It comes to something when before you can move out of bed, it needs 4 co-codamol and 20 mils of Oramorph to kick in. Not cornflakes and coffee, but painkillers and coffee, Jesus wept.
So I'm registered on the module Y033, and not having studied as such in 31 years, I'm very excited, yet at the same time have feelings of dread, possibly because of my Schooling days, and exams. 1989 was the first year for GCSE's, and they weren't pretty exam results to be sure.
So why am I doing this? Well, hum, at 28 I had a total breakdown, and the DWP slapped a not permitted to work order on my file, at 34 I became wheelchair bound, and to top it off I had a rare cancer that needed some cutting edge scientific genetic work to cure, but through all of these things I've felt useless, and I'm fed up of feeling useless, so a return to academia, to finally put everything all behind me, at 47. I like to do graphic work and fly drones, build websites, but it's not enough, my brain feels like it's rotting, and that just won't do, visa vi, Y033 before embarking on q67, a 6 year Batchelors Degree.
So yes, excited, but bloody nervous as hell, anyone else feeling like that?
