WEEKEND OCTOBER 3
What a weekend ! On Friday I had this nice anti-stress massage, felt tired but well. Suddenly during the night I woke up and thought I had got the flu ! I didn't think of our dear Coronavirus because I didn't have a running nose, no sore throat, didn't caugh and had no fever. But still I took some medication against the flu and tried to continue to sleep.
On Saturday morning I was ready to die ! I felt awful. I spent the day on our sofa watched TV fell asleep and really felt lousy. I had no appetite either. Finally all kind of things went through my mind and I thought maybe what I have is the aftermath of the massage ! I didn't really believe it but I googled and what did I find .....
"Flu-like symptoms are surprisingly common after massages. People often suffer from varying degrees of soreness and malaise following firmer massage therapy — post-massage soreness & malaise, or PMSM . 23 The worst cases feel like a full-blown flu, except it doesn't last nearly as long".
I had never heard of this and was rather surprised that my idea was not so absurd as it seemed. And as usual if you tell people about your miseries, they have all experienced the same, and I was so relieved that I didn't have the flu in these Corona times !
Of course I stopped the medication I had taken and on Sunday morning I felt much better I was still a bit weak and tired but felt completely normal.
I had bought a shelf for our living room and our young friend came to assemble it ! I was really happy about the result !
Now I can empty the last box I have in the basement with books and decoration, I suppose because honestly I have forgotten what is in the box that will be a surprise !!
