When it hits, it hits hard.
It’s one of those days when we’re having one hour sunshine, one hour cloudy and one hour cloudy with rainfall. It’s one hour cloudy with heavy rainfall at the moment and both pairs of working trousers are hanging outside to dry after I have washed them 🙂 🙂 🙂 I wouldn’t have mind the rain if it wasn’t for the fact that it brings out more flies, we’ve been lucky so far this year and I’m afraid that luck has run out with the rain this time.
It’s a bad day for me today, I have a disease called Bechterews disease and it comes and goes as it pleases and today it has arrived with full strength. It is a rheumatic disease that mostly hits the muscle attachments and inflames both the muscles and the ligaments. It can also attack the cartilage in mostly the hips but it can pretty much hit anywhere in the body. It is my immune system that attacks my body and when it does it hurts like h..l!
Don’t feel sorry for me, it’s not that bad in me when comparing with others that have this and normally it’s far between these attacks. It does help to move around and exercise, or to not stand still too much. So while writing this I sort of is rocking on the chair even if it isn’t a rocking chair 🙂 🙂 The problem is that when it hurts that bad that it is a problem to get out of bed one usually prefers to stay in bed 🙂 The first walk this morning was anything but fun but I know I have to walk around to make the pain go away.
So between showers I’ve been walking around and I have also planted some perennials in one of my flower beds. It’s easy to get down and it doesn’t hurt while working, it’s getting up that is the tricky part 🙂 🙂 🙂 After this I’ll lay down for a while with a heat pad towards my back, that can help some if I’m lucky. It’s raining again so the small plants I just planted will have a good start on their new life. It’s time to eat some too, both for me and my dogs. One of the side effects of having this disease is to lose ones appetite, not so for me I’m afraid 🙂 🙂 🙂
Have a great day!
