Tuesday 10th to Wednesday 11th May
So I woke up this morning feeling pretty dreadful. I thought I might be like this after my very busy few days. I was still very tired and my whole body was aching. And I had to go to work … 😏
As soon as I arrived I was asked if I wanted to work later today and as I always do I just agreed. But after I had been on my till for only a few minutes I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do it today so I told myself I shouldn’t be silly and I let them know that I just wouldn’t be able to do it 😠
I found it very hard to concentrate at first, I think as my body was struggling and my head was definitely in a completely different place, as this was my first time back after a very busy few days.
I could also feel my stitches pulling as obviously my arm was getting a lot of constant use, for the first time since I’ve had them put in really.
It was a difficult shift to get through 😖
When I got back in the afternoon I basically just collapsed on the sofa!!! I kept resting my head back and closing my eyes and almost falling asleep but then I would make myself sit up straight again! I don’t think I was very productive at all for the rest of the day.
Wednesday, I still wasn’t feeling any better and had yet another shift at work to get through
It is great being able to do things and get out and about again. Before my transplants when I was suffering with ascites, I couldn’t even sit up without being in terrible pain and this time last year I was still very weak and unsteady on my feet, there is no way I would have been able to even contemplate doing any of what I have done over the last few days. So my life HAS improved in so many ways. It just seems to be that my body still takes a bit of a bashing and it takes me a little while longer to recover if I am active for long periods of time. And – let’s not forget, I’m pretty old now too 👵
Yes I AM tired. But even despite that I’m not sleeping very well. Doesn’t make sense does it? Too much going on in my head I expect.
And just to keep you up to date with things, I still have the wart and it’s a week later now. It obviously has decided it’s going to be a very stubborn little thing ☹️
