Hoping For Sunshine On Wednesday.
All I do these days is lie, here that is the thought that goes round and round in my head of course that is not the entire truth.
When I am down everything gets the same tint, it is after I have let my emotions go freely that I can begin to list for myself what I can actually do.
It’s abit like the film The Life of Brian, so what have the Romans done for us.
Surprise surprise there was a long list of what they had done.
Just like me, I too still do more than I am inclined to give myself credit for when I am not feeling so positive.
Of course I do need appliances, without the adjustable bed lying down is all I would be able to do.
What is causing me considerable anxiety is the fact that the extra time waiting in bed, for this tiny little tear in the skin to heal is not good.
The muscles in my torso are getting very slack, which means that I can not sit upright anymore without adequate support.
I now need constant adjustments as my posture changes all the time, seem to be sagging in the middle.
Must be getting harder for Richie to cope with, as he has more work now and as my condition deteriorates he will have even more to do, so glad he does it.
Had a very useful appointment with Johannake, my new occupational therapist, from the RCA, Amsterdam Rehabilitation Clinic
She advised us to put a pillow between my feet and the foot end of the bed to support my ankles so my feet point upwards and do not flop or point to the side.
This small adjustments has already made a big difference to me, since Johanneke suggested this I have been sitting better
Think these easy tips are the best, an easy solution to a situation that seemed more complex, funny how this simple solution has cheered me up tremendously.
Sadly again no sun today instead it has been overcast grey and dark and raining all day this has been more than compensated by the dogs keeping me amused with their games around me
Hoping that the weather will improve, hoping for sunshine on Wednesday for my birthday.
unbshine On Wednesday.
