I Am So Sore From Going Shopping Yesterday

4 posts in this topic

My mom and I went to a lot of shops and now my back and hips hurt so bad. I have pain every day but this is gotten worse. It worn me out. Today if I go any where I am gonna have to use my cane. I had woke up 2 hours ago and I am so sore. Thinking of junping in the tub for a bit. I wish I had a hot tub that would be awesome. Howie rubbed my back before he left work.

 

I want to do some baking today but I'm not sure if that is gonna happen or not. Well I jut wanted to check in. Take care Sam

Hey Sam,

I hear ya!!!! A warm bath with 2 cups of Epson Salt does wonders for sore muscles and achy joints. But a hot tub sounds GREAT!

 

Hope you get some relief soon :D

Hi Sam: Last year I made a decision to do ALL my shopping on the internet - even for the local friends and family members - it was so successful that I'm doing it again this year and that will leave me with time to bake or decorate and have a cup of tea with friends. I just don't enjoy the crowded shops (all those sniffling and sneezing well-intentioned folks) anymore. The limited amount of time each day that I have to feel somewhat "painfreeish" (my new word), has been allocated to other things. Stay warm and enjoy your baths!!! - Ann

I take my cane with me anytime I go, because I almost always need it. It does come apart so I can put it in my bag if it gets in the way. I have found that anytime I go out to do shopping, I am down for about three days after. Recently my son visited from the US and I planned active days between resting at home days and tried to arrange cooking, etc. with less involvement from me. I stocked up on paper plates, for example. I have found it helps to try to take a short nap every afternoon which revives me in time for the evening. Like Ann says, I have come to completely depend on the internet for shopping. I started very early this year with holiday gifts so I don't have to go out at all during the crowded times.

 

As for baking, I plan ahead by doing that day's regular meals with leftovers or take out and use my food processor to make cookie dough instead of mixing by hand. I use baking parchment for easy cleanup after. The smell lifts my spirits considerably.


Warm wishes,

Jefa
