tamobhuuta 19-02-2022 11:37 AM

Hi insig, how old are you going to be?

I am quite spasmy because it's a couple of days since I had lorazepam.

not_so_insig 19-02-2022 02:20 PM

I am going to the grand old age of 41 tamobhuuta. I am an oldie here. Sorry you're spasmy.

tamobhuuta 19-02-2022 02:36 PM

You're very old :p even older than me! (I am 31)

one_step_closer 19-02-2022 03:26 PM

What's a palindrome date? Are you planning anything for your birthday?

Is Lorazepam a regular med for you or PRN Tamo? Spasms must be annoying. I get akathisia and that's annoying enough.

tamobhuuta 19-02-2022 03:41 PM

It's PRN, I usually need it every other day but it does vary.

How are you?

not_so_insig 19-02-2022 05:39 PM

A palindrome date is a date that reads the same forwards as backwards Lindsay. I am going to an antiques and collectibles place plus out for tea on my birthday.

one_step_closer 19-02-2022 06:02 PM

Tamo, do you take the Lorazepam for your spasms or when you're distressed or both?

Oh that's interesting Dawn, I'd never heard of that. Sounds like some good birthday plans, I hope you have a great day.

I'm just getting worked up about every tiny thing.

tamobhuuta 19-02-2022 07:22 PM

The lorazepam is for anxiety but a handy side effect is it reduces the spasming. I'm on lamotrogine for the spasms and that will be increased soon under order of the neurologist.

Is there anything you could think of osc that would help? A way to say no to all the thoughts? Sounds stupid but a puzzle type thing. I won't lie, sometimes the best thing for me is TV or an audiobook.

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 09:33 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 20-02-2022 11:42 AM

Hola! How are you?

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 11:49 AM

Bonjour! I'm struggling with some stuff but feel physically better than i did yesterday

How are you?

tamobhuuta 20-02-2022 12:37 PM

I'm ok. I was thinking of walking back from mass later but it's forecast to chuck it down. I will walk tomorrow.

Would it help to talk to staff?

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 12:44 PM

Yeah the weather isn't great!

Probably not
They'll just tell.me I'm delusional again and that just annoys me

tamobhuuta 20-02-2022 01:22 PM

I understand that!

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 01:26 PM

I wanted to buy a t shirt that says 'I'm not delusional, just ask my talking unicorn' but i decided against it :tongue2:

tamobhuuta 20-02-2022 02:00 PM

That's an awesome t shirt!

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 02:00 PM

Yeah it was pretty cool!
I like my quirky t shirts

one_step_closer 20-02-2022 02:52 PM

In my ward I'm known for my quirky t-shirts.

Have you bought any from QWERTEE Beckie?

I have one that I bought from the Grum Reapur that says 'life is wondawful'

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 03:08 PM

I have done in the past but not this time because they take FOREVER to deliver!

That sounds awesome!

one_step_closer 20-02-2022 03:10 PM

I've never noticed them taking forever to deliver.

Where do you get your t-shirts from?

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 03:24 PM

It took quite a while last time!

I got the last lot from threadheads.
And some today from shirtbox.

one_step_closer 20-02-2022 06:39 PM

I'll need to check them out.

How is everyone this evening?

Can you believe there have been three storms in a row?

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 07:21 PM

They are similar to qwertee!

I'm ok. Had prn and a shower so I'm chilled

I know!
It just started chucking it down here! Could have showered outside!!

one_step_closer 20-02-2022 07:25 PM

I'm glad you're ok Beckie. What are you getting up to?

I'm not sure about showering outside!

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 07:33 PM

Just random internetting currently!
Going to go and make a coffee i think

Haha! The rain has calmed down now. I did want to go outside in it though! I like jumping about in really heavy rain!

one_step_closer 20-02-2022 07:36 PM

Is there much going on in your random internetting? Enjoy your coffee. The rain can be quite fun!

Cacoethes 20-02-2022 08:03 PM

Not really!
Thanks, i have now had my coffee!

What are you up to?

Cacoethes 21-02-2022 09:36 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 21-02-2022 10:53 AM

Aloha, how are you?

Cacoethes 21-02-2022 10:56 AM

I'm ok. Apart from the anxiety which seems to be pretty standard these days!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 21-02-2022 10:59 AM

Do you have any coping skills or PRN? Or both?
