That's not good!

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 02:51 PM

She said she had a stressful night lol

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 03:51 PM

Hey everyone.

Welcome Kat.

Poor 1:1 but not doing their job is not good.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 03:59 PM

Hey lindsay
How are you?

Yeah. Most of them do fall asleep tbh!
And it is very warm in here which doesn't help! And they're just sitting down all day.

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 04:03 PM

Most of my 1:1 people have managed to stay awake. I can only think of one who drifted off at points.

What are you getting up to?

I'm sleeping later than I want to again. Frustrated and hate myself. Done most of the things on my to do list though.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 04:08 PM

I've been watching stuff on the ipad and chatting to my roommate!
The time has passed quite quickly tbh!
I wasn't feeling good earlier but had lorazepam so I'm calmer now.

That's annoying lindsay. Do you just switch off your alarm when it goes off? You shouldn't hate yourself though. A lot of people find it hard to get up.
Well done for doing the things!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 06:01 PM

I'm glad you're doing ok and got the Lorazepam when you needed it.

Yeah, I have a sunrise alarm so when the light is on I know the alarm will go off soon so either I'm in the mood to unplug it and get up or unplug it and go back to bed.

Are you having dinner this evening?

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 06:06 PM

Thank you :)

Ah that's annoying.

I am! But i can't remember what i ordered though!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 06:11 PM

Is it the day before you order for the following day?

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 06:13 PM

No we order lunch and dinner in the morning after breakfast.
I actually have difficulty choosing! There is quite a lot to choose from!

one_step_closer 02-04-2022 06:15 PM

And how are you supposed to know what you'd like before hand? You might have changed your mind before lunch or dinner! I hope you have something tasty.

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 06:20 PM

Well, at least we have a choice!
In the psych wards it's just trays of whatever they have and hope you like it!

Zurg 02-04-2022 07:55 PM

I may be a step out of line but what use is a 1:1 if they keep falling asleep….???? I could personally get into lots of shenanigans if someone who was watching me fell asleep. Like, drawing funny eyebrows on the 1:1. Maybe tying their shoelaces together…..
Sorry!!!! The evil genious inside me is having a field day.

Tamo, i have a male canary and two zebra finches.
I also have fishes and a giant african land snail :D

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 08:20 PM

Unfortunately they are still fairly alert. They just nod off for a few minutes each time.
I'd so do that though!

Zurg 02-04-2022 08:41 PM

If you do Beckie, then pics are mandatory!!!!! Let them forever be present in the hall of shame on the internet. Mwuahahahahaaaaa!!!!!

Cacoethes 02-04-2022 08:42 PM

Oh yes definitely!

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 12:22 PM

Morning everyone!

one_step_closer 03-04-2022 02:57 PM


How are you all?

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 03:00 PM

I'm ok! Might be leaving today! Depending on blood results!
I hope i do because my roommate is leaving and i don't want to be stuck in a room with an old person!

How are you?

one_step_closer 03-04-2022 03:05 PM

I'll keep my brain fingers crossed for you.

I don't know how I am. Did most of my housework, will clean Crookshanks's bowls etc later, tried to exercise but my knees are sore. Anxious about what might happen next week about my benefits. At least no one gets in touch at the weekend.

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 04:00 PM

I will definitely be going today!
But when? I do not know!

Well done for doing the housework!
It's understandable that you are anxious.
I hope all goes ok with it

one_step_closer 03-04-2022 04:40 PM

Waiting to go is the worst, I hope you don't have to wait too long. Hopefully the next waiting to go will be you waiting to go home from the psych ward.

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 04:42 PM

I can only hope!!

one_step_closer 03-04-2022 04:45 PM

You'll get there. Keep fighting for your health.

I've put the heating on, feeling guilty but it's freeing. Will put it off again very soon.

Cacoethes 03-04-2022 06:35 PM

Thanks lindsay :)
I'm back at the psych ward now!

Why are you feeling guilty about it?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 09:30 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 04-04-2022 10:47 AM

Hi :).how are you?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 10:54 AM

I'm good thanks! You?

tamobhuuta 04-04-2022 11:02 AM

I'm feeling ill so I'm waiting for my covid results.

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 11:13 AM

Oh no!
Sorry to hear that!
Hope it's negative!

tamobhuuta 04-04-2022 11:39 AM

I'm negative :)

What are you up to?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 11:48 AM


I had blood taken and rambled at the doctor for a while lol!
Now ready for a very long and boring day!

tamobhuuta 04-04-2022 11:51 AM

What do you do to pass the time?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 11:52 AM

Listening to music currently!
Might watch something on the ipad later if i can focus!

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 12:45 PM

Is Facebook being weird for anyone else?!

not_so_insig 04-04-2022 03:05 PM

My Facebook is ok Beckie.

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 03:11 PM

Thanks! I've fixed it now! That was a tough few hours! XD

one_step_closer 04-04-2022 04:03 PM

Did you personally fix it Beckie. If so, genius!

I'm glad your test was negative Tamo, I'm due to do mine tomorrow.

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 04:08 PM

Haha! I wish i was that skilled!
Just googled whether it was down for everyone and apparently it wasn't so i just uninstalled it and reinstalled it!

How are you lindsay?

one_step_closer 04-04-2022 04:15 PM

That's still a smart idea :-) how could you live without Fb?

I'm still stressed about oweing money. It's not just my ESA that's affected it's my rent and council tax and I'm not clued up enough to get them sorted if people haven't done it already. I did get a McDonalds today though, a double cheeseburger, I don't feel like it was really worth it.

How's everything back on the ward?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 04:23 PM

I honestly didn't know what to do for those few hours!!!

I can imagine that's stressful. And to get it sorted yiu actually have to call these people which is no picnic!

Boring af!
But i have just opened a watermelon flavoured vape which is rather nice!
And found out my ward round is THURSDAY!
So long to wait!

one_step_closer 04-04-2022 04:26 PM

I like most watermelon flavoured things. Do you have a favourite vape flavour? Or have you not been using the vape for long enough. (Am I mistaken that you just recently started vaping?)

I hate waiting for ward round and anything really. Could you write things down that you want to say/ask since you have all this time to prepare?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 04:32 PM

I think the watermelon is probably my favourite so far!
Yep i only started vaping recently!

Good plan!
I'm sure I'll remember the main ask which is GO HOME!!!
But i do need leave for my booster vax on Friday!
Apparently it will absolutely 100% NOT be unescorted though which is a bit rude!

one_step_closer 04-04-2022 05:55 PM

I hope you can get your booster ok and the rest of your ward round goes well.

Do you get to vape on the ward?

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 06:07 PM


Yes we are allowed to vape on the ward!
I don't think we're allowed the ones you have to charge, only disposable ones

Zurg 04-04-2022 07:36 PM

A disposable vape??!!?? What is this sorcery????

I hope you can get it sorted Linds. Stressing over money issues is one of the worst kinds of stress. And yay for a double cheeseburger. I Think the last time i had McDonald’s was in 2019….. it's not that i dislike their food but i'd have to venture outside my immediate neighbourhood to find a McDonald’s. Like, into town os something like that. Ain't nobody Got stamina for that!!!!

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 07:42 PM

Haha! Yes! They are called elfbar 600. Because they have 600 puffs in them.

Just got a water bill for 184. Random!

nonperson 04-04-2022 10:20 PM

I have the kiwi one of those, Beckie.

Cacoethes 04-04-2022 11:33 PM

Haven't had an actual kiwi in ages!

I've just ordered pizza

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 09:43 AM
