Yesterday i was struggling to walk, today i am able to walk with slight discomfort.. It just amazes me how arther can affect us one day and be different the next. Today arther has been niggling at my wrists/hands, elbows and ankles.. all at the same time some occasions, i didn't know when to go ouch first lol..
Something as simple as eating my dinner was a problem earlier, i was picking up my food with a metal handled fork which bizarrely was hurting my hand with the slightest touch, i tried changing hand and it was the same, so i thought i would try a different fork so i tried a plastic handled fork and for some reason that was fine, i think it was because the handle was thicker and wasn't so painful when holding it either..I know there is cutlery out there for people with arthritis but i am not ready to go down that route yet, will put it off for as long as possible..It's funny how something that can make life easier for us can also scare us half to death..When i look at arthritis i think of old and the trouble is alot of the adaptions out there are old looking and are not encouraging for us youngish ones lol..Same as sticks, i know that they do coloured crutches and jazzy sticks but the ones i use are specially adapted to make it easier on my hands...Have decided anyway that i am going to get some Christmas ribbon(not material, the shiny one) and wrap that round for the festive season, add some glitz and glam to my life lol..
This post has took ages to write, having to stop to rest hands lol, am off now.. lets see what tomorrow brings.xxx
