It's been a while | Stephen Broughton
I haven't updated this in quite some time. It feels like a lot has happened yet nothing major to report. I don't normally talk about medical things on here, but it's had quite an impact on me, recently. The working diagnosis that I have is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I've been put on an anti-depressant to help manage some of the symptoms but, somewhat ironically, it makes me more drowsy. It's also affected my mood somewhat, which led me to deactivate my Facebook account. I wanted a bit of distance to be sad, frankly. Nonetheless, I'm broadly alright: the gastrointestinal specialists have referred me back to my GP after finding nothing seriously wrong with my guts. I've now been made an official DMeLD, which means a pay rise in the short term. I'm also a hall warden, which means much better living arrangements for me. I'm still tutoring and I'm still studying, though I'm now aiming for a Masters degree in Philosophy rather than a PhD. Yep, a lot has happened!
