Feeling sorry for myself as i hurt so much this morning.

Feeling sorry for myself as i hurt so much this morning.

I have had two wonderful days in the garden and have enjoyed it greatly. I also made a fish pie for Saturday lunch as Bob was sown the allotment getting it ready to put a shed up.So i thought it would be a nice surprise for him to have it ready for him. Making the sauce and cooking the fish was the easy bit,but peeling the potatoes well that was a whole lot of problems. I have found i can't use a knife to peel them with as my knuckles won't bend enough to do it,so i had to use the peeler and it was not easy,but i managed it somehow.

Then after lunch i went out into the back garden as we are doing a bit of a make-over and a lot of plants need relocating and i spent the afternoon doing that and i also did the same Sunday morning and worked until lunch and i rested the rest of the day. Satureday night i could hardly move and during the night i had to take some pain killers.

Now i have got up this morning in agony,what hurts,well my back for a start,shoulders,hands well they hurt the most. So i have to resist the temptation to go and do anything out there only to sit and enjoy the sun and do mycolouring books. I hope you all enjoy the sun as well.

I went to the drs this morning and he has given me some gel for my hands. I also got weighed and i am now 15st 23lbs.xxxxx

  • Glad to hear your feeling brighter as well. I feel great in my head no depression,but my body is a different story,it hurts like hell. Thats the price i pay for gardening. When the weather is lovely like it is at the moment i want to get outside and do things. So i am trying to a little bit each day then stopping and trying to rest.xxxxx

  • hello, sylvi.I am in theUSA. I have problems with RA as well as some other stuff. I noted that you have trouble with peeling with a knife. I too. I have several large handled peelers, and these don't make my hands hurt nearly as bad as using a kitchen knife. I hope you begin to have more good days soon.

  • Thank you all for your lovely and helpful comments,t is nice to know i am not alone. Still hurting as i did a bit more gardening yesterday,but i didn't over do it this time out there,but i then in the afternoon did some polishing in my lounge.Back aches this morning as do my fingers,but if it is the price i have to pay then so be it. I will try and have a day of rest today.xxxxx

  • Hi Sylvi. You are entitled to feel sorry for yourself. It isn't self indulgent, it is self preservation! Everyone feels sorry for themselves when they are hurting. You are a very brave lady to do all that gardening when you have such problems. Don't be hard on yourself. Wow! the weight loss is fantastic. Losing weight is a difficult thing to do. Give yourself a pat on the back, put your feet up and read a good book so you can lose yourself in it. I hope you are feeling well again soon. xx
