My body has been speaking out; basically the message has been “Stop!”
I tried the gentle approach: reigning in my already pared back life – cancelling my, oh so hectic, social engagements; resting for ever longer periods; focussing on fewer things at work.
It’s not been enough, So I’ve listened, and I’ve been signed off work. It’s a great relief. I can lie in bed for as many hours as I want … which is quite a lot.
Happily for me, storms have been raging outside. It saves me the effort of personal raging – not that I’ve got the energy.
I’m trying to let it flow over me. Relax. It will pass. That’s what I’m telling myself …
