Sorry I haven't been in contact much. I've been quite busy, and also quite tired. Anyway, just so you know, this is an update of how I'm going.
Polytechnic (aka TAFE) I am finding most of my classes stimulating. I like group work the best. Our group is 'Divine Pantomime' and we work really well together.
We have a really bad teacher for our accounting class which I find frustrating. I can do the work so I won't fail but many others can't. Last lesson about ten people walked out of class in despair.
Socially I am getting on fairly well with the other mature age students. There are a couple of younger ones who talk to us and a few that don't. I have become less worried about this.
Jessie (the cat) Jessie is settling in to her new home. She is very affectionate to me but susses visitors out a lot more than Kaffy did.
Jessie would really like to go outside and hopefully I'll have the chicken wire up in about a week so she can.
Jessie coped well with me being away for the conference.
Mental Health Basically I am coping extremely well in terms of my mental health. Occasionally I get a bit stressed or paranoid but I haven't got depressed or psychotic at all since I've been on my new medication (clozapine).
Please pray that I will continue to be healthy mentally.
Physical Health and Exercise Although I am eating more healthily and exercising more regularly my physical health continues to be a problem.
I have vitamin deficiencies, a fast pulse rate and asthma. I really need to give up smoking.
I am also exhausted at the end of each day and need about 10-12 hours sleep.
Please pray for me in this area.
Spirituality/Religion I am attending church and praying regularly but I want to do my personal Bible study each day. On many days I don't get around to it.
Please pray that I will do my daily Bible Study and that I will enjoy it.
I am enjoying serving the church in the position of secretary and I am gradually getting the hang of it.
Cleanliness I have been able to clean at least once a week which is a vast improvement. Pray that I will continue this and gradually move to 2-3 times a week as I get more energy.
Anyway that's all from me for now.
