stephanies.spoonie.story Been drowing in schoolwork lately and have been really under the weather for the past week so I needed to do a little bit of self care today. Definitely helped a bit with my stress levels today, but things really won't get much better under this school semester ends in a month. How do my fellow college student spoonies make school work for them?? With extreme fatigue I need to take at least two naps each day, and my terrible brain fog makes it horribly difficult to keep up with all the work. I'm only taking three classes, and I can barely handle it. Does anyone have any tips? 2d
  •   maddi_gw_ It does take lots of motivation- I really struggled last year and getting myself to a place where I could think about stuff that early took a lot of work but it's paid off and made things much easier :) 2d
  •   stephanies.spoonie.story @maddi_gw_ that's awesome! I'll take your advice and really work on that! Thanks again 2d
  •   maddi_gw_ That's okay! I'm here if you need a chat or anything 2d
  •   mindfullyashley I had to drop out of college when things got bad. But before that I managed by going to class then going home and taking a nap and then doing homework and going to bed. I basically didn't have a life haha. And I set my schedule up so I had Fridays off so I could sleep all day and all my classes were in the late morning during the rest of the week so I could sleep in. 2d
  •   stephanies.spoonie.story @mindfullyashley ugh I'm so sorry. I feel you. I was away at school for a year and a half before I started showing symptoms of autoimmune disease. It got so bad that I had to leave school and move back home. I am forced to take at least nine credit hours at my community college every semester to keep my student loans from going into default, otherwise I would have dropped out for at least a year or so to focus solely on my health...oh well. Just trying to do everything I can to make it easier. Thanks for the advice 2d
  •   michellaphonic I had to do lots of cat naps and tbh I have no idea how I did it. However I don't work anymore because of my health. You will find something that works. Just day to day 2d
  •   stephanies.spoonie.story @michellaphonic sorry you aren't working, but it gives me some hope that you made it through school! Hope you are well 2d

rebel24 2 more weeks of light treatment and then I start #Stelara. Hoping its 3rd time lucky given how I reacted to #Enbrel and #Cimzia. I hope in 2 months time I can stretch off on a beach in Santa Ponsa like this with clear skin #Psoriasis #PsoriaticArthritis #UVB #Lightreatment #Autoimmunedisease #holidays #sun #beach #skin #legs #cork #ireland #nofilter 2w

stephanies.spoonie.story Finally back at work!! I haven't been able to work since January because I was too sick to get my Cimzia injections which made me flare really badly...so this is huge! I get my next injection on Friday so hopefully I'll keep improving. Fingers crossed that I won't get sick anytime soon so I can build back up to a good stable level of medication. 2w
