Sunday Morning Coming Down

Once again, my apologies for the lack of posts recently.

I’ll spare you the gory details, but long-time readers will know that I suffer from psoriasis and that back in 2018 I was hospitalised when a flare-up in my condition led to me being diagnosed with something much more serious.

Recently, I’ve had a similar flare-up, this time affecting my hands, which started peeling then became cracked and split: I’ve literally not been able to type.

I’ve not ruled out it being serious again this time, so if I disappear offline again shortly, you’ll know why.

In the meantime, this: I knew that Johnny Cash had brilliantly covered Nick Cave’s The Mercy Seat but I had forgotten that the two of them duetted on this Hank Wiilams cover until it popped up on my iPod shuffle on the way into the office the other day:

Johnny Cash & Nick Cave – I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

More soon, hopefully.

  1. Oh no, so sorry to hear you’ve been suffering again, sounds awful – really hope this flare up subsides asap and that you don’t need to worry about anything more.

  2. Sorry to hear about your ailments Jez
    I too have psoriasis which comes and goes but is thankfully not as bad as yours from what you describe.
    Hopefully listening to Johnny and Nick will sreed up your recovery

  3. Been away on holiday and had hoped that, by now, you would have been back writing again. Really hope you’re not too poorly and on the mend. Take care.
