I was thinking the other day about how many of the people I know who have had bad health or died since being in France. I was trying to evaluate whether this was to do with my age, although I am not 60 and my husband is only early 50s.
I am curious to know if anyone else has found it the same?
For example, 2 friends died of heart attacks within a few months of each other, I had cancer return 6 months after living here, I have several friends who have also had cancer, others that currently have it too and of course the common one, back problems. The list for those is a mile long, including myself. Several have had to have operations on their backs.
For the back problems, its probably because we come from less manual jobs and then start working on huge gardens etc, so they can be explained. In my husband's case his is from drilling through the stone walls here, you didn't get many of those in the UK LOL.
The cancer one I find quite concerning because of the quantity.
However all my friends in the UK are all pretty fit for their ages and don't seem to have any of these problems.
Perhaps it is just coincidence in my case. What do you think?
