Hey everyone :) I'm back - I've been lurking and reading but not feeling like posting much. I've had some good and bad few days; my anti-depressants are finally starting to give me longer lifts, and while I've had some lows, I'm managing them better, so that's good progress. My doctor continues to be really reassuring, which is something I very much need. I don't want to get too much into it, but my anaemia and blood deficiencies stem from dietary problems, and I am being referred to a psychiatrist to work on them. Don't worry, I'm not anorexic or bulimic or anything - I eat lots of food and want to put on weight and so on.
Uni has also been up and down, and I now have a deep loathing for one of my lecturers, whom I have creatively and derogatively renamed :) My personal tutor is very understanding of my problems, which is fortunate, though I'm still working out what I want to tell him about the dietary issues as they're something that's very difficult for me to talk about to anyone.
I went swimming today, up at uni. One of my housemates took me, and we went to the 25m pool instead of the big 50m pool cos I can't actually swim xD He taught me the movements for breaststroke and I began practicing them, and also had fun bobbing about in the water, clinging to a float and pretending to be a porpoise :) It's the first time I've been swimming in a pool for a couple of years, and it's been a while since I last swam in lake or sea.
If you believe everything you read, better not read.
