While mum was ill, I was under constant stress. This went on for five years and nine months. I'm no longer stressed. I have some paperwork to sort out, but I'm no longer dreading hearing the phone ring.
Last night, at the jam session in the Unicorn Pub, I noticed something interesting. I was sitting in front of the loudspeakers, but the loud music wasn't hurting my ears. Normally, I have to use Alpine Music Pro ear defenders. Last night, I didn't need them!
I'm wondering whether I had elevated cortisol all those years. The NHS only tests morning (9am) cortisol.
Here's another photo from the 15th April jam session.
