Have you had your appointment yet Sarah?
Iv not been on the boards much for the last week cos iv been feeling shattered emotionally and the screen keeps giving me headaches
Last weeks sessions were all psychology which is fine cos iv studied it so knew most of what was being said and answered loads of q's (must have looked like a right geek
It just takes it out of you tho. My sleeping is a bit weird cos im getting off at night and waking up (over 2 weeks of 10am or earlier!!!!!!!!!!!!!
) but feeling fatigued during the day.
Pacing is stupidly hard, it all the extra thinking involved
I think i need to work on the psy side more tho as the pain gates made a lot of sense and im quite anxious at the moment as im still not working, or even sure what to do. The psychologist said teachers are often the hardest patients to deal with due to work load. The NQT yr (the probation yr) is the hardest yr ever (all teachers iv spoken to agree) so theres no way i could do it right now and i dont even know if i want to or not.
Then theres the increased weight issue (now im off gluten my body is absorbing all nutrients and iv put back on all the weight i lost 2 yrs ago through diet and exercise). Exercsise is difficult and im still adapting to diet.
PLus im getting a new physio cos mine is being moved to another hospital so iv got to start over again. Im not motivated right now to do the exercises cos the progress is non-existant and so slow. Iv managed to increase my general activity level during the day and get out of the house more often but not complete all the exercises
