Silly Me!

I am a silly old 'elephant carrier' aren't I?!?

I have been pushing things just a little too much for quite a time now, getting on with life and trying to be all things to all people. Not enough to actually crash, on any one day, but slowly grinding myself into a mushy, achey, braindead and foggy....... mess!

Messy is how I'm feeling just now.
Short post - normal service will be resumed - soon I hope!


  1. I could have written that Zarla. I have been doing the same thing for years. I have finally realised that, much as I would love to, I can't save the world or make things better for everyone however much I wreck myself. It has taken a long time and a lot of heart searching but I have realised that unless I prioritise I am never going to feel well enough to actually enjoy anything or anybody. It has meant making some very difficult decisions and some very unpopular ones but I have realised that if I don't do something I will soon be in no fit state to help anyone, including myself. As I have never said no to anyone in my life if I could help it I have found it extremely difficult but I know that if I am ever to stand any chance of getting any better I need to consider my needs as well as those of everyone else. It is quite a strange feeling after more than 50 years of living my life for other people. Having said all that, I still have time for my friends!! xxx

  2. Same as Cherryl but I stopped trying to rescue and make it all better a good while ago now. I wonder if you are also suffering from PSHRS (Post School Holiday Recuperation Syndrome) ? Very common at start of September :O) Take care and rest

  3. Oh yes-PSHRS is a problem, but I'm also struggling with the symptoms of USFW(Unnecessary Stress From Work)and PREB (Pig Related Errand Burnout)!

    Hope your PSHRS is on the mend Cusp!

    Take care,

  4. Hello Zarla,
    I know exactly are you are feeling I went to the theatre in London this weekend and have been a total mess since,no energy,confused, you know whats it's like. But had a wonderful time so can't complain.

  5. Julie,
    I hope that the show was good, sounds like a great diversion. We all need diversion and good reasons to push the body a little.

    I could never survive if all I could do was sit and monitor the soaps and reality TV, I'm a bit of a stubborn old thing and regularly do a bit too much, my 'elephants get heavy' and it's mostly my own fault!!

    I read from your blog that you like to get out and about too-nothing like a bit of fresh air!

    Just rest and recouperate after your West End weekend. Feel better soon,
