persephone Posted April 25, 2006 Report Share Posted April 25, 2006 Hello everyoneJust a quick note to let you know I'm back in Oxford and had a really fab day yesterday. I am really excited- I didn't do anything amazing, just normal stuff by most peoples' standards but it gave me real hope that I can have a proper life here.I got up really early, went to the Bodleian just after 9, then came back, made myself lunch, did work early pm, then went to the English faculty and History faculty to pick up a load of books I need. Then I had tea- I made it myself- no help from anyone- and went out to the pub at night for a drink with some friends from class.These are all things I used to take for granted before pots. But I really feel it when I can't do these things. So to manage them all in one go yesterday was FABULOUS!Of course, typically, today I had a crushing migraine and felt horrific. I looked like the wlaking dead too. I got so hypotensive I couldn't sit up for a few hours during my usual down time (4-7) but I now feel I have asecond wind.I have decided that I will start as I mean to go on. I'm setting my alarm for 8am. And after I've showered and had breakfast, I'm going to ride my bike for half an hour round Oxford, to get some blood circulating and get moving. And prove to myself that I am better than I was before Easter.Wish me luck! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
