Recovery Day

I had a bad night again last night tossing and turning. I knew I was tired after working yesterday but my mood was good so I thought I would bounce back easily. But by the early hours of this morning I had that distressed feeling even while I was asleep and it become more difficult to sleep in peace. I got up to find myself all puffy in the face again. My temperature is 37.95 and my tum is upset again. I feel like a wrung out rag. I am so disappointed because I really thought I was going to be able to cope with work yesterday. I had had a good day. And I have so many things I want to catch up on from washing to folding away the swimming pool and cutting up palm branches. Now, just the thought of catching up with the lady next door to organise the lawn mowing for tomorrow seems like too much to deal with. So once again I must give up my plans and let the slow process of mending take all my energy reserves. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow with the chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia specialist GP so he can deal with it all.

In the meantime, I am getting worried about my Glucosamine Sulphate…it is a Bio-Organics product and costs up to 30 dollars a bottle. I have two bottles because it was on special. I saw the characteristic red bottles being pulled off the shelf on TV but the list has not been completed of recalled products yet. I am at the site I made a link to yesterday trying to find which are NON- Pan products but this brand is not listed. Rats! I have been living on the stuff. What about all the rest of the companies whose products I have floating around this house. Scott was put on new med yesterday but it is listed as a NON-Pan so OK. My Nicotine-replacement products are OK. We need paracetamol in this house so I can get Herron but not Farmland, Home Brand, nor Panadol. This is going to be a huge National headache. I guess this homework is something I can do while I am not feeling strong.
