Just wanted to know if all I've got to look forward to is 'falling to pieces'! After working for 5yrs with only 1 day off sick, over the last 12mths I have had 4 separate occassions, totalling 22 days, where I have had to be off work. It seems I get over 1 thing and then something else starts falling apart! As I am approaching 40 (oh no!) I wondered if this is it! Is this my life from now on? One niggle after another? I was hoping that 'life begins at 40' was correct but at the moment it feels like 'life falls to bits from 40'. Please someone out there tell me this is just a bad year and things will get better not that it's all downhill from here! Cos it's really depressing me.
