September 2012

September ended up being a very difficult month for me as my health became poor but had no idea why.  The first week was the first full week of school/work for me and my boys, my parents were also away.  They normally took the youngest to school and picked him up so I had to add this into my eldest’s schedule with bribery and corruption taking place to get him to do this.  I had to get to work in order to sort out my day and get prepared for my tutor group.  As a co tutor early morning meetings have to be attended in order that you are kept aware of any problems etc. of the students in your care.

Unaware an infection and worse was brewing, I was very tired and we ended up having more takeaways than I would have liked.  Pizza and Chinese are the boys favorite, we tried an Indian but the boys were disappointed with this.    The meals I cooked I was either too tired to serve and had to get the eldest to serve or had no appetite when it was ready.

As the boys were not used to helping round the house it was very difficult to motivate them to offer assistance, this is something they still struggle with.  This did not help with my lack of energy.

By the second week an ear infection had reared and I went for the first of four lots of antibiotic.  Each time the infection seemed to go but when the antibiotics were finished after two days it reoccurred.  It was very hard to do my work when the infection was affecting my hearing.  I was glad my parents were back from holiday as they took to taking me to work and picking me up.

As the infections continued I had to have time off work, which frustrated me.  I had a timetable of classes to go to with students I liked, I was enjoying sorting out the administration required for the year, and I was also enjoying looking after my tutor group.  On top of this I had started a course at work with time off in the working day to improve my skills.  Included in the course was two qualifications to update my maths and English qualifications.  Having always found maths difficult I was enjoying the challenge of the practice papers.

Little did I know what was around the corner.
