Another trip to my GP today to ask for a referral to an orthopaedic surgeon as I am in so much pain in my knee which of course triggers off all the leg and back muscles so am feeling very sorry for myself.
So I decided to think of something positive and thought of my Kindle which I got last year when I had my fourth shoulder operation.
I am a book lover ( books lying all over the house!!!) and didn't want one but a friend suggested getting one because they are easier to manage when you have painful arms or shoulders (despite all the surgery neither of mine are right)
Best thing I ever did - if my left shoulder hurts I can hold it in my right hand and vice versa. I love the way you can adjust the print size and because the screen isn't too bright and I can have fewer words on a page I find it easier to concentrate. Was worried about buying the books, but all the classics are free and there are loads of cheap ones as well.
Now off to try and tidy up the kitchen and sort the washing. Think that will be more than enough for today.
