So far, Project Me First (2016) is going well.
I find it fascinating – from a dispassionate, observational perspective – to see the effects of stress ebb and flow, manifesting physically. Eczema, fatigue, the crimson tide … they’re a surprisingly reliable barometer. (I’d also bet my blood pressure has been on a wild rollercoaster, not unlike the stock markets.)

Congrats on the project. Hope Project Me First will be successful. Good luck!
Sorry to hear about the emotional fallout of stress. Tim’s got crazily severe eczema, so I have an inkling of how bad it is. Nothing like horrible itching to further stress that’s exacerbating the itching.
As for the fatigue, I definitely know that one. Try to rest as best you can — which is utterly unhelpful advice during stressful times. But as someone with CFS I know that it’s the only thing for fatigue. Even if it just means staying lying down when you can’t sleep.
I love this version of link love. Those links are interesting to read, actually it will surely relieve my stress. Thanks for sharing these links.
