Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

Not really. At the mo i cba to get out of bed. (Have recently lost a good site for support, they've made it hard to keep in touch with people you met on their new site).

Your profile says you like films/netflix. Have you started any new tv shows or films?

Do you have a particular genre you like?

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to XxUrielxX

Personally, I kinda browse between genres. I like foreign cinema a lot.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

I like a few foreign ones, namely wuxia/martial arts. Do you speak lots of languages then? Or dont you mind watching subtitles?

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

I wish I spoke lots of languages! I can understand some French and Spanish, but not nearly enough to watch a movie without subtitles. I like the subtitles, dubbed always seemed strange to me.

I watched doctor sleep yesterday, was very good! Saw tenet last week at the movies (me and my bf had screen to ourselves). Terribly intense and confusing film!! I'm just watching a show called in the long run (uk). Its light and comical but episodes are very short, it's offputting.

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

Oh! I've heard about Tenet, was going to watch it soon. I'll look up doctor sleep

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

Oh cool- another stephen king movie- sweeet. I gotta watch that today!

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

Yep follows nicely on from the shining!

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

I need to get my hands on his books, to really see the difference in them from the movies.

Besides foreign films, I usually seek out horror, thriller, and mystery movies. I enjoy scifi shows as well.

I'm also that kind of person who rewatches things a thousand times.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

I'm not a big reader. (Though I'm aware of there tends to be contrasts between film versions.)

I like scifi too, thriller, musicals, action/adventure, comic, fantasy, chi/kids!

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

Oh man, I was a theatre kid in high school and in vocal. We did a bunch of shows, my school did massive musical performances. Cats, fiddler on the roof, Chicago, The producers. I fucking loved it.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

I did drama for a bit too! Did mozart for my exam piece. Loved it.

XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

What instrument do u play? Learned violin as a kid, but don't play anymore. I play the mandolin but someone stole mine so I gotta get a new one. Learned a little guitar but I suck at bar chords, lol.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

I played violin at school too then lost interest. I've dipped in and out of learning piano.

Sorry to hear somone stole your mandolin!! Rotten bu**ers!

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

Because of covid I've been binge watching shows on netflix.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

Well ive binged a lot of my personal watchlist, so now waitng for new seasons (to film/complete) or scraping the barrel to watch something I've not seen (new/old!).

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to XxUrielxX

Its been nice chatting with you. Gonna get up and get ready and eat something now! Then meeting my friend for a few hours. So may delay in replies. Any plans with your day?

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to Solow87

Gotta do laundry and general cleaning about the place. Been putting it off long enough.

Hope your day is nice!

I will! Pick me!

Hey. Just here not sleeping when I should be sleeping. What do you wanna talk about?

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Heyy! I dont mind topic. Food, tv/movies, weather?? I'm still in bed and cba to get up!

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Weather’s not a good one for me. We had nasty weather and fires that caused mandatory evacuations. What’s your favorite comfort food? I like homemade shepherds pie.

XxUrielxX
XxUrielxX in reply to BlueLlama

Comfort food for me is chocolate. I'm a big sweets fan. If I have to pick a savory food, it would be sushi.

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to XxUrielxX

Always a good choice. One of my favorites as well.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Oh we'll avoid that subject then, sorry to hear.

Well it was pizza, but given it up to lose weight (gained coz of lockdown/isolating/antidepressants 😡). My appetites been rubbish. Most of my comfort food is junk/takeaways so have had to cut back on them.

I like jacket/baked potatoes!

I like sweet stuff, cakes, biscuits.

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Mm. Sweets are my weakness. My diet does not like them. It’s really hard to stay away, but it’s a little easier when I see progress happening.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Annoying isnt it! I was saying to a friend the other day I'd have donuts almosy everyday if i could!

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Its been nice chatting with you. Gonna get up and get ready and eat something now! Then meeting my friend for a few hours. So may delay in replies. Any plans with your day (other than sleep)?

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Wish I could sleep some more. Probably won’t though. At this point my plans consist of waiting for the officials to tell me if we can go home. Right now it’s three humans, two dogs and a cat in a 26 foot fifth wheel rv. Not much to do. Have fun with your friend.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Ohh that explains a lot!! Have you been on a trip??

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Wish I was. The dogs think we are. Forest fires are burning near our home.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

(Sorry for the delay. Had a good afternoon but eve went downhill.)

I'm sorry I'm not thinking, I presume the RV is emergency accommodation. Sigh. Ridiculously hard and trying time for you, i can only imagine. Have you managed to get a nap? Any update from the officials?

(It's night here so I'll be going sleep soon).

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Two naps already, and it’s only 3pm.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Heyy. Soo I think your 8hrs behind me, i believe its 4.05am now. Are you still in the RV??

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

I’m on pacific time. Yes. We’re all still crammed in the rv. We’re parked in the dead end at my sister’s house, and they made dinner for all of us last night. Nice to eat at a table. But we’ve made it through another night. I’m thankful for that. My cat has decided to take a nap on my bed, so I’m stuck here until he decides to move.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Aw sounds like it gave you all a little break as well. What did you have to eat ?Glad your sisters close by for support.

Oh kitty!

Are you able to watch any shows/films to keep you distracted/entertained? Or do puzzles/play games?

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

We had pork chops and potatoes and carrots. My dad mostly watches the news and keeps an eye on the fire scanner. But I brought my flute, so I might play some later today.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Oh cool! How long have you played for? What tunes do you like to play?

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

Since...ummm...seventeen years. Gosh, I’m old. I mostly play things I like. I’ve got a lot of traditional Celtic music, some newer music, the Sound of Music, Christmas. I Go outside and play YMCA when I want to annoy the annoying neighbors.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to BlueLlama

Haha! 😉

You're a pro then! 😆 and play a nice variety!

BlueLlama
BlueLlama in reply to Solow87

If I was smart, I’d have brought the much more travel-sized harmonica.

Sure same here

kenster1 in reply to Solow87

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1

kenster1
kenster1 in reply to Solow87

yeah its harder all the time dementia is horrible like to take her up fruit and sweets it helps with the conversation.hope your feeling better.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1

Mostly tired, achy and drained today. Been in bed all day. Have had brief naps but neighbours have been noisy.

Sorry to hear about your aunt. I've a little experience/training with it. Glad that there's something that helps you both on visits.

I noticed you've been on this site for a few years too. Mind if i ask do you have much/any support from family/friends/nhs/social services etc?

kenster1
kenster1 in reply to Solow87

my mum and sister helped when my son died but my mum is gone now so is my dad but we had a difficult relationship my 2 friends helped with my son we where neighbours and grew up but both of them died with heart defects(brothers).been to counselling a few times currently on a waiting list to go back.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1

Aww kenster. :( Thats lot of difficult holes made in your life to deal with/to bear. I'm sorry to learn your son has passed on. I've experienced this tragic loss through a cousin and an ongoing acquaintance.

Having bpd I sense a feeling of some abandonment, would you agree? And wondering if you struggle with friendships too?

Are you still in touch with your sister?

Which counselling service are you waiting on? (I've been through them all!)

kenster1
kenster1 in reply to Solow87

yeah me and my sister live in the same street got 2 brothers but we don`t talk yeah any loss is difficult but a child its hard got friends yeah but I feel out of place a lot so its hard.waiting for CBT but it could be months.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1

Glad you still have your sis close by. I don't have a relationship with any of my siblings (1 full sib and 4 half sibs!)

I meant is it insight, trent pts or letstalk? And did you have cbt before? None of them or cbt have worked for me. Though insight did put me on track for my bpd diagnosis!

kenster1
kenster1 in reply to Solow87

done CBT before seemed to work then but the last time I wasn`t offered it so its been about 5 years maybe.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1

Fingers crossed for you that get someone soon! The waiting game always sucks!

Do you have any hobbies? Interests that keep you going/pass the time?

kenster1
kenster1 in reply to Solow87

yeah hillwalking keeps me going good to get out and away for a few hours just me and the dog sometimes my son.

Solow87
Solow87 in reply to kenster1
