I was excited when radiotherapy made putting my socks on a lot easier. My new shoulder pain has stopped that dead in the water. So I’ve ordered a clumsy looking gadget to assist.
The genuine agony of getting out of bed today has made me wonder if I should be in hospital. I’ve taken my range of morphine and that’s helped a little, but there’s still a quite severe pain. And I can’t reach my feet without more of that agony.
Perhaps I’m a little slow ordering these devices that I need. Perhaps I’m still determined to be self sufficient. But it’s getting tougher. I’ve had to cancel my podiatrist and a catchup with old work colleagues today. I just don’t have the strength.
