Totally knackered!

Totally knackered!

I have been completely inactive for longer than I can remember because of chronic inguinal neuropathy, arthritis and fibromyalgia. So like a moron I thought as I am so bored I would go out and use the leaf blower in the front garden!

1.The garden looks much better!

2. It feels somewhat good to have done something physical.


4. Total fatigue and exhaustion.

Conclusion: next time I will drive up and down the street with the leaf blower pointed out of the car window at the leaves!

Lesson learnt.

p.s. by the way it was a nice sunny day!

  • So good to read your post (but not about the pain!). I've got heaps of painful back stuff happening and fibromyalgia - so know what you're going through. But you brought a smile to my dial - and I just wanted to let you know that you've done good for someone today! !! 😊

  • Oops. Hi Dunkdl. I replied in wrong spot to your post. Attached it to Grace. So hard typing on this tiny keyboard and eyes sre also watering so pushing wrong buttons all over the place. Ribbie

  • Numbers 3 and 4 I can totally relate to :-) I was up at 5am this morning - it's my usual waking time from before, when I could go out to work - and I was cleaning up some furniture that I bought on eBay - some vintage G-Plan stuff. So, I cleaned every surface up with neat lavender oil...sometimes I just wonder if it's the over-achievers who come down with chronic pain... :-D Hope you feel better soon and thank you for making me smile this morning :-) Best wishes, Wendy x

  • Hi Dunk, just wanted to say many thanks for the smile (not something I manage too often these days!) is that you in the picture ? If so, it looks as if you have an impressively large garden - do you manage to look after it on your own? I love my garden, but struggle to keep it under control. I do hope your pain settles down soon & the oompah loompas clear off pretty smartish.

  • Hi BBlondie

    Glad it put a smile on your face. Sadly the picture isn't or my garden just a close facsimile.

    Enjoy your weekend.


  • Hey, it's ok. Just make a note of this. You did too much. Maybe next time do only 5 mins. Build up to it. Turn it into part of your Physio ;) Good luck.
