This can't be good for me

I've spent the last 5 weeks dosed up on caffeine, painkillers, energy drinks and sugary foods. Can't really be good for my recovery can it. Whilst I estimated 30–45% for todays exam yesterday, that was a bad estimation based on the way I felt.

I played at practice yesterday for the first time in over 2 1/2 months. I was so wiped out afterwards that I thought I was going to die. Mum was right when she said that GF really knocks it out of you and that getting back into exercise afterwards is difficult and should be taken slowly. Not to mention the fact that I've not done any exercise in ages, so no wonder I felt Uber–bad.

After spending the last 2 hours revising for this one today.. revised estimate = 45%–55% depending on what question comes up.

  1. by GF do you mean glandular fever? Gosh I dont envy you – a couple of weeks before the end of last term the doc thought I had GF too but blood tests showed it was only tonsilitis (well i say only but i still went through hell, but at least it was more short term than GF). Hope you feel better soon, and take it easy with the sport. Reintroduce yourself slowly, maybe try individual sports first so that you can stop when you want to.

  2. A good friend had GF around her exams last year and applied for special consideration from the university and successfully got this. It would be well worth your while to do the same if you haven't already. Hope your recovery progresses well, not doing too much seems to be her key to getting better, irritating though it is having what you can do cut down. Good luck.
