I didn't think I'd done too much, but on Boxing Day I was in sooooo much pain! I think the run up to Christmas is a tense time because everything has to be done to a deadline. Other times, I just say 'that can wait....'

Another one for the 'me too' list.

I actually had two good days before it all started. I remember Sunday like a dream. I just relaxed and enjoyed the least amount of pain I have had for months. I actually sighed out loud with pleasure. I think the fact I was so incredibly happy and thankful for a good day made more impact than all the bad days everyone sees. My daughter looked at me in a way that said ' You REALLY are THAT happy just to have no pain - How BAD must it really be?

The answer to the question of how bad must it really be is - this bad.

The total extremes in less than a week and all because I pushed myself to clean, to entertain and to take part in the celebrations. Something most people take for granted and do not notice the true cost to me - after all, where are they all now? So next time I will be expected to be able to do it all, I will push myself, use my will power to achieve and then pay the piper.

It seems like a it is a way of life for us. To take part, to enjoy the important days we have to make an effort that will always require the payment to the pain piper. Truth is we need those memories, we need those special days, we need to take part in the little things when we can because they are the big things, the important things and the things we will remember till the day we die. They make it worth paying the pian piper every day, it's why we do it.

Still, I'd give my right arm for a pain killer that worked, especially as right now my right arm is screaming it's pain to the middle of my brain! lol

I was lucky enough to go out for xmas dinner so haven't worked hard here but still going out and doing different things has taken its toll.

I haven't learnt a all to pace myself and have had a day of PJ's and sofa

Yeah I say the same thing every time I have a hangover too ;-)

Well done all on surviving Christmas...I think the Christmas/New Year gap was invented for spoonies to recover from the holidays. I cooked for 6 (with help!) on Christmas Day, had to retreat to bed by the evening (getting up to watch the Doctor Who Christmas ep, obviously!)

Was in bed most of Boxing Day. The WORST day so far has to be yesterday though. Sat in the cinema for three hours watching The Hobbit (which was a good film) but I was in SO much pain afterwards I could barely move. Not fun.

I hope everyone's getting the rest they deserve after a busy Christmas! :xmaswave1:
