Afternoon everyone, hope you all have a good day.

Have you managed to speak to anyone yet NP?

How are you feeling today Beckie? That's a shame about the coffee.

Hi Tamo, what are you getting up to today?

Hi Dawn, has the cold eased a bit today or still the same as last night? I think we're meant to get snow at some point this week but that could be a lie.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 03:14 PM

It's much warmer than last night Lindsay. It's great to see you posting. I have yet to venture outdoors but I should post my christmas card to Australia.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 03:43 PM

Posted my card to Australia. It's not too bad outside. Before anyone says it's too early to post Christmas cards Melbourne Airport is experiencing delays due to covid according to Royal Mail's website. Unfortunately the recipient lives in a suburb of Melbourne hence why I am posting it early.

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 04:05 PM

Ooh my present to Lorraine has been despatched. I hope she likes it. It's a model of Molly. Entirely hand made.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 04:06 PM

I was feeling ok until earlier when I collapsed in the bathroom. And then work messaged to tell me I need a GP note to say I'm fit for work before I'm allowed back. So stressed

not_so_insig 22-11-2021 04:12 PM

Oh no Beckie! Hope you're better soon.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 04:58 PM

Thanks Dawn

one_step_closer 22-11-2021 05:46 PM

That sounds like a lovely present Dawn. I'd love one of those portraits where they put your dog/cats head on a different regal body. They are quite expensive though.

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time Beckie. You deserve a break. I hope someone can help you get on top of things.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 06:24 PM

Thanks lindsay

How is everyone?

nonperson 22-11-2021 06:46 PM

Oh Beckie that sucks so much. You don't need more stress on top of everything else =(

I've managed to get a prescription for my insulin, just need to find somewhere who has some in stock now... Will have to ring around some pharmacies tomorrow. But I was so shocked that the GP had a script ready for me to collect that I completely forgot to book a flu jab at the same time.

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 06:58 PM

Yep. They've just checked my blood pressure too and it's high. 155/96
Fun times

At least you've got the first step done!
Well done!

nonperson 22-11-2021 07:22 PM

Hardly surprising considering the circumstances. Do they think that's why it's high because of stress or anything else?

Thanks. I'm kinda proud of myself. Went to the chemist, talked the old lady behind the desk who didn't have a clue what I was talking about and then walked off...! Spoke to the pharmacist briefly but they hadn't made any progress. I was going to go home but decided to drop by the doctors, see if they had a script for me and they did! So I think that's enough for today. Phone calls tomorrow will be harder...

Cacoethes 22-11-2021 09:44 PM

They didn't even mention it was high!

You did very well and I am proud of you!

tamobhuuta 23-11-2021 11:33 AM

Good morning.

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:35 PM

Morning Tamo, how are you?

Cacoethes 23-11-2021 12:36 PM

You beat me to it this morning!

How are you?

Ninja post lindsay! How are you?

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:36 PM


How are you Beckie?

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 12:38 PM

You just ninja'd again, it should be your job!

I'm going to the gym group today and I'm quite worried because of my drowsiness. Have an appointment with my psychiatrist after the gym and I'm kind of anxious about it.

Cacoethes 23-11-2021 12:52 PM


Looks like im going to have to stay another night so I am annoyed.
Asked my mum if she could bring in some clothes for me because I feel gross.
So if she can I'm looking forward to a lovely shower and clothes change!

I hope the gym and psych appointment go ok
I can understand feeling anxious

not_so_insig 23-11-2021 03:05 PM

Afternoon all. I am waiting for the tesco man. I am flipping freezing.

not_so_insig 23-11-2021 04:45 PM

The tesco man forgot a tray of mine! Unfortunately it was mostly cat food. Cue me phoning customer service. He returned 10 minutes after the end of the phone call with my cat food. So my kitties should be ok for a while.

Cacoethes 23-11-2021 06:17 PM

My mum and sister just came to drop off some PJs and shower stuff.
Was nice to see them!

one_step_closer 23-11-2021 06:47 PM

I'm glad you got to see your mum and sister and that they brought you some PJs and shower stuff. I hope you have a nice shower. Are the showers there ok. In the psych ward I go to the showers are mostly cold then lukewarm then back to cold. But we complained and it was fixed at that point. I felt like crying when I needed a shower because I didn't want it to be cold.

That's a bit annoying Dawn. I'm glad you got the cats stuff in the end.

Cacoethes 23-11-2021 07:03 PM

Psych ward showers are the absolute worst!
The shower here is small but quite nice!
Decent flow and adjustable temperature
And it doesn't flood everywhere like psych ward showers tend to

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 09:19 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 24-11-2021 11:57 AM

Hi Cacoethes how are you?

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 12:07 PM

I'm ok thanks
Going home today!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 24-11-2021 01:16 PM

That's good news :) I'm ok, really need to put my clothes away.

tamobhuuta 24-11-2021 02:35 PM

I've done it! Both lots!

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 02:35 PM

Still waiting!

I find that really hard too

Well done!

tamobhuuta 24-11-2021 02:37 PM

What are they waiting for?

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 04:28 PM

It was just meds
But then I fell.
And had to have a surprise MRI scan which I have just got back from.
Now waiting for the results

tamobhuuta 24-11-2021 05:16 PM

Oh dear, how are you feeling?

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 06:10 PM

Bit fuzzy headed but ok.
Good news! MRI is normal and I am now awaiting the bus home!
I've only been in 5 days but it feels odd being back in the real world!

one_step_closer 24-11-2021 06:26 PM

I'm glad you're getting home Beckie, please take very good care of yourself.

How is everyones evening going?

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 07:51 PM

I will :)
Just arrived home!

How are you lindsay?

not_so_insig 24-11-2021 08:21 PM

Yay for being at home Beckie!

Cacoethes 24-11-2021 08:43 PM

Thanks Dawn!
It's sooo nice

Have you been up to much today?

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 09:31 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2021 11:18 AM

Hi Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 11:21 AM

I'm ok thanks
Was so good to be back in my own bed!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 25-11-2021 11:23 AM

I can imagine! I am ok, going for a blood test later. Do you have any plans?

not_so_insig 25-11-2021 11:25 AM

Morning Beckie. I have adulted and phoned the gas servicing people. No more phone calls for me today.

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 11:31 AM

No plans for me! Just washing and waiting for a gp call.
Also just paid my council tax.

Morning Dawn
Well done! Phone calls are hard!

not_so_insig 25-11-2021 11:34 AM

Thanks Beckie. It was made hard because my postcode begins with LL and the silly woman thought I was saying hello.

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 11:38 AM

That's annoying!
Mine contains QQ which people struggle with for some reason

not_so_insig 25-11-2021 11:45 AM

Plus she cut me off. Rude.

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 12:05 PM

That is very rude!

tamobhuuta 25-11-2021 12:10 PM

Well done both of you.

Cacoethes 25-11-2021 12:16 PM

Thanks tamo :)
