I'm on here because there's a commercial break during Celebrity Big Brother's Little Bit on the Side which I'm currently doing.

Also worrying that my taxi home is going to show up or not.

Friday nights are great for staying in, especially if you're working throughout the week. Because you've got that lovely feeling of knowing you're off for two whole days, so you can really enjoy the evening, stay up late watching films, know you can sleep in the following morning AND you still have Saturday night to go out.

What you watching elab?

I'm just pottering about online. Unsurprisingly haven't really been able to fall asleep easily this week, so have to wait until my face is hitting the keyboard. Why are worries and fears always magnified at night time?

Yeah, Fridays are mint for that. Although since I became dole scum one day blurs into another with horrifying ease so the weekend is kind of meaningless to me at the moment

You could speed up the process by getting someone to hit your face with the keyboard. Voila! Earlier bed time

Swinging between a Japanese film and a Korean TV series. Latter is pure pulp - just happens to be subtitled.

At night? Sun makes us smile, new day bobbins. More distractions, sorting out the day.

Night - it's just us and our head and worrying too much.

There are times when they just yell and gibber, so I just have to shrug my shoulders and wait for someone to put a sentence together. Although sitting in an office by yourself, talking out loud about having morning glory when you need a wee at this time of night, is slightly surreal to say the least.

Not sure if my parents would oblige, I might just have to try faceplanting down the stairs.

I remember the feeling very well from being on the dole. And infact I've been off my work since the start of November due to these stupid health problems, so know exactly what it's like. The frustrating thing is, I'd been in to see my manager last week to tell him I'd be ready to return to work at the start of February...... Nope!

Longest period I had off work was 3 months because of a car crash - I was so fed up I went back far too early (and paid for it over the next couple of years). You'll be champing at the bit by the time you get near to going back.

It's been a real education for me, because I hadn't even had so much as a fortnight without working since I was 21. I would never have thought it possible to watch so much Horror Channel that I start going "Seen. Seen it. Seen"

That, and sending out stuff about vaginas earlier today. I'm definitely heading for disciplinary action.

Tell me about it.

Not only do I miss a routine and point to my day, but a lot of my workmates are actual mates. So I really miss hanging out with them all and seeing them on a daily basis. Not to mention the fact I missed out on the Christmas night out, and am currently missing out on loads of arranged trips to climbing walls and hills. I was so excited about going back to work, and when I went in on Friday I was so happy to be seeing everyone again. We were going to start me off on half days to see how I got on, because I've recovered well from the last op, but I was cautious about pushing it incase I did what you ended up doing, and suffering for doing too much too soon.

Then that very same day I got told I'd need more surgery. So instead of moving back into my flat on Sunday, I was there picking up more stuff to bring to my folks house. If the op goes well, I'm looking at returning to work in April at the earliest. That's so far away.

I watch the Horror Channel far too much anyway. Also, they do show Pontypool a lot.

Although there were still a couple of people around I had a similar problem - I was back home in Glasgow and all my mates were in London, and the old Glasgow ones mainly scattered all over for work.

All this modern tech makes it a lot easier to keep in touch now but it's going to be really frustrating for a bit - you'll concentrate on getting better, then get annoyed it's not happening sooner and, if able, start kicking things.

That does actually help you know. As long as you choose the right thing. Not, like, a wall eg

Frustration is right. I remember getting to the point in my current recovery when I'd be sitting down watching a film or reading stuff online and I'd completely forget I'd had major surgery and would feel totally fine and start thinking about doing this or that.... and then remember when I tried to stand up that it would be a long time before my body would actually let me do any of it.

I guess I know what to expect for the next op. Which on one hand is good, because knowledge is power so they say, but I just don't feel like I have the energy to go through it all again.

You know yourself that's night-time and frustration and a bit of depression talking though. Tomorrow you'll feel a bit stronger and plow on because we generally always do.

One of the things the NHS can't really afford to help with is the care of patients heads around these things - even just a helpline to chat before operations. I've always thought that'd be really useful. A lot of charities do provide something. When my dad was diagnosed we discovered all these local help groups or places where he could just go sit and have a cup of tea and be with people who understood how pissed off you'd be at various stages because they'd gone through it too.

I guess it depends if you're into the support group thing though. He didn't feel massively comfortable with it. An old friend loved it though - they all used to go on long paced wanders to bitch about how they felt, out of the hearing of anyone medical.

The absolute worst thing about living alone is having no-one to turn the heating on for you coming in from work. FUCK ME this house is cold.

If the ghost would stop mucking about with Jr's toys and master the central heating for me instead, I'd be much more grateful for its presence.

That's very true. Which is why it's bit of a vicious circle this whole staying up late thing is. Can't sleep because I'm worried, so stay up until I'm impossibly tired, but just worry more, and then can't get to sleep.....

I have certainly thought about the support group idea, particularly for the aftermath of the surgery which is when I'm going to find things really hard going. However at the same time, speaking about it all doesn't particularly help me, because I could talk about it until the cows come home, it's not going to change what I have to go through. But perhaps speaking to somebody in the same situation might make me feel differently.

Maybe write down a list of rules and explain that in return for not charging rent you'd be happy if it could stop giving you the willies and do something more constructive instead.

Teehee, I said willies.

My mum would be ashamed of me if she ever heard me say this, but I think I could very happily do nothing for a long time.

Damn bills keep getting in the way though


You'd be surprised.

I'm bit of a contradiction myself - on one hand I can be exceptionally lazy and really enjoy sitting/lying down doing nothing but watching films for days on end, but other times I can't handle the thought of not being out there and climbing hills or enjoying the outdoors.

I always thought if I had loads of time off I'd be very content. What actually happens is all your days blend meaninglessly into one long tedious day.... You have no routine or appreciation of time. You can't actually appreciate a lot of things that you used to, because if you're not working at all a weekend is much the same as a weekday to you. And so on .....

The absolute worst thing about living alone is having no-one to turn the heating on for you coming in from work. FUCK ME this house is cold.

If the ghost would stop mucking about with Jr's toys and master the central heating for me instead, I'd be much more grateful for its presence.



Maybe write down a list of rules and explain that in return for not charging rent you'd be happy if it could stop giving you the willies and do something more constructive instead.


Honestly, if it would do the ironing and hoovering it could haunt the shit out of me.

Wasn't there a sitcom like that on the BBC years and years ago?

Bet Matty's been subtitling worse than that tonight. Still - he's safe home now, away from the scary reality show people


There's two of them who, in the house, have amalgamated into one character called Speidi. I don't know who, why, or why anyone would care?

I've probably said this a thousand times before on this thread, but I'll say it again...

THE DOG OWNERS IN MY VILLAGE ARE FUCKING ASSHOLES!!!

Fuck. Fuck.

I've just realised that exactly a year ago today was the last time I saw my brother-in-law alive.


Fuck. That is a weird feeling.
