Back In School and Sore!

Hi Sisters,

This week has been a big week for me I returned to school. I had withdraw last quarter for my TAH, I had a surgery at the end of the two previous quarters as well. Hopefully I will have no more surgeries, I am starting to worry. What if they remove a limb at the end of this quarter? Just kidding.

I am taking Creative Writing and American Literature. I enjoy both of the classes. Of course, I had back to school jitters. I have schizophrenia and always seem to be in a panic attack during the first two weeks of classes. Because of my mood disorder I am in Disabled Students and am allowed extra time for test and quizzes. I can even go into a private room if I am really anxious.

I was planning on doing literature first and then writing, but I want to start working on my writing now. I am very excited about the creative writing class, yet anxious. I worry I won't be good enough or have any talent.

As for my health, school has been mentally and physically tiring.
My pain is up too. I drive to a bus lot and ride for maybe twenty minutes or more to the college. It is in the country, so the bus is a great convenience. Yesterday I literally sprinted to catch the bus, along with a couple of other students, and it didn't stop. Luckily another bus came. A few come every hour, so it is hard to say if you missed the bus. The writing class meets each day and the books are light. The literature course on the other hand meets twice a week and the book is huge.

Even though I am at two months could I be carrying too much in my back pack? I thought about getting a back pack that has rollers, but that may not fly because of the snow and ice. I would feel silly, like I was going to the airport or something. But, I don't want my vanity to cause further health problems. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Some one told me that it is easier to carry books in your arms and firmly against your chest than it is to have the same weight in a back pack. At this long after surgery, my doctor said we should be about 90 % healed, but he also said to pull back when you feel pain. When you're at home try to take it as easy as you can to give your body a rest.
