I know it’s bad because it’s put me off booze. I’ve sided up on flu tablets and coffee and about to attempt the lawn mowing. Nice knowing you all.

no physical ailment today, just in a really foul, pissed off mood, don't even know why.

started with an argument this morning with the Mrs, and just carried on, everything everyone says or does is pissing me off today in the office, even my buddy who I'm meant to be going pub with tonight has pissed me off texting me winding me up, still banging on about my crash from nearly 2 years ago, its just friendly ribbing but Im effing sick of it now, I dunno, I'm just a miserable sod

My left shoulder is killing me, The front part at the arm joint is very achy. I think I'm falling apart.

I get like this leading up to going offshore again, which is now (leave in 6 days). I know it happens and so does Jess, she is very understanding and talks me down off the ledge very well.

Things that work for me mate that maybe you could try.

Take time out for yourself, even if it’s 20 mins. I put headphones on and listen to music and shut my eyes, and slow my breathing down.

Practice some mindfulness. Focus on what you have achieved rather than what you haven’t got done, things you’ve enjoyed rather than things that have pissed you off. If negative thoughts interrupt, acknowledge them but don’t dwell on them, counter them with a positive thought and let them go.

Do some exercise, even a walk.

I struggle to follow this advice myself when in a funk, but if you can, it really helps.

I've got the same in my right shoulder.. and no idea why! I too feel like I'm falling apart.

Last time I tried to train upper body I only managed 3x6 of 16kg dumbbell press which is half of my usual weight! Does your shoulder feel generally weak too? Like it could easily dislocate or twist too far?

It feels weak and it feels tired. There's a constant dull ache. It's very strange.

It does sound very similar to what I'm experiencing. Do you know what started yours? I strained mine about 4 weeks ago, after 1 week it was back to normal but for the last few days it's been crap

No idea. I can't think of a trigger for it.

My PT reckons it's the head of the biceps tendon that's damaged.

Ooof.. Nothing worse then a sore head.

Woken up to no voice. The kids don’t take you seriously when you try to tell them off and you sound like a dog that’s swallowed a squeakie toy.

A lack of sleep. No idea why I couldn't sleep. When I did drop off I woke myself snoring (facepalm)

My knee.

No idea what I've done or what has happened to it, it was fine walking into work this morning, but as the day has gone on my knee seems to have swollen and is trying to seize up.

It's not very comfortable.

RICE..

Ice was definitely the single most significant factor throughout my knee injury
