I've been making an effort this week to take more control of my health. I phoned the GP surgery and confirmed my rheumatology referral has been done at last. I've stuck to my calorie controlled diet and cut out alcohol. I've invested in some multi vitamins and glucosamine/omega 3 capsules. Although I don't know if these things will help, it makes me feel better for trying.
I also filled out the forms for a swimming contract as I love swimming and exercise can only be good. This took me a while to do as I'm not good with a pen right now so it looked like a spider had gone wild on the page. Anyway, before setting off I pulled out my swimsuit from the back of the drawer, you know the type with the super sucky in tummy panel, great for my flabby 43yr old belly. Unfortunately my best made plans went a bit awry when I couldn't pull my swimsuit on. My poor stiff fingers were having none of it. In the end after much straining and pain I had to give up I could buy a baggy swimsuit but don't feel confident having my tummy free to do its own thing! Suppose I could do a little more walking with the dogs in the evening instead. Now all I can do is get on with things and hope for an early appointment. x
