I am sorry not to be responding to the comments at the moment. I am grateful for them.
Day 4, the first time in a long time that I have got this far. I still feel physically horrible, and a sort of depression hangs over me. I can’t seem to shake it off. My husband came back home last night, having been away for a few days – I had missed him terribly, but I still found myself starting an argument, and being terribly irritated and ratty. I hope he can forgive me. I told him about the sponsor; he was a bit bemused, I think, but he supports me.
My numb fingertips and – oddly – slightly numb nose tip are worrying me. What damage have I done?
