Started having problems down my right side last night.. took all the usual meds and took myself off to bed to hopefully 'sleep it off'
Getting out of bed this morning I found myself heading face first into the wardrobe as my leg gave way completely.. What a way to start the day - and I thought Monday mornings were bad!
So rather than going off to work today I am propped up on the sofa with my leg up on cushions with a wheat heat pack over my knee..
Some days it is just 'one of those days' and today I have been abandoned by my usual cheerful optimism, it's sooo frustrating. A miserable nark has seized the opportunity and taken up residence in my head.
I think I need to hide away until normal service is resumed - or watch some daytime television so I can see how much worse it could be!

Poor you, what a horrible start to your morning; no wonder you're feeling fed up!!
Your leg and knee sound very painful; I hope you didn't hurt your face on your wardrobe (hopefully the wardrobe door was open so you made contact with clothes rather than wooden door! ) Sporting a black eye as well as a swollen leg and knee is not a good look!
I do hope the pain in your leg and knee will ease and that you have a better day tomorrow!

That sounds like an awful start to the day, and I can tell you from bitter experience if you watch too much of the daytime TV, if you weren't depressed when you started you will be after!
I hope your day turns better, and the week can only go up from here right?

Better luck tomorrow morning.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for you! That daytime TV can be a real killer so beware! Once upon a time I saw a daytime movie about a woman who has a rare, incuarble disease called scleroderma, she ended up in a body bag. Two weeks late a rheumatologist told me...YOU have scleroderma! Yikes!

I got so many spoons the last few weeks, I'm sending you some of them. They're all pre-drilled for wind chimes, too. Didn't think you needed to be playing with an electric drill!
I hope the inflammation in your feel-bad-itis subsides soon and we don't have to stage an 'intervention' to get you off the daytime telly!

No nose dives into the wardrobe this morning so things are looking up... Thankfully the only thing that got 'damaged' yesterday was my husband's sleep (when the crash woke him up) and my shoulder as I half turned to avoid full facial contact with the wood
Leg is still sore but I didn't really expect it to improve overnight, I have my fingers crossed that another day of heat and rest may do the trick. looks like I may have regained my cheerful optimism too
I decided to give the daytime TV a miss and just settled down with my latest book instead. I sat through a couple of daytime movies but then all the others appeared to be 'weepies' with people dying or leaving each other - time for the book instead!
Amanda I know the film you mean; I did it the opposite way around. I got my diagnosis and months later while still trying to find more information on the condition spotted the film in the TV guide and decided to give it a go.. ooh big mistake. I found it quite disturbing that she went from diagnosis to a 'body bag' in such a short time. At the time I had 2 young sons and the thought of not seeing them grow up scared me silly... I'm still here after all these years tho and have seen both my boys grow into wonderful young men, maybe I'm biased but I'm their mum so it's allowed
Hope everyone has a good day today
