Hey, I'm Cavy :hello:, this thread is a continuation of This Thread but obviously I can't put this one in Fresher's Blogs as I'm no longer a fresher. This thread is for the new academic year which is my second year at university.

This thread isn't going to be a GYG with notebooks and perfectly laid out stationery because my life is quite messy often and there are a number of health things that impact my life. If that's not your thing that's fine but this thread probably isn't one you will really be into, which is also fine as no-one is obligated to read it :nah:

Academic History :work::
Spoiler:
Show


GCSEs = 8A*s and 2As
AS = 4As
A2 = A*AA
First Year = PASS(we only get 'pass' or 'fail' for our first year at my uni). I am currently studying Design at uni.



Health :nurse::
Spoiler:
Show


Health things obviously impact my life. Stuff started to go downhill health and MH wise at the end of year 12. As much as I try to get on with life despite things, of course some things are going to be affected. Currently I am diagnosed with PCOS (you wouldnt think it but this is a real pain :sigh:), BPD (if you don't know what that is then This Thread should help offer some explanation ) and have a lot of pain in my lower back. Additionally i have a lot of nightmares (every night) so obviously these impact my life (more info Here).
To help with these things i have DSA, take meds (Quetiapine 100mg, Sertraline 150mg and Cerelle 75mg), see a psychiatrist and will hopefully get some kind of PD therapy one day (the waitlists are very long and me potentially going on placement next year messes up waitlists :sad:). Additionally i like drawing and art to keep myself busy that way. If you need any help with anything design related feel free to hmu in the Design and Technology Forum



Anything else?

Am a CA in Chat and DT which i very much enjoy so you will see me around a fair bit in those forums
My uni is very rural so i often walk in the woods so expect a lot of nature pics in here :laugh: I love animals possibly more than people so I have my own pets which i miss very much whilst im at uni.
I have a small polar bear teddy (TSRGus :ninja:) called Gus who often accompanies me on my travels so expect to see a lot of him too :bear: I also have a secret hamster in my room called Sebastian who is my best friend 🐭
I would like a first this year as it counts towards my final year but tbh am just trying to aim to get through the year in one piece as 1st year has been turbulant to say the least. I also need to search for a placement this year (:afraid:) so i can do my year in industry in the 3rd year.
That's everything really

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay for blog continuation. So pleased about this - wasn't sure whether you'd continue or not and didn't want to put any pressure. But I do really like following your blog, even if I don't always know what to say in response, or can't comment on everything due to my own health

Am in a lot of pain today, idk why it gets worse randomly. Have been asleep most of the day tbh cos am home alone so it's only me and my pets here. Need to ring the doctors tomorrow cos I rang on Friday but they said the x-ray results hadn't come back yet. I don't think it can show any nerves it's squashing (doctor thinks it's squashing my pelvic nerve) but it should show how badly it's twisted and hopefully can get some pain relief in the meantime (ibuprofen doesnt do anything for it so am going to ask for something stronger) cos will have to have any treatment or further tests for it at uni cos am going back quite soon. So will need either copies of the x-rays or for my temporary doctors to fax them over or something.
Have done my first of 5 drawings. Am pleased with how it's turned out but still need to do the other 4
