I just googled elfbar600. It looks pretty nifty but i ain't keen on all those fruit flavours. I am a spearmint kind of person myself. Also, the fact that it only contains 600 puffs and then goes dead would stress me out majorly o_o

I need my battery powered vape!!!!

Also, i am tired. How are you this morning, Beckie??

tamobhuuta 05-04-2022 10:48 AM

Hi Cacoethes, hi Zurg. How are you?

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 11:14 AM

Hey zurg!
Yep that's totally understandable!

I'm great thanks! Though not looking forward to another boring ass day!
How are you apart from tired?

Hey tamo! How are you?

tamobhuuta 05-04-2022 12:09 PM

I'm ok. Just waiting for LFT so i can get my meds.

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 12:26 PM


Just had blood taken again. Its been every day since last Tuesday!!! My poor vein. Don't know what I'll do when ol' reliable gives up on me!
My sodium is low again :plain:

tamobhuuta 05-04-2022 12:35 PM

You sound very unwell :( I tested positive for covid.

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 12:39 PM

Nah I'm good!

Oh no! That's not good! Are you feeling ok?

Zurg 05-04-2022 12:48 PM

Oh noes Tamo!!! The plague seems to catch us all eventually :-(
I recommend lots of tea, snacks and naps!!! At least you have an excuse to stay at home and avoid people and people-y places ;-)

I hope your vein survives, Beckie!!! Is it sore??? You'd Think it would be after constant blood samples for a while….???
Against boredom i recommend getting into all sorts of shenanigans. Like putting your clothes on the wrong Way and see how long it takes before someone figures it out. And coffee!!! And vaping!!! And Facebook!!! Actually, just carry on like normally because that's basically my advise…

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 02:26 PM

I agree with zurg!

Nah not sore. There's so much scar tissue there now that i actually don't feel it at all when they do bloods!
That's pretty much what i do anyway
And wind up the staff of course! XD

tamobhuuta 05-04-2022 02:46 PM

I felt horrible yesterday but today is better. I love excuses to isolate!

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 02:51 PM

I'm glad you're feeling better!

Zurg 05-04-2022 03:12 PM

I hope you'll be on the mend quickly Tamo. You don't have to let anyone know though…. You can just keep self isolating if you prefer to stay at home!!!!

And Beckie, it's the staff's own fault that they are being played. They should offer proper entertainmemt or legit activities so people wouldn't get bored.

Cacoethes 05-04-2022 03:29 PM

It totally is!
And they're so easy to wind up too XD
There have actually been no groups on today!
They just told me to watch tv!
I think i would be more bored watching crappy daytime tv!

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 09:44 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 06-04-2022 11:40 AM

Hello Cacoethes, how are you?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 11:50 AM

I'm good thanks! Apart from being bored af!


tamobhuuta 06-04-2022 11:56 AM

Still feeling sorry for myself with covid.

Is there anything you do at home that you can do?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 11:58 AM

Awww :(

I could watch stuff on the ipad but i really can't focus!!!

tamobhuuta 06-04-2022 12:04 PM

Could you do mindfulness, meditation, something like that? I won't pretend it makes you feel better but it's a good way to spend some time!

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 12:14 PM

I can't sit still long enough! Lol!
And I'm not a huge fan of that kind of stuff anyway. It irritates me!

jacobevans 06-04-2022 01:47 PM

Hello everyone!
I agree with cacoethes, can’t sit long enough to meditate. Off lately all I’ve been thinking about is of dark chocolate Easter eggs instead of doing anything productive. But, no regrets we all get to have our days right?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 02:18 PM


one_step_closer 06-04-2022 04:13 PM

I've gone off Easter eggs for some reason. I used to eat loads way before Easter but I think I've had 2 a while ago and stopped.

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 04:18 PM

I love a good easter egg!
Maybe you overdid it? I know if i eat something loads i won't touch that thing again for ages!!!

one_step_closer 06-04-2022 06:09 PM

But that was a whole Easter ago I was eating them loads. I am trying to eat less snacks so it's not a problem anyway although talking about it is making me want one!

How is your day going Beckie?

Cacoethes 06-04-2022 06:14 PM

Fair enough!
Haha! Same :p

So so bored!!!
I tried watching some things on YouTube that are like 3 mins per clip and i can't even focus on them!!!
Maybe i have adhd?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 09:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 07-04-2022 11:35 AM

Good morning, how are you?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 12:57 PM

I'm good thanks!
I had a decent ward round for a change!
1 hour escorted leave today then if that goes well 1 hour unescorted 3x a week then home leave for a week next Thursday!

How are you?

Zurg 07-04-2022 02:54 PM

Oh yay, Beckie!!! That is awesome news :D

I could easily devour an easter egg right now…. But that would require me going to the grocery store to buy one and i reaaaally can't be arsed with that!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 03:01 PM

Thank you!!! :-D

Ah yeah that's effort!
I may get an easter egg on my morrisons walk today!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 03:18 PM

Great news Beckie!

I have a craving for Minstrels but I'm also trying to avoid snacks as much as I can so I didn't get any. Now I'm sad.

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 03:51 PM

Thank you! :-D

I love minstrels!!!
Haven't had them in forever!

Zurg 07-04-2022 04:50 PM

Nooooo Linds!!!! Avoiding snacks is a type of self punishment that no one can condone!!!! I say give in to all your snack-ish desires!!!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 05:13 PM

I've been out and i got myself an easter egg!!!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:08 PM

I'm trying to be healthy Kat, don't encourage me!

What egg did you get Beckie?

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:19 PM

I got a creme egg one!
I love creme eggs!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:23 PM

I hope you enjoy it.

I prefer the malteasers ones and the chocolate on the egg tastes really good too.

Zurg 07-04-2022 06:23 PM

Mmmmm… Easter eggs!!!! But still not enough cravings to go to the shop. It's raining too. And cold. And windy. Definetely too much effort!!!!

I hope you enjoy your creme egg, Beckie!!!

Linds, being healthy still allows for snacks in moderate amounts ;-)

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:25 PM

Moderate amounts! I think that's a lie!

That does sound like too much effort Kat. Maybe you can get one another day.

Zurg 07-04-2022 06:27 PM

To be brutally honest, i'm not really a sucker for chocolate. But crisps on the other hand….. and cake!!!!!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:34 PM

Oooh i could really go for some crisps right now!

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:36 PM

Crisps and cake are good too. Do you have favourites Kat?

You're going be stuck with that craving now Beckie, until you can get some crisps!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:40 PM

I knoooow! D:

one_step_closer 07-04-2022 06:46 PM

It's a bit like having a song stuck in your head. Which has just reminded me of the avocado song. Great!

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 06:54 PM

Haven't thought about that song in forever!

Zurg 07-04-2022 07:46 PM

An entire song about avocados???!!!?? How utterly fascinating!!!!

My favourite crisps are sour cream and onion. Favourite cake is carrot cake. Mmmmm…. I could eat some snacks now. Except i can't because i had a huge piece of lasagna for dinner and i'm still full :P

Beckie, go and and pester the staff until they provide some crisps!!!! That is not an unreasonable request. A craving for crisps is serious business

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 08:02 PM

Sour cream and chive is the best pringles flavour!
I'm currently craving salt and vinegar!!!
Carrot cake is also awesome! I don't think i have a favourite cake. All cakes are great!

Haha! I don't think they'd react too well to that because it's notes time!
I *could* order from morrisons but I'm trying not to spend anymore money!!

Zurg 07-04-2022 08:40 PM

Pah!!! Notes time!!!! It's clearly evening snack time and that should be respected and held in highest regard;-)

Cacoethes 07-04-2022 08:40 PM

It totally should!!!
But nurses really have the wrong priorities!
