Yes, almost forgot although I did remember yesterday briefly only to forget again and then today hasn’t been a stellar day memory wise since my sister had to prompt me that it was her birthday.
Health: See memory issues above. Not all of it is my fault I swear.
Family & Friends: Still getting things organised and responding slowly but surely to people.
Psychology: I’ve done nothing but book onto the next (and final) module.
Coaching business: Starting to get back into the swing of it but slowly.
Writing: Actually doing mroe of this but I probably should do less given I need to focus on the business and psychology over the next couple of weeks.
Most fun thing of the week: Resting. No really it was the most fun part of the week!
Health OK, well I’m starting to make a recovery but as usual it’s slow and frustrating. I could moan for hours about the reasons why which includes a surprise train journey to Durham and back to take my uncle home but I’ll refrain.
Family & Friends: My uncle is back in Durham. I’ve sent emails to some friends; need to email others. I’ve had to put off another friend until next month as my health isn’t up to it. This is the sum of my reconnection.
Psychology: Well, the mark for the final essay wasn’t bad per se but it was a step back from the previous essay mark so not particularly happy or satisfied. However, I need to focus on the exam and that’s where I’m focusing.
Coaching business: Still pretty much on hold.
Writing: The non-fiction writing I do for the magazine is done and I’ve actually done some writing on the original essay which is a bit of a miracle.
Most fun thing of the week: I did get my hair cut which made me feel better.
I know I missed a week!
Health: Yep, this would be the reason why I missed a week of posting. Just…everything has gone pearshaped. Mostly it’s to do with wrenching my ankle on holiday which has caused a flare-up of the fibromyalgia and my stress levels at not getting my own space back to recover in. It’s tied up with the fact that I know I have someone else to look after in the house; that I have to pretend that I’m OK to do that, even if I’ve been honest otherwise and said I’m fatigued, or dizzy (major dizzy spell yesterday), or haven’t really slept for four days. It’s a general nagging need for two days on my own where I don’t have to pretend I’m fine; that I can give into the fatigue and the pain and know nobody will see (and therefore worry) so its OK to give in and eat badly and not feel guilt for still being in pyjamas and not going anywhere at all even to the pub for a sunday lunch.
Family & Friends: See above on family. I do need to reconnect with my friends. I put off one visit because (a) my uncle is still here and (b) my health is pearshaped.
Psychology: Managed to get the last essay in which was a small miracle. I have a feeling that it won’t get a very good mark. I’m leaving revision for closer to the exam date because my fatigue is bad enough that my memory won’t work that well on retaining stuff medium-term.
Coaching business: On hold pretty much while I sort myself out although the new website is up.
Writing: Hasn’t really happened. I’ve been trying to get my energy levels back by reading but I need to do the reviews, start doing the writing for the business ebooks and focus on my fiction projects.
Most fun thing of the week: The cat who continues to be an endless source of entertainment.
