Felt a bit useless and left out today πŸ˜”

We had a safe-handling course at work today. After filling in the form at the beginning of the day about medical concerns etc (including: which part of your body is in pain etc) I, of course couldn't take part in anything 'hands on!' It looked great fun for everyone who could participate. There aren't too many times when 'it' gets to me - but today was one of them πŸ˜•

  • I understand how you feel

    Have a lovely weekend πŸ˜€

  • Yes I know how you feel although I am 71 was used to a busy and fulfilling life to now not being able to do much at all. This awful.disease is the pits. Sending you love and hugs Linda xxxx

  • I know how you feel. I work with children with special needs & challenging behaviour.

    I can no longer assist colleagues when a childs behaviour suddenly changes, I just have to step aside. All I really want to do is get in there & help out. πŸ˜•

  • Bless you. Sometimes it does got home. I did a training day last Saturday with football. One part was first aid. I had to tell a white lie and say I had a knee injury so couldn't get down to do CPR. That was ok dummy on the table but oh it did hurt my wrists trying to do compressions. Didnt Finnish it thankfully someone joked about me needing a stool and we moved on.

    I know how you feel. Think of the plus things. X

  • I'm a nurse and we have mandatory CPR training bi annually which we need to do. I told the assessor of RA so only did a couple of compressions but participated in the rest.

  • Probably for the best that you did that though, just in case you flared everything back up and made things worse.

    I did a Management of Violence and Aggression course last week, and had to fill in one of those forms, and totally played down my symptoms as I was too embarrassed to make a fuss in front of everyone. Then when we started doing some of the manoeuvres I had second thoughts about whether or not I should be actively participating in it. But guess what... I stayed quiet and got on with it! I got away with it this time.

    I'm meant to refresh my CPR training but the whole thought of kneeling on the floor and doing that is a step too far at the moment as still having problems with my knee and ankle. My manager has agreed that I can postpone this training until I'm a bit better.

    Know how you're feeling, it can really get you down sometimes. I figure that I would rather make the adjustments at work though so that I can enjoy my home life a bit more. That's my priority. I would give anything to have my old self back though. x

  • Ah bless you Linda. It's good that you don't try and let it get to you most of the times. But of course it will get to you sometimes, and I admire you that you cope with it as well as you can and you never know people may look at you and admire you for the way that you do cope. πŸ‘πŸ‘ Sending you a warm hugs πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— Take good care of yourself. 🌷🌺🌸🌹 xxx Jan
