I have been accepted onto a 2 year Foundation Degree Clinical Complimentary Therapies course at college an have already started last Tuesday, overlapping studies with my current Level 3 Diploma in the same field. Going to need rocket fuel to keep me going I reckon :crazy:

Fantastic news for you chookie xx With your timetables you may find you're able to devise a study schedule that lessens the need for quite as much rocket fuel :grin::grin:

When all else fails, hug your Teddy xx

mmm Rocket fuel , thought that was the drink of choice for all students :-D

Delighted for you you must feel very proud of yourself and rightly so , just try and pace so that you don't go downhill to fast, a slow decline to a stable level would be much better.

Take care of yourself and use what you learn to help yourself first.

I agree about pacing yourself. Im on a degree for social work. Just finishing my second year, I'm 40yrs and have 2kids and a partner who works full time. The assignments in the time limits is killer. I'm also dyslexic and dyspraxic which makes it twice as hard as you find you are concentrating more to get everything done.
Ive found I need to take the time to sleep or else I am exhausted for my degree and my family. So pacing yourself and taking the time to relax daily or every other day is essential. More people should give education a try for all ages.

Thank you for your support :-D I sleep whenever I can, I plan well in advance for my assignments and I am going to gain the help of my hubby and 12 year old daughter to batch cook meals and freeze them. My meds are being revised, I am using essential oils on myself and my tutor is amazing for help. I am a lucky ducky :lol:
