I’m fine when working, but stop for a second and I’m ill

Have your say

Just before I came out to New York I started feeling really poorly.

I’d been fighting off a cold for weeks, but was relatively okay apart from a few sniffles.

Although I’d still been doing some work from home, I’d started to wind down and my body clearly thought it was in holiday mode.

I was hit with a full-blown cold and mouth ulcers, exactly the same as happened when I was in Cuba earlier this year for my sisters’ weddings.

I went to the doctors and was given some antibiotics, plus was told that this is how my body deals with relaxation after a lot of work and stress.

So let me get this straight – I’m fine all the time I’m working my backside off, but stop for a second and I’m ill.

Great. My body hates me.
