Today I booked a place at some student accommodation. In September, I’m leaving home to study. It seems like September is a long way away, but it will sneak up on me. Like accepting a place on the course I want to study, booking accommodation feels like a big step because it’s a commitment. I am going to leave home. I’m going to live in a different city. And I’m going to spend the next four years as a student.
Without MLC and Johansen therapies, I wouldn’t have got this far. There’s a slim chance I could have struggled towards this goal, then fought my way through the next four years or dropped out.
With good hearing, energy, balance, health and a new-found enjoyment of talking to other people and making friends, I think I might not just survive life as a student. I might have a lot of fun.
