Poor Toni Street has been through a lot lately …
After an allergic reaction to antibiotics, which caused acute liver failure, she’s suffered from fatigue, nausea and itching – which she has described as having ‘spiders underneath your skin’.
Talking to Stace & Flynny Toni says she’s hopeful that come Monday, she’ll finally be back on the air.
“We’re so glad you’re picking up,” Stace told Toni, before imparting some words of wisdom.
“[But] please don’t push yourself so hard!"
“You are always so conscientious, so hard working, but you’ve asked a lot of your body in the last couple of years and you have a beautiful new baby on the way, [so] can I please just say, it’s OK to take a moment and look after yourself.”
Toni agreed and revealed that her mother had given her similar advice.
“I am taking it on board because I tell you what, this has floored me the last 6 weeks and it’s given me quite a new appreciation for [self-care],” she said.
“You’re a Super Woman, but even Super Woman [needs a break]” Stace added, “You don’t want to be Spider Woman, OK!”
“I do not want to be Spider Woman,” Toni replied, “Wonder Woman, yes. Spidey, no!”
