So on tope of the pain and the side effects from the drugs is the tedium of such a restricted range of activities. Yes I'm alive and not bedridden but I'm so tired of the few actitvies open to me. I used to wake filled with ideas excited by the possibilities for the day. Simple stuff but satisfying. I'm filled with energy but physically can only manage to walk ten minutes. It might seem inconsequential and pathetic to complain about this but does anyone else suffer this way ? I'm trying hard to see a brighter side but honestly there is only so much time in a day that can be occupied by watching a sparrow collect nesting material !
