|The way to start the day|
A couple of weeks ago I was in so much pain (especially in my shoulder) that I couldn't even make my bed. It was really awful. I was very grateful that someone came around and got my housework up-to-date, and especially that she changed my sheets. (She also washed the curtains - my bedroom seems so fresh and clean again - it's just amazing.)
Now, I've been on the higher dose of prednisolone for a while. This week I'm back at Curves (yet again - I've missed being able to work out so much) and..... wait for it...... I washed the car! I washed the outside Sunday afternoon. Today, I'm going to clean out rubbish and wash the inside of the windows, and later in the week I plan to vacuum it.
Being out of pain is so incredible! It's how I imagine "normal" people feel most of the time (apart from the two hour nap during the day). I have this amazing sense of freedom, like I could do practically anything.
