As some of you know, I recently switched to NDT and noticed some improvements but still a little way to go. I am still increasing my dose though, so I'm not expecting miracles until I have been on the correct dose for a little while. Even though I'm not there yet, the signs are encouraging.
One of the most noticeable problems I have been having over the last few years is not being able to think or remember or concentrate. Well, yesterday at work I had 3 brainwaves within 10 minutes and I had another one today! (I told them that's probably it for the rest of the year now ) Three of these ideas involved PVA glue and the use thereof; very useful when you work in an infant school but I also solved a little dilemma someone was having today with my knowledge of obscure information. This is what I always used to be like. Full of seemingly useless information that would come in very handy from time to time. My brain always seemed full of stuff and the right thing would just pop out at the appropriate moment. I have missed that over the last few years and it was very pleasing to have it happening again.
On top of that I have been coping fine with the mega-stress of christmas at school. Making school play costumes, making the eco-tree for the church Christmas tree competition etc, etc, all whilst still doing all the other stuff that needs to be done on a daily basis. I'm even up to date with all my marking (although I only have to mark 1/3 of the books most of the time). I even managed to wing it when I was covering the teacher today and the plans had to be changed. I didn't even get particularly stressed about it.
And with the snow this morning (I love snow) and lots of the staff getting in late because the roads were all blocked with traffic and accidents and stuff and the kids having snowball fights in the playground (my turn for playground duty this week!) Life is fun. I'm still tired but I am enjoying life and feel almost like my old self again.
I'm due to increase my dose at the end of the week so maybe my energy levels will start increasing again. Meanwhile I probably ought to make sure I'm not overdoing it. Overdoing is quite tempting once you find you are "doing" again.
Anyway, sorry for my inane ramblings. I hope you're all having a good day
