something else to worry about

Well, Mulder is continuing to do well... no probs with her. She's eating well, her stitches don't seem to be bothering her and she's quite her normal self! What a relief!

I, on the other hand, am doing terribly... as usual... My to do list is a mile long, I'm achieving v. little to nil, I have no idea what I'm supposed to be writing next... same old same old...

And this morning I hear news of yet another damning report about a medicine I've been taking for a long time. More cancer scares... sigh... Sometimes you really just don't know what to do, do you? To fix one problem, you create another... health is just one great series of knock-on effects... the entire human constitution is like a plate balancing act. You move to correct a wobbling platter, and somewhere else, another starts to teeter or drops off the pole entirely.... At least that's the way it feels to me, and I know that I'm far from the only person who's struggling to keep everything spinning! Not by a long chalk... There must be millions... billions of us out there trying to stay on an even health keel against the odds.

Telly: not yet
Chocolate: not yet
Mood: peed off
Writing: not yet
Reading: not yet
RSI/FMS: aching all over

Don't forget Portia's Promos - new stuff being added all the time!

I know exactly how you feel! If it makes you feel any better, currently my house is a tip and my ironing pile is so high, there are mountaineers climbing up its North face!

It does feel like a balancing act. All we can do is hope to stay upright for as long as possible!

I'm happy to hear your cat is doing much better. You're right about medicines. They cure something, but affect something else. It's quite scary.

Thanks for the kind words, guys! I think half the battle is to accept that this is the way life is... it isn't simple. And try and keep your head and do the best you can...

Am wondering about a trip to the doctor though, to get his opinion on those scary reports.
