Well after my post yesterday re work colleague commenting i looked really well i started questioning my own recovery. Maybe i shud be moving more? Maybe i should be doing more house stuff? Should i have let the doctor extend my leave to 3 weeks??? I can now assure you that the only question i shud answer yes to is the last one. I did a little cleaning of the bathroom and putting washing out which involved bending, squatting down and stretching in diff ways, i stayed up a little later (telling myself i hadnt really been tired all day) and then off i went to bed..to sleep .....or so i thought!!! Up most of night with extremely tight pulling stomach pains and back pains!!! Drifted off a little but got up walking like an oap this morning!! Lesson learnt....nobody can see inside of you or feel your pain.....never feel guilty for putting on make up to cheer yourself up......and you are in charge of your recovery so listen to your body and take care of it.
