Right now I'm a bit stuck with what to do. I'm still all over the place with my health. Uni is back, and I'm currently doing 2 subjects totaling 5 hours over 3 days. That's less than half time. At this point the only subject I completed last semester was a general arts one we all had to do. The only other thing I could stay enrolled in was Aural Development and Studies, which runs over the full year.

So I'm getting to uni again. When I'm there I talk to people, have fun and get a...

Clothes Shopping

Posted 07-26-2014 at 10:29 PM by Phylum
I thought it might be nice to get some new things before uni goes back. Some of my jumpers are looking a bit daggy, and I could do with another jacket. I'd tried to go a few times in the last 2 weeks, but I was always either too tired to make it to the shops or too tired once I got to the shops to walk around umming and ahhing.

So today I tried again. And I got to a shop. And I looked at clothes. And I came to a strange realisation. I don't want new clothes. I want to look nicer so...

What Even is Time

Posted 07-07-2014 at 08:45 AM by Phylum
So I'm still in a really bad way. A really really bad way.

I can't do things. I spend all day tired and exhausted. I've been trying to go for walks and stuff during the day, but they just make me more tired. I've been pushing on with them, but mum actually said that she doesn't think they're doing me any good today. I want to keep walking. I need time where I can get out of the house. I need to fucking do something.

I've had minimal social interaction for the last 3...

Killing Time

Posted 06-22-2014 at 11:12 PM by Phylum
I'm still not very healthy.

Uni finished almost 2 weeks ago for me, and I've been resting up a lot since then. I daresay I'd been feeling a lot better. I was generally up all day, and getting to a point where I was going for walks, cleaning my room and just generally actually being productive. I was still getting tired at times, but it was infinitely better. I actually had the energy to be doing flute practice again, and in a few days was producing a focused sound that I've never...

Everything's Fucked

Posted 06-03-2014 at 05:31 PM by Phylum
I'm withdrawing from performance extension, and being forced to withdraw from my mandatory ensemble. I'm getting my regular performance exam pushed back, but it looks like I'm going to have to drop out of that for this semester too. You need to complete semester 1 to do semester 2, so basically the key component of my course and the thing that I really love would be gone for the rest of the year.

Also my group in a dumb Arts subject we have to do presented without me yesterday, even...

from bad to something something

Posted 05-14-2014 at 12:20 AM by Phylum
I don't even have words for how I feel any more.

I've been feeling a bit better with my fatigue. I've been back to the doctor, and my chest x-ray was fine. My ultrasound is on Friday, so I should have the results by this time next week.

So I went back to uni today. I got a bit out of breath rushing around for a train I ended up missing, but other than that I really thought I might be up to going. I got there, and sang in choir for just over an hour. All of the standing...

Title in lowercase for effect

So I'm struggling with fatigue again. I was diagnosed with a thyroid defect after months of this last year, and medicated. It helped. I got better. I went to Europe for 3 weeks and did stuff the whole time, and was fine. Life was good.

Now I'm worse than I've ever been. Every time this hits me it's worse. I felt it coming. I tried to rest up and avoid it, but I couldn't. I got a fairly bad skin infection, which really set it off. It totally...

body pls

I'm really unwell. Hot, cold, hot, cold. All day. Really uncomfortable. Really achy.Temp has been around 38˚ all day. It's now jumped up to over 39. I had panadol about an hour ago and I don't feel any better. Temp dropped about half a degree.

It gets really frustrating taking layers on and off all day when you're so muscularly fatigued.

Spent my day watching Mad As Hell, The Mighty Boosh and Yogscat videos, because it distracts me from how awful I feel. Laughter...

So uni is pretty awesome really. I can sit in a room and play flute all day. I can justify going out to 4 hours of concerts last night. I'm finally doing what I've always wanted.

It's interesting. It's stressful. I have a really great teacher, and she started out giving me lots to do to push me, and see what I'm capable of. We were aiming for one study per week, but that's never happened. I had a bit of a technical issue, which basically meant that in the last few weeks I've had to...

Uni lyfe

Posted 03-06-2014 at 01:02 AM by Phylum
I started uni on Monday. Bachelor of music in classical performance, specialising on the flute with an additional Classical Performance Extension subject in place of semester 1 theory because my entrance exam was good.

I'm expected to do around 4 hours practice a day. Probably more because of extension. The formal requirement to pass is 24 hours a week, but I'll probably end up doing much more than that. It's basically all of the work I have to do, so I just squeeze it in wherever...
