    Heidi,

    Just a thought and im not sure if im 100% right here....but contact Jobcentre Plus.They may be able to contact a place called Shawtrust. Just mention it to them about you sitting exams and your illness and that you need advice and help so you can eventually get into some type of work. I am sure they'll point you in the right direction. If you need a number let me know and i'll get if for you. You can still get benefits and when you are ready for working no matter how long it takes, they will pay you 40 a week for a year as well.So thats benefits + work +40 a week as long as you work somewhere, i think even a few hours. Give em a call, cause im sure they could help with you doing exams and stuff. If im wrong, i apologise now.....but you never know i could be right.

    love
    Angel.xx

    Smile Way to Go Amy!!

    Congratulations on your 'A'....each one of your A's. That is cause to celebrate and cheer from the rooftops for sure. You deserve to toot your own horn long and hard for all your hard work paying off. And be sure to throw in an extra loud toot right in the face of Lupus.

    Well Done!!

    Hugs,

    Lori

    Congratulations!!!! It's hard enought to work full-time and go to school...let alone take care of a family and have this crazy illness. It's worth tooting your own horn over.

    Good luck! I can say I don't know how I would do with memorization. Thankfully this course that i'm taking doesn't involve major tests, its mostly papers and that kind of thing so its a bit easier since I do it from home and don't have to sit in a room with others and try to focus. Back in nursing school having this disease would have been very hard b/c of all the memorization but thankfully I did not get this until afterwards.

    I would say index cards are helpful. Finding your method of learning is helpful too. I need to write things down to help get them in my head so I often write notes even when I have things in front of me like print outs. I just like to reinforce the information in my head!

    Good luck!

    Dear Cherokee:

    Good for you! According to my daughter who graduated from graduate school a few years ago, grades are really important in graduate school. She had to have at least a B average just to remain in grad school! Of course, I don't know if that is the case where you go the school, but she always had that "B" average thing hanging over her. Again, congratulations.
