I'm a patient person normally, but this last month hasn't been normal, having put my body through an enforced flare, stopping the Humira and now MTX as the bloods are off the scale. For those not aware having Op on Thursday as Ulnar nerve trapped.
Well I had a heart to heart with hubs as he caught me washing my hair in the sink as my shoulders were so bad I couldn't move them. He hadn't realised that at times the pain and stiffness was so bad I've had to just do a strip down wash. yet we have a beautiful bathroom with walkin shower downstairs on the middle floor. Thats when Iv'e realised that the house has got to be adapted to me, or we move.Once I knew that there has been no stopping me, I've had the house valued last week, and asked the estate agent to send details on bungalows. Then Iv'e popped into the N'able shop I had a look at one of the blow up /down bath seats, and much more I had the chappy from Stannah stair lifts in to look at the stairs. So I have a lot of searching to do within myself as well, we have a lovely bedroom an attic conversion with en suite with bath hence bath seat,the view is lovely we can see right over the Clopton Hill and in any season you can stand and look out at the wonderful scenery, but to get there is 2 flights of stairs not good.
So move downstairs you say. I will then have to have the bedroom downstairs funished and decorated so more expense, The furniture upstairs was flat packed and built up there. The bed was even taken off it's frame and put together. If we move to the bedroom downstairs we will have the benefit of the walk in shower on the same floor as me. So very confused as to what to do.
Then I've been off work for a month now, and I don't get paid any sick pay just SSP for 26 weeks. Then I'm not really sure if I should go back or even worse want to go back to work Do you get the picture I'm JUST NOT SURE
