Since I started my new job, almost a month ago, I have dreamt that I am at work every night. There is no escape. Even when I am at home my mind wanders to the job. The lack of sleep and nightmares have started to have an impact on my health and I have developed lichen planus on my gums which the dentist informed me is a result of stress and there is no cure!!! My gums are so painful, red and hot and in addition to stress the condition can be diet related. When I told the dentist I had eaten rhubarb before this condition become apparent she said it was one of the worst foods I could eat! I am also to avoid citrus fruit and spicy food.
Today I have treated myself to a magazine. I am hoping that it will help to take my mind off things. I will have a look at it before I go to sleep this evening. I have a little gift of nasturtium seeds in a ceramic pot that I was given at Christmas. I will plant them later and look forward to the first shoots popping up.
