Made the mistake of not keeping to low alcohol intake and let the wheat-free diet slip, so have been paying the price for the last couple of mornings and feeling the anxiety and depression creeping in. Unlike forty years ago; I know where the seeds of my trouble are seated and will be back on an even keel within the next day or so. Just keeping away from alcohol, caffeine, and gluten keeps things in perspective. Sounds strange, I know! The short daylight hours have been a pain and interfere with my getting out on the coast, but having been retired for the last six years, I am not too bothered by the short days. I do feel sorry for you folk that have to squeeze more work into shorter daylight hours. IHA; what would happen if you stopped paddling and went with the flow?
