Re: Life is changing so fast...
Days of pampering; yes a very good plan. I shall devise a list and take advantage of the time off from work.
Trigger spotting could prove useful too. I'm trying a gluten free diet just now; only on day two. I was inspired by some work being done at Sheffield University. Nothing to lose. I find taking short breaks without noise or visual stimulus quite helpful; a sort of switching off I suppose. A regular sleep pattern helps.
Anyway, thanks for your useful reply. I am appreciative of the support because as I said in my original posting I think it's hard for those around me to understand. Also I don't want over burden them.
