I finally dragged my butt down to the Ayurvedic centre on James' advice and got treated for the cough, and a whole host of other things I didn't realise were part of the symptoms (insanity was not one of them.. yet). After a two weeks course of the most disgusting medicine I had to drink, I really was not looking forward to more 'poo juice', as a friend of mine put it to me bluntly.

When I came back from my trip to Sarawak, I went back for more torture on the taste buds, which I needed like a hole in the head. I'd been playing host and driver and shopping partner and, and, and the list is endless, to my mother who had come down for a 3 week visit. Now I can hear the groans, but honestly I was happy she came down,.. really... no really! No kidding! I needed someone to take care of me, and who better then your own mum. The clucking, nagging, questioning was nothing compared to the favourite meals cooked, and cups of tea in bed.

However I laughed out loud when I came home one night and she was waiting up for me! I hadn't had that treatment for a long time and it brought back so many memories! It was sweet of her, waiting for her adult daughter in the wee hours of the morning! made me feel 16 again!
Ok ok so she did push me a little to go back to the ayurvedic centre before she left.. (.how do they manage to make you feel like a 10 year old again?....)

So anyways I've gone back to the centre and I am on a 21 day course of oil massages, baths and rice scrub... nothing to complain about... and the medicine isn't too yucky....the oil in the nose and ears a bit freaky, but anything in the name of detoxifying. The after effect is that you feel really tired, and tend to fall asleep early in the day. Trying to answer e mails is an effort, hell thinking of answering the e mails is tiring! The fact that I'm writing is somewhat of a mini miracle zzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............hmmffnn....zz... snork.........
