I was sent home from hospital with Tramadol pain killers along with paracetamol and ibuprofen. As a child whatever was wrong with me, I was given one junior aspirin, my leg could be falling off and it would be one junior aspirin. I think this way of looking at things has stuck with me, I have always been reluctant about taking any medication. When I started taking the Tramadol they caused more problems than the pain. I can just about deal with the pain, I grit my teeth, swear and get through it. Feeling sick, dizzy and not being able to keep my eyes open was something that had me struggling to cope so I haven't taken them today and will see if they have been causing the problems. I will keep taking the other meds for the pain, lets hope I feel 'more myself'.
I managed to get out into the garden today to check on the veg patch. (yes I was wondering around the garden in P. J's, I can't fit into proper clothes yet) It was warmer than I thought it would be and so lovely to get some sun on my face. This beautiful butterfly landed on the chair beside me and seem to enjoy the sun as much as me. A beautiful red butterfly landed on my shoulder, but disappeared before I could get a good look.
There was someone keeping a sneaky eye on me.
They are being nibbled by something, but still growing away happily. Talking of happy.....
I can't tell you how good it felt to have a bath and wash my hair today....... little steps :)
I still haven't decided on a book to read, maybe if I'm not 'off my face' on painkillers I will be able to concentrate more and get into a good book :)
I made a few more crochet circles :)
The sun on my face :)
See, more happy faces today :)
Thank you for your comments as always. I am also so happy for Sue from Our New Lives in the Country who has found her dog. It brought tears to my eyes.
