Been to Rhuemi and........

Postby Mrs T. » Tue Nov 22, 2011 11:25 am

I'm officially one of us now.
I got a leaflet and a talk on "pacing not racing" .
I am so chuffed, at least now I know for deffo that I'm not a lazy old bag and do have something wrong with me.

Advice was to pretty much carry on as I am doing, maybe try for a bit more excercise and she told me that even though it hurts I'm not actually harming myself physically, which is good. And she suggested upping the ami's to 20 mg.
So, puppy time at the beach with a clear conscience and a pocket full of painkillers.
:D

Was lovely beach time thanks. Not too long for a 10 week Afghan but my little bedlington whippet ran enough for them both.
I've got this week off work and its nice weather so I'm making the most of it.
I feel really chuffed after today and kind of feel like I have been given the OK to try do more because previously I always thought that as it hurt it must be doing damage.

Now I know it will always hurt but it isn't doing damage I can try and get on with things a bit more.

She also said try and not sleep in the afternoons if I could help it but that I need a certain amount of sleep and if the afternoon is when I sleep best then go for it as it is only really convention that means we have to sleep at night.

She was a nice lady, poked and all the right places, listened to me and was almost apologetic that she couldn't do more.
And told me not to think its ok to clean the house from top to bottom on the good days. So thats my get out of jail free card on that too :lol:

just take your time with everything
and rest as much as possible.
that's all we can do really is do things as and when we can :yikes:
she sounds like a nice lady, it makes a change to read that a rhumie was nice :D
