Not a good day

Sep 19, 2016 10:42 AM

I just cannot catch up on posts. I'm dictating this and apologize to anyone who post is older than the last two days as I will not get to respond to them. My arm is killing me just from my shower and dry my hair this morning. On top of that I took sick over the weekend with an upper respiratory issues and I'm struggling through the cold medicine. I got very faint and dizzy in the grocery store yesterday twice and I know it's from the cold medicine. Woke up this morning and where my leg was bent at the knee all night the upper leg is swollen just at the knee and very painful. I'm doing the exercises that PT told me to do but everything I do with my hand flares up all the way into my scapula and shoulder and neck. So I've given up trying to read post older than 2 days. I'm sorry. Just hope to be able to use my arms soon in a more natural way. Hugs love and prayers to all!

I am so sorry you are hurting very much in shoulder and hands. Makes me cringe for u. I have shoulder, elbow forearm & hand issues. They are ghastly. Take care. We will all still be here waiting 4 u.πŸ€—

Flappys, I wish you strength to get through. Please take care of yourself. You are a wonderful kind person with always some love and support to give. Please turn to yourself for now. It sounds like you are trying your best. You are the most important person right now. This is your time to be kind and gentle to yourself. Take as much time as you need. 🎈Beets πŸ€—

I'm sorry you are struggling. Please take the time to rest and take care of yourself. And dont worry about catching up ever. I think everyone who has not logged in for a few days has looked the list of unread and went 'oh hell no, im not even going to try to read all that'. I know after a week off that's what i did. I did scroll though and read topics that i felt would be beneficial to me but not everything.
Hugs. Hope things start improving for you soon.

Thanks everyone. @Gotobef, your post made me laugh... Thanks! πŸ˜‰ Though the doc says tennis elbow (& injury to shoulder), I'm wondering if it's not also fibro and sjogrens. Nothing, and I mean nothing, helps the pain stop except to stop doing anything. How do you live like that? Hugs love & prayers for all! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ
