I think its definitely best to try to keep the CPN/crisis appointment, a few mins late (as long as you let them know) may be ok, but not missing it entirely.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:30 PM

I've emailed nail lady. So hopefully she'll be able to fit me in a bit earlier!

shadow-light 11-01-2022 04:30 PM

i mean I am being a fully on hypocrite here... but I have recently learnt that the more you engage and the more you actually keep appointments and such the better they treat you in return

btw, this includes actually taking th eprescribed meds *looks knowingly*

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:34 PM

Yes true!

*whistles innocently*

shadow-light 11-01-2022 04:35 PM


hope the nail person gets back to you soon

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 04:45 PM

I'm sure she will!

Ugh I need to shower at some point

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 06:58 PM


I'm bored.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 07:00 PM


I know the feeling!

Have you been up to much today?

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 07:01 PM

Nah, got some of my observation done and played animal crossing because I'm obsessed since V bought me it for xmas.

You? Did you manage to shower?

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 07:02 PM

I've heard animal crossing is super addictive!

Yes I did!
Glad that's over and done with
I hate showers

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 07:05 PM

It is, it's terrible. For a game that doesn't have a story line the amount of time I spend playing it is shameful.

Yay for showering! I love the clean feeling you get after a shower, all tingly.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 07:15 PM

Jasmine plays it too
It does look fun!

The clean feeling is nice!
I just don't like actually being in the shower

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 07:25 PM

No, me neither. I always get cold really quickly, and it's always either too hot or too cold. I love having sensory issues :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 07:31 PM

Ah that sucks!
I've finally managed to get the temperature right in my shower!
But I hate it because of body image issues!
So I shower as quickly as possible!

shadow-light 11-01-2022 07:35 PM

I used to have animal crossing on my DS before I sold it! It really is oddly addictive

nonperson 11-01-2022 07:40 PM

I like being clean and I like the feeling of water in a shower and the process of wetting hair, washing hair, rinsing hair, washing skin, washing face, rinsing. I'm minorly obsessive about it and the order it all happens in. =/ And I always shower in the morning before work, it's always been like a bit of peace before going out into the chaotic world.

Funny how we're all different.

Oh and I ALWAYS put music on in the shower! Silent showers are freaky weird.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 07:42 PM

I had animal crossing pocket camp on my phone for a bit
That was quite addictive!

I hate showering in the mornings!
Don't know why!
I do do things in a very specific order though!

nonperson 11-01-2022 07:48 PM

I wouldn't be able to get up and go straight to work though. Or put tv on for a bit or something instead.

Does anyone play wordle? Not a game game as such.

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:03 PM

I can't shower in the mornings either, I'd much rather spend an extra 10 minutes in bed :P. Also, if you have showers at night it's supposed to help your sleep hygiene so I swapped from morning showers to evening showers in an effort to help me sleep. It oddly works, I read an article that if you have a bedtime routine of a toddler you sleep better so I do :P

Never heard of it np. Is it a phone game? I don't tend to have games on my phone, I prefer actual console games

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:11 PM

I get up and half watch tv and half random internetting.
But tomorrow I'm going to have to get up and, depending on what time I get up, go right into a psychologist appointment at 9am.
Thankfully online rather than having to go to the cmht for 9am!

I don't play that np! What is it?

I heard that too Alison!

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:18 PM

I usually get up and just chill out on my phone, I have a colouring in app that's good for mindfulness. It keeps me motivated to do mindfulness every day because you get achievements based on how many pictures you colour in, there's a new one every day and they have Disney pictures :P. You can also print them out if you want, although that takes up a lot of coloured ink so I don't tend to.

I hope your appointment goes ok tomorrow Beckie, good luck :)

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:35 PM

That sounds good!
Jasmine likes those apps too

Thank you :)

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:42 PM

I think what we've deduced from tonight Beckie is that I'm just a massive child :P

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 08:44 PM

Haha! Probably a good thing considering your career choice! :p

I can't really talk anyway. I watch CBBC every morning!

The Worst Witch 11-01-2022 08:53 PM

Probably :P

I haven't watched CBBC in years! Is it any good these days?

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 09:01 PM

Yeah it's not bad!
It's more random!
I like operation ouch. It's twin doctors (dr Chris and dr xand van tulleken, they've been on adult stuff too) and they're quite funny together. And it's educational!
And there's 'boy girl dog cat mouse cheese' which is entertaining. And the new danger mouse and dennis and gnasher!!!
But they've started putting BBC bitesize on during the day :plain:

nonperson 11-01-2022 09:21 PM

Learning is fun.

https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ It's a word game. You have to guess the word in 6 guesses or less but you get clues if any of the letters are right and in the right place or right but in the wrong place. There's a new one every day.

Cacoethes 11-01-2022 09:28 PM

Oh god I had a look and it confused me!
I have been very easy to confuse lately lol
It can be an issue at work sometimes!

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 08:24 AM

Morning everyone!

The Worst Witch 12-01-2022 09:06 AM

Morning :)

Good luck today. Let us know how you get on :)

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 09:50 AM

Heya :)

Just finished psychologist appointment

How are you?

tamobhuuta 12-01-2022 10:21 AM

Good morning :)

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 10:28 AM

Morning tamo :)
How are you?

The Worst Witch 12-01-2022 10:32 AM

Morning tamo

How did you get on Beckie?

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 10:38 AM

It was ok thanks
The psychologist is very nice

tamobhuuta 12-01-2022 10:41 AM

I'm glad the psychologist was nice. Do you know what kind of therapy you'll be doing?

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 10:56 AM

I don't think it's going to be any specific type of therapy.
Just general working on the main issues

tamobhuuta 12-01-2022 11:00 AM

Oh OK. I thought therapy was always specific :)

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 11:02 AM

Doesn't seem to be!

Do you have any plans for today?

tamobhuuta 12-01-2022 11:07 AM

A shower.

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 11:08 AM

Sounds good!

tamobhuuta 12-01-2022 12:10 PM

I'm clean!

one_step_closer 12-01-2022 03:19 PM

Your psychologist might work out what therapy could be good for you with time Beckie.

Well done with having a shower Tamo!

What's everyone doing with the rest of the day?

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 05:08 PM

Well done tamo!

Yes probably lindsay

I've just finished work.
One of my favourite customers bought me a drink today!

one_step_closer 12-01-2022 05:15 PM

So sweet. It's nice to be appreciated. :-D and you deserve it.

Cacoethes 12-01-2022 05:21 PM

Aww thanks!
It was really nice of him!
I was worried about getting something too expensive and he said 'i don't care, get champagne! Get a car, a holiday to majorca!''

Cacoethes 13-01-2022 06:19 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 13-01-2022 11:20 AM

Morning :) you're up bright and early! How are you?

Cacoethes 13-01-2022 11:25 AM

I was indeed!

I'm not great tbh!
Lots going on
But I have my eyebrow and nail appointment today!

How are you?

tamobhuuta 13-01-2022 11:29 AM

Sorry to hear that. I hope you enjoy your hair and nail appointment, it's good to be nice to yourself.

I am ok, I had a phone appointment with the neurologist, a portion of which was spent complaining and laughing about psychiatrists.
