Frustration!

Oh dear - no walk to the paper shop today. It's already afternoon and I'm still hobbling around - can't manage to stand up straight today, let alone walk. A combination of an arthritis flare and sleeping in a strange bed, I think! Hopefully things will be better tomorrow - although one good thing is that I stood on the scales this morning and I have lost 2kg, so it's not all bad!

Sorry you are in pain. Hope you pick up soon. Well done on the 2kg that is really good for this time of year. Look after yourself you will back out there soon. Rfc x.

Oh that's totally frustrating Kay. I hope the flare up is short lived so you can keep up with the children.

I know how you feel I woke up today and I couldn't bend my leg because of the MS. Plus I was having brain fog so I couldn't do much at PT.

kay50, congrats on losing weight (and I know how hard it is to lose even 1 kg), but sorry that your arthritis is acting up. I too have osteo-arthritis with good and bad seasons. Not too bad because in Bangalore, India, we don't experience severe cold weather like up north. I find ginger tea is great to reduce inflammation in the body. I've been having it for over 15 years and find it really helpful. I also listen to Gregorian plainchant which I find deeply comforting. Holding your hand from Bangalore and hope tomorrow's better for you!

Oh Suryakaizen, thank you so much for such a lovely, supportive post! You know, I'd forgotten about ginger - and I have some in the fridge! I'm going to grate a spoonful right now and have some comforting tea!

Oh dear! I hope you're feeling better now. I's horrible to feel like that; I find itdifficult if I've had a long run of doing well. Yay for the 2kg (I think I've found it...)!
