Sorry I haven't been around much this week. Four days of miserableness. But better now.

Perhaps speaks to it being more of a winter cold then as opposed to a flu, but nasty all the same. I'm still in awe of it's sense of timing... Virus seemed to 'sense' when we were interviewing Sister Francis and subsided, only to return later that evening. Or perhaps there is just something holy about the convent that shielded you like a forcefieldcouldn't be - didn't apparently include the temp of 102 and the five weeks of after lag
Not the same as Patrick's. No temperature. Just endless sneezing and unable to think....So was this the same as @Patrick 's dreaded lurgy? It sounds as though you've done a stellar job fighting it off so quickly, unless of course this is the so called "eye of the storm" where you recover for a day or two and then it comes back with a vengeance... Keeping my fingers crossed that it's gone for good!
Not that rare, unfortunately. Something often made much worse by the fact that men are not supposed to suffer from it!Oh definitely. A good example is how people have had surgery without the use of an anaesthetic, electing instead to be hypnotised and put into a state of extreme relaxation so as not to feel any pain. Quite remarkable the amount of control the mind has over the body.
And let's not forget that rare condition broken heart syndrome (takotsubo cardiomyopathy) where an extreme emotional event can trigger a heart attack and potentially death. I'm frankly surprised that I haven't had something like that myself and I think many of us can say the same, false allegations genuinely can kill.
I was going to say Roy - your cancer diagnosis can be most obviously attributable to that devil called "stress" - and in this instance a particularly vile and pernicious type of stress that has brought us to know each other.Not that rare, unfortunately.

Indeed - me too, I have seen some people go into permanent remission after being given a terminal diagnosis without any medical treatment.I firmly believe you are right regarding the cancer diagnosis. My consultant agrees. However, I also believe that a determined spirit can also have a positive effect on all of this. especially when there's a good reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
