Hubby set off on his trip to the Bahamas today. He's an engineer and he's gone to survey some jobs on a ship. Anyway this is the first time since I got my problems that I've had to cope on my own. My hands and wrists are pretty painful right now and my toes feel like they've been slammed in a door. It feels as if everything is getting worse but unfortunately my rheumy appt isn't until 2nd May. I may go and have a moan to the GP this week although I doubt it will get me anywhere. I've been buying ibuprofen with my shopping to fend off the worst of the pain but it does wear me down sometimes. There's been no real respite since it began in June so I'm just praying that I will get some help soon. My two dogs don't care about this though and waited outside my bedroom door expectantly for their morning walk. It wouldn't be so bad if they walked nicely on the leads but they're so naughty. My Jack Russell pulls ahead and the labrador drags behind, leaving me flailing somewhere in between. At least the weather is nice today and I was able to enjoy the sunshine. I've got to be firm with myself this week and not comfort eat as I'm still trying hard to get in shape. Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely day and get some sunshine. I'm off to make a sugar free jelly. Since giving up on alcohol and chocolate that's about the limit of my self indulgence these days. Living the high life eh!
