Today has been an ok day for me despite being in pain and the usual depressed feelings. First I went to the walk in centre about my intercostal muscular injury and the triage nurse was lovely but the second one implied I had wasted their time going (!) as they do nothing with rib injuries anyway, and although I pointed out that I had come to check what I had injured as I was not sure I felt irritated.
However, a friend is coming for lunch tomorrow and the idea felt too much but I made myself go shopping to get some nice things for lunch and that brightened me up a bit. Then I made myself a really healthy lunch and sat in the garden eating it. The sunshine and flowers really cheered me up and I decided to just do a little bit of pottering to see what I could manage. In the event I spent the whole afternoon working out there despite the pain and now I feel much better for it, still in pain but healthier.
I hope you have all had a good day today too and are enjoying the gorgeous weather where you are.
