Afternoon all.

one_step_closer 05-10-2022 03:35 PM

Hey everyone. How are your days going? Or should it be how is your day going?

tamobhuuta 05-10-2022 04:57 PM

Hi insig and osc.

I am OK. I just watched and enjoyed doctors. But I have a cold :( how are you?

one_step_closer 05-10-2022 06:00 PM

Boo to having a cold. I hope it passes soon. Glad you enjoyed Doctors though. Is it repeats you're watching?

I'm not sure how I am.

Cacoethes 05-10-2022 07:45 PM

I've had a fuxking awful day

maii 06-10-2022 12:25 AM

Hi everyone!


Sorry I've not posted since I've joined, but I'm worried as the holidays draw closer and I avoid celebrations for obvious reasons. I go into isolation mode and life gets fuzzy.



I hope its alright to post in this thread and its hard for me to express myself; although, I feel online might be easier.



I'm sorry some of you seem to not be doing too well and I hope things improve.



Trisha ..:)

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 09:38 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 11:29 AM

Morning. I'm feeling grotty, I don't know if it's covid but whatever it is, my family don't want to catch it so they're not visiting today :(

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 11:29 AM

And welcome mail!

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 11:38 AM

Sorry to hear that tamo
Do they test you for covid there?
At my usual hospital we got tested twice a week.
There is a lurgy going around though! I had it last week. Pretty much everyone i know has had it!
Hopefully it will pass quickly.

one_step_closer 06-10-2022 04:36 PM

Hi everyone, quiet in here. How are your days going?

I watched Hocus Pocus 2, I don't know if I liked it I'm not good with opinions. It was watchable but not something that I'd say everyone has to watch.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 05:02 PM

Hey lindsay

I enjoyed hocus pocus 2. Not as much as the orginal obviously!

I'm ok. I'm pleased my nail lady has managed to fit me in only a week after my orginal appointment was meant to be. Which is a massive deal as she gets booked up months and months in advance. Stupid 'urgent' cardiology appointment messing up my plans :plain:

Anyway. How are you?

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 05:30 PM

I tested negative for covid, it must just be a tummy bug. The doc is writing me up for something anti vomiting so I'm going to ask for that between eating and meds, when i felt sick yesterday, so hopefully I can keep everything down.

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 05:31 PM

I'm glad your nail lady can fit you in.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 05:32 PM

Glad it's not covid tamo.

Thank you

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 05:48 PM

They finally got hold of swabs and I am negative :) but I was sick when I did the throat swab, ugh. One of the HCAs was really sweet and has given me a ginger tea and been very sympathetic.

tamobhuuta 06-10-2022 05:50 PM

Hmm, two slightly different posts there. Make of them what you will...

one_step_closer 06-10-2022 05:55 PM

Your nail lady must be good, Beckie. I'm glad you managed to rearrange, will you get halloween themed nails? I hope your cardiology appointment goes well.

I'm sorry you're not well, Tamo. I hope it passes soon. Be kind to yourself.

I've had a different day because I watched a film and it's making me anxious etc that it wasn't a normal day. It's a bit pathetic.

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 06:11 PM

That was lovely of the nurse.

Yes she's amazing!
I haven't decided on what to get yet. I have a few pictures saved to my phone!

It's not pathetic at all lindsay.
Changes in routine can be really hard. I struggle with it sometimes.

one_step_closer 06-10-2022 06:15 PM

Thanks. It feels like a huge deal even though it's really not. I can't get my support worker to understand why I can't just do more with my life. I'm sorry you feel like this sometimes too, you are amazing with going to work and all your appointments etc. You're the best. :-) I'll look forward to seeing your nails!

Cacoethes 06-10-2022 06:17 PM

I totally get that. Some people really don't understand.
What works for one person will not work for another and we all have different capabilities.

Aww thank you so much! That means a lot <3

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 07:58 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 07-10-2022 11:50 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 11:54 AM

Morning tamo

I'm meh. Have a psych appointment at 12:30
But at least no work today

How are you? Feeling any better?

tamobhuuta 07-10-2022 12:13 PM

I hope your appointment is helpful. I'm still not great. I had an anti nausea med so I knew I could keep some breakfast down but I'm going to try something later without it, to see if I need it.

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 12:17 PM

Thank you

Sorry to hear that
I hope you manage to keep something down later!

tamobhuuta 07-10-2022 02:50 PM

I have kept down some snacks without anti nausea meds :) and I'm feeling much better, I've even changed out of my pyjamas. How are you getting on?

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 03:12 PM

That's great!

I'm ok. Been prescribed sertraline and just picking it up now.
Also got a call from cardiology. I have to have a heart scan at a very inconvenient hospital on a SUNDAY!!!
Going to take a train and two buses. Luckily the big towns have buses that run on sundays. All that for a 2 minute scan though!

one_step_closer 07-10-2022 03:21 PM

Hi everyone.

I hope the Setraline is useful, Beckie. You deserve to feel better. Wow that is a lot of travel to get to the hospital. It is lucky that you can get there on a Sunday though.

I'm glad you're feeling a lot better, Tamo and have changed out of your PJs. The little things can help.

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 03:45 PM

Thanks lindsay
Yeah i initially declined the appointment but then thought about it and i could probably get there. But i thought it was going to be at B (local hospital where my usual cardiology appointments are) but he said it is in L. Where i usually go when I'm IP. Same county but still rather far away! And also, i HATE that town! It is known throughout the entire country as being a shithole full of stabbings and drugs! It's a well known saying that the only good thing about it is the airport to get out of it! People can probably guess where it is now but idc because i think i have most of ryl on Facebook now and you all know where I live anyway XD

How are you doing lindsay?

tamobhuuta 07-10-2022 04:11 PM

I'm glad your health is being taken seriously, even though it is a pain.

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 04:44 PM

Thank you
Yes that is a good thing!

one_step_closer 07-10-2022 06:18 PM

Sounds like a lovely town to visit :crazy: I hope you get there ok and your appointment goes well. What are you doing this evening?

I'm a bit low. And really cold. I have a blanket with Crookshanks on top of it over my legs so part of me is warm at least.

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 06:26 PM

Indeed! It just sucks in every way.
I'm not doing much. Trying to learn some taekwando theory for my next grading. Starting this week I'm going twice a week now. I just want to progress faster!

Sorry to hear you're low. It is very cold. I also have a blanket. But no cat sadly!
It was raining here earlier even though its been sunny and mild all day! Very windy though

one_step_closer 07-10-2022 06:30 PM

What sort of theory is there, if you can explain? I can't imagine what it would include.

It's windy and rainy here too although it seems to have settled for now.

Cacoethes 07-10-2022 06:52 PM

For my next grading (yellow belt) it is usually 3 questions out of a possible 6.
The 6 are
What is the meaning of chon ji
What is low section in korean
What is the training suit called in korean
What is the training area called in korean
What is walking stance in korean
And what country is taekwando from. You can probably guess it's Korea XD
So really simple stuff. Although the meaning of chon ji is 'the heaven and the earth' you should really know the whole paragraph that goes with it too.
Plus we randomly get asked about the tenets of taekwando a lot.
The questions vary from grade to grade

I'm just glad my bins live somewhere sheltered from the wind! Can't be dealing with chasing bins and rubbish all over the place! Hoping it will have died down by bin day

Cacoethes 08-10-2022 07:12 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 08-10-2022 01:35 PM

Good afternoon. How's everyone's weekend started?

Cacoethes 08-10-2022 02:36 PM

Hey. Pretty good here tbh
Got a lot done this morning and have just come up to thr retail park to spend my birthday gift card and get a costa!

How about you?

tamobhuuta 08-10-2022 04:22 PM

Not great to be honest. I think D is annoyed with me because he asked if I was safe and I said yes then 2 hours later I was trying to leave the ward.

one_step_closer 08-10-2022 04:34 PM

I'm glad you're having a good day, Beckie. You deserve it.

I'm sorry to hear you're still trying to leave the ward, Tamo. Feeling safe can change over time so it's not your fault that you felt unsafe later on unless you were pretending to feel safe when you were first asked.

Cacoethes 08-10-2022 04:38 PM

2 hours is quite a while. Things change.
It's really not worth trying to leave. It literally never works, they are well used to people trying to dash out of the doors.
Even years ago before acute wards were locked it was tricky!

Thanks lindsay!

How are you doing?

one_step_closer 08-10-2022 04:42 PM

Not good. Sick of the struggle of life. Got everything on my to do list done anyway. I have to or I get really anxious.

What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Cacoethes 08-10-2022 05:04 PM

Sorry to hear that.
Well done for getting everything done

I'm just watching house
Not really much else to do!

Morning everyone!

Thank you ... means a lot to know I'm not alone. I'll start a thread if I can even put into words how I"m feeling; which is unlikely as my mind is scattered to be honest. Very worried.



Thank you again and I hope everyone is doing ok, or managing anyway as best as can be.

I'm on sertraline 100MG and I think you'll start to feel better and the side effects are nowhere near other ads.



I hope your appointment tomorrow.

I feel the same about the struggle, hate to say that and I know that doesn't help you, but maybe to know your not alone. Yeah, have to keep busy sometime and anxiety starts to increase.

I hope you can find something to enjoy, or, at least distract from your issues.

Cacoethes 08-10-2022 05:24 PM

Usually when i start a thread, i ramble on for what feels like forever. I still get useful support though. Worth a shot! :)

Thank you. I picked up the sertraline this morning. I'm just a little worried about mania! Anti depressants have sent my mood too high before and can't be dealing with that!

one_step_closer 08-10-2022 05:26 PM

Hi Trisha, I hope you can find the words to allow you to express yourself and get support, even if you think the words are scattered and unclear. We will try our best to support you.

I've yet to watch House, Beckie. I was watching Greys Anatomy but now I mostly watch The Office.
