I just posted a question and when I read through it I felt so pathetic. Can anyone relate to my day? It's 5 o clock in the afternoon. I am still in my nightdress. I washed my face this morning but have not brushed my hair. Earlier, around 11 am I attempted to put the washing on the line only my left leg and arm didn't work so good and it took me about 20 mins as I had to keep pulling the line down with my right arm as the left one wouldn't reach up due to weakness. I didnt bother with the socks and underwear as they are too fiddly and I didn't have the stamina. I went out in the garden in my nightdress and bare feet as putting on shoes would have spent energy I don't have. I've rested all day, in between trying to write a letter lying down in my bed as cant sit up due to no energy and it will hurt my back.
I just got up and went into kitchen passing the basket of ironing I keep telling myself I will do tomorrow. I washed up a few glasses and mugs, wiped surfaces. I really wanted to Hoover as my son brought his hairy dog around yesterday but I find myself back in bed resting trying to muster up the energy to do it.
Hubby will have to do it when he gets home from work as well as get the washing in ( good job it didn't rain !) as well as post my letter and cook the tea. I feel so guilty as he has worked all day and I feel useless and lazy.
I'm gonna try to get up again so that I can be dressed before he gets home so he doesn't think I'm too much of a slob! But I've got pain and heaviness in my arms and legs so it's gonna be tough. I feel like I can't breathe on exertion.
When I was young I lived next door to a lovely lady in her 40's who apparently had manic depression. She was always in the garden in her dressing gown, had grey hair and had regular ranting meltdowns. I said to my husband that I've turned into her, I feel like a bag lady sometimes! I do often wonder about her though. I wonder if she might have had a thyroid condition.
