After a recent bout of googling symptoms, I decided to present myself at my doctor’s office for a full run-down of my ailments. On the day, the ailment ‘run-down’ seemed to point to my being actually run-down. Ah, being run-down... that most infuriatingly vague and seemingly constant state.

The visit to the GP was punctuated by the kinds of questions that feel like a deliberate act of provocation. I described my night sweats and he asked if I was stressed. STRESSED! “I’m alive,” I yelped. “Of course I’m stressed.”
