I’m not sure if I should wish everyone a Happy World Mental Health Day, or not, or how to phrase it but hopefully you get the gist!
I actually meant to blog yesterday but was exhausted and couldn’t manage it. Overnight and today my right hand thumb/thumb joint, that side of the wrist and hand is sore and swollen, not majorly swollen but enough to notice.
I am unsure what has caused this, I am wondering if it is because I used the Mobility Scooter in Asda yesterday and was mainly using my right hand as my left couldn’t seem to do it.
To say that I am getting sick of this now is a bit of an understatement, my walking seems to be extremely bad again this week with me able to walk around the house, if I take it slowly and don’t really do anything. Cooking, washing dishes, laundry, vacuuming etc are way beyond my capabilities, going up the stairs I have had to limit to going down the stairs in the morning and back up at bedtime. If anything needs to be taken up or downstairs I have to rely on Husband and kids for it. The only time I will go up/down the stairs over than those necessary times (get up/go bed) is if I have to use the toilet overnight. We only have a downstairs toilet, which is great for during the day but very much less so overnight!
Oh how I wish I still lived in a flat like I did growing up – seriously how much easier would that make my life now.
I seriously cannot wait until my appointment at the end of the month. I am just hoping that they can help me, as I do not know what I will do if they cannot.
Possibly appropriately, what with today being World Mental Health Day, we have just started watching Afflicted on Netflix. Its pretty interesting so far, but also kinda worrying, especially seeing how bad some people are affected and just how little Medical Health Professionals can actually help, and I am talking about majorly recognised conditions such as ME/CFS etc, (and by that I am not saying that the other conditions shown are not recognised, I am basing it more on a laymans knowledge here).
And just because, here are some links for you all.
