I am going to talk to my doctor about taking the ‘flu vaccine. Here, you are invited to have it if you are over 65 (I am 64); as I have the dubious honour of being ‘high risk’, they will give it to me if the doctor thinks I need it. My sister keeps on telling me to take supplements, but I am already taking calcium and I have never been one for homeopathic remedies, no offense to anyone who chooses to take them. With me, it is all in the mind: when I start worrying about things my defences just fall like a stack of dominoes. I have been a bit worried about several people and, at times, found it difficult to keep calm. Personally I believe that the best way to follow the kind of treatment I had is to eat well, exercise, stay positive, spend time with people you like and pamper yourself a little, but isn’t that true for all sorts of situations?
