The thought of heading back to uni in September has been extremely daunting for me. I struggle every day with my EDS & POTS whilst not doing very much and with so much help from my amazing mum! How will I cope on my own? And how will I manage when the friends, who know me and understand my journey, have graduated and moved on to bigger and better things (some pretty incredible things)? The answer is: I have absolutely no idea! I don’t know how I’ll cook and clean and do laundry and all the normal things, let alone do my actual degree, but if this is as good as I’m getting in terms of my health, I’m going to give it best shot. I wanted to head up to my beloved Norwich, firstly to celebrate many of my friends finishing uni and the 21st birthday of two of my good friends, but also to start helping myself by being introduced to those who will be my coursemates and start getting some support from my tutors and the disability services within the university so I can feel supported and make the most of the rest of my university experience.
This vlog shares with you my little trip up to Norwich and the wonderful
University of East Anglia (UEA). I had a busy weekend packing, travelling, seeing friends, going to a party, visiting the Norwich Vegan Festival and the Norwich and Norfolk Festival, shopping, going to a friends rehearsals and meeting a fellow Spoonie & Zebra friend. All this whilst managing my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Postural Orthostatic tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). It was a lovely weekend and a really positive expeience which has made me so excited (and a little less daunted) to go back in September! Hope you enjoy watching what I get up to!
