Keeping positive :)

Keeping positive :)

First week of college done ! :)

Bit of exhaustion and aches at the start of the week. Had been ill the week before i started and almost decided not to go.

But all worthwhile to be doing something I love. It's really had a positive effect on my mood and my family think I'm looking alot better more lively lol (not as pasty ha) Feeling great for a change.

Hope everyone feels as well as they can x

Morning Davros

It seems a bit slack without a count down. I amazed myself I kept it up!

I'm on holiday for a week so I'll be mostly out of touch being exhausted (why do I do this to myself?)

Greetings from the fluffie holiday lair

Oh, I will. Among many other things I plan to visit a Capability Brown garden where my great grandfather once worked.

Good day Mr Badger

I hope that all is well in the Big Fluffie House? I heard the latest eviction was a Cyberman head? Holidays can be somewhat draining!

I really enjoyed tonight's funny episode with Robin Hood. I half expected at the end that Clara had not said anything about the Dr and it was going to be another one of those mysterious build ups?

The fluffies loved it and there was a sneaky reference to paradise. The eviction was Handles so he's been forgiven :P

Poor Handles! Yeah, I have this feeling that we haven't seen the last of Robin. There were sneaky references?

Brilliant. Nice pic too. I was at a Wildlife Trust do in the week and we were talking about attendance. Some walks and talks are well patronised and some cancelled through lack of interest - or weather.

Point being, if you organise none, you are guaranteed no participants, so every one above zero is a bonus.

I hope you will get the right support at college. They're much better than in my day. Do you have a good tutor?

Good luck.

Thanks glad you like the pic too.

Yeah that's true try nothing and you'll gain nothing. :)

Organising support is on my list of things to do for Monday. Taking each thing one at a time, meeting my guidance tutor for the first guidance class Monday. I'll ask him if I should just go straight to learning support and might be worthwhile to maybe tell him about my illness I get a feeling my lecturers don't know.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. They shouldn't give you an easy ride but once they're educated about it they can make adaptations to the schedule etc. Might be worth testing their knowledge too. I agree about you may as well be ill at college as at home - it's not contagious. Just allow for the fact you wont function as well during a flare.

Always good to educate people on your illness. I struggle to tell people how it really is as I naturally like to act fine. I need to work on the best way of education people about it.

Should probably make them aware of it as I have noticed some difficulties with sitting for long periods of time in class or standing in the studio. It's just the adjustment period though I suppose.

I'm convinced you'll be fine. You have the sort of mental vision to see you right.

Great news, you are quite right you can be in pain at home or distracted at college. Make sure you tell all tutors about how the condition affects you so they understand when you need time off. I hope you have a wondrful time.

Thank you having some trouble with my throat with my swollen lymph nodes. But nothing is stopping is me I'm determined :)

Thanks, Hope I do get good support and get my finance sorted with the additional services at the college. Have to organise a music event as part of my course so could even raise some awareness with that.

You take care too hope you are feeling as good as you can x
