Here’s a bit of my story, cut short….
Five years ago I had to stop work because I was ill. Really ill. I’ll let you imagine the details, but I had months where I couldn’t even get out of bed let alone leave the house. I was on loads of medication – steroids, hormones, painkillers to name but a few. I went a bit doo lally tap. I needed major surgery but my heart defect had just been discovered so noone wanted to operate on me because of the risks.
It was at this point I decided I was going to change my life.
endured enjoyed a career in the social work field, but I’d always wanted to study more and never had the opportunity until then. I had a lot of time on my hands. So I studied Social Policy and Criminology with the Open University.
Long story short I said didn’t I? Sorry. Short, here goes.
Started degree 2011. Major surgery March 2013. Decided I want to be a lawyer to fight for social justice 2014. Started working part-time for my church as pastoral and community worker January 2015. Graduated the degree with first class honours September 2015. Started graduate diploma in law (part-time) October 2015.
So this blog is basically a load of wholehearted rants about changing my life and fixing my heart.
I hope you enjoy it. I hope it helps someone other than just me.
Please let me know.
