A Different Approach

Ever since I started to feel unwell (& admitted to it), many of my friends have been more than sympathetic, taking time to ask me how I feel, what am I doing in work (you know who you are!) & if there's anything they can do for me. All very lovely, & very much appreciated. I have, over the last couple of days, noticed a slight change in tactic from some people. They have asked me if I think it is stress. Or do I feel stressed. Or they once suffered from stress, & they had all sorts of symptoms which came down to stress. I swear, the next person who asks me if I'm stressed, I'm going to summon whatever small amount of energy I have left & knock you right down. If I then very suddenly feel well again, I shall stop to lift you up & declare you were right. But I don't think there is much chance of that happening - if you want to gamble though, I'll play right along.

Been there, Tina, know it well. I had post-viral syndrome over my A'levels. Everyone assumed it was stress. It wasn't. I was proper poorly and it wasn't nice. So, just say the word and I'll join in the punch up. That way, even if you do feel better, there's not a chance the pillock stupid enough to question your health will be capable of getting up, either with assistance or without it.

Thank you very much Belle, I knew I could rely on you! You can lull them, with your good housewifely ways. Then I will stomp on them
