I've not been out in the evening now for nearly a year but last night I attended my youngest son's engagement party. Knowing how my body reacts to too much activity in one day, I took it easy and only went and had my hair cut before going out. I drove there, walked the few yards to the venue, sat in a comfy chair most of the evening and did circulate a little and I mean a little. I got home just before midnight and I felt like I'd hit a brick wall. I ached all over, especially my back, fell into bed but had trouble just moving I hurt so much. I had trouble getting off to sleep, despite taking my usually meds and then woke an hour or so later feeling like I had the worst hangover ever. I had not touched a drop of alcohol. I tossed and turned all night and at 6:30 this morning I gave in and got up. Now at nearly 11:am I could happily crawl back into bed. BUT...I am going out to lunch today, at 1:30, with my eldest son, who I have not seen for over two years, he lives and works in South Africa. He's only here for today so I have to go, and of course want to go but I need a quick fix to feel better. I look and feel like death warmed up at the moment. Help.
