I wanted to say a huge thank you and to send hugs all round to my dear blogging friends after your fabulous response to my last post. You really made me feel so much better about the book and about the drop in my spirits upon its completion. You were so immensely kind and encouraging and it helped no end.
I also wanted to let you know that I got my blood test results back this afternoon and I am fine, apart from suffering an imbalance in my hormones. My doctor’s conclusion was that it was indeed just a chronic fatigue relapse, and that the hormones are where it affects me most. And as some of you out there may know, having unbalanced hormones, particularly once you have hit 40, is not a great deal of fun. But I am so relieved to know that I’m just dealing with the familiar enemy. I’m fully embracing a program of rest and relaxation, paying good attention to my diet and – feasible now I know I’m fundamentally okay – avoiding as much stress as possible. Mister Litlove has been suffering from manflu this weekend, so we have been old crocks together.
So thank you once again for all your support. I was deeply touched by your messages and wonder where else it would be possible to find a community that is so genuinely caring and generous outside the book blogging world. You are a very special group of people.
I’ll be back to follow up on those promised posts about books, too.
