It's not that often that i use this blog as a place of update, so i thought i'd have a change. I've decided to try and and carry on with my degree this year, which means i will have my first lecture in a fortnight. I shouldn't really be due to return until February time, but because they have re-arranged the course since i was last there i have to do one module this term as well. It will just be one two hour lecture a week to begin with and then full-time next term. I'm still going to live at home and just commute in every week. Sheffield is about an hour and a half away on the train, so it's a reasonable distance, but i know i'm not ready to move yet. To be honest, the course only just let me return because i don't have any placements this term, and it's not guaranteed that i'll even be able to carry on when it gets to February because i have placements then and they want my seizures to be "abolished" in order for me to do them! But still, at least it's a little step forward even if nothing much comes of it.
In other news, i've started on another new anti-convulsant recently, so i'm presently taking three different ones... the newest one is having some negative side-effects so i'll probably have to come off that soon. My seizures have improved so much these days though and i haven't actually had any for a good number of weeks now. That in itself is amazing. I'm so grateful to everyone who's prayed for me over the last few years. Really i am.
