Wish me luck!

I thought I would give a quick update on what's been going on even though hardly anything interesting has been going on...

Though you're probably pondering why my title says "Wish me luck!". Well this is because I finally got my driving license back last week after 4 months of waiting!  So I have booked my theory test this Friday! Waaah 

I'm with BSM, they have this rule (Pretty sure it's BSM that does this rule or whatever) so I am only granted 14 hours lessons for free till I pass to do my theory then I get more hours for free, so I decided to book my test for this Friday and to be honest, I am kind of shitting it. I tend to find I get easily distracted by noises and I can't concentrate for long so an hour of sitting and staring a screen whilst getting my brain in gear is just going to be HELL. But I'm hoping to go in with a positive mind and receive a positive outcome! 

I haven't really been doing much lately apart from trying to finish off my Society, Health & Development, which is just taking the piss as I should have completed it by year 11, but due to health problems and huge absent from school, I never really got the chance to complete it. It's frustrating because I'm not with my friends hardly now as I'm always in the Hearing Impaired Unit which is provided for the Deafs (So quiet in there and I get extra supports bitches) I was suppose to be retaking my Maths and English last September but they have now decided I need to start from scratch, which means I got to do the whole process of year 10 and 11 work but in Sixth Form still. So I'm going to restart it again this September as I was absent pretty much last year due to Port operations and fluy cold which kept me trapped at home.

Cystic Fibrosis wise 
We all have our good days and bad days and that's what's happening with me at the moment. I mean, I feel pretty well, but then some mornings I'll wake up feeling like a pile of shit and struggle to get a decent breathe so that's a pisstake because it's affecting my Education. Meeh

I just wanted to say, I found this paragraph about Cystic Fibrosis and thought it was quite well informative and well written. I just thought I would share it with you guys :-) I don't even know who wrote this, but whoever did, did a good job. 

Cystic Fibrosis: I could give you the medical definition of what it is, but that surely doesn't do justice to the realities of it all.

Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that slowly destroys your body one day at a time. It causes constant pain and fatigue. Hours worth of treatments and over 45 pills...not every week, but every single day. Your lungs ache and struggle to do, what seems to others, the "simple" process of breathing. Toxic antibiotics that improve, but yet also destroy your body. Doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists are considered family. 18 years old. We're not celebrating because we are now considered a legal adult, we are celebrating because we are alive. Our bodies are starved from proper nutrients and oxygen. Kidneys fail. Livers fail. Hearts fail. Lungs fail. Bodies fail. People die. Kids who never got the chance to see middle school, teenagers who were holding on to hopefully make it until graduation, and adults who waited endless hours, but never received that call.

Think this is too harsh? Welcome to the life of thousands of people, who despite all of this, keep an immense amount of laughter and positivity in their lives.

Anyway, I'm going to end this now and hopefully next time I'll post with some good news (aka theory test!)
