Being my usual self, I've never been one to sit back and watch other people work. I like to get stuck in, and help out. And although I got a lot tired-er a lot quicker than everyone else, I never thought anything of it. Then I got my diagnosis, knew why I was so tired and sore, and even then there was no way was I going to let that stop me.
However, for the past 2 months, I've been signed off from work after a severe flare up, meds not working, and constant pain in my hip which is literally crippling me and it's difficult to walk. Any normal person would rest and try and get better right? Me, no.
I know its stupid, and I'm doing myself more damage than good, but I can't sit back and watch everyone else work, no matter how much my mum and boyfriend nag me. I like to help! Until my boyfriend & mum physically sits me down and practically trap me there, and as soon as I move, I get shouted out. In all fairness, they are looking out for my best interests, and for that I thank them. And I know I need to rest more, but I honestly can't do it!
I think my new motto for this week is to sit back and relax. I need to, because I am in agony everyday, and no amount of steroids or painkillers is helping, and hey, hopefully the sun will come out and I can lounge in the garden. In a hoodie and trackies so I don't get the most unsightly rash ever all over my body which has become a permanent fixture on my face! Oh the joys of being a lupie.
