Pippi - yes, I think you may have got something about the trauma. I keep getting sick when I exercise more and I do wonder if I haven't built up enough base fitness at a lower level and am trying to push too much. I am finding it hard to judge though because I spent so long doing physio every day that I thought I had that base level.
I think that might be part of the puzzle. Stress, time of year and loads of bugs on campus might be the rest.
Stronghold certainly does both fleas and worms - that's the one our vet recommends but I used to use Frontline. Actually I think Coco might be allergic to Stronghold so I'm going to try her back on Frontline for a while to see if she stops rubbing her whiskers off.
Thanks for all the support guys - I will watch and wait to see what happens regarding my periods, but for the rest I rather think it is stress and being run-down which a holibob will sort.
And I managed to trash my right wing mirror this evening - I took a width restriction a touch too fast (30 mph!) and clipped the bollard. The same width restriction bollard I've driven through thousands of times before
I just wish someone would tell my why my period is 2 weeks late (no, def not THAT reason - I did a test yesterday); why I am always getting sick when I've been exercising; why I am so tired and why I seem to be messing everything up right now Not a good patch.
