Jet Lag day 5

I haven’t mentioned this before, because I know how lucky I am to be able to fly to San Francisco to spend time with my family, and i didn’t want to be a Moaning Minnie, but…

I’ve had really bad jet-lag, worse than last time. I shan’t rehearse the symptoms, because listening to other peoples’ health problems is tedious, but this morning when I was stumbling around the kitchen, Dave asked me to describe how I felt. So here goes – it’s like waking up and feeling as if your brain is submerged in jelly and it takes the whole morning to get clear of it.

The other night when i was awake from 1 a.m. till 5 a.m. I looked it up in the net and found that:

  1. It is worse when travelling west to east (that’s me)
  2. It takes a day to recover from every time zone you cross (that’s 8 in my case)
  3. And it gets worse the older you get (oh, goodie!)

So please forgive my not posting much. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. And if any of you have any remedies or prophylactics, please let me know.
