Warning! Rant ahead!
I'm fed up. Really really fed up. For those of you asking "why is she talking about feeling full?" Its a word we used for bored, frustrated..etc..
I'm fed up with reading
I'm fed up when I'm not reading
I turn on the TV and get fed up because there's nothing on
I'm fed up in work and on my days off
But mostly I'm just fed up with pain!
I've never had great hips but I've always ignored it. Being a bit sore after a long walk up the mountains or a long day at work, that's normal right? Apparently not. About a year ago the pain started to get stronger and more frequent. Then almost over night it got so bad I was unable to get up off the sofa because of the pain.
After weeks of suffering (stupidity on my part) I eventually went to see the doc but I still thought I was going mental to be honest. Many doctors visits, an X-Ray and an MRI later showed degeneration in the joints so the doc loaded me up with every pain killer imaginable and booked an appointment with a specialist.
After months of waiting I finally got a date for the appointment but in the mean time, if I stand for too long I ache but if I sit for too long either I'm in bits!
This part was the hardest for me because I used to love sitting in my big comfy chair for hours at a time with a good book. This pain has really put me off reading :(
This time next week Ill be that much closer to a diagnoses...which will more than likely be degenerative arthritis. Did I mention that I'm 27 and not 77?
Anyway that's enough ranting. I've just re read this and it makes me sound like such a whiny bitch!
Hopefully when I get a more effective method pain relief I'll be back to posting on a more regular basis.
For now I'm off to get drunk and stand on my head or whatever else I have to do to get comfortable!
