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.
