Rest and Recuperation

This isn’t a very long post. It’s not even a medium length post. This Arrows and Ailments post comes to you on a relaxed Saturday afternoon from a very grey, windy city of London.

I’m home alone this weekend and halfway through I’ve realised just how much I needed this. I’m extremely introverted by nature and socialising / having constant contact with other people is incredibly challenging for me. I’ve not been able to just relax in my own space for such a long time and I could almost scream out in relief. I can practically feel my internal battery recharging. I did some cardio this morning, I’ve done the laundry, tidying and now I’m just relaxing at my desk enjoying the view out of my office window. To clarify, I’m not at work. I set up the spare bedroom as a home office. I may even take a bath later.

In other news, I’m getting closer to heading back to medical school.

I am starting to feel the excitement of going back to medical school build again. King’s College, I’m coming for you!

My student finance application has been approved. I decided to get my application in early and it seems it was the right decision as my application was approved in just 8 days versus the 6 weeks it would normally take. So that’s one less thing to worry about.

Thank you Student Finance England for a surprisingly painless and uncomplicated application process.

Now I’ve got to wait potentially up to 16 weeks apparently for my disabled students allowance application to be processed. I’m a little anxious as I’ve not had to apply for anything like this before and I’m still coming to terms with the fact I’m classed as having a disability due to the brain injury I suffered some years ago. Have I mentioned this before? I don’t remember but yeah I suffered a traumatic brain bleed and that’s left me with life-long disabilities. New post idea? Maybe I’ll write about this further in another post. Anyway, worrying about my disability application won’t help so I’ve just got to focus on enjoying my day-to-day life.

Hmm, I guess this was a medium length post. Sorry about that 🙂
