I have a couple of friends out there who are having some serious health problems right now and my thoughts are going out to them. Our health- mental and physical health - is the most important asset we have. Without good health our lives become far more limited and difficult. So to everyone reading this I'd just like to say: make good health your priority in life. With good mental health we can better love our families; with good physical health we can do a better job at whatever it is we are here for. Take your life one day, one hour, one minute at a time. Value every moment and make the best of it that you can. Whatever you have is enough, at this moment you need nothing more.

I'm in the process of moving to a new flat. The work of moving is being spread out over a week so that I have plenty of time to rest and recover in the afternoons, following mornings moving possessions, getting them sorted and put away, and the old flat cleaned. Three more days to go. Unfortunately, even with my precautions, I'm still getting stressed. I lie down in the afternoon but don't fall asleep - or if I do, just for a few minutes and then I'm awake again - and when I get up again I feel just as dizzy, tense and anxious as before. The water delivery guys found the new flat without difficulty. The internet company is another matter. Even though I filled out the correct forms a couple of weeks ago to transfer my connection to the new flat, it still hasn't happened. I've called the Go office twice, talked to four different people, and still can't find anyone who seems to know what's going on - or rather, not going on, with my connection. At the moment I'm still connected at the old flat, but it's looking increasingly obvious that I'll be without a connection once I finally move in tomorrow. Grrr! I shall ask them for a rebate on my bill. Wish I could ask for compensation for all the stress they are causing me.
