This time last year, I was worrying about a strange sensation of numbness that was creeping across my body as I was in training for the London Triathlon.
"It started on Monday last week, when I woke up with pins & needles in my right hand, and over the course of the week it has spread up my arm, down the right-hand side of my chest, ribs and back, and now seems to be working its way down my thigh. Although I have a kind of constant dull tingling feeling, I otherwise have sensation and full motor control and it is clearly not inhibiting me very much. But my pain receptors seem to have been dulled, even switched off, and everything I touch feels somehow very far away. It's a disconcerting feeling."
Around about this time two year's ago, I was reflecting on how little my job had changed since my outsourcing.
"Same job, same salary, same everything."
Plus ça change, eh?
