I had a couple of good days with the pain killers
increase the exercise
and now the pain seems to have become immune
it has returned with a vengeance
in spite of the pain killers

hobbling around town, its so painful I feel dizzy and sick
ive lost the sense of what is physical and what is mental
as there may be some sort of bug going on as well

I bumped into a young woman from the 12 step programmes
and tried to help her and then felt worse afterwards
I think she had alot of anxiety and depression going on

and there is not enough support out there isn't it

like her on the internet for instance
you can put up an issue immediately, and people respond to it
but people in real life dont do that
so you can end up giving out more support than you are receiving out there
if you know what I mean ?

Zoe hope you feel better soon. Not sure what to say about the pain you are feeling just that I hope it gets better. I am glad you had a few good days there. I know it is hard helping others takes a lot out you. All I can do is smile give an affirmation and that's all. No money or listening to things way to stressful for me. Lots of get betters sent your way Love and hugs Jules

Aspirin is an interesting medicine. I use it (sparingly). Follow the instructions in the pack.

Yes. Examine your self state, and consider. You've done very well.

I phoned the doctors today and they were going to send an ambulance
after asking some questions,
waited for a paramedic to phone
and she decided not to after hearing I'm on mh medication
and became slightly patronising after that

so now I have to stay in tomorrow as well trying to contact them
because the surgery was closed for training today

maybe resting will improve things with my hip joint anyway
