Listening to me….

I’ve cancelled a couple of things this week. I was due to attend a mental health leadership programme both tomorrow and Saturday, and was looking to return to working at SANE on Friday.

But I’m listening to what my body is telling me. And it’s telling me to rest. Still the horrendous cough which is a bit looser, still the backache which is a by product of all the coughing, still the fatigue, still not good. If this hasn’t gone by Friday, then I’ll be sitting in the doctor’s waiting room. This has really laid me low, and so I’ve taken the decision that my health is more important. Also I don’t want to be spreading my germs around in crowded places. Sometimes you have to give best and just let this wretched virus ride out. I certainly haven’t coughed as much in many a year.

Important lesson, to listen to ourselves and to take the appropriate steps.
