I was paid a compliment this evening: apparently, I look less stressed than normal. I think I may no the reason; my new treatment plan. I have been following the treatment now for four days and already I feel the difference. The effect is immediate and, since starting I’ve felt much more comfortable and my body has calmed down.
It’s making a difference in my attitude, too. The drive to work is no longer a counting game; counting how long it will be before I may need to stop. Going out in general is not an exercise in pre-planning. Tomorrow, I may even go out on a long walk, with the dogs, I am feeling that much more confident.
Of course, the timing couldn’t be better, as I am off on an organised tour of Skye and the Highlands next week. As it happens, I will have to get to the doctors on Monday to get another prescription (as I only have enough to last until halfway through the tour), but that is a small inconvenience if it means I won’t be a disruptive force on this tour, as I was on the last one. Cutting down on this level of embarassment is a bonus, and also a reason for the lower stress levels.
All round it looks like good times ahead.
