| l i s t e n | On Friday I had a sore, slightly scratchy throat... no big deal, whatever. I immediately began popping pills, downing syrups, putting layers on and drinking more fluids to keep the old sickness at bay . By Saturday afternoon (after a severe shortage of sleep but awesome brunch with pals ) I was a weak, achey, sneezy, snotty, shakey, I’m sure hallucinating, sweaty mess... Such a sexy specimen of a human being, can’t you just picture it?! 🤧 .
I haven’t been “out of action” unwell in years! Something that the practice of yoga has taught me is to listen to my body. Listen to when it’s telling me. Listen to when it needs to be looked after and cared for. Listen to it’s needs and it’s wishes. I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle but apparently there’s “something going around” and the sucker got me! Contrary to my belief... I am NOT invincible... Damn! I cancelled all classes, found cover for my reception shift in Fulham and hunkered down with numerous cup of tea on the sofa. Instead of feeling guilty and lazy, like a quitter, like I’ve let people down and I could have pushed through... (ok 1. I definitely couldn’t have pushed through. 2. I feel all of these a little- but much less so than I would have a few years ago). I have accepted, my body is telling me I must slow down... So that is what I am doing for a few days .
NOTE : my nurse @jazzrandall2 has just left me to go to work... She’s so selfish .
NOTE 2 : I’m feeling sorry for myself and if anyone wants to keep me company in Streatham I welcome you with open arms. 🤗 .
