I got up early this morning after having a very disturbed night yet again. I had to get up at 2am with severe hip/pelvic pain, simply could not lie in bed. Took painkillers and crawled back to bed at 4am. Anyway, had to be up by 8am as a Tesco delivery expected, and also hubby was going over to collect grandson for a boys day out, they have gone to see The Hobbit at new IMAX cinema in town.
I had made up my mind that I was going to say blow it to my pain and fatigue and I was going to do housework and get the carpet shampooed. Well that must have been a mystical fantasy my brain dreamed up !!! Because here I am now slumped in my chair desperately trying to muster up some energy to even think about cleaning the wretched carpet. My 90'yr old father came Saturday (he's fit and very sprightly unlike his wreck of a daughter) and he trod his dirty shoes all over our cream lounge carpet, I could have murdered him !! Hence the need for shampoo. When hubby returns this afternoon he will be expecting a gleaming shiny house, with clean carpets rac. Think he is in for a shock, because I don't have the strength to push the heavy carpet machine, it's just impossible. As I say I had full intentions to get things done but I have been thwarted once more by my wretched body, so fed up.
My horrendous rash, on my upper body continues to rage and I am still awaiting a dermatology appointment for biopsy. My bloods have come back showing some positivity for lupus but still need this biopsy. Meanwhile I am off MTX still and just taking painkillers and using copious amounts of steroid cream on my rash, together with deep moisture lotion. I am going to try and attach photo of my arm if anyone can bear to look at it.
It's just over four weeks to youngest daughters wedding. How am I going to cope looking like this, I am so upset.
On a lighter note, my lovely Tesco delivery man brought all my shopping into the kitchen for me, putting it all on the work surfaces so I did not have to pick anything up off floor, how wonderful is that ? Lynda xx. Ps - please take no notice of the half eaten yogurty rice cake on the pic. Haha.
