M.E. - Severe revision has ended!

Hello all!

It's been a very draining few days... I had a nutrition resit exam today, it's an exam I haven't taken for around a year due to numerous reasons... mainly because I wasn't fit enough to travel with the added pressure of it being in the morning (my worst time of day). Luckily I passed! The last few days I've made myself worse due to severe revision but I wanted to make sure I got it out of the way...

I got up shortly after 7am and was out of the house just before 8am. It took me just under an hour to drive to the location where I was having the resit and I was home around 11am. When I got home, I watched some t.v. but had to stop after around half an hour as my aches/pains, fatigue and brain fog were becoming very distracting! I had to have a lie down so I went back to bed for around an hour, still feeling achy etc but I felt marginally better than before I went for a lie down.

This afternoon I paid my M.O.T. (received invoice in the post a few days ago) £420 - ouch! I paid for a lifetime subscription with gigajam (the website I use for keyboard lessons) and I'm having a visit late tomorrow morning from the church pastor for a catch up, I haven't been well enough for church a fair few times recently so it will be nice to have a chat and he's always been helpful. :) I'm seeing my dad tomorrow afternoon (if I'm well enough). He worked a lot so I have to fit in with him and usually see him once a week. If I have a nap early afternoon then my symptoms shouldn't be too bad!

No singing or exercise the last few days, certainly not feeling up to that...

Lastly, there's some terrible winds going on outside. I'm sweating in here but I daren't open this window!

Hope you're all safe and wrapped up indoors!

Speak to you all soon x

  2. Hi, I tried to find a new review of gigajam as I wanted to subscribe to that site, too.

    May I ask how you find gigajam. Is it good enough for you?

    My sincere thanks,

    1. Thank you for the comment vietnamica. :)

      Yeah, gigajam is great... the xtractor program that you download to your computer is great for practicing... the video tutorials are also great and it really helps having a portfolio that keeps track of your progress. :)

      It's a 1 off payment so I'd say it's definately worth it. :)
