I got my TMA results back today - 67%! I am sooooo pleased, 'cos I thought I'd done really bad on this one.
I've been feeling pretty ill recently, and I couldn't concentrate very well while I was doing this, so to get this result (which is more than my first TMA), was really encouraging!
My tutor sent me a lovely email, as I had started to worry that everyone else was more sophisticated in their style of answering the questions than good-old plain me - but she reassured me that my marks are above the average, and that my answers are fine - I really must get over trying to compare my work with others in that way - we all have out own individual abilities!
I've just been through the painful process of having Cortozone injections in both wrists, as I've got Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in them (along with Arthritis and Fibromyalgia) and, although it was agony at first, there has definately been an improvement - my hands have hardly gone numb since.
My Doc's arranged for me to see a Neurologist (a wait of 26 months, I've just been informed), then after that it'll be decided on whether to operate on my wrists - I just pray there isn't a need, as I've had more ops in my life than I care to think of!
I'm waiting at the moment for a lot of equipment that i've been fortunate to be awarded - it will help me with my studying, as i'm finding it very hard to cope. I'm getting a speech programme called Dragon that will mean that i'm not typing so much - which will rest my poor, abused hands and wrists (I hope).
I've missed a couple of my meetings at the Kingdom Hall these last couple of weeks - my health has been up and down - and I have really missed the love and fellowship I find there, although my sisters have phoned, and offered their help and love, so it hasn't been as bad as it could have been!
On a lighter note, bob's Ferrets have been driving him potty! The Jills were mated with a vasectomised Hob, and one of them is going through a phantom pregnancy - she spends her whole time dragging the other Jill into the bedding area of their hutch, and trying to treat her like a newborn. It's so funny to see, althoughI think Bramble has had enough of it now, and has started objecting quite forcefully!
Bob keeps them separate as much as possible now, and will do until Holly realises she's not pregnant! lol
