one of the weirdest thing i ever had is something called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benign_paroxysmal_positional_vertigo). apparently there's a bunch of crystals inside your ear in a tiny chamber that play a big role in how you experience balance. if you dislocate them it fucks everything up. especially sleeping becomes terrible, you have the feeling of falling down an endless black whole, spiralling down out of control. another weird thing is walking up or down stairs, it's as if they extend endlessly. good thing is that it goes away after a weeks by itself.

I had something like this after playing one of the Uncharted games on PS3. I dunno what happened, but I ended up with motion sickness and it felt like I was at sea for about a week. Corridors tilting, floors undulating.

Still the throat. I didn't follow my ENT specialists advice, and when will I? Acid reflux diet is hideously prohibitive. No drinking and smoking to start with!

Perhaps come January I'll swear it all off. I had a pill on Friday and feel like killing myself today.

Hey, it's long gone. I caught it at the Oasis swimming pool in Covent Garden. Don't go there! I had to get a prescription for Bazooka.

I had it for ages, though, on the bottom of my foot. I was so stupid that I didn't know what to do about it. I brought this gel from Boots which I gleefully applied, but that just seemed to make the veruca turn white and expand. One night I was so drunk and half-crazed, I tried to dig it out with a pair of scissors. I woke up with a howling hangover, lying next to a pair of blood-stained scissors and surrounded by bits of dead veruca. It was still there, though, on the bottom of my foot, but now inside a big crater with walls of dead flesh cells. It started to infect my mind, which was already a little unbalanced at that point, so that I imagined two possibilities: 1) that the veruca would carry on growing until I was walking around on a big veruca-shaped stump rather than a left foot, like those feral pigeons you see in Soho Square or 2) it wasn't even a veruca but a slow-burning ebola strain that was going to swallow my entire foot and maybe my leg, torso, face, everything.

In the end I went to the doctor.
