I had a email from a charity whose mh forum I am registered with. It was a survey. I put that I was put off using their service because it required a phone number upon registering and I was worried that if I were having a mh crisis the police would be called. Nobody here has my phone number and I am glad that the police aren't called each time someone says that they are suicidal.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 03:38 PM

Fair enough

chinahorse 11-01-2018 03:59 PM

I second the fair enough.

Hope you're enjoying watching friends beckie.

Can't get through to the cmht or shelter. Just had the police in my building because they've had reports of drug dealing. Nothing is going right. And now I can't leave the house because I've obviously been crying.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 04:01 PM

Sorry to hear that Lillie :(
Are the phones just engaged or are you not going to be able to get through at all?
Thats really not very good of them

chinahorse 11-01-2018 04:11 PM

Both shelter and the citizens advice have no one available and then the line cuts off so there no queueing system or anything. How am I supposed to get help when they don't let me?!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 04:19 PM

Thats frustrating
I don't understand why these places don't have queuing systems. It would be so much easier
Keep trying, you'll get through eventually

Buttons. 11-01-2018 05:36 PM

That sounds really frustrating Lillie.

I'm just watching some TV and trying to persuade my dog not to lick/step on my laptop :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 05:49 PM

Hey Buttons
Sounds like fun :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 05:54 PM

Ha ha not so much plus every time I push her off the laptop she gives me the big eyed WHY CAN'T I DESTROY YOUR LAPTOP MUM.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 05:55 PM

Your poor laptop doesn't have it easy does it?!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 05:57 PM

No between me and Lady I'm surprised it's alive at all and hasn't hatched an escape mission :P Thank frick for insurance!

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:03 PM

My laptops seem to just die for no reason.

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:05 PM

Or do you spill things on it....

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:07 PM

Nope they just die!
My wii and xbox 360 suffered the same fate!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:11 PM

Sounds suspiciously like multiple spillages....

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:15 PM

It really isnt!
Illusive brother has a similar effect on electronics.
There is some explanation for it and apparently copper bracelets help but can't remember what it is!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:22 PM

Ha ha I don't need a brother my dog is plenty. I've heard magnets help as well.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:28 PM

Yes I have heard that!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:38 PM

A couple of months ago I went to my old college tutor's event Magnitex or something (magnet related jewlellery) and it was really fun. Although even in a wheelchair you can never get away with saying 'wait I'll just swivel' :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:40 PM

That does sounds cool

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:42 PM

It was and a nice reminder of my A level days :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:45 PM

Awww :)

I've got fit beatz tonight.
Hopefully it will take my mind off things!

Buttons. 11-01-2018 06:50 PM

Hope it helps Beckie. Lucky I noticed my typing as auto correct said hoe possibly something I don't want to say :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 06:57 PM

Ahahah! Fail :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:00 PM

As per usual :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:04 PM

Well I didn't want to point it out...... :p

Buttons. 11-01-2018 07:06 PM

You wonderful weirdo :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:09 PM

Thats me!! :-D

Aubergine 11-01-2018 07:24 PM


Cacoethes 11-01-2018 07:26 PM

Hi aubergine!
How was work?

Aubergine 11-01-2018 07:27 PM

Busy! Winter is an interesting time in the NHS.

I've now got sweet chilli chicken in the oven though. :D

Sketchy 11-01-2018 07:27 PM

Hello all.

Hope everyone is well.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 07:30 PM

Hey Lorraine! How's it going?

Sketchy 11-01-2018 07:32 PM

Hey Aubergine. I’m ok, how are you? I hope you enjoy your dinner.

I’ve napped most of the day, but I’m up and in my living room. Going to clean my kitchen soon.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 07:43 PM

I'm glad you're OK. Napping is nice. Well done for sitting in your living room. Kitchen cleaning sounds like a good plan!

I'm tired! Busy day. Dinner is smelling good!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 07:49 PM

You deserve a nice dinner after your busy day.

I’m going to put music on while I tidy. That always helps.

Buttons. 11-01-2018 08:10 PM

Hope your dinner is nice Aubergine :)

I find similar re. music Lorraine.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:15 PM

I just did a quick 20 minute tidy up. Back on my rocking chair and watching a program about big cats. Tigers, etc. My Molly’s cousins.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:17 PM

Dinner was nice. :) Lidl is now my favourite supermarket.

I always listen to music when I'm cleaning too, Lorraine. It really does make it much easier!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:18 PM

Glad you enjoyed your dinner.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:19 PM

Programme sounds interesting. I wonder if Molly is watching?!

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:21 PM

Molly is in my sister’s flat fast asleep. It would be funny if she did watch it.
I always call her my little panther, so I hope they show panthers on this program.

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:24 PM

Molly is the same colour as a panther! That's a cute nickname. :) Hopefully they will have panthers on the TV! :)

I have chocolate. :D

Sketchy 11-01-2018 08:25 PM

Yay chocolate. Yum!

Aubergine 11-01-2018 08:32 PM

Have you got some nice chocolate to munch on tonight? I have Galaxy!

not_so_insig 11-01-2018 08:47 PM

I wish I could see the program about big cats but crappy bbc Wales has put some regional crap on instead. The same goes for next week. Guess I will have to wait until Sunday.

Cacoethes 11-01-2018 08:57 PM

I am jealous of the chocolate!

Aubergine 11-01-2018 09:04 PM


I got into bed. I am so rock and roll.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:09 PM

I do have chocolate from Christmas, but I’m trying to save it for treat days.

Sketchy 11-01-2018 09:09 PM

Are you off to sleep Aubergine? Hope you sleep well.
