I saw my doctor on Monday as I needed to alter my meds. Bad sleeps and much worse restless legs were solved with 5mg of Amitriptyline! I know, so little, but a big difference. Always been a light weight. Never needed more than one glass of wine to be very tipsy.
Anyway, I have not been too good about taking my Vit D but moving to a better area at work, doing a job I love and doing it well helps with confidence. But getting a new puppy is an excellent distraction and has made me extremely happy. She is adorable. A cavalier, tri colour, and very sensitive so no bad words around her or her tail goes down! Helps keep the household calm!
Well I am also walking further! I could barely get down our driveway [just over the length of the car] and now I am building up the distance. I could walk down past three houses two weeks ago - eleven today! I am being careful not to overdo it, and my doctor is pleased too. My hips are groaning at the moment but thats nothing to how they were.
I talked to my doctor about my mobility allowance and he said I would need to be walking a lot further and for a lot longer for me to start worrying about giving it up. The thing I am worrying about is being had for fraud, but he says its not fraud because I do need it. Well I do, but I can walk further than I claimed - but still not far enough. And this may only be a pause. Shame.
Oh well, I will enjoy what I have. I also hope others are this lucky or better too. I am not pain free, but its manageable.
