Just a quickie to say, please bear with me! I'm not up to answering emails and general interaction because last week I finally went out to town and walked on pavements for the first time since before Christmas, I have been getting so much better. I just had to walk to my Doc's surgery, a few streets away, but knew there was something wrong on the way back, later I stiffened up and over the weekend I have gradually slipped right back down the bloody snake of pain and am back at square one waiting to roll a six, no ladders in sight.
I have been in agony (no exaggeration) and so took the high dose painkillers in desperation but where they normally take about 5/7 days to make me ill, this time is was just 24 hours. This afternoon I have felt safe enough to take the low dose again, thankful for some relief at least, but I had to wait while everything else came out of my system. The last 48 hours were hell and I don't have anything sunny to say. So if I'm not around for a while and the shop closes again for a bit, well, wish me luck, I need some right now!
