You are an absolute darling, truly!
If I need to take you up on this I'll let you know in the next few days 💛💛 the crampy pain is here but the real deal is yet to arrive. I've never described a period with such positivity 🤣
Who’d have known this is the direction the SOD thread would go ey? 😂 We started out dissecting their selling of childhood, Burton jeans and haunted house & now here we are, offering to send menstruation products through the Royal Mail because a virus is ravaging the country. Honestly though please do say - it’s no bother I’ve got a few first class stamps at home and I figure I could lay them out like a letter and just pop it in a post box? Good luck with your period in these trying times though, fuck cravings when you’re too scared to nip round the shop for fear of getting struck down by the virus??

Also may be speaking too soon but I had the Ocado count down of doom on my work laptop all day and shockingly managed to secure a slot for tomorrow if anyone else is trying. I’ve heard other people getting slots for other supermarkets if they log on at midnight? We’re still getting the bulk of our food from a meat man & a fruit/veg place so I’m 90% vegetable now. I’m running low on jam & a croissant is a long but distant memory so really excited for them. We also got pizza for Friday night 💅🏻 Bet none of this comes but for now dreaming of junk food 🥰

Also is anyone else now properly socially isolating, not just distancing? I don’t trust ppl are taking this seriously enough and don’t wanna catch their covid down the shops so we’re not leaving for shit apart from my hosp appts. Wondering if it’s good for our mental health tbh :/

Haven’t left the house since Friday afternoon 😬
We do have a garden though, so am lucky - also live in the middle of nowhere. Husband ventured to shops for supplies and he came back with a belated Mother’s Day present (chocolate) god love him

Last night one of the insta mama/blagger/fluencers had put on their stories about giving their freebies to NHS staff and had tagged a load of others....bet they’re fuming they’ve been pressured into giving their free shit away! After all, they’ve worked hard for that!
I used to love following finlay fox, but it’s always an ad

And also, as a nurse, the last thing I want is your sloppy seconds! Infuriating
Ps I am a long time lurker, not really a poster, but sending big love to you all. Here is Australia things aren’t as bad, I feel our hospitals are starting to ramp things up (cancelled non urgent surgeries so we can train for the pandemic). Reading this has been a reprieve through the anxiety. Xx

Ahhh I will definitely let you know- the curse is imminent and it is also late so it's gonna be a big one 🤣

Yes!! This thread has seriously covered more subject matter than Panorama. We are a bunch of first class observationists, researchers, script writers, authors, reporters, digital photo editors, comedians, journalists.... AND we've worked from home for free for fucking weeks and through our various tragedies, health issues etc.... We are the frontline. The FODline and FOD bless us all 💛

I craved a banana today, lame AF but being so sick this past week, I've actually lost about a stone in weight 🙄 but my appetite was poor before I went off work.

I've isolated fully since I was last in work so a week tomoz. I have seen groups of ppl walking by today. All of a sudden everyone lives in a huge family 😡

Hope you’re feeling better? You need a moon cup. Or a moon cup review. Someone to tell you which one to buy. I miss Clammie.

I haven't left my teeny studio flat for 6 days. The last few days were wobbly but today was good.

There's a brand called Time of the month that produce 100% biodegradable pads that they post to you.

I actually ordered some for my sister. They do also sell tampons.

I do have a referral code which will get you 25% off your order.

XDDD

Thank you for all the love and laughs. I'm giggling like a loon.

Oh lovely! Some insta twat giving away some (probably slightly used) shit that she didn't pay for, didn't need and most probably didn't want to someone working there arse off in the real world. 🙄 They probably don't want your #gifted tat anyway love. Heaven forbid these idiots put their hands in their own pockets and do something actually charitable! These knobs infuriate me!



14. Them prancing around to a tik tok video "to keep up moral/lighten the mood/keep positive"
Sick to death of that tiktoc shit, I thought it was for young teens🤳

"A big one" hahaha oh you poor thing, hopefully it'll concentrate itself into day 1. Although if you've been unwell maybe your body has been delaying it to help you through this rough patch :( Do you think you've had covid? The loss of appetite is one of the symptoms too isn't it, apparently diarrhoea too. I thought of you when I went for my scan because one of the nurses there had it, had recovered & was now back at work... It's disgusting the lack of testing & support for HCPs.

Don't re: people, all a bunch of cunts, this is why I'm wholly isolating. There's a bloke who runs a building firm who lives in the close opposite my house, he had all the young lads that work for him out on the green having beers?! Groups of teenagers hanging about too - the thing is if they want to infect & potentially kill their own families that's fine w me, they've clearly thought this through and the pros of fingering each other down the local park outweigh the cons of ur 80 year old nana dying in strict isolation (with no ventilator) then her poor corpse flung into the new mega morgue they're building down the excel centre - but we're the mugs that'll be stood next to them in the fucking corner shop and contract it!

Sorry should probably direct this to the covid thread but that places scares me, would like to sleep again.

If the truth be told, I was cheating on you guys with that thread. I stayed away for one day (today) and honestly do feel much better.
 
@rainbowlemon stay away bless you, ever since I heard these graphic stories in the news (won't repeat) I've actually had quite bad anxiety about it. Today it's been the news about the Excel centre, my driving test route was round there so I'd do it twice a week (for months and months, it took loadsa goes to pass thanks to the A13 loool) and it's a huge fucking stretch of road/actually massive, now it's a huge old holding room & morgue. It's terrifying, it all pops into my head several times a day and I'm aware I can't process just how huge a risk it is, but do any of us need to... Sorry this sounds so bleak but maybe we all need to pause on the news for the next few weeks cos none of this can be good for our MH.

When I was a child I had OCD so am familiar with the intrusive thoughts and how tough they can be to handle.

You need to do what's best for you and If staying away from reading the news altogether and all the live updates helps there's no shame in that.

I don't think he'll do anything to be honest. Brand OD has always been about themselves.

I doubt he’d do anything unpaid. I do quite like the idea of him starting the ‘Band Aid’ of Instagram though. It might help his career and give him some positive headlines. Alas, we are doomed to instructional videos on hand washing and his guidance to stay indoors.
