I just think a stressful psych admission is not the time to try and stop smoking plus I'm so unpredictable (even to myself 0.o atm) that without that 5 minute calm down I can just see the admission ending badly..

In more chipper news I just found a new set of comedy so I'm cheering up a bit-basically involves watching comedians get drunk :P

How are you lovely?

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 12:42 PM

Smoking is very important when it comes to psych stuff!
The assessment unit near me didn't allow you to leave the ward for the entire time that you were there. It was horrible! They've changed the rules now so you can go outside to smoke.
We always used to sneak down to the basement courtyard though I'd we didn't have leave (staff's idea!)
My last hospital we could smoke anytime we liked, even right through the night! It was pretty awesome!

How are we all today?

Pissed off as no support worker has turned up and the man who came to fix the gas meter can't do it without a support worker there (they were supposed to be here by 11am so that went well -_-) other than that though enjoying my twin interests of drunk comedians talking about history so trying to distract as best I can. How are you?

Buttons. 03-12-2016 12:55 PM

Plus I have a little electric heater my dad brought round the other day and don't feel the cold much so all is not lost :P

Sketchy 03-12-2016 01:02 PM

Hi everyone.

Katy I hope you get your meter fixed soon. It's stressful when things don't go to plan.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 01:04 PM

Ugh. That's annoying Katy!
At least you've found something new to watch! It sounds funny! What's it called?

HI Lorraine :)

Sketchy 03-12-2016 01:07 PM

Hi Beckie.

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:08 PM

It's genuinely called Drunk History and it has some EPIC drunk comedians on it, plus geeking out on history :P-having fun watching history as told by completely rat arsed comedians :P

Sketchy 03-12-2016 01:10 PM

Sounds funny

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:15 PM

T'is indeed :)

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 01:21 PM

That does sound good!

All my history knowledge comes from horrible histories

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:23 PM

^ I used to love those!!!!

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 01:48 PM

They were great! Have you seen the tv show?
And I think they did a stage show of it a few years ago,

I'm watching judge rinder now. Bit of a guilty pleasure!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:54 PM

Shame on you!!!!!!

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 01:55 PM

I know it's so awful but so entertaining!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 01:59 PM


Cacoethes 03-12-2016 03:28 PM

I'm watching St Trinians now. I love this film!

Asda was mental today!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 03:51 PM

Now St Trinians I can get on board with-I love that film too!!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 03:52 PM

And I hate supermarkets they're always insane!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 03:53 PM

Just had a home treatment guy never met before ranting about Family Guy and Jehovahs Witnessess 0.o didn't quite know what to say!

Sketchy 03-12-2016 04:33 PM

Once again I'm in my local coffee shop having tea. I had to get out the flat for a while and go to the shops. My washing machine finally arrived today after being delayed, so I have a fun evening of washing ahead of me.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 04:45 PM

Whenever I see the crisis team they end up ranting about some crap! Once had to explain what I played on the 'playstation' (it's an xbox) and explain the storyline to assassins creed which is not the easiest game to explain!
And the time that the AMHPs were here with me waiting for an ambulance and they asked for my wifi password and we watched Jeremy kyle. It was a bit awkward!

Glad your washing machine finally arrived Lorraine!

Sketchy 03-12-2016 04:47 PM

Thanks Beckie.

I've had random conversations with crisis before. It must just be something they like to do.

not_so_insig 03-12-2016 04:57 PM

Afternoon all.

I am currently binge watching this week's Neighbours.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 05:07 PM

Must be some sort of distraction technique they like to do!

Hi Dawn! I don't think I've ever watched neighbours.
I'm watching Taskmaster which is hilarious!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 05:28 PM

About an hour ago I gave a taxi driver a lolli pop after I'd been in the shop. Not entirely sure why but he was happy...

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 05:32 PM

Haha!! Well I'd be happy if someone randomly gave me a lollypop!

Buttons. 03-12-2016 05:34 PM

Well I felt considering the shortness of the journey and shitness of the tip he deserved a reward :P

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 05:37 PM

That was very thoughtful of you!

Have you ever seen taskmaster Katy?

Buttons. 03-12-2016 05:38 PM

No no I haven't, what is it?

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 05:46 PM

It's presented by Greg Davies who is the taskmaster. He gets 5 comedians to do random tasks for example, making a bed while holding hands or paint a horse while riding a horse and just silly but difficult tasks like that. It's one of the only shows that make me properly laugh out loud!

Voldemort 03-12-2016 06:40 PM

Evening all!

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 06:48 PM

Hi amy! How was your day at home?

Voldemort 03-12-2016 06:50 PM

I'm still here. Ritzi's not feeling very well so is holed up in the bathroom. It's been nice. Hard but nice.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 06:54 PM

Oh no poor Ritzi!
Glad it's been a nice day. Hopefully you'll be able to go back home again soon!

Voldemort 03-12-2016 07:09 PM


Cacoethes 03-12-2016 07:19 PM

It won't be forever. I know it can feel like it at times but it won't!

What are you up to?

Voldemort 03-12-2016 07:37 PM

Just waiting on my lift back in.

What're you up to this evening?

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 07:53 PM

Watching breaking bad until casualty comes on.
Might have a snack.

Voldemort 03-12-2016 09:03 PM

I'm back. :(

What did you have for a snack? I'm stuffed to the gills with Chinese. Ugh.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 09:10 PM

I had satsumas and a banana.
I wish I had a Chinese though! Sounds much better than fruit!
What did you have?

Sketchy 03-12-2016 09:12 PM

I like satsumas.

Amy did you enjoy your time home? I know how precious time away from hospital is, so I hope you managed to have a relaxing time.

Voldemort 03-12-2016 09:14 PM

It was much nicer than fruit! I had salt and chilli chicken, noodles, a spring roll and a satay stick! More than my stomach can hold! I did share it with Ritzi though.

Time at home was hard. It was nice to be there but thoughts and stuff.

Sketchy 03-12-2016 09:17 PM

I can imagine it must have been tough. It sounds like you had some yummy food. I quite fancy some Chinese food now.

Cacoethes 03-12-2016 09:20 PM

Mmm that sounds so yummy!!

It will get easier amy x

Voldemort 03-12-2016 09:21 PM

Yeah. It was good. I feel guilty now though. Trying not to think too much about it.

Voldemort 03-12-2016 09:22 PM

How are you guys this evening?

Sketchy 03-12-2016 09:23 PM

I'm ok. Now I have my new washing machine I'm frantically catching up on washes.

Voldemort 03-12-2016 09:24 PM

Oh no. There's nothing worse than getting behind on laundry! Especially in the winter!

Sketchy 03-12-2016 09:25 PM

I know. Thankfully my sister lives in a flat four doors away, so I managed to use hers sometimes.
