It’s Not Like It Used To Be

Posted by | Posted in Random | Posted on 29-01-2009

Woke up with a headache this morning, which I’ve still got, in fact. I hate that. I can’t really understand why you wake up with a headache (unless it’s a hangover) when all you’ve been doing is sleeping.

The fact that I find it par for the course these days just goes to remind me how much I accept at face value now, compared to a few years ago. That probably sounds strange, but I’ve noticed it quite a lot recently, and more often than not it relates to health issues. A few years ago, I would never have even contemplated taking a paracetomol tablet for a headache, because I very rarely got a headache at all, and I wanted to know if there was something wrong. These days, I get a headache regularly throughout the week, and I simply take some tablets to cover them up. I’d have never done that before, so why is it acceptable to me now? Do I somehow regard my health as less important now than I did a few years ago?

The same can be said for aching bones and joints. I used to be slightly more supple (and fitter) than I am now, and if I could look at myself now through the eyes of the person I was a few years ago, I’d be mortified. I think that’s where the motivation for the gym membership comes from. At least I know I can be better than I am, and I’m doing something about it.

I blame work and stress. Without those, I’d be happy as Larry. I guess the fact that I need work to live, and that work happens to bring stress, just means I have to put up with it. It’s a shame really, but then, everyone else has to live with it too.

If I get time, I’ll write some more random nonsense, but for now (and for once) I’ve actually got some work to be doing.
