Major Relapse

Running A TemperatureWho would have believed it? Having had a huge dollop of stress lifted from my shoulder yesterday, I have succumbed to a major relapse, physically. My wheezing has returned, my joints ache, my nose is running like a tap and my back is pure agony. What has happened?

I know there is a great deal of research that shows that people who go on holiday, after a heavy time at work, very often come down with some bug or another. It’s almost as if the body relaxes too much, and leaves itself open to infection.

I was suffering with my back at the weekend, and being surrounded by the grandchildren may well have been the source of infection. But it’s really annoying to have to struggle through, on the first day of a new job, albeit in the same company.

So don’t try to contact me tonight, I’m going to go home, chant my heart out for half an hour, get undressed and tuck myself into my bed. I need to give this illness the heave hoe, I don’t want to be sick for my first week in this new position.

It will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.
