Well it's absurdly early to be posting something on the blog but Mike is getting a new bed delivered (hoorah!) between 10 and 12 so this one has had to be vacated ready. Do I mind this because I'm aching with flu-like symptoms and wiped out with tiredness? Bring hither the wood for me to touch - I feel absolutely fine and normal. Much better than on the FEC. Can it possibly last? That's what the wood is for. And bizarrely rather than feeling tired I was wide awake in the middle of the night for about two hours (not in a fretful way, just thinking time) but I'm not feeling sleep-deprived this morning either.
The only sign of anything is in my hips. When I was a student (and even a few times after that) there'd be stupid parties where I'd end up sleeping on the floor or in the back of my mini and wake up feeling like somebody had drilled a hole through my hips from the outside (no lewd thoughts required or remotely justified unfortunately) - I feel a tiny bit like that. But it could just be Mike's old bed I suppose... Don't know whether it's the steroids helping me (yes they're still around so I'm still a round for a while longer I guess) that I'm taking a higher dose of now and have to start the day before the treatment. The T treatment itself is a lot easier because it's just one drip for about an hour and a quarter in the company of a good book (food-related of course - terrifying stuff called The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan, rush out and buy), so that was all very comfortable.
And Mike's loving care and attention of course...
So all those of you who have been threatening me with lunch or even something more exotic (Biker, Catharine and Bernie, Louis), get yer diaries out and unless things take a downturn, I'm stepping out for the next three weeks!
Just a note quickly about the comments instructions - there is no need to worry about having to set up your own googlemail account as Mike set one up from the blog for you to use. I know one or two of you were bothered about that but it can all come from off this site and not from your e-mail address at all.
(I'm not going to talk about nostril hairs at this point, it would only spoil an otherwise optimistic entry! Perhaps I needn't even elaborate...)
