Afternoon everyone.

I'm sorry things aren't going the way you'd want them to Beckie. But I hope that whatever happens helps you to live a better life and you can look back and realise people were doing their best for you.

How are you Tamo?

Cacoethes 21-01-2022 12:36 PM

Thanks lindsay <3

How are you?

one_step_closer 21-01-2022 12:41 PM

I got up at 10.30am which is my goal for a while so I'm feeling good about that although worried it was just a one off. I don't want to be in bed any later.

Cacoethes 21-01-2022 12:43 PM

That's good :)
I understand the worry, but you've done well today and that's important!

tamobhuuta 21-01-2022 12:49 PM

You're on your way osc, even though there might be some steps backwards.

one_step_closer 21-01-2022 03:16 PM

It's such a stupid problem to have. I am stupid. But thank you for your encouragement.

How are your days going?

Cacoethes 21-01-2022 03:50 PM

It's not stupid and you're not stupid!!

I'm half sleeping on the sofa
So tired

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 08:08 AM

Morning everyone

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 09:37 AM

Morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 09:38 AM

Annoyed. Bored. Worried.

How are you?

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 09:50 AM

I'm good, just off for an eeg.

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 09:58 AM

Have fun getting the glue out of your hair afterwards! Lol

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 10:39 AM

Not looking forward to that!

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 10:48 AM

It is rather difficult!

nonperson 22-01-2022 12:29 PM

afternoon all.

Eek, hope it goes ok, tamo.

I'm cold and whiney - my heating is not working. >.<

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 12:41 PM

Good to have you back np!

Oh noooo!
Why does that always happen at the worst time of year?
Is someone coming to fix it?

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 02:09 PM

I had the EEG and it was fine but today I have been very spasmy, I couldn't make my lunch!

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 02:25 PM

How annoying!

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 02:36 PM

Argh I hate this! I need to wash the gunk out of my hair but I don't want to spasm in the shower.

nonperson 22-01-2022 03:05 PM

Can someone do it over the sink for you?

I need to go upstairs and attempt to wash my hair over the bath too. I seem to have intermittent warm water but not enough for a shower!

Beckie, I can call the plumbers in an emergency but I'm not deeming this an emergency so will wait until Monday if it doesn't fix itself by then.

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 03:08 PM

I could ask L. Hopefully the spasms will get better now I've taken PRN.

Cacoethes 22-01-2022 04:33 PM

I think it is an emergency!
No heating in this weather!

nonperson 22-01-2022 05:06 PM

I hope so, Tamo.

It's ok. I've borrowed a plug in heater. It's taken since 9:30 this morning to get from 12 to 16 degrees though... My bathroom towel rail can be turned on separately from the heating so that's working, I have a heated mattress protector so I'm toasty at night and the water isn't frozen so I can still wash my hair. It can wait until Monday.

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 05:52 PM

I showered and I didn't spasm :)

nonperson 22-01-2022 06:11 PM

Hooray! =D

shadow-light 22-01-2022 06:27 PM

we dont have any central heating and the pannel heaters have been broken for about 3 years, our landlord sucks. It's 13c in here at the moment, and that's with the fire on :blink:

usually doesn't bother me as I just dont seem to feel the cold, but for about 2 weeks now I have been CONSTANTLY freaking freezing and my hands/feet keep turing blue... I think it's my meds

Anyway, moan over :laugh:

How be people today?

nonperson 22-01-2022 07:01 PM

I guess I shouldn't be complaining then.

What's wrong with your fire?

shadow-light 22-01-2022 07:06 PM

Not sure, just doesn't seen to provide much warmth. There is an unused backboiler still in place behind it abd and wonder if it absorbs some of the heat... rarely get above 17-18c in this room. Usually we have fan heaters to help a little but electric prices are silly right now so rationing them

shadow-light 22-01-2022 07:06 PM

We own many blankets :laugh:

tamobhuuta 22-01-2022 09:08 PM

I sat under 3 blankets earlier.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 08:44 AM

Morning guys

tamobhuuta 23-01-2022 10:57 AM

Hi :) how are you?

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 11:11 AM

Not good at all


tamobhuuta 23-01-2022 11:15 AM

Hospital sucks. Are they looking after you?

I am ok. I need to put proper clothes on today because I'm going to Mass later.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 03:15 PM


I hope you start to feel better soon Beckie, even if you believe you won't. Are you occupying yourself with anything?

I hope you enjoy/enjoyed Mass Tamo.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 03:19 PM

Tesco are selling Easter eggs. I want one. I'll maybe get one as a reward if I'm up at 10.30am most of the week. I'd be embarrassed if people saw what I was buying though!

nonperson 23-01-2022 03:24 PM

I nearly bought a bag of mini eggs yesterday, Lindsay. Kinda wish I had. I don't think anyone would judge if you bought an Easter egg now! And I think that would be an excellent getting out of bed reward. =)

My hot water randomly fixed itself enough for me to have a shower which has improved my mood massively. Heating is still off but a shower was much needed.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 03:32 PM

I feel too unwell to occupy myself with anything
I can't really do anything apart from lay in bed, trying not to be sick.
Don't know what they did to me

Defo get an easter egg lindsay

Yay for hot water!

nonperson 23-01-2022 03:39 PM

That sucks, Beckie =( Maybe it's the stress of the situation causing you to feel so unwell. Have you ordered in a supply of Coke zero?

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 04:49 PM

Beckie, is this a med they want you to continue taking or was it a mistake? I hope the horrible effects pass soon.

I'm glad you had hot water for a shower NP. Do you think your heating will magically sort itself out too? Are you going to get in touch with someone tomorrow?

nonperson 23-01-2022 04:57 PM

Nah I don't think the heating will sort itself out. The hot water may have been a fluke. I'll email for a plumber tomorrow as soon as I get into work and they'll be able to look at it the same day.

one_step_closer 23-01-2022 05:03 PM

Are you warm enough for now?

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 05:15 PM

This was the mistake med lindsay

I have not ordered coke zero!
Tbh I don't feel up to it. Or even drinking it!

nonperson 23-01-2022 05:51 PM

Oh no, you must be really sick =( What if you order some and have it there ready for when you're feeling better?

Yeah I'm warm enough, Lindsay. Got a plug in heater, a million thermals and a cat on my lap. =P

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 07:57 PM

That may be a good idea.
I may be moved tomorrow though.
If there are beds anywhere

Glad you've warmed up np!

nonperson 23-01-2022 08:04 PM

It has taken since 9:30am yesterday morning to get this room up to 17.5 degrees though.

Cacoethes 23-01-2022 08:25 PM

That's grim!

nonperson 23-01-2022 10:07 PM

I'm pretty toasty now, it's fine.

It is 12 degrees upstairs though.

Cacoethes 24-01-2022 08:39 AM

Hope you managed to stay warm np!

Morning everyone
