The things we have to do eh??

Looks like it is going to be another day sat on my bum.
By the end of the day my knees were giving me some right gip.Pain was radiating down my legs and i was swelling so in bed by half 7 with cushion under knees and hot water bottle placed on top. The fun part was getting up the stairs with my cuppa, laptop, tablets, phone and charger. I didn't want to ask AGAIN for someone to help me so it was a case of stretching to the furthest step i could reach and place all the items on there, pull myself up the stairs one by one till i got to the step with my stuff on, then moved it up again..what a mission..The other mission was getting into bed..I have a bed rail on my bed to enable me to lift myself up. Where my bed rail is though i need to get into bed near the bottom and pull myself up into bed doing this when you are feeling rough and tired seems like such a task, but of course i manage it with a smile on my face(while going grrr and ouch in my head lol). The tough part is getting out the bed to go loo etc..I try and slide myself down the bed without loosing my pj bottoms lol and not bending my knees too much. Its a full time job in itself just to perform normal everyday tasks..I want paid for this lol...
I've got up this morning and didn't feel too bad until i started to go down the stairs, decided it was easier to slide down on my bum, pulling up me bottoms in between each step..trip to the kitchen to do the kids breakfast and lunch was a case of me holding on to everything i was able too, just so i could get there..Once that was done i decided to get back in to bed, give pain meds chance to kick in, which is where i am now and will probably stay for a wee while till things subside..Was meant to be going up town with my BM but there is no way i will be able to do that, even with sticks it will be too painful..
Lets see what the rest of the day brings...
