I live in a retirement complex and last night we had a Christmas party organised by two of our ladies in the residents lounge. The place was a mess and it was decided to clean up this morning and me and another resident volunteered to help. They were meeting at 09.00. My problem is that I felt so ill this morning when I woke up (headache and pains all over my body) that I couldn't go and help. I will try to explain when I see them but does anyone think they will understand? It is so difficult to explain this condition to anyone who doesn't have it or even heard about it. I still don't feel well even after taking pain killers, but I do feel guilty about not turning up. I was stupid to volunteer I guess. By the way there were enough able bodied people to clean up. Have any of you been in a similar situation?
