Those that suffer from a chronic illness or a disability understand just how frustrating it can be when it holds you back from getting out and about. These illnesses and conditions can make working, socialising or even just popping to the shops problematic and especially if you do not have somebody that you can rely on to take you.
I decided that 2018 was going to be the year I finally started taking self care and “me time” seriously. It was a main feature in my 2018 hopes and dreams post. So I thought I would write a post about exactly what that was going to involve.
I wasn’t sure what to call this, it isn’t a post filled with new year’s resolutions and it’s isn’t really a bucket list as such. I guess it really just is a collection of the hopes and dreams for 2018. I am trying not to put too much pressure on myself as I know that stress of any sort causes massive flare up issues for me. I hope that I can achieve everything on this list, but if I don’t… there is always next year!
Well… hello strangers, it certainly feels strange to be back here, though I suppose that should come an no surprise as it’s been eight months since I last posted. To be perfectly honest I wasn’t sure that I would every post on here again.. without sounding wanting to melodramatic, when I stopped blogging in February I was… broken?… empty?… I just switched off and shut down.
I can’t believe it’s been nearly two months since my last Pain Management Session. It feels like I have been so busy in the mean time that it’s just flown by. But then Christmas and the New Year are always manic. Since my last session I have been to see the Physiotherapist (that was mid December) and last week I had my ‘Pain Management review’ which is a short meeting with the lead Occupational Therapist and the Physiotherapist to see how we are getting on and if we have managed to put any of the strategies in place from the course.
