Today my body is reminding me that i over did it on the weekend but in my usual way instead of resting i like to prove who is boss and do the things i planned to do and some. not sure when I will learn that it is ok to rest and that I really shouldnt punish my body because it doesnt work properly. .
RUOK out there today?
There is always a SMILE
in your day,
you just need to find it!
Hi Mrs S,
I have been out of action for a few weeks, due to many things. I am so glad your daughter asked you RUOK, and you fond the courage to get an appointment with your physiologist. I do hope that over the last couple of weeks you have been able to find some ways to help you deal with the many problems that you are facing in a positive and helpful way. Try to stay positive and look for the things that can bring a smile to your face.
I think Im ok today but tomorrow Im going camping for 6 days even though my husband makes me as comfortable as possible I still get freaked out that my pain is going to overwhelm me, and I'm not at home with my comfy recliner to relax in, although I'll still have all my meds with me . Ireally hope that I will be OK anyway will let everybody know how I went in 6 days time.
I am unable to get into a tent but i found a great zero gravity reclining camp chair which enabled me to be comfortable enough to sleep in at night and spend the day in around the campfire. I am not able to help much with the general camp chores due to mobility issues, but camping allows me to spend quality time with family and friends and enjoy the beauty and sounds of nature. We all share the cost of hiring a portable toilet as we camp in the bush on a family owned property and its amazing how much a boost it is for the soul.
I have even taken my reclining camp chair to get togethers at friends homes as it enables me to enjoy a social outing once in a while knowing that i can be as comfortable as i would be in a recliner.
Hope you have a wonderful time away and that your pain levels stay low
