Nice to hear that some of you are enjoying the winter soups among other things.
Sorry that I've been off air for awhile but in the last month I've had a huge change in circumstances so here comes a few announcements in one!
1. Enrolled in a Bachelor as the other course on therapy was going so well I had to make a professional start. So I am now in Higher Ed. It's more demanding and time consuming but worth it!
2. My partner found us another home which has been the dream of our lives probably ever since we were first together over a decade ago: Living on the water. So the next few months are now like a huge overhaul! Selling up everything that we don't immediately need and move closer to the college. Will change my avatar to our home probably once we are living on her. However, one step at a time. More information about that as it draws closer.
3. Medical difficulties are still hanging around. So I hope to get answers in the near future. The timing of the mindfulness course has been great as I am not as stressed as I previously would have been.
Can certainly relate to how Tim is feeling as I am still quite sore from an ultrasound where the operator was a bit intrusive. Will be glad when this body pain is gone. Still trying to fight the depression with light activity like walking round the yard and garden - to think that the garden is something that we soon won't have - bit mindboggling!
I wanted to be a donor at one stage but I am theoretically a recipient (received an organ anyway). But blood is not necessary to receive organs even though Australia push it. But overseas "no blood" is the gold standard in World Medicine. Blood can contain disease and many recipients have had changed personalities from it, so exercise caution. It is always an individual decision!
