      How are you doing Lob? Did you decide to continue with your studies or take some time out? Just wanted you to know that you have been in my thoughts and I've been wondering how you are doing.

      yes Im back in Glasgow now. Unfortunatelly just before the flight I got cold and then the flight and things around moving in got me down and I relapsed. Then I had a gig on wednesday and although I felt ok that day, I relapsed again after, so I decided to quit the band for now and just do uni and rest, which does not seem to cause relapse. However I spiralled a little bit now, cause had to do stuff even through the relapse, but hopefully Im alright in few days.

      Its so unfortunate, cause just before getting ill I had a good run when I finally could do stuff without crashing, and I finally found the right amount of activity. I hoped Id create positive neural response to activity again, but now Im back to the start.

      It must be so frustrating Lob I can only imagine, with my own ups and downs with various injuries and health issues the past few years I can relate. All you want to do is be fit and healthy and just to able to live a normal life, it's awful when you just keep hitting barriers and I know the feeling and I really do sympathise.

      Just take it a day at a time Lob, I think you've done amazing even to make it to Glasgow to give it a go for your uni, you should take great heart from the courage you've shown by doing that. But remember even if you are not able to play in the band, still get some time with friends too because it's important too for your mental health as much as anything.

      Still thinking about you and rooting for you, keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

      improved this evening to the point where i went to the pub for 1 hr for a Becks blue...As time goes by the relapses seem less intense and recovery quicker as a result.

      I mean I can kinda function within crash as well, but its slippery slope to crashing further. Also just walking to places takes so much of my energy resources, theres not much left for actusl activities.

    Hi William,

    It's so frustrating and I remember going through this too when I thought things had gotten better and then after doing something you realise that your body is still very fragile. It can be discouraging and make you feel like you don't know how or if you are going to get back to full body health and resilience again - but believe me William it does come, your body will get stronger and stronger as time goes and my experience of Year 2 was very liberating that I could do things again without my body feeling so bad afterwards like it did so much in that first year.

    Just a word of encouragement that this kind of thing is very normal even at 8 months, and that you will see further improvements and move towards full recovery as time goes on from here - BY FAR you've weathered the worst of this storm, and just hoping and praying for better times ahead - thinking of you, hang in there. God is the great healer.
