This is what chronic stress can do to wreck your immune system. A year of subconcious stress caused by my day job and a simple spider bite turned into three days on the couch with a fever. Plus antibiotics and antivirals. Not fun. And hopefully not again. Making the lifestyle changes required to eliminate the stress.

Unofficially single. Returned from an 8 day stay on Guam where an uncontested divorce takes only 7 days. Still waiting for the official paperwork to arrive. When I returned to Bangkok from Hawaii, I learned the boss was relocating to the US and I was left "in charge". Company has not been profitable and though there are potential new business, it's uncertain, maybe 35% chance of happening. So I now have the unpleasant task of downsizing the company. Stress is the major challenge. Getting back on track with exercise and nutrition, so hopefully it will help me keep life in balance. Still working on losing some of the February weight. Stumbled on the concept of primal, so will be truly eliminating wheat to see if that helps.
