Trains are always fucked tbh...

First PCR of the pandemic for me. Pretty sure it's not Covid but don't want to take any chances as I work with older adults.


FidgetTheMidget

Good luck. Hope your results come back clear.


CheeKiang

Just had my first yesterday as well at the quay. Result came back negative today which was nice and quick. Sending you good vibes, hopes yours is negative too.

Half the people I follow on Instagram seem to have ADHD or strongly suspect they do now. This is all within the last few months. These people are varied and unconnected. Different genders, ages, social circles. People I know in real life and people I follow because they're artists/photographers/bakers etc. Anyone else noticed this? What's it all about?


meepmeep13

I am extremely skeptical about all these private ADHD diagnosis companies that have suddenly appeared, who presumably have all kinds of follow-on services to sell


Charlesworths

Could be Tiktok? 'In fact “learning you have ADHD on TikTok” is now such a common phenomenon that it’s become its own meme on the app.' https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/jun/04/tiktok-accidentally-detected-my-adhd-for-23-years-everyone-missed-the-warning-signs


freshoutoftime

To be honest, the likes of TikTok have fried attention spans and patience. Instant gratification is everywhere now, from social media, to porn, to food, to games, to TV. It's not particularly new, but it's definitely ramped up the last few years and lots of industries focus on this instant gratification when marketing to people. Loot boxes in games is a great example of that.

Oh wow! Interesting article. This makes sense.

For disorders on the spectrum in general, there seems to be a lot more awareness now of how they present differently in women. This increasing awareness probably makes people stop and think 'Oh shit, that's me!', especially after years and years of being told that they aren't on the spectrum because they don't struggle with emotions or aren't obsessed with trains. It's a bit of a domino effect too - if it's the same baker I follow then her Q&As on having autism really opened my eyes on my own wonky brain.* *No offence meant, that's just how I refer to my own weird behaviours.


still-searching

Haha I know who you mean, she's actually a friend of mine! She wasn't the baker I was referring to though 😅 it was someone off GBBO. That definitely makes sense, I've read a lot of articles about women and autism, late diagnosis, masking and stuff like that. I knew so many boys on the spectrum growing up but only one girl who was diagnosed with ADD (which I don't even think is a thing anymore?).


DennistounDadBod

I’ve convinced myself I’ve got it no idea why but everyone’s chatting about it


mrfredzzz

Hey, I thought the trains were fucked a few hours ago. Who unfucked them!? 😑


timlardner

It updates hourly. There’s a maximum length a post can be so if we pull a ton of information from ScotRail and it won’t fit, it’s just replaced with the trains are fucked message.


Thekdawggg

My boabie is rock solid over the prospect of this weekends F1.


so-naughty

If Lewis outqualifies Max then I can see there being some fun. I really hope qualifying is either Max/Lewis on P1/P2 or the other way around so we don’t get Bottas or Perez playing dirty with team orders.


Thekdawggg

I want to think it’s all Lewis. But idk. It’s stressful.


Charlesworths

I can't remember the last time I've been so stressed about a race!


KingdomOfLlamas

They've forced me into watching the full practice sessions now cause I'm so invested, can't bloody wait for tomorrow


Thekdawggg

Who you backing? Let’s argue about it. That’s what this season has become.


so-naughty

I want Max to win. Part of me wants him to win clean with no incidents so Lewis has nothing to moan about. But part of me also wants him to win and retire Lewis’s car in the process just because I’m petty.


Charlesworths

I think Lewis will win but I would like Max to win (though the past few races have been difficult to root for Max 😅) Whatever happens, I am glad we have a season which comes down to the final race and not decided with many races left to go.


Thekdawggg

This isn’t arguing. This is really well balanced. :/ Allow me. MAX CANT RACE HES SO PETTY! CRASHSTAPPEN! JOS IS A BASTARD.


Charlesworths

Sorry, I misunderstood. Trash talk mode activated. HAMILTON ONLY WINS AS HE HAS THE FASTEST CAR! MERC AND HAM ARE CONSTANTLY BLESSED BY FIA! Enjoy the qualifying!


Thekdawggg

Ahhh. The old MaFIA defence.

Everyone talks about the West End, Dennistoun, and the Southside neighborhoods around queens park. Rents in these areas seem quite high, I can't find nice-ish 2 beds for anything less than roughly £850 pounds without the flat looking like crap. Is this just the standard now, or maybe my standards are too high? I do want to live in an area with a younger vibe, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants, and would be willing to pay for it but just want to know if I'm missing out on any other areas or Glasgow that could be nice or "vibrant". I work from home so don't need to daily commute into the city centre but do like to go into town relatively fequently for the odd night out or a movie, museum, shows, gigs etc


Deadend_Friend

Cessnock is slowly being gentrified to be like the other places you mentioned but is a few years behind so it's not as expensive. It's only 10 minutes on the subway to the West End too.


SpermaTopfMitKase

Close sweaters near the court should be working well soon! The area is ripe for coffee and they even have a park with happiness.


Artemio_Germain

I'm feeling lousy: Dry cough, temperature, runny nose, tired, chills and fever dreams, etc. I've done LFT's three days in a row, but all negative. Don't think I've ever had a cold so bad. Is it doing the rounds just now?


Routine_Locksmith274

Get a PCR if you have symptoms. They are much more sensitive.


totheregiment

Really terrible colds circulating right now. Worst I've felt from one in years. They're playing catch-up after basically not getting a chance last year!


LordAnubis12

Just a note that lat flows are only really good for when you have no symptoms. Need a PCR if you're symptomatic


epinglerouge

This - you have a cough, get a PCR.


Artemio_Germain

Yeah, I've already ordered one. However, It's not a persistent hacking cough or anything. Just tickly and sporadic.


epinglerouge

Not what you want to hear but thats what the omicrom symptoms are...


Artemio_Germain

I'd be absolutely fine with that. I feel crap, but I'm hardly at deaths door, and it'd mean I'd now have natural immunity.


Crabbita

I’ve been absolutely floored with it since Wednesday. Got a PCR which was negative but whatever the hell it is is very nasty. I’m coughing like ratso rizzo.


esofagus

Why is it so fucking hard to be vaccinated in this town? I'm getting bombarded with texts and letters about my booster. But the only places available are in the outskirts of town, hard to get to, and I work 9-6 in the city centre, live in the city centre and don't drive. How hard can it be to have ONE, at least ONE SINGLE FUCKING LOCATION in central Glasgow? Is it too much to ask?


Crabbita

The mosque is very central. There are appointments available there next Sunday 19th.


esofagus

It didn't come up. I don't understand why?


Crabbita

You need to keep scrolling down towards the end. It’s listed as The Glasgow central mosque so it’s near the bottom.


esofagus

I managed, thank you so much! I booked for next Sunday at the Mosque 😃


Crabbita

Yay! Glad to help. I’m getting mine today : )


epinglerouge

Depending on how central your job is, the mosque is really easy to get to without a car. I had mine on a Saturday in Oct.


esofagus

Wait, you mean for your booster jab? That didn't come up as a possibility on the NHS Inform site. That would have been perfect otherwise - I had my second jab there.


servarius

I can't remember the exact process, but if you don't set any caveats when trying to book there actually seems to be more available. (Assuming they've not fixed it). I had been looking for after 5pm but only locations too far away came up. When I took that out I found somewhere local with spots at 6pm onwards.


esofagus

I managed, thank you so much! I booked for next Sunday at the Mosque 😃


epinglerouge

Yes, when I was there it was a mix of second and third vaccines and boosters. Give them a phone if you can rather than online, that's how I got mine there (mine was a third not a booster but its the same thing).


MommaNamedMeSheriff

My uni course has deemed the word 'mankind' sexist.


scottmaclellan

Replace every occurrence of it with 'huwomanity' and watch them spunk themselves senseless

Language evolves over time, shock.

Did big Nicky change any of the rules yesterday?

Household contacts of covid now have to isolate for 10 days regardless of vaccination status due to new strain.

Aye, she said your snibbed for the foreseeable.
