Must be a therapy physio type thing.

tamobhuuta 21-10-2019 11:18 AM

Morning everyone. I'm back from my retreat. I missed you all!

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 11:23 AM

Sounds like a fancy hospital!

How was it tamo?

I am off 1-1 and on intermittent obs now! Yay!

chinahorse 21-10-2019 11:25 AM

It really is beckie. Yay for being on normal obs!! Well done.

What sort of retreat was it tamo?

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 11:29 AM

Thanks!
It's a bit weird not being followed around but I am very pleased!

tamobhuuta 21-10-2019 12:17 PM

Well done Cacoethes.

It was about a book by St Teresa of Avila, the Interior Castle.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 12:20 PM

Thanks tamo!

What did you do on the retreat?

tamobhuuta 21-10-2019 12:23 PM

Went to talks about the book, prayed, went on little walks, did some reading.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 12:34 PM

Sounds good!

one_step_closer 21-10-2019 01:09 PM

Did you enjoy the retreat Tamo?

Good stuff Beckie. :thumbup:

not_so_insig 21-10-2019 01:36 PM

Hooray Beckie.

I have a cat on me.

tamobhuuta 21-10-2019 02:40 PM

I did enjoy it thanks, I hope I can go back.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 02:48 PM

What's everyone up to today?

one_step_closer 21-10-2019 03:37 PM

Buying stuff online. I'm wondering if it's the Aripiprazole's fault, I'm seriously buying so much more than usual.

How are you enjoying your partial freedom Beckie?

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 04:12 PM

Maybe. Meds can have some weird side effects.

It's nice being left alone!
And it seems that 'intermittent' checks are basically never so lol.

not_so_insig 21-10-2019 04:48 PM

I am watching tv. Made my tea whilst I was feeling up to it (soup made from scratch) just gotta reheat it when I feel hungry later.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 05:00 PM

What kind of soup?

chinahorse 21-10-2019 05:08 PM

Glad you enjoyed it tamo.

What flavour soup Dawn?

Meds can have strange side effects Lindsay. Can ypu speak to your team about it?

not_so_insig 21-10-2019 05:12 PM

Tomato, courgette, black bean and red pepper is the flavour of my soup. With grated cheese when I serve it.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 05:21 PM

Sounds yummy!

I had a fall and now my wrist has swollen up
Looks like a bruised golf ball!
They're getting the duty doc to have a look but looks like I'll be spending the evening in a&e
Sad face

chinahorse 21-10-2019 05:24 PM

You need to be more careful!!

I should go back to the ward. Dinner seems to be at variable times and I don't wanna miss it. It's sure to be such a delight #sarcasm

tamobhuuta 21-10-2019 05:33 PM

Can't beat hospital food

chinahorse 21-10-2019 05:59 PM

Can't remember what I ordered either as you do it the day before.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 06:10 PM

I do need to be more careful!
Doctor has been and she thinks it's broken so fun times ahead :/

Gotta love hospital food!
Hope it's ok!

chinahorse 21-10-2019 06:22 PM

I'm not even sure what the food is trying to be...

Oh no beckie. Hope it's not broken.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 06:28 PM

That's not a good sign!

Thanks, me too!
Cba for a cast again.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 09:39 PM

Back from a&e
It was jam packed in there. Couldn't even sit down but a lovely nurse rushed me through.
Wrist isn't broken thankfully! Just very badly bruised.

chinahorse 21-10-2019 09:45 PM

Ah that's good news beckie.

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 10:03 PM

Yep! I was very relieved.
Will take a good couple of weeks to heal properly though unfortunately

How are you doing?

chinahorse 21-10-2019 10:12 PM

You did a proper job on it then!

I don't feel so good. Hoping sleep will fix me and that it's just the fibromyalgia not an infection :/

Cacoethes 21-10-2019 10:22 PM

I did!

Oh no :(
I really hope you start to feel better soon
Have you told the nurses?

chinahorse 22-10-2019 08:10 AM

Morning guys. Hope you all slept well and wishing you all a good day.

Cacoethes 22-10-2019 10:08 AM

Morning Lillie

I got woken up to have a mental health act assessment so that's fun. They are discussing me now.
Also got woken up at 7am for blood sugars which were low so I had to have nasty glucogel which made me feel sick.
It's only 10 and its not been a great day already!

How are you?

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:16 AM

Oh dear. Maybe try to keep having sugary coffee regularly to avoid the glucogel?

I got woken up by a rude consultant who changed the plan disnt tell me why and walked off before I could ask.

Cacoethes 22-10-2019 10:33 AM

Probably a good idea!
I've been put on a section 3 now. Even though I said I'd stay informally. Dammit.

How rude Lillie!
Can you ask the nurses to explain what he said properly?

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:38 AM

Sorry it's not what you want beckie.

I cried on the nurses. Who were kind.

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:41 AM

I've eaten like 289 biscuits :/

one_step_closer 22-10-2019 10:43 AM

Boo to bad mornings. :( I hope your days improve.

Better eat another to round that up Lillie!

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:45 AM

Omg movicol is rank.

Cacoethes 22-10-2019 10:45 AM

Im glad the nurses were kind.
That makes all the difference sometimes

I agree with lindsay!!

Hope your day is going better!

Funnily enough there's a cup of movicol in the clinic room and the hca was saying it looks like vomit

one_step_closer 22-10-2019 10:48 AM

I have no idea what that is but I wouldn't want to drink anything that looked like vomit. :/

Why can't they make things more pleasant?!

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:49 AM

It smelt like fake lemons. And has made me feel sick.

one_step_closer 22-10-2019 10:50 AM

Eww. Poor you. I hope you feel better soon. Can you eat another biscuit to disguise the taste? :-)

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:50 AM

I agree Lindsay! They can put men on the moon so why can't they make medicine taste ok?

And movicol is a laxative drink.

one_step_closer 22-10-2019 10:52 AM

Someone left their drink next to the cups of plain water one time when I was in hospital and I accidentally had a tiny sip and it was yuck.

That salty stuff that you have to drink if you have low potassium is worse though. I had to drink it a couple of times and then found out that they had read my blood results wrong or something so I didn't even need it in the first place.

chinahorse 22-10-2019 10:56 AM

Ewwwwww. And yeah I just ate like 4 bananas instead.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2019 11:41 AM

I take movicol, you get used to it.

Cacoethes 22-10-2019 11:43 AM

I don't know why they can't make all medicine taste like strawberry calpol. That stuff was nice!
My liquid meds taste disgusting.

tamobhuuta 22-10-2019 12:50 PM

Strawberry calpol is ace

Cacoethes 22-10-2019 12:53 PM

It really is!!
The sugar free stuff isn't as nice though
