Thank you for your answer :)

Yes , that would be a good thing to reduce all the travelling i have to do , but im afraid i wont be able to take care of an appartment in my own .

But if i move closer to my college , i will have to do all the chores alone , and im afraid i wont be able to manage that … will the bio treatment reduce my pain but make me very tired in the beggining ? What will the process be like in terms of living conditions , pain , and what i will be able to do and manage ?
