Hi everyone hope you had a good weekend.
I'm having a nightmare of a few days. Was on my way to work on Thursday when I decided to take a dive off of the pavement.
I couldn't get up as had lost the use of my left arm having fallen heavily on it.
Luckily 3 x recycle men helped get me upright.
Walked slowly to work as left arm
Killing me. Arrived burst into tears, not my finest moment, and work first aider took me to A&E.
honestly thought it was badly bruised but X-rays showed I had dislocated my shoulder and fractured my elbow.
3 weeks off work, left arm is immobilised in sling for 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks light duties and intimated physio would be needed. My right knee is also badly banged up, see pic.
I still can't believe it happened. My Manager doesn't appear to be best impressed but hardly wished it on myself. Problem is if I'm not there she has to do some work so will be interesting.
As you know from my previous post I was having great difficulty with fatigue, even got around to making an appointment with my Rheumy but sadly all on hold now as hard to get around.
Existing on 3 hours sleep at mo as shoulder in agony. Not looking forward to next few months 😥
Have some great friends who have rallied and even a few family members so some back up. It shows who your true friends are in these circumstances.
