Last 2 weeks from Hell!
I don't usually post on here so the fact I am means I am at the final straw and only you all will know what it feels like.
I had my vaccine on the 25th Jan and I was fine. No side effects which is good. I was then able to start my new Rheumatology medication Friday 12th February. Yeah, that stopped on Tuesday also and I am not allowed to start it again until I speak to my Rheumatologist to after I also got given some stool softeners which done its job and I stopped taking them straight away. Even though I have stop taking the stool softener tablets it continued to fall out of me. It is now Thursday 18th February and I have managed some soup.
In 2 weeks, I have lost 1stone in weight, but it isn't actual weigh it is my nutrients etc. All I want to do is sleep.
I am hurting so much it is unreal. I have pain in the bottom of my feet and because of this I have to roll a cold freezing bottle of water under my foot. I am cold anyway. It numbed it a little bit.
Because I am sitting all the time my right hip is really hurting as well. I have had enough of this pain now. It doesn't help that I have had another letter saying that I am shielding until 30th March.
That definitely was the final nail in the coffin. x
My husband who is my Full Time Carer slept in the recliner next to me in the Front room in case I needed to go to the toilet. I woke up about 5.40am and I struggled to get up to get to the toilet and I ended up having to pee in a pot 😪
I'm 40-year-old and it has come to this now. I am getting a glide along commode; I have a hospital bed and I don't share a bed with my husband anymore. I can't sit on the sofa with him and Callum because I can't get back off the sofa.
I feel like I'm defeated., I can't do it no more. (Don't worry I won't do anything stupid I hurt already) x
