Bed rest

with 4 comments

Hi all

My last post seems to have published, to my relief. I thought it was the end of my blogging career, because I don’t have it in me to change servers again.

I’m in a bit of a pickle at the moment. I have injured my right shoulder muscle swimming. A sports injury, doesn’t that sound impressive? 😉 I know exactly how I did it. As I finish each lap, I sort of twist my body around, using my right hand. On Sunday, I did this 70 times (I did 72 laps) and I felt a twinge in my shoulder at one stage. From yesterday, it was bloody sore – hope I haven’t done serious damage. Why I’m in a pickle, is that I rely heavily on my arms to compensate for lack of strength and balance in my legs. So I’m really taking care of my shoulder at this stage. I’m doing as little as possible with my right arm and haven’t even gone downstairs today, as that will mean leaning on the hand-rail. (There is only one on the right hand side). Basically, I’m doing everything I can to help it mend. I’ve realised how important my arms are to me. As soon as my shoulder is feeling better, I’m going to embark on a special stretching program.

Michael and family went eating out. It was touch and go, but I decided to stay home. Getting washed and dressed alone would have been too much for my shoulder. I was there in spirit, though, lol.

My lovely detox practitioner is coming to see me tomorrow here at home for a session. Very kind of her. I don’t want to miss a detox again, but I can’t really use my walker, because of the shoulder, and it’s quite hard getting into her house, as there is a fancy little footpath, made from planks of wood, leading into it. Don’t know how I’ll tidy up though, with this arm. Oh well.

Afterwards, she will be going to see that other lady with ms that I mentioned who is bedridden. I so hope that the Ion Cleanse will help her too.

Must go now, even typing is aggravating arm.

  2. Hey, I do stairs with railings on the right side all the time… you face the railing, hold it with your left hand, and walk down one step at a time sideways, slowly… heh. I’ve got all that stuff down. Hopefully you won’t ever need to!! I hope it’s better very soon.

    I’m off for my first ion cleanse in a couple hours!
